Overview

A Book in the Mates Series

Ethan Abbatt is a wolf shifter who can't shift. Plagued by pain and weakness all his life, he hopes to find an honorable death by joining his pack mates in a vampire attack. Instead, Ethan learns two things: draining his blood releases his pain and his wolf, and he has a true mate-a vampire named Miguel.

Miguel Rodriguez is more than four centuries old. Strong, powerful, and vicious, he walks through life as a shadow, without happiness or affection. When a young shifter tells Miguel they're true mates, destined to be together, Miguel sends him away. But Ethan is persistent, and Miguel can't resist for long. Once Miguel gives in, being together comes naturally. The challenge is keeping themselves alive so they can stay by each other's side until forever comes.

    Awesome

    This was a great follow up to "Wake Me Up Inside." It was written after that novel, but actually takes place before the time frame in the other book. They can be read in either order. As a sequel, it explains how much of the events in the first book came to be. As a prequel, it foreshadows what's to come. This follows the journey of a weak shifter who doesn't fit in with his pack and a centuries old vampire who has lived lifetimes cold and alone. Together they make each other whole and strong because they were made to be true mates to each other. Very sweet and passionate. 400 pgs.

    Another beautiful story from Cardeno C. Having met Miguel and Ethan in Wake Me Up Inside, I was excited to read their story and learn how they became mates, especially considering the animosity that shifters have for vampires in this series. Until Forever Comes did not disappoint as the author weaves a romance that is distinctly different than any I've ever read before.

    The book opens with Ethan facing death via suicide by vampire as he can no longer bear his painful existence, both physically and emotionally. Much to his disappointment, he wakes the next morning still alive, but having finally shifted – about a decade later than he should have. His relief at the situation is short-lived and he soon seeks out Miguel, the vampire who spared his life, and who seems to be the star of some rather erotic dreams. It turns out that Ethan isn't the only one feeling the pull and when Miguel finally responds to the draw between them it is hot.

    But as with other books I have read by Cardeno C., it is the romance and building of the relationship between Ethan and Miguel that makes this such an enjoyable read. As someone who grew up in a small rural town, I have to say that the author writes redneck well. There were so many phrases used that I grew up hearing. Even more impressive is that Miguel's voice was distinctly different than Ethan's and his pack members and I never noticed a slip in the characters' language. I find that with each of the author's books I read, I become more and more of a fan and Until Forever Comes is no exception. I'm looking forward to starting the next book in the series momentarily. 

    I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

    A paranormal LGBT novel

    Until Forever Comes, by Cardeno C, is the second installment in the Mates Series. I have not yet read Wake Me Up Inside, but have been told that reading this book first is better, since it is set chronologically before the first book. Having read Cardeno’s Home and Family series, I was looking forward to reading more of her work.

    The book starts slow, until about chapter 8, 30% into the book, when I could get into the groove of the story. The background information about Ethan and the reasons he goes to town with his friends and how he is treated by everyone in his pack, other than his family, is cursory. But once Miguel accepts Ethan, the story seems to flow along.

    What is most interesting about this novel is the description of the relationship between shifters and vampires. In most paranormal novels, it is the vampires that are portrayed and the ones feeling superior to humans. In this story/series, however, Cardeno C. portrays the shifters as the elitist and the vampires as the ones trying to assimilate into human society.

    What I also enjoyed is that Cardeno C. portrays Ethan as a wolf with a host of issues, but the one who, according to his sister, would save them all. My favorite part of the story is the interaction between Miguel and Katherine. I see her as a petulant, inquisitive child, even though she is well over 300 years old.

    Even though one of the lead characters in this paranormal LGBT novel is a Latin man, none of the story line actually focuses on that. The references to Miguel’s heritage are minor. It is almost as if the fact that Miguel is of Latin descent is ancillary.

    I have just begun reading the first installment in the series and will definitely continue to read Cardeno C’s work.

    Great read

    I really enjoyed the first book in this series, and I loved this one even more. Very engaging characters - I could certainly read a lot more about them!! Overall, I found the story to be intriguing, entertaining and intertwined in a very unique way with the first book.

    I will definitely be adding more books from this author to my shelves!
