Beautifully Written Opinion Changing Novel While reading Brandy L Rivers’ newest Others of Edenton story, I openly admitted to her that I had never really liked either of the main characters and was hesitant to believe that she could make me care about them. But, to quote myself in a conversation with Brandy, “I'm only 41% through but absolutely love Preston and Dacia ... I was on the fence about Preston for a while but you've really made him into someone pretty awesome.” It takes a talented writer to be able to completely turn around a reader’s opinion about characters. After seven books of not liking either Preston or Dacia, I can honestly say that I didn’t care if either of them ever got a happy ending. I now see how wrong I was. It’s like our parents, teachers, etcetera are always telling us: don’t judge a book by its cover. In Mending Scars - the eighth installment of the Others of Edenton – Rivers makes her readers re-think everything they thought they knew about the cavalier mage and haughty half-fey. Never expecting to settle down, Preston has finally figured out just want he wants, but what he wants is Dacia. Dacia – hurt countless times in the past - doesn’t trust easily, so when Preston comes knocking, her instinct is to run from him. Rivers bands these two unlikely allies together in the quest to capture a Fae fugitive who has been terrorizing both the others of Edenton and Seattle. The fact that he’s Dacia’s father only further complicates the story. Torn between how she feels for Preston and how she has long viewed herself and the world, Dacia is forced to make a choice between embracing who her father expects her to be and who she wants to be. It’s in the quiet moments of the story that Rivers was able to completely transform this reader’s opinion of Preston and Dacia. Action sequences can teach you a lot about a character’s loyalties and skills, but it’s when their defenses are down that you really learn who they are. It’s these quiet moments that Rivers excels at. So many times just one or two lines between characters said more about where Preston and Dacia were mentally than could have been grasped in an entire chapter of action. Now that I look back on the scenes in previous novels that made me dislike these two, I see more than their actions, I see the motivation behind those actions. It takes a writer with true skill and forethought to plan actions and consequences so far in advance and have those plans come to such amazing fruition.

Love this Series. My one problem is they aren't listed in order. I'm now looking to begin the Seattle set.

I've been a fan of Dacia and Preston since the beginning. Dacia, especially, as I always felt there was a tremendous sadness in her, at always being last place and never having her own thing (or person) that gave her purpose. Of course, Preston was absolutely the right man for the job, though he had some growing to do of his own first. I loved watching them both show their softer, more vulnerable sides here, while they both worked through their relationship and the many changes going on within their families, both good and bad. All the threads of the series have slowly been coming together, and this one felt very cohesive. Rivers did Dacia and Preston, and their long-coming happiness, great justice here.

*** Preston and Dacia are Hot!! *** By far my favorite book so far! I love the chemistry between Preston and Dacia! They will be drawn into the battle of their lives! Who will survive? Will Preston prove to Dacia that she comes first? This book was a wild ride, family is revealed, secrets are exposed, loyalties tested and friendships strengthened! You really see the growth Dacia has gone through during this series, will she stay on the right path? Definite must read!

Preston...Oh My Word! He is the definition of HOT! This book does not disappoint with the steamy scenes and it has a magnificent storyline. There are twists and turns that I never expected. This author does a fantastic job of meshing reality with the paranormal! LOVED this book!!!!
