We finally come to an end of our Kindred Kraze week. I hope you enjoyed this week as we went from beginning to end of Evangeline Anderson's Brides of the Kindred series. I have to say this is one of my new favorite series. Hot hunky aliens, feisty females, adventure, danger and steamy sex, what's not to love! This entire series was such a wild ride. Not only do you get to know so many great characters but you stay with them, following their story as you meet new ones along the way and fall in love with them too. Evangeline sucks you in and keeps you glued to the pages every time!
Now, I'd like to say, I read a LOT. One of my favorite things in a book is really connecting to the characters. When there is a female lead, do I relate to her? Can I see a little bit of me in this story? Luckily, women are complex creatures. We cannot be defined in a single word. We can be sweet, shy, goofy, stubborn, prideful, determined, sassy, proud and terrified. And that's just one woman. So that makes it a little easier for me to connect to all these widely different characters. Every single one. When the author writes the characters so well that you can look into the story and picture yourself there, that is a good book. As this week has gone by and you've seen each story in this series, I hope you see a little of you. Pick them up, get sucked in. If you like something a little out of this world, this is a series for you. I enjoyed it so much and I can't wait to see what she has next!
Now on to our last (but hopefully not last) book in this awesome series!
Nina is normal Florida girl with a job and a life and a grandmother she adores. But lately she’s been having disturbing dreams. Dreams of a man with a shadowed face—a man filled with pain and need and desire only she can slake. She fears him but at the same time, the dreams leave her breathless with need. Who is this dark stranger and what does he want of her?
Reddix is a Touch Kindred with an inverted Touch Sense—he can’t touch with his mind like others of his kind. Instead, he is doomed to endure their emotions like a physical invasion every time he’s around anyone. Desperation drives him to kidnap Nina—the girl he has been dreaming of. But he doesn’t take her out of love but as a sacrifice to one who claims she can cure his affliction.
Snatching Nina from her job, Reddix takes her on a journey to the stars that ends in disaster. Now, marooned on a strange planet they will have to learn to work together in order to survive. Can Nina forgive Reddix’s attack and gain his trust enough to heal him…or will his fate remain forever Shadowed?
Okay, so as a married individual, there are times where I wish I could tell what my Hubs was feeling. That would be super helpful right? Unless you couldn't turn it off. Which is exactly the problem Reddix has. Constantly feeling everyone's emotions like a physical force no matter what. So he becomes a man with a plan, a slightly skewed messed up plan, but a plan all the same. Enter Nina, our Native American sweetheart. She's been dreaming of the dark, brooding, slightly creepy hooded guy. What a shock when he comes and kidnaps her, literally and they crash on some random planet. They have so many obstacles to overcome to be together, including a hard headed Touch Kindred.
Witches, old fashion politics, alien dino people, and a love that wants to win. All of these exciting things and more in the latest of the Brides of the Kindred series by Evangeline Anderson. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
