Serpent's Kiss by Thea Harrison review

Serpent's Kiss by Thea Harrison (Elder Races #2)

won from The Bookaholic Cat

Synopsis from Goodreads
Recently, Vampire Queen Carling's power has become erratic, forcing her followers to flee. Wyr sentinel Rune is drawn to the ailing Queen and decides to help find a cure for the serpent's kiss-the vampyric disease that's killing her. With their desire for each other escalating they will have to rely on each other if they have any hope of surviving the serpent's kiss...

Although Serpent's Kiss is not as fantastic as Dragon Bound it's miles better than Storm's Heart.


I've already mentioned that my biggest problem with the previous book was lack of spark between the couple. Tiago's character and constant moodiness didn't help.


Rune and Carling on the other hand suit each other very well. They are both cool, collected and full of inner wisdom. Rune is also sexy as hell. Carling as an ancient Egyptian vampire queen goes through some absolutely unexpected transformations while she is slowly getting back her will to live.


The plot twist with time travel and its implications was very intriguing too. However the world-building though tantalising wasn't enough for me. But that's my personal complaint. I always want more world-building, and Thea did create a fascinating reality where all sorts of paranormals live in the open.


Overall I wholly recommend this series (just skip book #2) and I'm looking forward to Oracle's Moon which comes out in March next year.

Dragon Bound
Storm's Heart

Учитывая, насколько плохой оказалась вторая книга, третья, хоть и не так хороша как первая, всё-равно вышла интересной, так что будем читать дальше.


Рун и Карлин в отличии от второй пары подходят друг другу. Они оба сохраняют хладнокровие и продумывают свои ходы, оба прожили очень долгую жизнь.


Трансформация Карлин оказывается интересным сюрпризом, как и сюжетная ноходка с путешествиями во времени и их последствиями.


Мне очень нравится сексуальность и хороший юмор в этой серии, а также увлекательное построение мира. Рекомендую первую и третью книгу, и жду выхода четвёртой в марте следующего года.


8/10
