Reseña del editor

Able to wield thunder and lightning, wyr sentinel Tiago Black Eagle has ruled the skies for centuries. His massive build and thunderous power make him one of the wyr's best weapons. And he's the one sent to protect Tricks, heir to the Dark Fae throne, when she's almost assassinated in Chicago. Soon Tiago and Tricks will fall prey to the stormy hunger that engulfs them-a passion that will shake the very foundation of all the worlds.

I really struggled with how to review this book. It's rare I encounter a problem like this one, but it's happened nonetheless: I like the author, loved the first book in this series, I even thought the writing in *this* story was good...I just couldn't stand the characters, Tricks in particular. Maybe I should commend the author for making the heroine's annoying qualities so pervasive and realistic that I actually struggled to keep reading. That must be a sign of great skill, right? Here's the thing: there is this old Meg Ryan movie called French Kiss where Meg's character is talking about women who annoy her, little girls who "smile when they're sad, pout when they're happy, say yes when they mean no, and no when they mean yes." This is Tricks exactly. She wears pigtails. She babytalks frequently, saying things like "Sowwy" instead of "Sorry". At one point Tiago accuses her of sex-kitten manipulations, and he's right. I didn't mind Tiago one way or another: he seemed kind of cardboard-ey to me, like one of those Fathead wall decals; his role really could have been filled by any ancient alpha male type guy.

I really loved Dragon Bound and I especially liked the fish out of water presented by Pia. In this genre it's not unusual to have larger than life heroines who never make a mistake and who never need help in kicking butt and taking names. It was refreshing to see a normal woman who panics, cries sometimes, acts bossy other times, but who ultimately gets the job done. Tricks, unlike Pia, was just an idiot. And it's not even like I have a major bias against "too stupid to live heroines" because I adore old Julie Garwood historicals and she's famous for idiot women characters.

At the end of the day, I will think of this book as a pit stop on the way to Rune's story. I've got it pre-ordered and can't wait, despite Tricks attempting to waylay me with her psycho Playmate of the Month personality.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Another winner from Thea Harrison 2 de agosto de 2011

Thea Harrison has a gift for writing sexy Alpha heroes. First, she gave us Dragos... And now we have Tiago. (Purrr.) We first met the ancient thunderbird during the last story and honestly, I was a little disappointed that he would be the next Wyr to get his own book. We didn't really get to know him in Dragon Bound, except as a hulking, intimidating sentinel, who was fighting with Tricks. But sometimes an author knows what we want better than we do. This is one of those times.

As the story begins, Tricks has left the Wyr kingdom behind and is going to claim her place as the Queen of the Dark Fae. Things go bad quickly, when she becomes a target for assassination. So Dragos sends Tiago to find and protect her.

Even though Tiago and Tricks both worked for Dragos for hundreds of years, they didn't interact much. Now that they are thrown together, the fireworks are unmistakable. Tiago is commanding, powerful and sexy. And Tricks eats it up with a spoon. The sexual tension between these two was outstanding! What's more, there were plenty of opportunities for familiar tropes to take hold: lack of communication; big misunderstandings; self-sacrifice for the other person's supposed happiness or safety. I kept waiting for the inevitable, familiar roadblocks to fly up. There was one scene in a nightclub, where I was just so sure we were going to have all three devices take hold at once... I swear I was already rolling my eyes. But Thea Harrison sidesteps the conventional foils, leaving me jumping up and down on the sofa, hooting like an idiot. (Yes, I can admit that.)

In the meantime, there is a great storyline going on. We're treated to lots of action, as Tricks and Tiago fend off her enemies. And we've got a great mystery to solve as our couple works to figure out who is trying to kill her. As much as we learned about the Wyr in the last book, now we're getting a peek inside some of the other Elder Races. Harrison reveals more details about the inner workings of the Dark Fae and the Vampyres. And we travel to Adriyel, the magical Dark Fae land.

This book gave me everything I wanted. A hot Alpha hero, a smart and resourceful heroine... love, sex, action, adventure, strong secondary characters, and world building that is both consistent and easy to understand. The Elder Races series is a PNR fan's dream. Thank you, thank you, Thea Harrison. I'm pretty sure I love you. 5 stars.

1.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Soooo disappointed! 31 de agosto de 2011
Por Pamelia A. - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Libro de bolsillo|Compra verificada
OK. I loved "Dragon Bound" and would recommend it to anyone looking for a fun and different fast-reading paranormal romance. This book though... aiy-yai-yai! I must confess I haven't finished it. I got to page 244 (out of 303) and literally COULD NOT GO ON. My problem with this one is that the characters are not really characters at all. Tiago is a walking talking hormone-drenched battering ram of a warrior. That's it. That's all he is. No personality at all. I got REALLY tired of all the descriptive turgid language about how massive he was and how sexy that was to Tricks. Tricks is completely NOT the same as in the last book where she was fun and funny and witty and clever. In this book she mostly thinks about how big and sexy Tiago is and the rest of the time she has nightmares about the "tragic past"; worst of all though is how she completely hands her life and her decisions over to Tiago at every opportunity. It just doesn't work for me. I can't buy that either of these characters are as old as they are supposed to be. He reads about 30. She reads about 18. My reading experience with this book has been: pick up book, start reading a paragraph, roll my eyes (twice), set book down, lather, rinse, repeat. I will keep my pre-order of the next one and PRAY it has the same "something" "Dragon Bound" had; but that "something" is nowhere in "Storm's Heart".

Por Carol Mathis - Publicado en Amazon.com

So often sophomore books in a series are a disappointment, especially when the first is a spellbinder. Thea does not disappoint in this regard; her characters and plot continue to be fascinating, compelling, and hot. Others have already summmed up the plot so I shan't other than to say that I am mesmerized by the small clues and subtle twists in Thea's work. Tricks is a smart, feist heroine and Tiago is sexy as all getout. Can't wait for more of the Elder Races!

By the end of Dragon Bound, Dragos had killed the crooked Dark Fae King, Urien, setting up Tricks, whose real name is Niniane to be the new Queen. Niniane's father (the previous king before Urien) and family were slaughtered by Urien, but she escaped and for the past 200 years has taken refuge with the Wyr demesne. During this time, she became family to them - they accepted her, loved her and trained her.

But now she has a duty she must fulfill. It was decided that to show her strength, and for political reasons, to not drag the Wyr with her when she claims the throne - so off she goes alone. But things soon turn dicey. Her cousin and other Dark Fae companion attempt to assassinate her. Luckily her training and poison filled stiletto heels allow her to kill them and stay alive, only with a stab wound. Scared and tired, she flees to a hotel to hideout until she can think straight and heal. When members of Dragos' Wyr clan see this attack on a viral cell phone video and can't get in touch with her, Tiago, one of Dragos' warlords goes to find her.

One of the best trackers the Wyr have, Tiago soon finds Niniane, drunk, wounded, and just silly. Tiago feels a strong, overwhelming need to protect Niniane and becomes determined to get her safely to her coronation. But after another assassination attempt, this one from what looks like Wyr, they have quite the battle on their hands.

I loved and adored Dragon Bound earlier this year. Storm's Heart, book two in Thea Harrison's Elder Races series is a good follow up. I really love her voice, and the way she writes her characters. Tiago is just as bad ass as Dragos is. A hard core alpha, when the mating process starts, everyone better watch out, because he is going to have Niniane no matter what anyone says - even Niniane. He is so intense, so powerful, and he is nicknamed Dr. Death - and he earns that nickname time and time again in this book.

Tricks (as we know her from Dragon Bound) aka Niniane had me laughing out loud in the first few chapters of this book. Her and Tiago have known each other for 200 years, but have never acted on a physical attraction (which is my one complaint - I'll get to that in a minute) When Tiago tracks her down to her hotel room, Niniane is so drunk, the things that come out of her mouth (and said in her head) made me giggle non-stop. And of course that just pissed off Tiago more that he had to deal with an injured, drunk faerie.

*****
"Whoa," she said. She looked up - or down, as it were - at Tiago's crotch, which had stopped right in front of her. He was one scary mean-looking oversized barbarian, in black jeans, black boots and black leather vest. He bristled with weapons and anger, and muscles bulged everywhere. His crotch sported a significant bulge too. A very significant bulge. She licked her lips. She might be drunk but she wasn't dead. She wouldn't be forgetting this sight in a hurry.

Obsidian eyes glittered. "Tricks, what the hell? Seriously."
*****

In Dragon Bound, the romance was quick to happen and I didn't have a problem with it. But I did question in Storm's Heart, why now? Tiago and Ninane have known each other 200 years. Why the urgent mating and crazy feelings on both sides? Tiago just seems to come out of nowhere with this uber protectiveness. Now, once we get into the romance, I'm not complaining, I fell in love with both characters and I found their romance sweet and the actual build up - the doubt, the angst, the tension done well. They also have this very entertaining banter throughout the book.

*****
He stopped the SUV dead.

She sat frozen as she stared at him, her mouth open. The fancy hybrid engine bawled a complaint and stalled.

Tiago came around to the driver's side and yanked the door open, He gripped the edge of the roof with both hands and glared at her. He was already soaked. She watched with eyes gone huge and round as a drop of water slid down one lean, hard cheek where a muscle twitched.

The knife would had hurt too much for her to put on the seat belt. Wincing, she swiveled with care to face him. The rain pelted her bare legs and arms.

Maybe it was time to get cute. Her lower lip stuck out and her forehead wrinkled. In a small uncertain voice, she said, "Sowwy?"

If anything, that seemed to make him angrier.
*****

There are a fewer slower parts in the middle of this one, but I think this is a very solid follow-up to Dragon Bound and my excitement for this series is still very high. Besides the Fae and Wyr, we get a look into the vampire culture, and get a nice glimpse into Rune's future mate in book three.
