Embrace the Mystery by Caris Roane
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
This book felt like an epic fantasy quest with some vampires thrown in there, too. Oh, and there was also some fun sexy times to keep the romance readers satisfied.
While the other books in this series might have felt a little standalone, this one was definitely part of a set. Here we meet Batya, the daughter of a troll we’ve spent some time with in previous books. She’s been kind of stalked by Quinlan, a mastyr vampire who, for some reason, doesn’t think that his stalking could possibly have anything to do with a blood rose. Instead, he assumes that he is just out for some fun time in the bedroom (or any room, really), with the captivating Batya.
Batya has abandoned her birth-world for a life that seemed a bit simpler to her. Without the violence surrounding her, she is able to open her own clinic and art gallery. Her peace is quickly destroyed, however, when the big bad shows up at her doorstep making demands. This quick turn of events forces Batya and Quinlan to confront their feelings and embrace the journey ahead of them. Things that were once thought of as fables turn out to be so much more. While the romance took a bit of a back seat to the overall adventure, this still blended nicely with the rest of the series. You’d think that all the Mastyrs would be expecting their own blood rose now.
