Blade Dance by D.L. McDermott
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
WOW! I simply couldn't put this book down. This series just keeps getting better and better.
When I first started the book I was a bit shocked - am I really supposed to get behind the "bad guy" from the previous books? He's the bad guy - I won't want him to have his happy ending, let alone have him end up with a woman I might like. These two met a little while ago, but who knew that they would become my new fave?
Ann Phillips is the best. She's a tough teacher who stands up for what she believes in, but is able to follow her intuition when it guides her. Growing up in the foster system with an anger problem, she's got her own coping mechanisms that keep her from blacking out and having one of her "episodes." Meeting Finn, the quintessential bad boy, has thrown her into a world where everything she knows is called into question.
Finn is a bad guy. There's no doubt about it - he did bad things in the name of revenge. He's still a bit damaged from the druid abuse and the loss of his wife. This has led to the slow deterioration of his following and his general enjoyment of life. All of this changes when Ann marches into his life. These two do the best for both of them. Finn pushes Ann beyond her limits while helping her accept her "gifts" and Ann makes Finn try to become a better person.
With a child at risk, these two along with Finn's estranged family must work together with the most unlikely ally. The group has to work together to make sure the little boy gets home safe. The characters, the action, the sizzling hot chemistry all worked together to make a truly addictive and satisfying read.
