One of the best stories I've read this year! The story was very original, enough suspense so I read into the wee hours each night. I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a good murder mystery. The story unfolded at a very fast pace but not so fast that it was hard to keep up.
Note to author - several typos but the story was so good it didn't take away from the story for me. Specifically punctuation, the use of "to" rather than "too" and a few mispelled words. Hated it when the accidental death occured - I really liked that character. You really did a fabulous job!
Horizon (Elemental Enmity Book IV)
on Jan. 26, 2013
Hello, Smashwords? I NEED MORE STARS!!!
Horizon is the final book in the Elemental Enmity series, and what an ending!! This was one of those series that will stay with me for years to come. Five stars isn’t even close to enough!
How do you describe a story that moved you, that days later you cannot get out of your head? I’m going to have to try, but know there is no way my review will do this story justice. It starts out after Rayla has been rescued by Heath, the two are in love, but she is still bonded to Zach (Ammon). Zack searches for his bond-mate and she is physically ill from their separation, but her heart only wants Heath. This disagreement between Rayla’s heart and body was heart-wrenching.
When Zack finds Rayla she vows not to give herself over fully to him. She doesn’t hide her feelings for Heath and Zack (who I expected to EXPLODE) accepts her, thankful to have whatever pieces of her she's willing to share. Another Fae, more powerful than the five Fae Lords sets his sights on Rayla. He’s vile, evil, powerful, and one of the most horrible villains I’ve come across in the paranormal romance genre. I won’t say anymore because it would be impossible to do so without spoilers.
The story is eloquently written. I love the way Christie Rich writes, every scene is written so vividly that I feel like I’m in the story. Every scene is full of action and *swoooooon* she makes me fall for every male character! How is that possible? I hate love tri-angles, but she has accomplished a love-pentagram (five sided – five Fae Lords) that I could not put down!! Her characters are multi-dimensional and her plot is deeply layered.
Get the first book in this series, FIVE, (it’s free from all book stores). Read it, and then try to tell me I’m wrong. I know you’ll fall in love with Christie Rich’s writing, just as easily as you fall in love with her characters.
Congratulations, Christie, on another HOME RUN!! I’m sad to see that this series has ended, but the ending was pure magic. Thanks so much for sharing it with the world!
