Claimed: Book 1 in the Brides of the Kindred
on April 04, 2011
I have to say that I have been a fan of Evangeline's books for the last few years, both m/m and m/f. The variety of books she writes really is incredible and extremely imaginative. This one is probably my all time new favorite of any of her m/f sci-fi books to date. It is also a really great length novel (564 pages on my Sony ereader). There is nothing I hate more than paying $5-6 dollars for a book listed as a full length novel and when I load it onto my ereader it comes in at less than 200 pages long. Definitely not a problem with this one and would have been worth spending more to purchase it than the ridiculously inexpensive $2.99 I spent.
Since so many people have already commented on the plot I won't repeat anything here about it, all I can say is if for no other reason you have to read this book for the 'molesting mat' scene in the bathroom. I haven't laughed like that in a long time! Plus I am so looking forward to Sylvan's icy heart being melted by Sophia in the next book.
Evangeline was kind enough to reply to an email I sent to her and she let me know that the next book in the series 'Hunted' will probably be out in a couple of months and is longer and a little darker. Then Kat's book 'Sought' is after that (this one is with the Twin Kindred, won't that be a fun read!). They will definitely be going on my pre-order list.
So if you haven't read any of her books before than this is the one to start with. If for some reason you don't like sci-fi romances than check out some of her other contemporary, paranormal or erotic ones. If you want to try any of her m/m books than 'The Assignment' is an absolute must!
