This paranormal series just keeps getting better

Redeeming Nick coverRedeeming Nick by Annabelle Jacobs

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

In Redeeming Nick we find out more about the cocky witch who is Mase’s best friend and why he’s been so cagy about the circumstances which led him moving up to the Dark Forest Pack area.

He’s a bit of an enigmatic character so it’s amusing to see him stunned into silence when he meets Axel’s cousin Dathal, a member of the Fae Guard sent through the Gateway to help with the investigation into the Blue Alhuirn smuggling.

Dathal is a mysterious violet eyed Fae and Nick cannot understand why he’s so drawn to him. It seems the same is true for Dathal and there’s plenty of speculation among their friends as to just why that might be 😉

Annabelle then takes the reader on a journey which seems like it can only end in heartbreak as Nick and Dathal’s magically connection has unexpected results while they’re burning up the sheets with a chemistry that’s off the charts.

There are unexpected developments in the investigation, there’s something odd going on with Max and his flat (and pack) mate Jake, Axel and Talis are still ignoring each other (and thank the lawd their book is up next!) and we have danger almost around every turn.

The adrenaline rush is really pumped up in this book as the plot twists and turns as the net draws closer around those responsible for the smuggling ring and there’s an unwelcome return from a Hunter group with connections to a traumatic time in Axel’s past.

As ever the world-building is second to none as we get to visit the Fae Realm and Annabelle creates a vision of a place where everything is a little bit lusher, brighter and shinier, simply just more than the human world.

Along the way Dathal and Nick’s connection roots firmly in their magic and each begins to feel a pull when they’re apart which adds a level of tension to the narrative outside of what’s happening with the police work that I really appreciated.

When the shoe finally drops and the proverbial hits the fan, they have to give in to the forces that stand in their way and just hope that fate will be kind.

I loved everything about this book. The pacing is superb, it has lulls where you get a chance to take a breath, scorching hot sex scenes between them in which their magic comes along for the ride, some mystery and further developments in the series long arc as well as a glimpse of what’s to come.

Getting these books early is both a blessing and a curse, because now I have to wait to see if Axel and Talis will finally get over themselves enough to fix what’s gone wrong between them and to discover what’s happening with Max and Jake’s pack that’s bringing them grief.

June can’t come soon enough (although I’m likely to get it a bit early because I am a smug beta reader!

As ever, I beta read this book for Annabelle.

Lots going on in this third irresistible dragons entry from Nora

416X3B1UFwL._SY346_Dragon’s Fight by Nora Phoenix

My Rating: 4 out of 5

There’s a lot of plot leftovers from book two which get moved along in this entry from Nora and – you’ll all be pleased to read – the relationship cliffhanger she dropped at the end of Dragon’s Honor is also sorted out!

Jermon, Riordan and Wilmer are struggling to deal with the later’s amnesia, caused by the horrible injuries he suffered when the dragon slayers attached the settlement in the previous book.

There’s also something weird going on with their omega and with the Murphy’s hanging around and generally being utterly unhelpful and, in some cases, downright rude and threatening, things are a confusing mix for this throuple.

I thoroughly enjoyed this latest entry and it was at times painful, others joyous, to see how patient Jermon and Riordan were with Wilmer as he struggled to get any of his memories of the past two years back.

However, love will out, and as they spent more time together, Wilmer found himself drawn again to both of the men who’d told him they were all fated mates. I really liked how organically this felt as Nora brought the three of them back together again.

With all the other stuff going on in the background, the romance didn’t feel like it was neglected at all, it all blended perfectly into the plot and I was enthralled by everything that was going on.

My only reason for not giving this book five stars is that I would have liked more time with the three of them once they’d reconnected as a throuple but I’m very much looking forward to the next book in the series and seeing where the story goes next.

Gah I wasn’t expecting the cliffie!

Dragon's-HonorDragon’s Honor by Nora Phoenix

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Gah, if I’d realised we were going to end up with this triad’s romance running over two books I’d have been prepared for the cliffhanger 🤣

I expect cliffhangers relating to the series’ overarching plot, I wasn’t thinking I’d get a relationship one as well because the first book wrapped up the romance between Rhene and Erwan.

It’s not necessarily a bad thing, just a tad annoying when the three of them are so sweet together and were just beginning to navigate their more unusual mates bonding.

There’s some really big developments in the main storyline that I won’t be spoiling, but I’m very excited to see where Nora is going to take them.

And the slow-burning nature of Jermon, Wilmer and Riordan’s romance is brilliantly done with a friendship that turns into more as both alphas help the omega recover from his experience at the hands of Jermon’s dragon clan.

I’m thoroughly enjoying this spin-off from the Iressistable Omegas series as it widens out the universe we first met there.
