Review by: Stacy Palm
Alright ladies, did you get everything on your list to Santa? Well, even if you did, go add a bonus gift to your pile from yourself and pick up this book (and the first book in the series!) When I think of all the talented writers throughout the years in the romance genre beginning with V.C. Andrew, Nora Roberts, and then moving on to Kelley Armstrong, Karen Marie Moning, and Sylvia Day I can honestly say that Kat Bastion is now added to that list of talented favorite writers.
This novella picks up the story with a Christmas twist and focuses on Robert, Iain's trusted Commander, whom we met briefly in the first novel. What I love about this...
novella is that the growth in Kat Bastion's writing is admiringly evident. While I adored her first novel, this one is even better. There is not one lull at moment in this story, every page kept me captivated and I would've easily read it without putting it down had it not been for real life interruptions (damn those kids and office work, lol.) Speaking of LOL, it's not often that I truly get so connected to characters that I literally laugh out loud or cry, but there were moments I did laugh loudly (i.e. Kindle reference) and visibly smirk to the point that my children were wondering what Mommy was having so much fun reading!
I think that Kat Bastion has a long and successful future ahead of her. I for one, will be an avid fan of this series and any other future works. So it is with great encouragement that I urge you to purchase and read these books. For your convenience I've added links to purchase below for both this and the first book through Amazon and keep your eyes peeled for the second complete novel of the series coming out this year, Born in Mist and Legend. Happy Reading!
