I like Ryan's suspense books. Though here the suspense came more at the end, and when it came...baam! Crazy
This is a really wounded hero. He has nightmares from his time in the army, he has struggled with addiction, and he lost someone close tom him in a horrible twist of fate. But in a moment of light he met someone, she became pregnant, and now he wants to show to her that he can be the father their daughter needs.
Shelby was so sweet. She did not have a lot of experience with men since she has a dark secret hanging over here. It was crazy. What a psycho that is in the shadows! But she is a good woman, and she thinks Chase has turned a new leaf.
They become friends, they become more. They struggle and then the suspense part comes.
I enjoyed it. Two wounded people that deserved love in their lives.
All the other Ryan books I have listened to have had a female narrator, but this one had a male. And it worked really well. He does get the male voices right, and the female voices work so well to. Even the kid has the best voice. All in all a terrific choice
Chase Wilde never expected to fall in love, especially with Shelby Payne. Years before, one passionate night had drawn these two lost souls together. Then Chase left on deployment with the Army, while Shelby raised their baby alone. Now he's back, a wounded warrior determined to turn his life around. Shelby knows what it's like to lose everything, including her own family. So she offers him a bargain: if he can prove himself to be the man he says he is, she will let him into their daughter's life...and maybe even into hers.
Chase knows it will take a lot to prove to Shelby that there's more between them than the single night they spent together. She's everything he's ever wanted, including the voice of reason he needs to reconcile his past and be the man he wants to be for them both. But just as their lives come together, she's torn away from him by a dangerous person from her past, and saving her means saving himself . . . because he can't live without her.

I did feel that this book did not end on a high note. These books have been tough, gruesome and painful. But here there were some battles, but they all came through unscathed. Even when one was kidnapped she was safe. The book went from dark to more lightful. Which in these days is good, but at the same time it felt different from that which came before.
Isoka did not feel as powerful as before.
And Tori, I have a hard time believing she did all that.
Can't believe I say I wanted more death. i guess I should be happy it all worked out and they all lived happily ever after. So,a meh finish to the series.
Isoka has done the impossible--she's captured the ghost ship Soliton. With her crew of mages, including the love of her life Princess Meroe, Isoka returns to the empire that sent her on her deadly mission. She's ready to hand over the ghost ship as ransom for her sister Tori's life, but arrives to find her home city under siege. And Tori at the helm of a rebellion.
Neither Isoka's mastery of combat magic, nor Tori's proficiency with mind control, could have prepared them for the feelings their reunion surfaces. But they're soon drawn back into the rebels' fight to free the city that almost killed them.

The biggest problem here was definitely that this book could have been cut in half and still it would have felt like nothing had happened. Because nothing happened in this one. A girl is thinking how cold it is, a prince falls in love at first sight and that is the book for 500 pages. But the last 20 pages were intense. Only for those last 20 pages I would want more. Something big finally happened.
I have thought about this for a while now. Can't say I liked the main character whose name I already forgot. She is Jinn, she is cold all the time, she is destined to be queen. She says she has heard the devil but omg please show the devil then cos that would have brought some drama.
Persian world. I do not know more than that cos we are in a city, and yes she is cold most of the time. The country seem to dislike another country. Dunno more than that.
Karem is a prince with anger issues who falls in love at first sight and thinks about her all the time. Insta love like that that, nah.
Damn but those last 20 pages were so intriguing! But gods nothing happened in this book! Too long! Less is more.
Good narration, I guess the only thing that saved me
To all the world, Alizeh is a disposable servant, not the long-lost heir to an ancient Jinn kingdom forced to hide in plain sight.
The crown prince, Kamran, has heard the prophecies foretelling the death of his king. But he could never have imagined that the servant girl with the strange eyes, the girl he can’t put out of his mind, would one day soon uproot his kingdom—and the world.
