I became a fan of Louise Murchie when I read Dìonadair earlier this year, and I eagerly awaited the sequel. See my review for book 2 below.
Phew, that was intense! Reading this as a mother of similar age to Annie was challenging. I totally relate to the emotional content in this book, but the action is much darker and difficult to read, mainly because it rings true. Well written, fast-paced, an absorbing novel.
About the Book
He’s rich; the type she avoids. She’s an earnest warrior; the type he craves. When the two collide, will he fight for her heart?
Anthony McAully: she’s a warrior if I ever saw one. On a cold winter’s night, she helped me live, though she never asked for anything in return. Not even to meet me. I forced the issue, unable to leave it as a chance encounter. I met her, loved her, admired her fighting spirit and fell in love with her ability to give safety to others.
She’ll take on corrupt politicians, sex gangs and their support network, helping the weak and the powerless. For the Trodaiche she is, why won’t she fight for herself?
Annie Holmes: I deal in action, not emotions. Give me a puzzle to solve, a situation to deal with and I flourish. Those with money, who make people jump through hoops for entertainment? Walk on by. I don’t need them, their influence, their control in my life. I need someone who will be there for me, for my little girl, emotionally and physically. Someone so not like her father. Any chance of that has gone. Who is going to want to take on someone like me, a fighter, a survivor, a warrior; a woman who can bring trouble to the door and send it packing back to Hell?
