Review by Johanne Pearl Couturier
Science fiction at it’s best! New worlds, spaceship travels, mad alien scientists… Evangeline Anderson puts her characters to the test and makes them live life threatening situations that kept me at the edge of my seat.
This time, Lauren, the twin sisters’ cousin, finds herself having the hots for her captor’s son, none other than the Scourge throne heir himself. Used to a life of hurting, torture and psychological abuse, Xairn knows nothing about friendship… so imagine love! But his body is waking up in a way that is frightening him because he knows pain needs to be a part of it all. How much pain can she endure for the love of him?
Evangeline Anderson brings us in a story where both antagonists must learn the limits of their own pleasure through pain and domination. She touches that delicate subject in a very exciting way, while also giving us a close-up at the couple’s line of thought. I enjoy the way she goes from one character to the next, giving us access to what they are thinking and where they are coming from.Right from the first book, we never see the story from only one angle, but from multiple angles. Another thing I love from her writing is how she gives the readers cues on what is coming… while leaving the characters in the dark. And, while we know what will happen, she surprises us nonetheless by giving it a twist of her own.
Don’t be turned off by the number of stars I gave this one compared to the first three books of the series… I was just a bit less touched by the main characters in this one. Just personal taste really.
(3 ½ stars)
