Paranormal Romance Review: Lord's Fall by Thea Harrison

Lord's Fall by Thea Harrison (Elder Races #5)

borrowed from the library

Synopsis from Goodreads
In the latest Novel of the Elder Races, two mates find themselves on different paths, torn between their duty to the Wyr and the passion that binds them . . .

Before she met Dragos, half-human half-wyr Pia Giovanni was alone and on the run. Now, she's mated, pregnant and heading south to repair the Wyr's frayed relationship with the Elves. Being separated from Dragos is painful, but for the good of the Wyr demesne they need to figure out how to be partners, in more places than just the bedroom.

In New York to preside over the Sentinel Games, Dragos is worried about his mate, but knows that finding two replacement sentinels is essential to show the rest of the Elder Races just how strong and brutal the Wyr demesne can be. But as the games heat up, Pia's negotiations with the Elves take a turn for the dangerous, straining her bond with Dragos and threatening everything they hold dear . . .

I shouldn't even mention that Dragos and Pia managed to stay my favourite couple through the whole 5 books of this series. There is just so much chemistry between them, humour and passion. Somehow I can't help but draw parallels between them and Kate Daniels with Curran - my all time favourite couple EVER.

Their pairing works, even if it's the most problematic among all the characters in the series. What with Pia keeping her heritage secret and being considered Dragos's weakness; her unusual uneasy pregnancy and her quiet ways. Wyr-folk can't figure her out, and this is the root of the problem.

This time Pia has to go on a separate journey from Dragos, who organized his Sentinel Games and has to stay and attend them while his mate tries to mend damaged relationships with Elves.

However Dragos' uneasy feeling about letting his pregnant wife go to an enemy's territory alone turns prophetic when Pia and her contingent of bodyguards get dragged into an ancient God's attempt to conquer elves demesne.

 Among the treachery of dark magic, civil war and strong compulsions, Pia has to work fast on figuring out how to stay alive just until Dragos joins her for one epic final battle.

I love that the world created by Thea Harrison is multi-layered and colourful, I love that she writes a strong blend of paranormal romance and urban fantasy, and I won't hesitate to recommend her books to fans of Jeaniene Frost and Nalini Singh - two authors who write in the same mixed genre.

Теа Харрисон - совсем неплохой автор, пишущая в смешанном стиле городского фэнтези и паранормального романа наравне с такими именами как Жанин Фрост и Налини Сингх.

Её построение мира красочно и многогранно, и пара главных героев - Драгос и Пиа, описанных в этой книге, так и остаются моими любимчиками. Как пара они просто идеальны - здесь и постоянные искорки между ними, и юмор и страстная любовь. Чем-то они мне даже напоминают Кейт Дэниэлс и Куррана.

В пятой книге серии Пиа отправляется в измерение светлых эльфов, чтобы наладить натянутые дипломатические отношения с ними и империей Драгоса, пока сам Драгос вынужден остаться дома и наблюдать за Играми Сентинелей, сходя с ума от беспокойства из-за своей беременной жены, скачущей по враждебной территории.

Когда его страхи оправдываются и Пиа оказывается втянута в древний эльфийский конфликт, Драгос мчится из-за всех сил, чтобы успеть ей помочь и они оба оказываются в гуще грандиозного сражения с древним воплощением бога...

Читается легко, быстро и с огромным удовольствием. Советую фанатам Налини Сингх, Жанин Фрост и Илоны Эндрюс (серии На Грани).

Wow, your book has a gorgeous cover! I haven't seen that one yet. I did love this book, I think Pia has grown a lot, and I loved the bits with her Peanut.

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
