A few months ago I was introduced to the Immortals of New Orleans series via the third book, Tristan’s Lyceum Wolves, and I promised myself I would back track and read the whole series. Lucky for me I found Kade’s Dark Embrace just as exciting as what I had previously read. I’d give a brief synopsis of the book but I find the blurb covers everything I would have said.
I am giving this book 4-stars for the simple reason I liked it. Paranormals are a weakness for me and any book that has both vampires and werewolves is always plus and when you factor in they act both human and animalistic, even better. All the characters from the MC, to secondary to evil villain were very well written and completely enjoyable. Author Kym Grosso did a wonderful job of conveying the familiar bonds. I could FEEL how connected everyone was to each other. Frankly I can’t wait to read all the secondaries stories. I’m digressing and need to get back to the fact that this story is about Kade and Sydney. Kade is soooo YUMMY! No doubt in my mind he is the one in charge. Sydney…that is one tough chick. Put them together and there is some hot friction. I really enjoyed their head butting and the ‘who’s in charge here’ attitude they both display. Seriously there wasn’t too much to not like about this book. Okay, well maybe just one thing; it’s the how fast Sydney recovered from attacks that I found someone unbelievable. You would think after getting cracked in the head she would have taken a bit longer to recover. As for the heat…I give this book 3-Flames. I found all the sex scenes (and there are quite a few) very tastefully done with enough detail to keep it hot without boarding on a XXX rating.
So now that I have had the chance of starting Immortals of New Orleans in it’s proper order I must say I think this is a must read. Between the characters, the heat and the plot, I am more than satisfied and have already started recommending this series. Kade’s Dark Embrace is a great start to what I hope is a long series. Definitely worth the read.
