review Lord of the Abyss

Once upon a timethe Blood Sorcerer vanuished the kingdom of Elden To save their children the ueen scattered them to safety and the king filled them with vengeance Only a magical timepiece connects the four royal hei. There is a lineage of blood that ties mother to child a lineage that can never be broken And it is this lineage the ueen used to cast her children away from Elden to safety so they could one day return and reclaim their stolen birthrightIt was a mother s last loving gift yet the Blood Sorcerer boasts even now that ueen Alvina failed that he twisted her magic at the end so that instead of finding safe harbor the heirs of Elden fell into death There is no one left alive to contradict him From the Royal Chronicles of Elden on the third day of the Reign of the Blood Sorcerer Lord of the Abyss is the fourth and final book in the Royal House of Shadows series and one of the sweetest sexiest most romantic books I ve read in a very long time It doesn t often happen that I find myself in love with both the hero and the heroine but Micah and Liliana are amazing people who I couldn t help but adore Both tortured by pasts very different from one another are yet so very much alike in their single mindedness and honor and they will do the right thing regardless of the cost to themselves They are uite simply put the stuff legends are made ofThe world that Nalini Singh created in this installment of the series was awesome The creatures the beings Mouse Jissa and Bard I loved them all even the ghosts who roam the halls of the Black Castle And speaking of the Black Castle the lore surrounding it and the Abyss is magically fairytaleesue and so vivid In my mind s eye I could see every room every plant every food every everything and I couldn t turn the pages fast enough to see what would happen next I was totally captivated by the entire tale and as I read I felt somehow honored to be privy to their thoughts and feelingsNow about the story In the previous books Lord of the Vampires Lord of Rage and Lord of the Wolfyn we learn that when their kingdom was attacked by the Blood Sorcerer Aelfric and Alvina the King and ueen of Elden fought for all they held dear willing to give up their lives if needed to protect their children their kingdom and all who dwelt there When they realized that they were going to die their final act was one of love one last effort to protect their children by weaving a powerful spell which sent the four royal heirs Nicolai Breena Dayn and Micah into different realms in hopes that one day they d find their way home and defeat the Blood Sorcerer Each book tells the story of one of the siblings and their journey back to Elden not knowing exactly what they d find when they got thereThe way the story develops throughout the first three books I expected a battle of epic proportions in Lord of the Abyss but when the battle actually takes place it really wasn t much of a battle at all And much to my disappointment there was little interaction between these siblings who are seeing each other for the first time in twenty years Twenty years apart and yet there was no celebration Or at least not one we were invited to So while I loved the story overall truly loved it I was very disappointed that we didn t see some kind of grand reunion or even a so so reunion but there was really nothing much at all and that s my only complaint about the book Had it not ended so abruptly this would have easily been a 5 star read but even with the ending as it is I m still rating this 5 stars and adding Micah and Liliana to my Top Couples Of All Time shelfThe bottom line I still breathe a sigh of contentment when I think of Micah and Liliana and how very happy their story made me Dark yet hopeful tragic yet joyous Lord of the Abyss is one of my very favorite stories and I know without a doubt I ll be reading it time and time again My sincerest thanks to netgalleycom and Harleuin books for providing me with a copy of this wonderful ARC ebook

Now this was the best of the series and the reason I picked it Nalini Singh does such a fantastic job of world building and making it easy for a reader to visualize everything that s happening as you read or listen to her books I loved the enemies to lovers trope the not so pretty characters and I really enjoyed the battle For a shorter read this really had a lot to it I am glad I read all the books in the series to get to know all the couples and the world they lived in

I have no idea why I waited so long to read this book After all I love Ms Singh she s my favorite author and I have a surprisingly large number of her books on my favorites shelf True I didn t like the first 2 books in the series much but still Ms Singh I m terribly sorry for doubting you I promise it won t happen again Anyway back to the book I really really love itMicah is a great hero all grumpy and arrogantpowerful as hell but he s just a marshmallow inside For all him being the Lord of the Black Castle AKA The Boogeyman of all magical creatures he s not evil In fact he s the polar opposite of evil He can t even understand it completely True he has his rages but even then he behaves like an animal no true menace in his actionsHis life changes dramatically when Liliana appearsShe makes him remember things better left forgotten But at the same time she brings joy to himLiliana has an important mission to carry out make sure that Micah remembers his past so that he could save Elden from a dreadful fate her father So she comes to Black Castle hoping to save the worldHer childhood was a nightmare she was tortured repeatedly by her father simply for being of his blood As a result she s willing to do whatever it takes to stop him And then she meets MicahHe s not what she expected not at all He sees beneath the surface of an ugly woman to her heart he sees a beautiful womanI love how they are together the teasing the conversations no hiding behind walls or from their feelings They see each other with no rose tinted glassesCastle of EldenThe only tiny thing that might have bothered me if everything else wasn t so perfect is the ending The whole big battle thing was a bit anticlimactic for me But since I never really cared about the other royals the prophecy and all that stuff it was truly minor view spoilerAnd why did she have to become pretty in the end it wasn t necessary But Micah reaction is perfect Arms wrapped around him she kissed him halting the flow of his words He decided he would allow the kiss but since he couldn t make her naked here he had to stop it Why did you change your face Lily Liliana lifted her hands to her face at that uizzical uestion terrified her father had cast a final vengeful spell Is it very bad she whispered to the man who held her in arms of steel I suppose I ll get used to it he muttered then kissed her again using his tongue and sueezing her bottom as if his brothers and sister and other people weren t standing right thereAn instant later she decided she didn t care hide spoiler
