Interesting start of new series, though rather too scattered about to my taste. Trying to see it from elf's perspective might help though. XPI found it easier to accept insta-love/lust trope when it set in paranormal genre, I guess. But from being unaware of their elven blood to accept it then go wrecked otherworldly realm with their newfound power were... rushed.

Good Book Betwixt and Between THREE HEARTS--Ian has always been curious of the paranormal. He is a writer for a tabloid that specializes in the magical world. A dark elf, Ezekiel recognizes what Ian truly is and casts a hex to ensnare him. But Ian is able to thwart him. Surprising the dark elf. The two are drawn to each other. Ian begins to search for answers about his shady past, he was an orphan at the age of nine, raised by his deceased mother's best friend who is also a witch.Ian is surrounded by a peanut gallery of humans who are drawn to his "light". I must say the world and elven mythos created was interesting. The beginning half of this novella was intriguing, the war between the elves and banishment and the mystery of Ian's parentage.It was riding the 3.5 Hearts rating because while the ideas were solid, sometimes the execution wasn't as up to snuff.The story nosedived around 70%. It made an effort to be exciting but it lost momentum. The good guy enters the forbidden world to save his man. And once he does, they end up switching places repeating the same plot twist on the evil tree instead of confronting the evil queen.And then magic trampoline/acrobatic sex happens in time of peril. It read more like filling a sex quota or word count quota instead of adding to the action of light vs. dark finally coming together.And the story ends with a HEA for the pair but the villain aka the queen is still around? Doesn't matter because there was time for more sex. *sighs *The plot fell off. This isn't the best far romance I've read but it could have been better: lose the repetitive tree scene, actually have the protagonists face the antagonist, the antagonist was wishy-washy. That queen caused the rift between elven factions? She should have had a tenth of that gumption to actually make a difference. She ruled more from her throne instead of doing anything for herself. It was boring to read. She tried to talk the talk but couldn't walk the walk.And the secondary characters. Oh dear. They tried so hard and I wasn't a fan of the peanut gallery. They too much face time for my preference, they didn't add much to the story. Cleona tried to protect Ian by letting him roam about looking for paranormal? :/If the next book in this series continues with the same couple, I'm not interested in continuing. They could only be stretched so far.A copy provided for an honest review.

  • Uncaged Book Reviews This is touted as a Gay Romance, but it s really much than that It s a very dark fantasy, with a dark Queen who enslaves the dark elves, and destroys the light elves and steals their light souls and she s hell bent on power Ian is a reporter for a small newspaper that reports on magical beings, and he becomes hexed by Zeke, who is a dark elf, or svarta, and is under the control of the Queen Ian s friends help him to break the hex, and meets with Zeke again, after finding ou [...]


  • I quite enjoyed this sparkling tale of enchantment, which I happily placed under Escapism in my Kindle library The book s title is quite apropos for its story, which swept me into a shadowy netherworld of dream and nightmare to witness a heroic and mind bending battle for love and deliverance Ian Evers, a seemingly human reporter with a personal quest to prove that magic and magical creatures exist, finds himself love spelled by the dazzling dark elf, Ezekiel Stormshadow On a quest of his own, E [...]

  • Original review on Molly LollyFour stars This was such a fun story I got sucked in to the world and lore created and couldn t stop reading The way Ian came into his powers was wonderful to watch Ezekiel and how he had to fight his base nature had me on the edge of my seat at times, wondering which he was going to choose Together the two of them are fabulous They are explosive together, but it takes them a while to realize how they fit There are some things that feel like they re left unanswered [...]


  • It was fine Urban fantasy with elves vaguely Celtic Scandinavian ones What really kind of bugged me was that view spoiler so it s supposed to be some kind of big deal that the MC gets together with the dark elf, because he s half a light elf, right And his mother is descended from a rebel dark elf, so he s not overwhelmed by the dark or something So they bring balance to the force, save the dark elves, whatever dualism blah blah But if his mom is descended from the dark elves, why wasn t it worl [...]
