Union Torsere #2


Ng Capture is a fun book so go get that book and then come backThe epic story continues in the second installment We learn a lot about the elves as our intrepid couple spends time in the elven city of Alel for Princess Cerylea and Prince Morkryn s wedding We have dangerous adventures And most importantly we have dragon timePrince Ryne and newly announced King s Consort Nykin are adjusting to married life Events push up Cerylea s wedding so the guys have barely had their own celebration before they re rushing to Alel Both are going to have to adapt to the changes their new status creates in their lives It s a huge change for Nykin who went from orphaned dragon rider to living in the castle with Ryne But Nykin really wants to make a life together with his KingThe elves are awesome We see of their friends from the first book and meet a whole bunch once they get to Alel I loved the descriptions of the city and how their magic works they re very connected to nature to the point the two are intertwined in numerous ways Also their magic is purple I know Right And they are all gorgeous of course but also very kind and welcomingFimor is his usual wise and bad ass dragon self He is called upon to save the day than once and he s very cool about the curiosity of the elves about dragons and their magic The bond between Nykin and Fimor must be stronger than ever if everyone is going to survive the tricks of their enemiesThis series is a lot of fun and very sweet I really appreciated that most of the drama was from the situation and not from stupid misunderstandings or miscommunications Everyone is an adult and they are dealing with treachery and war they don t waste their time getting hurt feelings or storming off in a huff The world building is very well done Hopefully I won t have to wait long for my next visit to Torsere and Alel where we get to ride FimorReviewed by NinaTo see of this review and others like it please visit us at Gay List Book Reviews at

help but get sucked into the littlest of fantasy stories so when I saw the seuel was coming up I was eager to continue Nykin and Ryne s story Union picks up a few weeks after Capture ends with Nykin almost fully recovered from his near fatal injury and newly appointed as King Ryne s Consort With their inability to get to Cerylea s betrothed through land they must now go by sea In an ocean that is normally calm King Ryne and company find an unexpected storm and dangerous waters that almost threatens their ability to make it to Elven land Thankfully they manage to arrive at Alel but the threat of King Seran is still there and closer than ever With the aid of an evil witch King Seran makes his move but while the attack is short Seran still gets away Now the uestion remains will Seran return for or has short Seran still gets away Now the uestion remains will Seran return for or has set his sights on somewhere elseWhile this story takes place only a short while after the previous book I found the characters evolved into their new situations uite nicely Where Nykin was brash stubborn and full speed ahead before now he s calmer and fitting for his role as Consort although he is still somewhat stubborn Ryne is still the very serious King but he s also happier and not so dreary in such a heavy situation Nykin has made Ryne realize that He Can Even Out The can even out the of war with the good of Nykin if that makes any sense It s extremely sweet and I ust loved loved loved how close they ve gotten in such a short time And Ryne s possessiveness and ealousy towards Nykin Totally hotI LOVED this story but I won t deny that I had one big issue There was ust too much sex for my liking I adored the fact that Ryne has come to accept his feelings for Nykin and I love that he has such raw desire for him not to mention the fact that he ll take every advantage to steal a few kisses from Nykin audience or no but there was ust too much smut IMO Granted that s a personal preference so I highly doubt many others will have that problem There were a few other niggles such as a few uestions I had like how Seran got to Alel went I thought the only bridge to Elven land was destroyed but that was itAll in all a fabulous book and a great seuel Tensions are rising and the love is growing stronger In this middle instalment of the Torsere trilogy Annabelle really amps up the tensions as the visit to the Elven kingdom draws closeFor our two heroes they re much settled and the exploration of their growing feelings is twisted into the narrative alongside the ceremony making Nykin officially Ryne s consort I absolutely loved everything about the Elves the way the city was revealed is so vivid the sights and sounds are tangible There s danger of course this time in the form of a witch testing the magical barrier and almost killing one of the elves And while everyone sits around waiting for the marriage to be finalised evil lurks bringing an end to the happy visitI think the pacing was ust right in this I like it when a book pushes away from the formula of a danger point at the 70% mark here tensions built right to the very endNow the race is on to get back to Torsere and find out The Cake House just what the bad guy has up his sleeve this tim. Proaches the dragons sense a malevolent presence To protect the young couple’s fragile bond Nykin and his dragon Fimor take to the skies setting up a patrol along the border of the magical city But as the evil grows potent the enchanted boundary grows weaker Ryne and Nykin must combine their strength to protect their people from Seran’s extreme plot for revenge. Whose knowledge even the elves have forgotten The marriage of Cerylae not only unifies the two kingdoms and strengthens its borders it also reveals the strength the dragons hold over the Elves and their magic This book hints of things to come forgotten knowledge coming to the fore With the attack on the Elven borders it is soon clear that the elves will also benefit from the union So the balance tips now in favor of Ryne and NykinI find myself loving this story than Capture simply because of the Elves and dragons were revealed here and a lot of holes from the first book were finally laid to rest in this one It is also clearer with this read that the role of Nykin and Fimor will become thanust the ConsortDragon rider and dragon army strength The knowledge the dragons have kept alive within their minds for millenia are a treasure that will be revealed in the succeeding books which The Essential Tantra: A Modern Guide to Sacred Sexuality just makes me now impatient for what comes next Union is the second book in the Torsere series and we return to Nykin and Ryne as they prepare for Cerylea s marriage to Morkryn prince of the Elves This is a series with an overall story arc so I would absolutely recommend you read them in order so it all makes senseThe action this time takes place in Alel with the Elves and we get to see what a magical place they live in We also reunite with Faelon and Avelor and find out about the bond between Fimor Faelon and Nykin It s notust love in the air as Seran is still out for blood this time recruiting a dark witch to make things complicatedI loved returning to this world I still adore Nykin and Ryne and love how they have their responsibilities before each other but it doesn t stop them from enjoying themselves whenever possible They are both learning to live with each other and what compromises need to be made Ryne is trying to keep a lid on his ealousy and possessiveness but it s not always easy Nykin is making of an effort to see things from Ryne s perspective and seeing how things aren t as easy as he thought if you are Consort or King of the RealmThis series continues to delight and I really can t wait for the final in this amazing trilogy A copy of this book was provided to me with no reuirements for a review I voluntarily read this book and the comments here are my honest opinion MerissaArchaeolibrarian I Dig Good Books OUT NOW US UK I really enjoy fantasy books when the world building is well done and this definitley fits that description I read both books in the series last weekend and now am hoping like heck that it doesn t take too long for the third book to come outI got a very strong Lord of the Rings vibe in this book because the Elves were a much bigger part of this than in Capture but I uite enjoyed that aspect There s nothing wrong with images *of sexy Elves with long hair and pointy ears at all IMHO The descriptions of this world the dragons *sexy Elves with long hair and pointy ears at all IMHO The descriptions of this world the dragons magic were so vivid that I had a great visual experience while reading it I was rather depressed that I couldn t ump right into book 3 and will definitely be keeping an eye out for it As I mentioned when I reviewed CAPTURE some of the parts I didn t like about the first instalment of this trilogy were caused by having to introduce so many characters and a new world to the reader This is often the case with the first book of a trilogy or indeed a series though less so The negative aspects for me were resolved in UNION and I really enjoyed #IT THE PLOT MOVES ON FROM BOOK 1 TO #The plot moves on from Book 1 to wedding between Morkryn the elven Prince and Cerylea Torsere s Princess and Ryne s beloved sister The Union of the title also refers to Nykin and Ryne as they can now be The Outlandish Adventures of Liberty Aimes joined as Prince and Consort and consummate the relationship they started in Book 1 Nykin and Ryne s relationship is definitely fleshed out in this instalment and they have some pretty hot scenes which were missing from CAPTURE I apologise to Annabelle Jacobs for highlighting this because the author really did know best and the sex scenes wereust right for this story whereas they would have been gratuitous in the lastThe descriptions of the Elven world and city Alel are wonderful and one of the aspects I adore about fantasy is the thought process involved in creating new worlds rituals and vistas The elves live in homes built in the Ghaleth D ahl or Giant Velvet Oaks which are oined together by walkways in the tree tops The wedding itself between Cerylea and Morkryn is short and lovely but it is the gorgeous images conjured by the Neflahstra Ahguil Night Flowering WATER STAR FLOWERS AND ITS EFFECTS Star flowers and its effects will stay with meThe troubles with the evil Seren are still with our heroes and this time he recruits dark witches to help him in his uest to conuer Ryne s Torsere Several times in this story Annabelle Jacobs intelligent and beautiful dragons save the day and we may lose another dragon rider to love My favourite dragon Fimor is in fine fettle and continues to be a great character in this trilogy I must also mention that again Paul Richmond does a wonderful fantasy coverI have to end this review saying that I cannot wait for the release of ALLIANCE the final book in this trilogy which is currently expected for a November release You really have to read the first book in the series Capture before you start on this story There is too much background and world buildi. Ittle opportunity to celebrate their union but make the most of their time together before leaving for Alel Since the ambush at Neest River destroyed the main bridge traveling by ship is the only option An unusual storm threatens their crossing making Ryne wonder if some new magic is rising against them As the wedding between Cerylea and the Elven prince Morkryn ap. I am really enjoying this series I knew at the end of the last book that something was going to happen in this one Someone had disappeared in the battle and I knew that they were going to pop back up at some point And I was right And it s made for a great story I have a little contention for one particular elf who is a little than naughty at times but they can be mischievous at times Doesn t excuse the behavior but I definitely understand Ryne s uneaseNykin has been dreading getting better to a point He can t wait to get back on Fimor and be with him and it s affecting Fimor as well And he loves what little time he gets with Ryne but he knows once he s officially ok Cerylea Ryne s sister and Princess is going to be pushing the Consort ceremony And he s very nervous about it He s not used to being in the limelight And he knows his whole world is about to change But he can t put it off any longer or he s afraid Ryne will think he doesn t want him Plus once their ceremony is done the uicker Cerylea can get to Alel the elves home and get married But they re also all nervous because Seran disappeared during the battle in book 1 and they know he s going to come back Just a matter of when And what he plans to do is anyone s guess But once they get to Alel and finally settled have the wedding and etc all bets are off Seran indeed shows up and it s up to Nykin and Fimor to with the help of the elves to fix what he s trying to do And hopefully in time Because Seran has another plan up his sleeve and it s ust given everyone a shock I really am loving how everyone is working together It was a good choice for Cerylea to marry into the elves because the forces they are going to have once the bond sets in will be unstoppable But Seran knows than he s let on But even with the hurt he s put on some of the elves with the old magic he has floating around trying to hurt and stir things up Seran has forgotten one thing And I can t wait to see how it turns out in book 3 Nykin and Fimor have shown uickly how well they work together and how strong their bond is They ve shown how much trust they have in each other and because of it they are going to become unstoppable I can very much see that happening And with Ryne already having a somewhat bond with the dragons Fimor knows well what Ryne needs as well and things are going to be better I think The bonds all around them are forming strong In their own ways and it s going to make Torsere unbeatable I believe I may be wrong but I ve loved watching how this has all turned out and how they ve all ust kept getting up and fighting And because of Fimor even has turned out better I love him so much He s one heck of a dragon Sass smart as a whip with a wicked sense of humor If you haven t read this series you need to It s really an amazing series so far and I can t wait to see where it goes nexthttpslovebytesreviewscom A Joyfully Jay review 4 starsIf you will recall I absolutely *FAWNED OVER THE FIRST BOOK IN THIS SERIES CAPTURE *over the first book in this series Capture am a fantasy addict I crave it The escape into new worlds especially worlds with dragons is something that my psyche needs So this series totally does it for me on so many levels And Union is a wonderful next step in this exciting imaginative and fun world I loved this story Compared to the first it s less heart pounding and intense I loved that about the First Book But I Also Like That book but I also like that book is much sweeter We get to see lots of Ryne and Nykin together falling in love and becoming a bit of a power couple Don t get me wrong there is still plenty action and adventure making up this story But whereas Union isn t as intense it is emotionally captivatingRead Crissy s review in its entirety here Original Blog Post has finally recovered from his ordeal under the hands of Seran and with Cerylea has finally recovered from his ordeal under the hands of Seran and with Cerylea impending union to the Prince Morkryn there is a need to establish his position by Ryne s side He has to be officially recognized as the King s Consort before they travel to the Elven Kingdon All of these come to pass without much

magic they have to collectively fight against Nykin and Fimor find themselves patrolling the Elven skies and were the first to detect the gradual breakdown of the magical borders Together Rykin and Nykin will face Seran s wrath and black magicand Torsere has ust turned from a simple fantasy adventure into that of high fantasyUnion begins where Capture left off so it is very important to mention

this worldRyne s and Nykin s relationship has gotten stronger and Ryne is showing fully his possessiveness for his consort The change in his character has endeared him to his people as they clearly see his happiness The two men are solid partners in this book with their love for each other The story unfolds in a calm manner even in the midst of drama and action that comes out of nowhere Jesting
