Book Two in the Finding Home series.
Keddrick has denied claiming his mate for four years, separating them by worlds just to keep the man he loves safe…from him. Can he resist temptation when his love lands on his doorstep in need of help?
Eli has lusted after Keddrick from the moment the vampire stepped through the portal and into Earth. He had desperately wanted to go with Keddrick when the man returned to Pavarus, but it wasn’t allowed—not to mention Eli was under the impression that Keddrick was straight. Four years later his wish has come true, but not in the way he wanted. Barely escaping death by the hands of Wayland, head of the human council on Earth, Eli flees to Pavarus in search of help. The line of events that get him there release a hidden secret deep inside of him he never knew existed, and would soon change his life forever.
Keddrick’s restraint towards Eli is being seriously tested, and every day Eli stays with him at the coven, the harder it gets. He wants to keep his distance, but at the same time he wants to do everything he can to please Eli. Yet as time goes on, he feels his resolve slowly crumble, his love for the man too strong to ignore. When Keddrick finds out about Wayland’s threat on his and Eli’s life, he is determined to stop the madman anyway he can, even if that means going against Eli’s pleas for him not to.
Through blood and tears, years of love and moments of betrayal, can these two men find their way through the hardships and into a life of happiness in each other’s arms?
Morvea is the second book in the Finding Home series and the sequel is just as good as the first book, Pavarus. Between the fast-paced action and strong romantic undertones, Morvea is definitely not a book to be missed!
The blurb does an excellent job at describing the story, so I won’t rehash it. Instead, I thought I’d discuss why I really loved this book and why I recommend it.
The story itself flows smoothly and continues to do so throughout the novel. I loved the world building Ms. Wright creates and found myself quickly drawn into the characters’ plights. There is plenty of action, suspense and surprise elements that kept this reader guessing as well as becoming enthralled with the story itself and I found myself reading the entire book without stopping from start to finish.
Both Eli and Keddrick are well-written, likeable and sympathetic characters. It was easy to see why these two men worked so well together. Even though they have some communication issues (who doesn’t?) the bond between them is a very strong one. I also liked how not only did they love each other, they liked each other too. There is a kinship between them that really resonated off of the written page and into my imagination that I really appreciated as a reader. I admit, there were times I wanted to shake some sense into Keddrick for dying the mating bond between them, but I also understood his fears and why he delayed it for so long.
I also loved the secondary characters in this book. The first couple in the series, Wesley and Remus, plays a big part in this book and I enjoyed seeing where their relationship has progressed. Also, there is another secondary couple, Zane and Larken, that I HOPE will have their book next. (Hopefully, Zane will wake up and realize his feelings for Larken…come on Zane…get with the program already!) All in all between the well-thought out storyline and unique and interesting characters, this comes across as a fresh read for me. It’s not your typical paranormal story (series) because it has a lot of depth and creativity of the story itself that really kept this reader anxious to see what was going to happen next!
Although, you could probably read this book as a stand-alone, I do NOT recommend doing this. To fully understand the dynamics between the characters as well as the backstory of Pavarus and the plight these characters go through, it is best to read the books in series order.
I hope Ms. Wright takes me out of my misery soon and hurries up with the sequel to this book. It’s definitely not a series to be missed and die hard paranormal/vampire fans will surely love this book as much as I did.
