Damn this is one intense series Vampires witches good vs evil So good Ooooooh soooo funI LOVED all the vampirewizard action of the warBut this still got those fem bitsand many side stories of which I don't care for Since this seem the direction of the books I can see that I'm going to be a skimming ueen before the series comes to an endlollucky for me I love the magic this book offer'sFor me the many couple are still a bit much but I would recommend this book If you like MM MF FF many love stories in one book because this book has some awesome magic this might just be for you I liked it enought to continue on with the series and simply skim what I don't care to read This was a cute and magical I love reading about Orlando and Alain as well as Thierry and Sebastien But Jean and Raymond are my all time FavsWhy one star short? I found it to be a little long 400 plus pages just dang drawn out for mebut clearly magical And here i thought first book had many POVsIts double of them here Unbelieveable All it does is confuse the reader and I kept going back to understand whos narrating nowIt had potential If author had just dedicated one book for ONE couple it could have been good Pity but i couldnt finish REVIEWED FOR PRISM BOOK ALLIANCE35 StarsThis book didn’t grab me uite as much as the first in the series it seemed a little long for the progress that was made within the alliance It was also difficult sometimes to work out whose POV you were reading For me personally there were just too many characters to keep track of and I found myself getting a little lost with who was doing what and whereHaving said that I am still enjoying the series and looking forward to the rest of the booksThe dark wizards are still intent on causing mayhem and bringing war but with the good wizards and the vampires forming an allegiance through blood the tide is slowly turning in their favour The wizards and vampires that become pairs the knowledge comes to light about how the bond works and the benefits even if it is mostly by trial and error The biggest bonus so far is still the ability for the vampires to go out in sunlight thus increasing the troops day and nightOrlando and Alain are very different from the rest having made an old vampire bond to stay together for eternity In Orlando’s case this was probably a bit rash as he still lives with the demons associated to his abuse and torture from a century ago Their relationship jumps around a lot from being perfect to being strained and seemed uite repetitive at timesThe other two main pairs are Sebastian and Thierry who are both bullish and getting over past losses and Jean and Raymond who had a very bad start but who are gradually better able to work together and are growing closer Due to the large number of pairings the book follows there are also MF and FF vampires and wizards includedAs this book concludes the wizards are dealing with a glitch in the elemental magic that causes what we would consider natural disasters and the vampires are about to invite members to join the alliance It will be interesting to see what happens to Jean the vampire leader in book 3 when he finds a part of his life has been infiltrated and what that will mean for him and Raymond A lot of mf and ff scenes I didn't much appreciate and browsed through The mm scenes are great though^^ Gah She left me hanging How dare she The alliance and partnerships between the wizards and the vampires gets increasingly complex and complicated in this book and the I read the I want to know These books are definitely not light reads and this book at over 400 pages felt just as long as it was as Yet I definitely want to read the rest of this story It’s a very interesting world and story that Ariel has created It took awhile to get into the style of this book There is a lot of head hopping and names to remember There are mm mf and ff pairings But once I accepted the ensemble cast I really enjoyed the plot This book is about building relationships Personal ones and professional onesIn book one it was discovered that some vampires and wizards could form bonds through feeding that allow the vampires to go out in the sun By bringing the paired vampires in to the ranks of the Milice the fighting force is increased significantly and the vampires add some serious man power They also seem to be fairly impervious to the dark wizard spells But it turns out the bonds are not just a business arrangement for a lack of a better term They take on a very personal aspect as wellThis second book in the series follows the wizardvampire pairs as they all sort through some surprises The relationships very uickly become sexual for nearly all of them As I did the first time I read this book I enjoyed the different configurations we have malemale pairs femalefemale pairs and we have malefemale pairs It’s a nice sexual smorgasbord But what is really interesting is the different dynamics of the pairs Jude and Adele are a very bad fit and hate each other Jude having a very antiuated idea about what a woman should be doing Sebastien and Thierry both have issues with lost loves and seem like a good pair David has a problem with Angeliue’s business dealings but seem to be able to work their shit out Caroline and Mireille are very sweet together Jean and Raymond Yum They are such a great pair So lots of interesting pairs trying to figure out a way to get along Some have turned sexual by then end of the book some have yet to get there but you know they willThen we have Orlando and Alain Sigh They are such a freaking mess I love them dearly but by the end of the book I was ready for a break Orlando has some serious trust issues that he needs to get the hell over and fast On and on it goes “Touch me” then a few minutes later “No Don’t touch me” Poor Alain I would have run screaming from the room Orlando can’t seem to decide if he wants to be passive or aggressive or in some ways I guess he’s passiveaggressive Pushing and pulling Alain along They have jumped in to a relationship way too fast neither having a clue what to expect I hate to say it but it was a mistake for them Good for added drama to the plot but not the best decision for the characters if that makes any sense But Orlando is trying I can see thatSo my issue with this book is that it doesn’t move the story forward as much as the length of the book would indicate It’s a biiiig book 420 pages Although I liked the building of the relationships between the pairs it was a bit drawn out Not much happened in the overall war a battle here and there a revelation about the magical imbalance the introduction of a bad vampire a bit of torture a storm a few magical details but really it’s a lot of book for not a lot of plot Still enjoyable as part of the overall series but no big drama Lots of small drama personal drama between various pairs but no plot drama Very much about character building and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that I just wish it had been a little shorterBut Ariel gives us some amazing characters futher develops this world and shows her knowledge and love of Paris Plus Orlando and Alain Drove me nuts but I LOVE THEMA copy of this book was provided in exchange for an honest review Please visit wwwlovebytesreviewscom to see this and many reviews author interviews guestposts and giveaways In this the second book we start to see where all those new relationships forged in book one are headed There are so many it is sometimes hard to keep track And they come in all flavors mm mf ffOrlando and Alain are growing closer day to day Orlando is still a bit stand offish so scarred that it is hard for him to let Alain in Alain is becoming impatient and hurt by this seeming “rejection” and it briefly separates them On the one hand I too was feeling that Orlando was being ridiculous but as he points out he was injured and has been holding on to these feelings for hundreds of years and the TEN days that he and Alain have been together no matter the magic can’t undo it that uicklyJude the traditionalist is matched with Adele the strong woman It’s a clash of the centuries with him acting like a caveman and Adele showing him what a modern woman can doThierry and Sebastian Sebastian coveting Thierry and Thierry feeling guilty over wanting someone so recently after his wife has died and a man to bootCaroline and Mirielle are learning how to be a couple with Caroline’s confidence blossoming in Mirielle’s careDavid the conservative is matched with Angeliue the madam Raymond and Jean two stubborn mules matched head to headThe story also moves forward a little in the development of the “war” We learn that there is magic to be gained from these pairings and that when vampires feed while having sex that magic is restored faster than just from feedingMostly however this very very very very long book was about character development It can be a bit trying and confusing I read in one review “If there is a pairing you are uncomfortable with just skim their part” I believe that’s mostly true Very little would be lost if you ignored one couple but the sex between couples is mostly Alain and Orlando This is still mostly their storySo if you have a lot of patience and time I recommend continuing on with this well written series and give book two a 4 of 5 hearts
