Dante’s Circle Book 6
Carrie Ann Ryan
Humans aren’t as alone as they choose to believe. Every human possesses a trait of supernatural that lays dormant within their genetic make-up. Centuries of diluting and breeding have allowed humans to think they are alone and untouched by magic. But what happens when something changes?
Amara Young has always been on the outside looking in. She’s the one lightning-struck woman out of her group who has never felt as if she’s belonged. She lost a year of her life caring for her dying friend, but now it’s her turn to find out who she is. Only when the time comes, two men stand in her way—two men who claim her as theirs.
Tristan Archer, fae royalty and Conclave member, has waited over nine hundred years for his fate. And now he has two chances. While one knows his path, the other seems blind to what they could have. It will take more than a simple risk for Tristan to finally have what he desires…that is if Amara and Seth can overcome their own uncertainties.
While the other two in his life are fighting themselves and their futures, Seth Oceanus knows exactly what he wants. The younger brother of a Conclave member and relatively young in his realm, he knows he’ll have to prove himself so others see him for who he truly is.
As the triad succumbs to their cravings, they will have to fight more than their overwhelming feelings in order to survive.
Warning: Contains an innocent merman, a very talented fae, and a human woman who can outpace them both.
I felt Amara’s fear and apprehension as she was confronted by the two men that believed her to be their mate. She didn’t feel the pull of the bond like the others did. There was something wrong, not just different.
Tristan and Seth have their own issues with this. It took quite a bit of convincing from the other lightening struck and their mates for them to approach her. Amara put a lot of faith and trust in them when she agreed to go to Tristan’s home so the three of them could talk about what they were feeling. They all put everything on the line in the hopes of mating and the bond forming.
This is one of my favorite scenes taking place after they make the attempt to bond. Their intense feelings for each other making it seem so right.
Tears slid over Amara’s cheeks and her body shook as she wept. Tristan held them both, silent but stoic. Seth couldn’t speak, couldn’t formulate the words for what this meant. Instead, he ran his hands over Amara’s back and promised himself that he wouldn’t let her leave them— bond or no.
When he finally opened his mouth to speak, Amara froze. Her body twisted one way then the other as she lifted her torso off him, her mouth open in a silent scream.
Tristan cursed and quickly sat up, bringing her into his arms. “She’s changing,” he bit out. “Fuck, I didn’t know it would hurt her this bad.”
Seth scrambled up and went to Amara’s other side, holding her close, rocking her body back and forth.
“What does this mean?” he asked Tristan, who looked worried as hell.
“I don’t know,” he gasped. “I just don’t fucking know.”
Amara’s body would only change to her paranormal half once she’d made love to her mate or mates. That’s how the lightning-struck worked. Yet the bond hadn’t come to be between the three of them.
It didn’t make any sense.
Seth couldn’t think about all of that yet. His mate, his Amara was in pain, and he couldn’t fix it. Instead, he did his best to hold her close and prayed her agony would end soon.
What happened once she woke? Well… that was something they would have to figure out. Because something had happened, and it wasn’t like the others.
When it came to the three of them, nothing seemed to be.
An Immortal’s Song (Dante’s Circle Book 6) (Kindle Locations 690-702). Kindle Edition.
The things come to light as they find out what Amara has become are not only dangerous, they could be fatal. There are many threats to their happiness, but the greatest is the one that is preventing the mating bond.
A fast paced, action packed, intriguing read. The coming together even without the bond was extremely hot. I was holding my breath waiting for the outcome, especially once Amara started changing.
The sneak peek we got of Malik and Eliana has me waiting impatiently for their story as well. Thank goodness it’s only a month away.
