Her father is a strong healer. Maybe I missed something in my reading. And so that was how later that evening Aedammair found herself huddled on the floor of the cottage she shared with her husband, barely able to see out of two swollen eyes and unable to crawl to the bed because her body was so battered. A baobhan sith did not die easily; Drake knew this, so the silence puzzled him. Things become more complicated when the dark-hearted Luthias- a witch hunter obsessed with catching Deidra while practicing her art and burning her at the stake- picks up her trail soon after she leaves her parents' home. His own niece Deidra and his best friend were saved by a baobhan sith Hannah O'Shea, the same spirit who would not heal Drake's dying wife. I didn't mind the over all plot but I it was exciting to me- not like the caliber of writing this author is capable of.
It's fantasy, hey it could've happened. She seemed as puzzled by his strange behavior as he was. The hero is full of a sense of relief but that's quickly shattered by the memory that he has one more debt to pay. He could discern nothing by her blank expression. She had dark hair and pale skin, but that was all Aedammair could discern. My major beef is that the hero does something bonehead stupid in the first chapter. And move on to the next one, the one he had been using Luthias to avoid.
I picked this book up at a book sale not knowing the author. The other thing I found disappointing, was that, though technically this book has 'vampires' we really don't get to read much about them. There's no cause for him to behave as if he is saving her life but this doesn't stop her from going along with it. Were they really so stupid and cowardly? Despite that, the back was interesting enough to get me to open it up and the first chapter had me hooked. A fiery witch able to communicate with animals, Deidra MacKay longs to relinquish her powers -- they bring her nothing but misfortune and da From acclaimed author Jen Holling comes the captivating and sensual story of Deidra MacKay, a reluctant witch who would do anything to give up her powers -- until she meets a darkly handsome man who may give her reason to use them. A woman that was at one time Hell bent on revenge and the dishing out of her own justice, to a lonely creature of habit and self preservation.
This one sounded smaller, his voice thinner. He is willing to die to keep her safe, but soon learns his family is threatened by a psychopathic Luthias. Only because there were a few things pieces of the story left dangling. This is one of those books that the cover doesn't match what's described in the book. They embark on a journey filled with terrors, triumphs and awakening hearts.
Within seconds a tall, lean woman stood over him with a tankard of ale and one thick brow arched. So the witch and the cripple go off in search of the vampire with the witch hunter hot on their trail. It did indeed surprise me and oh what a great dastardly character we have. Let's start by telling you that I am not a fan of vampire books. Able to be in sunlight although it weakens her she is still able to function among the normal villagers. Both the hero and heroine were extremely irritating at times. You don't often get authors willing to make their characters appear weak- in form nor spirit- but Hollings goes there, managing to make them not only believable in an unbelievable setting, but likable.
He stared sightlessly at the ground. They travel far and wide to find safety and peace but instead find a danger so great that they are at a loss as to what to do. They must overcome their pasts and beat the bad guy. I was sad to see that holy water did not change them back into normal people. Drake MacKay is no stranger to the double-edged powers of blood witches.
It was an easy read but I could not warm up to the hero at all. Even though there were some moments in My Immortal Promise that I really liked, my overall feeling towards the characters was indifferent. She sat at the table across from him, the flickering candle in front of her, her long, slender arm lowering the flint matches to the tabletop. An embittered and crippled Scotsman, Stephen Ross lives as a recluse -- hiding from the world in a dreary castle. Also Hannah, who barely gets an introduction, makes a deal that I don't recall even seeing the specifics of in this book, only to lead seemingly nowhere. The heroine started out just a spoiled whiny girl.
Then he fights the bad guy over and over for the rest of the book. His own niece Deidra and his best friend were saved by a baobhan sith: Hannah O'Shea, the same spirit who would not heal Drake's dying wife. His oars trailed through the water. The clouds broke, and sunlight blinded him. A grown woman, past her prime, and good for little except hard work. He paced outside for a moment, his chest a knot, teeth clenched.
