Tyra will stop at nothing to defeat the wizards, until Anton saves her life and she suddenly sees an opportunity she never could have imagined...

As the sparks ignite between them, together they could bring an end to the war that's decimating their people, but only if they can find a way to trust each other...



BOOK REVIEW by Michelle:

If you like Black Dagger Brotherhood, then you are going to like the Chronicles of Yavn series. It’s still early days with this series. Prince Of Power is released on 8th January 2013. I love big characters who love as big as they soldier on, fighting for good against worthy villains. The Wizards are worthy villains. They know how to take down vampires.

I am really enjoying the different personalities of these big, muscle packed guys. The layers we start to see peel back. Sometimes the lines become blurred between ones enemy and ones friend, even lover.

Times are a changing.

King Thad must make exceptions to the rule and the pitch forks are out and sharpened. He is also finding time in his day to attend to his Queens pregnant needs, measure the right amount of milk for Isabel to coincide with his sleep pattern, win, win, and manage the throne to a whole pile of Wizard War issues.

Military buzz cut Lee, he just takes my heart and runs with it. Not quite sure at this stage why I have singled Lee out. He just sounds yummy. He is tough and has a wounded heart.

Xander is my next fave. The lad is also hurting and trying to cope with being the soldier he needs to be and the painful loss to his heart. I absolutely LOVEEEE what Elisabeth is doing with his character and another character, building possibly?? something between two broken hearts, two lost souls.

Anton and Tyra are trying to work out all the kinks that keep piling up between them. Brings a whole new meaning to sleeping with the enemy.

Siddoh is buddying up to Alexia. I really like Siddoh, he is such a normal guy when he is in buddy mode, but a killer when in General / Soldier mode.

I love Alexia. Some seeds were dropped in this instalment , I scooped them up . Me thinks Alexia has got a story to tell us. The real estate she has left on her skin may get covered up with some more tatts before all is revealed. Love Lucas. He is a rather cheeky vamp.

I don’t care what the guys think, I like Agnessa. She just did what guys do. Sure she has upset my big Lee, broke his heart into tiny pieces. She has made mistakes. I like the way she holds her head high, but, I know it must be hurting. I also don’t agree with what she did, but when you know more about Agnessa...well, let’s say temptation is a bitch.

The Wizarding cauldron ( or is that just witches?) has been stirred , I am looking forward to book 3 to find out where/what/how, all this new information that has come to light will play out.

What will the big wig villain, head honcho Wizard do with what he has learnt?

Twists, smexi lads, heart felt moments, a virginity is lost...with a smile, and some rules no longer apply, and evil just found out they have more options.

    1. Miss B, I do hear you! I have been flitting back and forth a bit with some books. I think it is our brains telling us we need a bit of a breather sometimes. That is why I am jumping genres at moment to keep the brain fired up! I know I have a list of authors waiting but I am no good to them if my brain isn't in it's right head space...pun..heheee!!! get it head space!! So I jump do some crying...then do some UF and then do some PNR and it keeps the brain well oiled :) Now I KNOW you have your reasons for not wanting to do the NA genre and some of the more teary reads. But dive into some and let the brain work it's magic , you may get out of your slump;)
