Tattooed bad boys and magic weave themselves through the pages of Rhenna Morgan's new Ancient Ink series. "Guardian's Bond" is on the darker side of paranormal romance. Yay, that's where I like to go. Plus it has powerful and strong men and women who play off each other well. No door mats here!
This novel excels at pulling you right in with a tattoo scene involving ancient magical symbols. Right from there I wanted to know more about how they worked and why Priest was chanting "Safe with the Keeper. Guarded from the dark." We soon find Priest Rahandras (Eerikki) and Kateri Falsen introduced. Kateri's parents have been murdered and her grandmother has deep secrets about their families pasts. They are not human like they thought, but they have magic. A magic that is being hunted by an evil magician... aka Priest's brother.
With the threat of Priest's brother looking for them this book has you always looking over your shoulder and wondering if he has found them. Along the way Priest and Kateri fall in love. Priest knows she's the one for him, but he has to convince Kateri that they have a future together.
I loved this book from start to finish. It kept my attention through the start, middle and end. I have a tendency to get board during the middle of books, but not with this one.
I'm looking forward to continuing Rhenna Morgan's Ancient Ink series.
Priest Rahandras has lived with the darkness trapped inside himself for years. Betrayed by his own brother and forced to watch his clan’s brutal annihilation, the only thing Priest wants more than to escape the curse that haunts him—as both man and beast—is to rebuild.
Until the mate he’s longed for walks into his life with an elder from his past. She’s everything he’s wished for, and the key to the clan’s very survival.
Kateri Falsen is a woman of logic and facts. While Priest’s cat can sense her arousal, telling her they’re fated won’t be enough. He’ll have to show her his love: with his words, with his actions and with his body.
Protecting Kateri from the evil trapped inside him is paramount. But when lost clan members are systematically murdered, he’ll have to choose between exposing his mate to his black magic, or risking her as the next victim.
