Now, this is what I wanted from Ravage. Lacey Carter Andersen shines with her newest Royal Fae Academy novel, Ruin!
Ruin advances Rayne’s murder mystery, explores further the super-secret-search, and expands upon the evergrowing threat. Now Esmeray and ALL her men are in danger. It’s too late to go back, and stopping is out of the question.
There is being a badass and just being a bad character, and in Ravage, Esmeray is often a poorly written character who has crossed that fine line.
Revere introduces us to Esmeray and her mates: Bron Drake, Lucian Silver, and Dwade Luther…
–Dwade is still a nonsense name in my book and far from sexy. Should we Dwade into the swamp? Dwading in lakes is far better. See, that is what comes to mind when I hear Dwade. /tangent–
…And we learn about the sexy, no-no-relationship situation the three men are keeping from Rayne and Esmeray; no one knows that Esmeray is their mate. But now Rayne has been murdered, and Esmeray is at the Royal Fae Academy, and keeping the sexy Dark Fae from doing what comes naturally to her without spilling their guts is proving impossible to Bron, Lucian, and Dwade.
Ruin took a while to get started, it was exposition burdened in the beginning, and it made for tough reading. However, once it picked up the pace, it was more enjoyable to read, and the story became exciting to follow.
Evangeline is a cursed princess practicing dark magic to gain more power from her necromancer master. She wishes to see that her disregarding and vengeful family pays for all their cruelty towards her. But all her scheming with her nefarious master is becoming eviler and eviler, and her ruin is near.
