Tamed, Rebecca Zanetti

Tamed, Rebecca Zanetti

Review from Jeannie Zelos Book reviews.
I came into the Dark Protectors series late, beginning with Shadowed, which I loved so when I saw Tamed up for review I wanted to read it. I wasn’t disappointed. Its quite a short novel but packed with story not with filler, which makes it seem longer. I don’t have exact length but I’d guess around 100-120 pages and for me last night when I had a spare hour it was perfect. I hate leaving a book til next day so this one, which I knew I had time to finish was perfect. Despite not having read the first few books it’s a series which is easy to pick up. Rebecca gives enough info for reader to work out back story though when I’ve time I’d love to read earlier books too. So many books, so little time 🙂
Caleb’s a real hero, has loved Lily for centuries but been unable to do anything about it. Now things have changed and he’s determined Lily won’t escape this time. He’s a typical alpha hero, protective and a fighter, and it seems odd that Fate chose him as a Prophet – one of the peacekeepers. It works though, his skills are needed. Lily was lovely, always very aware of her duty, and as a Prophet she struggles when she has dreams that tell her she must do something she feels is wrong. Her dreams have never let her down before, but this just feels so wrong she’s in a quandary.
Its a good story, realistic even though its fantasy, and for me stories have to feel real. I was rooting for Lily and Caleb, and when they did get together – well, Rebecca excels at writing those scenes. Sensual and steamy, not squirmy and sickly as we get too often. I had an idea of what might be the plot, but not the way it was executed and I was only partially right – I do love to be surprised by how things pan out. It’s priced at £1.85 for 30.500 words.
Stars:four and a half. Another great book for the series. .
