Stone Song, D.L. McDermott
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews

The third book in the series, and I’ve read and enjoyed them all so far. Each novel is complete, no cliffhangers ( hurrah!) but they build upon characters and actions from previous books. For me the series just keeps on getting better and better.
This time we meet Elada. He was for hundreds of years the Right Hand of sorcerer Miach. Means he’s a warrior, the one who protects Micah while he’s spell casting, they fight together as one, each making the other stronger. The bond was broken in the last book as Micah wanted to be with human Helene, and was unable to make a permanent bond with her while still connected to Elada. It means Elada too is free now to seek his own companion, and he’s been interested in musician Sorcha for some time.
When he approaches her though he finds out she knows a little about the Fae, and has been warned off contact by her gran who brought her up, not only that but she’s had a really awful experience with one, so that first meeting doesn’t go well. Elada isn’t easily put off and things heat up when the Prince Consort finds her…and wants her for the use of her voice in his plans to break down the wall between the worlds. The Prince is deliciously callous, cruel to the point of evil, treats humans as disposable, and a great example of the sort of Fae best left behind the wall….a great character to have in a book though 🙂
Its another story of Fae, drama, danger, hot, erotic sex, and how two people so different can learn to trust each other. I love the way the author takes these people and uses the story to bring them together. Its not a sweet sappy romance though but one with real dangers, and with scenes that build on past books and set stage for future ones. I’m wondering if maybe Finn will be next? There’s a hint of someone that might intrigue him…and what about Nieve and her family problems…
Once again the way out of the danger is set with characters already having the talents they need, but maybe needing them fine tuned to use them. I hate those where right at the pivotal moment someone gets a new skill, out of the blue but just what’s needed to outwit the enemy, and not only is it very convenient but they always have perfect control too. This series has people learning to use their gifts, studying and working hard. Its a very “real” feel too as if the story could possibly be true.
Stars: another great read, 4.5 stars.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
