Deep Deliverance, Z. A. Maxfield

Genre:  Romance, LGBTQIA

I love Z.A.Maxfield books, but only came across them last year. I’d jumped in with book three of the Cowboy series and had to read the rest…so even though I’d not read first tow here I thought I’d be able to keep up.

I read amazon samples of books one and two and that gave me some background. Adin though – at times he’s like a toddler, short attention span, deliberately disruptive and it was hard imagining him as a scholar, a PHD, very respected in his field. I think if I’d read the first two books maybe I’d have understood him more? Still, I really liked him, and of course when he finds out about Donte’s part in his unwilling turning he’s devastated.

He’s been struggling to cope anyway and this seems to send him into a kind of listless depression. He’s not eating – well not from humans anyway but he can’t survive off animal blood and Donte knows he really needs to be firmer about his education, and formalising his entry into the world of Vampires, but he loves Adin, loves him desperately, and can’t bear to upset him even more. You can feel the way they are both in such a dilemma, not knowing what to do. I kind of understood why Donte did what he did, he’s lost so many people over his centuries long life and he couldn’t bear to lose Adin. It must have been a hard decision and not one you can take time over the way it seems to have happened.

Then the funeral of Ned Harwiche comes up, and Adin goes to it along with Donte’s long time rival Santos. Donte knows though that rival or not Santos will look after Adin and keep him safe. Adin’s a kind of magnet for trouble though and soon he’s deep into a mystery and kidnapped. Poor Adin, I felt for him, he was a bit naive but I did understand why, and he was trying to do his best when he got kidnapped.

Ned’s family are very involved in this book, and they’re a strange and spooky unit. Adin gets a crash course from Barrett Harwiche in Shifters, adding a bit more to his fast growing knowledge of the supernatural world, but it seems the more he learns the more there is to know, and he breaks rules without even having any idea of them. He’s kind of like a moth to a flame, bumbling round into danger, unable to escape.

Its a story that’s got lots of surprises in, and some interesting plot lines and I do want to go back to books one and two sometime. I think this is the end of the series as its labelled a trilogy, but I’d be happy to read more from this world, maybe a side series about other characters? There’s such great potential here for more IMO.

Stars: Four, a really satisfying read.

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.
