Rebel

Author: Zoë Archer

Publisher: Zebra (2010)

Pages: 398

Synopsis: Nathan Lesperance, is used to being different. He’s the first Native attorney in Vancouver, and welcome neither with white society nor his sometime tribe. Not to mention the powerful wildness he’s always felt inside him, too dangerous to set free. Then he met Astrid Bramfield and saw his like within her piercing eyes. Now, unless she helps him through the harsh terrain and the harsher unknowns of his true abilities, it could very well get him killed…

Opinion:

(Love the cover!)

This will probably sound derogatory (not my intention though), but thank heavens this is the last The Blades of the Rose book before the one in which my dear Catullus Graves -the only reason I kept reading this series, since book one- gets to be the hero, because the whole Heirs versus Blades, magic that can make one rule the world, the primary source (whatever that is), and so on kind of plot is getting really tiresome. I think the idea is okay and I have no complain whatsoever about the writing style, but for some reason (I can’t explain besides the this story is getting old part) since Scoundrel that after the first 100 pages or so, I found myself wishing the book would be over soon.

In Rebel things start off a bit differently when compared to the previous books; the hero and heroine -Nathan and Astrid- first go on a personal mission (at least personal for Nathan) and when that’s taken care of, they embark on the typical Blades adventure to find a magical, rather important object which the Heirs are also after. As expected, the romance plays a big part in the story and the sexual tension is thick (no pun intended).  The romantic complication has to do with Astrid not wanting to fall in love again because she’s a widow and still misses her husband desperately. Of course Nathan will do his best to change her mind.

So basically Rebel follows the same recipe as Warrior (still my favorite) and Scoundrel, even if there’s a very different kind of “magic” going on envolving Nathan and his…special ability – I’m not saying what it is because it caught me by surprise and I was very happy it did, so I refuse to spoil it for potencial readers. 😉

I have been very lazy reviewing lately so that would be all! *flees*
