Soul Seer: A true immortal. Six hundred years ago, a sorcerer captured Raven. She's been his prisoner ever since. Although she can't die, she can suffer. Transported to the new world in an iron coffin, she lies buried and forgotten for nearly two hundred years -- until a construction crew digs her up and inadvertently sets her free. Starving, lost and alone, Raven staggers through a strange city filled with wagons that have no team, lights without fire -- and then there's the clothes. What exactly is the point of a thong anyway? Or shoes that hurt her feet and make her totter around like a drunken barbarian at Midsummer's festival?
Mercenaries for Hire: The vampire Ilario and his werewolf companion Wulf are partners in every sense of the word. Wulf likes variety in his bed and Ilario will do whatever it takes to keep his mate happy, even if it means tapping a female now and then. But this latest woman brings far more trouble than expected. Can they claim Raven for their own -- before she gets them all killed?
This story is pretty middle of the road. The plot is pretty standard romance fare, with no real surprises or twists. The conflict of this story is a vampire sorceress who is only mentioned twice before she appears, and is then dealt with quickly.
The sex can be spicy, but not enough so to make up for the so-so plot. That said I was also repeatedly thrown out of the story by Raven’s repetitive use of a derogatory term from a character that otherwise does not use any rough language.
Overall, an average story, not bad, not great, but good for a rainy day.
