Eddie Drake, notorious agent of the Sidhe Authority, has always been a womanizer. So he’s as surprised as anyone when he can’t get a certain black-haired witch out of his mind. When Alise Rodgers wakes up in Otherworld, a mysterious connection to the place haunts her. And then there’s a more immediate concern – she would never have expected to find Drake sitting vigil for her. While she’s grateful, she’s not at all interested in his bedroom eyes. They’ve always clashed. But they must work together after Alise discovers a rebellious plot brewing among the Sidhe, and puts her life on the line in the bargain.
Vessel is the second book in the Children of the Sidhe series. (See review of book #1, Tribute.) And, as much as I loved and enjoyed book 1 I have to say Vessel was even better. The characters and world richer and more engaging (which is saying something considering how well she did originally, lol).
In this instalment of the Children stories, we find Alise, self-sufficient witch, being drawn into both the war between factions of the Sidhe and into the arms of Eddie, the womanizing half-sidhe.
The love story is slightly less complicated but just as fulfilling and the intrigue is way more! Well, any time you get the ancient Goddess Morrigan’s attention I’d have to say it counts as more. The story is perfect for this size, novella, and yet still manages to leave you wanting the next book even before you set this one down.
I normally have more to say but I don’t want to reveal too much so let’s just go with: Great story and wonderful characters. I’d recommend for anyone that loves paranormal, fantasy, romance, or any combo there of.
About the Author
I am an indie author of fantasy and paranormal romance. My novella, Tribute, is available now on Smashwords and Amazon. I’ll release the sequel in late 2011. While the genre of these novellas is paranormal romance, I don’t limit myself in my reading or my writing to one type of fantasy. I love it all, from the epics to the dark beasties to the mythological, sociological side. I’ve been drawn into the self-publishing revolution to realize my dream of writing fiction for an audience.
