Still love the world of Ylandre While this one was good, and who doesn t like a duke and his ward pining for each other, the miscommunications multiple times annoyed me. 3.5 StarsI mentioned in an update how much I loved how events in the other books are mentioned here but aren t completely rehashed because I hate when that happens and of course the writing is engaging as are the characters But it very much read like a rehashed MF historical romance with the pining, dedicated, orphaned virginal ingenue who runs off twice because of misunderstandings and has to be rescued from ravishment murder because he s a bit TSTL and the stoic, hardened, older pr 3.5 StarsI mentioned in an update how much I loved how events in the other books are mentioned here but aren t completely rehashed because I hate when that happens and of course the writing is engaging as are the characters But it very much read like a rehashed MF historical romance with the pining, dedicated, orphaned virginal ingenue who runs off twice because of misunderstandings and has to be rescued from ravishment murder because he s a bit TSTL and the stoic, hardened, older protector who has to fight his urges to claim the boy while he s still under age And then some stuff, plus an OMG a way too romantic first time encounter,stuff, secret background revealed, stuff, flashback to why the older man can t trust love, chance meeting with the one that broke his trust to rub in the happy endingColor me a bit disappointed considering how much I loved the first one and really, really liked the second one Maybe those were just as formulaic and I missed it because I was dazzled by the world building and intricacy of the tales Gah Still in love with this lovely ALL MALE worldThese men are still so good to meThis is the third novel in the Chronicles of Yllandre series, and like the first two I was just totally enthralled with this world Eresse, has created such a rich place to go in her books The imagery, the characters, the history of Yllandre is beautiful The lore and traditions by this installment were so well known to me, and so natural to read about it was almost soothing to go back for a visit.This is Reijir an Still in love with this lovely ALL MALE worldThese men are still so good to meThis is the third novel in the Chronicles of Yllandre series, and like the first two I was just totally enthralled with this world Eresse, has created such a rich place to go in her books The imagery, the characters, the history of Yllandre is beautiful The lore and traditions by this installment were so well known to me, and so natural to read about it was almost soothing to go back for a visit.This is Reijir and Naeth s story Reijir is an aristocrat, and one night him and his friends go to one of thedodgy parts of the city A fight breaks out at the tavern they are in and one of the servers, a youth named Naeth intervenes before Reijir is attacked For his troubles Naeth is almost raped and killed by the thug who attacked Reijir And in true Yllandre fashion, Reijir is the knight in shining armor, who is in the right place at the right time to rescue Naeth.Reijir finds out that Naeth is an orphan and takes him as his ward Thing is Naeth is so beautiful, so kind, so braveAND SO IN LOVE with Reijir, things will come to head with those two No way around it There is just no helping it Reijir has been hurt in his life by people he loved, his father, his lover He is not willing to open himself toheartacheBut Naeth bides his time, and little by little he becomes the most important thing that Reijir has EVER had The road to that point is full of the hurdles and drama that make me LOVE this series Reijir was A TOTAL ASS at times, but hey, it went well with Naeth s DAMSEL IN DISTRESS routine, so it worked.This story happens parallel to Rohyr and Lassen s story from 1st book as well as to Dylen s and Riodan s from second So that means we got to visit with them as well, and get some of that awesome camaraderie that exists among them One of my favorite things about these novels is the love between not just the MCs, but also the friends We also got to meet Keiran, Reijir s brother and Ruomi his lover and Reijir s right hand manI can only say one thing about Keiran and RuomiThe flies on their chambers walls might be luckiest little bastards EVER.So in conclusion, read, loved, will certainly read the next Recommend this book and this series Miscommunication andA Damsel in Distress.3 StarsI hate that theme.Naeth, felt like a 10year old character I did not heart him.Reijir he was a hot tempered mess kick ass lovely MC I heart him.This world is fabulously crafted, Naeth was a bumbling mess at times, and I adored him.

elaborate world of titles, arranged marriages and male pregnancy It follows in the footsteps of its prequels, with great characterization, vast world spread and a solid story.Naeth lost his family in a fire and ended up working in a tavern for a family friend One night, Lord of Ilmaren walks in with his friends and Naeth is completely enchanted by the Lord s exotic appearance Naeth is charmingly innocent, being raised in a sheltered manner by his loving family and still has a profound sense of right and wrong despite the jaded view the others around him possess So once he sees an injustice in a tavern brawl, he jumps to the rescues and consequently saves Reijir s life.The roles turn quickly after and it is Reijir who saves the day and eventually makes himself Naeth s guardian The attraction between them is evident and unlawful as Naeth hasn t reached the age of majority age of thirty That leads to Reijir distancing himself until the time is right, but once it is the sparks fly to the fullest.Reijir s high position is an obstacle in the long term because having Naeth as his leman doesn t solve his need for a spouse With Naeth not being a True Blood , he doesn t have a high enough social standing to fill in that role for Reijir and give him heirs Solving those serious issues will take some time and there are plenty of pages to take the readers through it.The writing style of this series is very difficult The names come on top of each other rather quickly and it s much easier to get lost in the world than to understand it A lot of the terms have been used in previous books, but even if not, I would still recommend you read them first, it will make things easier andenjoyable Despite that I do like it very much It takes me some time to get into it and get the feel of things, but once I do there is no stopping me.This particular book started slow The development kind of dragged and most of the story was from Naeth s point of view There are reasons for it, among them the need to keep Reijir mysterious and make the whole plotbelievable While it was very well thought through and developed nicely, I missed Reijir s personalityFor me he was cut off as a character, getting the chance to shine only at the very end of the story I would have easily said change the plot but give me Reijir as a full character but since that is not possible I m pretty sure other readers, just like me, will hate him a lot before even getting a chance to understand him.Naeth was a sweetheart Really innocent and na ve, he always looked how to do the best thing and often did the worst one possible It was part of his charm and made him an exceptional character Unlike Reijir, Naeth is an open book and next to him it s too easy to see Reijir as the bad guy.The side characters carried the funny parts of this story They were diverse, interesting and often without a filter when it came to speaking their mind Where the rest of the story took to the serious note and a great emotional investment, nights with friends made things look brighter, or in Naeth s case caused a blush.Chronicles of Ylandre is a series that takes some getting used to and is a bit of an acquired taste The hermaphroditism alone is not for everyone but the brave ones will probably be pleasantly surprised Eress is probably one of the most talented authors in the genre The first book in this series has taken the first place and has been firmly standing there since the day it was published That shows exactly what I m talking about and any readers who pick up one of Ylandre series books will see the brilliance of the world and the poetry of the author s words The elaborate development of every detail and the romance threaded in between the sentences will give an experience that will probably stay with you for days, because one thing is for sure, an Eress book is not something you forget Boring as f ck And here I thought Lassen was a chick with a dick Well, at least Lassen was a normal, romantic chickNaeth here was of the worst kindTSTL i.e too stupid to live He was one of those chicks whose sheer idiocy leads them headfirst into dangerous situations, from which the hero saves themJust kill me now I hated Naeth with passion Bland, blushing, stuttering, mousy, with a distasteful habit of eavesdropping..pathetic I HONESTLY can t see why Reijir would be attracted

distasteful habit of eavesdropping..pathetic I HONESTLY can t see why Reijir would be attracted to him The guy didn t have a bit of a personality..no sparkle, no humor, and no brain to talk about Reijir s ability to fall in love with that ensured that I didn t like Reijir, either First, he was under developed..we don t know much about Reijir s personality, why everyone is concerned about him, how he used to be..the reason he changed is shown only in the end of the book, when I wasn t interested any He was one dimensional The story dragged out mercilessly The sex was lukewarm cos Naeth was as boring in bed as out of it The pregnancies failed to move me The only reason this book gets 2 stars from me is because of Keiran And a brief glimpse of DylenRio I believe that this was the best book in the series so far It was cleanly written without any bog down and had all the members of the previous books in it I liked Naeth and Keiran a lot Reijir was very noble but needed a boot in the ass to wake up from the hurt Darion gave him 25 years ago Both Kieran and Reijir were mistreated by their ada and were each damaged in their own way Naeth was a study in resiliency with all that he went through in his short life This was a true romance story b I believe that this was the best book in the series so far It was cleanly written without any bog down and had all the members of the

well, are duty bound to family and are great between the sheets There was plenty of action and intrigue along with some comedy that kept the pace moving well and kept the story moving It was nice that Reijir and Darion met up again and that Darion was not so happy with the life that he threw Reijir over for Highly recommended if you can get through the first two books It s been a long time since I ve read either Sacred Fate or Hallowed Bond I enjoy this series very much because of the world that s been created and the uniqueness of the stories One thing that Eress is always able to do is make

been created and the uniqueness of the stories One thing that Eress is always able to do is make me love her characters whether they are sweet and innocent or cold and mean With this story, Naeth is the sweet, innocent one while Reijir is cold and sometimes mean and harsh They are drawn to each other from the start, though, and Reijir tries to stay the gentleman and keep his hands to himself until Naeth is no longer underage It s admirable that Reijir does that but there s also the fact that Reijir doesn t do anything with Naeth because he doesn t trust easily and doesn t want to turn out like his father who was a real monster.The fact that Reijir doesn t fully trust Naeth starts to wear on their relationship because even the smallest omission from Naeth causes Reijir to withdraw from their relationship As such, Naeth misunderstands Reijir and believes he is becoming a nuisance to Reijir Eventually Reijir realizes what he s doing and let s Naeth know his true feelings.In the beginning, I felt like this was very similar to Sacred Fate but then it goes off into it s own story and became enjoyable I had some problems in the beginning mostly because I was so confused I didn t know what was going on or who half these people were There s a glossary in the back but I don t think it helped me much The beginning was a bit slow so I wasn t quite drawn into the story until things started to escalate between Naeth and Reijir In the end, I really enjoyed the story but I was left with some questions about Naeth and his inheritance.Overall, the story is enjoyable and the world is very fascinating once you get used to some of the wording The characters and the conflicts they put themselves through were very entertaining and I liked seeing Reijir and Naeth work through it For all those wondering, yes there are view spoiler 2 hide spoiler pregnancies in this one I m hoping we get to seeof Naeth and Reijir someday because I d love to see them make a family 3.0 StarsReijir

age of consent and decides to go after the lord he has come to love This one was okay I wasn t as smitten with this couple as I was with Dylen and Riodan I can t put my finger on the source of my ambivalence other than to say that the chemistry was not really there for me It may have something to do with the fact that Naeth was Reijir s ward and even after Naeth reaches the age of consent 30 years old Reijir refers to him as youth Blech It was nice to revisit with some of the extended cast of characters as always, I love Rohyr and Dylen but they played very minor roles The writing, as usual, was tight and moved at a fairly nice clip.Bottom line I wish I loved this onethan I did By Chance Met (Chronicles of Ylandre, #3)
