Dao Kan Shu and Kenichi Ohara left San
Francisco a year ago after they were presumed dead in a
fire. It’s been 100 years since Shu’s beloved Toshiro died
in his arms. He believes Ken is Toshiro returned to him. It
took Toshiro’s death to make Shu understand love, happiness
and passion. Now he treats Ken as the treasured lover that
he is. Until someone from Shu’s past enters their lives and
makes them both doubt what they have.
Sakurai has been searching for Dao. He
has plans for revenge. Dao killed the vampire who made him,
Sakurai’s favorite. Sakurai envies Dao what he has with Ken
and will do what he can to destroy it. Through manipulation
of each one’s doubts, Sakurai is able to drive a wedge
But Sakurai is not the only threat to
Ken and Shu.
The witch Jaya has had 125 years to
secure her immortality and she is nearing the end of her
time. She must raise the Dark One to ensure she lives
forever. She will need vampire blood and a sacrifice but the
key to all she wants is Meg Silivasi.
Meg is the last in a long line of gypsy
women with the power to imprison the Dark One and ensure
that he never becomes flesh. And that would be great if Meg
knew she has this power. Instead she needs to help of her
psychic boyfriend and two unlikely allies—Ken Ohara and Dao
Kan Shu. The four of them have to work together to stop Jaya
and the demon.
But in the end will this strange
alliance be enough to save their love?
Alliances is Book 3 in the Dragon’s Disciple
trilogy. And just like the first and second books, I liked
it and I didn’t like it. Alliances is still
dark so why did I pick it up and read it? Because I just had
to know. I was thoroughly intrigued with Book 2 and wanted
to see where Ken and Shu are now. I was not disappointed.
The characters are still strong and the plotline is full of
surprises. I really enjoyed reading the final installment of
Ken and Dao’s unique relationship.
