Emma was twelve when she came to live
on the Satyr estate with her sister Jane, and Jane’s
husband, Nicholas. Now twenty-seven she is married to Carlo,
who spends much of his time in ElseWorld fighting the raging
war. When he visits her one Calling Night, and leaves her
with child, she’s not exactly thrilled, since she’s been
trying to avoid that situation all together. But she is
prepared to be a dutiful wife.
Dominic is a full-blooded Satyr, a
Chosen One. When the birth of a new Chosen One draws near he
is called into service to help bring his successor into the
world. When he first meets Emma he knows it’s just for the
Calling, and to help give her child skills as the next
Chosen One. But when Carlo can’t handle the event and runs,
Dominic stays to help Emma birth her child, a girl named
Rose. When Carlo dies, Dominic knows he has to have Emma in
his life, forever.
There are a few things that stand in
their way, however, like the demons Dominic constantly
battles and captures, and the fact that Emma doesn’t want
him for her new husband. Or does she?
“Dominic” is a wonderful return to the
world of the Satyrs. I absolutely fell in love with Dominic,
the tortured hero who thinks he is destined to live his life
alone. Watching him and Emma together warmed my heart, and
made my insides twitter. I enjoyed the fact that Emma was
willing to take charge of her own life in a time when women
were expected to blindly follow the will of their families.
Her strength made her the perfect compliment to Dominic, and
made this story very satisfying.
Vincent Satyr is the oldest son of
Nicholas and Jane. A lawyer, he is working hard on the
treaty to broker peace in the long war on ElseWorld. When he
summons his favorite Shimmerskin one night he doesn’t expect
her to stick around the next morning, and to stay
permanently. Vincent enlists the help of his brothers, and
vineyard caretaker Landon to help him unravel the mystery
and keep watch on Cara while he attends negotiations for the
Cara doesn’t exactly know what is
happening. As a Shimmerskin she is called to meet the carnal
needs of the Satyr male. When she stays instead of
disappearing she is thrilled with her new home, until two
unknown men remind her she has a “purpose.” She just has to
figure out what it is. When she discovers it, though, she is
less than thrilled with her new life.
“Vincent” is an interesting look at the
oldest son of Nicholas and Jane, featured in the first book
of the Satyr series. Seeing the child born in the first book
as a man was interesting for me. Cara is a fascinating
character, and I would have liked the opportunity to learn
more about her than this short story allowed. This tale also
left me with questions. I would have liked to know more
about Landon, who features heavily in the story, yet feels
strangely undeveloped to me.
Although I liked the concept, I would
have liked to have it flushed out a bit, giving me more time
with what turned into a trio, with Vincent, Cara and Landon.
