Paladin Gaby Cody has a duty to do
Godís work on Earth, but things in her life are changing.
Sheís now living with Det. Luther Cross, and finding the
feelings she has for him are hindering her abilities to stay
on target. Luther loves Gaby with all his heart, and he
wants to protect her. Heís still not sure about all her
abilities, but heís willing to trust her, even if itís a
hard thing to do.
When an evil force in town is obviously
into cannibalism and drinking blood, Gaby knows he has to be
stopped. But there are two different ways to do it: her way,
and Lutherís way. Will their differing viewpoints cause
problems, or will they learn to work together to eliminate
the evil in their town?
Servant: The Kindred is
the third book in L.L. Fosterís series, and according to her
website itís the last, which saddens me. This series is
dark, gritty and doesnít pull any punches. Iíve enjoyed
getting to know Gaby and Luther, and this last book, to me,
was the best of them all, showing the way this couple
blended together and how their lives changed with love. I
hate the idea that the series is ending, just when two new
characters have been added and my appetite has been whetted
Gaby is a no-nonsense woman, who
insists on following her calling. Still, sheís toned it down
for Luther, and still manages to get done what needs to be
done. I have always liked Lutherís character, and in this
book he takes on a new dimension to me, learning to trust
the woman he loves and teaching her how to love herself.
Servant: The Kindred is a dark urban fantasy
that is sure to thrill lovers of hard-nosed stories. Still,
it has enough tenderness in it to pull at heartstrings and
endear characters to the reader. This book is a great
addition to a series I hate to see ending.
