Kyraryker’s quotes


"She thought it over, but couldn’t see any immediate loopholes other than the threat of her inner slut emerging, and she could darned well control that little bitch."— Susan Elizabeth Phillips

Lord of Fire by Gaelen Foley

Lord of Fire - Gaelen Foley

This books starts off highly charged with Lucien holding court over a party that is basically a BDSM and orgy scene. I did say these books were not for the faint of heart didn't I?
Lucien and Alice's first scene together made my toes curl and well, basically "Oh Nelly!" is all I have to say about that.

 

Lucien is that delicious combo of dangerously dark and little boy vulnerable. Alice is the consummate good girl (Lucien calls her "Goody Two-Shoes") until she gets around Lucien, then she finds herself behaving in ways she never imagined. Sounds a little trite but trust me people it works, or at least it did for me!

 

This book started off incredibly good but kind of fizzled toward the middle and end. The end picks up in action with a spy trying to blow up London and Lucien trying to stop it.
This story worked best for me with Alice and Lucien struggling to deal with their feelings. Good god the tension!

 

Completely dark book but I loved it. I can't seem to adequately put into words why I loved this book, it's just I was completely tied to these characters and will remember them for a long time.

 

The first line of the book is a quote by Shakespeare: "Something wicked this way comes". Couldn't have said it better myself.
