I wanted to wait I finished the book I was reading before going through this book, but I can t And it worthed the reading Only 2 nights to finish it, and now I want to read the next book I m sure it s about Maggie and Therron I already love her Well, I would have given 4.5 stars but it s not possible, so I gave 5 Nina is than cute, they are well matched with Reddi
Reddix, a Touch Kindred, never expected to be the position of being his planet s Overlord, until Saber found his mate Lissa with the result of being Exiled for having an inappropriate relationship with his clan sister forfeiting the chance to be the Overlord The problem is that Reddix has a disability, RTS Reverse Touch Syndrome , which makes it impossible to mate with a female of his planet and increasingly painful and debilitating to function as the Overlord He makes an attempt to convince Saber to return home and assume his rightful place without Lissa only to find out Saber won t even consider it The only option left is to make a deal with the devil, or specifically the Swamp Witch , who tells him he can be helped by the blood of an Earth healer and he needs to bring this healer to her where she will obtain her blood for the potion that will keep his RTS under control With no option available Reddix goes to Earth and kidnaps Nina from her home in Florida On the way back they crash land on an unknown planet where it will take the both of them to surv
3.5 Stars Book 8 of the Kindred seriesShadowed follows closely after book 7 exiled, Reddix our hero anti hero is an old friend of Saber s from book 7 Nina is new to the series so we see the kindred from yet another pair of fresh eyes, so this one would be easy to read with out having read the previous 7.Lets start with what I like General world building was steady and I still love that there are things Evangeline can write about that will test the boundaries of our imaginations She is one of the only writer s I know that can come up with some of the most bizarre things and write them in such a way they almost seem almost plausible Nina was strong minded and though she had a few touch and go moments, where I thought she may break like most other heroines, she didn t She took things in her stride and carried on which was nice considering how much i disliked the female lead in exiled Main plot was a little on the thin side here and there It could have done with a dash action and a little less call the sympathy brigade but It moved along quickly and I didn t feel tempted skip any pages, so thats always a plus I really enjoy the interaction with previous characters and I absolutely god damn loved the little set up for the next book, I cannot wait, I have a feeling its going to be one of the best in the seriesDislikes M
3.5 StarsNina is having a pretty normal day when the almost seven foot tall Kindred walks in and kidnaps her He does seem familiar though, but he can t possibly be the man she has been dreaming about the man who scares and arouses her at the same time Reddix, a Touch Kindred, needs a the blood of a woman with a pure heart and healing hands if he is going to cure his Reverse Touch Syndrome RTS , which means he can feel everyone s emotions physically on his skin But he never expects the Earth woman to capture his heart and his lust with her strength and compassion But without the cure her blood will provide he will die, but can he sacrifice the only woman who he could ever love Another Kindred book I love this series, with each new book I am treated to a smorgasbord of alien delights, I have had fangs, double cock, sexy twins and now I have Reddix, the gorgeous Touch Kindred who knows the best use for his tongue, amongst other things.This book doesn t actually differ that much from the rest of the Brides of Kindred series, but it mixture of fun, angst and sexy is a winner for me so I don t mind that it is slightly repetitious with its story line What I m reading for is the sexy alien and watching him woo the Earth girl he can life bond with and Reddix and Nina didn t disappoint, they were great together Her compassion soothed the rough edges of his personality and
I really enjoyed this installment of the Brides of the Kindredalthough Reddix was a big jerk at the beginning Thankfully, he grew on my after a while and I just loved all his dirty talk.Reddix is desperate he is burdened with the responsibility of leading his people or risking civil war He feels trapped by his parents telling him he must continue the blood line and marry a woman he does not love But worst of all is his medical condition RTS reverse touch syndrome where he literally feels peopl
Reddix and Nina Kind of a beauty and the beast tale because Reddix has been suffering and alone for so long, he has become an uncaring beast He cannot stand another s touch and can t even stand being in the same room as other people because their emotions effect him like pain Now, forced to become the new overlord when his cousin defects, he cannot avoid others Gradually he is becoming sicker and sicker with no hope in sight He decides to turn to the evil swamp witch for a cure The swamp witch asks for something he really shouldn t agree to but he does And now Nina s life is in danger But Nina isn t your regular girl even if she is human.It s kinda cheesy, and the story is rather convoluted and too long But it was pretty entertaining There are obvious plot devices galore, yet I didn t mind Though I admit to skimming here and there Especially the parts dealing with Saber and Lissa, just wasn t interested in thei
The next book in the Kindred series When Lissa and Saber found the courage to bond in the last book, that meant that Reddix came to be next in line to lead the Touch Kindred s planet Suffering from RTS Reverted Touch Syndrom, this was his worst nightmare come to life He s feeling everything anyone around him is feeling, and has become a recluse hiding under a hood just to get away from any and everyone The witch in the swamp has a solution for him, find a human on Earth, the one he s been dreaming of, and return with her to the swamp Once she s sacrificed blood, he ll be free of this crippling condition What Reddix never anticipated was the fe
Reddix has reversed touch so he feels everyone but not Nina s They end up in a weird stressful situation that ends up bringing them closer together I really like that this book didn t have a bad guy It was about Saber and Lissa relationship causing Reddix to be the new leader and all the complications that comes with it
