For decades, Warrior Duncan has had an on-again, off-again relationship with a woman opposed to his warrior lifestyle. When Rachel shows up in his life again, he wants to keep his distance, but the infamous breh-hedden, the myth-that-isn’t-a myth, bears down on him keeping him in a perpetual caveman-like state. How is he supposed to make war when he’s falling in love with a woman who only wants peace?
Rachel can’t believe Duncan is back in her life. She spent years getting over him, over all the fights they had about her dislike of the war and his love of being a Militia Warrior. The problem is, she never stopped loving him and the trance he’s stuck in has her out of her mind with worry. When the breh-hedden crashes down on her, she wants only one thing: Duncan … in her bed … now. But how is she supposed to stay with a man who represents what she hates most about their ascended vampire world?
RAPTURE’S EDGE 1: Awakening is a paranormal romance novel, a vampire romance with a fantasy edge, of the Rapture’s Edge Series. The series is preceded by two related books: BRINK OF ETERNITY and THE DARKENING. RAPTURE’S EDGE is part of the Guardians of Ascension Saga!
For far too long Rachel has had a conflicted relationship with Duncan. He is a Warrior with strong drives but all Rachel really wants is a life together filled with love. Second Earth is fooling themselves if they feel life is about to get easier as there is an even bigger threat looming and both Duncan and Rachel are right in its path. It's time for Rachel to step up and finally claim her man but there's a whole lot of work to do before anyone can rest peacefully!
Awakening is another spin off from the Guardians of Ascension series and it's simply amazing that Ms Roane keeps these books fresh and filled with new ideas. Oh, if you are a fan of the original warriors, have no fear because we still get glimpses of them but the story line is developing as we learn even more about the possibilities of what these new dimensions offer. It's a remarkable idea that we can grow and ascend to become even more than mere human and the vampire progression sure makes it a steamy one!
This author takes her ideas and lets them run and now she is introducing new characters, whilst giving those we love even greater purpose. Endelle is still that kick ass heroine readers know and love, but Third Earth has lots of possibilities and I can't wait to find out just what exactly is next!
