I love the MC and her paramour is an amazingly complicated woman who I am glad for a redemption after her seeming betrayal and death in the previous books. If I have one complaint its that the timeline is so crunched. Mar 17, Cindy rated it it was amazing. Just loved this I am so happy to get Charaxus' story after the previous stories.
Holly was right about her. She is an amazing woman with a horrific past. Mara has had a similar past of abuse and hate. I felt for them both and their fateful love was breathtaking. I loved the ending as well.
Jun 02, Lizbeth Valentin rated it it was amazing. Love it!! Love is love. Love is never wrong. Trust the one you love! This book is amazing, let your imagination do the rest! Feb 17, charles clayson rated it it was amazing. Wrought with emotional strife also. Gentle and loving even in the moments of pain and discomfort! Jul 01, Britney Jackson rated it it was amazing. There were so many things that I loved about this book that I don't even know where to start.
First, I loved Mara's quirky little artist community. Second, like all of Bridget Essex's knight books, it was incredibly entertaining. I never get tired of reading about awesome sword fights involving strong, beautiful women. But finally, and most importantly, this book was SO much more than entertaining. It was heartbreaking and heartwarming all at the same time. I cried so much while I read this book There were so many things that I loved about this book that I don't even know where to start.
I cried so much while I read this book. I have never identified with any characters as much as I did with these. They were hurt by the people who should have loved them like me.

They were damaged like me. They were afraid to love anyone like me. They were afraid that no one would ever love THEM like me. And there were other, more specific similarities that just made these characters so heartbreakingly relatable.

These characters and their story dug into my heart in a way that no other characters have. I am SO thankful to Bridget Essex for writing such a beautiful and vulnerable book. Dec 22, Megan added it Shelves: romance , lesbians. Disclaimer - I'm adding just about every book I read in to Goodreads in December. I probably read this way back in January.
I read a ton of lesbian romance novels this year. I have no idea why. All of them were of decidedly average quality, and most of them mesh together in my memory. This series I read mostly last year. Then I think there was a third one I can barely remember? And then this one. Which I basically skimmed through. This one was my least favorite of the series. I honestly don't even feel like I can be bothered to get into details. It wasn't terrible, it just The one sex scene was OK I guess.

Nov 03, Casey rated it liked it. Unfulfilled I was really looking forward to Charaxus's story and I have to say I was kind of let down. She's a big and bad knight who you really don't get to spend much time with and I still don't feel like we got that in this book. There wasn't much build up between them, granted I'm all for instant connections, but I still want something between them to grab onto, unlike the other Knight books where's there's a bit more development between the characters.
And the ending just left many things u Unfulfilled I was really looking forward to Charaxus's story and I have to say I was kind of let down. And the ending just left many things unsaid and a bit lacking. What happened in Agrotera? What happens with them? Just seemed a bit rushed. I love the Knight books and just wished Charaxus' would have lived up to my expectations of her image. Jul 02, susan rated it it was amazing. Another homerun Bridget hit another homerun with this one. I love the storyline. These two women were perfect for each other. Thank you Bridget for another great read.
Definitely recommend this book. May 02, Shelley M. This was definitely my favorite of the series. I liked how Mara was an artist, I loved the weird artist community that she lived in, and I thought the stuff about her past was very touching and real.

I've got a bone to pick with the author. Okay, so this is part of the "Knight" series, right? The prequel novellas, has a couple where one has black hair and the other has red hair. The main couple, from novella 1 and 2, one has black hair and the other has red hair. And, the couple in this novella, novella number 3, one has black hair and the other has red hair. I can forgive the fact that half of each couple has black hair -- dark coloured hair is pretty common.
It can come in a bunch of diffe I've got a bone to pick with the author. It can come in a bunch of different shades and textures.
A dark and stormy night
It isn't even a common hair colour! And like, if you got all three couples in the same room, they'd be photo-copies of each other. Because they all exist in the same universe, and will probably all be together at some point. I hate it. I hate it so much. Holy shit it's so stupid. Still, Mr. Are they really totally unlike you? Or is there a part of you that understands them? Yes, we do, especially in The Dark Knight. An agent of chaos, his unpredictable murdering and maiming all who might happen across his path just makes him all the more compelling.
