Paranormal, erotica - Novella
TBR reviewer: Amanda
Yancey Crow Wolf, Elfie Hardesty, and Oliver Ryan had always been the best of friends. But
jealousy, desire, and unspoken feelings forced them apart.
When circumstances bring them together again, they set off on a journey across the Lakota Badlands to investigate an ancient Lakota vampire mystery. It's part of an ancient Sioux prophecy in which, unknown to them, they have always played a part.
By the end of the journey, they will be lovers and heroes, and one of them will venture to the
other side of death and back.
Be Warned: menage a trois romance, m/f/m, m/m/f, m/m, anal sex.
The death of one's employer sends three old friends into a strange situation. Into a strange world where vampires, Native American legends and ancient evil all blend. Not only do the three find themselves fighting for their own lives and those of the people around them, they also have to deal with their hearts.
The story pulls the reader into the middle of the mystery from the very beginning, with strange deaths and weird remains. I enjoyed the overall story and creativeness of the plot, but felt that at times things were almost too rushed, due to the shortness of the story. The plot twists developed quickly but the solution seemed to come more easily than it might have with more time, and I felt the same way about the relationship development.
However, I really liked the mix of vampire story with Native American elements. I enjoyed all three main characters and found myself pulling for them to work out their differences to find their happily-ever-after. (The sex scenes were fun to read, too!) I loved the glimpses of their shared past and how they got to where they were during the present.
All in all, this is worth the read and I would read other books by the same author.
