Tristan has agreed to bond with Ushna, but there is still much to do and returning to Tribe Enkidu puts everyone on edge. Tristan is being stalked like prey, all the while fighting depression as he mourns the loss of Nikita, and enduring a battle of wills with the Elder Council over his birthright. The pleading of his adoptive daughter only adds still more stress to the situation.

Stumbling onto a secret prison while searching for Ushna leads Tristan to risk everything to free a lost God. But breaking the tie to his Flame has more repercussions than Tristan knew and the assistance of a forgotten Goddess and a centuries old lover may not be enough to save him.

My View:

Surrounded by Crimson picked up immediately where Dreams of the Forgotten ended. You need to read this series in order to best enjoy each book as this is a series of books that are all to be continued endings.

Surrounded by Crimson was more cohesive and not as overwhelming as the previous story. I felt like even though the author continued introducing new things, she finally got down to working with the storyline and characters she had. The new things introduced served to bring everything together. More bits of the plot moved forward and were resolved than in previous novels and I was not left with so many questions or worrying if I missed important details.

The plot is starting to become very tense and feels like things are either at their climax or about to reach that point. Things are more intense and I am on the edge of my seat waiting for what is to come. I need to know what happens next. I need see how things will turn out with the baddies, but more importantly, I need to know that things will be OK for the good guys.

This world continues to be fabulous and fascinating and I can so easily see this being made into an audiobook or movie. It is just so epic that the reader can’t help but imagine these wondrous things in their head. I just hope other readers are as inventive as I have been because I am in love with the way I am picturing these characters and their surroundings.

Again, the author carried through the absolute love and devotion these characters have for each other not only as mates, but as family and friends. I love how this thread has been nothing but perfectly consistent throughout this series. In fact, it gets more developed and more pronounced as the books are issued. Surrounded by Crimson has taken this love to the next level and i cannot wait to see what happens when all the men get back together. I just know their connection will be off the charts HOT because of the love they feel for each other.

Ms. Ander, when will the next book be out? I need it now!!! 🙂
