Green and Bracken’s beloved survived their enemy’s worst—with help from unexpected vampiric help.
But survival is a long way from recovery, and even further from safety. Green’s people want badly to return to the Sierra Foothills, but they’re not going with their tails between their legs. Before they go home, they have to make sure they’re free from attack—and that they administer a healthy dose of revenge as well.
As Cory negotiates a fragile peace between her new and unexpected lovers, Green negotiates the unexpected power that comes from being a beloved leader of the paranormal population. Together, they might heal their own wounds and lead their people to an unprecedented place at the top of the supernatural food chain—a place that will allow them to return home a better, stronger whole.
1st Edition published as Wounded: The Second Novel of the Little Goddess by iUniverse, 2006.
Wounded gets right to the heart of the title; all our characters are wounded and looking to heal. In this volume, they are finally able to do that and kick some butt along the way! This has romance, action and just a little humor to lighten things up. The world building is wonderful and I was drawn right in.
At the heart of the book is the relationship between Cory, Green and Bracken, with Nicky thrown in for good measure. We see the anguish still lingering in Cory’s heart over the loss of Adrian; the same anguish that still plagues Green and even Bracken as well. This pain colours Cory’s love for all the men and how each of them fit in her life and her bed.
Outside this is the conflict with Mist and Goshawk. Green must face old wounds in dealing with the sidhe ruling the city and decide how to protect his clan.
I really enjoyed all the interactions in this book. I loved all the perspectives given, especially Green’s. I was moved to tears on more than one occasion. I felt for the characters; I felt anger, despair, love.
I think I have finally forgiven and let go of Adrian 🙂 I can’t wait for more in this world.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
