his failed assassination attempt Cael tries for damage control speaking of warriors who grow estlessfailed assassination attempt Cael tries for damage control speaking of warriors who grow estless waiting for the attack on Raintree Judah learns of another warrior who has left for North Carolina to kill Mercy and take control of the Sanctuary Judah states that not only is the Raintree Dranir Dante his kill but he also claims Mercy as his as well Mercy is a powerful healing empath who can take others pain onto herself and heal them While helping a couple that was is a wreck near the Sanctuary a set up via the Ansaras Cael has an Ansara assassin attempt to take her life Judah kills one of his own clan to protect her only to state she is his to kill He eturns her home
where eve not so matter of factly declaresEve not so matter of factly declares he is her father this whole part of the book seemed farfetched As Judah stays at the Sanctuary he learns about their child her powers and Mercy s decision to keep her from him as a civil war amongst the Ansaras ensues during Cael s battle for Dranir I was not Judah s fan In fact I still don t like him and I finished the book He was just too much Alpha male that he came off as a class A douche bag He never softened during the whole book and constantly displayed dominance in every situation I m also a bit disappointed that they build up to this battle during all three books and between the end of one chapter where the fight is about the start and the beginning of the next it s almost over And of course Dante and Gideon s ladies whom they both left at home decide to come to the battle even though they cannot eally assist and are just going to distract them I hate the helpless female thinking they are escuing the male but in all actuality they are just going to distract him and possible get him hurt or killed Buh The ending is THE TIME HAS COME FOR THE BATTLE TO DECIDE THE RAINTREES' FATEWar with their archrival the evil Ansara clan is unavoidable For Mercy Raintree a war means she must assume her position as guardian of the Sanctuary the sacred Raintree home place dee.

#was very good #very good it didn t uite deliver as expected I was a bit disappointed but not with the whole story 5 stars for the action part It was apparently amazing and expressive a mix of excitement and dread The moment Mercy lifted the powerful Ancelin s sword from its esting place in or. P in the Smoky Mountains But doing so threatens to disclose her most prized secret one Mercy has kept to herself for six yearsAs the solstice looms and the battle heats up Dranir Judah Ansara gathers his forces intending to wipe every Raintree fr. Der to be a troop leader I
Suddenly Felt A Jolt Of Excitement Andfelt a jolt of excitement and an down my arms The arrival of Dante a Dranir of Raintree and Gideon his brother made this battle scene perfect 1 star for the omantic part I felt no love connection between Judah and Mercy They had spent less than twenty four hours together so I think they knew nothing about each other In my eyes what they had together was just a physical attraction After Judah had known about his daughter he spent most of his time with Eve so how would he be able to get to know Mercy better Moreover I hated one of the sex scenes that he took advantage of her while she was exhausted
And Then Forced Her To Have Sex With Him Itthen forced her to have sex with him It t matter how strong feelings she had for him what he did was wrong She tried to un away and she said no A woman said NO Why was it so hard for him to understand Not only didn t he care what she said but he also told her that he would take her anyway he could and he intended to have her that night no matter what Oh well excuse me buddy You could call it whatever you wanted but I called it ape ArghBy the way I was surprisingly satisfied with the twist ending Aside from the things I didn t like about this book I enjoyed eading it for the most part So I ended up giving this one 3 stars Part 3 of 3Overall this was a fun glimpse in a world created by three different authors You will want to search under Raintree to find all three books as you have three different authors I must admit that while this are a fun Einatmen, Ausatmen read each author has much better work to choose a book from AUDIOBOOK REVIEW Rating 455Heat Rating 35Narrator Performance Female 45 Male 455OMG such a FANTASTIC finale It s a shame that Sanctuary was the last in the Raintree trilogy it was the weakest of the three books Reading this trilogy is like going on a vacation where you get sick the last two days You know you enjoyed the first few days but what youemember is the bad endingThe heroine was weak both in will and mind Who cares if he is an evil bad guy I knew him for 24 hrs 7 yrs ago and I love him He wants me dead and practically apes me but that s okay I love him I wouldn t let her water my plants much less have her guarding a sanctuary Then there was the hero who kills one of his own because the guy was trying to kill the heroine Not because he wants her alive but because he wants to be the one to kill her What a hero swoonAfter the first two book you think you have some idea of the world the Raintrees Ansaras live in and the powers they have Then Sanctuary comes along Suddenly the bad guys are much stronger with many talents then they had in the other books If they had been that strong in the first book the Ansaras would have wiped out the Raintrees without breaking a sweat Then there wouldn t have been a need for a second much less a third book I m glad they needed a second book though it was the best in the series IMO. Om the face of the land Including Mercy whom he's claimed as his to kill Then he comes face to face with her and with her daughter Eve Will Mercy's closely guarded secret change not only the outcome of the battle but also Judah's own bitter heart.
