Tag Time: Buffy The Vampire Slayer

Thank you Jamsu for tagging me!

I am a pretty big Buffy fan so this made my day lol

Buffy: A Character Who Lives A Double Life

June from Marie Lu’s Legend books. Is she on the side of the Republic? The Patriots? The Colonies? Haha I mean I know but still, watching her try and navigate as a double agent is awesome and so much fun.

Willow: A Badass Witch
A Badass Witch…I mean does Ead count? I mean she gets accused of it so we’re going with it, I love Ead from The Priory of The Orange Tree.
Xander: A Character who Just Provides Comic Relief

Altair from We Hunt The Flame gives me absolute life and makes me chuckle so much. I’m actually pretty hard to make laugh while reading a book but Altair’s hilarious.

Dawn: Favorite Sibling Relationship
Fred & George Weasley from Harry Potter. I adored their twin relationship…pardon me while I go sob in a corner now.
Angel: An Extremely Broody Character

Alec Lightwood…I mean he grows out of it, eventually, but he was a broody little shit at times.

Cordelia: A Character Who Undergoes Major Growth

Hesina from Descendant of the Crane. She starts out as a seeker of truth, but she comes to realize sometimes the truth is more than we can handle.

Spike: A Character With A Redemption Arc

Balthazar from Bad Breed The Necromancer’s Bride/ Gaslamp Gothic series. I cannot think of a character more deserving of this atm, and he’s pretty great.

Giles: A Parental Figure

Oshe from Kingdom of Souls was such a breath of fresh air, a supportive father who loved his. daughter and had no reservations on showing affection. More of this, please?

Faith: A Character With Questionable Alliances

Draco Malfoy, I mean, let’s be real, I question even his choice in goons.

Tara: A book With LGBTQIA Romance

The Veiled Threat, a kickass female Elven Pirate Captain and a pretty awesome Princess. Need I say more?

I tag
Everyone.

Synopsis:
Forgiveness is not Gabriel D’Ange’s strong suit.
A self-appointed soldier of God with a penchant for ruthlessly punishing his enemies, he vanished after Anne Lawrence stabbed him with his own dagger.
The smart thing would be to let him go.
Unfortunately, Anne’s life isn’t just lonely without Gabriel. It’s insufferably boring.
Determined to heal the rift between them, she goes in search of her tempestuous former lover, black parasol in hand and daeva magic crackling at her fingertips. But Gabriel has his own plans afoot and Anne finds herself drawn into one of his tangled webs, much against her better judgment.
Gabriel’s nemesis has reappeared in Brussels, a vile slaver who’s plundering the Congo Free State with the blessing of King Leopold. Gabriel might be willing to give Anne a second chance, but not until Jorin Bekker’s head is lying at his feet.
Back in London, the quasi-reformed necromancer Balthazar sets his sights on the same quarry. He holds a very personal grudge against Bekker — and killing him might be the only way to keep Gabriel D’Ange from Balthazar’s own throat.
When the hunters collide at a lavish gala thrown by the king, Anne learns just how far she’ll go to save the man she loves.
[Note: The Necromancer’s Bride is the sequel to A Bad Breed, which should be read first.]

My Review

This is just yet another example of Kat Ross’s perfection.

I’m obviously not biased in anyway, amiright?

But honestly I fell in love with her Gaslamp Gothic series when I had the privilege to read and review Bad Breed with Xpresso Tours earlier this year. This is everything I like in a romance book, where the romance is blended in flawlessly with awesome action scenes, supernatural, and Victorian-era awesomeness.

Not only did I get more of my favorite pair, Anne and Gabriel, I also got to see more of Balthazar who I find myself having a huge soft spot for. Now this is the fourth book in this series but it’s only necessary to read Bad Breed before it, the other two do not have to be read in order/with it. But. I mean, if you want more gothic awesomeness, I say, go ahead and read those first two as well.

The satisfaction I got from Anne and Gabriel’s storyline in this made me ecstatic! I was like jumping for joy while reading this. [Not really, I’m old and can’t jump anymore, but, I do a bit of a happy wriggle of sorts]

I did miss seeing Vivienne but I do understand why there was not a focus or entrance of her in this book other than in reference. It was necessary in a lot of ways and it worked out so well.

Also this may have one of the best epilogues ever, I’m just ‘forewarning’ you.

Anne is on a mission, she wants Gabriel to know her reasons for the choices she made the last time they saw each other. She knows he doesn’t forgive easily but her heart won’t forget easily either and he left his mark on it. She also acknowledges that there is something more of a ‘beast’ in her than she’d like to admit, and Gabriel is the only one she can share this information with.

While though she pursues Gabriel, he has a score to settle and not even love can deter him. This also leads to an unlikely if not temporary alliance.

What does this mean for our lovers? What becomes of them? Could it perhaps be hinted out in the title? Who knows! Find out next week on-

Okay just kidding on the find out next week, but honestly there’s so much in this novel, it’s packed with so much to enjoy.

Five huge cups of coffee from me, I think I will just go read this again now.
