Torched (Dark Kings #13) by Donna Grant
Synopsis: The King of Silvers. Cunning, perceptive, resourceful. Determined. Banished from Dreagan eons ago because of a betrayal that shattered his entire existence, his sole focus in life is to exact revenge against the Dragon Kings. A formidable fighter with centuries of rage on his side, Ulrik will stop at nothing to take down those who exiled him.
He has been alone, trusting no one for thousands of years. Until she walks into his life. He should not yearn for her, but there is no stopping the fiercely burning attraction. When he’s with her, he isn’t thinking of war or revenge. He only thinks about her, craves her. Burns for her. But soon he will be forced to choose: Will he continue on his course of destruction or will he be able to set aside his vengeance to save the woman who risked everything for him.
Review: I have looked forward to Ulrik’s story and this did not disappoint! OMG, I loved every second of it. It is 386 pages long and I read it in one day; it was perfect and handled the backstory well and it was believable as Ulrik slowly came back into the fold with Con and Dreagan. Eilish was a strong, well developed character who was a perfect match for Ulrik. Their chemistry was explosive and they worked well together. I liked that she didn’t push him or try to change him, which I believe is why she was able to win his love in the end. It this installment we do have an epic battle between Mikkel and Usaeil vs. Con and Ulrik (that is right they fight side-by-side). So many pieces are being moved around and Donna Grant does a really good job keeping the plot and conflicts moving along without getting confusing or complicated. Everything flows together well. I am not going to talk about any of the plot developments because I don’t want to spoil it for anyone, but know that it is awesome and things that we want to happen, happen.
