Hi hot cute girly and boy geeks of mine, the wait is finally over! The second novel by Emily Guido is here, and it is the second novel in her light-bearer series. Beware as always for some spoilers and here is my review:
“Ransom” is the Second Novel in “The Light-Bearer Series” which is the continuation of Tabbruis and Charmeine’s romantic and turbulent love story and mission on Earth to battle Lucifer’s minions!
Tabbruis and Charmeine’s life at the ‘Castle Charmeine’ is blissful until the reality of ruling the Hellish Blood-Hunters’ Elder Council hits them in the face. Then, as a one-two punch, Lord Cromwell, one of the most deadly and powerful Blood-Hunters on Earth has escaped the Elder Council Prison! Lord Cromwell sends a beautiful agent to cause trouble for Tabbruis and Charmeine! He also desperately wants something Tabbruis has!
There are more surprises in store for the inhabitants of the ‘Castle Charmeine’.
Will Tabbruis and Charmeine, two star-crossed and ill-fated lovers ever be at rest? Could this mean the end of harmony for Tabbruis and Charmeine’s family?
A must read for all who have read “Charmeine” the First Novel in “The Light-Bearer Series”. “Ransom” can be a stand-alone novel also. It is action packed and thoroughly enjoyable in its own right!
My own thoughts:
Wow, I really was looking forward to this second novel, because I liked the first one big time, and this one didn’t disappoint me. I love the way Emily writes. She describes people in her book in such a way you can see them just the way she pictured it. It makes you wish they are all real and you can just book a trip to castle Charmeine to visit them all.
The first book ended with Charmeine and Tabbruis still happily in love after battling evil. And finding their family and loved ones, living all together in Dmitri’s castle, which is now named after Charmeine. (Please where can I find me a man like that?) But they also learn that they still have to battle evil and Lucifer’s minions on earth. Which they can do as long as they are united as one and hold on to the biggest power possible, Love.
This time, evil comes in the form of Lord Cromwell, a gorgeous but deadly blood-hunter and his evil bitch minion Bathsheba. And this Bathsheba isn’t a stranger for Tabbruis and Dmitri. Turns out they both knew her back in the day when she seduced them both and made them fight over her.
Queen of the light-bearers and head of her loving family Charmeine is pregnant and everyone is looking forward to the newest addition of the family, baby hunter. The castle is being remodeled to fit everyone in. Charmeine and Tabbruis are perfectly happy together, until bloodhunters show up. Turns out to be the guards of the elder council and they want Charmeine to lead them like the prophecy foretold, but they also bring bad news, Lord Cromwell escaped prison and he is also looking for Charmeine.
But the temple guards aren’t the only ones breaking in to the castle. Bathsheba has arrived and boy did she arrive! All the men are struck by her beauty. (Typical, just something for men to do, think with the wrong “head”) Because I don’t want to give away major spoilers, let’s just say things don’t go according to plan.
In the book they also find out the youngest members of the family, Athena and Percival, the children of Dmitri and Hera are also gifted with special abilities. They have foreseen the family in Disneyland! Now that’s an awesome break from all the supernatural angels and vampires. Makes them look more human so you can identify yourself better with them. And also Percival gets to meet his soulmate!
Charmeine also has a personal battle to fight, with Lord Cromwell and her love Tabbruis. She is attracted to Lord Cromwell and a big fight with Tabbruis isn’t helping in her choice. Which one, will she chose? And is Lord Cromwell really evil???
Ok, I’ll stop with the spoilers, needless to say that after a great battle, physical, as well as emotion, for all of them, good wins over evil and little baby hunter (I won’t say the name) is being baptized.
I loved it! The love, the battles, but also the insecurities, the trip to Disneyland, good versus evil. It’s epic and awesome! And it’s so hard for me to review without giving away all the awesome stuff! Ransom is an absolute must-read. I rate it 9 out of 10! Or 4.5 out of 5!
