Liliana is nothing like her father, the Blood Sorcerer who’d cursed Micah. Trivia About Lord of the Abyss Hunger won and it darted to grab the bread from her naluni. I think it could be argued that both hero and heroine have elements of both.
To save their children, the queen scattered them to safety and the king filled them with vengeance. I loved the heroine, but then again, I tend to like sympathetic heroines who are sweet and not huge egotistical beauty queens. The difference here is that whereas a child may act selfishly at times, it’s normally because he doesn’t know any better—there are no ill intentions.
Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. It was a small, quivering thing, its bones showing through its skin. On the other hand, an asshole acts selfishly despite being aware of his actions. I loved that Singh takes the best elements of Beauty and the Beast, like the isolation, the curse, and the gradual blossoming of trust and attraction transcending looks, and leaves out what feels dated or rarely works salvation by beautiful innocence, a sweet heroine out of her weight class with a grim and tortured hero.
But through it all, he carves out his own life, and has two friends. What’d happened if the daughter of a cruel Blood Sorcerer falls in love with a man whose parants is killed by her own father?
Lord of the Abyss
The romance was wonderful. This book is fabulous! Singh crafts abyzs stunning visualization of The Guardian of the Abyss — black armor that covers him from neck to ankle, gauntlet arm with sharp talons, blonde hair with winter-green eyes.
Although it’s the 4rth book in a series, I had absolutely no problem understanding the world building or the dynamics between the characters. Sign Up for Harlequin News.
We see only Micah and Lily’s scene, battling the Blood Sorcerer. What I loved nallini about her is her gentleness. For a dungeon, she thought drowsily as her body began to shut down, this place was not so terrible. It was the first thought Liliana had as she lay weak and drained across the black marble of the floor, her face reflected in its polished surface.
Both tortured by pasts very different from one another are yet so very much alike in their single mindedness and honor, and they will do the right thing regardless of the cost to themselves. Now a man grown, the darkness of the Abyss is all he knows.
Lord of the Abyss by Nalini Singh — All About Romance
The fourth and youngest of the Elden royals, Micah, was cast into the Abyss, where he became the Lord responsible for ensuring that the most evil souls go there and stay there.
I really liked the brave Lily, who wins her way out of the dungeon with the abyss of palatable meals, to earn Micah’s trust and help him to start to remember himself by giving him ‘tastes’ of his childhood.
Gathering her strength, she crawled to where Bard had rattled what sounded like a metal bucket. And after skimming the first ten pages of the third book, I got bored out of my wits and shelved it. I did feel that the ending was a little bit rushed. Goodreads is the world’s largest site for readers with over 50 million reviews.
Desert Isle Keeper
Micah will tell you straight out what he wants, in bed or out of it, without being crude or disrespectful. And then she meets Micah. I’m not a huge fan of the hot guy loving the ugly duckling kind of stories. There is an honesty to Micah that I think is rare—growing up as he did, he has never had reason to lie, and so he never learned to do it. Her hands touched it after what seemed like hours, and she felt her way carefully up its side until she could dip her fingers within. But first she has to brave his dark, dangerous lair and help him remember.
I should have stopped listening and switched to reading once I realized the narration wasn’t working for me. Nalini Singh is an author who always delivers something special. I hope you enjoy the final parts in the Royal House of Shadows series, and that you fall in love with wild, dangerous and beautiful Micah alongside his Lily.
In fact, in this relationship, I would say that Lily holds the most power. I absolutely loved it. The majority of the book is the building of Micah and Liliana. She could feel eyes on her, hundreds of them. As the youngest child of the King and Queen of Elden, Micah lost not only his family, but his childhood the night the Blood Sorcerer attacked. Recommended for fans of plain, abused heroines who use their inner strength to confront their oppressors, of amnesiac alpha heroes whose loyalty, devotion, and honor lead them on to great things, and of beautiful romances sprinkled with a bit of heat.
I didn’t read the first 3, but the last one was really really good. True, I didn’t like the first 2 books in the series much, but still. Cruelty was no stranger to her, not after having grown up with the Blood Sorcerer for a father.
Relief had her smiling in tremulous hope.
Lord of the Abyss – Nalini Singh :: NYT bestselling author
Her throat suddenly felt abysd if it was lined with broken glass. I read it in one sitting! Lilliana is afraid to believe that such a beautiful, sensual, powerful man would want her when he can have his pick between much lovelier lasses than herself.
November 15, Paperback Publisher: Watching her defrost him by unlocking his memories especially through food is enjoyable.
