Storm's Heart by Thea Harrison

He’s a wyr warrior, a god of storms. She’s the heir to the Dark Fae throne. But desire will bring both to their knees in this all-new Novel of the Elder Races.

During the rule of her murderous Dark Fae uncle, Thistle “Tricks” Periwinkle found sanctuary among the wyr in New York. Her ethereal beauty and sparkling personality won the hearts of the public, but after her uncle’s death, there are those who don’t want to see her ascend to the throne…

Able to wield thunder and lightning, wyr sentinel Tiago Black Eagle has ruled the skies for centuries. His massive build and thunderous power make him one of the wyr’s best weapons. And he’s sent to protect Tricks when she’s almost assassinated in Chicago.

Soon, both Tiago and Tricks will fall prey to the stormy hunger that engulfs them—a passion that will shake the very foundation of all the worlds…

Hmmm, I'm not sure what I want to say about Storm's Heart that would be unique. Like Dragon Bound, Storm's Heart has great characters and great action, with an added dose of mystery thrown in. When you start realizing that the hero is a kick ass alpha male with shapeshifting abilities, what's not to like?!


Harrison does a wonderful job building the relationship between Tiago and Tricks. Even though it's obvious to the reader where all their sparks are leading, the fact that the two of them take a little longer doesn't seem forced. It's a natural progression of how long they've known each other, especially considering how little time they'd spent together before the actions in the book. 

I'd only wish that the ending had been stretched out a little more. Murderous Fae mysteries, when done well, are a joy to read and while everything made sense I think people's motivations could have been explored a bit more with some additional pages.

The book is really fantastic and it's gearing up to be a wonderful series - don't miss out!

Overall Feeling - Thumbs up.
