Tamed Review

Tamed by Rebecca Zanetti
Dark Protectors Book 6.5
Published May 15, 2014
4 Fangs

"Just enough of the Realm to tide fans over while awaiting the highly anticipated Book 7, Marked."

Synopsis -

Caleb Donovan was never meant to be a prophet. At heart he's a conqueror, his appetites far more carnal than spiritual. He's not inclined to repress his passions and surrender to fate. After all, that's what cost him Lily—three centuries ago. She married another, because it was ordained. Now that he's in the same benighted calling—and forced into proximity with her—all the old desires are roaring back to life. . .

After widowhood and centuries of celibacy, Lily is eager to explore the wild side of life, except now she's vulnerable to another forced relationship, with an enemy. But this time she's determined to choose her own path. And if hot, furious Caleb comes charging to the rescue, it might just change both their destinies. . .

Love is about to start conquering. . . (Goodreads)

Review - 

This novella is a short, bittersweet pill of darkness to keep fans going wile waiting for Janie's book to come out, filled with just enough action, violence, betrayal, romance and intrigue. Though not intended for newcomers to this series, it can be read as a stand-alone as it gives the reader just enough information on the Realm to keep from leaving newbies confused, and not too much for the tried and true can to skip a page.

Lily and Caleb's story is one widely know by all fans. The two have been in love with one another for centuries; one ignoring their feelings out of a sense of duty, the other out of respect for the former. And for the two to both be prophets, they sure are blind to their own destinies. It also leaves them blind to the enemy that is even closer than the man next door. It seems that all three prophets are having visions telling them to do the same as their predecessor once told them needed to be done. Which ended in his death and Caleb becoming a very reluctant prophet himself. As the Realm Rebel it is the last he had expected, and certainly never wanted. These visions are unlike any others any of the trio has ever had, not merely suggesting, but demanding, and threatening. Which brings up the question; are they truly visions, or are they being manipulated by someone other than Fate?

The time has come for the peace talks between the Kurjans, the Vampires and the Demons. Whether everyone remains alive to make to these talks remains to be seen.

Contains blood, violence and hot sex that is definitely not of the vanilla variety. Fans hankering for a Zanetti fix should hurry and get their hands on this read. While it will not hinder from keeping up with the story-line when Marked is finally released, fans will appreciate the plot in Tamed.
