Stygian’s Honor by Lora Leigh


Breeds, Book 27

Synopsis: Window Rock, Arizona, is the last known location of Honor Roberts, who vanished when she was just thirteen. It was her only sanctuary from the Breed research that would surely have ended in her death—one such insidious experiment should, indeed, have killed her. That she lived is both a miracle—and a great mystery.

Stygian’s mission is to find Honor Roberts, no matter the cost. Now, with the help of Liza Johnson, assistant to the chief of the Navajo Nation, he is closer than ever to his goal. But will the discovery of Honor Roberts mean the destruction of the mating heat that has developed between Stygian and Liza?

Review: I didn’t know the Breeds series before starting this book and I was a little afraid to be completely lost with this 27th volume. Besides, I’m quite impressed by this number, it is rare to find a long paranormal romance series (and I haven’t even read a paranormal romance series or something else that has reached a high number like this one). On the contrary, I didn’t have any problems with the story or for understanding the events and the characters.
Liza is a young woman who has never asked anything to anyone and who loves her independence and freedom more than anything. But when one day she is attacked by some persons she doesn’t know about, the Breeds assign Stygian to protect her, something that she doesn’t like at all. But all this is only the beginning of something much bigger. Therefore, Jonas, the head of Breeds, tries to force our heroine to give him the answers to his problem, although she does not even know what he’s talking about. Indeed he is looking for two young women to save his sick daughter, and he is convinced that Liza has the power to help them. In addition to that, an intense bond is forming between Liza and Stygian who believes that she is his soul mate. The fact is that she doesn’t want to stay with him doesn’t matter and he is determined to make her change her mind by all means. Our heroine will have to face many problems and it will be very hard for her to evolve throughout the novel. She learned many secrets related to her past and about who she is that will turn her life upside down.
 
I enjoyed the story and the plot of this book. It was very interesting to see with Liza what was happening, because even if you already know some parts of the truth, many issues are unclear. However, I have also some negative points about my read … I had a lot problems with the language that the author uses, which is often a little too vulgar for me. I can understand that our couple only thinks about jumping on each other, but I would still have prefered it a little softer and I admit that after a while I just jumped the intimate passages of our two protagonists as we didn’t need them for the story. I was also surprised by the ending, which for me is not really an « end ». I don’t know how the other volumes were made, so I do not really know if the author continues her story in each volume, but despite Liza understands the truth, there is no real end to the story and we are left to wait for the next volume.

So I’ve had good and not so good things about this book, but it was still an enjoyable read and our two heroes are very interesting to discover. Liza is a character far more complex than we might have been expected to discover.

  1. I never could do that, start with the last book instead of the first. I am also not attracted to this series, I think I read a short story a long time ago. Way too much sex for me.
