Review: Lord's Fall by Thea Harrison

Lord's Fall (Elder Races #5) by Thea Harrison
Synopsis (Goodreads):
Before she met Dragos, half-human/half-Wyr Pia Giovanni was alone and on the run. Now she’s mated, pregnant and heading south to repair the Wyrs’ frayed relationship with the Elves. Being separated from Dragos is painful, but for the good of the Wyr demesne they need to figure out how to be partners—in more places than just the bedroom.

In New York to preside over the Sentinel Games, Dragos is worried about his mate, but knows that finding two replacement sentinels is essential to show the rest of the Elder Races just how strong and brutal the Wyr demesne can be. But as the Games heat up, Pia’s negotiations with the Elves take a turn for the dangerous, straining her bond with Dragos and threatening everything they hold dear…
My Thoughts: I almost don't know where to start here. Okay. Wait. I do know where to start... I really, really, really loved this book. Period. Full stop. For the record, Dragon Bound and Oracle's Moon are my two favorites of the series and I think of them as total comfort reads. Having a crappy week? That's okay, Pia and Dragos will remind you that crappy weeks can turn into badass awesomeness faster than a bloodthirsty dragon can rend his enemy in two. Bad day? Khalil can achieve pancakes and be scary powerful. And, you know, do that things with his hands. *swoon* Anyway. I'm totally adding Lord's Fall to my comfort reads list now because it absolutely hit the spot as far as romances went. *makes flaily hands all around*

The thing that's killing me here is that a lot of the little things I loved are issues I hoped would be addressed from previous books AND I CAN'T TALK ABOUT THEM BECAUSE I DON'T WANT TO BE ALL SPOILERY. *dies* Needless to say, I am pleased pleased pleased to see that we got resolution on these issues and I... no, I can say no more.

Shoot. This is a hard review to write.

Okay. Dragos and Pia. Those two crazy kids are one of my all-time favorite couples. I love that Dragos is so honest about himself and will admit when he doesn't know how to proceed. Let's face it, the guy is used to getting his way. He's tough, temperamental, and he has some very clear opinions on certain matters. Yet... he's willing to bend for Pia. For her part, Pia has to figure out how to be the partner of one of the biggest, baddest predators on the planet. It's not easy. There is no roadmap telling her how to proceed and she and Dragos sometimes have a vastly different way of looking at things.

And the two of them WORK. OMG! They work. They have steam and sparks and they are so freaking fabulous together!

Right. So, I loved the psychos. I loved that we got to see more about the prophecy that Grace spoke in book 4. I loved... all sorts of things. And the ending.. the ending the ending the ending... was perfect. I am so ready for more set in this world. *flails* Seriously, book 6 can't come soon enough.
