It is four years since Taylor and Brody almost lost Veris during the First Crusade. Now they know how to control time jumps, they have settled into a very nearly perfect, nearly human life, raising their daughter Marit.My Thoughts: Man, this series is rocking my socks off. This time traveling vampire menage never gets old. And now it's Brody's turn. Brody, the brooding, ex-slave musician who has a boatload of unresolved issues from his time in captivity. It's only fair that he gets his chance to work things out with the two loves of his very long life at his side.
When Brody defies Queen Tira to protect Marit, the three of them jump back three days in time to collect evidence the queen set up Brody for a drug bust in retribution. The jump sends them back to Brody’s personal nightmare: Fifth century Constantinople.
While Brody survives as a flogged slave, Taylor masquerades as the wife of an aristocrat and searches for Brody to release him. They must wait for Veris to find them before jumping home and Taylor watches each brutal chariot race, wondering if this will be Brody’s last. Brody once died in the Hippodrome and he is human this time, too…
I'm going to pause here and say that not only is the relationship between Veris, Brody, and Taylor fantastic, I love that the two guys have such *history* together. They love one another as deeply as they love Taylor. And also, the man-lovin' is pretty hot. *nods*
So. Constantinople. Brody's a slave, Veris is MIA, and Taylor has to pretend to be the wife of a wealthy dude. Brody's humanity puts him at risk and the miniscule changes that their very presence brings to his personal timeline could have dire consequences for all of them. It's nerve wracking watching them try to change nothing of importance knowing that Brody's time as a mortal is very nearly up. Seriously. Nerve wracking.
I'm especially excited that there look to be some hints dropped for potential future books. Alexander makes some fundamental changes in his way of thinking and there's a new player in town that I'd love to see more of. There's always room for more time-traveling vampire menages if you ask me.
Fantastic ending to the overall arc, hot sex in time, and the potential for more shenanigans in the future. I am pleased.
