    This one was pretty boring For one thing they all seem to be variations of the same story One DuCaine sibling meets half Fae hybrid and they're instantly super attracted to each other Then they spend the first part of the book fighting that attraction then they have at it for the next portion of the book all while denying they feel anything but desire for each other then they argue and the DuCaine sibling temporarily hates the Fae hybrid but then they realize they're in love with said hybrid and forgive them especially when they find out the hybrid had a good reason for whatever grievance they caused Insert the various names and you get the main story of each bookAside from that nothing really happened until the end and then well it ended It was like one long prologue for the next book The first book is still my favourite in the series I didn't really like Saskia to be honest I found her annoying kind of childish I do want to know what happens next though Despite the repetitiveness of the books the overarching political plot is interesting and I'm interested to see how the series ends Full review

    Review originally posted on my blog A Book ObsessionThe fragile peace between the different races is held by a treaty one that must be renegotiated every five years Without it the Bloods Beast Kind Fae and humans would stay locked in a brutal war that would cost untold deaths Saskia DuCaine inherited the same fierce need to help others that her older brothers have However unlike her brothers she has been kept sheltered and not allowed to place herself in danger But with the negotiations coming right around the corner Saskia is determined not to stay on the sidelines any longer and will do anything to ensure her place Fen on the other hand wants nothing to do with the negotiations but his ability to see the future is a crucial advantage the humans need Only problem is that his visions are impossible to control and cause him debilitating pain But through a mysterious twist of fate Saskia's touch blocks his visions and gives him a respite from the misery The two of them will have to learn to work together and fast as something is brewing on the horizon and it doesn't look good for the humansThe previous two book in this series have been very strong in both romance and the currentoverall series plot However this time around in IRON KIN while the plots were still very strong I felt the romance to be lacking Well perhaps lacking isn't uite the word It's just that I don't feel like it was developed to its full potential In fact I was engrossed with the early build up and sexual tension than I was with the actual romance once things started to progress In all honesty I felt incredibly let down by all of it I understand that there was a whole lot going on around them so there wasn't a whole lot of room for sexy interludes But in the same token in order for me to really believe in a relationship and get the full feeling from it I just need a little actual involvement I felt like I was being told about their love rather than getting to actually feel it along with them It was like all of the good middle stuff was glossed over and the reader was just supposed to fill in the blanks of Saskia and Fen's relationshipThere was a whole lot going on at once in IRON KIN so much so that it did become a little overwhelming at times Especially since none of the multiple plot threads were really settled by the end I have appreciated the way this series has a strong overall arc as that helps to really tie books together despite the character focus rotation However I feel that this time around the focus was too strongly placed on the overall plot arc rather than any current one It just made me feel like there was a lack of forward momentum Don't get me wrong plenty happened in IRON KIN but nothing was uite settled so it just didn't give me the sense of satisfaction I would like That being said I think the next book will be the last in the series so perhaps everything was left so open in order to prepare for the final showdown Since this series has been a pretty good blend of paranormal romanceurban fantasy in the previous books the lessor romantic development this time around did disappoint me but then again I am a very romance driven person Even so it would have been a bit easier to overlook if the multiple plot threads had of come together a bit solidly Don't get me wrong I still enjoyed IRON KIN in fact with the way things ended I am rather anxious to get my hands on the next installment to see what happens next

    Brought to you by OBS reviewer HeidiBeware of possible SpoilersFen is a mutt of sorts a half breed part Fae and part Beast Kind but neither race will claim him being the abomination that he is But Fen has the sight he is overwhelmed with visions but doesn’t know how to control them and the pain they bring him and with nobody to teach him how to handle them he chooses to bind his wrist in iron and to drown himself in alcohol but now even that isn’t enough to stop the visions completely And with the Treaty Negotiations fast approaching the different races are scrambling to gather any advantage they can acuire and suddenly Fen and his visions are a hot commodity To bad he wants nothing to do with the negotiations knowing that something bad is going to happen he just isn’t sure whatBut when Fen takes his ‘sister’ to the DuCaine Treaty Ball he meets the lovely Saskia The two are drawn to each other for reasons unknown to them But he knows he has to stay away from her once he realizes she’s a DuCaine not wanting to invoke the wrath of her brothers Guy and Simon But staying away becomes impossible once he discovers that Saskia can take away his visions and the body wracking pain they cause with a simple touch And she uses that to strike a deal with Fen to get herself invited to the negotiations despite her brothers’ protestsBut when hell breaks loose at the negotiations who will be left standing?Don’t be put off by my rating of this book I think it has a lot of potential I absolutely loved the budding relationship between Fen and Saskia I especially loved Fen What can I say I love the drunken playboy“If you’re all grown up as you insist then you’re old enough to recognize heat between a man and a woman And it’s there between us I’m not a saint Saskia I’m not one of your respectful human boys If you ask me I’m not going to be a gentleman”“Sainted bloody earth” She’d finally found her tongue Her cheeks still blushed pink but her eyes were furious “How is that no woman has killed you before now?”One of my favorite parts was when their secret was discovered and the aftermath it caused But unfortunately I just didn’t care much about the other things that were going on around them I found the preparations for the negotiations to be boring and the pomp and circumstance of the proceedings to be likewise But yet I kept expecting that to change and for something to happen to completely suck me in but it just didn’tLike I previously stated I loved the romance aspect in this book as Scott definitely nailed it But I found Fen and Saskia’s reunion to be a bit lackluster But above all I found the ending to have been the biggest disappointment of all I was still waiting for that overwhelming mushy romantic ending and it just never came I was also expecting some big climatic ending with the clash of the races but instead we were left waiting When I was done reading I was left asking ’really? That’s it?’ I was just expecting But I appreciate that this series does have potential and I’m definitely planning to see what happens in the next installmenthttpopenbooksocietycomarticleir

    35 starsThere is something about this Half Light City series Each book I pick up I begin with doubts and by 50 pages in I'm hooked I love that each book also keeps within a story arc They continue what is happening in the city focusing on new charactersI really liked Saskia and Fen I did find I liked Fen better than Saskia even though he was an idiot I don't know Saskia was great for her strength but it annoyed me how her opinion of Fen seemed to change so swiftlyI did feel a bit annoyed about how swiftly the book ended I feel there needed to be another coulple of chapters to resolve it properly but it just didn't happen I don't know It didn't feel too rushed or anything it just ended a bit abruptly I need to invest in the final book at least

    I bought this book in an airport as I always need a book when I get on a plane and I didn't realise until I started reading that there were books in this series that probably should have been read first For that reason I was ready to give my critiue of this book a bit of leeway but Scott gave enough information about the world and previous characters throughout that that wasn't a problemWhat was a problem were a few main things that simply cannot be ignored1 I felt ZERO chemistry between the hero and heroine And what a shame because I enjoyed their characters as individuals I really did but aside from the moment they met where there was an obvious attraction on both sides I never felt their attraction for each other again The author did a lot of telling the reader from either characters point of view that they liked or were attracted or whatever to the other but not nearly enough showing to make me feel it and believe it Additionally what brings them together view spoilerSaskia's ability to make Fen's vision and therefore pain away hide spoiler

  6. Rachel Rachel says:

    It's odd to me this book based on the name and the cover is Saskia's story but she really didn't have much to do it in Fen moved the story along but she was justthere The end of the book was abrupt and their relationship felt unresolved not something unexpected for this genre except that so far each book has been about a different couple

  7. Jane H Jane H says:

    Slightly frustrated that my library has none of the other books in this series Each book is about a different set of characters which helps yet it is clearly a continuing storyline where I feel like I missed some minor background information and don’t truly get to know the end The book doesn’t uite end in a cliffhanger but there it’s obvious there’s still to happen

  8. Polly Polly says:

    This was my favorite of the series to date Fen was a perfect hero and Saskia was as strong a person as her brothers We learned a little about the Fae which was enjoyable I will be reading the next book right away

  9. Andrew Rubins Andrew Rubins says:

    Another good oneI was afraid it would be the same story rehashed a third time but this took us into the fae land and extended the story A really good read that kept me enthralled till the ending Can’t wait to read the 4th in the series
