TRISTAN'S ESCAPE is a Novella from the Belador paranormal series from New York Times bestseller Dianna Love.
Holidays rate just above Tristan having his fingernails ripped off. He was a fool once over a woman, a human no less, and that little moment of insanity got him imprisoned for four long years. He's never had someone special to share s with and doubts he ever will, but December does matter to the other half-blood-Belador Alterants stuck alongside him on Treoir Island. To help his friends, Tristan has been secretly teleporting them to Atlanta for short visits. Sure, the Belador goddess warned him not to teleport in and out of Treoir's hidden realm without her permission, but she ranks below holidays for Tristan. Screw her. His secret trips are going great until Elaine "Mac" Mackenzie, the five-foot-six, red-haired genius Tristan vowed to pay back for the four years he lost, steps between Tristan and a powerful sorcerer with a deadly agenda. If Tristan exposes his preternatural abilities in the human world, he'll forfeit his freedom forever.
Saving her may destroy his world, but once he has Mac back in his arms, no one else is going to touch her.
Immortals fear little … except a secret in the wrong hands.
While searching for a way to save Brina of Treoir's failing memories, Tzader Burke discovers someone who can help her if Tzader is willing to sneak into the heart of his enemy's stronghold—TÅμr Medb. He'll do anything to protect the woman he loves from becoming a mindless empty shell, but his decision could be the catalyst for an apocalyptic war. The deeper he digs for the truth, the more lies he uncovers that shake the very foundation of being a Belador and the future of his clan.
Tzader's ready to execute his mission. Alone. But the minute his best friends Quinn and Evalle, plus her Skinwalker mate Storm, find out about his suicidal plan they organize a black ops team around him. While battling on every front, one secret surfaces that two immortal powers have spent thousands of years keeping buried. Tzader and his team have no choice but to fight for what they believe in, because the world as they know it is never going to be the same again.
Yeah, it was utterly fantastic to read these books! I loved being in this world again, and it was so great to read these books so soon after reading Witchlock, the details were more readily accessible to my mind to remember, yeah!
We learned more about Tristan, and why he was captured and in that prison in South America when Evalle meets him. And yeah, it's kinda sad, that they both thought the other betrayed them, basically, but they were both wrong! But I'm wondering what's going on with her family, and I want to see more of that!
Rogue Belador took the threads of the previous books, and wove them closer together, so it was almost like Rise of the Gryphon, but not quite there. So yeah, that was really great to read, all these things that have been happening, finally starting to come together! This was Brinda and Tzader's book, and it was so great to watch them finally get their happy ending!
This book marked a significant change for the series. The coalition is falling apart, and the war that has been going on for thousands of years is heating up again. Oh, and Macha is proven to be false, all those times that she didn't help, or made things worse, they finally strip the excuses away and see her for what she really is, and that is looking out for herself, along with a bunch of lies. But now she's gone, at least for now, so yeah, finally!
Oh, and some other things happened, like the bad guy after Lanna comes and is a bit of a baddy, like those two in the previous book, but is stopped in this book, pretty easily by one of the characters, so yeah, that was another great end to that part of the story, though there's still much to learn about Lanna!
With the Dragon King and stuff, and that ending, the wait for January for the next book is going to be pure evil! I need more!
