I liked how the point of view kept changing between the hero and heroine, kept it interesting and you got to enjoy both characters that way.
Blurb Exiled rouge shape shifter Kerr Vik once saw being transported to Gunnagar as a fresh start Until the one person he most regretted leaving behind captivating witch Heather Monroe stumbles through the portaland finds herself right in the middle of a witch hunt Heather has courageously come to Gunngar to redeem herself But Kerr knows that if she braves it aloneshe will die He must somehow send her back through the portal And it s not long before a collision of truth, love and duty complicates Kerr s mission by forcing him to choose sides should he save this forbidden love or protect his honour End BlurbI found I liked that Kerr Vik was a good guy and that Heather was at one time the bad guy or girl.
The misunderstood villians of Guardian s Keep, get their own chance at love and redemption in Devoti s fourth full length entry in her Unbound series also Unbound, Wild Hunt, Captured Dark Crusade pairs the exiled rogue shapeshifting Garm Kerr Vik with the reformed formerly selfish power grasping traitorous apprentice witch Heather, as they are dropped through a portal into a world cut off from the rest of the nine worlds a world where it s death to be a witch As Kerr and Heather reconnect the sensual sparks fly Soon Heather is getting her wish for power but runs the risk of losing her self to a powerful evil witch in the process and Kerr is torn between saving Kelly or saving the other 50 garm who followed him into exhile but who are now imprisoned with no hope for escape Dark Crusade has less of the elements of the Norse myth than the first book, but Devoti expands her universe to include light and dark elves and opens the door to the possiblity of exploring other worlds beyond the portals in the first few books The best part of Devoti s books for me are her heros, this time we are back to the Garm, the sexy noble shapeshifters who have a deep need to have something to protect Kelly s plight awakens Kerr s protective instincts and awakens in Heather the possibility of actually trusting another person enough that it makes her connection with Kerr a powerful one Also it helped that Heather, didn t drive me insane like Devoti s last witch heroine Kelly, it is hard to get past a irritating heroine Along with opening up the possiblity for taking her series to other worlds, Devoti sets another garm apart from the crowd, along with another unusual cool and fiery ally, and gives them both a motive for hunting down the villianess of this book revenge and doing a great job of setting up for the next episode in the process, can t wait.
Lori Devoto is amazingly gifted This gal s got talent like nobody s business but mine yours Dark Crusade is the Fourth in Devoti s Unbound series held me absolutely spellbound I was living Heather s life was mesmerized by the wickedly delicious Kerr Kerr definitely appeared three dimensional thanks to Devoti s flawless characterization Brava, Ms Devoti Heather Moore is a witch who was exiled from the human world to Gunngar for her role in helping to overthrow the Garm Council She must count on Kerr, a garm wolf shapeshifter for protection from a malicious elf named Marina who wants all witches dead Did I mention that the scrumptious Kerr is a wolf shapeshifter Whistle I am just lovin the call of the wild all of nature s beauty Ha ha.
Devoti s alternate world is scintillatingly vibrant teeming w pulse pounding excitement Devoti created an unscrupulous cast of characters that will leave you wanting to take them on yourself She painted them effortlessly w a cimmerian sinister veneer Now, let me say the sexual tension is beyond sizzling Shameless Dark Crusade is definitely a captivating read for packed in under 300 pages so, my suggestion Grab the entire Unbound series
Book 4 in the Unbound series, good read I thought the setting was interesting Gunngar is world of exiles made up of bits and pieces of other worlds and times depending on what the residents brought with them Example the innkeeper lights the inn with candles, that he lights with a butane lighter The main characters were introduced in earlier books and new ones are brought on board as well The plot was fast paced and enjoyable The series has done a good job of making each book be individual while still progressing through the story arc.
Unbound series reading them in order will increase your enjoyment.

Lori Devoti knows how to do twists and turns Everytime, I thought I was about to get a question answered something new popped up At times I wanted to throw the book at the wall I wanted answers , but instead kept reading Nope, the story was to good to skip pages to the end Definitely, going to re read.
This book was okay.
