Review: Crimson Dahlia by Abigail Owen

Book #3 of the Svatura Series

When Lila Jenner leaves her family and friends to start a new life for herself, Ramsey Pierce lets her go. Determined that the fire raging inside him will never harm her, he denies the magical bond that could be theirs alone.

When an old enemy resurfaces and Lila suddenly disappears, Ramsey realizes that he'll do anything to win her back and keep her safe beside him. But Maddox, driven by a centuries-old quest for revenge, is stronger than they ever imagined. And Lila could be the key to his ultimate power.

Friends and enemies must band together against this shared threat if any of them are to survive. Even then, they may all discover too late that one dragon is not always enough...

Don't miss BLUE VIOLET & HYACINTH - Books #1 and #2 of the Svatura Series!!!!

BLACK ORCHID - the final book of the Svatura Series - coming February 2014!

I was really looking forward to this book. I was so excited when the author contacted me asking if I wanted to review it. I was so ecstatic to get to learn more about Ramsey. He has always been the dark and brooding mysterious one. Lila is charming and friendly.

This book is about Svatura, which are people who live a very long time and have semi-unique special powers. The Vyusher are people that have powers and can change into wolves. These two people have banded together to fight Maddox, who is trying to throw this whole world off balance for his own means. 

I liked Ramsey immediately. He is a guy who know what he wants, and will do anything to find Lila and keep her safe. This book starts off with Lila missing and Ramsey is trying to desperately find her. Meanwhile, Lila is afraid for her life down in a dungeon. She was captured with the Louisiana clan that she was traveling around the world with. Maddox wants to use Lila for an evil purpose. I loved watching their relationship grow into something more. Even though there is soul mates in this book. They aren't instantly together and everything is happy. They have to work on a bond and grow together as a couple.

I loved that I still got to travel around in different people's heads, and play catch up with people's lives. If your a Nate fan, you are definitely going to be sad during this book. I pretty much hated him during this entire book...okay..okay..fine..severely disliked him in this book.

Overall, this book was exciting and an interesting read. It is definitely a must read, so check it out!!!
