Publication Date & Length: October 31, 2014 – 306 pgs
All his life, wizard Raphael Tarayaud has dreamed of a vampire—first as a friend, then as a lover. His search for his missing soul mate brings him to the attention of Sebastien Noyer, one of his childhood heroes. While Sebastien isn’t his soul mate, he could be the perfect partner for Raphael’s best friend Kylian Raffier.
As strange coincidences mount up, Raphael offers his research expertise to try and help Kylian and Sebastien understand what is happening to them, though the more he learns, the less he likes it. But it won’t keep him from fighting with everything he has to secure Kylian’s future.
When he finally meets Jean Bellaiche, former chef de la Cour and grieving widower, the meeting is disastrous, but Raphael can’t let it go. He doesn’t stand a chance with Jean—who could compete with the ghost of Raymond Payet?—but nothing can stop him from dreaming.
So let me start of this review by saying I really did like this book was something that did bug me.
Okay so with this book you get Sebastien who is still feeling the loss of his partner. Well he meets Kylian at the bar one night and the moment he lays eyes on him he knows there is something special about him. Well as much as I liked learning about them as a couple I thought it was too much them and not enough Jean and Raphael for me. For a book with two couples to work for me I need more then a little part at the end to believe them as a couple and while what little bit I did get from them was awesome I was honestly a disappointed I didn’t get to see more of them together.
So besides that some parts did drag for me little bit. While I liked getting to see these two vampires trying to deal with their loss and moving on I just can’t help feeling a disappointed that there was not more of Jean and Raphael. There was just something about Jean’s character from the other books in this series that grabbed me and I wanted to see him happy with his new partner more then I did get. But besides that I really loved how the author explained the spell and what happened with the souls of their previous partners. I also loved the world this author built in this series.
So all together I really liked this book!
I would definitely recommend this series!
