one night Delilah is in mortal danger and a man who’s otherworldly
strong and supernaturally fast saves her. Delilah is then cast into a
world where fiction comes to life in the form of Abel, her destined
mate, a vampire/werewolf hybrid who claims her at first breath as his.
Abel knows the danger isn’t done. He’s dreamed for centuries that his
mate will perish and he will stop at nothing to keep her safe.
Delilah, she’s not only coping with fantasy come to life, but a
mingling of very different families. Not to mention, she has on her
hands a man who doesn’t understand his true nature and has lived his
long life thinking he’s a monster.
Abel and Delilah together
fills the hole that has been clawing at them for decades. But finally
finding each other, it also tips their destinies as the last of The
Three. They must unite with the other destined lovers, who with Abel and
Delilah, are fated to save the world.
Or die trying.
really great book with really great characters and a great plot, I read one of her
books. Needless to say I’ve been waiting
with baited breath for this installment of the Three series, and boy was I so
and when she is something clicks into place for them both. Abel is a vampire/werewolf hybrid (oh yes)
and he recognizes Delilah as his mate.
This is a great thing for them both, as they both feel something has
been missing from their lives, but it also means that they are both in
danger. As Abel guides Delilah into a
world she thought only existed in fairy tales, Delilah also helps Abel to
understand his true nature. When they
come together with the other destined lovers from the series, they must try to
save the world, even if it costs them their own lives.
that is this book. I just recently began
reading this series in preparation for this book, as I had never read any of
KA’s paranormal romance before. But I
figured I couldn’t go wrong with a KA book, and I was totally right on. I absolutely love the heroes of her stories. They are strong and oh so deliciously alpha,
but every single one of them lives and dies for their true love. She alone has the key to their heart and
brings out their soft side, and Abel is no exception. He is fierce, but also loves Delilah
fiercely. He does not take for granted
the gift that is their love. I am
continually blown away by how she balances the alpha aspects of a hero with the
lover aspects. Many authors fail
horribly at this balance, but she manages to make it perfect every single
time. I have decided that if Heaven does
exist, I hope it’s a place where all the heroes of KA’s books reside. I want to go there.
engaged and interested. It had a great pace and there were several parts that
kept me on the edge of my seat. And it
is nicely balanced in the heat department too.
Vampire/Werewolf hybrid? Oh hell
Read it! 5 stars.
so without rereading the previous two books in the series. While I remembered
much of what occurred in Until the Sun
Falls from the Sky and With
Everything I Am, it was the details regarding the series’ Immortal War
storyline that escaped my memory. So with much aggrievement (yeah, because it’s
such a hardship to read a KA book…LMAO), I went back and reread books one and
two and am so glad I did – and not just because it’s been a few months since I
treated myself to her writing, but because there was so much that occurred that
I had forgotten.
writes characters that feel real to me regardless of the genre of the book.
Like the previous books in The Three series, Wild and Free features a paranormal hero, Abel, and a human
heroine, Delilah. Despite it being a paranormal romance, she manages to give
their tale a decidedly contemporary feel such that I suspect non-paranormal
romance readers would find themselves swept up into the story. Taking all of
that into consideration, KA managed to take Wild
and Free one step further with both the paranormal AND the contemporary
genres by making Abel a vampire werewolf hybrid and Delilah a biker bitch. And
just like the previous couples, Delilah is the perfect mate for Abel because
her being raised in the life meant that she accepted him as he was and had an
innate understanding of Abel’s alpha male tendencies. This is not to say that
her understanding and acceptance of Abel’s nature meant that everything was
smooth sailing in their relationship. Not at all. Like all KA heroines, Delilah
is sassy, independent, and not scared of her man so she has no problem going
toe-to-toe with him when she needs to. And she does. This translates into some
serious chemistry (above and beyond that which comes with paranormal beings)
and some freaking hot sex scenes. But most importantly, a beautiful love story.
is an excellent conclusion to The Three series. I really enjoyed the way in
which Ms. Ashley expanded the conflict between the Immortals, adding other
Immortals to the series to demonstrate the breadth of the conflict but doing it
in such a way that it didn’t feel contrived or forced, but rather enriched the
story. Due to the conflict, fans of the series are reunited with Lucien and
Leah, Callum and Sonia, and other characters from the previous books and this
made for a grand reunion in spite of the circumstances. Even knowing that the
couple in all of KA’s books get their happily ever after didn’t keep me from
crying when things looked bleak – as I did several times during this book. For
me, a KA book is a cathartic read because her stories make me laugh and cry,
they break my heart and make me fall in love, and they always leave me feeling
like I’ve spent hours with friends. As I expected, I absolutely loved Wild and Free and have added it to my
head off and I have. I’m a monster.”
