Series: Elder Races #6
Author: Thea Harrison
Two opponents must confront the cause of their obsessive fury in the latest Novel of the Elder Races…As a harpy, Sentinel Aryal is accustomed to dealing with hate, but Sentinel Quentin Caeravorn manages to inspire in her a burning ire unlike anything she’s ever known. Aryal believes the new Sentinel to be a criminal, and vows to take him out as soon as the opportunity arises. But the harpy’s incessant wrath has pushed Quentin to the limit, and forces him to make a deadly vow of his own.To put an end to the conflict, Dragos, Lord of the Wyr, sends them on a reconnaissance mission to the Elven land of Numenlaur. Forced to work together, Aryal and Quentin’s mutual antagonism escalates. Each fight draws forth more passion—culminating in an explosively sexual confrontation. But when their quest reveals real danger, Aryal and Quentin must resolve their differences in ways beyond the physical, before the entire Wyr is threatened.
I wasn't sure I was going to like this book. Aryal, the protagonist, is a harpy with a difficult personality. She's very strong, independent and intense. She doesn't get along well with other people, and she hates Quentin, the new sentinel. She hates him so much that has spent the last two years trying to discover his criminal past and she vows she's going to kill him someday.
Aryal was fun in a mean way, and in this book you get to understand her personality better. She's not a bad person, but she can kick your ass very easily!
Quentin has a better personality, we met him first because he was Pia's friend and now he's a Sentinel. I didn't remember him well, he's a mixed Wyr He doesn't like Dragos, Lord of the Wyr, but he is willing to work for him for Pia's sake. But he hates Aryal, and one day he gets tired of her persecution, they start a fight and Dragos forces them to work together...or kill each other.
I didn't thougth they were going to work together, both of them are very controlling, but wow, they were explosive! Forget about cute, they start a fight and end up making out on the floor and more. Their relationship starts intense like their personalities, but after a while, they start to accept each other and be excited by each other controlling nature.
In the end they were perfect for each other, and I really enjoyed their book. They do have their sweet moments, and I even shed a tear at the end, it was very emotional. Kinked is definitely another great book from the Elder Races by Thea Harrison!
