Another Great Book From Laura Kaye!
I am a huge fan of Laura Kaye's, but had yet to read any of her paranormal books. I was very excited to have the opportunity to read South of Surrender, and I will confess that I haven't read the first two books in the series, though I own them. I think having read North of Need and West of Want would have made the experience even better, and knowing the characters like I do now, I am very anxious to go back and read them. But I can say, for me, that Kaye did such a great job of giving the back story on the series without info-dumping, and I wasn't lost reading South of Surrender.
South of Surrender was a treat! I have always loved mythology and many of the various re-tellings, but I can say that I have not come across a re-telling like this. Not only do you have standard gods and goddesses, but what I loved was the Anemoi. You have the Cardinal: North, South, East, and West; the Ordinal, such as: Southwest, Southeast, etc.; and the Inter-Ordinal Anemoi, who are in charge of the half-winds like North-Northwest. (I took this info from the book to help explain.) These gods are in charge of seasons and the cause of the weather patterns. I loved this aspect of the story and found it really inventive and cool.
Chrysander "Chrys" Notos is the god of Summer. He thrives on heat and growth and life. I kind of expected Chrys to be this really nice guy, which is weird because he's a god/Element. Chrys was nice, essentially, but he was really complicated, with a long and troubled backstory. He's a little harsh, down to business, and a really dominant guy. He's set on bringing his brother safely to justice, no easy task, and this leads him crashing into Laney Summerlyn's life.
Laney Summerlyn was such an endearing heroine. She has a horse farm in Virginia, and leads a very quiet and sheltered life, due to a degenerative eye disease. When Chrys crashes into her barn, and life, Laney gets the chance to help him, get to him, and fall in love. I loved that she forged ahead despite her condition and the fact that Chrys is a god in the midst of an epic battle. The relationship between the two was romantic, complicated, and heated. The two seem to have impossible odds against them, but you just know love will overcome all.
South of Surrender is another great book from Laura Kaye. With her books, you always know that you will get fabulous characters, an exciting story, and super hot romance. This book is no exception. Having read it, I am dying to read the first two, and the fourth books in the Hearts of the Anemoi series. If you're looking for a great Paranormal Romance series, this is it. by Andrea Thompson
