Hello Avid Readers,
Sometimes, when I read a book I don’t write a full review, I just write a paragraph or two to publish on Amazon and Goodreads; especially if it’s a book with thousands of reviews already. But I want to build up my blog to be THE place to go to for paranormal romance fans, so I should really post those smaller reviews on here too, right?
Montana Ash was one of the attending authors at RARE19 in London, and although it has taken me almost two months to finish reading this series, I have found a new favourite author and loved meeting her; she’s so nice. 🙂
So, on with my thoughts about…
Revolution (Elemental Paladins #6) by Montana Ash
With the battle against the chades over, and the evil at the centre of their world eliminated, balance has finally been restored to nature. Too bad the same can’t be said for their society.
Beyden is trying to support his fellow paladins as they work to restore order after the upheaval caused by the Revolution. But with his leg injured beyond repair and pain his constant companion, Beyden is struggling with his new reality. Max, the one person in the world who could possibly help him, is drowning in her own problems. So Beyden turns to someone he never thought he would need; a human.
Jasminka is used to being the odd one out. The only child of wealthy, stoic parents who demanded nothing short of perfection, she never really fit in anywhere. But being the only human in a magical society of elemental beings and modern-day knights is perhaps taking things a little too far. So why does she feel so at home? Could it be the crazy self-made family, filled with love, laughter, and strays? Or perhaps it’s the gentle giant with the pain-filled, amber eyes? Either way, as a doctor, Jasminka is determined to heal all their hurts … and just maybe, be healed in return.
Once again the story in this penultimate installment kept me hooked; I couldn’t put it down!
As I’ve said before, I’m a big fan of Montana Ash’s writing style; I love the pace she sets her plots and the balance she creates in her gripping stories between heartfelt emotion, action and humour. I love that the characters she has created in the Elemental Paladins world are complex souls that exhibit all the traits that I crave; intelligence, camaraderie, humour and a predisposition to love unconditionally even when they are damaged and flawed by their life experiences.
Revolution brought out a mix of emotions; fear, fury, yummy tingles and yes, I did bawl my eyes out (no, I won’t tell you how often or when so stop asking) but I also smiled and chuckled out loud plenty of times too, usually at the banter between the members of Max’s rather unique Order. 😉
Revolution is the sixth book in this series and centres around the romance between Bey and Jazz as well as continuing the background story threads. As expected we do see some threads neatly tied off and our questions answered satisfactorily but as there is still one more story to be told, not everything is concluded.
As with the rest of the books in this series, due to the sexual scenes, colourful vocabulary and expletives present throughout, I would recommend this book to adults who are not offended by content of this nature who love stories about kickass heroines and damaged alphas within the adult paranormal romance genre with story-lines about the bonds of true friendship, over-coming insurmountable odds and fighting for what’s right despite the costs.
Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to read my mini review. I hope I’ve sparked your interest.
Bye for now,
