Max's arrival into Cali's world has sparked both hope and controversy for their society as a whole. Change is inevitable. For Cali, Max's unexpected appearance is a blessing, as she is finally free to be herself; a knight, a woman ... a lover. Her easy-going, slightly cynical facade hides a scarred woman who yearns to be accepted. But when Cali meets a sexy, intriguing stranger for a single night of passion, she never could have predicted the consequences. For her mysterious stranger hides a dark secret and could be the key to solving one of society's most shameful mysteries.
Once one of the most noble and famous members of warden society, Dex's fall from grace decades ago has left its mark on the once proud warrior. Years of torture and self-imposed exile have left him with no friends, no family, and a menacing predator haunting his every step. One night of spontaneous desire with the woman of his dreams leads to his possible redemption ... but also to his possible death. Will old loyalties and new hopes be enough to save him? Or is his soul lost forever?

Montana Ash is an attending author at RARE19 in London, which is why I sought out her books in the first place. I can’t wait to meet her in person at the weekend. 🙂
I only write full detailed reviews for the books I receive from authors, publishers and PR organiser (ARCs). The rest of my book reviews are in a mini format like this.
So, what did I think about Chade?
As this is the only series that I’ve read by Montana Ash, I’m still feeling like a new fan. However, I thank my friend Nikki who brought Ms Ash’s writing to my attention.
Once again the story in this book just blew me away! I devoured it. I can say, with hand on heart, that I love Ms Ash’s writing style. The pace she sets for her story and the balance she creates in her gripping plot-lines. The characters she has created for this series are complex souls that exhibit all the traits that I crave; intelligence, camaraderie, humour and a predisposition to extoll soul deep love. This story brought out a myriad of emotions; fear, fury, yummy tingles and yes, I did blubber like a baby at times too (I won’t tell you how often or when) but I also chuckled out loud plenty of times too at the banter.
Chade is the third booking this series and focuses on the relationship between one of Max’s Paladins, Cali and a chade Max has eloquently named Dax. If you’ve read any of my reviews before, you will know that I enjoy a story more when the female main character is intelligent, resilient, resourceful, self-reliant and has plenty of gumption. Oh goodness me, Cali is an amazing female character she definitely ticked all my boxes from the very first moment she was introduced back in book 1 – Warden – and she also has that great sense of humour, sarkiness and innate sense of right and wrong that seems to be present in Ms Ash’s Elemental Paladins. Well the ones on the right side of Max anyway. 😉
Chade is an awesome book which is why I’ve rated it 5 stars. I’m happy to say that it didn’t end with the usual mid scene cut-off like I felt the previous books did. Yes there is a major hook to tempt you into continuing with the series but it isn’t an imminently perilous life-or-death situation. I’ve enjoyed Chade and the previous books so much that I have already bought the rest of this amazing series.
This book has sexual scenes, violence, colourful vocabulary and expletives throughout the story. Therefore, I’d only recommend it to adults who are not offended by content of this sort.
I’d recommend Chade to adults who love stories about kickass heroines and damaged but honourable heroes. Passionate adult paranormal romances with story-lines about ingrained prejudice and fighting for what’s morally right.
