Trapped somewhere between life and death, demigod Cyril has lost the ability to communicate with his love. But not before giving her valuable lessons in magic, as well as his blessing to move on without him.
Coming to terms with Cyril’s absence isn’t easy, but Linden is doing her best to honor his wishes. Until she receives an unusual request from Moreaux, an estranged member of Cyril’s family. Bizarre things are going on with Mary, the former housekeeper, and Linden can’t let them go. But when her investigation leads to a mistake that nearly costs her life, Cyril’s best friend, Overton, steps in and violates a promise he made centuries before to bring her back from the dead.
Gratitude turns to comfort, comfort turns to desire, and desire leads Linden to a shocking revelation. In her charge to uncover the truth behind Mary and Moreaux, she discovers a spell she can’t undo without leaving wounds on her heart, wounds she knows will never heal…
As most of you who have visited my site in the past know, Renea Mason is one of my absolute favorite authors. She’s right up there with Alexandra Ivy, Lara Adrian, etc. for me. I didn’t just place her in that position…she EARNED her spot there with her first book, “Symphony of Light and Winter“.(Read Review Here)
It was(as I said in my review) like Christmas morning for me! I couldn’t have been happier…or more addicted!! Then she put out the novella “Imposters’ Kiss“(Read Review Here) and OH MY! Cyril has a little bit more somethin’ somethin’ that intrigued and enticed me more than before!! Could Renea Mason continue with this momentum or would she begin to plateau?
WELL!! Let me tell you….this woman doesn’t have plateau in her freaking vocabulary!! She not only maintained momentum, she took me on a roller coaster of emotions!
When we last heard of Cyril, he was…”detained”. Since sweet, loyal, golden retriever loveable Overton was Cyril’s right hand man, he naturally fell into step beside Linden, to comfort her, guide her and fulfill her every need.
Linden has the classic dilemma of being torn between two lovers. She loves Cyril, she knows he’s her soul mate and nobody can replace him. However, if you’ve read Symphony of Light and Winter, you know Overton holds part of Cyril within him. So Linden is drawn to not only that, but the person Overton truly is. There is also the fear she’s lost Cyril forever if she can’t figure out a way to save him and that’s REALLY hard to focus on when you’re channeling 6 other men’s fantasies while you sleep at night!! Then waking up to see the desire in their eyes from living it with her in THEIR dreams. Temptation is around every corner and sex is always on her mind.
When Cyril is able to communicate with her briefly, he encourages her to follow her heart and allow Overton in. Body, heart and soul. He knows she loves them both and he trusts Overton with his life and the most precious person he’s ever loved. Linden.
Renea Mason weaves an intricate tale and puts a whole new spin on a love triangle. She makes “cheating” feel okay in this situation. She makes you feel the emotions Linden has, by making her readers torn between Cyril and Overton too! But somehow it’s a gentle torn feeling. Very hard to explain. Plus you add in the fact you also want to see her with one of the other guys sometimes!! To put it bluntly, Renea Mason brings out our inner slut in the most innocent ways. NOW…that’s not to say “Between The Waters” is innocent! The sex is panty melting, innocent, orgasmic, powerful and yet gentle. She makes our inner good girl go bad and our inner bad girl go good!! HOW DOES SHE DO THAT!!??? Honestly…I don’t care! As long as she keeps putting out amazing books in this unique series!
And the ending! Holy shit! NOT what I expected and hot as hell! We also discover what the title(“Between The Waters”) means and how it will impact not only the story, but the love triangle as well!!! My eyes were absolutely GLUED to the pages!!!
If you haven’t read any books in the Symphony of Light series and you’re wanting a new addiction, pick up “Symphony of Light and Winter” first. It will grab you, hold you tight and make you never want to let go! And that’s JUST the writing! Imagine the feelings you will grow for the men in Linden’s life!!
Renea Mason has taken a simple genre and made it uniquely hers. This isn’t just a standard Paranormal Romance series. This is a legacy in the making.
