I really hated to see the Svatura series end, but
ORCHID is the phenomenal finale of author Abigail Owen's
stories. In the midst of the war against Maddox and
his followers, Ms. Owen gives us the break up of Adelaide
and Nate Pierce as a major plotline.
He has been lead to believe that Delia had lied to him and
powers to trick him into believing they are
a fated pair. When he severs their "false" relationship he
nearly destroys Delia. Little does he know he is now a pawn
to real evil.
With one of the key players not quite herself it could lead
to the good guys downfall. The break up is well put
together; it is
believable and as painful as any the
readers might have suffered and can empathize with.
I was very fascinated with what comes out of having Delia's
emotions turned off completely. They were shut down in an
attempt to protect her, because the loss of a soul mate is
dangerous for the survivor. In the truth it might hurt
like hell to lose someone you love, but not feeling
is so much worse. She gets to the point where she puts her
danger and really didn't care...because she couldn't.
There are also a number of added twists and turns that run
parallel with Nate and Delia's story, but I will let you
read the amazing offering to find out exactly what is
happening. Suffice to say ... if you want action, including
kick butt dragon action, family and friends fighting side
by side for the good of their kind, and of course true
then BLACK ORCHID (as well as the rest of the
Svatura series) is
the read for you.
Adelaide Jenner feels
nothing…she is completely numb inside. Her fated love
abandoned her and joined their enemy. On that day, her
sister turned off all Adelaide’s emotions in order to save
her from a heartbreak that could push her over the edge of
sanity. But the great power she claims, wielded without
compassion or love, can only lead to more pain.
Nate Pierce believes Adelaide used her extraordinary powers
to deceive him all these years. So he destroyed a
relationship he thought to be false and hungers for
Now, Nate serves Maddox, unaware that his new leader is
using him as a pawn in a bid to enslave or kill all
The only hope of finally defeating Maddox is for Adelaide
and her sisters to combine their growing powers against
But the key to a Svatura’s power is the heart, and Adelaide
is still missing hers.
