Kurzbeschreibung

A determination to survive….

Betrayed by everyone she loves, Valerie Dearborn will do anything to get out of Fey and avoid becoming Cerdwellyn’s queen. Even if it means she has to rely upon Lucas, the monster who betrayed her.

A bid for redemption….

Lucas felt nothing for hundreds of years, but Valerie’s blood has changed everything. Forced to confront his sins, he’ll do what he can to help Valerie survive. Even if it costs him his life.

A destiny cut short….

Cerdwellyn, King of the Fey lost his true queen centuries ago. He’s determined to make Valerie her replacement, but ghosts from his past have other plans.
The end of the story.

As Valerie struggles to survive she must choose between reality and illusion, between sacrifice and love, all in hopes of figuring out the truth: that if you love someone you must be willing to make the ultimate sacrifice.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Valerie Dearborn Trilogy 13. Januar 2013
Von NoOne
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Very few inconsistencies in the plot. Five points for an enthralling, clever, emotional, dramatic and funny story that is far away from the (in this genre already to often read) “black and white“ view. Most erotic scences arn't disgusting but hot. Erotic keeps luckily a lot in the background. The author is on the way to join the league of J.R. Ward, in my humble opinion. I hope my poor written English is informative enough to be helpful.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Bewundertswert konsequente Fortsetzung 24. November 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Warnung:
Wer unvoreingenommen und unbelastet in das Vergnügen die Love is ... -Serie zu lesen einsteigen möchte, sollte a) bei "Love is Darkness" anfangen und b) jetzt nicht weiter lesen, oh und

Achtung Spoiler!

Mal ganz ehrlich, bei keiner anderen Rezension war ich mir bis jetzt so uneins wie bei LIM. Meine erste Reaktion war 3 Punkte, zu düster und das Ende unbefriedigend. Dann fing ich an, über das Buch nachzudenken.
Die gesamte Reihe besticht durch die Herangehensweise der Autorin. Es gibt hier keinen wirklichen Helden, alle haben ihre "Fehler". Valerie wünscht sich nichts sehnlicher als ein normales Leben zu führen, weit ab von Magie und Heldentaten. Sie wünscht sich Normalität, Liebe und Vertrauen, Geborgenheit.
Jack ist besesssen von seinem Verlangen nach Vergeltung, seine Liebe zu Val einfach nicht stark genug. Er entscheidet sich nicht für Liebe und Leben, sondern für seine Rache, für die dunkle Seite der Magie in Form von Rachel.
Lukas verkörpert die Magie und er hasst nichts mehr als das, hasst sich selbst,aber er liebt Val, denn sie ist Liebe und Leben. Er ist fest entschlossen ihr zur Flucht zu verhelfen und sich dafür selbts zu opfern.
Der wirklich tragische Charakter in dieser Geschichte ist Cer, der durch seine Feinde und Vertrauten alles verloren hat und jetzt nur noch ein Ziel hat, nämlich sein Volk zu retten.
Der Kampf dieser Charaktere mit sich selbst, ist was das Buch trägt. Es ist ein Kampf zwischen Leben/Liebe und Tod/Unsterblichkeit, denn unsterbliche Männer können nicht lieben.
Die Frage ist also, ob einer der Männer Val genug liebt, um für sie zu leben.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Love Is Mortal (The Valerie Dearborn Series) 16. November 2012
Von Lily M.
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
"Love Is Mortal" by Caroline Hanson is the third and last book in the Valerie Dearborn Series and it follows straight on from "Love Is Fear" with Cerdwellyn, King of the Fey, who wants Valerie as his queen. Lucas being imprisoned in Cerdwellyn's castle who'll do what he can to help Valerie to survive, even if it means sacrificing his life.
This book is about betray, surviving, sacrifice, redemption and love.

In this installment we learn more about the characters and their past/history. Lucas baring himself completely to Valerie and making himself vulnerable...we learn about his sins, his deep secret and I also think we see here Valerie's true strength.

Let me tell you that I LOVED the first two books. The plot, the characters, the action, the romance,..all together I was very satisfied at the end of the books. With this one I can't really say the same. This book is different from the others and unfortunately it didn't leave me feeling satisfied at the end. I agree with the other reviews that something was missing. Yes, we see a glimpse into Valerie and Lucas new life, but I was hoping to see more dialogue between them (after the time in the dungeon...at the hospital and their decisions about their future).

I know there will be a "spinoff" which I think it'll not focus on Valerie and Lucas. I guess it'll include the other characters like Molly, Cerdwellyn, etc.

All in all, I liked and enjoyed this book very much and I'd recommend this.
So, if you want to know what happens in this book then go pick it up.

Thank you very much for all the work you put into this amazing Series, Caroline. Hope to see more of your works. ;)

5.0 von 5 Sternen Ich werde die Charaktere vermissen 10. Dezember 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Das letzte Buch der Trilogie hat mich zwar nicht vollstädnig befriedigt, aber es war eine passende und gelungene Fortsetzung der Trilogie. Ich fand es ein wenig Schade, dass die Beziehung um Val und Lukas fast Alles sehr auf einem emotionalen Level war. Es fehlte mir auch wenig Berührung/Kuss, Leidenschaft. Was aber auch klar, weil die Lust ja in den Hintergrund gegangen ist und die Liebe im Vordergrund war. Ganz am Schluss hätte ich mir noch mehr gewünscht, nicht nur die Perspektive von Molly. Insgesamt habe ich auch die Auflösung des ganzen nicht erwartet. Die Autorin hat es wirklich spannend gemacht bis zum Schluss, was für ein Wunsch kommt und die ganze Welt verändert.

4.0 von 5 Sternen LIM is finally here! Please give us one more!! 15. November 2012
Von lala-lately - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Oh man!! So I am really conflicted. On the one hand, I LOVE Caroline Hanson and especially adore this series. Caroline really did something amazing when she conceived Val and Lucas (and that psychotic biotch, Marion)---they are such awesome characters and in the first two books their energy jumped off the pages. But, on the other hand (and maybe this is 'cause I love them so much), I can't believe the third and "final" book has so LITTLE of the Val and Lucas I've come to love. I know there's a spinoff planned but it apparently won't focus on Val and Lucas. There are a lot of loose ends with other characters so I get the spinoff concept, but honestly I have a one track mind--I'm not particularly excited about Cer, a**hole Jack and weird Rachel, or creepy relative Molly starring in their own book/s.

**I don't think I can give a complete rundown of LIM without spoilers, but I will try. The ending shocked me so I definitely won't go anywhere near it in this review.**

So in LIM, what was backstory in the first two books (think Cer & Virginia) became front and center. Unfortunately for me, I never cared much for their story. So this third book was hard for me because it focused SO MUCH on Cer and all things Fey. In fact, there's very little vampire action, if at all. I thought Caroline did a fantastic job writing about the vamps before, and I am definitely sad that this was a book of Fey and fantasy, rather than a book of Val & Lucas in the real world. For me, that's where the main characters were most vibrant and where they had the best chemistry.

I think the things that make me most conflicted are that 1) we've been on a journey that we knew (hoped?) would end with Lucas' redemption and with Val's metamorphosis into her strong true self and 2) we finally get there but we never get the full view of them in those roles. There's very little 'real' dialogue between Val & Lucas, and I don't think the Val, Lucas, Jack triangle had the come to Jesus moment it deserved. And with the way the redemption concept is handled I think it took away too much of the Lucas who is so bad he's good. It felt like the compromise (sacrifice?) came too strongly from one side only.

All in all, this was a good book in a GREAT series. The fact that I devoured this book in one sitting on the day it was released speaks volumes about the author's talent. She's simply awesome! As fans, we hope for more of some things and less of others, but the story goes where the author takes you, and with a writer like Caroline, you are going to enjoy the ride. I love these books so much I am hoping for a fourth book where Lucas and Val can spend some time together (outisde of the dungeon!) and where redemption becomes a little less redeeming. Wishing and hoping for more is a fan's perogative, right!?!

If you're reading this Caroline--thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing your gift. I have read and re-read your books and love to escape into this world. Besitos!!

3.0 von 5 Sternen Valerie Dearborn, Book Three 3. Dezember 2012
Von Detra Fitch - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
The Fey were weak, almost gone; their only chance of survival was to find the Sard, a mystical object that resembles a jewel. When used in combination with the Book of Life and Death, its power could restore Cerdewellyn, King of the Fey, to greatness. To save his people, Cer needs to make Valerie Dearborn, the last Empath, his new queen. But Val is fed up with all the supernatural crap in her life and wants only to return to her realm and live a normal life. The only real hold Cer has over Val is her feelings for Lucas, King of the Vampires, who is currently weak and chained in the dungeon. Cer looks forward to what he plans to do with Lucas, the vampire that slaughtered his people; however, in exchange for Valerie's aid, Cer promises not to kill Lucas for a certain amount of time and to listen to everything the dark creature has to say.

Valerie's life is out of her control. She is in love with the most cold-hearted vampire ever created. To keep Lucas alive, she must help another king, Cer. But life with the Fey king would be no better than life with the vampire king. To make matters worse, Jack, the man she loves as a brother, has been transformed into a werewolf and has chosen to bond himself with Rachel, the vampire witch, instead of to her, his family. Bad news usually comes in threes, so it is no real surprise to Valerie when the spirit of Cer's dead love, Virginia Dare, begins to make herself known to Val.

The fate of all Other races is about to be decided. Everything depends on who wields the Sard.

*** THREE STARS! This is the third title of the series. It begins where the previous story left off. (I detest cliff hanger endings.) Valerie's story concludes in this episode, but a couple of threads are left dangling. The author may begin a new series if she so desires.

This installment has a lot of suffering, a lot of pain and torture. The plot itself slows way down so that the character of Virginia Dare has her time in the spotlight. Because so much needs to be accomplished and several couples (Rachel/Jack, Cer/Virginia, Lucas/Valerie) need to be followed, sections of the story came across as rushed to me. Lucas's character goes from stone-cold-hearted to take-my-blood-so-you-may-escape,-because-your-mortal-life-means-everything-to-my-undead-heart. As for Virginia, her spirit takes over too swiftly and Valerie's return seemed a bit too easy for me to believe. I was totally disappointed in Marion.

In my personal opinion, the events in this book should have been spread out over two titles. Doing so would have allowed the author to include more details and give room so that each character could have been well developed and their actions more believable. In fact, I would have preferred it if Dare's character were totally deleted. ***

3.0 von 5 Sternen ok conclusion, but missing some heat, and a chapter before the epilogue 19. Januar 2013
Von Book Worm - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
3.5 Stars. The third and final book in a series is often hit and misses. I guess it would be hard for an author to keep everyone happy. The overall story worked for me, I liked the outcome, I liked the twists and turns it took, and I liked seeing different sides to people, that you can be both good and bad. It was really interesting to read, and I liked the whole plot. I was invested in the characters, and was eager to get my happy ever after. However, when I finished it I was disappointed as it was not everything I hoped for. For me the reason that this book was not everything I hoped for is simple. Lucas at times felt like a different character, Valerie lost some of her spunk, the Jack and Rachel relationship is a bit odd, where was the sex and is there a chapter missing? Now let me explain these a little better without giving too much away. Lucas is being held by Cer, so I understand how he cannot be this all mighty tough vamp, but he turns instead into overly sweet Lucas, who old Valerie could have walked over. I wanted him to be tougher and rougher, sure it was nice seeing him sweet, and finding out more of his past, but I felt he needed to take control at times. Valerie is also with Cer, he wants her to be queen, she wants to escape, but is torn between just getting out and saving Lucas too. In addition Valerie also has to contend with Virginia the true Fey queen. So yes I want her to save Lucas, but she just gives up too easily to Virginia, I wanted more of a struggle, and I would have liked for her to save herself from Virginia rather than needing so much from Lucas. However, her character does get that spunk back at the end so maybe i should forgive the rest. The whole Jack and Rachel relationship was odd for me. I never felt anything from them in the previous books so it just felt weird. And finally the sex, ok, the previous books have had some pretty impressive scenes between Valerie and Lucas, and this book, nothing, and there was room for it. I missed it, and I missed the heat between them.

The actual ending was also a little strange for me, sure we get the happy ever after, and a set up for a follow on series with the other characters in an epilogue but the jump that happens from the actual final chapter to the epilogue made me feel like the book was missing a whole chapter.

If you have read the previous books in this series, you will want to read this book to find out what happens to everyone. I hope that you are one of the readers that the author has been able to keep happy.
Will I read it again? No
Would I recommend it? Sure, you want to know how it ends.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Disapointed 27. November 2012
Von Angry Lions Fan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I really enjoyed the first two books in this series but this book I really didn't enjoy. Valerie wasn't really important or a factor until the end. I mistakenly expected the Valerie Dearborn series to be about Valerie. The previous mentioned plot of Valerie becoming a full empath was anti-climactic. As important as it was made out to be I expected more. I also thought Valerie was uncharacteristicly soft and nieve. Like she really didn't learn anything from her experiences. As I read the book I wondered why the author chose to go in this direction which made sense when I got to the ending. Most of these reviews seem to like it but I did not. I felt cheated at the end.

2.0 von 5 Sternen I kept waiting...and nothing came 3. Februar 2013
Von lulu - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

I loved the first two books but this one was just odd.
Utterly disjointed, the plot development was bizarre and varied from sluggish to ridiculously rapid.
Something just went wrong here.
