Kurzbeschreibung

From the author of Kinked and Oracle's Moon...In the USA Today bestselling author's latest Novel of the Elder Races, a woman finds herself in need of protection—and seduced by honor…

On the run from her former employer, Tess knows that she’s vulnerable on her own amongst the Elder Races. That’s why she decides to audition to become the human attendant of a powerful Vampyre of the Nightkind demesne. But while her position affords her the safety she seeks, her protector turns out to be more than she bargained for.

The right-hand man of the Nightkind King, Xavier del Torro is both terrifying and alluring. While his true nature frightens Tess, she can’t ignore the appeal of his innate sense of integrity and self-restraint. Thrown into Xavier’s world, Tess must quickly learn to navigate the dangers—both to her life and to her heart. But the biggest threat comes from her own past…

Ursprünglich hatte ich das Buch gar nicht kaufen wollen, da ich an dieser Serie vor allem Dragos und seinen engeren Kreis ins Herz geschlossen habe. Doch Thea Harrison hat es wieder einmal geschafft, mich in ihren Bann zu ziehen. Die Geschichte spielt natürlich in der gleiche "magischen" Welt, doch wirkt sie bei den Vampiren ganz anders - eher wie eine Mischung aus Thriller und Liebesgeschichte. Was das Ganze so besonders macht, sind wieder einmal die Personen, die einem schnell ans Herz wachsen. So habe ich die Geschichte geradezu verschlungen und freue mich sehr auf den nächsten Roman mit dem Vampirkönig (den ich im Roman mit Carling überhaupt nicht leiden konnte) als Hautfigur.

HASH(0x9d8376fc) von 5 Sternen A new direction with the Vampyres 2. September 2014
Von Jen (Red Hot Books) - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I always enjoy returning to Thea Harrison’s world of the Elder Races. It’s true that I haven’t loved every installment equally, but that’s because Harrison makes each of her stories and all of her characters and species so unique. You never get the same book twice, which keeps things interesting, but also means some books will resonate better with certain readers than others. This is a return to the world of the Vampyres. This didn’t excite me, considering the only other Vampyre centered book was one of my least favorite in the series. I ended up liking this book much, much more than that one, and it left me excited for the next installment.

Our hero is Xavier, right hand man to Vampyre King Julian. He meets the heroine, Tess, at an auction where vampires collect human attendants. I got the impression that he wasn’t there to find someone, but her blunt honesty intrigued him and he ended up selecting her for his flock. Tess doesn’t really want to be a blood source to a vamp, but she is in deep trouble with a Djinn and she is hoping that joining Xavier’s household will grant her some protection.

The story follows Tess as she faces her fears about Vampyres and Xavier, himself. Yes, there are some scenes from Xavier’s POV, but for me this book was definitely Tess-centric. She is the much more developed of the two characters, which is interesting since the hero is centuries old and she’s 24, but no matter. I found her very easy to relate to. She is unable to keep her mouth shut when she should. She follows her moral compass, even when it’s inconvenient. She is honest and blunt, stubborn and determined. And all of this gets her into trouble. I liked her and I really enjoyed the progression of her relationship with Xavier, though to be fair, he’s the one who went the extra mile to make it work.

The romance develops slowly, but I didn’t mind. There was some solid tension to sustain me, and if it had gone any faster, it wouldn’t have worked with Tess’s fear of Vampyres. The sexual payoff made the delayed gratification worth it. Harrison is always fantastic with the love scenes. Some people may find fault with the delay in the romance part of the story, though.

This book is almost completely cut off from the Wyr plotline, so don’t expect to see Dragos or very many familiar faces. It does draw some from the Vampyre history we already know, but this could be a great entry point for a new reader. Plus, the set-up for Midnight Kiss is great! Now I am actually looking forward to the next Vampyre book. Can’t wait to see where the story takes us next.

HASH(0x9daa039c) von 5 Sternen Exceptional Slow Burn Romance and Just Enough Action 3. September 2014
Von Douglas C. Meeks - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This novel of the Elder Races may be a bit different from many of the others in that it is primarily a slow developing romance and much less of an action novel as many of the others have been.

This story of Tess who is running from a previous employer who wants her back or dead and through a bit of luck ends up at the estate of Xavier one of the most powerful men in the Nighttime demesne. The story is one of self discovery and romance catching these two completely by surprise.

This is a slow burn romance that was done exceptionally well so as not to bore the reader, much of the novel is devoted to Tess becoming a much stronger person physically and mentally while Xavier tries to figure out what it is about this woman that seems to attract him so much.

The novel has a bit of humor, a bit of the feel of "My Fair Lady" and mix it together and it makes for a wonderful reading experience. It should be noted that this novel has almost no connection with the rest of the Elder Races novels and can be read pretty much as a stand alone.

Bottom Line: Highly recommended, immensely entertaining, 4.5 Stars rounded to 5

Reading Order:

Dragon Bound (A Novel of the Elder Races Book 1)
Storm's Heart (A Novel of the Elder Races Book 2)
Serpent's Kiss (A Novel of the Elder Races Book 3)
Oracle's Moon (A Novel of the Elder Races Book 4)
Lord's Fall (A Novel of the Elder Races Book 5)
Kinked (A Novel of the Elder Races Book 6)
Night's Honor (A Novel of the Elder Races Book 7)

NOTE: There are many novellas in this series and I have read almost all of them and enjoyed them, most people think book 3 Serpent's Kiss is the weakest of this series and I agree but it really can't be skipped but I did skip book 6 Kinked (due to time limitations) with no noticeable loss of enjoyment of book 7 (this book Night's Honor)

HASH(0x9df639e4) von 5 Sternen Fantastic addition to Thea's Elder Races 4. September 2014
Von Barb thereadingcafe - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Night’s Honor by Thea Harrison is the 7th full length novel of her Elder Races series. I am a big fan of this series, and this book took me by surprise. Thea goes out of her normal range, with a hero we never thought would get his own story. We do not get to see any of Dragos and his team. Night’s Honor belongs to Xavier del Torro, who is a Vampyre, and the Nightkind King Julian’s right hand. When we met Xavier in Serpent’s Kiss, he and Julian were not our favorites, as they gave our heroes Rune and Carling a hard time.

We meet our heroine, Tess at the start. She is on the run, and decides to audition to become an attendant for a powerful vampire. In disgust, she leaves the audition, as no one paid attention to her. Except one…… Xavier, one of the most feared and powerful of the Vampyres.

There is something about Tess that makes Xavier hire her for a one year trial. He senses her fear of him, but honors his deal to give her chance to learn. Tess meets many of the people working for Xavier, as she is trained how to fight and handle weapons. Each day she is pushed to the max by those training her, but she seems somewhat happy & safe living in this mansion. Xavier personally trains her how to dance the Waltz, and slowly she becomes more comfortable with him. One of the prerequisite for her to get past the one year trial is to be able to offer blood to him, something she cannot bring herself to do.

Xavier finds himself becoming obsessed with Tess, and knows she is running from something. When she reads something in the paper, she decides to run again. Only this time, Xavier stops her and gets the truth out of her. Tess is running from a very powerful Dijinn, and not even Xavier can stop him. What follows from that point on is an exciting adventure that will put Tess and Xavier very much in danger, as well as Julian. Lives are at stake, with some twists and betrayals. It is a thrilling finish to the end.

Even with the exciting storyline, it is the romance between Tess and Xavier that made this book so good. To watch someone like Xavier find himself falling in love, and Tess overcoming her fear of vampyres to fall in love with Xavier. I loved Tess, as she was despite her fears, a tough, outspoken & savvy heroine. Thea you have given us a fabulous story, with a hero we never thought we could fall for. Bravo! Night’s Honor is a great addition to the Elder Races series, and trust me when I say you will love Xavier and Tess.

HASH(0x9df117e0) von 5 Sternen TEPID, FLAT BOOK 12. September 2014
Von lovesbooks - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Like everyone who has posted here, I have loved some of Harrison's Dragon books, and liked others, but this is the weakest of them all. The heroine is a combination of headstrong stupidity and secretiveness. She reluctantly indentures herself to a vampire, in spite of her revulsion and fear of him, because she knows that he protects those in his household. She tells him of her danger only weeks after, a decision that is understandable, but dishonorable: she should know, from the beginning, that her presence endangers everyone in his household. The first night there, she is told to stay in her room, not to go out, not to open any windows, etc., but because of a horrific nightmare of her being tortured by the djinn that is chasing her, she opens her window, overhears her master's private conversation, and knocks over a water glass, thus alerting him. Does he fire her, as anyone would do? No. He is amused at her ineptitude and cheekiness. Unfortunately, I was not.There are little things that do not ring true in this book. I realize criticizing a book about vampires, dragons, and djinns seems crazy, but a book has to have internal logic. Our hero, a wealthy vampire, pays his servants (not including room and board) $1,000/mo. which our heroine thinks is a generous amount. Where? Certainly, not in the US. In short, this novel interested me (after all, Harrison IS a talented author), but it feels as if she wrote it on automatic pilot.

HASH(0x9df63abc) von 5 Sternen The story itself was good but the total lack of connection made it hard to enjoy. 25. September 2014
Von Shauni - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Originally reviewed for Bodice Rippers, Femme Fatales and Fantasy.

Welcome to Thea Harrison's Elder Races. Night's Honor is book 7 in this unique and wonderful series. The unique aspect of this series is that Ms. Harrison tells stories of just that, the Elder Races. The paranormal species that live along side humans. We get Dark Fae, Light Fae, Djinn, Elves, shifters, Oracle's and of course the Wyr. Since she writes about such a diverse community Ms. Harrison tells stories about ALL of them. Night's Honor is a story of the Nightkind (vampires). Who have been around for a long time but are technically not an Elder Race, they did come a bit late to the game... But they are a supernatural race.

All this being said what exactly is Night's Honor about? It's about Tess, a human and Xavier, the right hand man (so to speak) of the current leader of the Nightkind. Remember Julian from Serpent's Kiss? And for me, therein lies the problem. I have no idea who these people are and the one name I do recognize was something of an unlikable character the one time we met him.

Tess is on the run. A smart human woman with morals really shouldn't be working for an unscrupulous Djinn. Especially when he's first generation and one of the most powerful creatures around. Figuring the safest place for her would be ensconced in a vampire's household, Tess makes a bid to go into service to one. Only trouble, if you are part of a vamp's household you have to supply an occasional meal. And Tess is afraid of the bite. Did I say a smart woman? Adding to her fears she lands a job with Xavier Del Torro, monster.

Xavier Del Torro knows betrayal. He was betrayed by the pinnacle of Lowe during his time, The Church. Bad enough but he was a priest at the time. After leaving the priesthood, becoming a vamp and getting his revenge, Xavier committed his life to his sire, Julian. Together they rose to power in the Nightkind. Now Julian is in power and Xavier is working his hardest to protect his back. Only trouble is, this pesky human he hired at the Vampire's ball won't get out of his mind.

Xavier and Tess connect but don't sizzle. At least not for me. Their personal story just doesn't hold my attention. BUT some of the other aspects of the book do.

The story itself was good but the total lack of connection made it hard to enjoy. Personally, I felt like the sole reason to write this book was to make Julian tolerable, his story is next. If this was Ms. Harrison's goal she succeeded, at least for me. I am intrigued and looking forward to that book. So for me, this was a transitional book, a story created to bridge an arc.

I was hoping for another story about one of Dragos' guard or maybe even Dragos...sadly it wasn't but one must be realistic if all the books were about Dragos and family it wouldn't be the elder races.
