Regally Bitten is the third book in the Blood Alliance series by this series and I have to say that this world is so addicting, and I honestly can’t seem to get enough of this author. I am so grateful for Jenn for introducing me to this series and just reading this series is telling me of the untapped jewels in the indie publishing world of paranormal/UF romance. Now I think this series is a mix of genres, but the one that is most prominent is Urban Fantasy, it definitely has a more Urban Fantasy feel but with paranormal creatures contained within it, so it does have a mix of elements, but I really have found the voice of this author to be so unique as it comes alive in these stories. I am actually really addicted to these books and I am having a hard time pacing myself because I just want to devour them all. Now I am not always a fan of menage romances, but this is definitely a solid one and one I couldn’t get enough of. I was truly endeared by the triad love affair and all the ins and outs that come into play with this one.
Regally Bitten is a stunning yet dark and crazy world that features:
- Luna -an alpha wolf female, raised to be submissive and subservient to the males of her kind, been abused, but her spirit not yet broken and taught the ways of the old world
- Edon -alpha wolf and heir of the Clemente Clan pack, about to face the trials to become the alpha and take over for his father, determined to be like his grandfather in his leadership if he can survive his father.
- Silas -human who was granted immortality as a wolf, but now considered a gamma of the pack, and just a grunt to do all the heavy work and the only one who treats him with decency is the heir. But has strengths no one has tapped into yet.
Regally Bitten is a story which starts off with an arranged mating (marriage) between Edon and Luna. Luna knows she really has no choice in this and knows that if she follows through with her plan, that she could suffer a horrible fate under her father’s hand and her mother may even pay the price, but she has to try. She refuses to be broken like her mother or like Edon’s mother. But her plan doesn’t do the trick, it only entices Edon in a way that she didn’t expect it to and when he claims her proudly infront of everyone, her fate is sealed. But she knows that this is not the end, but only the beginning. She doesn’t know what to make of Edon, only that he is different. He seems cold toward her at first, but she sense something honorable within his nature. Silas was once human but then was turned into a werewolf, and is furious that they were lied to about the human trials, that all his work and sacrifices seem to be for nothing until he runs into two wolves, he never expected to form an attachment to. Their bond could be seen as forbidden by some, but there is something powerful building between Silas, Luna and Edon. But there is dangers that are surrounding them, dangers that they may not survive if they don’t unite fully. But will they be able to survive what Edon’s father has in store for them? Or will they perish underneath the deceit and betrayal that is rising within the pack? Or can Edon and his mates conquer and continue forth with this secret alliance to bring back the old world order…
Regally Bitten is a story that is dark and twisted and is so BRUTAL. These are werewolves after all and their world is not nice in any way. But I have to say after seeing just vampires in the previous two books, I am so addicted to these wolves, their culture and traditions and the differences from the old world to the new world. I really love seeing the aspect of how power corrupts so cruelly, and we see how well it corrupts in this series but most especially in this book. I truly admired these three for being so strong in this world that is so dark and twisted, for still having honor and integrity. There is a character that I just loved seeing which was Edon’s grandfather, he is so wise and knowledgeable, and you can see how Edon is becoming just like him. This story definitely has its intense moments, but it also has its sweet and poignant moments that build the mating bond between the three here. We learn that their relationship is called a “triad” and is quite rare and special. Seeing them discover how precious it is and willing to fight and to sacrifice when its necessary was a beautiful thing. They go through so much and this book definitely is not the light and fluffy kind. So be warned of how brutal some things are in this book, because this author doesn’t sugar coat things. But I loved that about this book and seeing how these characters just rise above their circumstances to fight for a better world. It has truly been a remarkable experience to delve into this series and with each book get another glimpse into this world and seeing how the overreaching plot is building and I honestly can’t wait to see what this author has in store for her readers and curious to see the growth of these books here.
Overall, I found Regally Bitten to be a powerful portrayed romance that showcases the beauty of love, sacrifice, and healing. It is a story of strength, of powerful will and rising above to cultivate one’s strengths. Its truly a gem of a romance that reaches my top favorites of the year and I am thrilled to continue with these books.
