BOOK: Lord of Fire

AUTHOR: Gaelen Foley
RECOMMENDED BY: [livejournal.com profile] etarowyn (author recommendation)

COMMENTS: Forget what I said about Robert "Hawk" Knight. LUCIEN is the lonely one! Lucien knows that his twin brother Damien is held in high regard among society and he, well, is not but making matters worse is the fact that Lucien agrees with the majority. No one has bothered to look past Lucien's striking good looks except Alice.

What I really liked about this book is that from almost the begining the hero is enamored of the heroine, whether he admits it or not. Lucien recognizes Alice as the one person who might be able to save him from his miserable existance, and is desperate to keep her with him. Yet he suffers from the "What if I'm not good enough for her" syndrome, as well as guilt over the death of his friend at the hands of his enemy.

Alice is your typical, almost boring virgin. She's so damn proper that she's a little annoying. At least until she finds herself face to face with Lucien for the first time. It isn't until that moment that I found out she was a strong character in her own right.

Lord of Fire was the thriller(ish) story that The Duke was not. There was a truly vile villian who kills an innocent (if foolish) woman, leaving a little boy an orphan. While I thought Caro's death was unecessary at first, I realized that without her death, Bardou wouldn't have seemed like a true challenge for Lucien. He would have just been another cowardly villan who was afraid to face the hero. I did enjoy this book a lot and have yet to lose interest in the series or Gaelen Foley.
