Review of 'Seduced by Power' by Kimberly Kinrade


Forbidden passions.
Deadly secrets.
A love that will stand against it all.

Their passions will destroy them.
Only true love will save them.

**My thoughts**

I was chomping at the bit for this third installment to come out, especially after the second one ended in such a cliffhanger! And then Kimberly teased all of us by putting up just the first chapter. All we knew was that Rose's dark gift finally managed to take Derek away. ACK!

I ended up devouring the entire thing in less than an hour on a short car trip. I wanted no one to talk to me, so that I could concentrate on the final battles.

I will admit that like all final books in a trilogy, this one is my least favorite. I think this is because the climax hits in the second book, or at least in the very beginning of the third one, and the resolution comes rolling down like its on a steep embankment. (Think back to those charts you studied back in English class.) But the sheer NEED for that third book compels you to stick with it. I also tend to read the third book the fastest, to satisfy that need to know what happened.

This book is also the darkest of the three. It's less sexy. And that's okay. It's dealing with bigger issues than sex. And I think it is my favorite collection of Kimberly's that I have read to date.

So, now having read the entire trilogy, I guess you can say that Kimberly Kinrade completely seduced me with Rose and Derek's story. It does feel like it is just beginning. I look forward to reading the other stories that are coming out and hope to see these characters again!

Kimberly Kinrade was born with ink in her veins and magic in her heart. She writes fantasy and paranormal stories for all ages and still believes in magic worlds. Check out her YA paranormal series The Forbidden Trilogy, her lower grade fantasy series The Three Lost Kids, and watch for her New Adult romance and fantasy books coming in 2013 including The Seduced Saga, Sunrise and Nightfall, Death by Destiny and The Fallen Trilogy and her next YA fantasy adventure, The Reluctant Familiar. You can find her books on Amazon, B&N and Goodreads among other fine retailers.

When she's not writing, she runs Daring Books Design & Marketing with her husband, Dmytry Karpov, where they help authors with all manner of marketing, editing, and design needs until such a time that their brilliant children take over the business for them.

She lives with her three little girls who think they're ninja princesses with super powers, her two cats who think they're gods (and probably are), her two dogs who think they're humans and her husband, also known as the sexy Russian Prince, who is the love of her life and writing partner.
