Review: East of Ecstasy by Laura Kaye

Publication: 4-22-14
Series: Heart of the Anemoi #4
Rating: 5 Cherries


Annalise Fallston made peace with postponing her big-city dreams to care for her ill father, but lately she’s been filled with a restlessness not even her beloved painting dispels. Worse, the colors don’t speak to her as they always have, and all her efforts produce dark, foreboding images of a dangerous man and a terrifying future.

Devlin Eston, black-souled son of the evil Anemoi Eurus, is the only one who can thwart his father’s plan to overthrow the Supreme God of Wind and Storms. But first, Dev must master the unstable powers he’s been given. Distrusted and shunned by his own divine family, he never expected to find kindness and passion in the arms of a mortal.

But Devlin’s love puts Annalise in the path of a catastrophic storm, and in the final Armageddon showdown between the Anemoi and Eurus, sacrifices will be made, hearts broken, and lives changed forever…or lost.

I would say that Laura Kaye is one of my more favorite authors.  I might, possibly, stalk her author page waiting for the release date to my all time favorite novella's sequel to pop up. Anyway back to this review, I loved the whole Hearts of the Anemoi series.  It is fun, whimsical and just amazing. Each character has such a solid story and the world building is great but you don't have to read the whole series if you don't want to. Each story contains just enough hints from the other books to make them connect while being solid enough to still stand individually. 

Devlin, Devlin, Devlin!  MmmmmHmmmmm!!!  Tall, dark, powerful, brooding, bad boy, future god of the east wind, need I say more.  He is a man with a dark, tragic past that doesn't trust easily.  Though when he finally does trust it is magical. 

Annalisa Fallston- Completely color blind, talented artist, and a whole lot more than meets the eye. 

She accidentally happens upon Devlin after he breaks into her art studio trying to find a safe place to hide.  One thing leads to another over the course of the story and they start to have feelings for each other.  These feelings are strong, volatile and tell a lot about each person.  There is a battle being waged amongst the gods that is taking place in the human world that Devlin and Anna have to try and stop.  Will they be successful?  Will their new found love withstand the epic battle to come?

This is the final book in the Hearts of the Anemoi series and it is an amazing finally.  I would say that you really need to do yourself a favor and read the whole series.  If you don't have the time to immerse yourself in a whole series at least read this last book!
