Tara’s choices once home, aren’t the most constructive and she finds herself running from her boyfriend and the men to whom he’s “given his property”. High on a cocktail of drugs, when the tree she sees as her safety net comes alive, she thinks it’s all a side effect until he’s still there the next day. In the distance, an evil lurks. Can she and her Sinnis get out of this alive? [easyazon-link asin=”B0082UISCW” locale=”us”]Ishtar Rising, Paranormal Erotic Romance / Urban Fantasy (Book 4 of Sinnis)[/easyazon-link] is the fourth book in the Sinnis series.
I originally read this book in September 2012 and when I went back in my notes to see why I’d given it four stars on Goodreads instead of five stars, I couldn’t quite remember, so I took the time to read this novel a second time.[easyazon-link asin=”B0082UISCW” locale=”us”]Ishtar Rising, Paranormal Erotic Romance / Urban Fantasy (Book 4 of Sinnis)[/easyazon-link] is well plotted and well written. Tara Kay is on a path of self-destruction and if Oren doesn’t do something quick, she will be dead. Oren comes at just the right time to save her, though a dark enemy is on the loose, so he may be too late.
I originally gave the novel four stars because as I read it, I found the shock as Tara discovered new things to be a bit much. She was a member of the Daughter of Women and not the most productive one so; sure, they kept her in the dark, but there are some things that belied belief that she would not have encountered before. The Guardians are all over the Daughter of Women compound. Surely, she must know about them? Why is Oren this big surprise that is blowing her mind? She must have been exposed to the strange with the Daughters of Women.
I changed my review to five stars once the author pointed out to me that Tara Kay is banned in the first book before the Sinnis relationship is revealed. This is a misunderstanding on my part due to the fact that I read the series completely out of order. Without that confusion, [easyazon-link asin=”B0082UISCW” locale=”us”]Ishtar Rising[/easyazon-link] is a five-star book for me.
Overall, [easyazon-link asin=”B0082UISCW” locale=”us”]Ishtar Rising, Paranormal Erotic Romance / Urban Fantasy (Book 4 of Sinnis)[/easyazon-link] is a good love story with a very good bad guy story line. Everything kind of comes to head in this novel with an ongoing story line in the series. I know it’s billed as erotica and there’s lots of sex, but it’s more a romance between someone who doesn’t believe she deserves any of the good things in life and her Sinnis.
