After learning Theo is alive, Sar immediately embarks on a mission to find him. Reunited, the lovers return to New York, Danial, Terian and Theo uneasily combining forces to protect Sar from Al’s assassins who still seek her. But when Sar is taken prisoner in an all-out attack, only one man can save her—her old adversary, Devlin.
Sar shows her impulsiveness and selfishness in this new book. At least that's what I thought about her. If I were in her situation, I guess I'm not sure I wouldn't do the same thing. She's so convinced of her love for Theo. I was surprised at how quickly they got married.
Danial's reaction wasn't what I expected either. I will say that over the series, his character has grown a little more mellow in some situations, and just as intense in others.
I did like that Terian is given a bigger role to play in this book. I also like that the bad guy image he once had has been changed to a more likable character.
Sometimes I just think Sar has the worst luck ever. There's always something bad happening or just about to happen to her.
Ms. Hall writes a lot of action in this installment of the series. Danger abounds and is never far away. Sar is accosted in the restroom of a restaurant she and Theo are in. The culprit is a complete surprise. Alphonse is still after Sar after her insult. A new threat had made itself known, Theoron's safety is in jeopardy.
Sar gets into more trouble when she is kidnapped by Al's goons. Danial and Theo are away on business and that leaves Devlin to come to her rescue.
I want to give Devlin the benefit of the doubt, but I can't help thinking about his 'vampire justice' scene which would make it doubly difficult to ever trust him. I was totally shocked at what happened with Sarelle and Devlin.
There are things that Sar learns when Theo was held captive in those years he was away. I wanted to cry at all he had to endure. I just want these people to be able to have lots and lots of happiness in their lives.
Taken for His Own is another fast and furious emotional ride that leaves the reader breathless and needing a cold shower after all the smoking hot sex going on in the pages.
