FOREVER KNIGHTS: #16 To Keep Her

All Rights Reserved ©

Summary

BOOK SIXTEEN of the Forever Knight Series. Everything else in the room stopped the light’s glow softened to hazy gold. And she recognized his movements with absolute certainty. She withdrew around the corner and steadied herself in less then a microsecond to bolt across the room and out the side door to the garden. Her first leaping step was intercepted by a hand around her waist. Turning her in a full circle to slam her back to the wall she’d just fled from. He snarled slightly and rolled his neck and people instinctively moved from the corner without even realizing their instinctual reaction. Without disturbing their festivities. Blue eyes were huge. And her body quaked. He immediately eased his grip. Drawing a long heady breath. “Elsabet…” “How’d you know?” She breathed. “How could I not?” “How?” “Your light.” He tilted his head. “Your scent.” He lifted it to scent the air above her. “I could track you by that…” “Not in a field.” His head lowered. Intrigued. “As you say I smell of flowers.” "Anywhere." He eyed her dangerously. Putting a hand against the wall near her head. She jerked to the side, seeing the trap closing but his other hand slammed to the wall on the other side. He growled in his throat. “What do you want?” She asked. His long unblinking stare was answer enough. “You let me go..." She shook her head desperately. "Perhaps I shouldn't have."

Forever Knights: Insatiable Beasts


The Countries of Ardae operate relatively oblivious of Radix Malorum’s demonic plague clambering over the country like the fiercest sickness.

Deragan Black’s pack of immortal knights not only have extraordinary abilities but can shapeshift into dragons, wolves and panthers. Their numbers dwindle as Radix whittles away at their survivors.

Acharius' fears are mounting as he receives further information that Chavias, Radix’s warlord, is actively hunting him. Acharius was cornered by Chavias who nearly killed him. In his panic, Acharius ordered Chastain to flee. Unaware of the Targue that pursued her and collapsed his cave in on her.

Alazareth knows Riaura has turned against him. He’s lost patience with her refusal to acknowledge Danbury is the root of evil in Nightway. When she has him brought in as a traitor against the crown he has no choice but to take everything from her. He’s stolen her castle and he’s stolen her and now her council has deemed he’ll be her king.

Chavias has found solace with the Winter Dread, Sabine who’s begun reading his journal. He's been ordered to kill Acharius but Bast intervened and persuaded him to return to the lair in defiance. Additionally, Calisto has manifested in the flesh in Chavias' little prison. The result of Raese's magic has brought her into the correct plane but the wrong location. Now Chavias is hiding her from the demon that'd kill her.

Deragan fights for the patience to follow his carefully laid plans. Nora is starting to recall who they were. She suspects Deragan is not what he claims. She’s befriended the wolf that has been watching over her. And no longer fears her furry sentries.

Raese Merlinus knows what Calisto was to him and is desperately trying to get his staff back and find a way to bring Calisto back to him. Calisto has been trying to find a way to reach into the mortal world and escape her prison outside of time.

Rhyers, the tracker, has been dealing with a progressively difficult Miss Marshall who is now bent on spy games with her brother’s former partner, Christophe. Becoming increasingly determined to seduce Rhyers in the process.

Savage Jaxson is now the greatest Trader Market in Ardae, The Undermarket. Run by the ferocious Barter Queen, the owner of Winter’s Haven alehouse. Dimurah is a Watcher who instinctively ascended in order to heal Savage when he was poisoned. Savage’s political influence is spreading over the continent. And he seems to have befriended the most unlikely of allies, a bitter, broken valkyrie.

Sebastian enjoyed every moment with his girls, daughter Sebet and mate, Elsabet. But Sebet was stronger then expected and managed to make it beyond the castle walls where she was slaughtered by Targue before her mother, who now blames Sebastian for their daughter’s death. After Elsabet attempts to take her own life, Bast realizes that it’s long past time to free her.

Teverius’ self-exile to the Netherlands has been hampered by the Huntress who has sited him as her current prey. Making clear her interest. He’s now taken Burka, his Sarabi on a tracking mission to find Raese. Coming across a highly unique creature roaming the Paladines. And the Alpha, Deragan, has now demanded that Tev produce this Huntress that can prey on demons. Something, Tev has been unwilling to do.


Radix twists human souls each day that passes.

Okine, his dark commander continues to turn human souls into Cimmerii. Stocking Radix’s dark force at an expedited rate while Forever Knight numbers only decrease.

Karina, once Acharius’ ward, is now evolving as a Cimmerii with her serpents and has murdered the women that raised her, Acharius’ precious elder women.

Nichole Salaices: I am loving this story. I want steel and cracker together but he has to suffer before he is forgiven.

LelandLL: At first, it was a story of humans vs werewolves and then it was uniting the both races. It had good prose, easy to follow along, punctation & grammar is good with the exception of not having a seperate POV at times but other than that. It is a good story.

Tanisia Potter: So far the book is very good. The story really keeps your attention.

Madhumitha: What a Cliffhanger? I am waiting for the update.

alexannism: Love the story. The only dislike I had was that Ashton was attached to Diandra prior to him knowing his feelings towards Charlotte. Good read for those who likes clean romance and a bit of drama. The comedic part was awesome though. Chloe and Charlotte they both funny.

Kendra: This was incredible, short and sweet, loved it

Armi: wondering how it will end..
