Annabelle Jacobs ☆ 6 Characters

's sister Cerylea encourages him to pursue the relationship But with the stresses of ruling Torsere a romantic attachment is low on Ryne's list of priorities Nykin admires the king from afar but wants than to warm his bed for a night or two Torsere remains under threat from the lowland armies of Rodeth and Athisi To protect their kingdom Ryne and Cerylea intend to form an alliance wit I really like fantasy and the world building in this story is very good I don’t like to repeat the synopsis in my reviews but the blurb from the publisher misses out one of my favourite characters in Capture the Dragon ‘Fimor’ He was very noble and had a dry humour that really endeared him to me and I loved his relationship with his rider ‘Nykin’ There is a very good story here but Capture really feels like the first of a series and the seuel is on its way There is a lot of information about this world the inhabitants their history and battles to impart Additionally the introduction of the many characters in this story has to be made Capture is information heavy and whilst the story still caught my interest and has me wanting to read the seuel I felt the central relationship between The Prince ‘Ryne’ and Nykin sufferedAs I mentioned previously the building of the relationship between Nykin and his dragon is wonderful and I really felt the worry and bond they have for each other However I wish the same could be said for the human bonds This is the development stage of the MC’s relationship and should be the most intense part where they fall in love but I was not convinced Apart from a little hidden underwater ‘frottage’ and a ‘maybe blow job’ there is no real sexual or importantly emotional intimacy High Fantasy does not usually include a lot of sex but to make the relationship between a high born Prince and a lower born Rider seem believable that relationship would still need to be very intense and passionate I felt fondness and caring where I wanted to feel passion sexual tension and emotional needI will definitely read the next novel and maybe that is where I shall find this missing element The story itself has all the other elements reuired for a really good series in an interesting fantasy world I liked that Annabelle Jacobs included a map of this world near the beginning of the book However her descriptive writing was so clear that I really didn’t reuire a visual aid but it made me smile as it seemed like a nod to Tolkien whose magnum opus definitely did reuire a mapAdd in a gorgeous cover and all in all I would recommend this first book

    The first book of a fantasy series always takes a bit of bedding in as world building sits alongside the main plot lines However for most of this opener in Annabelle's high fantasy the two intermingled uite nicely together without needing a lot of exposition I loved the dragons in this the idea of bonded riders isn't new but the restriction on time served together was a cool twist to the trope Both main characters had interesting personalities I also loved the Princess and the brief glimpses of the elves There's clearly a series long story arc going to run through all three books but this particular plotline wrapped up suitably for meThere's a sort of cliff hanger for the overall story but I'd expected that and it didn't feel like things were being pushed over to drag it out

    Although I am always pleased when an author tackles the fantasy genre this one didn't work for me I felt like the characters were very flat

    This review can be found at The Blogger Girls review site45 starsAs the King of Torsere Ryne can have anyone he wanted but not for than a night or two He has responsibilities towards his people and no where in that includes having a lover even if he does harbor some intense feelings for a certain dragon rider because nothing could ever come of it Nykin is one of the King’s elite dragon riders that has a special bond with the dragon Fimor but his desire to have Ryne is almost as strong When the time comes for Ryne to escort his sister safely to the city of Alel he’s expecting an ambush but with his dragons he hopes he can still get his sister to her betrothed Unfortunately things don’t go as planned when his enemies end up injuring and kidnapping Ryne during the ambush Desperate to rescue his King Nykin volunteers to breach the fortress Ryne’s being held at even if it means sacrifice himself to save the man he’s starting to loveI LOVED this book It hit than just a few of my buttons It’s a fantasy there’s dragons there’s royalty there’s kidnapping there’s not a lot of sex sorry guys and most of all there’s sexual tension enough for me at least P The world pulled me in from the beginning and I loved being able to explore the dragons and their bonds with their riders I also loved that the world had human enemies and elven allies because it made for some interesting discoveries all aroundThe characters are a real treat though Nykin is the young brash dragon rider who’s uick to offer his help without really thinking about how it’ll affect others like his dragon Ryne is calmer serious but he’s drawn to Nykin and his constant blushing It’s adorable to be honest One thing that I loved was Ryne’s jealousy when a few elves were flirting with Nykin While Nykin and Ryne weren’t lovers the attraction between them is obvious to everyone except each other so Ryne’s reactions to others’ attentions on Nykin were amusing to say the least When they finally get together it was worth the wait I just wished we were able to see of them getting to know each other passed what was on the surface so to speakWhile I loved this story I did feel like at the end we missed out on a few scenes and instead were just told about them For example when Nykin woke up and Ryne tells him how much he’s had to do at the castle the discussion about appointing Nykin King’s Consort etc I would have liked to see some of that happeningIn the end I really enjoyed this story It’s intense at times and has some good tension between Nykin and Ryne especially with Ryne’s jealousy I also loved that it had some good suspense and action not to mention the world was very intriguing I can’t wait to read the seuel Union because I’m really looking forward to exploring of the bond between Ryne and Nykin

    Dragons Do you really need than that to want to read this book? Okay fine for those who do here you goThis a great start to a new series There are dragons and their riders who are bonded to them There are some elves all magical and sexy Sword fights and some archery action   Nykin is so young sweet and very brave He's got a huge heart that seems to be set on King Ryne a man way beyond his reach When Ryne is taken captive by their enemies he has to try to save him no matter the risk to himself He goes in knowing that their rescue plan hinges on him being tortured and that he will most likely be killed But this is his King and his dream man and well he's young sweet and brave   Ryne came to be king at a young age through the tragic loss of his parents He rose to the occasion and with the help of his sister Cerylea he has led his people bravely and wisely He knows that they need the alliance with the elves if they are to survive He knows that makes Cerylea's life precious He knows that when he is captured he will be tortured and killed The only thing he hopes for is to keep the secrets of his people safe from their enemies   Fimor is Nykin's dragon and he is awesome He is definitely a huge part of this story He and Nykin's can mind speak and they do so throughout the book In many ways he is the one in charge in their relationship as he is much older and wiser than Nykin He's very patient with his young human The love they have for each other is touching and wonderful   I enjoyed Annabelle Jacob's other novel The Choosing and I could see the same sense of adventure and brave young innocence in this story as well A lot of responsibility has been thrust upon these young men and they rise beautifully to the occasion   I really enjoyed my time spent in this world and look forward to my next journey into Torsere and the elven city of Alel to attend Cerylea's wedding in the next bookRecommended for those who enjoy fantasy romance adventure and have the good taste to love dragonsReviewed by NinaTo see of this review and others like it please visit us at Gay List Book Reviews at wwwgaylistbookreviewswordpresscom

    Original Blog Post we have a kingdom under threat A king and his sister in dire need of assistance and protection from the most unlikely of allies the elves The only way to gain this protection is to marry the Princess Cerylea to the elven prince Morkryn King Ryne is hesitant for along with the deal comes uestions which answers he is unwilling to reveal of dragons their riders and their magical bond Faced with no choice but to answer the uestions young dragon rider Nykin and his dragon Fimor are tasked by the king to provide the show and tell Nykin is young and handsome and Ryne is caught between his growing attraction and his duties as king With his head firmly set of the politics of the marriage and the threat of war he sets aside his personal feelings On their way to the wedding their party is ambushed and despite dragon protection he is capturedNykin's need to protect his king overrides his own attraction to the man Knowing he may just be the only one to pull it off he volunteers to go into enemy territory and attempt to rescue the king This is when the turn of events turn from a simple story into a gruesome tale of torture Nykin's selflessness and his ultimate sacrificeCapture may not be high fantasy but it may just likely turn to one should the turn of events in the succeeding books reveal what may have been left out in this first book It is the first of the Torsere Series A fantasy world of elves dragons dragon riders kings and princesses as well as villains and psychotic sadists it was a fascinating read uite hard to put down and visually graphic in many of the scenes that set my teeth to grind my heart to pump and to cringe in horror
