A good finale to the series! I was glad that Catullus finally got his chance at happiness! ( )

Coming from a long line of Blades, the hero has seen and experienced it all. That is until he meets the heroine. As a reporter, the heroine is driven with the need to know and when she catches wind of a secret organization looking for the destruction of the world, she follows the beautiful black man to England. When she's discovered, the hero is adamant about the dangers with being associated with the Blades and can't stomach the idea of her vibrant life being snuffed out. But the heroine's feisty red hair matches her tenacity and she proves herself to be an asset in the battle the hero faces. At first it is about the story, but real soon the heroine knows that she can't site by and allow evil doers destroy the world, not when she can help stop them. And the time frame is very short. Once the Blades catch wind that the enemy has already summoned Arthur and is marching on London, it's up to the hero to stop them. I freaking loved this story. The hero is a genius. He loves the challenge of solving problems and lives in his own head for most of the time. As such, he's lived a lonely existence. His experiments and his go go non stop brain makes it hard for him to understand women let alone allow them to get close. When he meets the heroine he is instant bewitched by not only her beauty but her brains as well. She's very intelligent with a thirst for knowledge that matches his own. But more than that, she understands him. He sees her as the perfect mirror to himself, someone whom he can easily rely on and trust more than anyone he's ever trusted before. But he's a nervous wreck when it comes to the flirtatious banter between men and women and more often than not ends up making a fool of himself. The heroine comes a country that is famous for it's mistreatments of black people but she's never shared her countryman's views. From the second she meets him she knows that there is no one in the world like the hero. He radiates power and intelligence and has an abundance of charisma that makes him so attractive. Can blame the girl, the hero is certainly a very special hero even with his many oddities and quirks. He had the ability to give comfort to those around him. He was always cool and calm under pressure and would always have a plan or an idea to solve their problems. And when he faltered, the heroine was there to inspire him. They made the perfect team because they both shared a desire for adventure and their courage pushed them deep into the world of magic and danger. But the knowledge that the other was always there standing right at their side made for a deep connection that resonated throughout the story. I loved the hero, starting out as an nervous adolescent in the face of the heroine's blatant flirtations and gradually becoming more at ease with teasing her. I did think this book could have been a tad bit shorter as it spans almost 450 pages but I can say that I was never bored and the lovely characters always kept me hooked. ( )

It was all well and good, steampunk-y, entertaining fluff, right up until they entered "Otherworld." Nope. Just nope. A magical cottage that just happens to trap them, so that they have no other recourse other than to make sweet, sweet love instead of saving the world, as they're supposed to be doing. No. Done. Really, Arthur and Merlin was stretching it for me, but the fae world just brought it all to a screeching halt. DNF.

Inventor Catullus Graves, lover of sartorial finery, warrior and tinkerer extraordinaire believes he's happy with his life. Yes, he's sometimes lonely, but he's never met a woman who can match his intelligence and curiosity - one that doesn't bore him - except for other Blades. And none of them seem to be quite his match. But he has a decided weakness for freckles, and for one curvy redheaded reporter. Too bad she seems determined to expose the secrets he and the Blades have worked so long to keep.

Chicago reporter Gemma Murphy thought she'd found love once. She was wrong. Now she's determined to earn the respect she knows she deserves. She has a passion for real reporting, not fashion and stain removers. And she's rapidly discovering a passion for Catullus Graves, as well.

The Blades of the Rose have chased and fought the Heirs of Albion around the world. Now the battle's come home to England, and it will take all hands - and some Otherworldly ones - to retrieve the Primal Source and stop the Heirs from taking over the world.

Fast-reading fluff - and there's nothing wrong with that! ( )
