“OBSIDIAN FLAME by Caris Roane is an interesting paranormal romance. It is the book #5 in the “Guardians of Ascension”,while this is my first in this series,and a bit confusing at times do the character layout,it was easily to catch up on. I would recommend to start at the beginning of this series. See,” Ascension”,”Burning Skies”,”Wings of Fire”, and “Born of Ashes”. It is a complex,compelling and powerful story of passion,vampires,seers,ancients warriors,two earths,with a few twists and turns. Follow, Warrior Thorne is the Guardians leader,and his fiesty Breh,Marguerite,as they journey through trials,fight the Breh,and find love. Written with vivid descriptions and compelling characters you will not want to miss this story. This author has given her readers a different take on vampires and the other world. While, this was my first title by this author it will not be my last. If you enjoy the darker side of paranormal romance you will definitely enjoy this series. Received for an honest review from the publisher. Details can be found at St. Martin’s Press,the author’s website and My Book Addiction and More.

OBSIDIAN FLAME is book five in the Guardian of Ascension series. This is Thorne and Marguerite’s book.
I was looking forward to reading this book but have to admit that it didn’t really ring my bell. I found that I enjoyed Thorne’s character a lot. He was strong, possessive, and determined to have his woman. But at the same time, I don’t think he got what he deserved in Marguerite. I felt like he deserved someone better.
In the opening chapters, Marguerite finds a random club named Jose and decides to sleep with him even though her mind keeps constantly going back to Thorne. Thorne knows this and instead of letting his possessive beast out, he enters the mind of Marguerite’s latest conquests and has sex with her that way. It was like a mind fuck in the most literally way. And I’m not sure this worked for me. Yes, the sex was hot. But at the same time, I just didn’t find it all too romantic.
From there, the rest of the book didn’t appeal to me much. I found that I couldn’t relate to Marguerite’s character so therefore, it was difficult for me to believe in the romance. I’m hoping that the other books fare better than this one.”
“My new favorite book on this series! I was so not looking forward to the foul mouthed Marguerite in this book but I ended up growing to really respect her reasons for doing what she did. Thorne is a true hero and I wish we had more of him in this world!”Heather Soligo wrote this review Sunday, May 27, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No

“This was definitely my favorite in the series to date and I think the main reason for that besides well Throne being hot is the fact that the character development in this novel for everybody featured was great. In the previous books, we the couple going through the breh-hedden was the main focus but in this one, it was more like a mini novels in one book. We got to know Throne and Marguerite better but we also got to see different sides of Endelle, Braulio, Greaves, Grace, Leto and Casimir as well as others and I loved that.
Full review will be posted when I get my thoughts together...”
