REVIEW and GIVEAWAY: Black Orchid by Abigail Owen

Title: Black Orchid
Series: Svatura, Book Four
Author: Abigail Owen
Publication Date: May 23, 2014
Genre: Paranormal Romance

Adelaide Jenner feels nothing... she is completely numb inside. Her te'sorthene, her fated love, abandoned her and joined their enemy. On that day her sister turned off all Adelaide's emotions in order to save her from a heartbreak that could push her over the edge of sanity. But great power wielded without compassion or love can only lead to pain.
Nate Pierce believes Adelaide used her extraordinary powers to deceive him all these years. So he destroyed a relationship he thought to be false and hungers for revenge. Now, Nate serves Maddox. He is unaware that his new leader is using him as a pawn in a bid to enslave all Svatura.
The only hope of finally defeating Maddox is for Adelaide and her sisters to combine their growing powers against him. But the the key to a Svatura's power is the heart, and Adelaide's is still missing.

RATING: 4 stars

Review: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I am always leery of reading a book that is part of a series I haven't read before. This is one of the few books that can ALMOST be read as a stand-alone. There was a bunch of things, especially in the beginning of the book that I couldn't grasp. However, the author described the world and abilities so well, that I could read the book without being completely lost.
I found the author wrote so well, that not only was I not lost in the end of a series, but that I truly felt for Adelaide and Nate from the very beginning. I may not have understood the term te'sorthene, but I could certainly feel the love and heartbreak between them.
Now, even though I know the end of the series, I still need to read the first 3 books of the series to get the background and truly immerse myself in what has become a spectacular world.
