MY REVIEW -
Another wonderfully amazing book by Brenda Tetreault! I am loving this series! The writing and characters are excellent, and the story really pulls you in. The depth of feeling and passion these characters feel for each other is sigh worthy. I listened to the audiobook version, and once again the narrator was amazing! She also did the audiobook for the first book, and she was great reading that book too. She does multiple voices and accents, and really brings the story to life. In Salvaged, we learn more about why Caius is the way he is, and it is just heart-wrenching! Caius' wife, Wren, leaves him without telling him because she believes she will be the death of him, and after searching for her and not finding her, Caius' heart breaks and he goes down a path of destructive ways. Caius screws tons of random women, and uses his powers as Cupid's son to make the women fall into despair, and because of these actions Caius' father, Cupid, decides it is time to take drastic actions to bring his son back. I felt so bad for Caius and Wren, it was difficult to hear about the pain Caius feels due to the actions of Wren, and it was difficult to hear about his destructive ways with lots of women, but I had hope for them to find a way back to each other. The events of the past make the path difficult for Wren and Caius, and Wren's guilt eats away at her and has turned her into a harder women. Poor Wren! She made some really bad decisions, and I really felt like she should've known better as a Valkyrie that her actions could be the very thing that causes the events that she is afraid of. The depth of love and passion they feel for each other is so sweet, and when they are together the chemistry is amazing. We also get more of Caine and Gaela, which I love! Their story is another heart-wrenching story, and I so want them to have their happily ever after. Caine has been cursed to kill Gaela, the woman he loves, so he is trying to stay away from her, but these 2 want and love each other so much, they can't stay away from each other and would even rather be dead then away from the other. Follow your hearts people! I am definitely reading the next book in this series, and others from Brenda Tetreault because her books are just terrific! Definitely read this and the first book! So good!
