This is book 3 of a trilogy and it picks up where book 2 left off. This SHOULD NOT be read as a stand-alone.
CLAIMED (The Torzial Affair Book 3) brings the trilogy together. It is not, however, immediately tied in a nice pretty bow. There is a lot still going on which kept me frantically turning the pages to get to the very end. For a variety of reasons, I was unable to read this series back to back and typically it would take me a few minutes to acclimate back to the characters in the book. NOT A PROBLEM WITH THIS TRILOGY. The books are one epic tale and from the very first page, I was in love with this series.
The Torzial Affair is a spin off of the Prestian Series and I am usually a bigger fan of the OG, but not in this case. The writing is layered and complex. Scenes move the story along and are written very visually. Threads from the previous books/series are woven together in a tapestry so full and rich, that it’s difficult to put these characters down.
I absolutely recommend this series. As I have said in each review, do NOT short change yourself and read out of order.
