My Savior Blurb:
Amelia has dreamt of her mate since she was a little girl. All her life visions of a golden prince have warmed her heart and promised a fairy-tale future. She longs for the day when they will finally be together.
When the fateful day arrives and she meets Darian for the first time, she is nearly destroyed by his unequivocal rejection. His continued denial of their destined relationship has her doubting her own self worth and the visions she has had all her life.
Darian is teetering on the edge. He refuses to acknowledge Amelia as his mate and shadows continue to spread across his heart. He has grown used to the emptiness in his soul and almost fears the barrage of emotions she elicits. When an unexpected tragedy sends Darian spiraling into a hopeless abyss, will Amelia have the strength to pull him out, or will she succumb to her own darkness?

First of all, let me tell you how this review is written: after reading all 10 books in a row because I couldn’t help myself to take a break and write the review, I re started reading them again, one by one so I can write this. Crazy? NO!! that is just my excuse to re-read this series as much as I can.
I was so angry after I finished the 10th book when I figured it out that I stopped right down the middle when things got more and more exciting and I really need the next one like half a year ago! From what I can tell, based on the structure that the author is releasing these books, many another 10 books on the way??? Well that makes one like me a very happy person.
I started reading the “Bewitched and Bewildered” series when I was in a hunt to read some very hilarious books, and in every single thread somebody mentioned Alanea Alder’s books. Just let me tell you that they made me laugh out loud, got banned from reading them at night because my husband would lose his sleep from my laughter! Or ship me to another room and be quiet!!!
During my time making this review I have noticed that there are 2 sides of fans for the series: 1 part of which I am also an active participant which absolutely loved the books and find it hilarious and the 2nd part which gives reviews with words like immature, ridiculous and couldn’t even finish the first book to find out more that happens during the series. Well, I don’t blame which side you are, everyone is entitled to an opinion!
From my point of view, the story is so clever written that I absolutely am in love with every little detail. It is one of my all-time favorite series and can’t wait to see what happens next!
If you are a reader who prefers only books with a reality check and hates the dose of silliness written all over, I don’t think this book is for you. Usually when I read books, I borrow all it has to offer, so for me, personally, I loved being part of that world, and actually did not mind that much the down parts that maybe someone would categorize these series as a DNF (insta-love for instance or too much “Doctor Who” references).
My Savior is the story of Amelia and Darian.
We soon find out that Darian is close to losing his light, and by being a Fae he thinks he is almost lost. By discovering why, he is this way, we get to meet Queen Aleksandra and her family, and the story become more detailed.
I like how much everyone just gravitates around Meryn. More characters come around and soon Maryn has more family then she thought of, Amelia is her cousin and her six adopted brothers become Meryn’s new brothers too.
“She will either save us or be the death of us all.”
The craziness just keeps on going in Lycaonia where feral keep going with their attack.
“Why is it that the Alpha females are crazy?”
Meryn shrugged. “She made sense to me.”
Colton turned to Meryn. “You also set Aiden’s car on fire when he ignored you.”
Amelia looked at Meryn. “Sounds reasonable.”
Meryn grinned. “I know, right?”
There are some things that bothered me, like Amalia staying a virgin for her prince. I mean, I get the whole fantasy world and shifters, vampires, witches and Faye, but as you read more into the story, you kind of expect more and more out of it. I guess it’s a battle between learning more on the whole storyline of the series and how each couple have to come out and play.
All in all, some books were more fun than others, and some I liked best and some were good for the storyline to continue and watch how Meryn makes the world her playground.
