There is a race called Calydon, which includes a guardian warrior class, Order of the Blade. Instead of everything being happy happy joy joy, disaster strikes as in the male goes insane, after a five step bonding. Therefore the Order of the Blade either preemptively kills the woman sheva or if the bonding is complete they kill the male. So Calydon's do reproduce but just not with their shevas.
So we have a race of people who are doomed because of a love curse. So this opens up a lot of problems for me as the reader, especially since this killing for the good of the world has been going on for hundreds of years. This Order of the Blade has been killing innocent woman to protect the world because the dude will go insane, so to prevent the insanity they kill the woman.

Why not kill the dude! Why does the woman have to be the one killed. Because the males are so much more important. I think I would have enjoyed this book, if the curse would have been something new and the hero in Quinn hadn't been merrily killing lovers up until he finds his sheva. But killing them with a heavy heart. It is an interesting world Rowe has built, but the execution of her soulmate twist just left a bad taste in my mouth. The insane rogues could not have been imprisoned. The woman could not have been sequestered away from the males that go insane, if the bonding is complete?
This going on for hundreds of years is the insane part. Too many what ifs for me. When it comes to the first book in a series, I cut the author a lot of slack. It was fairly well written, I followed the story fairly easily, but what I hated was the idea that the men were okay until their Sheva comes along. I'm sick of blaming crap on women. And having to beat the younger sister to get the dark side of her magic?
Yuck, again. C'mon, be original; don't blame the women!! I'll try the second book, then we'll see. This quote in the book says it all, ["I don't want to have sex with you. Neither of us will. When the choice is taken away, it's rape. The guy and his posy of soldiers have killed a bunch of innocent women because of some soul-mate curse, and when he finds his own soul-mate, he gets to keep her?
And apparently, for these men, finding a soul mate means turning into jealous, rage-filled stalkers he won't even let her go to the bathroom by herself. Really romantic And I don't care if this is some alpha-male thing, but when a man says that he can barely restrain himself from "taking" her, then that borders too close to assault.
A man should always have a control of his desires. Will their need for each other propel them into their final destruction, or can love shatter the bonds fated to destroy them both? Theresa Nichols is so over being stuck in dragon form. Desperation sends Theresa to make a deal with her reluctant bestie's boss, who happens to be the leader of hell.
Totally worth risking your eternal soul to get your life back, right? Except once Theresa goes human, everything falls apart. The dangerous badboy she's kinda falling for turns out to be an ex-dragon slayer, her ex-lover from a couple centuries ago is stalking her, and there's a team of active dragon slayers hunting her down.
When private detective and reformed dragon slayer Zeke Siccardi realizes that he's inadvertently set two sets of assassins on Theresa's tail, he's determined to make it right, no matter how badly she wants him out of her life. There's no chance for a dragon and a dragon slayer to make a relationship work, right? But when the stakes involve murder, eternal love, and the safety of the Goblet of Eternal Youth, not to mention the fate of dragons everywhere, Theresa and Zeke can't afford not to team up. But will their deadly attraction destroy them before they can save Theresa's life and Zeke's soul?
