OBSIDIAN FLAME is book five in the Guardian of Ascension series. This is Thorne and Marguerite’s book.
I was looking forward to reading this book but have to admit that it didn’t really ring my bell. I found that I enjoyed Thorne’s character a lot. He was strong, possessive, and determined to have his woman. But at the same time, I don’t think he got what he deserved in Marguerite. I felt like he deserved someone better.
In the opening chapters, Marguerite finds a random club named Jose and decides to sleep with him even though her mind keeps constantly going back to Thorne. Thorne knows this and instead of letting his possessive beast out, he enters the mind of Marguerite’s latest conquests and has sex with her that way. It was like a mind fuck in the most literally way. And I’m not sure this worked for me. Yes, the sex was hot. But at the same time, I just didn’t find it all too romantic.
From there, the rest of the book didn’t appeal to me much. I found that I couldn’t relate to Marguerite’s character so therefore, it was difficult for me to believe in the romance. I’m hoping that the other books fare better than this one.

I had problems with Marguerite from the previous book. I didn’t dislike her as much by the end of this book. It also seemed that certain backround events kept being repeated, it became redundant.
I’m glad I’m not the only one who thought this. She did get better, but I don’t know…perhaps it was a little to late for me?
