Review: Genesis by Christie Rich



Having just escaped the nefarious plans of the Order, Rayla Tate thinks all she has to do now is rescue her family and sort through her feelings, but bonding with five men might just be her undoing. Not only does she have to deal with all of them reading her mind, Rayla must choose a bondmate before she will be allowed to venture into the mortal realm to save those she loves most.

She has three weeks to get to know each lord, but her journey turns into far more than a simple choice of the heart. Rayla comes face to face with the underhanded dealings of the fae political system where good is a matter of taste and evil lurks under beautiful shells. Long held judgments crumble when she discovers the heart beneath the men she has come to count on. Rayla must overcome long held fears, discover the truth behind the creatures of the dark realms, and conquer her greatest weakness before she can take her place as the new queen of the fae.

However, her world crumbles when she discovers following her heart’s desire might just mean the destruction of the world. Will Rayla have the courage to choose the man who has risked everything to win her, or will she succumb to the manipulations of the fae council and those who would use her power for evil?

One choice: five men. The stakes have never been higher, but which one will prevail?

My Review:
As Junie B. Jones would say, "Wowie-wow-wow!"  If you've read this far in the series you know what to expect from Christie Rich:  amazingly descriptive scenes, crazily creative characters and sizzling, smoking chemistry!  And Genesis does not disappoint!  Yummy, yummy, yummy!  

I love, love, love the absolute depth of each character and we get to really know each of the lords in Genesis ... and each and every one of them are a surprise!!!  It's amazing how much emotion you feel along with Rayla: fear, uncertainity, compassion and lots of frustration.  It seems crazy that she could be feeling so much and for so many guys, but it just so works in this book.  Truly my only complaint is that the book has ended (and ooh-ooh-ooh what an ending!) and now I must wait for book 4.  Please write faster, Ms. Rich!  I must know what happens!!!  

Cover Art:
The covers just keep getting more and more amazing!  Love the nod to each elements!  So beautiful!
