{Tour Stop} Allegiance by K.A. Tucker **Meet Caden, Review & Giveaway*

Evangeline finally got what she longed for – the cursed pendant off her neck and Caden in her arms - only it has come at a steep price. An unknown poison now courses through her body, slowly morphing her into something no one but the Fates can foresee. She has her suspicions though...and, if she is right, it will spell certain ruin for her and Caden. She won’t last long enough to realize that though, if Viggo and Mortimer uncover the treasonous secrets she keeps from them– that Veronique is now free of her entombment and in the torturous clutches of the Witches and the Sentinel or that she is protecting a Sentinel within their very midst. Always the naive human caught in the midst of the vampires’ web of deceit, Evangeline is now weaving her own dangerous web in order to keep her friend alive, rescue Veronique, and stop a seemingly inevitable war from starting. But can her honourable nature handle the depths of duplicity for which she must go to be in league with the Vampires? Dark and gripping, full of angst-riddled scenes, Allegiance will have readers anxiously turning pages to find out if Evangeline can survive this spiralling disaster.

Review

  Action and suspense.  The two words that come to mind most frequently when I was trying to think of what I wanted to say here.  I enjoyed the first two books but hings really picked up and took off with this one.  And I mean picked up stared running!  Ya there was a few trips back and some spots where it was taken down to a jog so that the scenery and what was going on but it was never slow. 

  The story was just chalk full of progression.  I love it when I finish a book and can honestly say that it went somewhere.  Especially when the series gets onto the 3+ book.  This book however not only progresses story wise but there is also lots of character growth.  There is also loss and light throughout the story.  I think I actually seriously missed one of the characters but how realistic would it be if everyone lived right?  I know it's vampires and such but still it's not easy to let go of the ones you become attached to.  

  Evangeline has even more going on now than she did before.  Though she thought she was freed, not all is as it appears and life is much more dangerous now than it was.  Not only for her but for those around her.  My heart seriously goes out to that girl.  She trades one curse for another really.  The curse she now has and the secrets that she is keeping is driving a wedge between her and everyone else that was driving me crazy.  I know why she does it but I just kept on thinking that the truth would honestly set her free.  It was a big deal that didn't really need to be a big deal at all.  There are also some massive decisions that she has to make in this one and really I was happy with what she chose (minus the secret keeping).

  The romance is back and tense as ever.  Ya, I thought seeing the fact that Caden could restrain himself long enough not to eat Evangeline would free the tension but I was so wrong.  There is more than ever, due to the secrets and well a little something that I will not mention.  There also another couple added into the group and their attraction is clear as day and strong from the get go.  However it too gets tested and I was left for awhile screaming that it was okay and they would be back together in no time.  I really love that the relationships in these books aren't the main focus but they are always there in one way or another.

  Oh, there is also an addition to the team, well kind of.  He was never meant to be found and never meant to be around Evangeline but with he new problem and everything else going on, she finds him.  I do mean finds him.  Sophie had him hidden extremely well but not well enough I suppose.  This does provide some seriously comical moments for me that I am sure are meant to be serious.  I know twisted but really the guy is way too serious to take seriously for me.  Though what he can do and will do for Evangeline is 100% bone chillingly serious.

  This was by far my favourite book in this series yet!  As previously stated the development from the characters and the story itself is wonderful.  I also love that there are still new problems arising and that it isn't just the same thing over and over.  The ending left me smiling like a fool to start.  There is so much good in it but then you take the good with the bad right.  K.A. Tucker has created an engaging and addictive series and I am seriously looking forward to the next book and seeing Evangeline with her new "look".
  

Quotes
I let out a small groan.  Max was right, of course.  My stomach growled like it was going to turn zombie on itself, looking for food.

Unable to wrap my mind around the transformation, I shook my head, wondering if Sophie did in fact have an army-an army of Oompa-Loompas packed away in cupboards, waiting to serve her every whim.  It wouldn't surprise me.


"And then what?  With lurky lurker hiding behind curtains over there..." I mumbled, bitterness curling my nostrils.  "He's like herpes.  He's for life."


Max is not speaking to the traitor master right now.  Please leave a message and perhaps he will one day forgive her for her profound treachery. Beep!


I folded my arms over my chest, making it clear that this negotiation would be on my terms.  "You will give me two or I give you nothing and your balance be damned.  Read my soul, you crazy-ass faeries.  This ends here, one way or another."

  6. Okay so I haven't read any of these books but I think you may have just convinced me by using Ian Somerhalder. That's all it takes apparently.
