Book Review (265): Captive: The Forbidden Side Of Nightshade - A.D Robertson.

Captive: The Forbidden Side of Nightshade

Publication: 22nd October 2013
Publisher: Dutton Adult
Pages: 320
Genre: Paranormal/Erotica
Age Appropriate: Adult
The first adult novel set in the world of the New York Times bestselling Nightshade series, Captive delivers a steamy, forbidden romance between sworn enemies drawn together by an irrepressible desire.

Twenty-five-year-old Tristan Doran enjoys a life of incredible power and privilege. As a direct descendant of the Keepers—witches who have embraced dark magic—he defers to no one but his overlord, Lord Bosque Mar. For most of his life, Tristan has been kept out of the centuries-old Witches War, his bloodline too valuable to risk in battle.

But when a beautiful, young human Searcher named Sarah is captured and made a prisoner in his Irish castle, Tristan’s infatuation with her flings him headlong into the fray. Captive and captor, unable to contain their longing, embark on a passionate, forbidden romance together—only to learn that their love is at the heart of a prophecy predicting the downfall of the Keepers’ ages-old reign.

Captive explores the darker side of the richly imagined Nightshade universe, a fantasy world of powerful dark witches, shape-shifting wolf warriors, and fascinating history. The first of three erotic novels, Captive delves deeply into the fiery, illicit romance of two young lovers whose very desires invite their doom.
My Thoughts.
Captive: The Forbidden Side Of Nightshade, is the first book in A.D Robertson's (aka: Andrea Cremer's) adult trilogy version of her YA series Nightshade.
Full of steaminess that is too mature for her teenage audiences, this is the book that A.D wanted Nightshade to be.
A.D has crafted an incredibly scorching, steamy and hot read that will appeal to readers that enjoy their romances with a bit of spice.
Being a big fan of the Nightshade series (except the last book Bloodrose which left me bitterly disappointed) any spin-off or prequel series is welcomed and appreciated.
Held against her will by Tristan who's castle she was attempting to break into to gather information, Sarah is caught and left naked and chained to Tristan's bed, of course with them both being on opposite sides of war, Tristan as a Keeper and Sarah as a Searcher they don't expect the instant attraction and chemistry they share for one another, to spend more time with her Tristan devises a different challenge every day, winner gets to ask the loser questions and it's from these tasks that their feelings for one another grow.
But when the evil dark Lord Bosque Mar discovers the presence of a Searcher at the castle Sarah is far from safe and it's up to Tristan to figure out what he's willing to sacrifice to save the woman he loves.
I really loved this book and the addition to the Nightshade series that this is, this story relates as well to an adult version as it did told in a YA perspective and I cannot wait for the following two books.
I give this 4/5 Stars.
