Blurb (from Goodreads):
*Beware of spoilers if you haven’t read the previous books in this series.*
Myla Lewis has married Prince Lincoln, and now they’re expecting! All the after-realms rejoice. Myla should be happy too, but she has a serious problem. The day after their honeymoon ended, Myla’s real husband disappeared.
The man who’s sharing her bed is an imposter.
Myla tries explaining about “Evil Lincoln,” but no one will listen. The reason? People think that Myla’s supernatural pregnancy is making her cray cray. Mostly because that’s what Evil Lincoln is telling everyone, and that man’s a great liar. What a creep.
There’s no way Myla will take this lying down, though. She’s going to rescue her man, and she has a pretty good idea where he’s being held. With her best friend, Cissy, along to help, Myla sneaks off to Earth. All she has to do is blend in with the humans, avoid Evil Lincoln, and find her real man before the baby arrives. How hard can it be?
Like the previous books in this series, Thrax was a compelling and a fun read. I was hooked from the very start and this book did not fail to surprise me. I enjoyed the ride pretty much throughout the book!
After going through so much together, Myla and Lincoln are finally married and they are expecting. But something goes horribly wrong after their honeymoon. Lincoln is there but he is not her Lincoln. It doesn’t take her much time to understand her real husband is somewhere else and she has to face yet another evil ploy. With the help of her best friend, will Myla be able to rescue Lincoln before it’s too late?
What I love the most about this series is, it’s such a fun and fast read. Another thing that I liked about the writing was that the action sequences were the most fun to read, usually they not my most favourites but in this book it definitely was. Once you start the book, it’s pretty impossible to put it down, I ended up finishing it in two sittings. Thrax started off with Lincoln and Myla’s honeymoon which is soon disrupted after a particular incident where real Lincoln is replaced by “Evil Lincoln”. It was pretty easy to tell he was not the real guy because the real Lincoln would never behave or treat Myla like Evil Lincoln did.
Myla is a kickass heroine, she is not someone who is willing to just sit and watch. She believes action speaks better than empty words and so she set sail for an adventure. Of course, Cissy is there to help her, she’s the best! I love how she believed her about Lincoln when nobody else would. Myla’s experience on Earth is different and the enemy is more powerful which brings forth a new challenge for Myla. I loved her character growth throughout the book. She really turned from the Great Scala to a Queen. She didn’t back down even though too much was at stake, even her unborn baby but she fought back for what was right. And as always, I loved Lincoln, he was there beside Myla in whatever decision he took, I loved his unconditional love and support towards her.
The only thing I found a little unrealistic is that Myla is kinda perfect in every way even though she evolved a lot in this book. Also, I thought after everything Lincoln went through he would be weak but it seemed nothing could weaken him a bit because he fought side by side after his rescue. Anyway, I still loved these characters to bits!! Evil Lincoln was seriously irritating and so was Ethan. That guy! Seriously, I didn’t expect him to go to that extent but oh well. He definitely got what he deserved!
Overall, Thrax was an engaging read. I loved how the plot was executed and the characters kept me interested throughout the book. I enjoyed the action and the adventure. The writing was smooth and easy to read and it was fast-paced throughout the book. I am definitely looking forward to the next book in this series!
