A Lila Review: Prince of Land and Fire (Three Brothers Fair Book 2) by Emily Carrington

Rating: 2.5 stars out of 5

prince-of-land-and-fireAgainst his will, Lord Tian has fallen for a magical land creature–a gnome. A prophecy says he must wed a land creature and become a destroyer and spy. But he can’t resist Alastair or the BDSM games they play.

Alastair is trying to spy on Tian’s mother and preserve the balance of the natural world. Needing Tian in his bed and in his heart does nothing but disrupt his plans.

But prophecies are often right–and misunderstood. When Tian and Alastair play at BDSM and love they set in motion the destruction of the status quo.

Prince of Land and Fire takes place years after Prince of Seas and follows a similar structure. By now we know about the prophecy and which element belongs to each prince. Tian is the middle triplet and is destined to marry a land creature and become destroyer and spy. Just like we learned before, things didn’t go as planned.

I really enjoyed Tian and Alastair, and how good they were together. They both longed for the perfect balance between pain and pleasure, but they had a lot to figure out before they were able to explore their relationship. The BDSM element is an integral part of the story and can be difficult to understand without the story context.

This story had potential, but some of the events took away from it. Everything Alastair endures and how he’s treated by his parents seemed too extreme for what he needed to accomplish. Tian’s mom got more over the top, and the small amount of time Tian and Alastair spent together wasn’t enough to compensate for the rest.

It was nice to see and get updates from the characters in the previous book. No matter the lower rating in this installment, I’m looking forward to the next one.

Another beautiful cover by Fiona Jayde. It makes Prince of Seas but still looks contemporary.

By Scattered Thoughts

At over 50, I am ruled by my terriers, my gardens, and my projects. A knack for grubbing about in the woods, making mud pies, and tending to the injured worms, bugs, and occasional bird and turtle growing up eventually led me to working for the Parks. I was a park Naturalist for over 20 years, and observing Nature and her cycles still occupy my hours. From the arrival of Ruby-throated Hummingbirds in the Spring to the first call of the Snow Geese heading south in the Fall, I am entranced by the seasons. For more about me see my bio on my blog.
