Paniha's Taniwha by A.W. Exley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
So, as a huge fan of the Artifact Hunter series, I've been DYING for Loki to get his own story, showcasing his wild nature and his bad boy fun pirate side. A.W. Exley has delivered and surpassed my expectations!
First, let's start with the beautiful cover!!! I am really digging the new covers for the series, and this one is no exception.
Now, on to story. We've got wit. We've got charm. We've got adventure in the wilds of New Zealand. We've got beautiful native maidens and strong half-naked muscular warriors. Throwing Loki into this mixture? EXPLOSIVE. Did I mention that when the romance threads of this one finally come to a head, it's one of the hottest things I've ever read? And that is including the lady bits (which I'm not really a fan of in general *shudders*)... but knowing Loki from the main books in the series, the way this worked out felt very natural for his story. And I'm not going to lie, I'd kill for a Hone of my own!!!
Now I want a Nate, a Loki, and a Hone (collect the whole set? haha!).
If you like steampunk with adventure, a little magic/supernatural, do YOURSELF a favor and pick up the Artifact Hunters. You won't be disappointed... at least not until you realize that the series is finished (I'm still hoping for more!!!).
Special thanks to the author for providing me with a review copy of this novella in exchange for an honest review.
