Rapture (Elfin Series Book 2)
By Quinn Loftis
Triktapic, the deadly dark elf assassin, has been restored by the Forest Lords to his rightful place as king of the Elven realm. Now, he must face his former comrades as he attempts to stop Lorsan, king of the dark elves, from enslaving the human race. Lorsan has already begun distributing Rapture, the irresistible drink that destroys those who unknowingly become addicted to it. Will Cassie, his Chosen, be able to give Trik the strength he needs to face his dark past?
Meanwhile, Cassie’s best friend, Elora, is in a fight for her own life. Elora, her mother, Lisa, and a small band of light elves have traveled deep into the dark elf realm in hopes of rescuing Cassie and Trik. But their mission quickly turns into a battle for their own lives as they are surrounded by Lorsan and his warriors. Though outnumbered ten to one, the humans and elves fight heroically. They fight for a King once lost, but now found. They fight for the human realm that doesn’t yet know it is in need of saving. They fight for love; a love that has already been discovered and a love that is waiting to be revealed. Despite their valiant efforts, the band is captured and held captive by the dark elf king.
The peaceful world that Cassie and Elora knew is long gone, shattered by their realization that elves walk secretly among them, and are bent on their destruction. Soon, each of the girls will be forced to choose her own path. Cassie must decide to which world she belongs and Elora must decide if she will fight for a warrior hell bent on keeping her from his side.
Two species, human and elf, stand on the precipice of war, united in one goal; shatter the dark elf king’s plan, and unite a divided race under the rule of the one true King.
KIM: Omg JAIME!! Did you read Rapture by Quinn Loftis? It was sooooo good!
JAIME: Did you just ask me if I read Rapture? Of course I did!! You and I have much to discuss my dear...
KIM: Oh don't I know! We can't discuss too much so don't get all carried away over there.
JAIME: Poop, fine okay you win, not too many details...
KIM: *sighs in relief* Okay I have to tell you that Elora is my favorite character! She has got some balls!!
JAIME: YES she does and I can the sparks flying around with her and Cush! total swoonsville!
KIM: ooohh yeeessss those two are about to set the world on fire! You know what? This was a such a great read I am so ready for the next one already. You can never go wrong with anything by Quinn.
JAIME: I agree with you there. She has never let us down at all. I am dying to know what happens next. So many things can go right or wrong from here on out. Hopefully the Forest Gods are on Trik's side!
KIM: I do hope so too. Also, there's the romance of the bond that makes me sigh with the "I wants too."
JAIME: HAHAHHAAH Me too but I think my husband would go crazy with all the things that go on in my mind. Lists, what to clean, what book is next to read, which review needs to be written and all that stuff.
KIM: YEAAAAAH, second thought on that one...
JAIME: HA thought so :p
KIM: Anyway. So the group is divided but not by choice, Cassie and Trik are stuck in the Elf Realm trying to save their world while Elora and Cush are stuck in the mortal realm trying to figure out a way to get rid of Rapture once and for all. It's not an easy feat either they have enemies on both sides of the realms. Both are ready for war.
JAIME: yes! So much action and turns of events happen here. No one will be disappointed. Kim and I were both unable to put this book down, messaging each other in the middle of the night asking where we were and going, wait til you get here_________. LOL Good times my friends good times!!
KIM: You will not be disappointed with this book by any means so go ahead and get your copy now:
Happy reading everyone!!!
“No comments on saving the world, huh?” Elora asked sarcastically.
“I think it goes without saying that I and my sword are capable of saving the world,” Cush answered.
Elora was struck mute by the sheer confidence he exuded. She was trying really hard to not want him, and if he wasn’t so self-assured, handsome, calm under pressure, and funny—in a totally unexpected way—she’d be doing alright. But he was all of those things and he kept saying things that threw her off balance. She glanced at him from the corner of her eye. Bad move genius, she told herself. Rule number one; do not look at the hotness. Okay, maybe this could work if she could just set up some ground rules for herself. She could call them: Rules to stay un-elfed. She mentally smiled at her made up title and then mentally kicked herself for basically have a conversation with herself, complete with laughing at her own jokes. She settled down into her seat without responding to his sharp, witty, and admittedly hilarious comment.
“Wake me when we get to the restaurant,” Elora said to no one in particular.
“Elora, it will take all of five minutes to get to a place to eat,” Lisa pointed out.
What Elora wanted to say was, that’s five minutes too many to be stuck in this ride with the only guy she had ever met that made her want to bat her eye lashes and giggle like a moron, but what she actually said was, “Five minutes of sleep is better than none.” Witty? No. Drama free? At least on the outside she was.
