The Guess that Book has been guessed

And it was guessed by Rosario.

It is indeed Lord of the Storm by Justine Davis

Yep, despite this really (really, really, really) bad cover, this is one of my favourite Futuristics. I didn't realize how old it was until I went looking for reviews! Written in 1994, it's still one of the better ones of the genre, despite the really (really, really, really) bad cover and I've read it a number of times now.

Congrats to Rosario and for those curious, here are the rest of the clues

7. His world has been destroyed and he thinks it’s gone for good

8. She saves him from a fate worse than death and finally takes him home.

I'll have another one to give out starting Monday

'til later

Woohoo!!! Thanks, Kristie, you made my day!

I agree that LOTS was a really, really, really good book. I didn't discover it until a few years after it came out, but it's one of my faves.

This one is delicious isn't it? And I loved Sky Pirate just as much. Too bad we never got that third book I think she was planning on writing *heavy sigh*

I love Lord of the Storm and The Skypirate! They have been on my Keeper shelves forever!

I miss Justine Davis...I know she's still writing some but I haven't enjoyed her more recent stuff. :o( Her old Desires and SIMs were excellent, too.

"I miss Justine Davis"

Me too :( I feel the same way you do. Her books don't have the same feel to them anymore. Besides LOTS and SP, I really enjoyed her Hawk series. Again I heard she planned to write a story on the wizard and the bird, but her publisher said no (fools). I've also got a lot of her series books too, Hunter's Way, Stevies Chase, Errant Angel, The Morning Side Of Dawn. Now those were excellent books!!
I think she started changing her style after she finished the Trinity series. She had a few RS but I think that's when the tone started changing. I was only meh on her last single release - and that was a few years ago now. And I tried one of the Redstone books but it ended up being DNF.

I got her names mixed up and remember this one under her Dare name.

I'm one of those who miss this author's unique voice also. These futuristics were written well before the sci-fi/paranormal phase we are in now. It was like finding little diamond deposits with these books.

*sigh* Those who blazed the path have now moved on.

I would have never guessed this ~ I don't think I've read a futuristic book before. It sounds interesting.

Kristie (J) said...

Dev: If you're going to give them a try, this would be an excellent one to start with ;) A hero who was a prince in his own world who's been reduced to a sex slave. It's a nice twist in that the heroine rescues the hero rather than the other way around. But not to worry, Wolf turns out to be plenty alpha.
I'm sure this one is out of print but might not be too hard to find in a UBS.

Cindy: "*sigh* Those who blazed the path have now moved on."
So true. There aren't many still writing futuristics that wrote them during what I think was the first wave. For example I have an old Futuristic by Sherrilyn Kenyon. Now she hasn't written them for a while
