Book Review: The Forbidden Side of Nightshade

Captive: The Forbidden Side of Nightshade (Forbidden Side of Nightshade #1) by

Captive: The Forbidden Side of NightshadeThe first adult novel set in the world of the New York Times bestselling Nightshade series, Captive delivers a steamy, forbidden romance between sworn enemies drawn together by an irrepressible desire.

Twenty-five-year-old Tristan Doran enjoys a life of incredible power and privilege. As a direct descendant of the Keepers—witches who have embraced dark magic—he defers to no one but his overlord, Lord Bosque Mar. For most of his life, Tristan has been kept out of the centuries-old Witches War, his bloodline too valuable to risk in battle.

But when a beautiful, young human Searcher named Sarah is captured and made a prisoner in his Irish castle, Tristan’s infatuation with her flings him headlong into the fray. Captive and captor, unable to contain their longing, embark on a passionate, forbidden romance together—only to learn that their love is at the heart of a prophecy predicting the downfall of the Keepers’ ages-old reign.

Captive explores the darker side of the richly imagined Nightshade universe, a fantasy world of powerful dark witches, shape-shifting wolf warriors, and fascinating history. The first of three erotic novels, Captive delves deeply into the fiery, illicit romance of two young lovers whose very desires invite their doom.

The first ever adult book set in the Nightshade world!!! I'm always excited for popular YA books to convert or have an adult world perspective. There's a lot more you can roam around in . . .

Tristan have dealt with being secluded from the outside world, his family's blood is deemed like royalty and a prophecy that he might be a part of. 

Sarah is a searcher on a mission to figure out the Keepers (her enemies) their secrets anything about their weakness and their plans. 

Sarah is in someway taken from her mission when she is capture, but what she didn't expect was to have some hidden passion and desires for Tristan.

Tristan doubtfully play games towards Sarah but he too starts to feel something, but can he fall for someone that's suppose to be his enemy?

A.D present a new taste of the Nightshade world and  prophecy that could change everything.

I give this Five Cat's Tails UP, I've been looking forward to this book for awhile and meeting new characters is a huge PLUS! Tristan and Sarah has instant connection and the love that's so forbidden could change everything. 

MEOW . . . MEOW . . . MEOW
Wow believe it or not, I really really enjoy this book . . . I was really worry for some reasons that I wouldn't like the adult version of Nightshade but the plots oh my god how insane! 

I like the fact that it was a dual Point of View, you could follow Sarah's point of view very clearly as well Tristan's these two have insane chemistry from the beginning although Sarah was a little expose due to a wicked person wanting to embarrassed her. 

Sarah is a very ambitious searcher, she took a stand alone mission because she the most trained and experience person facing the dangers. But her biggest threat is not Tristan . . . but it's her heart. Tristan is the same way except he's has to be more careful because of the prophecy that he never believe in until he realizes that it was happening right in front of him.

Now I'm not going to title "Let talk about S-E-X" but really it was very well written, nothing was ever forced to made the characters have the "NEED" and force the scene. The passion grew gradually as one thing lead to another, what I found so cliche was the whole virgin thing and Tristan being a jerk walking away but don't worry I forgave him sort of . . .

Sarah never thought in a million years that she would fall for her enemy or "supposed" enemy but she just couldn't believe that Tristan was bad or evil. Lord Mar was worry about people finding out about Tristan bloodline and use it against him. 

They will stand for their love for each other even if they are the prophecy but the battle between the Keepers and Searchers have only just begun.
