#Bookreview of PURSUED: Brides of the Kindred by Evangeline Anderson

PURSUED: Brides of the Kindred by Evangeline Anderson


Elise is fractured inside, stained by a past she refuses to remember.

Merrick is scarred both inside and out, a half-breed with a brutal background, at home nowhere in the universe.

Now they are tied together by an unstable bond which could kill them both.

Their journey will take them to the lawless planet of Rageron—the wildest of all the Kindred worlds. There, in the deep blue jungles of an alien world, Elise must bare her soul and relive the horror that nearly killed her. Can she and Merrick make each other whole or will Elise run from her pain?

If she does, Merrick cannot help but chase her…Elise is being Pursued.

This is the 6th book in the Brides of the Kindred series. You will need to read Claimed, Hunted, Sought, Found, and Revealed, also by Evangeline Anderson in order to understand it.


This book deals with Elise and Merrick, who were introduced as minor characters in a few past stories.  Elsie was kidnapped by the AllFather and Merrick rescued her from the stasis chamber she had hidden away in.  What they didn’t know was, when he released her, it caused a stasis bonding between them that could end up be deadly for both of them.  So they need to find a certain plant on the Kindred home world to deactivate the bonding.  What makes the whole story unique, is that Merrick is a hybrid Kindred, a cross between a Blood and Beast Kindred.  Because of their hybrid nature, they can never bond with a female, so Merrick will do anything not to give up a bond he thought he’d never share with a female.  But, he also doesn’t want to jeopardize Elise’s life.  Oh, the quandary. 

This book deals with sexual abuse between child and trusted adult, so some people may not want to read this story, but what happened to Elsie defines her in her adult life, so it’s a necessary evil you have to read.  And that’s what brings Merrick and Elsie together, their deep, mental scars. 

This book is just as rich in detail, and characterization as the other books.  We do some more planet hopping, and get a better look at the new threat to the Universe, The Hoard and their leader, Draven. He is a true bad boy.  I have noticed that Evangeline has backed off somewhat from all the sex scenes.  Maybe because she’s already shown the different bonding sex for the different Kindred warriors. 

Book 6 was a satisfying read, and I look forward to the next one in the series.  I give it 4 feathers.

About Sahara Foley

Bio: Until my husband died on Christmas 2012, I never thought about becoming a writer. In fact, the act of writing a story terrified me. Don’t get me wrong, I loved reading, just never had the knack for writing. The thought of writing dialogue scared the bejeebers out of me. See, Bob was the writer. He wrote stories for years but could never get a traditional publisher interested enough to publish even one. Now I understand why, as they were unpolished outlines. Then, after 30 years together, Bob passed away and my life was turned upside down. About a month later, I was sitting around my apartment, trying to adjust to the worst event in my life, when a little voice spoke to me. Why not publish Bob’s stories? To be truthful, ever since the advent of self-publishing, I always wanted too, that’s how much I believed in his stories. But I knew I would have to fight him for every little change I made to his outlines. Sorry, honey, but they had to be done. So, I pulled out the box of stories, dusted them off, and started on a new adventure: The World of Self-Publishing. Boy, did I have a lot to learn. I finally published several short stories early in 2014, then my horror novella, It Lives in the Basement. While I was working on them, I was slowly learning the craft of writing, and getting The Secret of Excalibur ready for publication. Excalibur was my favorite story of them all, and in the back of my mind, I knew I wanted a publisher. One day on Twitter, I ran across a tweet from Creativia Publishing, and that was another game changer for me. I signed up with them in December of 2014, and it was the best decision I’ve made. One thing I’ve discovered on my new adventure, are all the really awesome and talented Indie Authors. If you find the right community of Indie Authors, all they want to do is help each other. I found that I love promoting them and their books, so that’s how I setup my blog. For readers to meet Indie Authors. Anyway, enough about me.
