Book Review: Parallel Desire by Deidre Knight
Midnight Warriors series #4
Two wounded hearts find each other amidst a world-changing battle.
When I finished Parallel Seduction, I knew I have to find the next book fast and soon. So I was lucky, that when I made my weekly trip to the local library, I found Parallel Desire, sitting on its shelf, as if simply waiting for me. I resisted doing a happy dance, as I greedily snatched it, and put it in my overflowing basket of books.
Parallel Desire picks up immediately right where Parallel Seduction ends. Now time-traveler Scott Dillon, in his wife’s murderer’s body, is stranded in the past, trying to find a purpose for his own existence. With Hope, his wife, now happily mated to his younger self, he has decided that eliminating his wife’s future killer, will be the best way to secure her safety in this current timeline. Together, with medic Shelby Tyler, Scott embarks on a journey that will lead them into the hands of their enemies. As the battle between Refarians and Antousians continues to rage, Scott will be forced to embrace his own hybrid nature, heal his own hurts, and discover a new capacity to love.
I cannot say enough good things about this series, and after reading this fourth book, it is definitely in my top ten list. I enjoyed reading about this other Scott Dillon, the one that has experienced pain and loss, and his relationship with Shelby, who has experienced the same traumatic events in her own life. I also like the continuation of Jared and Kelsey’s story, and even Thea and Marco’s. It is like reading a new story while hanging out with old friends.
To those who haven’t read this series, and if you are into sci-fi romance, I highly recommend that you give this one a try. Definitely worth the read.
