The Rhyn Trilogy: Second Edition

The life of nineteen-year-old Katie rarely goes the way she wants. Just when she believes things can’t get much worse, a baby immortal claiming to be her son and death’s personal assistant appear on her doorstep. Everyone around her begins to insist she’s someone she’s not, while demons, deities and immortals threaten to tear her life – and sanity – apart.

Scared but brave, she confronts this new world head on, where she meets Immortals like Gabriel, a death dealer, and Rhyn, an outcast half-demon who claims her as his mate in a show of defiance to his Immortal half-brothers.

Determined to spite the siblings that sentenced him to Hell, Rhyn rescues Katie from the demons and discovers what everyone is after: his little human has a gift that will safeguard – or annihilate – the immortal and mortal worlds. His defiance melts into possessive protectiveness of the fiery yet vulnerable Katie as he realizes the sorry truth: he’s the only ally she’s got, and he won’t leave her high and dry the way his brothers did him.

Despite all odds, the unlikely pair begins to trust one another. Katie becomes caught up in the messy, dark political manipulations of the supernatural. The Immortals have no intention of letting her go – alive, that is, and Rhyn can only protect her if he accepts his place among the people he despises, a challenge given his status as an outcast.

Meanwhile, the demons pursuing Katie are closing in, the Immortals lying through their teeth and the deity Death playing a game no one can predict.

To save one another, they face the ultimate choice: Death or Hell. Life or Love. Katie’s life …
… or Rhyn’s.

Includes all three books in the bestselling new adult paranormal romance series, “The Rhyn Trilogy,” and the short story “Rhyn Trilogy: Origins.”

Halfway through & lost interest. It's very draining, almost all negative.
By Archivist (2.0 out of 5 stars) on February 21, 2013
(First, I did purchase this 2/3/2013, but that particular version seems have fallen off the planet. I can't even get an ASIN - I click on the product link in MC&D and I get a page not found error. But I can get to the description within the book... So, I don't know what's going on, but I don't appreciate how Amazon does this kind of thing. I can only review the item by going to a newer version, which it doesn't show I purchased.)I don't think I'm going to finish it. Initially, I liked it. There were a lot of characters and I had a little trouble keeping up with similarly named characters, but, it got better. It's a little dark. There are some things prominent in the book that some will object to. There's a lot of alcohol guzzling and violence and there's homosexuality and slavery and... I think it became a bit draining. Errors also started becoming much more prevalent by the second book. I think I made it about halfway into the trilogy and I just wasn't eager to pick it back up. Days turned to weeks and I just didn't really have a desire to go back to it. Now, I can't really remember any details, so I'm sure I'd be lost, and I really don't care to start over. I don't like leaving things unfinished, but.... There's already too much negativity in the world. I just can't see spending hours and hours purposefully subjecting myself to utterly dark characters and plots. (The stories continue beyond this trilogy, it seems.)And (minor spoilers?) I'm still wondering how Immortals can become dead dead. (Yes, "dead dead" is a term used in the books.)The author does a pretty good job of world building and character development. I just didn't end up liking anyone. And there were holes and some inconsistencies. I might have overlooked some of that had there been something more redeeming. There just wasn't. A good book has characters you want to hang out with or be like. A really good book has you thinking about the characters long after the book is over - missing old friends. (The Children of Wisdom was like that.) I can't even remember the names of any of the characters now, other than Rhyn.This one was a disappointment.

Missing words

Made this good book not so good. Rhyn and Katie are thrown together as master and slave. Katie is the antithesis of s calm compliant do whatever the master asks slave. Rhyn finds her very attractive. He and Katie start s love hate relationship that deceives no one but themselves.

and I hate to say that I somewhat don't care for one
By Victoria Cameron (3.0 out of 5 stars) on February 24, 2017
I have 20 Lizzy Ford books on my shelf, and I hate to say that I somewhat don't care for one, but I have to about this book (well, books). I liked the premise, I loved some of the characters, but this series just felt like a rough first draft. I think a lot more could have been accomplished with this story. I also felt some of the heat toward Katie was forced, like there was no substance to the argument that she was a bad person. I don't feel that the Rhyn character went through the whole process to change the way he ended up. I was also very disappointed with the editing of this book, especially since it's the second edition of all three. There were just way too many errors for a second edition.

Loved it!!

Love Katie and Rhyns story!!

Don't hesitate, you should read these books
By I read way too much…. (5.0 out of 5 stars) on March 25, 2015
This was my first exposure to Ms Ford's work, and I am very glad I picked this trilogy up. At first, I felt like I was missing part of the story, but the references to past stories intrigued me and I didn't feel like I was missing anything. I have not read the origins story (which I believe was published after this) and have not felt the lack of prequel information has affected my enjoyment of these stories. I thoroughly enjoyed the characters and the relationships (both the good and bad) and liked how the characters were all very different but felt fleshed out and complete. I read the entire trilogy in 2 evenings, and then immediately purchased the Rhyn Eternal books and devoured those as well.

This trilogy was simply amazing! I havent tired of your books and I ...

This trilogy was simply amazing! I havent tired of your books and I dont think I ever will.Lizzy your completely amazing and Im learning from the best. Such a interesting imagination,and I cant wait to read more of your books!This trilogy was very well written from beginning to end i never felt the need to stop reading but quite theopposite I couldnt stop till I was finish. Rhyn and Kate definitely had a rough life never really having the timeto stop and sit always something was amiss and thats what made this book great.My favorite character of this trilogy was Gabriel not sure but somethingabout him being brought into the book without very much detail about him sparked my interest.you did amazing keep it coming!! =)

Great buy! Couldn't stop reading 🙂

Really liked it
By Jokar (5.0 out of 5 stars) on January 16, 2015
Really like this whole series. Started a little slow and repetitive, but the story really started to develop and I was hooked. I have a habit of focusing on one author at a time and burning through whole series. I average four books a week, and was really glad I came across Lizzy Ford. Will certainly check out some of her other series.

Rhyn
