Rapture by Quinn Loftis - Blog Tour - Review

Rapture (Elfin Series Book 2)
By Quinn Loftis


Triktapic, the deadly dark elf assassin, has been restored by the Forest Lords to his rightful place as king of the Elven realm. Now, he must face his former comrades as he attempts to stop Lorsan, king of the dark elves, from enslaving the human race. Lorsan has already begun distributing Rapture, the irresistible drink that destroys those who unknowingly become addicted to it. Will Cassie, his Chosen, be able to give Trik the strength he needs to face his dark past?

Meanwhile, Cassie’s best friend, Elora, is in a fight for her own life. Elora, her mother, Lisa, and a small band of light elves have traveled deep into the dark elf realm in hopes of rescuing Cassie and Trik. But their mission quickly turns into a battle for their own lives as they are surrounded by Lorsan and his warriors. Though outnumbered ten to one, the humans and elves fight heroically. They fight for a King once lost, but now found. They fight for the human realm that doesn’t yet know it is in need of saving. They fight for love; a love that has already been discovered and a love that is waiting to be revealed. Despite their valiant efforts, the band is captured and held captive by the dark elf king.

The peaceful world that Cassie and Elora knew is long gone, shattered by their realization that elves walk secretly among them, and are bent on their destruction. Soon, each of the girls will be forced to choose her own path. Cassie must decide to which world she belongs and Elora must decide if she 
will fight for a warrior hell bent on keeping her from his side.

Two species, human and elf, stand on the precipice of war, united in one goal; shatter the dark elf king’s plan, and unite a divided race under the rule of the one true King.


“You’re mine, Cassie, my Chosen. I cannot do what it is I have to do without you.” He felt emotions that seemed to have been building all day begin to rush through him and he was nearly overwhelmed. He cupped her face and leaned down and pressed his lips to hers. He shouldn’t be lying here with the most incredibly sweet woman he’d ever met. He didn’t deserve her, and yet, he wouldn’t let her go, not ever.
Cassie moaned as Trik kissed her. If there was one thing her assassin could do, it was kiss. His lips worked a spell over her as she parted her lips for him. The taste of him rushed into her and she pushed closer to him, needing to feel him against her—needing to know that she was safe and that Trik wouldn’t let anything happen to her. His arms wrapped around her and he rolled them so that she was on top of him. She laughed into their kiss at the quick motion, and when she opened her eyes, she saw his silver ones staring back at her.
“You’re so beautiful, A’maelamin,” he whispered to her.
She felt his hands run down her back and stop at the lowest point of the small of her back. She would like to say that she was feeling virtuous, but that would be a big, fat lie. She wiggled against him and 
Trik groaned and gripped her hips suddenly, holding her still.
“You know what they say about those who play with fire?” Trik asked her in a dangerously low and utterly seductive voice.
Cassie leaned down until her mouth was next to his ear. “That they’re begging to be burned?”

Nikki's Review:

5 stars!!

Quinn Loftis never ceases to amaze me!  Her writing is addictive. The world's she creates with simply words always sucks me right in. Rapture is no different. I've been looking forward to this book for the last year after devouring Elfin. I fell for Trik and wanted more! While Rapture mainly focuses on Cassie's best friend, Elora and light elf warrior Cush, there are plenty of scenes involving  Cassie and Trik and their evolving relationship.

I really enjoyed getting to read and learn more about the ever sarcastic best friend  of the future Queen of Elves. I wanted a best friend like Elora when I read Elfin and nothing changed while 
reading Rapture. There is so much more to her than anyone could realize and several times  I found my mouth hanging open at some revelations during this book. 
Oh, and let's not forget about  Cush.  He's every bit as dreamy and Alpha as Trik including badass warrior skills.  Definitely swoon-worthy. Quinn never disappoints with her Alpha males. They always top my lists! 
We also get to meet Elora's brother, Oakley. I really want to see more of him. We also get to see more of Tony, Trik's friend and Casino manger in Las Vegas. I hope his story is going where I want it too. ;)
Rapture is action-packed, laugh out loud funny, with some swoony romance. I'm eagerly awaiting the next book! I can't wait to find out what happens. I NEED to know what's coming  next!  Quinn, keep the amazing work coming!
