From New York Times bestselling author Thea Harrison comes the first of two explosive new stories set in the Elder Races world…. Dragos and Pia are back by popular vote!
***THIS STORY ENDS IN A CLIFFHANGER***
Saying goodbye to their old life in the Wyr demesne in New York may be hard, but Dragos and Pia are determined to create a new life in the Other land of Rhyacia.
At first, everything seems idyllic. Rhyacia is paradisiacal. Accompanied by old friends and new allies, the future looks safe and bright for Dragos, Pia, and baby Niall.
But strange things are happening beneath the picturesque façade. Items move unaccompanied, buildings collapse without justifiable cause, and even the most Powerful residents of Rhyacia can provide no logical explanation for the events transpiring. Whispered rumors point to something called the unseen.
As Dragos and Pia investigate, they uncover a greater mystery than they could have imagined, and they realize the startling truth…
They're not alone in Rhyacia. The land Dragos had thought was uninhabited hides many secrets, a shocking history that's not quite ready to be buried, and something more.
Something ancient, evil, and hungry. Something that wants to consume Dragos and take everything he holds dear.
Something that just may be powerful enough to overcome the dragon…
***This is book 1 in a series of 2 connected novellas. The first book ends in a cliffhanger.***
Beautiful, magical and dangerous world
THE UNSEEN is the first of four novellas in Thea Harrison’s contemporary, adult ELDER RACES paranormal/ fantasy romance series focusing on the former leader of the Wyr demes new in New York Drago Cuelebre, and his mate Pia.
Told from third person perspectives THE UNSEEN follows Dragos and Pia as they and 20,000 members of the supernatural Wyr begin a new life in the Other land of Rhycia but not all goes according to plan when an unseen force begins to cause a disturbance within the new society-misplaced items, collapsing buildings, and a threat to the life and personal safety of Dragos Cuelebre. Desperate to protect the man that she loves, Pia calls for assistance from Dragos current and former guardians and warriors, assistance that may be needed to save the life of the man that she loves.
THE UNSEEN is a welcome return and revisit to the Elder Races series. With a large ensemble cast of familiar secondary and supporting characters THE UNSEEN pulls the reader into a beautiful, magical but dangerous world of the ‘unseen’, whose actions are threatening the very existence of the eldest and most powerful dragon in this world and the Other. With a little bit of drama, intrigue, fun and familiarity, THE UNSEEN ends on a cliff hanger-you have been warned.
I love Dragos and Pia!
This short novella is the first in a series of four linked stories about Dragos and Pia. The author warns us that unlike her previous books and novellas, there will be cliffhangers!
Thea Harrison has, as always, delivered an irresistible story filled with dynamic characters. It's so nice to return to Dragos and Pia's story line. Many of my other favourite characters make an appearance, including Aryal and her penchant for both loyalty and chaos. This novella is set as they move into a new life in Rhyacia, with all the challenges included with leaving home and starting over in a new place. The love between Dragos and Pia shines through, captured poignantly by the author's words. “It filled him, those moments, in a way that nothing had ever filled him before, not war and killing, not even sex and mating. Peace poured into his cranky old soul.” This a the start of a great series, and I can't wait for the next one to be released!
