    1. In a world of dark magic what is terrifying?Another great high fantasy adventure story with world building that incorporates demons, mages, priests, blood servants, and a host of other mythical creatures. Strong martial component as Raffe becomes a Blood Prince, bound to protect the land and serve the king. In traditional hero journey format, you have the unprepared suddenly thrust into his powers and all the challenges that ensue from exploring/controlling them to love to duty to the dark threa [...]

    2. I wanted to give this story a 4-stars, I really did. I loved the world that Megan Derr has created and the plot here was quite complex. We had a character with personal journey. We had characters with different powers. We had a threat to a Kingdom. The fight between bad and evil. It was imaginative and complicated Unfortunately, for me, it never lived up to its potential. It could've been better. It could've been epic. However, there were too many issues that just reduced my experience and my ra [...]

    3. Reviewed for Prism Book Alliance4.5 StarsOf Last Resort was my first Megan Derr experience and let me tell you she grabbed me by the throat and shoved my face in this book. And I loved it. Every minute of it. I really did try to stop reading it-I have a kazillion other things to read, but I simply could not put it down. It went a little something like, 'Just one more chapter and then that's it! Well, I can't stop now I'm a 90%! That would just be silly.' And… here we are.There is too much to l [...]

    4. This is a great fantasy story, really stellar story telling. I loved the plot and the whole concept just kept me turning pages. I couldn't put this one down because I was straight up scared what was going to happen to the MCs. There was an interesting spin on dragons as well. Raffé and "Cambord" were great togetherwhen they were together but this is more a fantasy story with a side of M/M. No complaints here, I adored it.

    5. This review can be found at The Blogger Girls review site.4.5 starsWow, this book was just… amazing. From the beginning I was intrigued by the tale Ms. Derr was weaving but as the story progressed, I became more and more engrossed in the dangerous world that harbors so many varied but deadly creatures.I can’t even begin to describe just what that world is so I will leave you to find out. What I will say is that this book contains a lot of different elements: a wish granted, a night of debauc [...]

    6. When I was in sixth grade we were forced to undertake a dissection of a frog. I’ll leave out a lot of the squidgy details, but let’s just say that it was pretty much a forgone conclusion after that, that I wouldn’t be becoming a doctor when I grew up. But after all of the cutting and pinning was finished, and all the “oh my god oh my god oh my god ewewewewew!!!” was done, I was left peering over the shoulder of my lab partner and down at something both incredibly foreign and strangely [...]

    7. 2.5I'm generally a big fan of this author, but I found this book extremely frustrating. The initial premise was strong and the early scenes very promising (and sexy), but from the moment Raffe became a demon, the problems started, as the reader is dropped into an extremely complex world of demons and magical creatures, with character after character introduced with no time to differentiate them, either in their personalities or their magical abilities. Seeing more of Raffe's actual training--and [...]

    8. I do love Megan Derr's books. The Kria books are forever my favorites and so is The Infinitum Government Series.This, however, is turning into pure horror: zombies, demons, flying spiders that are actually angels; there is barely enough interaction between gay protagonists to make it into m/m romance category.If I knew differently going in, if maybe I read the tags and warnings and reviews, I would have been prepared better. Keep in mind tho, that it's mostly me, not the book, because: - Horror [...]

    9. I really debated on the rating for this book - I enjoyed the story and will probably read more in the series but I won't be waiting for bated breath for them to appear, so therefore gave the book 3 stars.I quite enjoy fantasy books and Megan Derr is a solid author in this genre, in my opinion, so I expected to love this book. There were just enough problems that kept me from loving it and therefore rating it higher, however. I think my biggest issue is something that comes up often when there's [...]

    10. 4.5 StarsI. Loved. This. Story. It was complex and full of colorful characters. The incredible world building and suspenseful plot had me on the edge of my seat and I finished this book in one sitting. The switching POV made the reveal of Raffé's late night rendezvous slightly anti-climactic but it still worked. The only reason that I didn't give this one five stars was the ending. Don't get me wrong, it worked out but I didn't like the comment that (view spoiler)[Korin and Telmé could not hav [...]

    11. I do love a great fantasy and this was excellent, I was happy that I picked well for a trilogy as I enjoyed Book #1 immensely, but I should have researched the series further as it's PRN which I DESPISE. This is my pet hate though but I'll explain why. There is only one PRN author duet I'll read and that's Illona Andrew's. I won't read anymore from this series as I personally don't think PRN should be considered a series unless they're structured the way Illona Andrew's does it, I have been let [...]

    12. 2.5 starsYou can't cram 14 branches of King's Legion, a bunch of characters (20 of whom appear throughout the whole book), even more creatures and monsters of all kinds, magic, demons, angels and whatnot in 200 pagesyou just can't. This could have been much better if it was longer for at least 200 more pages. This way I was confused half of the time, I never managed to remember who all the characters were - which branch they belonged to, let alone how they looked like. And for all the talk about [...]

    13. Of Last Resort was a lovely read, certainly different from what we normally see. Nothing is as it seems and Light Magic can be just as bad as Dark Magic can be good. The story has a interesting plot with kick-ass characters that you just can't help but like. At the same time I felt that the author wanted to tell an overly complex story on just too few pages. While this is no short story, sometimes the focus of the story/plot was in the wrong places, hence the characters never reaching their full [...]

    14. 4.45Yes, this is a very high rating, but I'm not entirely satisfied, and I need to point that out first. The thing is, the story and the ideas here were too good not to rate as high as I did, but in truth, the execution fell short sometimes. I loved the general story idea - a character overlooked and ignored rising to new personal strength and power to become the leader he was meant to be. Hach. The bread and butter of epic fantasy. You gotta love it.The world building was excellent. The world a [...]

    15. 2.5 starsPusing pala barbie baca buku ini.The prologue and first chapters were promising and exciting for me. I mean, to learn our MC Raffe's new life, the newly awakened young vampire, how this newbie vampire copes with his new identity, his powers/magics, his trainings, his friendship with other vampires/Princes and other 13 branches in this complex world, and also his relationship with Cambord/his lover, and not to mention the chance to know more about 14 branches (Dragoons, Titans, Summoners [...]

    16. First read May 2014re-read Feb 2016I have read a number of Megan Derr's shorter stories and this was my first full length novel. She excels in world building and making you feel for her characters.Raffe is a second son and expected to do nothing more than become a husband and accountant, but when his brother flees the night before he's due to become a Prince of The Blood, Raffe volunteers to take his place - this changing his entire future. He must learn to control the magic and other skills he [...]

    17. I had high hopes for a magic-heavy fantasy novel with a gay protagonist, and Of Last Resort didn't disappoint! There's plenty of magic, and I particularly enjoyed the glimpse of all the different varieties - and factions of the Legion that use those different types - at the beginning. Our protagonist has demonic-derived powers, but others use holy power, are shapeshifters, or something else entirely.The romance is definitely the secondary plot of the book, but I actually like that so it was a se [...]

    18. Gave Of Last Resort a rating of 4.5 Stars on my blog.Originally read this book last year for the first time, but ended up re-reading it again on Jan 17, 2015 because I got my hands on the "sequels-that-are-actually-prequels" (With Pride and In Despair) and needed a refresher. And since it is still technically a read for the year, I'm also letting it count in my tally for a couple different 2015 reading challenges I'm participating in.You can find my original review for it on my blog:Reckless Ind [...]

    19. I seriously don't know what to say. LOL. While it is not my most favorite Megan Derr book, Of Last Resort still rendered me speechless and it took me a few days before reading another book again. I don't know why. But sometimes, after reading a Megan Derr book, I don't want to read another book right after. As I close this book, I wondered why in hell I waited for a few days before reading this. I should've read it right after I downloaded it from LT3's serials section. But then again, I wanted [...]

    20. Rating 5 stars out of 5Of Last Resort is another magnificent, riveting tale of magic by that master of fantasy, Megan Derr. Her world building is incomparable as is her ability to set the stage for the magical pyrotechnics and emotional journey that is to follow. A true page turner,her story will keep the reader deeply involved and emotionally committed to Raffe' and his journey to love and power.For my full review visit wp/p220KL-21iAnother ScatteredThoughtsandRogueWords review.

    21. 4.5 starsPowerful book. Completely different world with different religion and yet the same names we use on earth for the inhabitants. Star crossed lovers seemly destined to never be together. The possibility that the entire world will end and a new reign of darkness will decend. Major transformations from doubt to leadership and love.Yet there is something missing. It's fairly long but with the breadth of the plot and world building it should have been longer. But it is a very well done book.I [...]

    22. Pretty interesting world building, and great pacing. The characterization was compelling enough, though somewhat light, to keep me entertained throughout. I was surprised by the sudden POV switch several chapters in, but was glad for it, ultimately, as I eventually found Alrin more fascinating, character-development wise.

    23. I can't say I always understood what was happening or why, particularly towards the end, but I did enjoy the read. The characters were fantastic. I loved the concept of the world, the Legion, and the prince's of the blood.

    24. Хуже, чем ее первые вещи, но намного, намного лучше того, что она писала в последние полгода-год. Непритязательная фентези с очевидным заделом на большую серию.

    25. LovelyI cannot believe I overlooked Fred's Princes of Blood stories for so long. I actually got interested in Derr's unique brand of style with Kristof and Hakon's story a couple of years ago, then got sidetracked by her tales of some unicorn and fantastical shifter creature and Sarrica and Allen's The King's Golden Tongue until Korin and Telme's story threw me so off track, I lost my taste for the Princes of Blood. I had, unfortunately, or fortunately as the case may be, already purchased all t [...]

    26. I don’t know that I’ve ever felt more conflicted about a review. Partly because I really loved this story and its setting, and partly because Megan Derr is a fairly terrific writer, but also because Megan Derr is a master at short stories. I’ve read dozens of hers, singly and in collections, and I’m consistently impressed. Writing a successful short story requires a certain economy of language.One of the reasons I feel so ambivalent about this book is that she seems to have applied those [...]

    27. Beautifully done, masterfully written The perfect mix of story and romance. The two main characters and love interests were a beautiful pairing and it was nice to see raffe get what he wanted.There was a lot of name dropping for characters that were of minor importance but then tended to reappear so it was rather easy to mix certain characters up, I did find that annoying.Overall I would recommend this book as it is a nice take on MM fantasy romance without the constant sex scenes.

    28. WOW, what a good bookIf you like Megan Derr or even paranormal books, you will love this one. It is fast paced but wonderfully written. There are so many well written characters it was hard to pick a favorite.

    29. The story went a route I really didn’t think it would go and it was amazing. I really enjoyed this and it had me at the edge of my seat as the story progressed.

    30. Fantastic setting and really liked the set up.In a few places the book slightly lagged, but towards the last third of the book the pace was really good.
