Review of:  Malachite by Michele Notaro & Sammi Cee

TITLE: Malachite
AUTHOR: Michele Notaro & Sammi Cee
SERIES: Brotherhood of Ormarr
GENRE: Fantasy
RELEASE DATE: June 10, 2019


I have a wonderful life. I have no room to complain; between my brothers and their new mates, this is the most alive our home has felt since my parents died. Unfortunately, all of them being mated is making me miserable. When it was just the four of us, it was us against the world. Now they’re paired up and it’s only me and my dragon, Kesia. Until I happen to walk into the Overlord’s Lair and I see him: Quentin. Mine. Mate. As much as I want to win him over without telling him I’m a dragon rider and we’re mates—which I know he’d love—I’m not sure I can. The minute I’m around him I act like an idiot.
Every time the goofy guy walks into my store, he brightens my day, and I look forward to his daily visits. There’s just something about him that draws me to him, to the point he leaves me pining after him the moment he’s gone. But the thing is, I can tell he’s hiding something, and my wild imagination is coming up with the craziest explanations of the secrets he’s keeping. Maybe he’s a vampire that’s come to whisk me away—ridiculous, right? But a guy can dream. And I’ve definitely been dreaming of that big, muscular man wrapping me in his arms at night.
Malachite is the final book in The Brotherhood of Ormarr series. While each book focuses on a different couple, the overall story arc concludes in this installment. For maximum enjoyment, we suggest reading in order. Malachite is a m/m romance, and is recommended for adults 18 years and older.

Malachite is one of the famous Ormarr brothers. He’s the gentle giant, the last unmated brother until he meets Quentin the owner of the Overlord’s lair. Malachite and his dragon, Kesia, recognized him instantly as their mate, but Malachite wants to win Quentin’s heart by himself, not because of the pull of the mate bond.
With their enemies being reckless and Quentin’s life in danger, Malachite may not have all the time he wants to win Quentin’s heart.
Malachite is the last book in the Brotherhood of Ormarr series. I adored this book.

Malachite, aka Kite, is unmated, he’s the only one of his brother without his partner and as much as he’s happy for them, Malachite’s lonely and a little bit jealous to be alone. He has Kesia, his dragon, but even with her, Kite feels alone, until he meets Quentin. I adored Malachite, really, he was my favorite brother, and I was dying to read his book. I wasn’t disappointed, he’s perfect. I loved how goofy and clumsy he is in front of Quentin, I loved his sensitivity, and I loved how he didn’t hide his pain and sadness in front of his man. I loved how the author wrote him, the huge mountain man, the fierce warrior with the biggest soft heart in the world.

Quentin is unique, and he lives in a fantasy world in his head. Meeting Malachite wasn’t on his agenda, but he embraces it with his whole heart. He trusts Malachite despite his own insecurities. I loved his reaction in front of Kesia when he discovers that Dragons are real. It was like reading my own reaction if I discover that dragons are real. He’s sweet, funny, and sensitive.

I was curious to see how the authors would have closed this series with the brothers, their mates, and their enemies. Who is the traitor? How will they defeat him and save the world? I was curious, and I wasn’t disappointed. Even if the book was focused on Kite and Quentin, the last part was about their mission, and I was completely captivated. The epilogue was beautiful and left open a door ,a tiny door, but still a door about a (possible-maybe-one-day-if-we-kidnap-the-authors-and-force-them-to-write) sequel.

It was a great series with a beautiful ending. This book is part of the series, so it’s better to read the three previous books before. You won’t regret it.

5 Stars for Kite and Q

***I would like to thank the author for the privilege and opportunity of reading this ARC. My review is an honest opinion of the book ***
