Siren Ménage Everlasting: Erotic Futuristic Paranormal Sci-Fi Ménage a Trois Romance, M/F/M, HEA

Violet King has only had two major goals in her life, keep from being killed from those who want her throne, and avoid her mates at all costs. The first is easily achievable, the second is heartbreaking and will leave her to forever walk the Realms alone. There is a problem, though. If she never meets her mates than an entire Race will die out.

Given a task by their new king to bring a friend to the throne home, Viper and Ladon never expected to find their mate at the same time. With trouble coming for her there is only one option, do whatever is necessary to get her beyond the Veil to safety. What comes after will forever alter everyone, and everything—forever.

A prophecy speaking of death is now in play, turmoil between Earth and the Realms has reached an all-new level, and time is beginning to run out for them all.

Violet’s Protectors by Honor James is the last installment in the Beyond the Veil series.  This story is best read in chronological order.I really enjoyed Violet.  She has survived assassins and hidden her nature among the humans for years.  During that time her curiosity was piqued by the declining dragon birth rate so she found time to research that as well.  When it was time to return home she did so not expecting to meet the very men she was avoiding, her mates.  I loved that Violet didn’t wail and bemoan the fact her life was prophesied to end and meeting her mates brought that end much closer.  She decided to enjoy her remaining time and do as much as she could to return fertility to the dragon race.  I loved that Viper and Ladon did not allow pessimism to color their time with Violet.  They were determined to take whatever steps were necessary to protect their mate.  They refused to focus on the negative and instead worked whatever angle they could to prolong Violet’s life. 
While I enjoyed this story and the series overall, I was a bit disappointed that it wasn’t wrapped in a nice bow.  I don’t think I received answers to all the questions that permeated throughout this series.  Who messed with Lilly’s head?  Who was behind Lacey’s stalking?  Who was providing information about AEDA investigations?  Maybe I just missed the answers but I ended the series feeling like something was missing.  However having said that, I did enjoy entering this world Ms. James created.  I was sad to see it end.  Maybe in the future Ms. James will revisit this world and allow us a view behind the veil.
