Pure Healing

Pure Healing Summary

*** 2018 Reader's Favorite Finalist ***

Enter the world of Pure Ones, a race of immortal, supernaturally powerful beings who protect humankind, where sexual intercourse with anyone other than one’s Eternal Mate leads to a slow, painful death within thirty days.

The Healer of the race, Rain, is the only exception to this rule. To harness and accumulate enough energy to heal severe wounds, especially as the war between her people and the vampire hordes accelerates, she must take a Consort once every ten years and draw strength from his blood and body. But as the war wears on, few Pure-males who are strong enough to serve as her Consort remain. Valerius, Protector of the race, is the strongest candidate.

Despite their instant attraction ten years ago when they first met, Valerius has staunchly avoided applying to be the Healer’s Consort. The brutality and violence he suffered as a Roman sex slave in his human life ate away at his soul, leaving a dark abyss of torment and self-doubt.

Now, as Rain’s strength drains with every healing act, Valerius cannot escape the fact that he may be the only one who can save her, and in so doing, afford his people greater hope for the future as battles intensify.

Will Rain and Valerius find their way to each other as the struggles between good and evil evolve?

Book Reviews


Great Book5 star

Looking forward to the reading the other books in this series. It was hard to follow all the characters in the beginning but totally worth persevering. I could feel the struggles the Protector and Healer felt. Worth reading!55


Not sure how I feel…SPOILERS4 star

this book was failry good, but I found myself skipping a lot of the dialogue that occured with other characters. That is one thing that I didn’t like. I would have liked the book to focus on the main characters more, but it spends a good amount of time jumpint into the thoughts and lives of other characters. A lot of characters were introduced quickly and I felt a bit too bombarded. Some things also were not explained right about the culture of the “Pure Ones.” They appear to be like vampires in almost all aspects, except some have specific abilities and they can’t have sex. If they do end up having sex with anyone other than their future fated mate, they turn into vampires, who are evil. They are also a matriarchal society, even though their queen seems kind of powerless. In regards to the main characters, Rain and Valerious, they are both about 2000 years old but they don’t meet until 10 years prior to the present tense in the book. Rain is a healer, which means she is one of the few that can freely have sex, for 30 days stragith every ten years. She chooses a consort and spends 30 days having sex and gaining energy, almost like a succubus. She takes all this “nourishment” in order to continue on with her healing abilities, but she can never mate herself. Valerious is a tortued soul. I did like his chracter, but sometimes I felt like Rain was not as gentle with him as she should have been. Overall a good readk, some typos, not sure I want to continue with the next book as I found myself having to reread sentences and try to figure out the world based on minimal informaiton.45
