Publisher's Summary

Vampire Dragos Ibanescu, Mayor of Maggie's Grove, is about to lose his mind. His mate, the dryad queen Mina Chainey, refuses to have anything to do with him after her ordeal at the hands of an evil witch. If he doesn't mate with her soon, he may lose control of the beast within him - a force far more dangerous than anyone in town knows....
Mina's nightmares of her time with the witch haunt her. The Queen of the Forest can't muster the strength needed to fight her terror. Unable to leave the Throne, she vows she will not accept Dragos until she can stand at his side as an equal. But the nightmares are only growing in strength, and soon she realizes that there's more to her pain than simple fear.
Dark forces are converging on Maggie's Grove, and a horde of hunters stalk supernaturals from the shadows. Only by uniting in body and mind will Mina and Dragos find the strength to defend their home.

Getting Better

Things are really starting to get interesting in Maggie's Grove. There was a lot more action in this book compared with the first book in the series. While I really liked this book and I feel it's better than the first book in the series; I agree with reviewers saying the story is missing something. IMHO, while there have been excellent villians so far, the series needs an arch-villian; some one or some organization that can't be defeated in a single book.

Looking forward to the next one

The hero

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Throne of Oak?

The repetitions of the heroine's nightmares.

Any additional comments?

Even though I had read, listened to & loved the first in this series, I couldn't get into this one. I felt like there was a portion of the story that was left out. Unfortunately, it was a big part--the backstory of the hero/heroine (how they met, etc.).
