Rapture (Elfin Series Book #2)



Triktapic, the deadly dark elf assassin, has been restored by the Forest Lords to his rightful place as king of the Elven realm. Now, he must face his former comrades as he attempts to stop Lorsan, king of the dark elves, from enslaving the human race. Lorsan has already begun distributing Rapture, the irresistible drink that destroys those who unknowingly become addicted to it. Will Cassie, his Chosen, be able to give Trik the strength he needs to face his dark past?

Meanwhile, Cassie’s best friend, Elora, is in a fight for her own life. Elora, her mother, Lisa, and a small band of light elves have traveled deep into the dark elf realm in hopes of rescuing Cassie and Trik. But their mission quickly turns into a battle for their own lives as they are surrounded by Lorsan and his warriors. Though outnumbered ten to one, the humans and elves fight heroically. They fight for a King once lost, but now found. They fight for the human realm that doesn’t yet know it is in need of saving. They fight for love; a love that has already been discovered and a love that is waiting to be revealed. Despite their valiant efforts, the band is captured and held captive by the dark elf king.

The peaceful world that Cassie and Elora knew is long gone, shattered by their realization that elves walk secretly among them, and are bent on their destruction. Soon, each of the girls will be forced to choose her own path. Cassie must decide to which world she belongs and Elora must decide if she will fight for a warrior hell bent on keeping her from his side.

Two species, human and elf, stand on the precipice of war, united in one goal; shatter the dark elf king’s plan, and unite a divided race under the rule of the one true King.

Rapture is the second book in the Eflin series. This book continues the journey of Trik the evil, dark elf assassin, and his chosen the human Cassie. Trik answers the call of the Forrest Lords to take up his royal mantel and lead his people. Elora, and Cush join Trik and Cassie in the fight against Lorsan, the dark elf king, in his attempts in mass producing Rapture to enslave the human race.
Trik and Cassie’s relationship grows as they work to unite a people to defeat Lorsan’s plans.  In Rapture, you will learn more about Elora’s past as well as some secrets that her mom has kept from her. Elora will also struggle when she finds her chosen and what that will mean for them both. Loyalty, wisdom, sacrifice, destiny, and love’s choice are reoccurring themes you will see throughout the book. You see an additional layer to Trik’s character. In addition to the bad boy assassin,  you will get to see a new playful side as he interacts with his chosen Cassie more.  Elora’s wit will have you in laughing so hard you will find it hard to breath at times. And if you love alpha men then you are going to fall in love with Cush!

This book has humor, adventure, and romance that will hold your heart in a vice grip. You won’t be able to put it down. I got a book hangover it was so good I couldn’t stop until the last word. The Elfin series gives you a new perspective on Elves that is such a refreshing and imaginative change from those stories that base their Elf characters and story lines off of Shakespeare’s a Midsummer Night’s dream.  I loved Elfin and if its possible I love Rapture even more so! Quinn Loftis is HARDCORE AWESOME in this book! 

I can’t wait for the next book!

“You’re mine, Cassie, my Chosen. I cannot do what it is I have to do without you.” He felt emotions that seemed to have been building all day begin to rush through him and he was nearly overwhelmed. He cupped her face and leaned down and pressed his lips to hers. He shouldn’t be lying here with the most incredibly sweet woman he’d ever met. He didn’t deserve her, and yet, he wouldn’t let her go, not ever.
Cassie moaned as Trik kissed her. If there was one thing her assassin could do, it was kiss. His lips worked a spell over her as she parted her lips for him. The taste of him rushed into her and she pushed closer to him, needing to feel him against her—needing to know that she was safe and that Trik wouldn’t let anything happen to her. His arms wrapped around her and he rolled them so that she was on top of him. She laughed into their kiss at the quick motion, and when she opened her eyes, she saw his silver ones staring back at her.

“You’re so beautiful, A’maelamin,” he whispered to her.

She felt his hands run down her back and stop at the lowest point of the small of her back. She would like to say that she was feeling virtuous, but that would be a big, fat lie. She wiggled against him and Trik groaned and gripped her hips suddenly, holding her still.
“You know what they say about those who play with fire?” Trik asked her in a dangerously low and utterly seductive voice.

Cassie leaned down until her mouth was next to his ear. “That they’re begging to be burned?”




Quinn lives in beautiful NW Arkansas with her husband, son, Doberman and cat (who thinks she is a ninja in disguise). She is beyond thankful that she has been blessed to be able to write full time and hopes the readers know how much all of their support means to her. Some of her hobbies include reading, exercising, crochet, and spending time with family and friends. She gives all credit of her success to God because he gave her the creative spirit and vivid imagination it takes to write.
