Blurb: The sea is full of jealously guarded secrets, but everything washes up eventually….

Betrayed by a trusted partner, Nathan figures he might as well be lost and heartbroken in the sunshine, and he heads to the coast of South Carolina, to stay with a friend and find a new direction for his life. But despite his efforts, he is lost in the fog, unable to find a guiding light and sometimes unable to find a reason to go on. His only respite from depression and anxiety is the soothing rhythm of the tides and the comfort he draws from proximity to the water.

When the sea sends a lifeline in the form of a strange and beautiful man, it’s easy for Nathan to ignore all the things that don’t add up about his new friend. But the tides can turn without notice, and it’s those mystical traits that will either finally lead Nathan safely to shore or drown him in confusion and despair.

Reviewer: Shorty 

Review: An interesting story about a man, Nathan, struggling after a break up and feels alone and depressed. When the depression becomes too much he walks into the water where he meets Brume.

Brume has spent his time in the water helping humans when they decide life is not worth living anymore. I found Brume fascinating in his approach of Nathan and what he does. While it did not surprise me that two fell for each other it did surprise me that it seemed a little fast.

Other than that I loved the story. 

Great read.

Blurb: A vengeful god’s curse took everything from the Egyptian pharaoh Seti: his name, his position, and even his lover. After many long centuries relegated to a musty sarcophagus, he’s awakened when a graduate student working in the museum where he is stored stumbles upon him.

Logan, working as a curator to fund his education, figures he’s screwed when he accidentally awakens the ancient ruler. It’ll be career suicide to claim the mummy came back to life, but it’s either that or be labeled a thief. Little does he know, those are the least of his problems. A society of archaeologists is hot on their trail, determined to uncover the secret of Seti’s immortality, and then there’s the little matter of an angry god who doesn’t appreciate Logan meddling in his work. But the biggest problem might be Seti himself, who’ll stop at nothing to get into Logan’s pants—and his heart.

Reviewer: Shorty 

Review: A grief stricken Pharoah angers a god and pays for it. Seti, lost in his grief of the one he loved being murdered denounces Setehk. Setehk has him tortured, mummified and entombed for five thousand years. Logan accidentally breaks the seal freeing Seti.

I cannot imagine a God being after me let alone someone wanting to kill me for the secret to immortality. Yet that is what happened to Logan and Seti. Danger, action, mystery, suspense and hair raising situations follow these two as they struggle to make sense of the why.

The two things that bothered me throughout the entire book is that 1. Seti never explained what exactly happened to him after he angered the god even though he told Logan he would. 2. What exactly happed to Seti’s lover. Those two details were sticking points for me as I waited patiently for explanations that never came.

Blurb: Welcome to Dim Sum Asylum: a San Francisco where it’s a ho-hum kind of case when a cop has to chase down an enchanted two-foot-tall shrine god statue with an impressive Fu Manchu mustache that’s running around Chinatown, trolling sex magic and chaos in its wake.

Senior Inspector Roku MacCormick of the Chinatown Arcane Crimes Division faces a pile of challenges far beyond his human-faerie heritage, snarling dragons guarding C-Town’s multiple gates, and exploding noodle factories. After a case goes sideways, Roku is saddled with Trent Leonard, a new partner he can’t trust, to add to the crime syndicate family he doesn’t want and a spell-casting serial killer he desperately needs to find.

While Roku would rather stay home with Bob the Cat and whiskey himself to sleep, he puts on his badge and gun every day, determined to serve and protect the city he loves. When Chinatown’s dark mystical underworld makes his life hell and the case turns deadly, Trent guards Roku’s back and, if Trent can be believed, his heart… even if from what Roku can see, Trent is as dangerous as the monsters and criminals they’re sworn to bring down.

Reviewer: Shorty 

Review: I really enjoyed this story about Trent, a mysterious man who is Raku’s new partner at the division. Raku is cynical but it is to be expected after all that has happened in his past. I loved the chemistry between the two and was even gladder that the romance was not front and center as is the case with most books. 

The plot was amazing, the details edge of your seat worthy and the investigation, great. I was immersed in this aspect as I traversed along with Trent and Raku. There were hair raising scenes as the story progressed.

I think this is the second or third book I have read by this author and was not disappointed in the least. If you like mystery and suspense with urban fantasy then this book is for you. 

Great read.

Blurb: Kavon and Darren believe they finally have the life they want—a lead on O’Brien, a better understanding of the failures that have plagued the team, and time to nurture the bond between them as shamans and lovers. However they’ve gotten involved in magical politics, and that has consequences that neither of them could foresee. Magic is changing, and Kavon and Darren are in the center of a coming storm. 

In the past, Kavon’s only fear was that he might inadvertently damage Darren, and he is painfully aware that he has hurt his lover before. He’s vowed to never make that mistake again, but new forces threaten their relationship and pose a special threat to Darren. With the danger growing more intense, Kavon struggles to find a way to protect the ones he loves and Darren realizes that the magic that gave him his heart’s desire could take everything away just as quickly. Magic is a two-edged sword and the two lovers have to find a way to wield the weapon before it becomes the instrument of their death.

Reviewer: Shorty 

Review: Kavon and Darren are adjusting to their new lives as a couple with all that entails. They are not without their struggles as is with all pairs. Amid this is their continuing investigations of cases that are not closed yet. 

There was a lot going on in this story. I liked the explanations regarding the magical world as it gave me a better understanding. Some answers from the first two books are given as well. 

Yet I felt like the book was incomplete at the end. There were still questions left unanswered as well as some new characters thrown into the mix that left me feeling like maybe there will be another book in the future. 

Aside from this it was still a great read with plenty of mystery for all. Great read.

Blurb: Darren and Kavon have committed to each other, but magical rules are changing and that tests the strength of their bond. The death of a prominent Egyptian shaman and the shadowy remains of O’Brien’s conspiracy to kill adepts and steal their magic also pressure the new couple. Kavon is determined to protect his partner through these storms, but he is also painfully aware of his own tendency to hover. And as Darren is quick to point out, he is an armed federal agent who won’t allow Kavon to keep him off the front lines.

Making the relationship even more difficult, the spirit guides who offered their loyalty have their own hopes and needs. The world is changing, and Darren’s spirit guide pushes them to find the right path to navigate. However, Kavon has never enjoyed being pressured, and he is particularly uncomfortable walking into a situation he doesn’t understand. Worse, the longer he knows Darren and his guide, the more confused Kavon becomes about how magic even works. The two men must pull together or the forces moving in the shadows threaten to destroy them before they have any chance at happiness.

Reviewer: Shorty 

Review: While I enjoyed the deepening relationship between Darren and Kavon my main focus was on the spirit guides. I found them fascinating and intriguing.

At times the ifrits seem to turn the story dark with their unique abilities. The change in dynamics for Kavon was amazing. I loved how he tried to understand what was going on and go with the flow. Darren seemed to grow as he grew accustomed to his new powers.

The overall feel of the book was a great story with magical and dramatic elements that made for a nice addition to the series. Looking forward to reading the third book and what happens next.

Great read.

Blurb: Darren is proud of his work on the FBI’s magical Talent unit. However, his own lack of magic means he can never be with Supervisory Special Agent and Shaman Kavon Boucher. The shamanic magic poses a real danger to any mundane who gets too close, so Darren tries to hide his attraction and keep a professional relationship at work. That resolve begins to crumble when a new man sets his sights on Kavon and Darren can’t control his resentment.

Now they have a brutal new case of a suspect targeting magical adepts. Darren tries to keep focused on that crime, but when he starts to show signs of his own magic, he hopes that maybe he can not only be a more effective part of the team but also a real partner to Kavon. He might have a second chance at love if only Kavon can learn to trust his new and unpredictable magic that has changed the rules of the magical game. 

ISBN: 978-1-68252-159-5

Product Link: Loose Id | Amazon UK | Amazon US | Amazon DE

Reviewer: Shorty 

Review: Darren is a mundane with no magical capabilities, until they start manifesting, that serves as a go between for his unit. Kavon, Darrens boss, shoots down Darrens advances because of the shamans ability to drain the life from humans. There is a lot of drama when a new guy is entered into the mix.

I loved all the explanations of the magical sense. Although at times I felt bogged down by it I still felt grateful. It was a magical story about cops, animal spirits and the beginning of a relationship though the relationship aspect really does not go far until the end.

The mystery was intriguing and the investigation in depth. I was enthralled in the case and the way it unfolded. I am looking forward to seeing what else happens in the next book.

Great read.

Blurb: Olivier Merlo works for a dangerous man. He does what he’s told without asking questions because he needs to protect his sister and niece. When someone gives his boss trouble, Olivier does what he does best. It’s a routine hit—until the victim’s brother starts poking around.

Cody Anders left his family behind a decade ago—along with their wealth and influence—to live on his own terms. Still, he knows his twin didn’t die of a drug overdose, and he’ll do anything to find the truth. What he uncovers is a conspiracy that will topple his family and leave him staring down the barrel of a gun.

Olivier must decide if he’s going to obey orders or free himself from the curse that has guided his hand for centuries. Cody, who challenges Olivier’s notion that no one can love him, holds the key to breaking his chains. But when the truth finally comes out, it might be more than Cody can accept.

Reviewer: Shorty 

Review: This story did not have the same intensity as the previous books in the series to me but the never the less was just as good. Olivier’s nightmares were a glimpse into what has happened in the past though he does not know it. Cody was determined to find out what happened to his brother no matter what.

Olivier’s past and present story was heart-breaking. I admired how strong he was mentally to do what he has to do to survive for his family. 

I felt sorry for both Olivier and Cody as one was ready to walk into danger and the other wanted to protect him from his boss and father. There were a lot of players involved but I found some were not explained well enough to get a complete understanding of their role.

It was a great read that I enjoyed.

Blurb: Being a police detective is hard. Add the complication of being a werewolf subject to human prejudice, and you might say Ray Branigan has his work cut out for him. He’s hot on the trail of a killer when he realizes he needs help.

Enter Cal Parker, the beautiful half-fairy Ray’s secretly been in love with for years—secretly, because while werewolves mate for life, fairies…don’t. Ray needs Cal’s expertise, but it isn’t easy to concentrate with his mate walking around half-naked trying to publicly seduce him. By the time Ray identifies the killer—and sorts out a few prejudices of his own—it may be too late for Cal.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review:  This is part of a series but can be read as a standalone story.  I realized this after I read the stories out of order so I didn’t really miss too much of it.  It is a fascinating story if not a bit too dark for my taste.  I don’t much care for fairy tales but the fairy in question is very hot and tempting, especially for a sexy detective.

Ray has been in love with Cal for some time, but Cal is a fairy whereas Ray is a werewolf.  Werewolves mate for life but fairies do not.  So his bond with his mate is driving him crazy but he is determined to get his mate.  Well that and to find out who is behind the killings.  It doesn’t make it easy when his mate is trying to always seduce him.  Oh did I mention that the love has always been a secret.

To Ray fairies are very whimsical and flighty, so he fears that Cal will not want to settle down with one mate.  So what does Ray do, he is denying his wolf his mate.  Trying to stay away just a bit.  However it never really works.  Now this story starts off with a very grumpy and moody wolf.  Ray has not been sleeping nor eating because he misses Cal.  To me it his own fault.  Cal was easy to figure out, seeing as he is a fairy.  He is always sucking on candy, always tempting Ray and feels the same way.  

Now there are some issues I found off about this story.  For one Cal is short for Calvin and Calvin is Cal’s father.  The secondary character Penelope, well at first I was beginning to get some of the characters mixed up.  It doesn’t start off the way I would have hoped it would have.  For one we get a look at what should have been the beginning but it was just a flash back.  So for me the beginning felt like the middle.  I didn’t like the racist part of the story whatsoever.  For our main guy to be, brought the story down for me.  However not enough to get a big kick out of it.

This is the first story I have come across where our werewolf is a loner and doesn’t automatically jump his mate, well to mate.  He hides it for over two years.  I love how Cal is in the story though.  He does everything to get his mates attention, without knowing the mating part.  Now as for the story itself, the sentences were underdeveloped, weird word’s added in and it came off like it was written by a very new author.  The story didn’t flow like it should have and the pace was quirky.  The mystery was figured out before the story was even half way there.  It felt like it was just pushed in to make the story longer. 

So where as the story had great potential it failed to deliver.  I did enjoy it but spent more time trying to figure it out.  I know from the fact that I read it out of order, that they do get better.  So I am off to read book two.

by

E.J. Russell

Temp worker David Evans has been dreaming of Dr. Alun Kendrick ever since that one transcription job for him, because holy cats, that voice. Swoon. So when his agency offers him a position as Dr. Kendrick’s temporary office manager, David neglects to mention that he’s been permanently banished from offices. Because, forgiveness? Way easier than permission.

Alun Kendrick, former Queen’s Champion of Faerie’s Seelie Court, takes his job as a psychologist for Portland’s supernatural population extremely seriously. Secrecy is paramount: no non-supe can know of their existence. So when a gods-bedamned human shows up to replace his office manager, he intends to send the man packing. It shouldn’t be difficult—in the two hundred years since he was cursed, no human has ever failed to run screaming from his hideous face.

But cheeky David isn’t intimidated, and despite himself, Alun is drawn to David in a way that can only spell disaster: when fae consort with humans, it never ends well. And if the human has secrets of his own? The disaster might be greater than either of them could ever imagine.

Review: Oh my god was this book so good. Talon and his team are back when enhanced children start disappearing. Talon is not happy that Finn acts as bait to lure whoever is behind the kidnappings out. 

While all this is going on Finn is getting upset with Talon as he feels Talon does not think he can do his job. With tensions mounting between the two disasters is sure to strike. 

Talon’s abilities seem to grow when unexpectedly he starts being able to do what other team members can do. I swear there were twists and turns that had my head spinning but in a good way. There was no shortage of action, drama, suspense and mystery throughout. 

I seriously love this amazing series. I cannot wait to read more about the others on the team as well. You have to read this series.

Highly recommended.

Blurb: Evil stays hidden in plain sight.

Sebastian Torres is a healer and midwife both by trade and by calling. He’s spent the past three years as the only male midwife in a local hospital.

Anthony Craig is intrigued by Sebastian, finding him professional and attractive. He can’t help wondering about something—why Sebastian never dates the same man twice.

When several pregnant women die in maternity wards a few states away, their fetuses missing, the police are baffled at the strange circumstances surrounding their deaths. Could there be a serial killer on the loose?

As the number of deaths escalates, Sebastian suspects a monster of legend, rather than one of the human variety, is responsible. Sebastian knows he’s the only thing standing in evil’s way, but in order to save innocent lives, he must reveal his secret to Anthony. Will Sebastian’s revelation prove too much and drive Anthony away?

ISBN: 978-1-4874-1233-3

Product Link: http://www.extasybooks.com/jo-tannah/hidden-evils/

Reviewer: Shorty 

Review: I liked the overall story but felt the horror element was a little lacking. For me horror implies feeling strong emotions that have me fearing what will happen next. This book did not do that for me. Probably because I have read too many Stephen King books.

Sebastian’s character was intriguing yet at times vague about who he really was. When the truth was revealed I was fascinated. Anthony was a doctor at the same hospital where Sebastian works. I was surprised he accepted Sebastian so easily after all was revealed. I was expecting some disbelief considering he is human.

The creature was a disgusting thing that never should have been allowed to live as long as it did. The action scenes were edge of your seat suspense as it let the reader know to what lengths the creature would go to survive. I did not understand the transfer of power from creature to human as that was not explained well so it left me scratching my head as to how it was done.

All in all it was a great story that had mystery, action and suspense that leaves the reader awaiting the outcome.
