Next to the powers of heaven and hell, we are nothing.

 

“So this was just one gigantic, cosmic war between light and dark magic. And we were only a small part of it, a tiny dot in the gods’ empire. It was no wonder that they saw us as insignificant.”

 

Tested by the gods, Leda and her angelic mate Nero venture into the City of Ashes, a fallen fortress in the Western Wilderness where nightmarish monsters reign supreme and an ancient secret is buried. To survive the Gods’ Trials, they will have to save the city—and they will have to do it without their magic.

 

Their victory, however, comes at a heavy price. And the secret they uncover will upset the balance of power between Earth and heaven.

Shifter’s Shadow takes place right where Dragon’s Stormends with the BIG surprise.

 

Leda and Nero are now officially a couple in this one. I’m happy that they are finally together, but that doesn’t mean things will go smoothly.

 

In Shifter’s Shadow we get Nero’s promotional test, the Gods Trial, and he has picked Leda as his second. Lets, just say this test isn’t easy and what the Gods expect Nero to do is down right upsetting and sad, but these two always find away to work around the rules and bet the odds.

 

As you can guess we get to meet the Gods and Goddess. Can’t say I’m a fan. Their seams to be things going on that only a slit few know about; a war amongst the gods and of course the issue with the demons. Not only do we meet the gods, but we get more surprises in the supernatural world that I didn’t see coming.

 

Leda has leveled up again and gets to lead her own team on a mission, while Nero stands by and observes. Leda is a fun character to like. She’s snarky, kick ass, and knows what to do in situations. She keeps her cool and keeps everyone on her team alive.

 

Ms. Summers has done a wonderful job in her world building, character development, and bringing in something new to each additional installment. Legion of Angels is a fantastic series. I’m hooked. Each installment brings me something new to love. It’s been a while since I’ve found a series that has pulled me in and made me want to read one book after another. Now that I’m done with book five, Shifter’s Shadows, I’ll have to wait for book six, since it’s not out yet.

 

Rated: 4 Stars

Nyx's Pixie (A Dragon's Treasure #2) by K.M. Mahoney 4 Star Review
Nyx's Pixie - K.M. Mahoney

In a world of beauty and magic, the Draak are an elite force, sworn to protect king and country. But with no wars and a king powerful enough that none want to challenge him, the life of an immortal warrior can be more dull than deadly. Until one lonely dragon finds a human mate. Suddenly, the king’s warriors are falling in love one after another. Seamus, king of the Fae, would be happy for his men, if it weren’t for that niggling worry in the back of his mind. It is said that a mated dragon gains abilities to protect his mate, and a dragon with a Treasure—a mate that is a dragon’s perfect match in every way—is strongest of all.

Everything happens for a reason. If the Draak are growing more powerful, then something is coming. Whatever it is, Seamus fears it could very well destroy the harmony he has worked so hard to bring to Faerie.

 

Review

 

I really like the world KM Mahoney has created in this book.

Pol is a delightful hero because he is underestimated all the time. His secret powers are amazing and he is a pixie which grand.

Nyx is a grumpy dragon shifter but he always treat Pol as an equal. 

The plot outside the love story is less intersting but I like this couple.

Release Day Review! Shifter Bound (Pack Bound #3) Leisl Leighton!
Shifter Bound (Pack Bound) - Leisl Leighton

 

 

One pack, one coven, a destiny intertwined...

Five hundred years ago, facing extinction, a group of powerful witches united to create a pact with the Were to save witch-kind. The pact expelled an ancient evil, known only as the Darkness, that was blocking the Were from their wolves. With the Darkness destroyed, the Packs and their Covens grew strong as they thrived beside each other in their brand-new world.

But the Darkness was not destroyed.

Shifter-Witch Eloise O’Brien has betrayed her Coven and almost killed her brother to save the Were Pack she’d infiltrated as a spy. Now living with the Were she once feared and hated, she learns the truth of who she really is—the prophesied Nexus. A witch of unspeakable power, she must make a choice between the light and the dark, between Iain McShane, the Lone Wolf she is coming to love, and her once beloved brother and Coven who are now working for the Darkness.

 

 

 

The intriguing Pack Bound saga continues in another thrilling romance that keeps readers on the edge of their seat as the wolves and the witches struggle to accept the changes that are taking place in the pack and with the never ending attacks by their evil nemesis.

 

All the characters in this series are strong and compelling, easily captivating readers with their lives and their romances and Eloise and Iain have a strong sizzling attraction that is pulls them together but their romance is full of strife and upheaval that tugs at readers’ heartstrings and keeps them fully invested in the story emotionally as well as being kept intrigued with every things that is going on. 

 

The suspense and intrigue of all the exciting events that take place in this story keeps readers on the edge of their seat with anticipation as well as keeping them wondering just how the pack will overcome all the adversity and insecurities that flow from the pages as their enemy comes up with new ways to kill off the pack and anyone who gets in their way. There is lots of twists and turns to ensure that the readers can’t possible guess what will happen next.

 

I was completely caught up in the suspense of the story as well as this emotionally turbulent romance where both the hero and heroine seem to think that neither has a chance at a ‘happily ever after’. This series continues to enthrall me and their enemy continues to incite some very strong emotions from me as well, so needless to say I can’t wait to find out what happens in Moon Bound which is supposed to be released next month.

 

 

 

Shifter Bound is the 3rd book in the Pack Bound series.

 

The 4th book - Wolf Bound will be released on May 1, 2018

 

Shifter Bound is available in ebook at:

Amazon   GPlay   Kobo   B&N   iBooks

Behind the Eight Ball (Fur, Fangs, and Felines, # 2) by M.A. Church Review
Behind the Eight Ball - M.A. Church

A cool morning, a yard full of birds, and a kitty on a mission. What more could a werecat want? Beta Heller Wirth has it all, except a mate—a shifter mate, that is. The last thing he wants is one of those dangerous humans who kill without remorse. Heller knows about that firsthand. So what does the goddess Bast do? She gives Heller exactly what he does not want—a human: business owner Lawson Dupre.

Lawson hasn’t a clue what just happened in his car detail shop. One minute a cute client is about to pass out, and then he perks up and starts flirting. Next thing, he runs out the door like the hounds of hell are after him. Learning that Heller is a werecat doesn’t freak out Lawson. He happens to be one of those rare humans who knows paranormals exists. He even lives with one. Watch the fur fly as Heller and Lawson battle hurt feelings, misguided beliefs, and a power shift in Heller’s clowder.

 

 

Review

 

I love domestic cat shifters. Who would have guessed? 

However, the romance here takes too many stops and starts for me with Heller's issues and then the side plot. I never really get the flush of a love story though the world building is nice and I like the characters.

Hot and Badgered by Shelly Laurenston
Hot and Badgered - Shelly Laurenston

Laurenston is one of my favorite authors. Whenever I am in need of a book that is guaranteed to slap a smile on my face I usually grab something written by her. Is this book a literary masterpiece? No, but it’s damn funny, full of interesting characters, and there is just enough paranormal to keep me interested.

 

This is a spin-off to the author’s Pride series. If you haven’t read those, please start there. 

 

Where Laurenston shines is how she writes her characters. They are ALL flawed. They have panic disorders, mommy/daddy issues, crazy families, etc., and they all are shifters. There animal side is very much a part of who they are. These aren’t characters that can turn into animals. If they are a bear shifter, they are also bearlike in human form: curious, love honey, don’t play well with other breeds. The honey badgers are scrappy, tend to want to take things that aren’t theirs, and they also love honey. The focus couple in this are a grizzly bear shifter and a honey badger/wolf hybrid. They are good together. The bear is very patient and is exactly what the hybrid needs considering her crazy family. Her two sisters are a big part of this book because her whole life has been focused on keeping them safe, mostly from their asshat of a father.

 

A lot of this story is set up for future stories. Normally have a hard time getting through a book like this, but not this one. Laurenston’s characters are so cool I enjoyed being introduced to each one of them, and there are quite a few. 

 

While led this is a romance book, there wasn’t a lot of focus on the couple. I was okay with that, but I do feel like I would have liked to see them interact more. More times where he was a hero for her, he did, but I wanted more of him crushing bad guys with his bear strength.

 

Really recommend this book, actually all books written by this author.
