Entertaining, but padded with infodumps
The Cleopatra Crisis - Simon Hawke

On the night before crossing the Rubicon, Julius Caesar summons an oracle to discover what the future holds for him. To the astonishment of his aide, Lucius Septimus — the cover identity of Jonathan Travers, a time-traveling observer from the 27th century — the oracle not only warns Caesar of his forthcoming assassination but names the men involved. Fearing that he has stumbled across an attempt by agents of a parallel universe to create a temporal disruption, Travers contacts his superiors in the future. Soon the crack Time Commandos of the First Division — Lucas Priest, Finn Delaney, and Andre Cross — are sent back to ensure that events proceed as needed. But with a rogue colleague, a temporal criminal, and a group of time terrorists involved, the situation threatens to spiral out of control — taking all of history with it.

 

The penultimate volume of Simon Hawke’s Timewars series contains nearly every element familiar to readers of the earlier books in it. Once again the Time Commandos go charging into the past, where they socialize with the great figures of the era while resolving whatever emergency required addressing. Unlike nearly all of the previous volumes, there are no characters inserted from famous works of literature, just the major personalities of Caesar’s time. Yet while an entertaining enough read, the pacing is marred by Hawke's all-too-frequent resort to information dumps throughout the narrative. Though the amount of Hawke’s background research is impressive (even if none of it alerted him to the fact that the title of imperator in the Republican era didn't make Caesar an emperor), here it's employed far too often to pad out a thin story. Perhaps this reflects a certain boredom on Hawke's part with the series, which, if true, was unfortunate given how many rich possibilities remained untapped by the end of it.

Black Moon Sing (The Turquoise Path Book 1) by L. M. Hawke
Black Moon Sing (The Turquoise Path Book 1) - L. M. Hawke

Black Moon Sing: An Urban Fantasy Novella of Shapeshifters vs. Vampires (The Turquoise Path Book 1) by L. M. Hawke is a gripping book about the paranormal.

 

I received a complimentary Kindle copy from Amazon. That did not change my opinion for this review. I gave it four stars.

 

"A dark force is targeting a secret enclave of shapeshifters in the desert southwest, delivering them to grisly fates. Suspected of witchery and cast out of her human society, it's up to Ellery Chee, a lone coyote shifter, to stop this dangerous magician before her world is destroyed."

REVIEW BY MERISSA - Omega Stolen (Northern Lodge Pack #1) by Susi Hawke
Omega Stolen (Northern Lodge Pack #1) - Susi Hawke

@SusiHawkeAuthor, #Paranormal, #MM, #Romance, #GRRC, 4 out of 5 (very good)

 

Omega Stolen is the first book in the Northern Lodge Pack series, and we get a fine introduction into just who they are, and why this pack was formed and living where it is. Kai doesn't have the best of starts (to say the least) and it says a lot when his life actually takes a turn for the better when he is sold by his father! Although he will be forced to have sex and possibly a pup, and then forced into giving up said pup, that hasn't actually happened yet. For the first time, he is fed and has friends. Luckily for him, Jenny is there and her brother is looking for her. Jake is determined to find his sister, and once he finds out she has others she won't leave behind, they're all on their way.

This was a fast-paced book, with no excess of words or scenes. It is very sweet, with the huge BOOM of instant mates. However, for a quick, sassy read, it was absolutely brilliant, and just what I needed. I don't know if I have read an updated version, but there were no editing, spelling, or grammar mistakes that disrupted my reading. Each chapter was titled with who was speaking so there was no confusion there.

A quick, hot, MM Shifter Mpreg book that I thoroughly enjoyed and have no hesitation in recommending.

* A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book, and the comments here are my honest opinion. *

4 Lost Stars
Sins of the Lost - Lydia Hawke,Linda Poitevin

 

The world is falling apart and the only way homicide detective Alexandra Jarvis can save it is to convince the man she loves to give her up. Seth Benjamin abdicated his role as Heaven’s son and the now the world is suffering cataclysmic results but Seth sees no point in relinquishing Alex only to delay the inevitable. Just when Alex thinks she making headway with Seth, an agent of Hell gets involved offering Seth another option.

 

Once again the ‘Grigori Legacy’ series stuns readers with an emotionally gripping story that turns everything upside down. The strong, captivating characters continue to engage readers in their world but they still remain quite stubborn and unaccepting and moving forward in this ongoing war between heaven and hell and they continue to make mistakes huge mistakes that results in some dire consequences because of that.

 

The plot is steady to fast paced and full of suspense, thrills and jaw dropping twists that keep readers hanging onto the edge of their seats. While exciting, it all also keeps things a bit on the depressing side when readers are faced with just how destructive humans can be. However, there is no denying that the story pulls readers and refuses to let go and ensures that they want to know just how this war will end.
