Book Review - Shifting Shadows by Michelle Frost
Shifting Shadows (Metal and Magic #1)Shifting Shadows by Michelle Frost
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A very intriguing start to this new M/M series by Michelle Frost.

It's a world reinvented where the supernatural came out of the closet and humans clawed back some semblance of order but where there are still great swaths of the country are still controlled by supernatural elements, including the center of the country which is now known as The Between.

Deckard Warren is the chief enforcer for the Ironheld Wolves, and they guard their territory, humans and supernats alike, fiercely. One night on patrol along the border of their territory a terrified young man stumbles across the line into their area. The young man is without a doubt Deck's mate. But he doesn't remember anything beyond jumping into Deck's arms and every time he does try to remember a black cloud of panic descends. Deck calls him Colt.

As Colt and Deck try to solve the mystery of his past, Deckard brings Colt more and more into his family, his pack. But there are elements raging against them. Some wolves look down on humans as inferior and right now there's a human leading the pack - Deck's brother in law, Gavin. His sister, Isobel, had been alpha but she'd been killed a year ago and Deck was still full of rage and grief over it. And now he has to contend with the fact that once his mate regains his memories he may lose Colt too.

And there is something dark and evil lurking in Colt's past. But what will it mean for Deckard and the Ironheld Wolves?

The world that Michelle is building is amazing. Her writing is clean and crisp and draws you in. I'm really looking forward to book 2.

Book Review: Winter Shadows: Coldharbour Chronicles #2, by Richard Amos
Winter Shadows (Coldharbour Chronicles #2)Winter Shadows by Richard Amos
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This series just keeps getting better and better!

This is the 2nd in a trio of books by author Richard Amos. The world building he has done and continues to do in this series is absolutely stunning. This series is seriously phenomenal and I am totally addicted to it. The description the author uses is spot on: A dark urban fantasy tale with kick-ass action and slow-burn m/m romance.

In this second book of the Coldharbour Chronicles, we are once again in the magically sealed off town of Coldharbour, where the other realm species known collectively as The Beast, are trying to find a way into our world at large. Our erstwhile hero, Jake Winters, is still trying to deal with the fact that he is the chosen weapon of the goddess Hecate, reeling from the murder of his husband by the White-Eyed man, and assimilate the crazy world he's found himself in. And now he has to protect a Beast called Luke while the Purple-haired psycho Beast, Dana is gunning for him, and his sparky hand are amped up to devour Beast left and right, leaving him hungry for more and... really really horny.

As expected, everything goes to doo-doo as Purple manages to get her hands on a Goblin Wars artifact, a potion with no antidote, and releases it on the helpless cat Beast Luke. Things go from bad to worse as the twin Beast shadows are released and begin to wreak havoc down on Coldharbour while trying to free the Beast Supreme, Lilisian, from the weak and dying host body she's trapped in. And then The White-Eyed Man comes back. Jake's life is well and truly messed up.

Oh, did I mention he has the hots for one of his Guardians, the apparently straight half fae Dean, who is beyond smoking hot. And the object of Jake's Beastfed lust. And it's Christmas. Jake hates Christmas.

Well hell.

Book Review: Dark Rivers by Brice Morgan
Dark Rivers (Witchbane, #2)Dark Rivers by Morgan Brice
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the third book of Morgan Brice that I've read and the second full Witchbane book (there is a novella in between one and two), and I can honestly say the author keeps getting better and better. In this book they deliver on the promise made in Witchbane, with more back story of both Seth and Evan as well as a fleshing out of a great plot. The world building continues and it is one amazing world they are creating.

In a continuation of Witchbane and Burn, the novella, the main characters Seth Tanner and Evan Malone are continuing to hunt for the witch-disciples of Rhyfel Gremory, and this time their hunt takes them to Pittsburgh, PA, right before Christmas. But there are complications to this hunt. Serious complications in the form of a hardcore hunter team consisting of an ex-priest and an ex-FBI agent who have a vested interest in this hunt. And then there's the specter from Evan's past, the abusive ex-boyfriend turned stalker.

The book kept me on the edge of my seat, the love scenes were hot, the new characters introduced very interesting (I have hopes to see a pairing of the ex-priest and the FBI guy coz that's kinda a thing for me) and the action kept me turning the pages.

Even though the book takes place around Christmas, it was a perfectly spooky read for Halloween night!
