Blurb: Agent Poe loves being part of the Agency—an organization devoted to protecting shape-shifters—and he especially loves his mate of only a couple of months, Nordik, the nigh immortal master bear shifter. He has the best of both worlds—the man he loves and the job he loves. But when Nordik reveals he’s ready to rejoin society and accompany Poe on his missions, Poe must take the next step and make them a full partnership.
After the Agency intercepts a message from Arcas, the leader of the Knights of the Dawn—a cult bent on the annihilation of shifters—meant for his followers, their job gets a whole lot harder. The Knights don’t bother keeping their activities hidden anymore, stretching the Agency’s resources thinner than ever.
After a near-fatal mission almost costs Poe his life, Nordik insists on a break for both of them. They visit Poe’s family in Ireland and learn that true danger lies not without, but within. There’s no greater betrayal than that of a loved one.
Review: Each book in The Shifters collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.
Poe has been apart of the Agency since the beginning it seems. He has fought the darkest of evil to keep all safe from harm. His mate is a master bear shifter by the name of Nordik, a man he loves with all of his heart. A man he wants to protect, but the war to keep the shifters safe is heating up. Now they must combine the Agency and shifters alike to keep all alive.
The problem is Poe is slowly burning out, especially with the latest injury and is forced to go on vacation with his mate. A vacation to see the family back in Ireland. It also leads them right into danger once more, and a deception within the family. It seems Arcas, the leader of the Knights of the Dawn, has stepped up his game and his recruits follow him till the end.
M.D. Grimm’s stories seem more like mystic tales to me. It is a very fascinating world of good versus evil, and so far evil is winning. The characters are fully developed and are quite interesting to hear about. I will have to say to follow the story one must definitely start with the first book. Even with time going past, I still got a bit lost for a moment there. This is one of those stories you would probably want to read back to back.
I first read this author’s work as it so happens with the first book in this series. It has a dark tone to it, but you can find just a hint of humor mixed in. I will admit that this is not a series that is memorable to me though. Not to say I don’t love the story, it is just that I had not remembered it, until I read a bit into it. I can’t say I have a favorite character yet, but the guys do pull you into their world pretty easy. It has some pretty wicked twists and turns to it that will definitely keep your interest.
I enjoyed reading it and can imagine you will also.
