M.D. Grimm - 01 - Ruby Lost and Found Cover 4hy468

Ruby: Lost and Found

(The Stones of Power 01)
by

M.D. Grimm

Lord Morgorth is a dark mage on the planet Karishian. He’s considered a villain by his peers and relishes the title, having embraced the role early in his life. However, not all of his actions are necessarily villainous.

Despite owning several of the Stones of Power—gemstones infused with powerful magick—he doesn’t use them, preferring to keep them hidden away and out of destructive, power-hungry hands. He hates them more than anything. So when a sorcerer gets a hold of a major stone, Morgorth has no choice but to go after him. But, to his irritation, he is not alone. Aishe is a dialen whose tribe was massacred by the sorcerer, and is now on a mission of vengeance. The attraction is instant between them, but Morgorth keeps his distance. Because of a traumatic childhood and a deadly destiny, he has no desire for emotional complications. But Aishe’s very presence challenges Morgorth’s resolve.

Not only does Morgorth admire Aishe’s strength and intelligence, but he begins to see Aishe as a friend. As their hunt continues and their time together lengthens, their bond deepens, as does Morgorth’s fear. If he becomes the monster that destiny claims he will be, will he hurt Aishe? Will he harm the one person who sees right through him? Who accepts him wholeheartedly? Determined to not let that happen, Morgorth keeps Aishe at a distance. But when Aishe is kidnapped by the sorcerer, what will Morgorth do to get him back?

Peridot: War and Peace

(The Stones of Power 02)

Morgorth is considered a villain by his own people and known as the Dark Mage of the North. But now all he feels is light and love as he pursues a budding relationship with Aishe, a dialen of the Ravena tribe. Morgorth hardly believes his good fortune. He has allowed Aishe into his home, into his bed, into his heart. He laughs more, smiles more, and feels happier than he ever has before.

He should have known such bliss never lasts.

The Council of Mages, the ruling body over all mages on Karshian, knows he has Rambujek, a major stone of power—a stone won from an evil sorcerer. They also know his destiny—to become the Destroyer. Fearful, they send two emissaries to take the stone from Morgorth, using whatever means necessary. This includes tricks, threats to those under his protection, and the threat of war. A war Morgorth knows he would never survive.

Conflict soon arises between him and Aishe. Their tenuous relationship is put into jeopardy, their very beliefs about themselves and their love is put into question. Morgorth doubts if he should keep Aishe in his life. He doesn’t know if he can protect Aishe from his enemies. Or from the monster he might become.

Amethyst: Bow and Arrow

(The Stones of Power 03)

Every story has more than one point of view.

As the mate to the Dark Mage Morgorth, Aishe has learned a lot about magick, love, and himself. He tries to find a home with Morgorth, to be accepted into his world; to survive in a world full of magick, treachery and deception. But all the while he struggles to keep a secret about his past and their intertwined destinies. Despite all the obstacles thrown at both of them, Aishe is determined to stay by Morgorth’s side, no matter what the future brings – even if that future turns dark with death should Morgorth embrace his grim destiny.

But when Morgorth leaves with his mentor to collect another stone of power, Aishe is left behind. It is then that a surprise attack comes and Aishe, determined to protect and defend his new home, decides to take the invaders on by himself. It might prove to be too much for him to handle… especially when he learns the one who leads the invaders is a mage.

The third book in the “Stones of Power” series allows us a glimpse inside the mind of Lord Morgorth’s better half, a dialen named Aishe: his motivations, his personal sorrows, and his struggle to find a place to call home.

M.D. Grimm - 04 - Agate Then and Now Cover kel948

Agate: Then and Now

(The Stones of Power 04)

Time travel. For mages, it violates their number one rule: what the Mother has written, let no one unwrite. The Mother writes the destinies of the creatures on the world of Karishian. If her writings were undone, it is feared that Creation itself could be undone. The Dark Mage Morgorth takes this rule to heart, but there are others who do not.

Morgorth is about to claim a stone of power when it is stolen from him by a female mage he hasn’t seen in decades. As they struggle for the stone, she activates it, and Morgorth is unwillingly plunged into another time and another place. It isn’t long before he realizes what time he’s found himself in and there are a few familiar faces.

Most notable is a much younger version of Aishe. His mate.

Living with a tribe who will be massacred, caring for a young lad who will become his mate, and fighting a battle against a mage who can travel from past to future at a whim; Morgorth’s life has never been easy but now he must contend with the will of the Mother. Unable to change the future and the tragedies of Aishe’s life, he must decide what his role in his mate’s past will be, and ask himself one vital question: how does one defeat time?

M.D. Grimm - 05 - Emerald Good and Evil Cover 363hy

Emerald: Good and Evil

(The Stones of Power 05)

Home. Family.

Those words often invoke a sense of love and comfort. But for the dark mage Morgorth, they mean hate and pain. As the seventh son of a seventh son, many believe Morgorth’s destiny is to become the Destroyer. His father embraced such a future and trained Morgorth through torture and fear to become his weapon. Morgorth managed to escape his father’s cruelty, but not the nightmares that still haunt him. For many years he’s lived with the stain of his father’s savagery, but now he must confront his nightmares head-on.

His father has found a stone of power.

Morgorth must return to his land of birth, to the memories he’s tried his entire life to suppress. Aishe is determined to help Morgorth defeat his inner demons, but he knows he might not be enough to save Morgorth from embracing his darkness. They know it will be a fight to the death and know Morgorth won’t be the same if he survives. With Aishe by his side, Morgorth hunts for his father, and finds answers to questions he never dared to ask—and must live with the truths they reveal.

M.D. Grimm - 06 - Carnelian Dreams and Visions Cover vey73

Carnelian: Dreams and Visions

(The Stones of Power 06)

Lord Morgorth is haunted by dreams of his father. Although Morgorth killed him, his father’s presence and brutality won’t completely die. But now he has more to worry about—in the form of the Council of Mages’ inquiry into the duel between Morgorth and an elder of the council. Morgorth expects sabotage and prepares accordingly. He fears for Aishe’s life, knowing that the best way to sabotage the inquiry is to eliminate the witnesses. He sets into motion a desperate plan that, though it will protect Aishe, could put a strain on their relationship not easily removed.

Yet the true danger lurks unseen, and it will take all of Morgorth’s skill, strength, and devotion to Aishe, to save his mate from the hold of a foe Morgorth has yet to tangle with: a dream demon. Now Morgorth must throw aside caution, restraint, and fear if he is to save the one most dear to him. He must call upon the power of the one thing he hates more than even his father: a stone of power.

But even if he manages to save Aishe, his mate’s experiences in Dreamworld—at the mercy of the dream demon—have changed him forever and could shatter their bond irrevocably.

M.D. Grimm - 07 - Lapis Lazuli Forgotten and Remembered Cover 93i3k

Lapis Lazuli: Forgotten and Remembered

(The Stones of Power 07)

A bond they thought couldn’t be broken…

Lord Morgorth, Dark Mage of the North, has never felt so far away from his precious mate as he does now. Still reeling from the events of a month before, Aishe struggles to come to grips with what the dream demon did to him while pretending to be Morgorth. For his part, Morgorth is haunted by the chilling vision the Mother sent him while he traversed Dreamworld—a vision where he kills the one most precious to him. Due to that knowledge, he knows he must choose his magick or his mate.

A choice with devastating consequences…

When Morgorth goes missing, Aishe must search for him, frightened that he has lost his mage forever. In his heart he knows they were meant for each other and refuses to allow his own horrid memories to tear them apart. But when he finds Morgorth he is stunned to realize that Morgorth doesn’t remember him. In fact, in Morgorth’s mind, he is a young lad named Lazur.

Sometimes the most well-known truth is the greatest lie…

For his entire life, Morgorth always knew his destiny was to become the Destroyer of his home world. His birthright as the third seventh son of a seventh son guaranteed such an outcome. Everyone told him so—except his mentor, Master Ulezander. Morgorth will learn that his mentor has been keeping the greatest secret of all: his true destiny.

Blurb: Emperors Chrysander and Ellery Draconis are in love and looking toward the future. Ellery is the first hybrid to survive a dragon shift, becoming a legend.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: This is part two of emperors Ellery and Chrysanders story. The two are settling into life together as mates. They are happy and enjoying each other. But not everyone is happy for the newly mated couple and a devious plan is set in motion that will change their lives forever.

History has a way of repeating itself and in this case that is almost what happens. The spans a year or more as Chrys and the sorcery of D’Vaire struggle night and day to reverse what is done to Ellery. I was heartbroken as the event unfolded and could not imagine the agony the emperors were going through. Chrys was a rock for Ellery through this trying time though he did have his doubts from time to time.

I was thrilled as many characters we know and love came together as a whole to find out who did this horrible thing to their emperor. I am always amazed with every book that comes out as they always add more depth and understanding to an already fascinating series.

I loved meeting the new characters that were introduced in this addition as well as hints to future matings. It’s always a pleasure to read each book that comes out and I feel humbled and honored that I was introduced to such an amazing and intriguing series as this.

I highly recommend the entire series. You must read these books in order as each picks up where the previous one leaves off. It is my greatest wish that this series continues for a long time as I simply love it. It’s my favorite series of all time.

Review: Because of a future he has seen in a vision Zachary does everything he can to push Titus away from him. He does not want to be a royal seer in the least. Titus is tasked to find the royal seer and is surprised when he discovers who it is.

I really liked Titus and Zachary. Though I understood Zachary’s fear his constant moodiness got on my nerves. Titus was strong and determined which I liked in a character. This was a great addition to the series that I enjoyed reading.

Great read.

Blurb: What would you do if you rode into a mountain tunnel in North Carolina and then rode out into a different world? Adam Stephens is about to find out…

Adam Stephens is a man with a mission. It has been three years since they chopped that malignant brain tumor out of his head, and he is off on a solo motorcycle camping trip through the Appalachian Mountains.

When he rides into the Pine Mountain Tunnel in North Carolina and rides out into another realm—a realm that comes complete with a big sexy grizzly bear shifter, mages, and an evil sorcerer—he isn’t sure he isn’t lying in the tunnel after crashing his bike. Can such a world exist? Or is he dreaming? If he is dreaming…it sure is realistic.

Along the way, there will be some major hurdles to surpass including no indoor plumbing…and no coffee. A man needs some basic luxuries, correct?

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Adam seems to go back in time after driving through a tunnel. It was intriguing seeing how Adam dealt with life without the amenities he was used to. Rafe for his part was sexy yet determined. Adam has a lot to deal with when it becomes apparent that he’s to become something more than what he thought he would ever be.

Evil Mages, a shifter/wizard and a group of people willing to do anything for the right person to save a species from the bidding of an evil mage. I absolutely loved it from the picturesque scenery to the battle scenes and everything in between.

Twists and turns abound in this exciting beginning to an amazing series. I am highly looking forward to reading more about Rafe and his group as well as Adam and his.

Fantastic story and highly recommended.

He gets food delivered so people aren’t staring at his scars when he leaves. It wasn’t what he expected after escaping years of abuse on his own only to be “rescued,” but he’s content.

Jackson Magnus regularly complains he’s the only one not having sex, but it was never about the physical urges rather the desire to finally find his mate. He’s longed and prayed for one since he was young, and it constantly feels like everyone is finding their other half except him. But then his one escape from reality—watching his favorite gamer—turns into the ride of his life.

After a bit of chasing his tail, he finds where his mate is and goes just to visit him, a quick peek. Everything goes too far too fast, and two people see the same events in different ways. What will it take to bring their game of love to happiness?

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Each book in the Hounds of Hell collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.

Trojan has gone through hell and back. He is one of the save souls brought to the school. He is one hell of a gamer and is popular through YouTuber, but he won’t leave his room. He has scars from a time when he was in highschool that left him afraid of those bigger then he is. He just doesn’t want anyone to stare at his scars, and he has them on the outside as well as inside. Then he finds out he is mated to a hellhound, not what he was expecting nor wanting.

Jackson is calmer then most hellhounds but he is still a hellhound. When he finds out that one of his swimmers was his mate, it leads him to seek him out. A gammer that he had a crush on. The problem is he was just a bit to frisky for the scared man. He is going to need a lesson on slowing down.

There is something about the way that Flynn tells a story that will not only draw you in and keep your attention the whole time, but it will more than likely have you laughing your ass off at parts of it. The characters are beautifully written with big hearts, however if you cross them, they have no problem putting you down. They will protect their love ones with their entire lives.

I love the paranormal tone and the little bit of twists that come with it. I had never really thought about a story that not only has angels in it but hellhounds also. When one thinks hellhound, they think evil and death. Now granted they were originally from hell and they can kill who they think need to die, these guys are different. Now even though there is a bit of angst with each character, which at times can drive a reader nuts, there is very little danger. My only issue with these stories is they seem to follow the same path in writing. There is nothing that sets them back to being unique in the story.

Other than that I had a blast reading this story. It caught my attention from the moment I started reading and kept it all the way to the end. It also gave me everything I could want in a book.

Daniel Craigen wants a life of peace. After growing up with parents who make most demons seem mellow, he needs a stress free life to heal. He won’t get that being a saved soul, but he does his best to make it as close to a reality as possible. So when one of the Macfaydens introduces himself as his mate, he’s a bit worried, but agrees to go on a date.

But when the dates probably qualify for some of the worst in history, Daniel is at his wit’s end. A Hail Mary play goes wrong, and huge misunderstanding happens. Can Hugh figure out a way to make things right and have a real chance with his mate, or is there no way for their emotions to connect?

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Each book in the Hounds of Hell collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.

I came across this author when she used another name and loved her unique stories. It is a fascinating world to live in. I love how in this series, hounds of hell are actually the good guys in this story. One would think that they only do evil works, but this shows a different side to the coin so to speak. It is a world where parents who are nearly evil or are just plain evil, sell the soul of their unborn child for what ever they want. Then the hounds realized with the angel’s help that the souls they were to take were in fact blessed souls.

It is a very entertaining story with action packed adventure stuck in, plus you add in hot sex and confused hounds, and you get a blast to read. Her stories are tight and written with a gift, that you can’t help but fall in love with each one of her characters. Not only that but most of her characters have had a hard time in the past or were abused by those who were suppose to love them. The hounds get the ones that are perfect for them and soften the way they normally are.

Daniel’s parents turned out to be pure evil. They abused him and caused him so much stress that he was constantly in pain. He is one of the sweetest souls I have seen so far. Always a smile and a kind gesture to those around him. He is about to find out that his mate is just as golden as he is and is a goof in many ways.

Hugh is a hound that has a heart of gold. He doesn’t really connect with many around him and doesn’t look at a person as if they were just playthings. He is in fact not that interested in the sexual aspect as well, but that changes when he finds his mate. It just takes him a bit longer then most.

I really enjoyed this story more then the others. It felt like a new direction had been taken in the writing that made it stand out even more for me. I had a blast reading this and can not wait to get my hands on the next story.

Blurb: Shane Dunn has double the worries of the other saved souls… Like his son is Nephilim too. Of course a demon so evil would target any child of those he’d already made deals for. And the problems he’s had since coming to the school of people assuming he sold his son’s soul has caused him and Norberto to shy away from others and drama.

And mating would bring drama, but still, Shane has always hoped that his mate was a Hellhound once he learned about them. Dreaming of the love some of the others have.

Colton Sethos is an impatient, loud guy every day of the week, but he likes munchkins. They’re cute, and teaching them martial arts soothes some of the hurt he endured taking souls to Hell. Never would he have thought his mate was one of the parents of his new karate class.

Things start off great, but when Norberto starts acting out and Shane picks his son over Colton, is there really a chance for them to be together forever?

Shane was a save soul just like his son. They were both Nephilim and evil wanted them both. When they were first saved and brought to the school everyone wanted to throw blame on Shane, saying he sold his son but that wasn’t the truth. So he kept his son and himself away from the others. That is until one of the hellhounds figures out he is his mate.

Colton is a loud mouth hell hound who wants what he wants right then and now. But he loved teaching the kids. Finding out that one of his student’s father is his mate sends him into a sight to see. But the kid is just a bit jealous of his father and Colton. Going to need to be calm, cool and collected now.

When one thinks hellhound, they think evil and death. Now granted they were originally from hell and they can kill who they think need to die, these guys are different. Now even though there is a bit of angst with each character, which at times can drive a reader nuts, there is very little danger. This one is a bit different as is Garnet being in trouble but no outside danger.

Other than that I had a blast reading this story. It caught my attention from the moment I started reading and kept it all the way to the end. It also gave me everything I could want in a book.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Each book in the Eternal Flames Maddox collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order. This story is connected to Eternal Flame as well as a couple others.

Casimir lost his wife and his parents to the war along time ago. In fact they had though that the dragons and phoenix’s. He thought it was just his luck to loose all he loved. When they found out that several survived including his brother he was jolted in surprise. Then to find out that his wife had left him with two sons, he was terrified. Then to find out he had a mate, he just thought he would loose them all, so he kept his distance. Then Sut is trapped in a cave in and well he let his heart rule.

Sut had given his heart to Cas but feared that it was all a dream. To be his dirty little secret, well to hell with that, Sut was giving up. Then when the world tilted and he was stuck in a cave, well the voice of his mate kept him sane. However fear still came forward not knowing what to expect from Cas.

First off this was probably the best book out of the whole series and that was saying something, cause this series rocked. I was reading and got to the point of Cas singing, and went and put on the song. So imagine the story going around in your head while the song is playing just made the story stand out even more. I felt for Sut and was glad that Casimir got his head out of his ass, but damn the ending was funny as hell. Who knew fate had a twisted sense of humor.

I had a blast reading this and can guarantee that it is one of those types of stories that will be read many times over. I can’t wait to read the next book. I would definitely recommend this book and the others connected to it.

Blurb: Emperor Chrysander Draconis rules not only the dragons but the entire Council of Sorcery and Shifters. From the moment Fate selected him, he has devoted himself to ensuring his people thrive and prosper. His life revolves around duty; nothing stands in the way of his dedication to his job. One of the most prominent issues on Chrysander’s plate is the lack of hybrid drakelings that have survived the road from man to beast. When he receives word that one such rare soul is living in an obscure tribe, he races to help.

Ellery of the Fen-Lynthi elves is different from the rest of his people. He does not understand why his ears are shorter, why he stands taller than the others. Then his mother explains why the other children mock him and call him a mongrel: his father, a dragon, abandoned her the moment he learned of Ellery’s impending birth. With his mother’s often-fragile mental state, Ellery does not know if he can trust her words, but they are all he has. He spends his days ostracized, doing what he can to improve his lot.

Chrysander is overjoyed to find his mate among the Fen-Lynthi, but when it is confirmed that Ellery is half dragon, he is terrified Ellery will be ripped apart by the beast inside him. Regardless, Chrysander proceeds with their matebond ceremony, though he delays the event, believing duty demands they bypass elven tradition. This troubles Ellery, and he wonders if moving forward is what Chrysander truly wants. Their schedules present them with little opportunity to spend time together, which gives him further cause for worry. If that isn’t enough, Ellery is apprehensive over his new role as emperor. Chrysander and Ellery must confront their fears and learn to face the world as a united and loving front. In doing so, not only will they be able to defy the impossible, but they will change the world.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: I loved this story. Chrysander finally gets his story and meets his mate Ellery. However he his duties get in the way of their mating but Ellery just takes it in stride. These two needed to talk to another. They only seemed to catch snatches of time with each other in between meetings, shopping, etc. I really felt for Ellery but Ellery soon finds a best friend and a champion in Tiri, Zane’s mate.

I have to admit to Tiri stealing my heart in this book. I was incensed at the way his chieftain treated his people. I do hope they can save those left behind. Tiri was smart, stubborn, sarcastic and generally a happy person. I really loved how the author wove the story around these couples with all the twists and turns that were revealed the story flowed off the page. I really enjoyed the tension, the mystery and suspense that revolved around the group for one thing or another.

I have to admit to not caring for Wesley in this addition. I think he let his job go to his head and assumed everyone would just do what he said. I especially didn’t care for the things he said about Ellery or Tiri. But, I have all ideas he is about to find out what happens when you mess with dragons mates if the plan he devised at the end of the book follows through.

This series just keeps getting better and better with each new book. I am in awe of how well the story is told and the characters that are involved with each new thrilling read. My favorite series to date.

Highly recommended.

The Life Siphon 01
by

Kathryn Sommerlot

A magical energy drain is siphoning life from the land and leaving a twisted, decaying wasteland in its wake.

Safely isolated in his forest home, Tatsu wants nothing to do with the drain or the other citizens in the kingdom of Chayd. The only people he cares about are his childhood friend and her strangely prophetic sister, but there’s no avoiding the threat once Tatsu is arrested and taken to the capital. The Queen of Chayd offers Tatsu his freedom—but only in exchange for sneaking into the neighboring kingdom of Runon and stealing whatever is powering the siphon.

Ravenous trees and corrupted predators lie between Tatsu’s team and their prize, but the drain’s destruction is nothing compared to Runon’s high mages, determined to protect their weapon. As the truth of the siphon’s power reveals itself, Tatsu faces an impossible question: how much is he willing to sacrifice to save one man’s life?

What if that one man could destroy everything?

PRISONER OF SHADOWS IS THE SECOND BOOK IN A SERIES, BUT CAN BE READ AS A STAND ALONE NOVEL.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: I enjoyed the mix of mythology and vampires plus the way the vampires were connected to the deities. That was ingenious. It was interesting to see how Prometheus deals with and adjusts to a world he has not been in a very long time. When Julian and Prometheus meet after Julian saves him the two hit it off.

I loved that Julian wanted to protect Prometheus from any harm. I always find it fascinating to see how a character is going to react when h suddenly is put in situations he has never been in before. It was a joy to see Prometheus come into his own as he traverses this new world with Julian by his side.

I loved reading about the different deities as the story progressed. Cerebus was a delight and not the frightful beast that is portrayed in movies.I simply loved everything about this story.

Fantastic read.

Review: Each Book in the Kaliss collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters I would recommend reading them in sequential order. This story is connected to the Eternal Flames and the Eternal Flames Maddox series.

Jael and Sabien are mates which should be celebrated however Sabien won’t even acknowledge it. However Sabien has his reasons for putting it all on hold. That is until Helio shows up and Jael sees the reaction and reacts. The little dragon finds an old friend and all hell breaks loose when Helio goes to all links to find the rest of them.

Fascinating as always and so damn entertaining. I love how new characters for futures series keeps showing up and promising a good time. Action packed, excitement overload, danger filled and lets not forget some very hot sexy times are just a bit of what you get in this story. The characters are charming, feisty and I love reading their story. It caught my attention from the start and kept it all the way to the end.

I had a blast reading this and can’t wait to get my hands on the next story. I can guarantee that this is one of those stories that will be read many times over. I would definitely recommend this book.

Blurb: When Vincent sold himself to a vampire, he did not expect to become the slave of Maddox Caine. Now struggling to accept the feelings of passion he’s grown toward his master, he’s agreed to follow Maddox into a war he never knew existed. This is what he’s been waiting for: to fight, to avenge, and to win. But what happens when another vampire threatens to put Vincent’s heart, not just his loyalties, to the test?

Emory Hudson was never meant to live past childhood. His uncle managed to save his life at every turn, but now Emory finds himself alone, on the desert, with an enemy claiming to be his ally. They both seek the one thing that can be fatal to a First Born vampire. Paired with this unexpected accomplice, Emory scours the Wastelands in search of the poisonous flower. No matter what the sacrifice, he will kill the Governor of Sanctuary Hope and save his uncle. It’s the least he can do.

In this depraved and desolate world, can Vincent learn to see that there is more to vampires than an insatiable lust for blood? And will Emory free his uncle before the war divides them forever?

WARNING: This world is a treacherous place. Creatures have evolved into unforeseen habitats, and beyond the elusive Sanctuary Cities, human survivors have been reduced to nothing more than bloodthirsty maniacs. It is not for the faint-hearted and due to the extreme level of high heat, it is for mature audiences only. This series will only get darker and better.

ISBN: B07JQYLD5F

Product Link: Amazon US | Amazon UK

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: I love all types of characters but I believe I have found a character I absolutely despise as a MC and that is Maddox. There is no redemption for this vampire in my eyes. My heart is breaking that Vincent seems to have Stockholm syndrome where Maddox is concerned and believes he must endure Maddox treatment as a way to save his people. Enough about Maddox lets move on.

There is Cerebus, who I am on the fence about as I do not know enough about to say one way or another whether I like him or not. Emory meets Nick but is wary of him and I do not blame him with everything he has been through. There is a war brewing on the horizon and things are being planned as allies are being made.

I do like this series but Maddox is a bit much for me. I do not like him whatsoever. I cannot imagine him having any feelings for anyone other than his own wants and needs. I was hoping he would change in this story but alas he has not.

I am curious as to what the war will bring and who all will be involved in the battle if it comes to that.
