Review: I’ve been waiting for this all year and WOW! It was worth the wait. This is book three of the Men of Myth series and I do suggest you read them all in order to get the full impact. The covers are also brilliant!

This series is like getting three stories in one. It has three characters and we get viewpoint from all three. I loved this. When a view changes it tells us at the beginning of that chapter so it isn’t confusing at all, though both Brett and Finn are in two separate places now and that makes it easy to tell whose view also.

Speaking of separate places let’s start with Finn. Finn and his sister Caitlin and his new boyfriend Schwint embark on a mission to go to the Vampire Cathedral to rescue Cynthia, Finn’s sister. We get one another look at the Square. This world is very supernatural and dark. You have all sorts of creepies there. I loved how this was a supernatural world blended in the human world.

Now let’s move on to Costa Rica and the Vampire Cathedral. This is the main setting where Finn is throughout this story. We meet Gwala the Vampire king, if you want to know more about him read the prologue. I love how he looks like a child, but it’s clear he isn’t a child or sweet as his appearance lets us believe. This is a vampire that would give Dracula a run for his money. He summoned Finn because Finn possesses powers he doesn’t even realize he has and Gwala needs the strongest witches and warlocks he can find.

Now on the world Brett is in. Brett has been living under the sea with his father and the Chromis tribe for the past six months. I think this is one of my mot favorite supernatural worlds I have read to date. It’s mystical and magical and I felt I was right there swimming along with the mers.

The descriptions are beautiful, paint a picture, and fits in with the action and dialogue so it never gets boring. Just when you think it can’t get any better the tribe moves along to another place even more beautiful and mystical.

Now for the story. I love this story it’s poignant and heartfelt, mystical, magical, dark and heart-wrenching at times. This is definitely not a Cinderella love story or a sparkling vamp romance. It’s extremely emotional and full of angst. There were several surprising twists that left me in shock. I will say near the end it brought tears to my eyes. Though there are only a couple of sex scenes, but they are quite the scorchers. I cannot wait to see more from this series.

If you like strange, mystical supernatural worlds, Demons, vampires, mermaids and mermen, Witches , Warlocks and Fairies, drama, mystery, angst and lots of twists and turns this one is definitely for you

Review: Rising Frenzy picks up where the Submerging Inferno ended so I do suggest you read this series in order. This book is sort of like getting three books in one. We get Finn’s side and also more on what’s going on with Brett, plus a bonus.

We begin with Finn after Brett left. Finn isn’t dealing well with the heartbreak. Finn searches for Brett at first, and then tries to get over him in some not so great attempts. Finn has a voice in his head that is pressuring him to be in the square, a seedy supernatural community and he gets involved in Spor, a sex drug, and meets Shwint a fairy.

There is a lot going on in Finn’s story, some highs and lows, its dark and sad. My heart broke for Finn. I will say there were times I wanted to shake him or just slap the crap out of him.

Brett’s story isn’t as sad as Finn’s, as Brett found his father and is trying life in the ocean with his newfound Mer family. This story dealt with acceptance, and Brett still dealing with all that is going on in his life, loss, what he is, his new life, and having to accept the rules of the tribe of Mers he has joined. There is lots of action in this part of the story and as in Finn’s story it’s emotionally deep, yet not as dark.

The third story was quite a surprise. I loved how the Author brought this character in with a story of its own. It’s briefer but quite intriguing. I will not tell you who it is you will have to buy the book and find out.

There were several new characters introduced, as well as some of the ones from the other book such as all of Finn’s family. All of the characters are so well done and intriguing. Some you will love, some you may hate.

There are also two new worlds in this book. You have the square; a dark, seedy supernatural community with drugs, sex, danger and all sorts of strange characters. I loved it, though it’s not for the faint of heart. There is also a peek at a fairy community that is so much fun with its lights, sounds, the food and drink; it also added a little light to balance out some of the darkness.

Then there is the underwater world. It is so intriguing. The entire journey is beautiful; the colors, the sea life. I felt like I was under there and a mermaid in the journey with Brett and his newfound family. I loved all of these new characters.

I cannot wait to see where the next book takes us and how these character’s lives may entwine once again or even if they do.
I highly recommend this if you like paranormal (vampires witches, werewolves, fairies), Fantasy (mermaids, demons, nymphs) New worlds, both supernatural and fantasy and underwater-worlds, dark, deep, emotional stories, and some fairly hot mansex.

If you’re looking for something new and different, but dark and deep this series is fantastic. It will make you angry at times and happy at others. I absolutely love everything about this series.

Blurb: Brett Wright and Finn de Morisco come from vastly different worlds. Disowned by his family for being gay, Brett builds both a life on his own terms and walls around his emotions. But nothing can prepare him for the evil that stalks him in the night or from discovering the dark secrets of his heritage.

The youngest of a doting family, Finn lives a sheltered life that allows him to trust easily and makes him quick to jump to the rescue. While using his knowledge of the supernatural world to help Brett uncover the truth of his ancestry, Finn learns nothing in life is as simple and risk-free as he believed.

New knowledge comes with a price—one that may prove too high for them to pay.

Review: Brett Wright is twenty-three and even though his grandfather has recently passed he still feels as if he can’t go to his grandmother thinking that she too had turned him away when his grandfather did when he came out. He is also realizing that things about him seem to be changing.

He has always liked being in the ocean but now he seems drawn to it. After being stalked by a strange man he sets fire to himself yet, doesn’t burn. He wakes up with a hot man who turns out to be a witch.

Sound good yet? Now add in the man stalking him is a vampire and he finds out that being gay is the least of his problems.

I absolutely loved this book. There is a lot going on. It is very different from most vampire stories and it really isn’t a romance. There is a lot of dealing with inner turmoil, finding oneself, loving and losing.

Brandon has such a way with description that pulls you right into the story. I felt like I was in the water with Brett, at the funeral, hurting, all of it. This is an incredible new world of paranormal with very interesting new types of creatures.

I will warn you though; this story probably isn’t for everyone. There are some scenes of rape and violence and it’s riddled with angst.

I highly recommend this to any one that likes a heartfelt story full of love, and angst, finding out what you are, new worlds, new and interesting creatures, heartache, loss, and some pretty hot man-sex.
