Review: You are purchasing Siren’s newest imprint, the Siren Epic Romance collection. This is Book 1 of 7 in the Chronicles of the Shifter Directive series. The series shares an overall story arc with many crossover characters playing major roles in each book. These books are not stand-alone and should be read in their numbered order.
If there was a way to give a book higher marks than I would have made this one on the scale of six in heart ratings. This story was so different in many of the ways paranormals are written. You read many stories about werewolves and vampires being killed by humans and this is not the case.
It is bad enough when you’re a paranormal and all the others are trying to kill you or destroy you. However when it is your own family, they are in definite need of help. Several hundred years ago the originals were born. Talrasar and Kaelezrin were mates. Tali was a Fae and Kael was a black dragon. A black dragon was considered pretty much bad news. They consumed all energies from everyone around them.
However Tali was never afraid of him. Even when the war going on around them involving the wolves and vampires, plus the plague going on around them. The only way to save everyone was for Kael to take Tali’s energy from him and destroy it all. The problem was it killed them both. They had committed suicide to save those around them.
Now with the dangers that everyone is having, and Sari’s brother trying to kill him, it is time for them to come back. They save Sari’s baby and those around them, but it does cause some problems. It is a bit hard to understand how two dead can come back to life. The dangers are coming out of the woodwork and now they all have to find out who the traitor is, destroy those who are trying to kill them and save themselves while they are at it.
I must admit that even though I loved this book, there was so much description that parts are a bit harder to follow. It didn’t affect me too bad though, I couldn’t stop reading it. It gave me everything I could possibly want in a story if not more. I love the different paranormals that are in these books.
I was not so sure about the woman with all the snakes in her hair though. She sounded quite freaky but it was a blast to read. I love how there is so much danger, and you can tell that each character loves the other, but they have to fight for their love. I loved this book and look forward to reading the next book.
I would recommend reading this book. It gives you gorgeous men, dragon shifters, Fae, excitement, suspense, action, twists, some hot sex, and lots of danger.
Trust me you have got to read this book.
