My Review for Deceit & Lies by AK Michaels:
Brilliantly different read by AK Michaels. Set in a dystopian future rather than a paranormal present day, this book had an entirely different feel. It felt quite dark and gritty but still with the edge of humour you expect from Ms Michaels.
The world has been plagued by a inter-species war and witches have been hunted to almost extinction due to a dark prophesy. Rose is part witch, part werewolf and the survivor of a witch hunt when she was a young child. Left with a guardian whilst her father hunted those who hunted them, she is trained well…too well you could say by her fathers friend, Seth, and becomes a lethally effective assassin – The Black Rose.
She is sought out by the Demon, Basilius, to take down a rogue Vampire, Cassius Allarde, who is seeking to unite all “supers” under his commend and take over the world and hunt humans without regard. But Rose does not follow orders blindly, she researches her targets well and only kills when she knows, without doubt, that they are worthy of death.
When she goes to meet the engimatic Cassius, under the guise of working for him, she is hurt by a “super” and wakes up under Cassius’ care. The man she meets has little in common with the intel she has been provided. So Rose gets to work determining the fate of Cassius and his followers before she concludes her assignment.
NO spoilers here but there is a cliffie (damnit!!!). I loved all these new characters. Rose, mysterious hybrid assassin; Seth – Ex Special Forces Soldier and Witch; Cassius – Vampire High Duke and all around hottie and Basilius – the new power hungry Demon leader of the Council (think paranormal UN).
There are also great secondary characters that I hope we see more of in the other books in the series such as Sue and Valentine (who I think are adorably self effacing). There are also a slew of icky bad guys that by the end of the book you will be making up your own tortures to inflict on them (Ms Michaels writes really good slimebags!!!!)
I read this in one go as I could not put it down and it was a well paced story with snappy dialogue and great interplay between the characters – both allies and protagonists! There are also nods to other paranormal authors throughout the book, Ms Michaels is not afraid to highlight the work of other authors to her large fanbase or to take a pop at certain sparklies!
Her Dragons Fire by Julia Mills
Aidan, in dragon form, caught scent of Grace and recognized her as his mate six years prior to this book beginning. Distracted by her, tragedy struck and he lost his brother. Grief-stricken, Aidan has blamed himself for his brothers death and stopped looking for his mate.
While searching for the mages, the Dragon Guard learn that Andrew was still alive and now infused with Dark Magic. Aidan discovers that his Commanders mate, Kyndel (from book 1), is his mates ,Grace, best friend and in the six months since, Aidan has avoided Grace because she would be in danger if it was known she is a Dragon Guard mate. Aidan now temporarily lives in Kyndels old apartment. Grace keeps in touch with Kyndel by phone and knows that Rayne’s ‘brother’ stays in the apartment.
Grace is a lawyer in the prosecutors, office chasing down leads for a kidnapper called ‘The Auctioneer’. After a lengthy work session, Grace decides to crash in Kyndel’s place, and she and Aiden finally meet.
This was a great story, set over quite a condensed period of time. The action is a break neck speed and there are great flashbacks to when Andrew was a guard and a good guy! The glimpses of conscience he shows are nipped in the bud by his revenge based new existence.
I’m settling nicely into this series and am falling for these dragon shifters in a big way!
