Labeled the ‘black wolf’ at the Feline Coalition Kiplin relished the unflattering moniker.  After surviving an abusive bitch of an aunt while growing up it was time to have some fun and if it irritated others, well Kiplin could live with it.  As a solider it was his job to put down the bad guy by any means necessary as far as he’s concerned. Too bad others didn’t think he fought fair.

 

Recently Kiplin was reunited with his younger brother, one of the lost shifter children.  The differences between the siblings is almost comical with Kiplin living on the edge, caustic at best and his little brother Kyle a strictly by the book studious guy.  At least Kyle has a mate to keep him safe and happy which is more than Kiplin ever had.

 

Panther shifter Brody left his pack after discovering what the Alpha and his cronies were up to.  He figures it’s only a matter of time before the old pack catches up to him.  With the help of his cousin North he’s joined the Feline Coalition where Brody’s been told that his IT skills are badly needed.  Wrestling with a way to tell his new commander the secrets he learned while adjusting to a fresh start Brody comes in contact with the last person he expected to meet. Kiplin, his mate.  Watching the soldier and the computer geek together is proving highly amusing for everyone at HQ.

 

Emotional issues take center stage in Kiplin’s Coming Out.  The characters are easy to empathize with and the plotline flows with authentic action and humor.  Kiplin’s feelings of isolation, his inadequacy in dealing with a brother, and finally his fears of messing things up with Brody combine to make Kiplin’s Coming Out an emotionally charged story.  Another truly entertaining tale with the Lost Shifter family.

The Birds of Prey are tasked with stopping the Keres female spirits death-army, the Blood Demons from slaughtering the human race.  One such team is sent to guard Atlanta by the goddess Athena.

 

Ever since Wren met Sebastian he’s been drawn to the young man.  Wren would like nothing more than to embrace his mate whole heartedly.  But he can tell that Sebastian is holding back, something is keeping his mate from accepting his destiny alongside Wren.  Sebastian wonders if Wren will want him if he knew the truth of his origins.  It’s only a matter of time before Wren finds out.  It may mean the difference in the war against the Blood Demons.  Without help from the gods they are doomed.

 

Warming Up Sebastian neatly balances a deadly threat with a high octane romance.  Sebastian and Wren wade through a war with integrity and grit.  Hot sex and a real fear of failure make for a challenging drama in Warming Up Sebastian.  The Birds of Prey series is a dark love story and needs to be read in order to be appreciated.

Without significant aid the Birds of Prey in Atlanta won’t survive the onslaught of the Blood Demons.  They are multiplying too quickly.  The goddess Athena has admitted that some major cities have already fallen, the warriors have perished alongside the humans they were trying to protect.

 

Wren’s mate Sebastian, a demi-god, enlists the help of his foster brother Fallon, son of the god Hades and the goddess Persephone.  Hades has an army of dead soldiers he may call upon in times of war.  Their numbers might just turn the tide if he agrees to leave the Underworld and help them.

 

Fallon’s introduction to the Birds of Prey and their mates goes well.  Too well perhaps because the moment he lays eyes on Raven the young god is completely smitten.  Even though the god does not bear a mating mark he insists they are meant to be together and nothing will sway him.  Protecting Raven at all costs becomes Fallon’s priority. But after training and fighting for so many years how will Raven react to being left behind when the fighting begins in earnest?

 

As the body count rises tensions flare between lovers in a unique drama.   The fourth installment in the Birds of Prey series draws deadly battle lines in Fallon’s Raven.  As gods go, Fallon is honest and forthright.  His only weak spot is his feelings for Raven even though they aren’t destined mates. Against the backdrop of impending war their complicated love story plays out.  Fallon’s Raven focuses on a complicated romance as war approaches.  This series needs to be read in order of appearance.

Blowing up his home with his parents inside was something Lucas will never live down even though it was a complete accident.  If that wasn’t horrible enough, Lucas is then picked up by humans and taken straight to a Warlock Internment Camp even though he was only fifteen at the time.

 

Ten long, tortuous years in the ridiculously termed ‘rehabilitation camp’ and Lucas is slowly, painfully dying from neglect and starvation.  The only thing keeping him going is Charlie, a childhood friend captured two years ago who’s also dying there.  They manage to keep each other from completely losing hope, but soon it won’t matter.

 

Lucas and Charlie are in such desperate straits that when help comes they don’t even realize it at first.  Members of the resistance, free warlocks, break into the camp and liberate everyone.  Among the group is Andor, a fighter and a doctor who can’t believe the state of the prisoners.  It’s questionable if Lucas and the others will even heal.  If they do it’s a long road and after meeting Lucas there’s nothing Andor won’t do to help the young warlock, nothing at all.  Mending a broken body is one thing, a shattered soul something else entirely.

 

Author Stephani Hecht pens an exciting, emotional drama in Warlock Unbound, book two in the Detroit City Warlocks series.  The character’s sense of desolation and sorrow comes though so well.  His lack of belief in himself and uncertainty in Andor’s love is sometimes overwhelming.  A positive outcome in Warlock Unbound makes all the angst worth wading through in this story.  Lucas and Andor deserve all the happiness they can hold onto.

Five young feline shifters band together after discovering each other on the streets.  They became homeless after shifting in front of their adoptive families.  Barely surviving they were forced to steal simply to feed themselves.

 

A soldier with the Feline Coalition stumbles across the group and manages to talk them into visiting the facility by promising safety if nothing else.  Bowie can’t believe they’ve lasted as long as they have on the streets.

 

Once they agree to stay Bowie is assigned to mentor them, which isn’t a problem in general, though it does put a crimp on getting closer to their sexy little leader, Kit.  The next block in the road is finding out that Kit has an older brother who’s protective of his newly discovered baby brother. Regardless, Bowie will give Kit the time he needs to realize they are meant for each other. Because the hot tiger will be his.

 

Kit’s Return adds a feel good drama to the long running Lost Shifters series.  Bowie saves young shifters and finds love within the group.  Discovering an older sibling also adds another interesting wrinkle to the story.  Though their mating takes time it’s worth the wait.  Another first rate addition with engaging characters and an entertaining plotline.
