Brian’s Mate by Hollis Shiloh & @dreamspinners

Today’s review is about Brian’s Mate by Hollis Shiloh.

Stars: 2BriansMateLG

From the book jacket:
Brian is the alpha of the least impressive pack of wolves at the whole Moon Ceremony. When a human is discovered uninvited in their midst, he bonds with the man to save his life.

Luke doesn’t know about all this wolf stuff, but he’s starting to develop feelings for the gentle man who rescued him. Both Brian and Luke expect to quietly dissolve the bond later. But feelings intervene, and some bonds are not so easy to cast aside.

Building a life together as alphas will take love and hard work—especially when new wolves keep inviting themselves into their lives.

Chronicles of Ylandre by Eresse & @LSB_lsbooks

Hallowed Bond - book jacket

Book jacket


Today I am reviewing the series Chronicles of Ylandre by Eresse. My last review was of the first book in the series, Sacred Fate and that is not part of this review. Although that book did slightly improve in the end, I stand by it’s 1 star rating.

Stars: 5

Book jacket from Hallowed Bond:

Can time heal all wounds? Dylen Teris and Riodan Leyhar are about to find out. Torn apart by circumstances beyond their control, they find themselves years later together once again. Even though attraction lingers, forgiveness isn’t so easy to obtain. Can these star-crossed lovers be reunited?

Sacred Fate by Eresse & @LSB_lsbooks

Today I am doing a partial review of Sacred Fate by Eresse.sacredfate

Stars: 1

Book jacket:

In the dual-gendered realm of Ylandre, the great divide between the high-born True Bloods and the lower-ranked Half Bloods is deemed impassable by most. Rohyr Essendri dared to cross it when he took young Lassen Idana from his provincial town and made him his paramour. Lassen perforce learned how to navigate the intricate byways of life at court. What he never expected, however, was to fall in love with Rohyr, a most inadvisable and impractical thing to do when one’s lover is sovereign ruler of the land. But anything worth having is worth fighting for, both figuratively and, as Lassen discovers, literally speaking.

Slipstream & Oculus by @MichaelOffutt


So today I’m reviewing two books by
Michael Offutt
. They are Slipstream and Oculus.

Stars: 5

What an amazing series Offutt has created here, I just finished Oculus and I cannot wait for book #3. He’s created a complex reality of two words – Earth and a parallel dimension Earth called Avalon. Essentially our hero Jordan is an unliklely superhero. A star of the hockey team at Cornell in Oculus, he essentially has to save the world. In Slipstream he’s dragged to Avalon to fight some baddies, but when he gets home to Earth, a year later more baddies show up. There’s a black tower he has to find, and friends who unfortunately die. Without spoiling the book for you, it’s an amazing journey!!

Sci-Regency series by @jl_langley & @samhainpub

Cover of

Stars: 5

The Sci-Regency series so far has 3 books. It is by JL Langley. My Fair Captain (2007), The Englor Affair (2008), and My Relegence Rake (2012).

The books take place in the far future in an area of space where they have chosen the Regency period of England to follow as a form of modern government. There are two planets, Relegance, and Englor. Both have gone in different directions. On Relegence they so badly wanted guys to run the place, that all the nobles are genetically engineered to be gay. Englor is more like current-day Earth with it’s homophobic society and expectations of the King to marry a woman.
