Blurb: A Men of Myth Story
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 heart. 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 neither his magical life nor falling in love 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.
Don’t miss Finn de Morisco’s continuing story in Rising Frenzy, A Men of Myth story.
Review: I keep saying that fantasy/paranormal is not my thing, but I keep finding authors that write it in a way that is impossible for me to put the book down.
I was expecting the bloodbath, the scary vampire and the mythical creatures. What I was not expecting was to choke up on my emotions and end up almost crying over a demon and a warlock’s love story.
I am ready for more.
Where to start? This book was such a trip. The writing is fabulous. The descriptions, the details the author puts into every setting, it was like watching a movie.
If you are a fan of fantasy, let me tell you you are in for a treat. All the mythical creatures you can think of have a place in this book. And they are not just there, they have to be there for their own reasons. Vampires, demons, warlocks (love them), witches – can’t be without them, werewolves, Nymphs – so, so beautiful and… I am going to leave that one for you to find out, as it might be spoiler-ish.
Anyway, as it is, it was a beautiful story. Honestly, the Nymphs were such a powerful presence.
A turmoil of emotions, I found myself almost crying several times, and it was not an angsty book but Finn’s and Brett’s relationship will take over the story at some points and it just felt like there was so much going on, so many feelings at once; it overwhelmed me.
Brett comes from a broken family, disowned by his grandfather, unsure of his grandmother’s stand in the whole situation. He has been on his own for a long time. Just him and his BFF, Sonia.
Finn comes from a large and loving family. Loving parents, sisters that might be a bit crazy but adore each other, nephews, lots of noise, everyone caring and protecting each other.
But that is not the only thing that makes Brett and Finn different, and it is not the only thing they have in common.
Adrenaline running high as Brett is being stalked by a thirsty vampire, putting everyone he loves at risk. Rising questions he never thought he would be asking and discovering secrets he didn’t even know existed.
I wanted to smack Brett in the head, but at the same time I understand his need to find who he is, or better what he is, on his own. I just hope that once he finds what he is looking for he goes back to Finn.
The author leaves us with our hearts broken, with our hopes running high and with the mother of all cliffhangers.
Give Me book 2…right now!
