To survive, they’ll have to think outside the circle.

Were-lion Lachlan Garvey is closing in on the Brightwater women, the last of a Shamanic line that the Council wants eradicated for their murderous use of magic. One minute he’s in his animal form, examining a dead body in a patch of charred grass. The next, he wakes up human—naked, shot and lying in a circle of his own

I'd actually forgotten I'd preordered this until it magically appeared on my Kindle last night :P

One thing I love about Shona Husk is her ability to pack quite a bit of world-building into a fairly low word count, and this story was no exception.

Witches, shifters, and imminent disaster . . . oh my! This short story is lacking nothing. Despite the length, the reader is treated to suspense, danger, backstory and a little “sizzle” (having the hero naked for most of the story doesn’t hurt, either!).

While trying to make decisions that affect both herself and Lachlan (our hero), Dayna finds herself reading her mother's and recently deceased sister’s journals and performing magic sh

RECOMMENDED READ

Brightwater Blood by Shona Husk was an entertaining tale of discovery, and coming home. While it wasn't my normal cup of tea, it kept me riveted, and I had to finish it. I couldn't stop reading it.

So many times you find that books are bogged down by either too much description, or there's hardly any substantial story and its all sex. I know....I know! Most of the books that I read have a lot of sex in them, but this had only a bit of lite pettin
