Ah, Scotland, an Art History student's wet dream. Gorgeous old castles, great booze, sexy locals with even sexier accents, and even a gory ghost story or two.

Knock Castle seems to have offered him opportunities for both -- all the ex ...more

This story and Cruce de Caminos separately introduce the two main characters of Layers of the Otherworld series.
Out of the Tombs, Exceedingly Fierce introduces Cormac through the eyes of a Canadian tourist Maxwell, who is in Scotland taking pictures and trying to sort out his personal life. One night at the haunted ruins of the castle would help him decide what to do with his relationship. It is a great short story and even better start for a series. It isn't about Cormac, but you get an idea
It proved to be an interesting reading.

Recommends it for: Folks looking for a little light m/m titlation
This is a fun short story. I liked the atmosphere of the setting and the sexy boldness of the protagonist, Maxwell. It's a quick read, but I certainly got a feeling for Maxwell and his relationship problems at home :). It's not too deep, has some fun action, in both an exciting-spooky and a sensual sense.

All in all, good way to take up 20 mins.

Whoa. We meet Cormac here for the first time in all his aggressive, dominant, sexy glory.

Marshall, a tourist looking for great photo ops meets up with Cormac, Druid sorcerer, in the ruins of haunted Knock Castle, Scotland. Night falls and evil sets chase. This free quickie is packed with action, horror, sharp, hot sex and wonderful language and imagery.

"The moonlight made his skin and hair glow gold, like he was some kind of god, ancient and beautiful..."

Maxwell encounters redcaps and Cormac in Ireland. A art trip that is kind of cute and remiss because of Max's ex Nick, makes one wonder who Cormac lost and what else he's fought of the monsters and supernatural.

An enjoyable short story, rather lighter and less polished than others I've read by these authors maybe. Obviously a snippet from a larger universe that raised interesting questions about the supernatural and then distracted us with sex from pondering the answers!

A short, sexy introduction to the swarthy Cormac. He's got some attitude that counters Maxwell's free spirited exuberance. We see that both men are hurting and in need of someone who understands them.

Disappointing. I couldn't stand the main character, which is good because he has sex with Cormac and Cormac is destined for another.

Not as perfectly crafted or significant as Harm Reduction, which really blew me away. But I still liked it well enough.

Nice short addition to the series.

Great short short story. I kind of wish these authors would write a straight up horror story because they're so good at otherworldly, underworldy, creepy ghosty things. This one had me at the edge of my seat for a few pages. The sexy times were fun, too.
Damn! Wish there were more.
