King Kabril, King of the Buteos Regalis is a bird shifter, specifically a hawk. His kingdom has been suffering. There have been no new children born in years. The streets no longer carry the sounds of children’s laughter. Morale is low, people are unhappy. It is prophesied that King Kabril must go to the human realm of earth and he will fi ...more
This was such a cute and fun read; I think I smiled all the way throughout the book. The characters connection was perfect as it showed a close friendship between the King Kabril and his loyal old friend and advisor “Sachin” as well as creating the friendship between Kabril and his future mate Rayna (human).
The romance between Kabril and Rayna grew sweetly with friendship and trust; and I loved how the relationship developed into an undeniable attraction between the two. ...more
Heat Rating: 3/4
Narrator Performance: 2/5 - DNF
· Good storyline.
· Fun secondary characters.
· Nice scenery descriptions.
· Well developed male protagonist.
· Appreciable world building.
· Made me want to continue reading the series.
· Rayna's acceptance of the paranormal. She barely batted an eyelash IMO.
· Though resolved, I feel that the conflict in Kabril's and Rayna's relationship was somewhat glossed over.
· Kabril's entitled, imperialistic behavior. I ...more
I just find this too short to have a development between the H and the h.
Overall, it wasn't a bad read.
I don't often read bird shifter book, but this was not too bad.
Kabril is King of the Eagles in a realm apart from Earth. They didn't really go into detail about this but the realm can only be accessed by some portals in the sky...like the Bermuda Triangle.
Kabril's people are having problems having babies so he comes to Earth to find his destined mate. I really liked his friend Sachrin. He convinces Kabril that he has to woo Rayna and get her to care for him. It gets pretty steamy.
We als ...more

I didn't feel very attached to any of the characters.
The sex was minimal. It was beyond young adult for certain but I wouldn't call it erotica.
The world setup wasn't too shabby. There's a world of avian shifters with magic and conflict bet ...more
I have to say that i really like how Mandy writes.
This story is short,funny,sexy and keeps your interest.
We meet the bird men royal hawks and specific we meet their king that the profecy has it he is to be mated to a human.
Kabril is not overly happy about that fact and tries to avoid it but he finds himsel in earth and overly drawn to Rayna.
Can these two find happiness?
A really sweet and funny story that will keep you reading and ...more
I loved the idea of this book. Unfortunately, it felt like it could have gone a bit smoother.
Not sure the characters, with their designations in the story, felt like they were developed enough.
It kills me that this could have gone a lot better, cause I know that I LOVED the theme and idea..
I WAS GIVEN THIS BOOK FOR AN HONEST REVIEW ........ OVER 18 + READING
King Kabril of Accipitridae(hawks) must face the prophecy that says fertility would be restored to his people if he takes a mate, but his mate is suppose to be in the Earth realm, those dirty, vile creatures and the last place he wants to look for a mate that he doesn't even want at all. Though their laws say he must do everything he can that is best for the kingdom. Now his advisor Sachin (39 ...more
– Her Cap of Awesome Books, that is! I am loving this series and bird shifters! Never mind the fact that this is my first bird shifter book & series! This review is for the first 3 books in the series & opens with King of Prey, A View to a Kill (book 2) and Master of the Hunt (book 3). I thought that Mandy did a great job with King of Prey in setting up the rest of the series. Their race & world is beautifully explained and Mandy did a terrific job de ...more
Unlike many books that I've read, there were only 3 main characters and a small handful of 'extras'. This worked out well as the story was not that long and allowed the reader to really enjoy the interaction of the three.
The book opens in the realm of Accipitridae. With King of the Hawks or Buteo Regalis, Kabril in a heated discussion with his chief adviser and long-time friend and companion, Sachin, arguing. Sachin, his adviser for his people had discerned that Kabril ...more

King Of Prey is a book which is sci fi /paranormal mixed with erotic romance. Kabril, King of Buteos Regalis, is seeking his mate who can help bring fertility back to his people. There is a prophecy stating that the mate would bring fertility back BUT the prophecy DID not mention she would be human and from another realm. Another problem Kabril has is that his kind believes humans are dirty and have to rely on artificial means ...more
**What is good about it?**
Her grammar, spelling, and sentence structure were very well done. Kudos to Team Roth.
The brotherly word play, sparring, jabs etc between Kabril & Sachin were laugh out loud funny at times. I could picture them like my brother and I fighting about stupid stuff. Hilarious! Reyna being the typical good girl next door giving him such a hard time was expected but endearing… and the tim ...more
King of Prey is a great start to the Bird Shifter series. I am so glad Mandy did an extended version, I just loved it. The character and their stories blend so seamlessly together I was quickly lost within the pages never wanting it to end.
Kabril, King of the Buteos Regalis knows war draws near for his people, for some it has been too long that they don't remember the devastation but for others in his realm it is harder to forget.
Rayna Vogel is a photographer and she is very good at her job, s ...more

Received from: Mandy M. Roth (in exchange for an honest review)
Grammar/editing: B – a few small errors
This is the first book in the King of Prey series. They do not need to be read in order, but I always recommend doing so anyway.
As a member of Mandy Roth’s review teams, I received Prince of Pleasure a few weeks ago and loved it. My only complaint at the time was that I hadn’t r ...more
