Vertigo is the first novella in the The Vertigo Chronicles and introduces us to a world much like our own – expect a vertex has opened up and monsters from an alternate universe are filtering in at night to hunt humans for food or sport. One man with superhuman abilities named Simon goes out each night to battle the bad guys who cross-over.

One night… Simon traps a creature only to find out that it is a cherished person from his past (Jade) and he must reexamine his life and his quest.

Simon Saint-Saens is a hunter of dark creatures that come out from a world called Vertigol. Jaden Cole was a man Simon saved a long time ago, a man he left for safety, only to be murdered few months later. Or so he thought ... until Simon faces a were-wolf who turns into a human that reminds him of Jaden ...

I just got my first taste of M.L. Rhodes's story with Into the Woods and Falling (I did read Wanting but it was awhile ago and I couldn't really remember) and realized that her writings might

I'm a huge fan of M.L. Rhodes' books! There is just something about her style of writing that draws me fully into the story, makes me love the main characters, lets me experience the emotion, and revs up my engine when the m/m action kicks in!! This book had all of the above going for it. Simon and Jaden were exceptional characters - flawed but adorable. My only wish was that we could have had more prior history included in the book. I almost felt like I had missed a prior book in the series ...more

This is a terrible cover.
If I was one to judge books by their cover, this book would've shriveled in shame.
That said, I'm reading this electronically, so I don't have to stare at it in pain as I flip virtual pages.
The story is so short -- I can't get used to this shortness. It never feels finished, and really, they aren't -- they're all cliffhangers.
Mara Ismine
In this first part of the story the scene is set, the world is built and the main characters reveal deep secrets to each other. No guarantee of Happily Ever After for them with a Big Bad Demon on their trail, but they do decide to take as much Happy For Now as they can get.

I'm an opinionated chick with a decent sense of humor and a vocabulary that's way too smutty for someone who grew up as a "good" girl. I write books for a living...more specifically, gay male romance stories. I'm passionate about gay romance! I love sweet, steamy, emotional stories about gay men meeting, falling in love, and finding happily-ever-afters. I love to read them and I love to write ...more
