I loved it as much as I loved Myla by Moonlight! ... maybe even more!!!

Why? Because of both hero, Bryton and the heroine, Salome!

Both are wonderful people (ops... birdy... LOL). Very generous and giving. Bryton maybe too much. He, as he himself constantly reminds us, is ready to give his life for his king and country. It could have been annoying, but here I liked it because it was such a strong and true part of his being.

When Bryton loves, he loves deeply and fully...unconditionally! He doesn't

A fantasy romance novel about a man on a suicidal quest for revenge against the evil "Skullmen" and the bird-spirit-woman who is summoned by magic to console him. Of course, I read this because magical bird spirit person has to be one of the coolest ideas I've come across. Also, the book was only 99 cents, so what's the harm of trying it? was okay. The world-building was pretty generic fantasy-land, the bad guy was your generic fantasy bad guy, and the romance was okay but not compellin ...more

I’ve been sitting on this book for several months, pretty much since it came out back in June. Yeah, my TBR pile is that chaotic and out of control. But I finally read it yesterday. Sigh. I can’t believe I waited that long to read this book. It was fantastic.

Bryton is the the king’s captain, and decides to go on this suicide mission to end the guy that killed his wife. He doesn’t care if he lives or dies, but he wants the guy that killed his wife to pay for his crimes. The king is worried about

Salome at Sunrise is the second book in a romantic fantasy series but I noticed that after I already started the novel. Usually I really hate to read books out of order, it's one of those OCDs you just can't shed, but Salome at Sunrise drew me in nonetheless. At times I noticed that this has to be a book in a series and I felt like I missed some of the good stuff in the first book (btw it's Myla by Moonlight) but I never felt left behind or as if I missed any vital information.

Bryton Haruk has a sworn duty to protect his king and his country, but his duty has been difficult ever since the day he wife was killed by invaders. And now he finds the invaders returning and threatening all that remains dear to him. He swears vengence and justice, to be the lawful executioner of the invader's leader.

The King watches as Bryton is eaten up from within and summons a powerful spirit to help ease his pain and teach him to love life again. Salome, a bird-shifter, answers his summon
Bryton lost his wife to the murderous skullmen, he accepts dangerous missions hoping to die so he can be with her in the afterlife. Salome is a spell, a bird shapeshifter, controller of wind and peacekeeper, sent to give Bryton peace. Salome is very innocent, she doesn't know anything about the human world. At first it's just Salome and Bryton traking the skullmen hide out, then toward the end the skullmen interacting with each other and their slaves. There is a lovely scene with Bryton and Salo ...more

I really wanted to read this book after enjoying the first one, Myla by Moonlight. I felt that this was everything Myla was and more. The worldbuilding is richer and deeper. The characters are more emotionally complex, from the tortured hero Bryton to the innocent, yet not so innocent Salome to even the villain. It's as if Inez Kelley is really getting comfortable in her writing skin. Really hope there's a third book in the series!

AMAZING! As good as Myla by Moonlight. The ending wasn't as epic as MbM was (bawled like a baby) but it was just as emotional. I felt so badly for Bryton and was so happy that the love he had for his wife was not somehow 'less' than his love for Salome. His relationship with Katina was not shown to be tainted or lacking and his pain was real. I cannot wait for Kelley to announce the third installment (final?! no!) for Jana, Bryton's daughter with Katina. Love this universe by Kelley!!

The magic of this story is created by the ability of the author to make the reader believe in a living spell. I was pulled into the problems and anguish of Bryton's fight against the evil that took his wife and his guilt at his growing feelings for Salome. By the end of the story I was emotionally drained but happy.
