I love this world and the three Hell Cops in question. Astrid Amara’s story with Brian and Jay is my favourite. I love them all but for some reason I connect with that one the most. Anyway, it was great and if you like paranormals with smokin’ hot men (literally) I say get Hell Cop 1 and 2.(less)

This is Tole and Ridley’s story more or less. They are settling in with Pablo from book 1 but Tole’s feeling a bit blue. He starts talking to Ridley and thinks maybe something could happen between them. Meanwhile people start disappearing and Ridley is kidnapped by some witchy woman from a neighboring city and the three guys set off to get him back and stop her killing spree. I was sooooo not ready for it to end. Book 3, must get ASAP. Can’t wait for more.(less)

Post global warming, everything gone to hell in a handbasket and reverting back to a more basic primitive world with lots of superstition and zenophobia. Bear and Lynx find Dragon trespassing on their land. Having sex with anyone outside your tribe is punishable by death (holy crap) but Bear is drawn to Dragon as they are both curious about the old world (also punishable by death – double crap). They quickly decide to set off on their own risking cannibals and other dangers to be together. As I said, for 44 pages a lot was packed in their on top of the relationship. I’d love to read more about them and the world created.(less)

Gaven is captured by the invading army that destroyed his keep. Seems that Gaven was not who he thought but is the son of the commander of the invading army. In their culture young recruits are given to an older solder for "training" (if you know what I mean). Seems he's to be given to Vlar (some kind of blood drinking creature). Gaven is freaked as being gay was baaaad in his culture and he really can't accept that he's one of the "enemy". His father's lover convinces them to give him some time and tries to explain things to him but Gaven still can't accept it (especially the butt secks part) so first chance he gets he runs. Vlar finds him and rescues him from baddies but when his father goes to punish the guards he takes their punishment. He's nearly whipped to death but the soldiers take him in and help him because they respect him for doing it. After he recovers and they get home he is officially given to Vlar and has his "first time". Then .... the end. What? How can you end it? Took me forever to get into it and then when I do .... nothing. What's the deal with the wolves and Vlar and will Gaven's father ever forgive him for running? Will he come to crave the butt secks? Sigh. The whole relationship storyline started on the last page more or less. So despite my lack of interest in these type of fantasy stories I would get a sequel because I want to have my questions answered. Which I'm not sure I applaud as good marketing or pisses me off that you suck me in and know I'll have to buy the next book now. It wasn't very long and I would have loved more explanation of things, the differences between Gaven's old people and new, how he came to be with them, etc. Some stuff was alluded too but not very clearly. While not to my taste I liked it enough to want to know more.
I believe since I wrote this review (and forgot to post it way back in the day) there is a sequel, I think. I haven't read it yet anyway.(less)

Its kind of got two parallel stories that meet up. Ridley and Tole have fallen in love but Ridley feels badly that he has to feed from others because he doesn’t want to turn Tole so he decides to leave town for a while so Tole can find someone else. (Dumbest reason ever but whatever). He gets an e-mail from an old friend/lover who runs the pleasure city (you name it you can get it) so decides to check it out. Meanwhile the three have heard bad things about the pleasure city, kids, slaves, really bad stuff and after breaking up with his girlfriend Zee says he’ll go and check it out in person. Zee meets up with his ex’s boyfriend (who’s now his boyfriend, tut-tut) and gets roped into participating in a “game” and meets up with Ridley. Of course the game is totally fixed and Ridley calls Tole to come help and get them all out of their with their heads still on. I really enjoyed the story. Lots of intrigue and nasty stuff with some tender love story between Ridley and Tole and poor Zee, still looking for love. A great read I enjoyed.(less)
