This one’s going to be a doozy to review without spoilers because most of the main plot line revolved around one major event that set a chain reaction in motion, but I am going to try. If I fail, well consider this your warning! Apparently Kelly Meade (Meding) is known for her dark writing style although admittedly I have yet to read her DREG CITY series; however that most certainly is proving to be the case as far as her CORNERSTONE RUN trilogy is concerned.

I can't say much about the plot because being book 2 there will be spoilers, so all I'm going to say is that this is Bishops story. We still get the POVs from other characters but we get a more in debt look at the middle child.

I loved book one of this trilogy, Black Rook and couldn't wait to read more from the McQueen brothers. Well I wasn't disappointed with this because wow this book was a rollercoaster. So many FEELS!!!

My English review

I had a great time with Brynn and Rook in the first volume and I was curious about Jillian and Bishop here. But fear not, because we find again with great pleasure all the characters we had previously discovered and it was interesting to see how everyone was changing.

Bishop and Jillian know that there is something between them, but they also know they can not get carried away by their passion. They are both vying to become the Alpha of their pack and a relati
I read this as a stand-alone, something I NEVER do in a series, and I am glad that I did. I loved this book. Really.

Gray Bishop is a tear jerking romance in the wake of devastating tragedy. There is no other way to describe it. It is intense, exasperating, and gripping, it will have you at the edge of your seat with tissue at hand.

Recent attacks on the loup garou are escalating forcing Half-breeds to seek refuge where they are not accepted, at wolf sanctuaries. Problem is, these sanctuaries tu

This is the second in a fast pace paranormal romance series, a dark tale with enough heartache, emotion and danger to satisfy paranormal romance readers that love different worlds and intriguing characters and plots.

Gray Bishop starts from where we ended Black Rook, actually a few hours before the end as we are privy to Bishop’s POV and his thoughts of the evening that Rook and Knight are kidnapped as they fight off the triplets. The group is reeling from the fight, needing to regrou

Gray Bishop follows Black Rook in the Cornerstone Run Trilogy and I found it to be a much more enjoyable book overall. It was action-packed and so many things happened to lead us toward the final conclusion... I definitely don't recommend jumping into the series with this book. Start from the beginning and enjoy the ride!

Gray Bishop is the second book in Kelly Meade’s Cornerstone Run Trilogy. This series is raw and heavy and emotional but also interesting and gripping and unique.

Even though this is a paranormal romance series there is a storyline that follows from one book to the next. The story is just as strong as the budding relationship and romance. Gray Bishop’s romantic focus is on Bishop and Jillian and how they beat the odds to be together.

This review was originally published at Vampire Book Club and was based on a copy provided by the publisher.

The McQueen brothers, Bishop, Knight and Rook (I love their names!) are the sons of the loup-garou alpha in Cornerstone Run. Bishop has been preparing his entire life to become the next alpha, working twice as hard to prove himself because he is a common gray wolf, while nearly all alphas are the elite black wolves. He’s starting to doubt his ability to protect his run since both of his br

I loved book one of this series and couldn't wait to get my hands on this book, though I'll be honest, I was more excited to get book three. The story of the white wolf and the tragedy that Knight has gone through really made me want to read his story. My real goal was to get through this one to get to the next. Boy, I was mistaken. This story was amazing and gives new meaning to tragic.

Kelly Meding Meade continues her Cornerstone Run trilogy with the story of oldest McQueen brother and future Alpha, Bishop. I found this book to be very consistent with the style and tone of book one, so if you liked Black Rook, I think you’ll like this one too.

As we begin, the pack is still reeling from the carnage in the last story. The brothers have all survived, but at a cost. Rook is scarred physically from an attack, Knight is a hot mess emotionally from his rape, and Bishop is internalizi

I always enjoy when series with revolving main characters keep the past main characters as a decent part of the book. GRAY BISHOP follows Bishop and Jillian as they fall in love, but Brynn and Rook are very much still a big part of the story. I really enjoy the family dynamic that comes with the McQueen family and was really heartbroken towards the end of book 2. The run and the McQueen's have been through so much, but GRAY BISHOP definitely feels like the biggest blow was thrown into the mix.

After being introduced to the Cornerstone world in the first book, Black Rook: the characters, the complicated plotting both for the suspenseful action and the near impossible romantic situations of the characters, I was ready for that heady, excitement for what I was reading to continue.

This is a interesting trilogy in that most of the main players are introduced in the beginning and their stories all start at the same time and are tied together. Several even get narration roles in each book s
Gray Bishop picks up right where Black Rook ends. Everyone is trying to deal with the aftermath of the craziness of the first book. There is still a huge threat out there that is bound and determined to take out the wolves and get their hands on Knight McQueen. This book focuses on Bishop, the eldest of the McQueen brothers. He’s the next alpha of the Cornerstone run, so he’s just as responsible for their pack as his father is.

Spoiler alert: Brynn cries some more. Jesus.

Bishop and Jillian’s story was better-rounded (?), and there is a ton more about Knight. Overall I felt this was a better story than Black Rook which was all about Brynn whimpering or crying.

Gray Bishop is the second instalment of a fantastic dark and gritty paranormal romance trilogy following three werewolf brothers (all named after chess pieces!).

Bishop is the eldest brother and his love interest is seemingly just out of reach as she's in the same position as himself as next Alpha in line to lead her pack. A series of unfortunate events along with a continuation of the story arc from book one lead us through this non-stop action page turner, delivering a fantastic romance along t

Gray Bishop is the second book in the Cornerstone Run Trilogy, and while I had some problems with the romance in Black Rook, the world-building and premise of this series had me looking forward to the next two releases. Bishop and Jillian, our main characters, feature prominently in the first book and I was very much looking forward to see how their romance developed.

First let me say I adore the underlying premise of this series

It’s been a few weeks since the death of Fiona and things have been quiet around Cornerstone. That is until the run finds a location filled with decimated half-breeds, as well as, full-blooded and half-breed loups coming to their town for sanctuary. Add to that, Jillian’s hometown gets attacked causing more and more deaths.

Gray Bishop continues Kelly Meade's Cornerstone Run trilogy, this time with Bishop at the helm! I seriously love this trilogy so far! The characters are just so awesome! It's hard to say why I love them so much, but really, what it comes down to is great writing! Kelly weaves an incredible story and I loved every moment of it!

I hadn’t realised this was the second book in a trilogy. I found myself thinking it seemed as if a prior level of knowledge about the characters was assumed and then on checking found I'd missed book error. I’m human, it happens. I’d seen the description and it sounded good so I didn’t check further. Anyway I went back and read the amazon sample of book one and synopsis, and a few reviews to get a
Gray Bishop is the second book in Kelly Meade’s Cornerstone Trilogy. An action packed dark urban fantasy that revolves around a family of loup garous-the McQueens. If you haven’t read book one, I highly recommend you do so as the ongoing arc is extremely important to the storyline and characters bleed over with little to no re cap. Each book focuses on one brother.

So, I did it again, I didn't read book one before I read book two, but it doesn't matter. This trilogy is magnificent. I knew this author could write brilliantly, by her other pen name, but she wrote werewolves, so now she has a full fledged fan who will always pick her up her books!! And now, I have to try to talk about something that I don't want to spoil, so bare with me :)

I rather like the continuity of the story. Where the first left off, the second began. This does pose 1 complication however - that you have to read the books in sequence or you may get lost. I also like the fact that, although there is a happy ending, it is tinged with darkness...thus setting the scene for the next book.
