Reread October 2019

You'd think I would remember everything about this after already reading it 3 times, but I still have ah ha moments.

Reread February 2019

This has got to be one of my favorite series ever.

Reread June 2018

Even though I know what’s going to happen, I’m still on pins and needles. I love this series so much.

Originally read October 2017

Oh boy...things are heating up. Mysteries are uncovered, people are dying, deceit abounds. Tristan is slowly coming into his own wit
This series is so good. This author has a way of pulling you into the story right away. So many twists and turns. Tristan and Ushna are amazing together.

Oops. I tripped and fell into a MPREG series. MPREG is not my gig and I do wish this had come with a tag but since it didn't I'm endeavoring to maintain some neutrality. I did enjoy this installment of the series mostly because these two remind me a WHOLE LOT of another couple of wingnuts near and dear to my heart-Gideon and Eva. These two are not as coocoo for each other as Gideon and Eva but it's hard to top those two. I also enjoyed the mythological aspects and the battling. A good sword figh ...more

Just a quick note to say that Songs of the Earth will tentatively re-release January 7, 2015.

Thank you for reading!!


Just a quick note to say Sumeria's Sons will be temporarily unavailable. The series has been picked up by Less Than Three Press (Yay!) and will be re-released through them. Thank you for your patience and your interest!

I’m not sure if I should be kicking myself that I never bothered to read this series before, or if I should be glad that I waited till these new editions came out for me to enjoy them.

Mostly, I’m just sad that I’ll have to wait, again, to see what happens to Tristan and Ushna. Damn evil cliffhangers. :(

This book picks up right where the last one left off. Tristan is having a little chat with a goddess on the side of a river (and there are griffins!), and everyone is pretty much just waiting for

This book is part of a series and must be read in order. Tristan is left reeling with questions after the confrontation with the Goddess Ki, discovering more secrets and lies from his brother and unable to trust any of the council. Now he has to focus on protecting his consort, Ushna, and his tribe and to learn who he can trust, he also has to learn what he can about just who is out to assassinate him and how t

As you will know if you've read my review of Twin Flames, the first book in this series, I couldn’t wait for this sequel to be published. And now that it has I am very happy to say I loved it just as much as the first book. While still firmly founding this world in Sumerian legends, Lexi Ander adds more of the Lycan lore and a few new elements, seamlessly weaving them into the story of Tristan and Ushna. Not only do these characters come even more alive, the twists and turns their story takes ar ...more

What can I say? If I could give more than 5 stars then I certainly would be giving them to Songs of the Earth. Book one Twin Flames was so good. Book 2, Songs of the Earth, surpasses that. This is a wonderful shifter book with terrific world building, a well paced plot, action, intrigue, engaging, endearing MC's, with well drawn secondary characters as well And the sex....I haven't recovered ye

I really enjoyed reading book 1, Twin Flames, and I loved reading this one. The story was a bit longer than the first book which was good as I did not want the story to end (which it hasn't, the series is going to be 6 books). I laughed, cried and was sitting on the edge of my couch while reading, some parts I re-read they were so good. The characters are very well rounded and it is very easy to love the good ones and hate the baddies. I highly recommend this author and series, my only complaint ...more
It's a good story with likable characters. There is a lot going on and a lot is left open. While that's okay, I do hope the author is not going to loose track of everything.

What took a lot away for me was the mpreg. I loathe it. If you want pregnant characters write M/F not M/M. That is just my opinion.

(Partly comment as I go)
As I ETA'd in my bk 1 review, I'm really unsure about the whole Theo business. I mean, he seemed genuinely contrite and it seems as if Tristan didn't give him a chance before dramatically deciding to break off.

So I was more than a little pissed when he explained Theo as such:
A little more than seven years ago, I had broken the bond between Theo Sullivan and myself. His lack of regard for me, coupled with his deception and lies, poisoned and almost killed me. The council h
3.4 Stars

Again, a huge info dump installment. Seems like half the book was taken up explaining everything (was probably closer to 1/3, but still). It does remain an interesting take on shifter mythology and I think I'm starting to recognize the Sumerian gods & goddesses - which saves me a lot of time by not having to repeatedly flip back to the index.

The sex is way hot, the action/drama unexpectedly engaging and I can't wait to see how the "line of succession" issue finally resolves. But the cha

Songs of the Earth is the sequel to Twin Flames and should be read in order.

Songs of the Earth picks up exactly where book one left off and the excitement never wanes. I could not put this book down and gobbled it up like a kid with an unattended cookie jar. There is nonstop action and intrigue. Secrets are revealed, there are betrayals of trust and threats to Tristan and Ushna, the man he loves

Still holds up - I've started the re-read since all of the books are now out

Great continuation

This is a great continuation from the previous book. Some questions were answered well.
I love this authors take on the shifter world.
Everyone has one twin flame (mate) who is reincarnated throughout time. I love the fact that both Tristan and Ushna have met their twin flames and both are now without them, Ushna to the death of his flame in childhood and Tristan from having his bond bro

I received this book as an ARC through the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

I'm enjoying this series. The mythology is fun, and I even liked the way MPreg worked in this story. It makes sense with the culture, and the characters (at least that's what I'm telling myself.) Sure, it can be a bit silly over the top, but in a fun way. It was a perfect read when I wasn't feeling great, and I didn't want anything to deep or too serious. I liked that it was about more than love, but about thei

WTF did I just read?

Okay, I usually have problems with jumping in in the middle of a series, or like now, the second book (by mistake). But I got a grip of the background story, and didn't feel like I missed something.

But some of the plot points made me go WTF?! and others made me want to throw my e-reader in the wall. This was a mess of a book.

Not my cup of tea.

This was just as good if not better than the first one. Just loved it!!!
4.5 Stars - another fast paced instalment of the series. So much is happening and so much information is given, it's hard to breathe. The end came much too soon!

However I loved the story, the characters and the rich detail. There are many players to keep track of and I appreciated the glossary at the end that outlines the major gods and goddesses mentioned.

Jo * Smut-Dickted *
Another great installment in the series. Great myths which are well explained but which do lend a very complicated structure. The balance is good and I really loved the rougher base sex between the guys. It really fit in well with what was happening and was in no way too much. Intricate and complex - which means it is a little bit of work to read to keep things straight. Cannot wait for the next one!
This was nice and interesting. I loved the first book WAY better though. This book did progress a little too fast some places but I liked it. The fast bits didn't take away from my enjoyment. I'm so excited about the birth! I can't wait to read the third book.

I enjoyed book one of this series and wondered if the author could continue the storyline without losing my interest. Not only did she do so, she made me an avid addict of Tristan and Ushna and I went on to read book 3 immediately so as to get my fix!

Oh my, what a follow up. I loved continuing the story from the admittedly cliff hanger ending of Twin Flames. Tristan and Ushna; their love was so palpable and wonderful to just wallow in. I can't wait for book 3 to be re-released. No really, can't wait, need a time machine.
I liked this one even better but it's not finished and I want the next one*sulks*
