I had the pleasure of reading an Arc of The Lion Kings for an honest review. I absolutely loved this book. The lion shifters were a new concept for me and the author captured their magnificence and their dominance brilliantly throughout the story. Both Adam and Cage will thrill you all the way, making you wish it was you on the receiving end of their passion. I never expected the twist in the story, in fact I jumped to the wrong conclusion. What can I say, I sincerely hope Ms. Renee George will ...more

This is my first book I've read from Renee, so I wasn't sure what to expect. I LOVED IT! Thank goodness I've read it all in the complete set, I'm not sure I could have waited between each serial release date. I found the book sexy, passionate, exciting & full of action, what a pleasure to read. Renee's descriptions & details for her characters, including their pasts, left me feeling a part of the story.

6 months prior to the start of this book Madeline met Madame Devine the psychic at the

Wow, what a great read. I personally was mad because my minions kept interrupting me reading. {sigh} This story is set place in the sixties, with a traveling carnival called Panther is & Co. Carnival. Run by a range of feline shifters, but managed by a dreamy duo of Adam and Cage Michael's, both Lion shifters and co-alpha's. Madeline Granger, a wandering soul that is being drawn to this carnival and those dreamy Lion Kings. Maddie's plague in life is that she has the gift of site: within tra ...more

I received a copy of the Lion Kings Part 1 from the author the only thing I was asked was to give an honest review: This is what I found.

I was captivated from the beginning of the story and could not put it down. I really enjoyed the way the author began the story and kept my interest through out. The story has loss, love, extreme emotions, shifters, circus performers and a clairvoyant. I really loved all the twists and turns. It had steamy sex scenes to peak your interest. I can't wait to jump

I was given this ARC for an honest review. I love paranormal stories. This is a beautiful written story about a set of lion kings that lose the love of the woman that heals and calms them. Not their true mate. This story has it all the heartache, grieving, love, happiness, and second chance at love with their true mate. Can they over come the betrayal of someone close to them? This story is a must read. It is a MFM story .

I have read a few shifter books but this one was pleasantly different. I mean, come on, they were big cats!! The story was sweet and seductive and exciting and I never wanted it to end! I'm so glad I was introduced to Renee's work and will most definitely be reading more of her books in the future.

Oh my, what an excellent menage this book is. This is my first time to read Renee' George and I will say she has done a great job. You can feel the pull Madeline feels as you embark on her journey. And wow two hot alpha male shifters and talk about hot panty melting sex when they finally mate. This book is a must read, with a steam level of 5.

The Lion Kings follows this woman named Madeline Granger who is a sort of psychic where she sees the past. She has been having dreams about this two guys Adam and Cage and has been restless for about 6 months going from town to town.

When she gets to a small town in Kansas and near the carnival, this Restless feeling she's been having goes away. And it is then she realized that the men she's been having dreams about are real.

This had an interesting setting. I loved the circus in the 1920s. It was unique and intriguing. I also found the way she handled shifters to be interesting. Those things kept me reading. The pace and the plot fell a bit short, and toward the middle of the book, I lost interest. This was a DNF for me.

The Hs are lion shifters, grieving loss of their mate. The h has a condition, and during black outs she sees their lives during black outs. Interesting circus characters, they solve the mystery about who killed their mate. A good story,YA feel.

A very solid story and character development. There were a few glitches but not enough to pull itdown to a 3 star. It is perhaps a 3.75, an enjoyable, engaging read.

The relationship between Cage and Adam was confusing. When you added Madeline to the mix, the sex seemed over the top and odd.
Feb 19, 2015 rated it really liked it
A very different paranormal story, Renee George has done a masterful job of mixing elements of the paranormal world. She has blended the world of shifters with that of a psychic. Her use of flash-back dreams was beautifully done.

The story is about Madeline, a very different girl, tormented and teased by her home town. She thinks her psychic dreams are just that, dreams. But for the last 6 months she’s been having dreams about two men, very hot sweaty dreams. And wanderlust has hit her so off on

Recommended to Tamye by: Renee George
I read this book in serial format, one book at a time, and loved every single second. The first book hooked me with it’s intriguing story line. Come on, who doesn’t love a lion shifter…. and we've get two! Awesome hunks of lioness aside, the unique personalities of the three main characters blend and complement each other well. Their chemistry sizzles, and the story flows smoothly. I gave each of these books, together and separately – 5 coffee cups (better than stars). A first for me with a seri ...more

Enjoyable Erotic Paranormal Read!

Madeline Granger has always felt alone but lately the pull to roam and her dreams are making her feel like her taunting childhood nickname Mad Maddie. When she wakes in Kansas and stumbles into a traveling carnival she finally feels at home.

This was an enjoyable and entertaining read with lots of gratifying scenes to keep you panting. There are two sexy shifters to keep you captivated and an interesting world to escape to. I'm very glad that this was the full boo

An emotion packed paranormal romantic suspense

Such a good book. Madeline is human with psychic gifts. She never fit in, not until well after she left home. She is driven to roam until she is drawn to a traveling circus. There she finds unusual people and the lion kings. This book is filled with heartache and despair, loss and death, mystery and tragedy. It is also filled with hope and love. So many emotions. And a few surprises. I must admit I did not see that ending coming.

A wonderful start to the series with a multifaceted storyline and characters that brings you into the story with mystery,suspense,drama and steamy scenes that will keep you reading to see what happens next. Only wished it was a box set. I'm recommending that you check it out for yourself

Interesting concept

This is the first book I have read from this author. The concept of not the traditional den or area that is used as a stable environment. Ms. George utilizes a circus as the traveling home of acquired misfits of the shifter variety. But it actually seems to work. Adam and Cage, the Lion Kings finally find their, Queen.
Antoinette Nichols
Enjoyed very much

I would highly recommend this book and it's author. The story keeps you involved from the start. It draws you in as if you are part of the story not just a reader. Nice way to take a vacation from your daily norm.
Thank you Ms. George for writing an excellent book. I look forward to my next read of yours.

Definitely enjoyed this book, it kept me wanting more and I couldn't put it down! Love the twists and turns but especially love the dynamic between Cage and Adam. Adding Maddie in just perfects it! I would love to read more about Zaria when she is older!

Interesting take

Although it's set in a carnival, the story isn't bogged down with too many characters, which leaves it open to more stories. There isn't anything negative for me about this story. It was a quick read for me but kept my attention.
