Finally a story with a puppy among the Fae and their SoulShares! For that alone, and because Setanta, the Fade-hound pup, was cute - I anted up the rating for this one. ;-)

Not only that, Blowing Smoke also a story of redemption that introduced a new pairing with reverse personalities; the human pair being the schmuck and the fae the nice one.

Bryce Newhouse had been the jerk we first met in Deep Plunge: Book 3 of the SoulShares Series. Turned out he'd been a jerk his whole thirty-one ye

Blown away

If someone had told me few weeks ago that I’d come to care for Bryce Newhouse from the SoulShare series, my reaction would be “Yeah, right...” So when I learnt who the fifth book would be about I was something like ”Erm...Uh! Okay, will give it a try only because it is form my favorite series.”

I should’ve learnt by now that Rory ni Coileain, except the immense talent to weave tales as prefect as Fae knotwork, always has a surprise or two hidden up her sleeve.

So, I have to admit that going into this I sort of wondered if this was just sort of an extention to the story, we'd had one of each element and what was this extra book about? But I'm happy to report this is not the case because past events have reason that are revealed in this book.

When Lasair, Master of the Fade-Hounds for the Demesne of Fire Royals, is exiled from the Fae Realm, he ends up in a strange place with a standoffish man who just might be his SoulShare. Unfortunately, the more Bryce pushes him away, the more he’s determined to stay. Bryce has lived the first 31 years of his life with no soul and now that Lasair’s showed up, he’s struggling with having a conscious and his feelings for Lasair. With Bryce’s resistance and Las

I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Also, this review originally appeared on Hot Stuff for Cool People.

'Blowing Smoke,' the fifth book in Rory ni Coileain's SoulShares series, focuses on Lasair, the fae master of the hounds, who is about to be banished from the fae realm to the human one. He winds up in the basement of Bryce, a man who's been cruel and rude and pretty much just all around terrible to everyone around him, for his whole life. But what Bryce and

I know I said that the last person that I expected to relate to in this series was Cuinn when I reviewed Firestorm. That was before I found out that Bryce was getting his own story. Granted, he gained a couple of 'brownie points' at the end of Firestorm, but after everything he had pulled up until that point, I never would have guessed he warranted even a trace amount of sympathy. I've said it before, yet it bares repeating. One of the many things that an author can impress me with is their abil ...more

This is the only book from the SoulShares series I read so far, that’s why I wasn’t able to assimilate the whole concept of this magic world, the relationship between the characters, and some references to the previous books. I enjoyed the story overall, even though I felt very lost most of the time, but I don’t think this particular fiction world and characters are what I want to read about, so I most probably will finish my journey with this book alone.

Since the main plot goes from book one a

Reviewed for Prism Book Alliance

The SoulShare series by Rory Ni Coileain is one that I will be reading time and again. I don't think I will be getting tired of it anytime soon. Good thing, since book 6 is estimated for release in December, and there are at least two more in the works after that.
