Pretty good, if ending a bit abrupt..

.. I _will_ say that I was glad to have the epilogue in the third story, AND the bonus story Solstice, BUT the stories _were_ a bit on the short side, and ended rather suddenly, in my opninion 🤔
They are companion stories, with each of them focusing different couplings, I know that, and I don't mind that at all, I'd still just really would have liked _more_, because the World seems really intriguing and so does the characters, when they can get their heads out

Ugh! I just had to stop reading. I got through the first part and couldn't go any further. There was no real character development and so I didn't connect. The writing seemed rushed. This is really 3 novellas tied together. And a lot of the plot (although there wasn't much development there either) was kinda far fetched. ...more

Ugh! DNF @ 77%. Thank god I only spent 99 cents on this. If I had bought the stories separately I would not have continued past the first one. What's wrong you ask? Let me count the ways. 1) Instalove in every story. 2) no real plot, just setup for wildly improbable sex scenes. 3) too high an ick factor for me. Setting your daughter up with men who have 'serviced' you. Being 'serviced' by other men if your mates aren't available to control your magic level. Using your combined sexual juices to s ...more

Title: Stonefire Trilogy
Series: Black Mountain Bears
Author: Ophelia Bell
Designation: Full-Length Standalone, NO Cliffhanger
Reading Platform: Kindle Edition
My Rating: FIVE Divine Entertaining Stars*****
I've been a diehard Ophelia Bell fan for several years and literally devour everything she writes. In my opinion, Bell writes the most erotic dragon-shifter romance I've ever read but last year, she spread her wings and gave her readers something new and a little different wi

I really wanted to like this book, but despite the interesting premise it didn't live up at all. The 'plot' existed only to set up the improbable sex scenes, scenes which were just tedious, men 'servicing' women out of their hormonal pain... Although some characters had potential upon first meeting them, there was no character development or if there was any it was negative. And the use of the word f@ck every other sentence, I wish I was over-exaggerating here, became rather irritating very quic ...more

CLAWED: Emma Stonetree is an anthropologist and is on a quest to prove her theory that some myths and magic were real. She was mostly interested in the ursa (bear shifters) and planned to prove just that. She was raised by her father and her uncle with her twin cousins, Jasper and Jade. They lived on a mountain and every spring they would make a trek up the mountain and back. Their dads would tell them tales about the ursa and even that they were found as babies in the crook of a tree. They thou ...more

Ophelia Bell's Stonetree trilogy was nothing like I expected. I'm used to her dragon worlds and to get my hands on her bear shifter world was such a different type of read, but no less of a thrill, that I find myself in a dilemma: team dragon or team bear?

If you love the world of Fantasy that Ophelia Bell has created for the Higher Races, then you don't want to miss this trilogy.

This series is set alongside the Sleeping and Rising Dragon's series and into the immortal Dragon series.

We see how the Ursa Queen, Emma, came to wear her crown. The books are set in the Ursa Sanctuary and their immediate surrounds in the human world.

They are jam packed with the usual hot and steamy that we have come to expect from this author, and the fabulous world bui

Hot read

I love reading a very different take on bear shifters and this trilogy didn't disappoint. The rules were different and the best part was that the strong, beautiful women were in complete charge in every story of the sexy and handsome males. Great job, Ophelia Bell. You are my new favorite author.

I had the immense pleasure of reading this series as each book was released. I loved it then and I love, Love, LOVE it now & still! Overall this is a BEARTACULAR series with one FURRIFIC twist in the bonus epilogue that I did NOT see coming! The creativity that Ophelia displays time and again in ANY and EVERY one of her books never fails to captive me from beginning to end, regardless of the heat level! This series is no different!

The first story in the Trilogy is "Clawed" - The story concerns fables and how in this case they were true. We have a young girl, Emma, looking for answers concerning her suspected background, her missing father and the tales he told as she was growing up. Were the tales in fact true. She, along with her twin cousins, Jasper and Jade, decides to go searching for answers but what she finds is much more than she expected Now, as she discovers who and what she is, she must make some hard decisions ...more

Complete three book series of the Black Mountain Bears. Amazing journey of Emma and her cousins, Jade & Jasper. At the conclusion, there is a short tidbit of sweetness titled Solstice that sets the stage for the next great series, Sleeping Dragons. In Solstice, there is a breathtaking ceremony followed by a shocking event. I was given a free copy in exchange for an honest review. Since each book is worth five stars, this trilogy is worth Fifteen Stars!

This set is the whole trilogy. If you like PNR and some very hot scenes you will love this set.

Emma knows that there are more beings than just humans. And with the help of her two cousins she is going to prove it. She grew up on stories of the Ursa, mystical creatures that live in another realm. And now she may have found them when she makes the trek into the snowy mountains. She follows a trail she has known all her life. At the end of the trail she is guided by two bears. She steps through a

Interesting world building.

Book 1 was interesting. I felt it was abrupt at the ending. Book 2 starts where book 1 ended but the focus was ok the first trio and followed the next trio. I did skim book 2. I lacked interest in it. Book 3 was a book I thought I would have no interest in because I felt the sister was really just there in the human world. She just followed the others. She had a personality and her own issues she was dealing with. I enjoyed this story. All 3 novellas have a larger conn

I read this trilogy when it was originally released as the Black Mountain Bears. Much like all of Ophelia's sexy fantasies this one did not disappoint. I was not a fantasy reader until one day I stumbled upon her Dragon series and since then I've been hooked, so when the Black Mountain Bear series released I devoured it in a couple of days. It has all the magic of believing in more than you can see, it has all the steam you'd expect from these fantasy beings coming together and all the satisfact ...more

You want to read this trilogy!

This story pulls you in like quicksand. Like I didn't feel the pull right away, but it definitely got me. There weren't any huge pivots, the changes just developed naturally. The characters were interesting and as the story grew, so did they. They got deeper, more intense, more relatable. The story arc was well defined and every scene built up to the next one. The romantic parts were hot, but no one just met and fell on each other. Their coming together meant someth

A must read!!! Loved this series. It's great that it's all in one book. Nailed, Bitten, and Clawed are all wonderfully written, exciting to read, full of action, suspense, and sexy, hot scenes. I couldn't put it down. Ophelia Bell never fails to write decedent and awesome stories. I can't wait to see what she comes up with next!

I was given this e-book by the publisher for the purpose of an honest review. My conclusions are my own. I was not compensated in any way.
