4.5 stars
Predatory picks up pretty much immediately where Undertow ended, and while Donovan is the new POV character and thus opens up a whole new arc about his own magic and his relationship with Tyler, it's definitely not a standalone.

Content warnings include: sex on-page, BDSM (impact play, pain play, bodage), graphic injury (broken bones, bruising), mentions of: murder, drug abuse, death of a sibling, domestic violence (parent beating child.)

Wow. That was intense. I'm in love with this series. It's dark and riveting, and nothing like I would have imagined when I first picked up Darkling. Brooklyn Ray does a tremendous job of continuing the story of this circle of witches.

If you haven't read these and like a darker paranormal read with witches, do pick these up. (They're not *dark* dark, but they're not light, either.) This isn't standalone. You should read Darkling and Undertow first. And I do suggest reading Unbroken before this

I recieved this books as an ARC from NetGalley in exhange for my honest review.

I'd start to say that i haven't read the previous books, wich made me a little confused since it's lots of characters that has their own stories in the other books. That being said it's alright to be read as a standalone about Tyler and Donovan, and whilst i sometimes did not agree with their relationship and how Tyler treated Donovan, they grew and learned about each other and opened up through out the book. I think
I received an early copy of this from the author, and holy heck, this series just keeps getting better and better, y'all.

I have loved EVERY. SINGLE. BOOK. in this series. And I will love every. single. book. to come.
And I can sum up my review of this one in just three words : "Damn it, Tyler!"
That's pretty much all I have to say. That sums it up perfectly. That, and "Holy Sh*t, Donovan!"

This book picks up directly after the events of Book 2, Undertow. It literally picks up from the boys getting into the truck to go home, after the events with the Kelpie. Yet, before reading this, I re-read Books 1, 2, and 2.5, and

If the whole point of Kindles isn't for reading wild little novels about witches, weres, & fae with graphic violence and graphic sex while on vacation with your in-laws... then idk what the point of anything is anymore.

Geez Louise. I don't even know where to start. Damn, this has been one hell of a series and this book just sent it in the stratosphere. The relationship between Tyler and Donovan, the shifting, the trickery, the secrets, just everything. There is so much packed into this book and it just becomes surprise after surprise. Just when you think it's over and everything is somewhat settled, something else happens.
Without giving away too much, Donovan is a were. But can't shift. Yet. You have to read

I really enjoy the worldbuilding in these books, I like how the plot continues and builds through each one, and I like that all the characters are present or show up, regardless of who each book focuses on.

That said, this was my least favorite of the 4. The relationship between Donovan and Tyler was entirely too toxic for me to get invested or root for them to be together. I saw too much of my past abusive relationship in this one; my ex in Tyler and my refusal to leave even though he was

I really felt for Donovon here and just wanted to shake Tyler so many tiiiimes. But we got to understand Tyler a bit too. My heart was in my throat so many times cuz the author is so good at writing emotional scenes.

This one continues from book 2's events so i would suggest reading the first two books to know what'a going on.

We also get the whole gang here:Ryderrr, Liam, and Christy too. Their circle dy amics are fascinating as always because everything seems to be going wrong at once and

Um. Er-

The cover is pretty?

Up until this book I have enjoyed everything Brooklyn Ray has written, but this book deeply disturbed me. Donovan and Tyler's relationship is so toxic that I almost wasn't able to finish the book. I don't mind messy, complicated people, or people who are shitty and then redeem themselves (actually big hard on for redemption arcs), but Tyler is a fucking asshole. I get that he has a shitty home-life and that his dad hits him, but he is g r o w n. And furthermore the

Ninestar press was kind enough to send me Darkling and Undertow so that I could catch up before I read the most recent installment. I loved these two books.

Let me tell you, this series is well worth the time youll invest to read the entire thing. In Darkling, Ray introduces the reader to Ryder. Ryder has a lot of secrets, and his partner, Liam a water mage and storm wielder knows some of those secrets others will blindside him. Ryder comes from a family of Necromancers. Its a divisive history

The things about the Port Lewis Witches is that youre never going to have a bad time while reading them. When I get a new Brooklyn Ray story in my hands, I know Im going to enjoy myself. Im gonna get excellent atmosphere, dynamic characters, and a setting that lives and breathes.

But even knowing that, even being a fan of this series already, I still found myself surprised at how much I loved this installment.


Unlike the standalone novel Unbroken, Predatory is very directly tied to the

Predatory is the fourth installment in the Port Lewis Witches series. It follows Donovan Quinn as he and his circlemates deal with the consequences of Liams action. This novella is set right after the event of Undertow, so this review will contain some spoilers for the previous novellas. There will be no spoilers from Predatory, though!

Predatory is one of my most anticipated releases in June, and its not just because I was dying for more Tyler content,

*ARC provided by IndiGo Marketing&Design in exchange for an honest review

Predatory is the third installment of the Fort Lewis Witches. It can easily be read on its own although better appreciated after the first two,if only to understand the reasoning behind the choices the characters make in this book.

The members of the coven need to find a way to save Liam's life and the only solution seems to be bringing out Donovan's tiger. Not an easy feat, because he hasn't yet found a balance between

#netgalley. #Predatory

Trigger warning: mature readers. Rough Sex. SM roleplay, hot wax play and extreme sex.

I am absolutely fascinated by Donovan and Tyler's sexual relationship and their open exploration of fantasy, erotica and desire. The sex is exciting and hot, but also respectful and safe. This series keeps getting better and I find myself totally invested in Donovan and Tyler. Both so opposite, yet so

This is the third novella in an NA contemporary fantasy series. Each book follows a new member of a circle of witches and every single time I pick up one of these books I think it can't possibly be as good as the last one and yet. It is. They are. They always are. The writing is heavy with atmosphere and magic. Each character we follow feels unique. The emotions are so real and I love that we see so much of all the previous characters because they're all together. Each book builds on the overall ...more

There are some neat twists in the overall plot, but getting to understand Donovan was such a treat for me that I almost feel like the other stuff is a bonus I'll appreciate later. And finally understanding Ty better as well - inasmuch as secrets only lead to more questions - just makes me even more eager for the next installment. Donovan meeting Michael and Victor was a strong hint for me, but also a neat surprise. (Read 'Unbroken' for their story, my favorite demon romance so far.)

I could not finish this.

I am very sensitive to the BDSM and though Id read the reviews that mentioned it, it looked like it was more a side issue than it was.

Im sure its a lovely addition to the series, but I dont like BDSM dynamics so I did not finish this.

This is the first book in the series I read but having read it I definitely want to read the others. I really enjoyed the characters and the story itself. It was magical, suspenseful, romantic and fun to read. There wasnt a dull moment and I cant wait to learn more about each character. ...more
