Blurb

Lach has spent the last few thousand years counting only on himself. What he needed, he took. What he wanted, he won with charm. All except a god he turned his back on an age ago, when he had a different name and didn’t know what he was giving up.

Thanatos, god of merciful death, is one of the gentlest gods in the pantheon—easing the transition between life and death for billions of mortals. But he has faced eternity alone. After breaking his heart on the sharp words of a fisherman’s son, he hasn’t been able to connect with anyone.

Now, Lach is crashing back into Thanatos’s life, dragging him into an adventure that could save the world . . . or kill them both.

Patron Of Mercy is the third book in the series but it can be read as a standalone

About The Authors

Copy of LogoSam Burns wrote her first fantasy epic with her best friend when she was ten. Like almost any epic fiction written by a ten-year-old, it was awful. She likes to think she’s improved since then, if only because she has better handwriting now.

If she’s not writing, she’s almost certainly either reading or lost down a Wikipedia rabbit hole while pretending to research for a novel.

An elegant werewolf in Edinburgh… 

Lindsay Somerville, the most elegant werewolf in Paris, has no great wish to return to his home city of Edinburgh, but when he learns that the cruel Duncan MacCormaic is on the Continent and hunting for him, he reluctantly agrees to go into hiding.

Duncan, who held Lindsay in abject captivity for decades after savagely transforming him with his bite, has been trying to find Lindsay since the day he escaped his prison a century before. If Duncan can find him, he has the power to compel Lindsay to obey his every command, so the more distance Lindsay can put between them, the better.

… on a mission… 

While he’s in Edinburgh, Lindsay has been tasked with acquiring the “Naismith Papers”, the writings of a long-dead witchfinder. It should be a straightforward mission. All Lindsay has to do is charm an elderly book collector, Hector Cruikshank. But Cruikshank may not be all he seems—and there are others who want the papers.

… meets his match

As if that were not enough, while tracking down the Naismith Papers, Lindsay meets stubborn architect Drew Nicol. Although the attraction between them is intense, Nicol seems frustratingly determined to resist Lindsay’s advances. Somehow though, Lindsay can’t seem to accept Nicol’s rejection.

Is he just moonstruck, or is Nicol bonded to him in ways he doesn’t yet understand?

The Sidhe are fully explored in this excellent slow burn paranormal romance

44662243The Marked Prince by M.A. Grant

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Oh, that was good, even better than the exceptionally good series opener for me and absolutely jam-packed with everything I want in a fantasy novel.

It’s no secret to anyone who follows my reviews what a massive fan of this genre I am, and one of the overlooked gems for inspiration is Irish Mythology.

MA Grant has firmly established her world’s heritage in the legends of the Sidhe (Irish Fae) and this instalment focuses its gaze on the Summer Court of the Seelie.

I love the Fae, they’re my favourite paranormal inspiration and the Seelie/Unseelie in particular have such a wealth of stories that it’s a challenge to create something new but with a deep foundation in the mythology.

With this narrative we get a glorious and, at times, viciously cruel tale of the Unseelie High Prince Sláine and his captivity at the hands of the Summer Court’s High Princess.

There’s a huge plot twist which I absolutely loved and which fits so perfectly with the character of the villain inhabiting that role that I cheered even though he’s an absolute bastard because it so brilliantly exposes the trickster part of his history.

The romance, like book one, drives the narrative but in an incredibly subtle fashion, it’s what underpins everything without ever being the direct focus.

I loved Sebastian. He’s conflicted, hesitant and desperately naive but also so brave and compassionate and kind.

His friendship with the man he doesn’t know is Sláine trapped behind a Thrall and mask is slow burning but compelling and I loved how their dedication and devotion to each other grew throughout.

The book goes in directions I’d never have guessed and I loved that it surprised me from start to finish.

Another wonderful interpretation of Greek mythology from this pair

46751657._SY475_
Patron of Mercy
by Sam Burns & W.M. Fawkes

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

That was my favourite of three exceptionally good paranormal romances which shone a light onto the lesser known inhabitants of Greek Mythology’s Underworld.

I’ve always been a fan of Thanatos, (the actual God of the Dead, not the Marvel villain 😁 ) and I’ve never been a believer of the bad rap that Hesiod gave him …has a heart of iron, and his spirit within him is pitiless as bronze.

To me, he’s more the ever dutiful representation of the spirit which takes us to our eternal rest, or to the Elysian Fields if you’re a Greek Mythology fan, and not some hideous skeletal embodiment ready to scare us into our graves!

To pair him with the accidentally immortal Glaucus was a move of genius on the parts of Sam and Waverly because he’s a capricious character, one who has no single origin myth but a number of different mixed tales all of which involve him losing his mortal state when he inadvertently ate a magic herb.

Here, he’s a sort of piratical type, wandering the oceans and doing deeds for Gaia, the Earth Titaness, while wishing he’d not been so afraid of dying that he’d rejected his lover Thanatos after a number of years.

The slow rapprochement between the two is handled beautifully, as they’re forced back into each other’s orbit by the fall out of events in the previous two books. This does, however, work as a standalone but you’d be missing out on two cracking good paranormal romances.

With a secondary plot that wouldn’t have been out of place in an Indiana Jones film, the tensions ramp up towards an inevitable confrontation which had unexpected consequences and an ending which had me smiling so much my face hurt!

The Epilogue is wonderful, as this whole series has been, and I was very delighted to discover there will be more from this pairing.

Can they do right by ghosts past, present, and yet to come without ending up in the crosshairs of a killer for Christmas?

Psychic medium Simon Kincaide and his boyfriend, Myrtle Beach homicide Detective Vic D’Amato, find that the only thing more frightening than murder might be navigating their first holiday season as a couple.

A trip back to Pittsburgh to spend Thanksgiving with Vic’s large, exuberant family means dodging old frenemies and a bitter ex-boyfriend. A cold case comes back to haunt Vic when a murdered woman’s ghost begs Simon for justice. Then a new murder back in Myrtle Beach looks suspiciously familiar, and the dead man’s ghost isn’t playing nice.

When Simon gets a vision of the next victim before the crime occurs, he realizes that all the murders are supernaturally linked. Catching the murderer will take his psychic sleuthing skills along with Vic’s street smarts to avert a tragedy.

Jessie and Sean’s romance wraps with a trip to Faerie and it’s awesome

Salmon Cover
Salmon and the Hazel
by Sam Burns

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I can’t believe there’s only one book left now after this one wrapped up the romance between Jessie and Sean alongside a trip into Faerie.

Lots goes on in this one, there’s a bit more humour and a little less madness as Jessie and Sean go hunting for the tree of wisdom.

There’s clever use of mythology, including some of the lesser known (outside of Celtic mythology fans that is) Irish tales which mesh into the whole Summer/Winter Court of the Fae.

And, without spoiling anything, the best appearance and interaction with a unicorn I’ve ever read 🤣

So with the countdown to the epic conclusion at hand, I can’t wait to see how Fletcher and Conner will achieve their HEA at the same time as protecting Rowan Harbor from the big bad!
