Why I chose to read:
The book was provided to RGR for the purposes of review, but I had pre-ordered the book from the publisher, downloaded it, and read it before I started with Rainbow Gold Reviews. Why did I preorder? It was because of the blurb and the mystery it invoked. I love mysteries and it having a paranormal feel with shifters just added to it. I had to read this story.
Ronny Parker has always been aware that there was more to life outside of his Harlem apartment. When he goes to work one morning at Starbucks, he finds himself coming face to face with a reality that he was not prepared for. He finds himself the eyewitness to a fight between two shifters, a wolf and a lion, one of which bites Ronny and calls him “mate.” When Ronny wakes up the next morning he finds himself thrust into a world neither his family, nor his teachers ever taught him about and he does the only thing he can do. He starts to investigate.
Cole Tronk has been taught from an early age that he is never to mate a human, never reveal his true nature to a human and that he cannot be gay. But when he gets into a fight with his oldest friend outside of a Starbucks and finds himself smelling the most intoxicating scent ever, he throws all of those rules out of the window. Before long, Cole and his mate, Ronny are on the run from the governing body of the paranormals, humans who have now discovered that paranormals, magicks and supernaturals exist, and someone from Ronny’s past who is determined to kill them both.
Along the way, Cole and Ronny meet up with a group of paranormals, magicks, and supernaturals who are also gay, and who are researching the true history of the world and creation. What they find will not only change their lives, but the entire world and the future. Will Ronny and Cole’s mating survive all of these obstacles and when a millennias old lie comes back to bite them in the ass, will Ronny and Cole be able to deal with the consequences?
Ronny Parker is a human suddenly finding himself in world he knew nothing about. Cole Tronk is from that world and must never mate a human. The beginning of their story is his mating of Ronny as soon as they meet and the ending of their lives as they know it. Or is it? It is an intriguing underlying question that the author keeps you guessing throughout the story as Ronny and Cole explore their relationship while on the run from the paranormal world. He has a different spin on the creation of mankind and male pregnancy as a normal part of life. I can’t say anything more or I would give things away. 🙂 I highly recommend reading this book. I give it 10 out of 10 pots of gold because it is a classic waiting to happen.
