So we are back in Grayslake surrounded by bears. Keen is the youngest of four brothers. Each of his other brothers had a place in the inner circle of the clan. Ty, the oldest, is the alpha. Van is the enforcer. Isaac is the healer. Keen has been functioning as the clan’s Keeper. He knows the laws inside and out, but he has never been officially given the title. He has always felt a little apart from his brothers. It has made him a little bit bitter.

Trista is a half-hyena. Her father was the old alpha, who has caused all kinds of mischief in the area. So much that a purge has been called (all hyenas must leave the area or be killed). Trista has been living a hard life. Her father wouldn’t let her mother take her out of the area, but she was also only allow in the different areas on a “visit” which limited her time in each area. She knew all the laws and fought hard to stay in them. If she overstayed in anyone else’s territory, her life would be forfeit.

Keen is quickly taken to Trista and doesn’t take kindly when his family doesn’t treat her well because of her father. They don’t ever talk to her and learn that her father treated her like crap too.

I love the characters that Celia Kyle writes. They aren’t perfect, but their flaws make them better. I can see people I know (myself included) having to deal with some of the many issues that Celia Kyle makes her characters go through. Life isn’t easy for her characters, but I think they are better people for their troubles. I also think we see a lot of lessons learned throughout this series. And, the books are really funny too. ๐Ÿ™‚

Kendall Taylor continues to do really well with this series. I really like all the voices that she does for each of the characters. She has no problems with the growing cast of male and female characters. I think her pacing and tone are really well done. I would recommend her.

Ex-dance teacher, former accountant and erstwhile collectible doll salesperson, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Celia Kyle now writes paranormal romances for readers who:

1) Like super hunky heroes (they generally get furry)

2) Dig beautiful women (who have a few more curves than the average lady)

3) Love laughing in (and out of) bed.

It goes without saying that thereโ€™s always a happily-ever-after for her characters, even if there are a few road bumps along the way. Today she lives in central Florida and writes full-time with the support of her loving husband and two finicky cats.

Iโ€™m Melanie and I live in Ohio. I have two horses and a dog. Iโ€™m an animal lover, avid book reader and audiobook listener. I like to live vicariously through fictional characters. I enjoy reading and listening to mostly fictional books in the paranormal genre, including Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance and Horror. My favorite paranormal creatures are shifters, doesnโ€™t matter the flavor.


    • Thanks. I really love this series. I read the series and then decided to revisit now that it is coming out on audio. I hope you get a chance to try.

  1. Both the author and narrator and ones I need to try. You have me curious about all the different characters and shifters. I could see myself enjoying these!

  2. I haven’t read this author or listened to this narrator before but this does sound like a series that I would enjoy. Thanks for the recommendation!

  3. Yep, still need to get to these. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I do like that point you make how she addresses serious things in her books, but there is also a feeling of fun, too.

    Sounds like a good narrator, too.

    • I didn’t even notice the tougher topics at first. It was one of those things I noticed when I started to think about it while writing the review. The narrator does a great job with this series.

  4. Both author and book are totally new to me, but I’m definitely intrigued! Glad you had such a great time with the narration, I’ll have to grab the first instalment ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. I know I really need to try this author! You are reminding me that I need to buy one of her books!

    • I hope you get a chance to try her. I really love this series. I need to start a new series with her.

  6. I just listened one audiobook but I enjoyed it so much. This one sounds SO good. I need to check out your blog for more audiobook recommendations.

    Awesome review.

    • Thanks! If you ever need help finding an audio, I’m more than happy to help. I can recommend narrators and series (depending on genre and most genres that I don’t listen to, I know someone who could make recommendations). You can check out my post on Top 5 Audiobooks for New Listeners or my Top 10 Stand Alone Audiobooks or my blogging partner, Sophia’s, Top Ten Narrators. That would give you some place to start. Let me know if you have any questions or need any recommendations.

  7. I like the sound of this series. And bears. I’m sort of going through a bear thing right now. I need to add this series to my TBR. Thanks Melanie!

    • It is easy to get into a “bear thing”. They are so much fun.

  8. I think I have a couple of her books on my kindle. I should read them. This sounds really good.

    • She’s had a few freebie books from time to time. I think I got book one of this series as a freebie years ago.

  9. This is the first I am hearing of this author, but I am sure I would enjoy this. I am big fan of the genre.

    • This is the only series I’ve tried by this author, though she has more I need to get to. This is my second time through this series (I read the entire series before starting on audio). I really enjoy it. I hope you will too.

  10. hmmm, I’ve always wondered about all the different shifters so I think it’s time I widened my shifter experience.
    Thanks Melanie

  11. More Bears! Woo hoo!
