"Wow! I thought I would not be up to speed because I read the first book awhile ago...not true! This can be read as a stand alone as well as part of the series. Although I dare anyone to read this and not go right back out and get the first book.
I became invested in the main characters and was curious to see where their story might go. The use of legends, myths and " Gods and Goddesses " was a perfect blend. The "in between" world was rich with description and imagination. So much so I believed it was real. I enjoyed the popular paranormal species we have come to know through books and media. But the introduction of different paranorms gives a layer of "other worldliness" to the entire novel.
The characters are well thought out and are quite three dimensional. All with flaws and characteristics that it takes to keep the reader (me) engaged. The story has a few plots running at the same time and makes for an interesting read. The ending will blow you away. So much so that I can't wait for the the next book.
If you love the paranormal genre, with a bit of spicy romance and a delicious read you would be doing yourself a disservice not to read this book or the Zodiac Assasins series. It is well worth your time and definitely food for thought."
"Refreshingly free of the familiar."
"Dark, edgy, sexy and full of suspense, this is not only a great sequel to Lyon’s Roar and my favorite book of the series so far, but a fantastic read in its own right. With unrelenting action and visceral description that leaves you breathless, this book presents a flawed and wounded hero, a desperate escape, an unlikely alliance and a high-stakes rescue against the backdrop of a fractured world on the brink of being torn apart."
Reviews for "Lyon's Roar"
"I have to admit I'm only three quarters of the way through this book and I'm compelled to write a review. I don't do it often, or hand out five stars on a whim. Artemis Crow has created a rich and unique world with characters to match. Lyon is beautifully flawed and you can't help but fall in love with him. Persephone is a strong leading lady, just the right combination of tender and tough. There are so many others in the supporting cast I want to know more about, where they came from and why they are the way they are. All of the characters are well-developed and show growth over the course of the story. The paranormal genre in general is getting harder and harder to write in. So many concepts have been done to death. Creating a new spin on old themes, while not impossible, takes some careful thought and consideration, which Crow has done and done well. Keep on writing, girlfriend, you've got something good here!"
"Loved this book! Had been looking for a good book to settle in with and Artemis Crow definitely provided it. It is a fast paced Paranormal read that stands out from anything I have ever read. Artemis has created a totally different type of paranormal world that captures your imagination and holds you hostage to the last page! I highly recommend this book and can't wait for the next book of the series to be released!"
"This is definitely worth the read. It has everything, suspense, adventure, romance, tears, and some comedy....I really enjoyed it.. To be able to sit down and let your mind flow with the story is wonderful, and this book is very good at transporting you through it's world. I am looking forward to the next book."
"I loved this book. It's fast paced and action packed. The story sucks you in right at the start and you feel such a bond with the characters. I can not wait to read Book 2!!!"
"Great read! This was my maiden voyage into the world of paranormal and I loved it! Full of plot twists and great character development. Total excitement from beginning to end!"
