Currently available for free on Prolific Works


I’m already a huge fan of both these series, and I loved the two couples meeting for the first time, and seeing them through each other’s eyes. I also liked how this hooked into the last story of Witchbane, although you could read it as an introduction to both series.

I like the difference between Evan and Seth, and how Evan, despite his recent experiences hasn’t lost his excitement for life, or his ability to be the light in the darkness for Seth when he needs it. I love that Seth makes Vic look laid back too, and the message Simon has for Seth.

The plot is interesting, and I liked how they all used their unique talents to work together to solve the mystery and send the threat on its way, while watching each other’s backs.

If you haven’t read either of these series yet, this is a good way to give them a go as the story is currently free on Prolific Works. I’m already looking forward to the next stories in both series.

5 out of 5 stars.

About Anne Barwell

Anne Barwell lives in Wellington, New Zealand. She shares her home with a cat with “tortitude” who is convinced that the house is run to suit her; this is an ongoing “discussion,” and to date, it appears as though Kaylee may be winning. In 2008, Anne completed her conjoint BA in English Literature and Music/Bachelor of Teaching. She has worked as a music teacher, a primary school teacher, and now works in a library. She is a member of the Upper Hutt Science Fiction Club and plays violin for Hutt Valley Orchestra. She is an avid reader across a wide range of genres and a watcher of far too many TV series and movies, although it can be argued that there is no such thing as “too many.” These, of course, are best enjoyed with a decent cup of tea and further the continuing argument that the concept of “spare time” is really just a myth. She also hosts and reviews for other authors, and writes monthly blog posts for Love Bytes. She is the co-founder of the New Zealand Rainbow Romance writers, and a member of RWNZ. Anne’s books have received honorable mentions five times, reached the finals four times—one of which was for best gay book—and been a runner up in the Rainbow Awards. She has also been nominated twice in the Goodreads M/M Romance Reader’s Choice Awards—once for Best Fantasy and once for Best Historical. Anne can be found at
