Ge-Mi #2
Publisher: NineStar Press
Pages: 83
Characters: Taylor/Nevada
POV: 3rd
Genre: Paranormal, Fantasy, Series.

Blurb:
Taylor Reyes was born to privilege, but despite that has always been considered an abomination. He was the child that should never have been born and has spent his life trying to prove his worth to the world to no avail. As a red wolf Ge-Mi, humans look at his furry ears before his accomplishments, and no matter how hard he continues to work Taylor knows that will never change. Still, he has a grandfather that loves him and a pack of his own to lead. The life he created for himself is not a bad one, until one day a pair of adorable cat ears derails everything.

The thought of finding a mate had never crossed Taylor’s mind, but suddenly he can’t stop thinking about Nevada. There’s no time for the distraction, though, as people are moving to unseat his grandfather from the city’s throne. The fight has just begun, but ending it might mean Taylor will lose Nevada forever.

Review

Although I haven’t read the first in this series—and now want to!—I still picked up the storyline etc without any problem.

The author has packed a lot of world building into a short story, and yet it doesn’t lag or detract from the storyline. I thought the world building was interesting, and I thought the reaction to those with animal DNA was realistic, and sadly expected. I liked the characters too, and thought Taylor and Nevada were a cute couple, and liked how they can both hold their own in a fight. Nevada’s cats, especially Hex, are total scene stealers. I liked Taylor’s wolf pack, and thought his grandfather was a force to be reckoned with.

I also liked the politics and how they factored into the story. Like Nevada, I found myself trying to work out who was behind the plot to unseat his grandfather, and loved the conclusion. I thought the red herrings were very clever, and I liked how the bad guy was finally revealed.

I found this a very satisfying read with likeable characters set within a rich world. I’d love to read more in this 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 https://annebarwell.wordpress.com
