About the TALONS…

I’ve been asked by a few people, including Sybil in a recent comment, whether or not the TALONS books are connected.

The five stories are connected by the theme — shapeshifting birds of prey. But they aren’t connected to one another as far as the stories/characters/worlds. They’re not a series in the Book 1, Book 2 sense of the word.

And speaking of TALONS, don’t miss TALONS: King of Prey by the fabulous Ms. Mandy M. Roth, which should be available come midnight! (EDIT: or as soon as MBaM comes back online)

In a place where realms combine and portals open passages to the unknown, a prophecy speaks of fertility being restored to his people through the taking of King Kabril’s mate.

The prophecy neglects to mention she lacks something vital to his kind—wings. Kabril, King of the Buteos Regalis has no interest in taking a human mate. His kind believes humans are dirty, vile creatures who rely on machines to lift them into the air. The last place he wants to go in search of his mate is Earth, but he’s left no choice.

Never did he expect to find love on a planet with one moon, people who lack wings and a stubborn vixen who makes his heart soar. When he does, he fears the truth about who and what he truly is will steal it away. Little does he know his enemies fully intend on doing the taking.

    I always think I am in trouble when my name jumps out at me from a blog post. I am not sure where my guilt complex comes from.
