Hale and Gemini

The third son of the Bear Clan, Hale thought he had his life figured out. He had a stunning bride, his iron faith in the Mother, and has spent the last five years training to be the future clan leader. But when his life comes crashing down around him, Hale knows he can’t stay home. 

Leaving behind everyone he’s ever known, Hale is alone with his thoughts as he crosses the Alderwood in search of his sister. Then Gemini—the clan flirt and known gossip—follows him, demanding his protection. She’s just as determined to leave her life behind. Hale doesn’t know what made her leave her sisters or suitor, but he has no choice but to continue with a helpless girl at his side. Neither ever expected just how dangerous the Alderwood could be. 

Oblivious of Hale’s departure, Parson and Raene travel to Terrana to ask political favors in exchange for their clan leader’s freedom, but lingering injuries threaten their arrival—and their lives. They’ll need the help of an unlikely ally if they hope to succeed. 

A new paranormal romance from RS McCoy, author of The Sparks Saga, The Luminary Chronicles, and The Extraction Files series. 

Book Three of The Alder Tales.

When the SPFBO challenge began, I picked Blossom and the Beast from the pile as a unique read I wanted to give a go and Rachel McCoy was so kind as to offer a copy of a book from her Alder Tales series for review!

I have yet to read Blossom and the Beast, or its sequel, but I have just finished the newest book to the series, Hale and Gemini.

Sadly, the first Alder Tales book, Blossom and the Beast, won't be advancing any further in the SPFBO competition, but that doesn't mean this series wasn't a worthy opponent!

The book was very well written and is a lovely, imaginative tale of beastly transformations, heartache, and holding firm to your beliefs and who you are. 

If you don't like cliffhangers, then maybe wait until the fourth and final book arrives to get started on this series because OMG, cliffhangers are evil.

I didn't feel I was missing any huge chunk of information by not having read the first two, but there sure is a hell of a lot missing now waiting for the next book!
