ABOUT THE BOOK: Release Date October 1, 2013
One night . . . one violent, supernatural battle . . . and five stories of the men whose lives will be changed by it.
Kane, Brethren Guardian and one of the few Natural Shape-Shifters left in existence, survives the bloody battle of Brahm Hill but loses two of his closest friends. For all of his good-natured sarcasm and eye-popping good looks, Kane finds himself unable to completely forget about that night, so he seeks comfort in the one thing he is truly good at . . . sex!
This shape-shifting bad boy believes in having a good time—a very good time, usually involving mingled heavy breathing with a sexy Dhampir in a tiny closet somewhere. But when Kane is sent into the freezing tundra of the Northwest Territories to investigate a troublesome supernatural being reported to be on the loose, he soon crosses paths with a woman who almost instantly drives him insane with desire . . . because she doesn’t seem to be falling for his charms.
It’s completely inexplicable.
Skye Matthews has a job to do, and she needs to be focused on that, not spending all her time rebuffing the advances of this way-too-cocky and handsome stranger. Yet, there is something irresistible about this self-involved playboy that she can’t seem to ignore. And when the ‘Unidentified’ Kane is sent to investigate takes an unnatural interest in Skye, protecting her becomes the Guardian’s top priority.
But . . . can he save Skye from a supernatural being no one has ever encountered before?
REVIEW: SOMEONE ELSE’S SKYE is the first storyline in the paranormal romance series ‘Men of Brahm Hill’ by Christine Wenrick and is a spin-off from her Charmed Trilogy. At the time of reading the novel, I was not aware that this particular series is a spin-off and although many of the names and scenarios are drawn from the Charmed Trilogy I did not feel disconnected from the storyline. The opening scene begins where the Charmed Trilogy left off-a devastating battle where friends and family are lost. The secondary players from the first series are now front and center in the Men of Brahm Hill.
The storyline focuses on Kane Matthews – a natural shifter – who has been sent to investigate a series of gruesome supernatural murders in Alberta Canada. The killings are unlike anything anyone in the community has ever seen-the killer leaves behind no scent, no trace and no DNA but the murders are horrific and graphic. And to complicate matters, witnesses reports a ‘whirlwind’ of epic proportions that appears to have some sort of connection to the killings.
Kane will first meet Skye under ‘mysterious’ circumstances and as the storyline progresses, Kane and the other men of the Brethren will discover that Skye is some how connected to the most recent happenings. But there is something about Skye that draws Kane into her circle; his heart and his soul recognizes Skye before his mind has had a chance to decipher the truth and reality of their situation.
The relationship between Kane and Skye starts as captive and captor but soon the pull between the couple is beyond their control. The sex scenes are sensual and hot; and in the end, the reality of their relationship can be traced back to the gods, mythology and history.
The secondary characters play a major role in the storyline. We are introduced to Kane’s family of fellow supernatural powers and each will have a story to tell. There will be heartbreaking revelations and confessions and with it comes the knowledge that not everything and everyone is who or what they appear to be.
Christine Wenrick continues to tell the tale of her supernatural shifters, vampires and Lycans. She pulls the reader into a story shrouded in the mystery of mythological creatures and the gods themselves. This is a story of repressed memories, sorrow and pain, hope and love. But it is also a story of mystery, suspense and action as the Men of Brahm Hill are on the hunt for a killer with no recognizable characteristic, motive or DNA.
