Publisher's Summary

The latest stand-alone novel in Dani Harper's Grim Series will delight old and new fans alike, transporting them to the ancient fae realm beneath the modern human world, where magic rules and menace abounds....

Heir to a noble fae house, Trahern is forced to watch helplessly as his twin brother is cruelly changed into a grim - a death dog - as punishment for falling in love with the wrong person. Trahern doesn't believe love exists, but he will do anything to keep his brother alive - even join the Wild Hunt and ride the night skies of the human world.

Lissy Santiago-Callahan believes in love but has no time for it. She's busy juggling her career as an academic and her home life as a single mom to a young son with Asperger's. Her hectic life in sleepy eastern Washington is made even more chaotic with the sudden arrival of a demanding fae and his unusual "dog".

Mortal and immortal have nothing in common, and the attraction between Lissy and Trahern surprises them both. But when their desire places Lissy and her child in the path of a deadly faery feud, will the connection last, or will their separate worlds prove too great a divide?

I think I found a series to binge!

Storm Crosses

For those of you how prefer the short and simple version of reviews here you go: I enjoyed this book. It has a good blend of realistic motherhood and Fae magic. They both play an equal and important part in the story. The characters have depth. The story is paced just right so that the story is well developed. It's a love story but it's not overdone. The story has a good mixture of humor, magic, love, sex, and action. It's mild enough that your mature teenager (16 -18) would enjoy it and but luckily for adults it doesn't have the adolescent speech or banter. It's a grown up book with grown up themes but nothing they won't see on CBS. Her writing style reminds me of Dannika Dark.

Now for my ranting and raving.... I'd like to thank Dani Harper for proving Adult Fantasy doesn't mean porn. This author wrote an adult fantasy novel about Fae that doesnt have sex on every page. Though I too enjoy occasional love scenes they need to have a purpose other than just filling the pages.

For some reason, the last 20 books I've read about Fae/Fairies were sex, sex, sex... and I'm not even gonna mention the LKH series.

But this other has brought us a LOVE story. About L.O.V.E. Can you believe it?

And on top of that... it's actually a GOOD story. The Fae prince falls for a human woman with a child. The prince comes with his own baggage including an evil fae queen mother.

My dislikes:

I didn't like that fact that, Lissy, is such a whiner when it comes to Trahern. There is a part where she freaks out because the horses aren't touching the ground. REALLY? If your boo is Fae who does magic, do you really need an explanation about a flying horse? C'mon man!

I didn't like that the climax was so short. When Tahren finally faces the evil queen there was an opportunity to expand there. More mind games and scheming before the big battle.

Overall, I enjoyed how Dani presents the story of mothering an autistic child. It's done really well. Many mother's struggle and fumble and showing these parents even if there is a bad day, it doesn't mean you have failed. It's just a bad day. Also some of the children struggle with expressing their feelings, it doesn't mean they are incapable of feeling them. Well done to an author that researched for her book. Now there will be those how say that some of it was over the top, so to those people I say IT'S A DAMN BOOK NOT A BIO. IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE DRAMATIC.

The narrator for this one is Justine Eyre. She voiced each character well. I especially enjoyed her narration of Taharyn (whether it was an authentic accent or not). People often complain on the Irish or Scottish accents, but to a southern girl like me, I thought she sounded good.

I think with would have been better with stronger heroine

Oh my the heroine of this storyline was just dumb... made stupid comment and behaved ignorantly.

One would think if you were surrounded by magical friends you would be slightly smarter about your decisions and comments.

This women was just too emotional without thought. A protective mother should be a lot quicker on the up take when it comes to keeping your child safe.

Think about the horror movie where the teen age girl decides she is scared when she hears sounds but instead of calling the police or leaving the house she run towards the noise to investigate ... yep this book in a nutshell

The end? Noooooo!

It’s over? Why is it over? I don’t want it to be over! Please, please, write another one, and soon! It’s obvious I loved it immensely. Audio version more than written one but just because it was done even better than I could imagine in my head. This is my favorite fae world so far and please keep the story going. I’d like it best if the next one would be Lord of the hunt’s story 🙃

Imaginative, interesting, sweet, and keeps you wanting to know and hear more! I like this series and the way characters intertwine to continue to offer understanding and love to create a bridge between the human world of today with the land of Faire from long ago.

Another excellent story

I have greatly enjoyed listening to the 4 books in the Grim series. Just enough sex to be enjoyable. Plenty of storyline and romance to fill out a good story. Strong female characters and interesting stories all intertwined with one another.

Awesome read and Awesome narration..



Wow! This could very well be my favorite of the Grim series. I absolutely loved Trahern and Lissy. He was a sorcerer and could have swatted her down like a fly but she didn’t care. She didn’t take any of his crap when it came to her son, ever. She just had to learn that her 9 year old son, who suffered from Asperger’s Syndrome, was even a better sorcerer than Trahern, and that was really saying something since Trahern was way, way, way old and was always learning. And Trahern had the patience of a saint while he was trying to teach Fox. The story and Fox were just amazing.

However, as great as everyone else was NO ONE was a wonderful as Ranyon, the little magical twig-like creature called an Ellyll. And Justine Eyre gave Ranyon the same funny voice in all 4 books. He was amazing. He had to stand on a chair to be as tall as anyone else, he was very little, with arms and legs like twigs from a tree and hair like leaves.

So, I’m going to assume the next book will be about Braith, Trahern’s twin brother. The brother that Eirianwen, their own mother, turned into a Grim (a very big dog) that ran with the Wild Hunt, from the Fairy Realm. Hopefully, it won’t take two years to write the next book.

There were a couple of explicit sex scenes but they were definitely NOT erotic. And the F-bomb was used 2 times.

As to the narrator: I’m really not a big fan of Justine Eyre but she does do a great job on these stories.

Amazing!

I really enjoyed this book! I love that the lead love interest was a Fae letting us learn more about them. The story had me gripped from start to finish, I only wish we'd seen a resolution for Braith as Lord Lurien had hinted to Trahern that he may find how to help Braith while teaching Fox. Can't wait for the next book!
