[Reblogging Ceridwen] BookLikes Banned on Tumblr

Through the Tumblr I'm managing about the recent Goodreads policy change, Censored by Goodreads, I've discovered a glitch wherein any links to BookLikes are blocked. I put out a call on Tumblr, and a response told of how the user tried to alert the Tumblr overlords to this situation, and got swatted for her trouble. Links to BookLikes are absolutely vital, given that this is the main destination for the Goodreads diaspora, and there have been a variety of posts here that it's killing me I can't post. 

 

So, can we social media this situation? Can someone alert BookLikes that they are banned by Tumblr? Or can someone get me contact info for someone on BookLikes that I can talk to? 

 

And I'm http://ceridwen.booklikes.com/ just in case the reblogging thingy strips out point of origin of post. Reblog at will.

 

Keep circulating the tapes. 

 

Out.

In the past, if a review was predominantly about author behavior and not the book, we would remove it from the community book page. Due to some recent changes to our moderation policy, reviews of this nature will now be deleted entirely from the site.
 
We will also delete shelves that are focused on author behavior.  As such, the following shelves have been deleted:
 
will-never-read-bad-author-behavior (I only had 11 books on this list and took off all the books when I heard Goodreads was deleting shelves. Within 30 minutes of me taking all books off this list, I received this email)
 
Please refrain from posting content like this going forward.  If you continue to act in a way that is contrary to the spirit and intent of Goodreads, your account will come under review.
 
 
Most of these books I had shelved as P2P Fan fiction.
SPOILER ALERT!

Werewolf's Way

Werewolf's Way - Scarlet Hyacinth

 

**spoiler alert** "This is the first book I read, that make me think draechan shifters is cruel and evil. The draechens help the human against vampire and werewolves, but that does not mean that they can hunt and kill them if they have not hurt and kill any human. The draechens rule over 7 other races, they are Kings in the shifter world, can they not make a peace contract?!?. It feels like ww2 over again *Shudder*"

"Is marriage not a sacred thing and a something you do out of love?!? This marriage is more to grain power and money, Caelyn of the race "spite" are forced to a marriage with a draechen, but know who his real mate is. Caelyn's parents do not care about his feelings and he have no freedom :-( I really hate the draechans rules to never marriage with another race, but they misuse the power to get new abilities..."

"Damn that is really need a lot of work, if even vampires can not like sprites *sigh* and even if fae and sprites are in a High rank, then even a lot of them do not like draechens rules about marriage and caste. So many things they need to change and create a partnership for peace *sigh* But how to do that?!? They need to destroy the caste system and make sure everyone can marriage regardless the race"

"I want to see and feel how it is with a bonding of hearth, mind and soul *sigh* they are saying it is beautiful and intense. Their sex was HOT :-)"

"How in the world will the werewolves try change the things for the better, when they seem to be as narrow-minded and hateful as the draechens *head shake* now both MC have lost their family to the hate :-( who can they trust and how can they find a place to live without fear?!? The werewolves feel gay is wrong and a sin *grrr* this is so complicated *sigh* will they ever make peace between the caste and races?!?" 

"Karein damn I do not like you, but if you do not like the directive, then why do you not change that?!? *face palm* one Minute I hate him and one Minute he seem like a ok draechen *sigh* I really can not understand the thinking of the draechens *sigh* What plans are he thinking now?!? Good or evil?!? I want to give him a earful and hit him on the head *grrr*"

"WOW, just WOW :-D really good news so much love and happiness <3 these surprises are so good, if I think what will happen next, then I am wrong. But they are still in danger from the draechens and no help from any of their families *sigh* so much hate in every races and caste *sigh* *grumble*"

"I really hate Karein's parents, they decide who will live and who have to die, and they almost make Karein's as cold as them. Karein is the one that can change the directive, but I think his parents think they are gods *grrr* I hope someone have the power to kill his parents, I do not like that they have slaves and concubines, people with no possiblity to make a choice and no freedom"

This is a new review, maybe later when I am not *sad* I will write a new review, because somehow the first is gone/deleted. I have to think about what to write again and the feelings.

I am angry now on GR and really hate their censorship

Well it's only a few hours before the last journal, I now I have found out the have delete my reviews from Men of Honor series, Elven Conceptions series, Directive chronicles series, and the Crimson Outlaws series. I did not even get a warning about this, I did no do anything wrong with my review, I write about the books and series, I love these series and have use many hours to write the reviews I am a fan of the authors, so WHY delete them? 

 

Dammit I did not have a backup from some of the books and have the write a new review of the books, this censorship are destroying everything on GR and is one of the things that I want to be on BL now. They really hurt me with doing something wrong to me the user. 

 

Why stay where only their words is right and reviews need to go through a censorship before we can be sure it is not deleted, and can we even be sure they are deleting it anyway? 

 

I really hate the way GR are now, they delete reviews without warning and the persons that flagged others for like/love reading m/m books are going free without them doing anything? 

 

The users on GR are already angry and hurt by this, I am angry and hurt by this. 

 

 

 

 

SPOILER ALERT!

A Life Apart

A Life Apart - Roger Kean

 

**spoiler alert** A great story about two brothers, their struggle to overcome lies and war. Their development, strength, loss and always hoping to find each other again. This was an emotional story, with the hope of the brothers would find each other again and find out what the person said was a lie and deception that the person did not love any of them and only were out of power and money. 

This is the first book by Roger I have read and I am fan of him now and want to read all his other books :-) 

SPOILER ALERT!
Cabin for Two: An Anthology (Mischief Corner Anthologies) - Toni Griffin, Freddy MacKay, Mathilde Watson, Silvia Violet

 

**spoiler alert** Story #1
Poor Vincent can he be more unfortunate or what. His friend Mandy just want to help him going on a vacation, and then it happens all the machine errors all the time, so he can not fly to the place he needs to go on a vacation. It's funny how the can talk about vacation and then about Mandy's girly part, not what Vincent want to talk about.
Worst trip for vincent, not exactly a relaxing trip.

Finally,are Vincent with the cabin. He enjoys the view and how beautiful it is here, he feels like a kid on Christmas Eve and squeals like a girl. The cabin is beautiful inside and there are so many things, jacuzzi, pool table, hot tub. 
But what are a Bear doing on the balcony? more like a shifter.

Christian is the Bear shifter and he really hope his mate is a male. He do not do chicks. He can not remember what happened since he has ended up on the balcony, he is confused and has been excited since he smelled the person. 
Their second meeting, where he will help Vincent. He comes to scare him, so Vincent is close to dropping shopping bags and squeals of fright.

Or more like Vincent screamed of fright. when Vincent turned to see the man, he come face to chest. Christian is a tall guy. He has thick black hair, and blue eyes. Vincent was excited about how Christian looks like he is just the type he likes and have very erotic thoughts. 

Christian is a very happy bear and man, as he helps his mate and his mate looked at him, more been caught staring at him.

Christian is a Gentleman and so sweet, helpful to his mate. He says that Vincent is beautiful. 
Vincent can not think of anything to, only that he seem not to believe that someone think he of all people are beautiful and Christian say, YES Vincent is beautiful and that he should get in the warm water before he freeze to dead. They are naked in the water and It's really HOT.

It hurt everytime, when both need to understand the truth about shifters, vampire and other myths. Vincent react naturally as anyone who just told the shifters is not a myth but a reality and that he is mate to Christian a bear shifter, he's going to hurt Christian although it is not what he wants to do. The reality is turned upside down which Vincent must have time to think about and he is crying.

Someone from their tribe try to kill Christian and we now know that is why Christian end up on the balcony. But the idiot try to kill Christian a second time, but Christian mother and the alpha of the tribe know about it, and help her son. She gives Russell a telling off and hit him twice, one time he falls, super woman is she and her do you not want to be enemies with shifter bear. 

Russell a father is so cruel to his youngest son, and says he will not do something because he is gay. Micky is the only one that have the right to stay, because he never try to hurt anyone. Christian's mom is taking Micky under her wings and will help him and love him for the person he is. She know that her son have found his mate, Vincent just need time.

I want to say I need a cold bath right now, that was HOT. The ending is hot and damn it makes one excited. It ends the way I had hoped for and make this a really hot ending, I know I have say it twice lol

Story #2

Russell Heter have buy a new car, but he is to small for that, so damn salesman. The car would make him powerful and tall, but he has never been any of that. Oh, and he is a city boy so no he do not want to stay a few weeks in a cabin in Wyoming. Two idiotic decision, that he blame his lack of sleep on. He like older men.

Russell is unlucky, the car breaks down not long from the cabin fifty feets away and when he steps out of the car, his feet sank into the snow, the cold, white wetness coming up to his calves. Damn high snow and go fifty feets to the cabin is not easy and go with his bags, damn hard. He fall on the floor and squealed like a girl, and then he hear the sound of a shotgun, there a black male in the cabin?

Not a good way to meet for the first time, Xavier is recently divorced from his wife and Hollywood photographers and journalists are only out to gossip. Xavier threatens to shoot Russell if he does not give a good reason to be in the cabin and then Russell tells his story until now and are almost crying. Poor guy is so scared, he think that now he die.

Xavier has gotten a bad migraine and would like to make a good impression on Russell. They each get a call Russell talks with Keith, they have been in bed together. Xavier talking to Miguel and his mobile song has been changed to something Xavier does not like that Miguel has done. 

Poor Xavier, his father hate him and think that he can cure him. There are only evil in his father, he has only bad things to say about his son. Xavier have try to do what his father want, but in the end you can not hide what you are. Xavier tell about his his first crush, about his life and Russell is dumbfounded and do not know what to say. But Xavier trust Russell, otherwise he would not have told him.

Russell and Xavier both know they have found their soulmate, they just need to tell each other about their feelings. Poor Xavier, damn ex-wife of his is evil and are same narrow-minded as his father, they say nasty things and will only hurt so much so that he commits suicide. Disgusting people, his wife says evil things to Xavier children. Kenneth is upset and confused, he do not like his mother. 

They have a serious talk about their childhood, obnoxious people, dreams and what they want in the future. Russell follows Xavier pace and this means that in the end Xavier finally is free and are not afraid anymore. 

Their love for each other fight all obstacles and this love will they fight for. In the end, Xavier father and ex-wife will lose.

Story #3

Erik Broden is a geocacher, he love to get a challange and to find the prize. He likes to solve impossible riddles, be challenged to the utmost and he is not like the others cachers. But this time, it seem even he can not solve the riddle, damn coordinates must be wrong when he prize seems to be where the cabin is?!?

Erik is damn unlucky, in some way he is tripping over a tree root and is pouring down a mountain, that he stopped before his go over the cliff is if luck on his part. He has broken some ribs and sprained his shoulder, he hurt all over. Unfortunately, it begins to snow, too, and he gets an exertion to climbed up to the cabin, which unfortunately is locked. So now he will die of cold and his injuries. Poor guy :-(

Erik wakes up in the cabin, he can not remember anything about how he has come into the cabin. By coincidence, it is one of his colleague's cabin, Jonas's his name. He has buy the cabin for his 35 years birthday to himself. Jonas and Erik is both doctors, and have worked together on the ER. Jonas is one of the best triage doctors there was. Jonas know about Terry, not a good man and he misled Erik(marriage man).

I hate Terry who have misled Erik to believe that he was not married and that they would marry. Terry is unfaithful to his wife and has no conscience. He is unfortunately Erik's boss at the hospital and Erik each day to see that Terry is fawn all over by his wife, this is as hell to see when he had promised something else to Erik. Terry is a liar and very evil and bad person. I hate, hate and hate Terry.

All his former colleagues gives Erik blame for the affair, but it is Terry who is to blame. Now that Terry is his boss he finds any excuse to fire Erik and after Erik all the time. He want to get hid witness gone, the one who can tell the real truth. Disgusting people who judge one before they know the real truth. Only Jonas has always supported and never convicted Erik, a true friend.

Erik has not been so lucky with his lovers and feel that all the problems are piling up, that everyone is against him. Jonah is the only one who supports him and he has always had feelings for him. Now Erik is confused and does not know what to do, this hurts him a lot. Jonas have positiv words about Erik, hopefully he also have feeling for him, not only as a friend, but maybe as a lover.

Not gonna tell this time only that they have hot sex, there is misunderstandings and some very serious talk. I was happy, sad, confused and almost cry. There is some very intense feelings and situations.

Story #4

Gary and Hugh are talking together seriously, this would be quite ok, if they are not Driving in a terrain which can kill them. Gary has only signed up with the military to be with Hugh. Gary is a shifter and want to get out of his hometown, because it feel to small. Gary and Hugh are lovers, and miss each other, just lucky they did not kill themselves on the way to the cabin lol

Not lovers yet, Gary really want to wish they where lovers. Hugh want the cabin feels like home to Gary and they are working together. Gary feel that he are in hell, because he have very erotic thoughts about Hugh and what he wants to do with Hugh. 
Now are Gary talking about something that have happen in the military HOT :-)

HOT, HOT and HOT, damn now I need a cold bath :-) I never think a talk about something like that, would end like that, but a happy surprise :-)

Story #5

Dan and Parker are lovers, but they seem to misunderstand each other in so many ways, that it seem difficult to see if they will tell about their true feelings for each other. Parker almost need to die, before Dan know that he want to stay and their love is to strong, but in the good way. Why do they need to be in danger before they are true to themselves, but happy ending :-)

Story #6

Rhodi and Gel meet each other on a planet that will kill you in a few minutes and a plant that will kill you within a few hours, unless you survive and maybe will survive if you get an antidote, if there is a antidote? Not exactly the best circumstances to meet under and then Rhodi also have a broken ankle, ouch so many things that cause pain. Gel can only wait to see if Rhodi survive.

Gel think Rhodi is breathtaking even under his illness, Rhodi is a fighter so Gel have to hold him in an iron grip that he does not harm himself, Rhodi is usually a top and do not let others dominate him, but with Gel he will beg to be taken and dominated. This confuse him, but he does not doubt what he feels. 
He feels that he found the person that makes him whole.

Rhodi is indeed unfortunate, Gel should be on a routine check on the planet. Rhodi still need medical attention and then Gel take him, unfortunately, comes a guard unit past their cabin, and Gel do not reveal that Rhodi lay in the cabin. Rhodi want to see how Gel 
looks, but to hurt him instead. Gel researcher storms 
and Rhodi find some music they both like, Rhodi is a spy and hacker, but not a murder.

Finally Rhodi get to see how Gel looks, but Gel is majestic and beautiful. Funny how Rhodi say Gel is a idiot, because Gel have nothing to be ashamed of. How the hell can they have sex, when Rhodi only just now have survive the illness?!? But that was HOT sex, even if they need to be careful so Rhodi did not hurt.

Now Rhodi is a idiot, he leave Gel even if he know that he have the man that make him whole. You lie to youself about the danger in your job, the information hunt as a hacker. Rhodi need to be true to his feelings again, to really think of the weeks with Gel and that he did not need to hide who he is. You do not find peace in you favorite club and drinks. Gel need to be true to his feelings too.

Oh, Gel get a new assistent and finally Rhodi have found out that the one he want to live for is Gel. To never lie again, to live a life in peace, with no danger. Both have found their soulmate and want to live a life, where the are loved and have peace. Before I want to beat both in the head, if they did not understand how lucky they have been to found each other. Love and peace together.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

All the stories have the element that they find love in a cabin, most of the cabins are on places you never think that you will find your soulmate. But this not the love where you say now are they Lovers and so are all ok, No they need to fight for the love they find. The need to go through obstacles and find out their true feelings, to take the chance when it finally is there.

Many of the characters have been through their own hell and yet they struggle further and hope to move on, find love and hope. 

Most of the stories were in the customize length that I could put myself into the characters in the story, but one feels too short and is also why the book has received four stars. I loved reading about all the characters and their obstacles in life and not to give up hope. 

This book is about both shifters, sci-fi, military, spies, etc. You get six really amazing stories. 

I will recommend this book to others who love to read an Anthology, about m/m their find love different places on the world, in a cabin. Not a love that just are easy, but something you have to fight for.



New safe heaven and old friends

I am happy to see so many friends from GR that are here, *sad* because we need to find a new place that hopefully never will have that kind of censur that GR have, it seem more and more that amazon destroy what once where a place for every book lovers to talk about books, write reviews. Now they make censur on everything and that destroy what I and everyone also loved at the time we were on GR.

 

I am happy that BL have so good export of ones books and that you do not need manual to get all the books on the right shelves and find the words that explain every book.

 

I have not said so much on GR, because I was afraid they would delete my reviews etc. 

Do they not have the understanding for when we write reviews that it takes time to write the reviews, with or without pictures to explain our feelings and thinking of the books?

 

I can understand if the review is not about the book and the persons have not read the books, but only want to flagged the books because they mean it is a sin (ex. m/m) etc. But the other things are not fair, we have taking days and hours to write a review and find the right pictures for the reviews etc.

 

I wish and hope that BL never be like that, then it will destroy what it stand for and what book lovers like/love with this site.

 

I really need to find out much more about what BL can, and maybe I will begin to write reviews again. 

 

 

 

KDP 'acceptable' content standard Karma♥Bites ~Bookin’ Freely posted this update on the M/M Romance Group. Is this a sign of things to come?

Reblogged from Loederkoningin:

Mods, my apologies for creating a new thread but thought that the significance of this alert/topic and likelihood of extended discussion warranted its own thread. I only have bare facts and the below is C&P of my post in my group.


ATTN: Erotica authors!! Please note that once again, Amazon KDP is ‘revising’ its content policies.


I'm sure that y'all probably already know this, with the different author resources and fora for info and discussion. But just in case, below is a link to a Sept 27th post on KBoards thread. I haven't read thru it to see how factual/valid the info is or who are most likely to be affected, but it's start for those who haven't heard anything.

Warning: KDP banning old and new erotica titles en masse from self-publishers


It seems that GR's confusing position re: its revised review/shelving policies is being mirrored by Amazon re: its revised content guidelines. To wit:

"Offensive Content

What we deem offensive is probably about what you would expect."


FYI, Amazon's KDP Content Guidelines

Beyond Complicated - Mercy Celeste Will take some days before I can write a review, my emotions are in chaos now.
Catch a Ghost  - S.E. Jakes Will write a review some time, need to get a grip on thought and emotion to write a proper review, please give me one or two days.
Emperor's Consort - Scarlet Hyacinth This book is about the MCs:

Hareem Tersain a ice draechen, King to the draechens and mate to Taryn Lovington

Taryn Lovington a werewolf, with some magical blood and true mate to Hareem Tersain

The Directive rules, say that shifters from the lower caste can never be a consort only a concubine.
This rule almost destroyed the true bond between them, not only that vampires and werewolves seem on the same time to want revenge and war against the family Tersain.

Hareem think that he need to follow the rules and find a woman to show that he is a real king, so many times he hurt Taryn, because he can not take the last step to be who he want to be and follow his dreams. These dreams will never hurt his people in anyway, these dreams does not kill Innocent people. Hareem need to know that was he change will help and heal every shifter, because they will not be higher or lower than others, but all will now be equal. This will give the freedom to the true mates, that already have found each other and hide, because it is forbidden to have children from lower or higher caste.

Taryn is lovely and kind, he has so much love and is in many ways Innocent, but also strong when he need to be, he is patient even if this hurt him. He know that Hareem need to find out he is King now and that it is not the high lords that decide what rules he should follow, that he need to try every choice and if this does not work, then they can be together again. The thing Taryn know is that Hareem really love only him and their unborn child, that Hareem only want to protect him and never want to hurt him.

Hareem's errors almost cost Taryn's life and that of their unborn, we see that the sacrifice Taryn make and the sacrifice Hareem do, that will change what way he see about himself and the dreams he have. They only almost need to die before the change and choices will be a reality, for the better.

The enemy use others as tools and only with help from different races, they all can fight the real enemy. Damn I really hope they have won against him or are this enemy taking another unborn child or human with the hate and evil in their soul. This enemy almost killed the MCs that I love, the family, friends and their unborn children.

Some of the tools, really are power hungry and want more power, the evil bitch that want to marriage Hareem. That bitch does not care that she kill Innocent people, I really can not have pity to such a person, she got what she deserved *grrr* and the stepmother to Sari she need to get exiled the rest of her llife, her hate almost cost both Sari's real mother and father their life, I do not think it was the evil enemy that have the control of her this time, she want the power and be Queen.

Most people in this series do I love and hope for them the happiness, family, friends and peace they deserve. But for the others they are to evil and hateful, they do not care about Innocent people and kill them if they have the chance to, Them I wish they go to jail/exiled the rest of their life, the royal family Tersain only kill if there is no other choice, to protect themselves and their people, they are kind and lovely, they know the Directive rules will destroy them all if there are no change to this. They want peace and allies, because they know in the future that they will need all the help, there will always be a enemy more evil and stronger, together they will be stronger, not alone.

This Series I LOVE, MORE PLEASE <3 <3 <3

Complicated and a much bigger picture than what we know about, maybe they win the fight with the enemy this time, but what about this enemy are waiting to get strong again and use this evil to make a horror, that every shifter need to fight to survive. This enemy are like the demons/devils we see in horror movies and never feel sure when they will attack again. Will this enemy find allies so he is stronger next time he fight the shifters?

Damn so many things in this picture that I do not know about yet and in some way scared about to read

Naga's Concubine - Scarlet Hyacinth This book is about the second caste shifters: Chimeras (halves, bad word/language)

Because these shifters always was half human, half shifter:

Naga
Mermen
Satyrs
Sirens
Harpies
Centaurs
Medusas

The mer hid deep witin the oceans, where no one would ever find them to point fingers. The centaurs, satyrs, harpies ans sirens found deserted islands, guarding their privacy zealously. The medusas became the guardians of the minotaurs, making sure that their friends didn't accidentally reveal the existence of the paranormal world to the humans.
The naga people formed the beautiful underground City of Patala. Here they dwelled, creating a true kingdom with connection that spanned all throughout the chimera community. They also make a strong army, because one day they know they need to kill the draechen and make war with them, because the draechen have misuse their power and would destroy all shifter world.

This story is about the MCs:

Lieutenant Sagenamadeen/Sage Zager a ice draechen and true mate to Prince Camden Isaiat.

Prince Camden Isaiat a naga of the Royal family and true mate to lieutenant Sage Zager.

Rachen Tersain twin brother to Karein Tersain, we hear more about him in this book (last book he was reincarnated, given the chance for family and true mate).

Judge Murdock is reality the Prince Jud'Enealh a elf (they did not help in war, but now he seem that he has no choice to fight in the war, for change in the Directive rules or be a enemy of draechen)

Alwyn Cyraltin a Krite and Rachen's true mate (a mystery and who is he really?)

Iasan Sutharlainn a sprite and brother to Caelyn Sutharlainn (prisoner, because he almost hurt Sari and their unborn child) but will be the help in the future, who is Iasan's true mate?

Benandanti some say it's a cult, some talk about shifters but in small form (small animals) they maybe seem like a enemy at first, but somehow that change so they help the new King and his true mate, family and friends. But I really do not know anymore about them, more information, please.

Those meet each other when someone want to hurt the Royal family of Tersain, the new generation to take over the throne and their true Mates.

This not only about to save each own people, but also who is really the enemy, the ones that seem to be the enemy are only a tool for something more evil and powerful.

"Mate bonds rarely follow the rules we set for ourselves. Our ways work for us, but there are always exceptions" these words say Camden.

It's really true why should the rules shifters make really be the right ones, Camden is not the only one that have found a true mate that the Directive rules go against, the new generation want the rules to change so they never fear to lose their mate and to have their own family.

This the fight Camden and Sage is fighting, we see that the naga family are as old-fashioned and narrow-minded as the old Royal draechen family was, before the new generation was taking over.

They make rules that not only hurt their son, but also his mate. This is about how strong true mate bonds are and the strength and power it give true mates, they know how the other feel, their pain, sorrow, happiness and memory. They know when their mate are in danger and will kill everyone who try to hurt their mate.

There is still so much hate, hate that the younger generation have nothing to do with and some that try to be forgive what he has done, most times we see that this is not the whole picture. Sometimes the enemy is not the enemy and the only way to change is to move forward, even if this hurt. Everyone know the old Directive rules are wrong and this need to change or get destroyed, the enemy are those who still want the old regime and the power. This is not the only enemy, even outside the shifters there can be a enemy as strong that every shifter need to be allies to win against this enemy.

This complicated and we have not seen the whole picture, we need to see the births of every true mates in this series.

I LOVE this series, the complicated world, shifters, true bonds, who their enemy really is and the change of the Directive rules. MORE PLEASE <3 <3 <3



Draechen's Mate [Chronicles of the Shifter Directive 2] (Siren Publishing Epic, ManLove) - Scarlet Hyacinth Because of the war between humans, fae, draechens and all shifters. Then when they finally won the war from werewolves and vampires, both rare shifters like Gryphons, hydras etc. also magical creatures like elves, fae, sprites, djinn are coming forward to make sure they have a say in the peace allies contact, to late all of these people found out they gave the draechen to much power. Many think it's better that way, but over the generations many of the new generations from the different caste thinks this is a regime the draechens have made over the other caste and that the rules are wrong.

Our MC in this story are:

Karein Tersain a Black dragon , the only black dragon and have the ability to drain the energy of a foe with a simple spell and also give energy to his mate or friends if they need that, he is also only a tool for his parents to hunt the shifters and magical creatures that want to fight for their freedom and against the Directive rules. True mate to Sari.

Sareltae/Sari Norrenddare the youngest Prince in the fae kingdom with the strongst healing ability, he also have White-blond hair the only fae in the kingdom to have that. True mate to Karein.

Caelyn Sutharlainn the sprite that was chose to mate Karein first, not true mate. He have the ability to make illusions and telekinese. His true mate is Graham Powers a Wolf shifter.

Graham Powers a Wolf alpha shifter that want to fight the draechen kingdom and fight for freedom. True mate to Caelyn.

Prince Hareem Tersain older brother to Karein, a draechen shifter and his ability are to fire ice. His true mate is Taryn Lovington, that was kidnapped and prisoner in the dragon Palace, sexslave (NOT).

Taryn Lovington a Wolf shifter and have some magical blood so now he is pregnant with his true mate first egg, pup, child?!?

The past true Mates that make a great sacrifice, before the Directive rules was made:

Prince Talrasar Myrthylar fae and the only fae with fair white-blond hair and outlandish look. An Angel. He is the strongst fae healer. True mate to Prince Kaelezrin Tersain a draechen shifter.

Prince Kaelezrin Tersain is the only black draechen shifter, he can drain the energy of a foe with a simple spell and also give energy to a true mate, friends or family. True mate to Prince Talrasar Myrthylar.

Sagenamadeen/Sage Zager is a draechen shifter, lieutenant to Karein's army. True mate to Prince Camden Isaiat a nags.

Prince Camden Isaiat a naga shifter and true mate to lieutenant Sage Zager.

Karein have nightmares about his ancestor, their love and their dead. Karein never think that he will find a mate that really will love him for who he is and think he will die at the age 200 if he does not find a mate he will go crazy and die, because as strong his ability is, he need a mate to ancore him to reality or die.

Karein's parents only see him as a tool to more power and punish everyone that try to fight for freedom and change the Directive rules. They do everything to make the fae pay for the help of helping the sprite and werewolves flee.

Sari is chosen to marriage Karein and pay for what they have done, but the first meeting Sari and Karein found out they really are true mates. Karein have change since his last meeting with Caelyn and Graham, he does not like the Directive rules and hate his parents and think them evil and no love for all shifters and magical creatures.

There is some evil, cold and power hungry families in both Sari's family and Karein's family, people I really hate Sari's stepfamily and Karein's parents. But they all get their punishment at last, finally *high fives*

This is about to never give hope to find ones true mate, to go against the things that are wrong and to save the innocent people, their race and make allies with the ones that can save your all, find love and not get seen as a tool, but as a person with feeling, hope, dreams and fear.

Maybe not reincarnation for Karein and Sari, but they have the connection to them, because fysically they look like them and almost went through the same things like their ancestors.

Karein Tersain/Kaelezrin Tersain both black dragons, same power abilities and tool for their parents.

Sareltae/Sari Norrenddare /Talrasar Myrthylar both fae with fair white-blond hair, outlandish look and strongst healer powers.

Both recognition their true mates, fae and dragon. Both fight to save all the races and to not make a war that will kill Innocent people.

It seem we have not seen the most evil, strongst and brutal enemy yet. All these people really need to make a allience and peace with each other, change the rules fast and find out about this evil before it is to late.

I LOVE this Series and the people, the world, the magic and they way the people fight for the right things, to change the rules that now hurt All castes and races. I really want to know more about old and new characters, their fights, what their ancestor have fight for and hopefully can help Them with, when they again are against that evil.

It want to know more about the children from all the MCs and what abilies they have, read the birth. See that the Directive rules is destroyed or changes.

MORE PLEASE <3 <3 <3

Show new side of werewolves and not only the light ones.

New friends and new enemy

Luna werewolves characters:

Alphas:

Leader of the pack Roarke O'Neil
Jason friend to Roarke 
Josh Carpenter

Damian the quietest alpha in the pack (first mate Eric killed by hunters)
Maddox
Brian
Stephan 
Ross
Lucas
Eric (person with the same name as Damian's dead mate)

Alpha Bear shifter:

Ashkii Fisher (first mate Elija killed by hunters)

Omegas: 

Westley mate to Roarke, pregnant with their first pup
Matt mate to Jason
Taylor Cadman mate to Josh 

Bastion 
Warren McDonald friend to David, meet via the net
David Austen (abused mate to ex-mate Vince, broke their soul bond/survived) second male to get pregnant.
Charlie Terrel mate to Lucas

Every alpha should learn that every omega want to have a job, help and feel they are useful to the pack, this about even if you algots lost your mate, do never take his freedom from him, because then he want to run away or make choices that can get him danger *sigh* that was is happening to Warren and Darian.

Not only that one from the leader "normal" werewolves seem to broke a promise and call the humans hunters, that only want to hunt and kill werewolves and shifters of every race, because they meant shifters are a danger to humans, but are shifters really danger to humans?! in every race even the humans someone go rouge and kill innocent, born evil or someone make Them evil. Only ones own choices will decide what future we want to take, it is only ourself that can decide if we will go the dark way or the light way.

This remind me of the Jedi from Star Wars, they have the power to use it to help and protect people or be a Sith, that use it to misuse it to hurt people. Even if you are born light, then you still have the choice to went dark as Anakin Skywalker.

That same choice have both shapeshifters, humans etc. someone seem to only choice the dark way as the "normal" werewolves, we never really have evidence that has ever happened attacks on "normal" werewolves, only that they fear their powers. Why do they not make peace and make a allience, I am sure even a darker force/creature is out there stronger and more evil, that not care if that thing kill "normal" werewolves or Luna werewolves.

We can try to save the ones that are being hurt and make sure they grown up with a kind hearth, empathy and love. There are always someone that is our soul, our half that can heal us, protect us and at peace. That is love and family.

Can't wait to read the rest of the books in this serie and hopefully the author will write more books or make a new serie, with some of the other shifters, maybe mpreg too, I hope.

Great story and new challenges to our every hunted Luna pack, new friends and new enemies. Hopefully they can save more Luna werewolves and be bigger and stronger so no one anymore can hurt them.





What Big Teeth You Have - Marcy Jacks Luna werewolves characters:

Alphas:

Leader of the pack Roarke O'Neil
Jason friend to Roarke
Josh Carpenter

Damian the quietest alpha in the pack (first mate Eric killed by hunters)
Maddox
Brian
Stephan
Ross
Lucas

Alpha Bear shifter:

Ashkii Fisher (first mate Elija killed by hunters)

Omegas:

Westley mate to Roarke, pregnant with their first pup
Matt mate to Jason
Taylor Cadman mate to Josh

Bastion
Warren friend to David, meet via the net
David Austen (abused mate to ex-mate Vince, broke their soul bond/survived) second male to get pregnant

This book are about the MC Askhii the Bear shifter that have lost his first mate to hunters and really only want to die, but it's destiny that he meet David that have broken the soul Bond to his former mate, because of abused.

Vince then want to have revenge and kill David, because he think he have the right as alpha and former mate, Vince always give David the blame to everything and think that David should to apologize and beg for his life to come to the abuser.

Warren almost lost his life to protect his friend and David's unborn pup, cup or child?!? Huh?!? Would that child have the ability to shift both to Bear and Wolf?!? Or only one of them?!? How long is the male pregnancy?!?

Westley finally go into labor and birth the child by caesarean and without painkillers, one of the alphas shift to Luna form and then uses his claws and cut in the pregnant males belly.

 Warren know he is mate to Damian and they finally get to talk to each other, this only took 3-4 month?!?

Everyone in this pack have a dark past and fight to survive, every shifter in the world want to kill and hunt Luna werewolves, they use the omegas as sexslaves and use the omegas as breeder, the "normal" werewolves are the shifters that more interest to kill and annihilate the Luna race.

Most shifters in the world see the Luna werewolves as monsters, but then it really are the other shifters that are monsters when they kill Luna werewolves. to Hunt, kill and use them as sexslaves are really the monsters and the forget that Luna werewolves are also humans with feeling, dreams and hope. Luna werewolves only want to live in peace and to know they can live without fear to get kidnapped and killed, by others that hate and is envious over their ability to shift to half human/half wolf and are 10 times more dangerous as a Bear shifter and as strong as a Bear shifter.

In the reality they only use this ability to protect and defend themselves, Luna werewolves only want to live in peace with the other shifters and find love, have a family and a pack were they know they are protected.

I LOVE this serie, because this is a new way to see werewolves and the way they try to fight for love and family, a new pack. All the characters in this serie are kind, lovely and have a dark past that only mate and friends can heal.

PLEASE MORE <3 <3 <3

I want this book to be longer too.
