Book Description:

If you enjoy Psy-Changeling and Black Dagger Brotherhood, this new series is right up your alley!

Sexy shifters. Hot vampires. Intriguing immortals. Strong heroine. Sizzling romance. Page-turning plot full of emotion and excitement. Modern and fresh take on fated mates.


Do you dream of ridiculously hot men? Okay, maybe you do. (And yes, I’m well aware I should lay off the romance books before bed.) But do you actually ever meet those men you dream about in real life? I didn’t think so. That’s probably a good thing though because I have… And these men from my dreams have done nothing but pull the rug of reality out from under me… which was how I fell and ended up in a world that I thought only existed in romance books.

My name is Caly (AKA Callie) and I’m just an ordinary single woman living the LA dream… paycheck to paycheck. Except whose dream is it? I’m not really sure… but it’s not my dream. Especially because I have really weird dreams… like really weird. Then again, everyone has weird dreams, right?


I am an alpha wolf shifter and leader of Orion’s Order, a pack of… well, not wolves. We’re an unconventional pack of highly skilled specian hunters that do one thing: hunt the evil in our world. And we were hired by SILE (Species Investigative Law Enforcement) to hunt a bloodthirsty criminal who is infamously untraceable. That was until an irresistible female brought an unexpected twist to our hunt and set things in motion… a motion that has left my pack and our world forever changed.

Welcome to The Order and a secret world of magic and mystery, where a pack of unlikely friends find love and fight against an ancient evil force.

 My Review

This book is a challenge! While I was absorbed by the plot, I felt tired from time to time and the need to put it down, temporarily. A mix of supernatural creatures, each with a certain goal, and a human thrown into the eye of the action are the base for a great story.

Blake and Caly are great together. We have an insta-love here, but it’s quickly forgotten, with the amount of hotness between these two. Their connection is deep, is consuming and burning like the strongest of flames! I loved these two together and I love how each change next to the other. But it’s not only the romance that makes this book good, we have an engaging plot that will keep you tuning pages. I loved the world building as well and how the author brought these different species together.

There are some aspects I did not quite enjoy. I did not like all the POVs, as the characters sounded a bit the same. There is quite a lot of repetition and from time to time the actions drags. But I got used to the style and I did not mind that much. I was too preoccupied with our couple and the action.

According Goodreads, this book has 665 pages, but it definitely did not seem this long. The time spent reading it was enjoyable, which made me give it a 3.5 star rating, despite the negative aspects I was mentioning. So if you enjoy a good romance, with a lot of intimate moments, wolves and bad vampires, this is your book!

Until next time, happy reading!

About the Author:

M.C. Solaris’s life took an unexpected turn during the super blood moon eclipse on January 20, 2019. She woke up and began writing bios for her imaginary friends that she met that day. As soon as the pen hit the paper (or fingertips to the iPhone), she couldn’t stop. It was kind of like one of those fire hydrants, spewing copious amounts of water all over the place. The characters and their stories just flowed out of her. She is honored to be the scribe, getting to share her friends’ stories. You can read all about her gifted friends in the Orion’s Order series (Book 1 is Calypso’s Heart).

On a personal note, M.C. Solaris is actually the pseudonym of Marina Schroeder, women’s health enthusiast and lover of all things paranormal romance (PNR) and happily ever after (HEA). When she is not curled up on the sofa with her partner’s oversized hoodie, a PNR novel, peppermint tea, and one of her three cats, you will find her either at the ocean with her toes in the sand or in a forest hugging a tree. Well truthfully? There is one more place you might find her: trolling the aisles of Whole Foods for a satisfying combination of salty and sweet while hiding in her partner’s hoodie… like any proper PNR-writing introvert.
