Gargoyle shifter Lucan finds out the hard way that one should never cross a witch! When Lucan has what he believes to be a fling with a witch, she turns vengeful and locks not only him but his two brothers in to their stone forms and turns their memories cloudy. How will the brothers handle this curse? 

This is a prequel novella to the Underground Encounters series, which I know that you have have seen me rave about. These characters and the world has already been incredible well developed, so I loved that we got to see how the story of these brothers being under this curse began. We get to see the reason that they were paced under this curse and how they came to be in the state in which we find them in their individual stories. This, like the others, was incredibly well written and moves along at a great pace. It’s, of course, a quick read as it is a novella. If you’re a fan of these stories, or shifters in general, pick this up!

Mattias is one of the three gargoyle brothers that were cursed to stay in stone form and stand guard at Vamps, the underground night club where all of the supernatural beings hang out. His brothers have found their mates and settled down, but Mattias has other plans; to travel and see the world. That is until she walks in…

Rachel had an unfortunate run in with a werewolf, and now feels that she is cursed. She has come to Vamps to meet with the witch that brews her an elixir to control her monthly urges. While at the bar she meets Mattias and decides that she may as well inject some fun in to her lonely existence. It was only supposed to be a fling…

They both have secrets that they are hiding. Neither one is looking for a long term relationship. Will they put all of this aside to see where this goes? 

Welcome back to Vamps, everyone!! I’m so happy to be back in the Underground Encounters world! I love this series. These books are always a great escape, and this one was no exception. These two characters (two of my favorite supes- gargoyles and weres?! All I needed was a dragon!) were just as fleshed out and well rounded as the characters that came before them. I have come to expect this in Carlisle’s writing, and I was not disappointed. The world building was mostly complete by this point in the series, but it is still great. I love that we get to see and check in on some main characters from the previous books as secondary characters in this one, and see how their stories are progressing. One of my favorite couples from a previous book had a really fun update! This book gave me a little more of a slow burn feel than the previous books in the series, but it was just what these characters needed. Overall, this is another Carlisle PNR success! This book is part of a series, but can be read as a standalone. (I, personally, recommend them all!) 

This is out now! Go, read, enjoy!
