Overview

Kait Nolan's Mirus series is set in a paranormal world unlike any you've visited before—inventive new mythology full of fast-paced action, dark dangers, sparkling magic, and sizzling, undeniable attraction.

Trouble. That’s what wolf-shifter Mick Guidry thinks when a beautiful woman appears in his New Orleans bar with a hurricane at her back. His first impression is confirmed when Sophie starts asking questions about his missing waitress, Liza. Mick will do anything to rescue a member of the pack he’s made for himself, including forming an unlikely alliance with a woman with a badge.

EXCERPT:

Something burst out of the wall to Sophie’s left, and her shoulder sank into rotting flesh. Arms came hard around her, a clumsy vice grip. Suppressing a gag at the putrid smell, Sophie slammed her head back against the zombie’s. Her vision went blurry, and she heard a satisfying crunch before the arms fell away. Shoving hard, she stumbled back.

A stream of zombies shambled out of this new breach in the wall, moving fast. So fast. These were the newly dead, flesh still clinging to bone, desperate with hunger. Mick lunged, his massive jaws closing around a neck and shaking hard until it cracked, then dropping it and lunging again. One after another, more peeled away, coming for her.

She drew her Sig Sauer and fired, knowing the special rounds weren’t coded for zombies. The one in the lead stumbled, and fell, so she kept firing, aiming for their heads. But it wasn’t enough. There were too many. Sophie screamed as they converged around her, clawing, pulling, biting. She collapsed under their weight.

Mick roared, and she could hear him fighting his way toward her.

“Stay back!” she shouted. “Mick, get back!”

Lightning exploded out of her. Flesh burned and bones splintered. Chunks of blackened zombie hit the walls with a squishy thud. Sophie scrambled to her feet, looking for Mick who crouched a dozen yards away, ears flattened. He huffed a noise that might have been approval before yipping a warning and tossing his head. She turned in the direction he’d indicated and shot out another volley of lightning. The approaching pair of zombies splattered.

The stench of burned flesh was so strong, she gagged as she tried to shout, “Move! Move!”

They scrambled around a corner and nearly skidded into the wall. In the strobing light of her lightning ball, Sophie could see the door to the vault at the far end of the tunnel.

And between them and it, a veritable army of the dead.

Panic beat a hard tattoo in her chest. Her head ached with the strain of holding back water. Mick pressed so close to her side, she could feel the vibration of his growl. From behind she could hear the grumbling, growling advance of more. Trapped on both sides.

No. No it wasn’t going to end like this.

“Do you trust me?” she asked.

    Good for fans of love at first sight

    First, a caveat: I read paranormal romance for the paranormal, not the romance. I find that entire "Love at first sight" and "I don't know you but I love you anyway" stuff silly. That is, however, a matter of personal taste and is something I try to ignore. This story has that "Love at first sight" stuff in it, so if you can't stand it, move along.

    Otherwise, "Devil's Eye" offers an enjoyable read with some lovely turns of phrase. I love how the hurricane tied into things. There were still a few sluggish descriptions, but that's standard when you have an entire world involved that nobody knows about. Worth buying, and I look forward to reading more by this author.

    I really like Nolan's short-stories, but they're a total teaser for her full-length books (unfortunately not out yet). It was fun reading about Mick and Sophia because we were introduced to them very briefly at the end of 'Blinsight', and we also get to learn a little more about Isla's story. Although it doesn't matter if you read this or that first, their both enjoyable short stories, and as I said Nolan's writing is great and I can't wait for the full-lengths!

    A fantastic read!

    This is the second novella in the Mirus series by Kait Nolan, and equally as great as the first. I have been looking forward to this story since the moment I finished the last. One of things I love most about this writer is her ability to fully flesh out and conclude a full story in the shorter length of a novella without making the reader feel rushed or that anything was left out. Her use of descriptive language is extraordinary, drawing you into the story and causing you to feel the emotions that the characters are feeling. There is a scene in this story, no spoilers (I promise!), involving zombies, darkness, and a demon and I could feel my heart quickening as I read it. I love that! Personally, my favorite supporting character was Olaf, a biker dwarf about whom I will say no more lest I spoil it! Definately pick this up to read! At $.99, it is worth so much more with it's paranormal theme, quirky characters and its unexpected humor!

    Great Story!

    This was a great story of adventure, romance, and peril. Kait Nolan always does a wonderful job writing action as well as developing characters in such a way that we feel as if we know them. This was an awesome novella, and even though it's just a taste of what's in store for Mick and Sophie, I feel like it can also be read as a stand alone story and still be entertaining with enough closure at the end. I thoroughly enjoyed this one!

    This was a great story! Can't wait for more Sophie & Mick!

    Although this was just a glimpse into the beginning of the relationship for Sophie & Mick I just loved this! I think of this story as more of a teaser to a greater story to come. The action was fast paced and kept me turning the pages to get to the end. I read this in just half a day. Would have been quicker because I didn't want to put it down but I had to do real work. :( So I had to read during my lunch break and after work. Kudos to Ms. Nolan for an excellent story!

    Cheap Thrills

    There's an exciting paranormal adventure packed into this short novella. It's a day in the lives of a wolf-shifter bar owner (yes, the one from Forsaken by Shadow!) and an enforcement agent of a secret paranormal governing body. But this day is more than serving drinks to the local witches and fae, or tracking down law-breakers for the Council of Races. Mick and Sophie find themselves in a race against an on-coming hurricane and the impossible ransom demand of kidnapper, searching the underbelly of New Orleans for a legendary artifact powerful enough to bring on an apocalypse.

    Nolan's writing glitters in her descriptions of fantastic events, dark places, and magical people in another fast-paced, exciting adventure tale. This is the second story in her Mirus series, but is a separate tale that can easily stand on its own. The Mirus world combines elements of traditional mythologies with new ideas to create something fresh and original that will delight fans of many different types of fantasy.
