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.

A permanent injury in the line of duty effectively ended Ian Ryker’s career as a Shadow Walker for the Council of Races. Being posted to a safe house in Washington, D.C. was one step short of forced retirement–until the day Marley Weiss, a local human woman, witnessed something she should never have seen. According to Mirus law, that glimpse of their world makes her life forfeit. Once, Ian might have followed orders to take her out. But not this time.

The books in this series are standalone and can be read in any order.

EXCERPT:

“This…won’t be pleasant. Shadow walking is a fairly rare ability. I can take you with me, but your body really isn’t meant to do what it’s about to do. It’s going to be rough on your system.”

Marley frowned. “Rough how?”

“I’m not sure exactly. I’ve never taken a human—part or otherwise—into shadow before.”

She didn’t ask if it was safe. They had no choice. “Let’s do it.”

Ian stepped into her, wrapping strong arms around her. “Whatever happens, don’t let go.”

Marley nodded, linking her arms around his waist.

Then the bottom fell out of her world.

She was blind, lost in darkness and a screaming silence as her brain and stomach pitched with vertigo. She was a human pinball ricocheting off forces unseen, first one way, then another. She pressed her face into Ian’s chest and clung to him, her only anchor in the chaos. He hadn’t lied about the cold. The chill soaked into her bones, and ice crystals formed on her lashes. The fingers she had linked behind his back were going numb.

Whatever happens, don’t let go. His words echoed through her mind, and she struggled to tighten her grip as her feet whipped away from him, their bodies spun with some new centrifugal force. Ian’s arms slid up hers, gripping her shoulders. Marley’s fingers began to slip, the muscles too cramped with cold to tighten further. She tried to cry out, but her voice made no sound as one hand pulled free of the other. The cold rushed in, flooding the space between their bodies.

Marley was a rag doll at the mercy of unseen currents. Ian’s hand shot out, clamping around her wrist in a bruising grip. But the ice crystals had spread along her limbs, down her hands, and his fingers lost purchase.

Unable to scream or even breathe, she was lost to the tumbling darkness.

    I am from SE in  DC, and reading about this character freaking out over regular interactions only a mile and !/2 from where she lives is ridiculous. especially since she is supposed to have street smarts. The reason she is having a problem is because she is not obeying the laws of common courtesy. Specifically, speaking when you are spoken to. All she needs to do is give the minimum response, a small smile and look like she is in a hurry. She actually thinks not speaking is helping her, but it just marks her as a victim and enrages her supposed attackers. Classic behavior from repeat sexual abuse victims. I would imagine that she has carried on this behavior though out her time in this neighborhood and in DC and that is why she doesn't have the security of knowing any one in her neighborhood.  DC is a southern town and especially when dealing with African American people the rules of southern conduct apply, and just like in the south when you don't apply them people are seriously offended, actually even much more than in the south. This girl would have been much more believable if she had just come off the bus from the mid-west somewhere or was from a middle class or wealthy family where she had never even seen a project, dilapidated neighborhood or a black person before.

    Very entertaining.  If you like fantasy/romance this is a great read.  Very interesting characters and a little twist on the typical fantasy "types".  Looking forward to the next novel.  Most impressive copy editing--congratulations to this indie writer.  Not everyone is so careful.  If the series keeps going as well as it is, I will likely upgrade to 5 stars.  4 stars is, "I really liked it and would be happy to read it again."  5 stars is, "This book is going into my library to read over and over again."

    Hooray and huzzah for another action-packed, romantic installment in Kait Nolan's Mirus series! Ian and Marley are my favorite Mirus couple yet -- and that's saying something, as Nolan is superb at crafting dynamic, sexy couples you can't help but cheer for. Loved this book!
