Overview

When Ari Lake, guardian to his brother the Keeper of the Union, and a Labrador Retriever in his ani-shift form, wakes from his less than favorable rescue from the Gothi, he soon learns that he is still, to a certain extent, being held captive. This time, however, it is by different captors and for solely different reasons—there is something that they wish for him to see. When his eyes are opened to the revelation of yet another enemy threat rising up to come against his brother, and a potential traitor is revealed under inadvertent conditions, heartbreak automatically ensues. Afterwards, in the shadow of a waning moon, carrying the knowledge that Asher is falling in love, all too quickly, with Elle Ison, Ari sets out to do the one thing he was born to do, and that is to protect his brother anyway he can, even when that means the possibility of sacrificing himself in order to keep Asher alive.
Asher Lake, a wolf in his ani-shift form and Keeper to the body of ani-shifts known as the Union, knows one thing; he wants Elle Ison to be more than just a sealed contract. After learning of potential dangers in the woods of Brokenridge, he sets out to find Elle and his brother Nixon, who have run off in search of answers that could end the Raven’s curse on Asher’s life—a cruse which states that if he falls in love he will die. When he finds Elle, it’s all he can do to convince her how he feels. But time and peace are items that the Lakes know little about. Soon after, not only does he suffer severe physical pain along with the heart wrenching agony of betrayal, he leads his brothers, the Circle, and the Blackbirds into battle against the Gothi. All the while hoping that Elle will accept the fact that he was chosen specifically because the Elder’s and Grant knew that he would always, gladly and wholeheartedly, sacrifice himself for the ones he loves.

    I will begin my review by stating that I am one of the autho





    I will begin my review by stating that I am one of the author's beta-reader's so I have 1)received the manuscript from the author free of charge for my services as a beta and 2)I have paid for a copy of this book (because my manuscript copy is marked up with my notes). Some of us who review have recently been accused of writing false reviews as favors to the author (for what I cannot figure out). The accuser not considering that a beta-reader and some reviewers receive copies of the manuscript prior to submission to the editor/publication. I feel honored that Shawn asked me to beta for her series, even though it is not my genre. She is a fellow Hoosier and so I agreed to read and review. I fell in love with her writing and the story. I have been so pleasantly surprised at the quality of her first publications. I am so excited for the release of the fourth volume of The Union series.



    That being said, now I can speak to you lovers of prose as a reader/reviewer. Sacrifice Of The Raven (The Union Series BK4)is an exciting, romantic and very humorous bringing together of the characters. You will get to know them more intimately, know the functioning of the Union and Lake family. The love Asher has been trying to avoid, in order to save his life and prevent the calling of the Raven's curse, becomes a prominent focus for him as he falls more in love with Elle. He is at a crossroads, he can live and not love or he can have a short-lived love with Elle. There are unexpected surprises, titillating romance (without explicit sex). She gives her leading men playful, sexy humor even in the tense and dangerous moments. You will be entertained by the antics of Ari (brown Labrador Retriever in ani-shift form) as he guards the Keeper and maintains his status as the 'rogue' of the ani-shift world, Asher (black wolf in ani-shift) and, of course, the twins Casin and Cade (rodents in ani-shift) who, because of their size, can get into all sorts of situations that often lead the family into danger. Enjoy.
