About the Author

When not working on the Gardinian World Novels, Kelsey Jordan can be found playing MMOs, reading, or being generally ridiculous. She's indoorsy with an outdoorsy spirit (allergies, yo!), finds napping to be an acceptable hobby, and collects unholy amounts of paper, pens, and backpacks because who needs moderation?
Kelsey is a firm believer that you can never have too many laughs or good times. So eat that cake, drink the wine, and read good books.

Kyran is a lycan, the eldest son of the alpha and now the leader of his pack at his father’s death. He was chosen to lead by his father and the gods of his people because of his forward thinking.  For over eight thousand years there has been a war between shifters and hunters called the Forever War.  Kyran has studied the ancient text of his people and found a prophecy about how to end the conflict.  The prophecy involves a shifter and a hunter working together to stop the war.  He has found a hunter that is willing to listen to him and work with him to end the conflict. The hunter’s name is Torin and he has disappeared.  Another hunter has come into the area hunting a rogue shifter that is killing indiscriminately.    Alexis is a hunter and the most successful female hunter in the organization.  She was raised by parents that lived, breathed and did nothing but existed for the hunter organization.  They instilled in both of their children that nothing was more important than giving themselves and their lives completely to the Hunter Organization. When her parents were part of the punishment and death of her brother for trying to broker peace with the shifters, Alexis knew her days were numbered too.  She was constantly sent on dangerous missions by herself without back up and she knew that they were trying to have her killed.    When Kyran and Alexis meet he sees her! All lycans see their soul mates in color and only their mates.  He cannot believe that the gods would give him a hunter as a mate. She is severely wounded and Kyan takes her back to his pack and heals her.  Alexis is torn because of the feeling that she feels for the lycan he is so different from all the things she thought she knew about shifters.  He is intelligent, kind, loving and protective of his people.  Both of them know that their people will never accept a mating between the two of them.  Are the gods laughing at the situation they find themselves in?  They cannot live without each other but at the same time cannot be together or can they?  This is a must read book! Overall Rating:  4 Rockin’ Stars  Hero –Kyran: 4 stars Heroine –Alexis: 4 stars Steam: 4 stars  Plot: 4 stars  Cliffhanger: No Would I recommend this book: Yes! Gods, Goddesses, Shifters, Lycans and Hunters all intertwined in an amazing story that provides all the action a reader could possibly want to read.  Love will find away and the end of this book is not what you would expect. Would I recommend this author: Yes! What an amazing mind Ms. Jordan reveals in the stories that she creates for her readers.  Love this author and her unique approach to the shifter world.  ***Received an ARC of this book from the Author in exchange for an honest review***

I love werewolves. They are always going to be my favorite supernatural character. I love it even more when they are totally cool, and have this awesome background :) This is the story of the star crossed lovers, kinda, who kill each other’s kind, who happen to fall for each other. But, think more like Hunger Games type environment of kill or be killed, with extreme military training for the hunters, and some very HAWT wolves! Serious action, not so Romeo and Juliet, but it can be sweet, in between the death threats LOL I loved it!  So Alexis is our lovely lady hunter. She had totally sucky parents. Seriously, I hope they die horribly soon! Anyways, she is, from birth, trained to do nothing but kill lycans aka werewolves. She has never been shown love, or affection, or hell, cartoons for that matter. She is also taught that she is insignificant and defective by her peers and parents. She has a crappy life, until she is wounded quite badly and saved by a lycan. She still tries to kill him when he saves her. LOL It’s ok, she misses. However, he seems to save her a lot in the story. Alexis is very strong, very independent, she has one of the highest kill counts in the hunters. And yet, she totally gets sentimental when she’s finally shown decency. She is always seeming to get hurt, probably because she literally throws herself into battle. She even saves the enemy, who maybe isn’t the enemy after all. I liked her character. I wanted to hug her alot. I’m glad things worked out like they did.  Kyran, aka Ky, is the HAWT piece. LOL He’s the alpha of his pack, and all he wants to do is have peace between the hunters and the shapeshifters. They’ve been at war for thousands of years, and he wants it over. He will do anything, even go above and beyond to befriend a hunter to try to make this happen. Said Hunter happens to be Alexis, who still wants to kill him, and yet, he’s in over his head because he can’t help his attraction to her. Kyran is so sweet, having the more affectionate upbringing. He has a totally awesome brother, Ronan. AND I am so happy to say that I’ve found two men who are good enough in their confidence to show each other their feeling without being sappy. YES! They had some of the best parts of the story. Ky is a total catch, man of your dreams, droolworth main character. GIMME ONE! LOL And things are about to get really crazy for him!  There’s an astounding amount of really good side characters in here! Ronan, Ky’s brother and second, Marce- I’ve shortened her name cuz I forget how to spell it LOL-, Jillian, Trinity, some of the bad guys, Torin-he’s pretty awesome- and Lykil-the very awesome God of Destruction. I love LOVE his character. All of these characters, as well as the mains, were so well written. Look I even remembered their names without reference. They just stuck because I liked them. I love when you enjoy the whole thing, not just parts of a book.  Let talk about world building. I love the new spin on who and what shapeshifters are and how they became. I love the tension between the hunters and the shapeshifter. You can seriously feel it. I am totally all in for all the wonderful action that was in this book. I kept feeling like I should be ducking bullets or fielding bombs, or dodging punches. It’s also very much an emotional ride because Alexis learns to be a whole new person, with emotions attached, while there are just some seriously devastating moments! All I can say is…. PLEASE GIMME GIMME MORE! REALLY! PLEASE! I know there has to be something, because it’s really coming now, but I need something! LOL a WONDERFUL, DEVELOPING, ENGAGING, WOLFY 5 PAWS!!

Kelsey Jordan has created a whole new reality for us.  Kyran and Alexis are born enemies. He just wants an end to the war that has gone on forever, safety for his family and his pack. She has been raised to kill his kind on sight, but even her own people seem to be out to get her killed. They save each other's lives and find themselves in the soul of the other. I really liked Kyran and Lex. They are both warriors, but I loved that he is a good mix of domestic and alpha and doesn't try to curb her warrior tendencies. They had had nearly polar opposite upbringings since he was loved by his family and his pack, and her parents couldn't even bother to tell her good night, but were quick to tell her how defective she was. Then there was Kyran's brother Ronan. The relationship they have as brothers and as leaders for the pack is close, special, and very touching. No Alpha caveman hiding of emotions ... these two are secure in their manhood and not afraid to express themselves To be the god of destruction, Lykil is so adorable in some way. He is a billy bad ass, but fails miserably when he tries that act around Lex. I love the word play he and Torin engage in constantly.  This book is packed with action and emotion ... in fact at one point I was bawling and was just about to shoot off a message to the author screaming "WHY?!?!" at her ... but I calmed down, took a deep breath, and kept reading. It was a good thing I did. You NEED to read this!! There were so many secondary characters who I think are just clamoring to tell their own story, so I can't wait to see where she goes with this :)

The Lycan Hunter is the first in a series by new to me author Kelsey Jordan. The “Forever War” between Lycans and Hunters has been going on for millennia and Lycan Kyran and HunterAlexis had hoped that their pairing was the fulfilling of a prophecy that would end the killing. Follow them as they make their way in a fantastic world filled with Gods who have a personal relationship to their charges. This book will transport you into an intense battle as Alexis and Kyran adjust to a new reality. This book is a terrific fantasy and I look forward to the next installment.

It’s a whole new world…within our own? This has some good world building, but feels like “high fantasy” rather than “urban fantasy”. Humans are discussed, but never seen or dealt with making it feel like a different world entirely rather than just a secret existence within ours. There’s a whole new interesting pantheon, though its politics get a little confusing to follow towards the end. There are ceremonies for EVERYTHING due to this pantheon and it gets a little tedious to read about. The story itself was a little predictable with a final confrontation that was eventful, but so short it was almost anticlimactic. There were also some loose ends here and there that are never really addressed. The romance was good though. I was expecting something a little harsher or more hardcore and was pleasantly surprised. The characters were all likeable and had some depth. Lykil was one of the funnest. The Lycan Hunter is a surprisingly emotional read full of interesting new gods and ways of life. Don’t miss this start to an intriguing series!

The Lycan Hunter (Gardinian World #1) by Kelsey Jordan The last thing Lycan Hunter, Alexis James, expects is to be saved by a wolf.  Pack leader, Mikko Kyran, will do what it takes to stop the war, even playing nice with the local Lycan Hunter.  Neither one of them expects to be part of a prophecy.  Lycan Hunter was an exciting and creative novel.  It kept me intrigued and wanting more. The characters are well-developed and believable.  I especially enjoyed, Mikko Kyran, founder and leader of The Order of the Rockys.  He is a likeable character and good leader. The plot was original and carefully thought out.  This story felt unique and complex.  Jordan did a wonderful job with her descriptions and painting a vivid world.

Reviewed by Andrea Book provided by the publisher for review Review originally posted at Romancing the Book Oh man, I love a great Alpha male and this book has a great one. I was hooked from the first page. The general story is one we’ve read before – humans hunting werewolves. What makes this one unique is the background story of how these two races came to be at war – Gods are involved and divide amongst themselves in support of either the Lycans or the Hunters. Kyran is the leader of his pack, the Mikko. He is constantly dealing with pack issues and is starting to think about taking a wife, even though he hasn’t met his mate yet. It only takes minutes, while on a mission, to realize that his life isn’t going to go as planned. Kryan is a great character. I love many things about him (hello – he is sexy!) – he loves his pack to a distraction and strives to be a great leader. His brother is his best friend and he can really rely on and trust him. Also, he is sexy (did I mention that?). He a true alpha male – strong, loyal and dedicated to his mate. Alexis is the Hunter tasked with killing a rogue Lycan in Kryan’s area. She’s always felt like an outsider – even with her family and definitely within the Hunters. When her brother was killed, she knew that one small mistake and she would follow in his path. When she is confronted by Kyran, she knows she is in trouble, not only with her heart but possibly with her life. She falls fast for Kyran and when she is taken hostage by another Hunter, she knows that she can’t ever go back to the mindless killer that she was. Alexis is a perfect mate for Kyran – she is strong and able to take care of herself. And she easily wins over the pack with her loyalty. Kelsey Jordan has a great way of storytelling. I love that she uses humor in tough situations and that her romantic scenes are hot yet not overdone. The story is faced-paced with a lot of action and while sometimes I wished that there had been a bit more detail, I don’t think there is too much that I would change. I can’t wait to read the rest of the books!

Are you ready to leave your world and dive into Kelsey Jordan’s? The Lycan Hunter is going to pull you into its land of Lycans, Hunters, and the gods that created or took a fancy to watching over them! The little Hunter, Alexis, raised an outcast, has a fierceness about her that could bring the toughest warrior to his knees, but an injury takes her directly into the heart of lycan territory and into the hands and arms of Kyran, an alpha all the way. Sworn enemies, Alexis finds it hard to believe these “savages” could be so caring, so advanced and so nice, well, except for Kyran who is struggling with an aura he saw shining around Alexis, which can mean only one thing, and denial is his first reaction. There is no way this little ball of hate could be his soul’s mate. To top it off, there is a prophecy involved and the gods and fate are probably laughing with twisted delight at his predicament. Can two polar opposites actually be meant for each other? If they were to mate, would it be like two bulls butting heads at every decision? Would his pack even accept someone who admits to killing their kind? And what’s with the god of destruction hanging around, sticking his godliness into their business? Is their chemistry foretold or will it explode like a science project gone wrong? Let’s be honest, there are a few paranormal reads out there, is it even possible to put a fresh coat of lipstick on this genre? Without a doubt, YES and Kelsey Jordan is the artist to thank. Her brilliant attention to world building and her larger than life character development, blending of gods and humans with lycans is done with a wonderful imagination and a touch of suspenseful moments. For those lighter moments, depend on the gods, particularly Lykil, the god of destruction! What a pushover! LOVED HIM! Hats off to Kelsey Jordan and this brilliantly entertaining new series start!

First off, let me say I am not a fan of "Romance" books because there are more pages devoted to redundant "bedroom" scenes along with a weak and boring story line. The Lycan Hunter was NOTHING like this!  Kelsey did a great job pulling you into her world and making you crave more. She mixed the right amount of action, romance and detail to get you hooked!  I will admit, the only downside to The Lycan Hunter was that I missed some much needed sleep and was late coming back from lunch a few times. :) I highly recommend this book and I will be purchasing more books from Kelsey Jordan!  READ IT!
