Motherfucking hell. Dude. Dudes. Fucking hell.
Such a damned good book.
This is seriously hands-down the tightest, well-written novels ever to slap itself awake and crawl out of Jordan L. Hawk’s complicated and wonderful mind. The range of characters, the world building… the goddamned worldbuilding… the weave into historical events and the laying down of the simplest of details enrich every damned pica this book is made out of.
Do yourself a favour and pre-order this book, mix up a pot of tea or coffee…whatever the hell that will let you mainline some oxygen and jangling nerves… and wait for the download button to bring this wonderment into your life.
Take the day off. Read it. I’ll write you a note. Okay, maybe the note won’t do you any good but this book will.
Hexbreaker by Jordan L. Hawk. (The L stands for L’Fuckingamazing)
Will a dark history doom their future together?
New York copper Tom Halloran is a man with a past. If anyone finds out he once ran with the notorious O’Connell tunnel gang, he’ll spend the rest of his life doing hard time behind bars. But Tom’s secret is threatened when a horrible murder on his beat seems to have been caused by the same ancient magic that killed his gang.
Cat shifter Cicero is determined to investigate the disappearance of one friend and the death of another, even though no one else believes the cases are connected. When the trail of his investigation crosses Tom’s, the very bohemian Cicero instinctively recognizes the uncultured Irish patrolman as his witch. Though they’re completely unsuited to one another, Cicero has no choice but to work alongside Tom…all the while fighting against the passion growing within.
Tom knows that taking Cicero as his familiar would only lead to discovery and disaster. Yet as the heat between them builds, Tom’s need for the other man threatens to overcome every rational argument against becoming involved.
But when their investigation uncovers a conspiracy that threatens all of New York, Tom must make the hardest decision of his life: to live a lie and gain his heart’s desire, or to confess the truth and sacrifice it all.
