Caine Greennard, lone wolf, left his pack because his shifting control seemed to be slipping. Afraid of possibly causing danger to the pack and refusing to wear a silver chain that would prevent him from shifting, he takes up residence amongst humans.

Emma Gray has a great nose. Her sense of smell has done wonderful things for her, so when it picks up an earthy scent she is unable to anything but follow the smell into a night club. Inside she finds a gorgeous man plastered with two women. Cutting her losses, she bails.

The next day Emma’s aunt is kidnapped and a note is left demanding Emma meet the kidnappers at the night club that night. What ensues is the fulfillment of a prophesy that foretold the big three coming together: panther, wolf and vampire.

Scions: Revelation is the first book written by Patrice Michelle that I’ve ever read. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The story was fast paced, had a touch of darkness and was hot, hot hot. It is a shapeshifter romance that, as a first time reader of the series, went in a direction I didn’t expect. I started reading the book at 7  and finished it at 9:30, because the story and characters were primal, and the bursts of action intense.

I had no problems reading Revelation as a stand alone, but to understand the world building better I’d suggest reading: Scions: Resurrection, Scions: Insurrection and Scions: Perception (a bite).

Emma is a woman coming into her own. She is also drawn to Caine in a soul deep attraction. To protect Emma, Caine would do anything, and with two different factions looking to acquire her, he just may have to pull out all the stops.

Scions:Revelation is a quick, enjoyable read. It is one of those books that gets to the point and tells a good story. After years of readers turning their backs on series romance because of its predictability, Scions: Revelation proves that series books have evolved.

Scions: Revelation will be released Dec. 1, 2008.
