Inheritance: Lord of Ravens
Lover. Predator. Killer.
Laurence Riley’s inheritance comes with a price - one he's not at all sure he can pay. When his urge to hunt grows out of control, he sends a desperate prayer to his ancestor for guidance. But he never expected that Herne the Hunter would answer.
Scion. Target. Victim.
There are horrors lurking in Quentin d’Arcy’s past, but they won’t hide there forever. Something ancient is coming to take him home: a creature of nightmare who feasts on the flesh of children. When the choice is between his own life and the lives of innocents, there is no choice at all.
Honesty is the worst policy.
A legendary horror comes to San Diego, but it’s merely an emissary. Laurence has seen the real monster, and it’s a darkness which will destroy everything he loves – especially if Quentin ever finds out what it did to him as a child.
It’s down to Laurence to prepare for war against a force which far outmatches him. The enemy has the most powerful weapon of all at his disposal, and if they’re to stand a chance, Laurence must master the same power.
He must learn magic.

Rainbow Awards 2016 Winner
Excellent writing style, including dialogue that shows differences between American and British characters. This novel manages to be a fast read despite being written from alternating viewpoints AND being over 600 pages long.
I loved this book completely from beginning to end. I adored to super Britishness of Quentin and Freddy, and how down-to-earth Laurence and his mom are, and the unapologetic bi characters – that this reads as a full-rainbow story is glorious. My only regret is that I didn’t read book one first (which makes for a bamboozling first couple of chapters, but I soon caught on), and I would recommend everyone does!
Rainbow Awards 2016 Honourable Mention
Jack of Thorns is a beautifully written book that touches on difficult subjects of various addictions, traumas and asexuality. The development of both main characters is described perfectly, and what's more, even though there are paranormal elements, is totally believable. Besides, nothing is rushed or underdeveloped.
Jack of Thorns was a captivating read. It’s an atypical romance that can get you so engaged in the characters that you don’t really care if they’re getting it on, and this one sets the scene with a few paranormal twists that really enrich things. Which is not to say that I wouldn’t love to see more development between Laurence and Quentin, but I’m willing to get into Book 2 for that 😊
