Spiritual familiars have existed since the beginning of time. Familiarus are those who have died and have performed a pure act or acts of selflessness to be reborn into a spiritual being, who serve and protect their charges until they are no longer needed. Despite Cameron’s shady past, his good deed enables him to be reborn into a Familiarus and go on a journey of self-discovery of his sexuality and his own supernatural abilities. However, someone is targeting the familiar’s charges through a series of ritualistic killings. It’s only a matter of time before the killer strikes again. Can Cameron protect his charge from the same fate?

Wow talk about a book with a never ending amount of twist and turns that I would have never seen coming. And even more surprising is the way the book ended and left me wanting book two like……NOW.

Familiarus are people who have something selfless in their lifetime to deserve life after death. But the thing is they come back in an animal form and made aware of the magicked world around them. Now further explanation about a familiarus is that not only do they come back with an animal form but they can shift into their human form also. Those that are chosen for this life have a human (they call them a pet) that they are in charge of to protect with their life if need be. Not everyone is chosen for this type of life but those that are it is because they are special for some reason or another and they have showed that they can be truly selfless in their lifetime to earn this amazing gift.

But just like with everything that is good their is also bad and those that are bad are truly bad. Yes there is bad in everyone or everything but those that let the bad lead the way are those that truly become a demon.

Cameron is the last person that expected to become a familiarus because of all the wrong choices he made in his lifetime but those that was good choices is what earned him this life. Cameron was definitely not accepting of all the rules at first but the more he is brought into the life and the more a situation arises and turns more dangerous by the second the more he realizes that these people have become the family he never had.

Someone is targeting familiarus and killing them and their pets they are in charge of. Cameron has decided along with Felix and a few others to try and figure out what is truly going on and if there is a trader among them. Along with this Cameron and Alex continue to grow closer even though it is against the rules.

Can they figure out what is going on and who is behind it before it is too late?

This book was an extremely exciting read. There are twist and turns. There is backstabbing. There is intrigue and mystery. There is also love. This was truly an amazing read and I cannot wait for the next one to come out. Especially with an ending like there was in this. The ending alone truly blew me away.

Galley copy of Familiarus: Light and Dark provided by Nora Jones in exchange of an honest review.


Hello, I am an avid reader of male/male books. I do not have a favorite genre when it comes to male/male books because I love all of them from romance, dark reads, paranormal, shifter, threesome, whatever I see that catches my eye at the time. I read books about rock stars, CEOs, military, cops, and just the original plain old good boy types of books. Basically when it comes to a book, I read whatever I am in the mood for at the time. So my tastes varies from day to day and sometimes even hour to hour.
