When he’s propositioned by a wealthy stranger, it seems Coy Conlin’s impoverished life is about to be upgraded. But before he can share the news with his family, he comes home to find his grandmother murdered and his little brother missing. To make matters worse, he’s thrown in prison along with every other shifter under the Sovereign’s orders.

August Seaton left his laboratory job at the Asuda Registry to become a Registry officer. But after a mission with his partner goes horribly wrong, August ends up with Coy’s dead grandmother on his hands, and Coy thinks he’s the murderer. Worst of all, his partner discovers his secret.

August is a shifter.

And now he’s Coy’s cellmate. Coy and August must survive each other, abusive guards, and a scientist hell-bent on forcing Coy into a breeding program.

Teamed up, the pair escape prison and journey across the country. With the Registry hot on their trail, they have enough things to worry about. Falling for each other wasn’t supposed to be one of them.

Boy oh boy what a read!!! There are shifters, there is danger, there is a conspiracy going on, and there is attraction between the most two unlikeliest men. A little bit of everything in this first hooknin the series.

This book being book one in this series is basically a book that lays out the lay of the land for how this series is going to go, I believe. It gives background information and how itevents have led up to all the shifters in the land being arrested and caged up like animals. Not to mention tortured and assaulted on a daily basis.

One shifter in particular is bound and determined to escape and figure out what exactly is going on and who is to blame for all of this. Not too mention the fact that he plans to seek revenge for his grandmothers death and rescue his brother from whomever took him. Coy will not rest until he is able to accomplish all of this and more. The one person he plans his revenge on first and foremost is August, whom Coy believes is responsible for Nina’s death.

Little does Coy know, but August has several secrets of his own that he is hiding. One of the most volatile being the fact that he is a shifter also and prays that this will never come too light. But when his secret is discovered by Fate, the one who is behind everything happening, August knows he is in trouble. He just does not realize how much trouble until he is thrown into the same cell as the man who wants to kill him.

This is when the real story begins. Will Coy kill August or will he take him at face value along with the information he gives him? Can these two men work together to escape and hopefully come up with a plan to figure out exactly what is happening and why everyone has ended up where they are now?

This being the first book in this series was very informative on the background information for his series. It has definitely caught my attention and had left me impatiently waiting for the next book to come out. I cannot wait to see what awaits August and Coy. Very good read!!!!

Galley copy of King Of The Fire Dancers (Shift happens book 1) provided by NineStar Press 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.

Please comment! We'd love to hear from you.
