Welcome to the Mystic Zodiac Series.
High atop Mount Olympus, the ancient Gods and Goddesses still reside, hidden from mortal view.
They have always been there.
WILL always be there.
They dabble in the lives of humans and lesser immortals, known as Mystics.
For fun. Out of boredom. Simply because they can.
They thrive on watching people squirm under their thumbs. Laugh and celebrate each other while plotting to top what they did.
This is where our story begins…
Gideon Deckard is finally getting a little time away from the Keystone Predator Pack to go wolf. All he has planned is a week of running wild through the Grand Canyon before the hiking season starts back up. Once it does, he’ll go back to what he does best…being the Alpha he was born to be.
Ryder Sparks can barely contain her excitement. She’s taking a week off from work at the family store, Sparks Sporting & Outdoors, and going on her dream vacation. A four day hiking trip on a lesser traveled trek through the Grand Canyon. The season has opened early and she was the first to get the coveted pass. She’s looking forward to pushing herself on her first solo trip and discovering who she was really meant to be.
A run in with a massive grey wolf has Ryder stumbling and getting knocked out. When she wakes up, she’s back in her tent and there’s a hunky man there to help her get back on her feet. When she finds out he’s a wolf-shifter instead of freaking out, she decides to go on the adventure of a lifetime with him. Now all she has to do is convince Gideon to give her a chance to be his one and only Luna.
NOTE: Mystic Zodiac is a 12 book series. It is NOT a serial. Each book ends in a happily ever after for the main couple. However, the prologue and epilogue of each story follows the Gods that kick off the series, Eros and Chlotho (aka Chloe). At the end of the series the bet between the two will come to a conclusion.
If you love books about shifters and finding their mates you will love this book.
We start off meeting Eros the God of Love and Chloe one of the Goddesses of Fate they are on month Three of Twelve trying to mate couples. This is book 3 you don’t have to read in sequence as I have done but it will help with the prolog. There is some major sexual tension between the gods I can’t wait to see how that plays out hehe.
After convincing her family that she would be ok going on a solo hike for four days Ryder leaves on her adventure. She is at peace and feeling tranquil when she stops for the night.
Then her life changes in the blink of an eye. She finds her mate. She learns new things and surprises Gideon at every turn.
They learn that she has shifer blood in her family and it makes things easier for her. This is a well thought out book and I loved every minute of it.
I cant wait to see what Eros and Chloe are up to next……
