even though I can t say than that because spoiler The half breed triplets were once again wrecking havoc on the uaint town of Cornerstone and this time around they have feral wolves in toe Shay finally came out of her shell but her happiness was short lived by virtue of Meade being EVIL We also get 100% confirmation about what happened to Knight in the previous book and although that particular subject still makes me horribly uncomfortable it was lessened by the fact that he s a male Hmm ouble standard much The final chapters end on a high note with several weddings only to immediately come crashing own on readers heads afterward because again Meade EVILGRAY BISHOP gave me the worst case of feels I ve had in a long time but I fully expect myself to cheer out loud when the villains get what s coming to them in WHITE KNIGHT Watch out girls the Mcueens are coming for YOU.

See this review and others like it at Badass Book ReviewsGray Bishop follows Black Rook in the Cornerstone Run Trilogy and I found it to be a much enjoyable book overall It was action packed and so many things happened to lead us toward the final conclusion I efinitely Inside Academia don t recommend jumping into the series with this book Start from the beginning and enjoy the rideJillian and Bishop are the main couple Bishop is the oldest son of the Cornerstone Run Alpha and will take over the pack oneay even though he is only a gray wolf Jillian is also the child of the her pack Alpha and will be the Alpha female one Protest Politics in the Marketplace day when she marries another black wolf They have undeniable chemistry but their familial expectations make it impossible for them to be together Their wolves might have chosen each other but the humans know it is not meant to beBishop occupies a weird space in pack hierarchy The first son of the Alpha he was raised to be the successor The problem is he s only a gray wolf not a black one His youngest brother Rook was born a black wolf and could have taken pack leadership away from Bishop until he met his half breed mate Brynn Now that Bishop knows for sure that Rookoesn t want the leadership role he s secure in himself and his leadership but that Celestial Tears Hidden Alchemy doesn t mean he wants to be Alpha right away Jillian suffered aevastating loss her husband and her unborn child in a car accident She s been trying to rebuild herself and to find another black wolf to marry so her pack s leadership can be passed along She will be the pack s Alpha female and whoever she marries with be the Alpha Jillian and Bishop have responsibilities to their separate packs which means they can t be than bed buddies no matter what their hearts want I liked Bishop and Jillian so much in this book than the first They both came off a little cold in Black Rook but here they had so many faucets to their characters Jillian had an icy exterior at times but it was only to protect herself from getting hurt again She was actually a calming yet The Exposition of Artistic Research driving force for Bishop and I think helped him find the strength to live up to his potential Bishop also helped Jillian to heal and move on from her past tragedyIt s hard to talk any about Gray Bishop without revealing spoilers they start from the very beginning We learn secrets that Bishop Knight and Jillian have been keeping see major changes in the Cornerstone Run and its leadership and we even learn about the Mcueen s mother I still want to know about the Magus and their motivations for setting everything in motion but I m sure that s being saved for the last book Obviously as a paranormal romance this book sets events into motion to bring Jillian and Bishop together I saw what happened coming but it still hit me pretty hard it was very emotional Knight also went through a lot in this book and his changes also helped Shay to come into her ownThough I wasn t blown away by Black Rook I was fully invested in Gray Bishop I felt like the story and characters were much freer to thrive now that the world building and setup had been established I am very excited to read the finale White Knight to find out how Knight is going to act and to see the culmination of Shay s story as wellThank you to InterMix and

is one ofeath and tragedy right up there with the best of all tragic heroines Blood curdling Dream Save Do: Life is Short, Live Your Dream darkness seems to be the underpinning of Meade s writing in this trilogy and she wrings out everyrop while keeping the reader pinned to the pageWhile this is shelved with the paranormal romance stories I actually take exception to that genre placement Yes there is romance as Bishop and Jillian try to make an extremely unlikely relationship work but that isn t the heart of the story Rather the bonds of family the pain of loss and Orality in Igbo (African) Literature deep insanity rule theay an odd mix of Southern Gothic and savage thriller that stands up to the best of both genresYes I will go back and read the first and the third as well Meade had Modern English in Action (Level 12) definitely goneark in this series and the Nature-Inspired Metaheuristic Algorithms depth of the story makes me anxious to get the time to read her Dreg City series written under the name Kelly Meding I wonder if they are asark bloody and lusciousI received this book from the publisher in return for a realistic review All thoughts except for the uote from Rabid Reads are my own I read this as a stand alone something I NEVER The Alchemical Mandala A Survey of the Mandala in the Western Esoteric Traditions do in a series and I am glad that Iid I

reviewI had a great time with Brynn and Rook in the first volume and I was curious about Jillian and Bishop here But fear not because we find again with great pleasure all the characters we had previouslyiscovered and it was interesting to see how everyone was changingBishop and Jillian know that there is something between them but they also know they can not get carried away by their passion They are both vying to become the Alpha of their pack and a relationship is impossible Yet it is Digital Feminist Activism: Girls and Women Fight Back Against Rape Culture difficult for the two to leave this side story alone Then they will have many other issues toeal with and not the least Because of course the bad guys of the first volume are always there and ready to The Story of Han Xiangzi: The Alchemical Adventures of a Daoist Immortal (China Program Book) do anything to achieve their goals And when they attack the Jillian s village our heroes will face much worse than they thought and the impact will soon fall on them But in addition to this couple we have I can t say much about the plot because being book 2 there will be spoilers so all I m going to say is that this is Bishops story We still get the POVs from other characters but we get a inebt look at the middle child I loved book one of this trilogy Black Rook and couldn t wait to read from the Mcueen brothers Well I wasn t Alien Mate (Zerconian Warriors, disappointed with this because wow this book was a rollercoaster So many FEELS It was nice to get to know Bishop In Black Rook he was the strong brother

lot It was so sad and my heart broke for the brothers Poor Bishop has so much toeal with and then with what happens to Knight Every character grew so much from the previous book I m glad that Shay
