Summary

Half human, half alien, Gryke is the most vicious Bracadyte in Aukrabah. His hatred and distrust for the land walkers runs deep—especially for Fiona Henagar. The female Marine is smart, gorgeous, and self-sufficient. With every breath, she confounds him and attracts him. But when she steals the ancient Bracadyte scrolls, Gryke has no choice but to confront his feelings for her and go after her. Fiona Henagar doesn’t have time for love. She lives a life of duty to her country until her son, Andrew, is kidnapped by the government. Stealing the Bracadyte scrolls to pay off her son’s kidnappers, Fiona vows to stay one step ahead of Gryke—and her growing feelings for him. As they fight against government plots and spies, will they succumb to their deepest desires or will old prejudices tear them apart?

A brilliant sci-fi romance

Ditter Kellen does it again! I absolutely love her books; she is a talented author with remarkable imagination. I was wholly fascinated by the engaging plot and characters. This is a story about a beautiful beast, Grykes, a vicious Bracadyte and his beauty, Fiona, a human. They have a passionate connection, and their chemistry is off the charts.

Fiona is an independent, fierce, and brave woman, who will go to great lengths for Gryke. Gryke is a complex, highly loyal, and doesn't embrace his half-human side. If anything, he resents and holds great prejudices against humans. Falling in love with Fiona forces him to come to grips with his inclinations.

The narration by Johnny Mack is outstanding, and I was delighted to hear the book brought to life. Overall, this audiobook was entertaining and super hot and wholly enjoyed every minute of it.

Beautiful Beast Meets His Beauty

Gryke is one Bracadyte that I couldn't wait to hear more about! The strongest and toughest men are always the one that fall and fall hard for their true mate. Just like the Beast in Beauty and the Beast, he was drawn to his lovely lady against his own will. It was his heart that lead the way as it slowly but methodically steered him towards Fiona. I can't express in words just how fun and magical it was to watch Gryke finally figure out what he not only craved the beauty before him, but he admired and loved her. His love was just as fragile as Fiona's since it was scarely used except for close friends and family. When Fiona found herself facing an unspeakable future of a bliss she never knew, she was determined to fight for it.

If Gryke was fierce before Fiona, he was downright monstrous when it comes her happiness and safety. Fiona would gladly battle Gryke for anything as long as he did so at her side. I loved come back to this fascinating world full of people who are more human then one of the ones they have come in contact with over the years. Getting to know more of these wondrous and brave men and women made my world explode into sheer bliss. This is what every serious reader wants: more access to the characters that we have fallen hopelessly in love with.

Ditter Kellen delivers in grand style and so much more when she gave us Gryke. We get unfettered access to the heart and mind of this incredible warrior. Nothing comes in the way of us enjoying every second of this journey with an equally fierce and determined woman. The battle of wills that ensue is one full of humor, danger, and excitement the neither expected. What a wonderful experience that I will not soon forget!

The narration was once again superb and highly entertaining! I always enjoy books that are read by this fabulous artist. He opens my eyes to this story in a whole new way and deepens my appreciation of his talent and the boundless creativity of DItter Kellen. I look forward to the next story in the captivatingly exquisite series.

Finally... Gryke’s Story.

It’s unfortunate that I haven’t listened to all the previous books but I do own the first two so I had the beginning background. It’s important that you know something about the Bracadytes and the reason the government is trying to find them, or rather, hunt them down. Gryke is full of complex emotions because he is half human but embraces only his Bracadyte side. He hates humans but has to come to grips with his prejudices when he finds himself falling for the human woman Fiona. Thinking she’s a betrayer with no loyalty he soon finds the truth, that her loyalty very is strong, just not in what he thought it was toward.
The story felt a little rushed but it could be that I was just missing information from previous books. Again, it’s best to read from book one, Enigma.

Johnny Mack is a great narrator and killed this one as well. Kudos, Johnny!

Nice

The narrator did a very nice job with the female voices as well as the male.
I read the first book in this series when it first came out. It was okay but I never read anymore of them until now. I thought that I would try again with a different book since I love this author's other books so much. I was pleasantly surprised by it. I may even have to go back to read the others.
Fiona takes some scrolls from the Bracadytes in order to exchange them for her son's life. Gryke goes after her because he thinks she is a traitor. He finds out that the bad guys have both her son and her brother. Jeffries is the name of the human that wants the scrolls in order to destroy the Bracadytes.
Gryke discovers that even though he doesn't like humans because they killed his mother that he has judges the whole species from the action of a few.

Great Read

Gryke (Enigma, #6) was another great read by Ditter Kellan. Gryke is a very vicious Bracadyte who hates what they call the land walkers. He hates Fiona with everything that he has. The kidnapping of her son makes her face Gryke and their feelings for each other. This was another great read in this great series.

Well-written romantic suspense

My first short read/listen from author Ditter Kellen, although I own the first book in this series I’ve never gotten around to reading it. I was given an Audible copy of this book & am voluntarily reviewing it. Well-written romantic suspense, captivating with well-developed characters. I'll read more by Ditter Kellen.

Ditter, you are killing the GAME!!!

I really enjoyed this story about Gryke and Fiona. When we last saw them Gryke was pissed that Fiona stole the scrolls. This book deals with both of them trying to not only fight the pull between them, more on Gryke's end, and what drove Fiona to do what she did. While both of them are trying to navigate through life we have multiple baddies trying to destroy save the world from the evil Bracadytes and the infection they spread.

Gryke is one of those characters that has always been a loner. He does not have many friends and people tend to give him a wide berth. Over the past couple of books he seems to have a chip on his shoulder and we understand why. The only think that annoyed me about the set up was I thought it was going to more traumatic then it actually was. I do understand it still sucks what happened to him but the amount of anger he has towards humans did not make sense to me.

Fiona on the other hand just randomly came about. I know that she is a strong independent woman but at times I wanted to tell her it is okay to lean on someone. There were times when both her and Gryke were at odds for no reason because they were not communicating with on another. I loved the way Gryke was with Andrew, I have a soft spot for children in stories.

I am excited to see where Ditter Kellen takes this series because there are so many things to explore. What is going on with the vaccine? Why is the ex president so hell bent on bringing down the Bracadytes and what does he gain? What why happen to Fiona's brother and will Andrew be okay with Gryke being his father? How does the King of Aukrabah really feel about having all these humans and human things in his kingdom? Will be ever meet other Bracadytes that Gryke mentioned to Andrew? There are so many more questions that I have and I need to continue reading to see if some of my questions will be answered.
