Summary

Horse shifter Nick has one rule: never trust a witch.

Nick has devoted his life to making his saloon a safe haven for the feral familiars of New York. So when a brutal killer slaughters a feral under his protection, Nick has no choice but to try and catch the murderer. Even if that means bonding with a handsome Irish witch.

Officer Jamie MacDougal came back from the war in Cuba missing part of a leg and most of his heart. After his former lover becomes one of the killer's victims, Jamie will do anything to solve the case.

Nick comes to Jamie with a proposal: after making a temporary bond, they will work together to stop the murders. Once the killer is caught, they walk away and never see one another again.

It sounds simple enough. But the passion that flares between the two men won't be so easily extinguished. And if Nick can't learn to trust his witch, he stands to lose everything - including his life.

Another captivating installment in Hexworld

Once again Jordan has crafted a wonderful and entertaining world with Hexslayer. I was immersed and submerged, and nearly drowned in the rich details and exciting plot twists.

The narration is excellent. There are a lot of characters and dialogue but I only found myself questioning who was speaking once or twice. That’s really good in my opinion. It’s too often I struggle with keeping characters straight when a narrator’s reading dialogue.

I did not give this story 5 stars, which is unusual for me when it comes to Jordan's books. I felt that there was not enough romance between the two main characters. I am not talking sex, I am talking about love or emotional connection. In the other Hexworld stories I found the two men to be deeply bonded and connected, and there wasn't that dynamic present in this one.

After pondering why I felt this way I think it was because of the ending. I won't divulge any spoilers, but I didn't receive the usual satisfaction I get at the ending of a romance novel. It ended too quickly after a major incident (well really a month had passed by) but that made it even less romantic. The end felt like almost an afterthought, or tacked on to give some small closure rather than the thought processes that led the characters to their final actions. I would have enjoyed a bit more insight into the feelings and thoughts that led to the final few paragraphs. Other than that it was awesome (as I expect in her stories) Jordan is a masterful storyteller--I am looking forward to seeing the Hexworld saga continue!

Satisfying

On second review I realized that this author rocks. Tristan James reads this and all of his narrations with a fine actors aplomb. So good the second time!

Intense

The mystery and intensity of this series keeps growing more and more and I LOVE IT.

Of course the narration made it more so. Tristan James is just a gem. He nailed this performance perfectly as usual.

Jamie was such a strong character despite all he’d been through. He gave as good as he got which was particularly true when it came to Nick. He wasn’t forceful, No, but he didn’t let himself be pushed around / bullied by Nick.

Speaking of Nick, he annoyed me in the initial stages of the book because I kept wondering why he was so damn rude and angry all the time. It became clearer why as the story went on .

Additionally , as I began to understand his thought processes and motives, I began to warm up to him.

The writing here was impeccable as usual. There was no way to predict how the story would go and the final showdown both thrilled and terrified me in equal measure while keeping me on the edge of my seat all throughout.

I’m definitely continuing this series till it’s final book no doubt. I do wonder if Isaac’s book is next. Doesn’t matter to me though, if Tristan James does the audio, I’m listening to it. Period. :D

An amazing story read by an amazing narrator!

I love this series by Jordan L Hawk! It’s not my typical style, so that’s a surprise in itself, but Jordan is an amazing writer so it’s not really a surprise at all.

This series takes place in the past, with a lot of magic and is in a world where shifters (familiars) and witches are part of the main population. In fact the witches are the police and pretty much everything is run with some form of magic – but – it’s still a very harsh world and magic doesn’t necessarily preclude technological advances. It’s fascinating!

We’ve met Nick before, but you don’t have to read these books in order (necessarily) to read this one. However, I do recommend it, not only because they are so good, but because it gives a lot of background.

In this story – Nick – who hates witches – for a variety of reasons – must bond with one in order to help the ferals (unbonded familiars) who are his passion.

Poor Jamie is a “war hero” with a hole in his heart the size of New York. He can’t help but be attracted to Nick even though everything in him screams to stay away.

This is a wonderful enemies to lovers romance, with a mystery and a lot of action. We also get some social commentary and a look at how society manages “the good of all at the price of one”.

The “monster” at the end of this nearly broke my heart – but it was a wonderfully sweet and happy ending. I love these guys together and I think this just might bump book one out of line as my favorite in the series.

I literally laughed and cried and held my breath while reading this – if you’re a fan of the series or the author you won’t want to miss this. If you’ve never read anything by the author I’d suggest this series as it’s wonderful and not as long as some of the others, but I’m sure you’ll want to move on to those as well!

Highly Recommended!

Audio

What can I say about Tristan James that I haven’t before? He’s just so damn good! He’s got this amazingly sensual voice, a terrific Irish accent, a great sense of timing and wonderful emotional depth to his voice that makes stories like this magical.

I loved reading this story but listening is absolutely the way to go. It’s like being given an inside look into this world and being able to listen in on their lives.

Tristan absolutely NAILS Nick's voice and his "horse" mannerisms!

Highly recommended!

Awesome series

Another awesome addition to this series. Historical is not my genre but I love this series. I also don't particularly care for witches but Ms. Hawk has painted an amazing world. I love the familiar/witch theme. We have seen Nick in previous books, he is Rook's brother. He hates witches because of past issues & he thinks that all they do is use familiars. There is a really good plot going on where feral familiars are being killed, in a most gruesome way. I did figure out who was behind it all but it didn't take away from the story. Nick & Jamie made a great couple. Jamie was so kind & caring about Nick's feelings. I can't wait for the next book in the series.

Loved it!

Another great book in the Hexworld series! This installment follows Jamie and horse shifter Nick while they try to uncover a murderer. I always enjoy Jordan L Hawk's books and Tristan James' narrations and Hexslayer was no exception. I really liked that Nick didn't suddenly change his opinions and fall instantly in love. The lying and deceit were a little unfortunate for Jamie but were in character for Nick, who did finally come to terms with his feelings in the end. Looking forward to the next one.

A different take

This is a marvelous series featuring different couples in each book. We get to see previous couples in the subsequent stories though.
Jamie and Nick compliment each other well. This magical series is quite different and amazing. Tristan James brings each character to life and the emotion he manages to convey is astounding. He is always a stellar performer.
