Somewhere between falling and flying… you will find the truth.
The truth is being unveiled and Iris’ past is unlike anything she ever could have guessed. For Stryx, finding your missing half doesn’t always mean finding your mate.
Iris has been missing a part of herself for so long that no one is sure she will be able to put the pieces back together and her ever reliable dreams may be forcing her astray. Coping with the death of someone she loved, she is forced to face the truth and break free from the lies that have caged her.
Stryx - released October 2014
I jumped in to reading this second book in the series before reading book one and had no problem picking up the storyline.
I was pleasantly surprised to read about this alternate world that incorporates a paranormal bird element. However, not really shapeshifting or flying or literal physical traits - more like the essence of.
Explanations and analysis are given as the main character and her entourage navigate the politics of their world.
Lots of friendship bonding and some romance also grabbed my attention in this story.
