Summary


Ramses Tariq-Omari has walked the world of man for millennia, a lion shifter, a healer and a soldier, he protects those who know nothing of the paranormal world, of the creatures that seek to harm them. Having served the Goddess Sekhmet since the age of ten, it has been lonely existence indeed, but one he has never regretted having chosen.

Elizabeth DeAnglo needed ‘time out’ from hunting paranormal creatures. Taking a job as a PA to a Wall Street seemed like a plan, until she discovered that her new boss was also the wolf-shifter Alpha of the Hellfire Pack. Since the loss of her fiancé and child to a Wendigo attack, she has trained as a paranormal hunter, driven to hunt down the creature responsible. Only then is she certain that she will find peace. Despite living and working with the Hellfire Pack, despite having a family in her fellow paranormal hunters, she is alone, always on the periphery. When she is attacked, again, by unknown Hellhounds, Elizabeth wonders why she is being targeted. She also wonders at the identity of the mystery archer who comes to her aid.

A millennia-old paranormal warrior and a modern day paranormal hunter. Two sides in opposition, yet fighting the same enemy. The attack will change Elizabeth’s life and force her to face some harsh truths. Can she straddle the worlds of the paranormal and those who hunt them? What will happen if she is forced to choose? Can love overcome the deep-seated prejudice which Ramses will face from Elizabeth’s friends?

Merysekhmet is the first paranormal romance novel written by Jo Pilsworth and Kaitlyn Bosch, two friends who met via Facebook role-play. Based on the legend of the Egyptian Goddess Sekhmet, it forms part of the Diaries of the Cwn Annwn: Hellfire Pack series. Content is aimed at an 18+ audience and contains scenes of mild violence. Some sexual content.

Watch out in 2018 for the next books in the series: Toho, Medved and Ma-iitsoh, along with the series prequel, Cysgodion. Dare you walk in our world?

PROCEEDS FROM MERYSEKHMET WILL BE DONATED TO MEDECINS SANS FRONTIERES (DOCTORS WITHOUT BORDERS).

My Review

5/5 Stars

When Elizabeth’s family is killed, she becomes a hunter of supernatural creatures a way of finding peace. After a while, she decided that she needed a break and that was what lured her into getting a job on Wall Street. The only problem? Casimir is a shifter, and Elizabeth’s problems are only just beginning.

This book had a lot of aspects that I look for in storytelling: interesting mythology, a strong female lead, and a powerful character-driven plot. Each book in the series only does a better and better job of accomplishing these.

Even though Elizabeth was my favorite character, I found that I liked all of them in a way because they felt so real.

An intriguing shifter romance for sure.

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
