    This book is for a Navajo Covid-19 Charity so I thought I would pick it up and find some new authors. I've reviewed all 10 stories. Worth picking up for quick reads and doing a good deed. 4 Stars. The Warrior's Whisper by S.E. Smith 10/10. I liked this story the best. It felt like it encompassed the idea of native american lore and a love story wrapped around each other in a very romantic way. 3 Stars. The Night of the Coyote Moon by Trinity Blacio. 1/10. I'm kind of being generous with the star This book is for a Navajo Covid-19 Charity so I thought I would pick it up and find some new authors. I've reviewed all 10 stories. Worth picking up for quick reads and doing a good deed. 4 Stars. The Warrior's Whisper by S.E. Smith 10/10. I liked this story the best. It felt like it encompassed the idea of native american lore and a love story wrapped around each other in a very romantic way. 3 Stars. The Night of the Coyote Moon by Trinity Blacio. 1/10. I'm kind of being generous with the stars here. It's not any kind of outstanding short story but it wasn't terrible either. I did feel a little preached to about Native American issues but I'm hoping that wouldn't be a common feature of her regular books. This story was just so short that no matter where it was fated to go, it got there really fast. No sex in this book, didn't really feel a lot of romance. The book relied on fate and bonds and had no time to build chemistry. 1 Star. Choosing His Mate by Elle Boon 2/10. This was actually going along well, the writing seemed a bit weirdly wrought with what felt like Regency period undertones but it was good. I felt the chemistry. The sex was hotish. (not a fan of the virgin "my what a big dick you have...it won't fit" cliche though) Then we get the drama, the time jump and then the last few pages and it sucked. Seriously, the ending was just pure ass crap. I could rant for an hour about this but I'm just going to move on. But the ending was pure ass crap. 2 Stars. Nadleehi by Stephanie Burke 3/10. Sigh. M/M MC's which could have been yummy but this book was 1/2 preachy Navajo LGBTQ+ suicide awareness and 1/2 magical dick* one night stand sex scene. *Actually what they called it in the story, it was about the only interesting thing they said because it was the only nod to any levity at all. 3 Stars. Pack Lands by Barb Shuler. 4/10. This was a short story outlining the lives of a pack alpha and his mate settling into a new territory and helping their pack with life events. It also alludes to a vampire couple that they helped so I'm thinking that was an earlier book. This book was heavy on family life commitment but short on excitement. It bordered on boring but at the same time I spent the whole book waiting for the shoe to drop but nothing bad ever happens. BUT I expected it every second which made this a tense read for me even when it was meant to be serene slice of life. 3 Stars. The Alpha's Challenge by Jamie K. Schmidt. 5/10. This one is a mated threesome leading to a M/m/F relationship that could be pretty hot. It was too short so the beginning was a little off putting to me because Nizhoni (A) feels like she is clearly settling for Sike (b) but once Tully (A) is back in the picture the idea of how the relationships might gel a bit more and I felt a better about the Alpha female, beta male, Alpha Male set up. The publicity info says there is more about this throuple in her VIP reading list but I don't like feeling manipulated to join lists for content so I'm leaving them here, sadly. But I will check out this authors backlist to see if anything catches my attention. 2 Stars. Craving by Wendi Zwaduk 6/10. Super instalove between a god and a minor gods daughter. Nothing really happens in this very, very short story. 3 Stars. Wolf Healer by Lia Violet 7/10. This story was well done. Action, adventure and lore. I liked this one. Likable characters. Sex was fade out. 3 Stars. Her Way Home by Kate Richards 8/10 This one was good as well even though Lisa's inner monologue made it a little hard to like her at first. The book skips A LOT of pertinent info that it throws in without any resolution but I liked Lisa and Hawk and Lisa's family. DNF Sunset Moons by J. Loren. 9/10. This was a very pessimistic conspiracy theory based SCI FI story that lost me after the first chapter. Totally not for me.

    Well, that was not what I was expecting at all. Generally, when you publish a book or a novella, you run it through the editor to make sure the spellings and grammar are correct. This was not a case here. After a couple of stories filled with hurtful to the eyes sentences I just could not have gone through it anymore and ended up DNF'ing the read. And I was so excited.

Sad.

    Highly enjoyable. I read this book on the strength of S.E Smiths' writing and discovered that I liked quite a few new to me authors who were featured. Highly enjoyable.

Alludes to a happy ending, but not there for me, not a mating ritual or sex or anything, and six days until the coyote moon. Wondering if this ties in to another book? Choosing His Mate ⭐⭐⭐⭐ This goes back to explain how Cammie came into existence (from Firestarter Book 1/Smokejumper's series). Dyani and Rasmund fated as true mates, is hot and starts out fantastic, but commitment and Rasmund's pack get in the way. I had already read Firestarter, so was somewhat familiar with the epilogue. I thought it was great to know the origin, even if it seemed so unfair. I would've liked to kept on reading about them. Dyani grew a smart mouth and there IS sex after 40 LOL. Heat, humor and HEA Okay, so I had edited this to add all the rest of the stories, hit save, and it's gone! Not doing it again, so this is it.

If you like a quick paranormal read, this story is for you.

    As a Native, I was SO excited for this anthology. Unfortunately, there were typos on the first page and the whole thing needs to be proofread and edited. DNF.

    S.E. Smith Would you consider continuing making this novel into a new series? It's a compelling and a refreshing idea about spirit elementals. S.E. Smith Would you consider continuing making this novel into a new series? It's a compelling and a refreshing idea about spirit elementals.

    I usually review each book separately but some just weren’t worth doing. Grabbed purely for the S E Smith story. Unfortunately the majority were a waste of my time. A couple were okay. Some were part of existing series so I felt lost. Some were a bit preachy. All were extremely short as was to be expected but didn’t always feel completed. If it wasn’t for being a charity book I would have not finished it. Read through Kindle Unlimited but I will not be purchasing it.

Took me a while to get through this which is unusual for me. 1 - THE NIGHT OF THE COYOTE MOON - TRINITY BLACIO 2 - CHOOSING HIS MATE BY ELLE BOON Part of a series I have not read so meant nothing to me. 3 - NADLEEHI - STEPHANIE BURKE 4 - PACK LANDS - BARB SHULERBARB SHULER 5 - THE ALPHA'S CHALLENGE - JAMIE K. SCHMIDT 6 - CRAVING BY WENDI ZWADUKWENDI ZWADUK 7 - WOLF HEALER - LIA VIOLET Actually wasn’t too bad but seemed to jump in places. Would make a good extended story as the fathers reasoning was lacking. 8 - HER WAY HOME - KATE RICHARDS 9 - SUNSET MOONS BY J. LOREN. 10 - THE WARRIOR'S WHISPER BY S.E. SMITH Best book in the anthology. Enjoyable with how it played out but not one I loved. Did like the elemental side and would love more about these characters.

    I only read the book by Elle Boon so far. I always love Elle’s books and this one was no different. Rasmund is to mate in three months but he is given some time to be free before he must do his duty. Dyani is freshly graduated and knows what she wants or at least thinks she does. Rasmund and Dyani have an instant connection. He knows she is his mate but he also knows this going to cause problems with his pack. I will say it wasn’t my favorite.

I still enjoyed the story just wished it worked out a different way. This book is connected to Elle Smoke Jumpers series. I haven’t read that series yet though.

    Hated the 1st couple stories Ok, wow the 1st ones were sad & depressing. Read the 1st 3 & hated them. I finally skipped to the SE Smith which was the whole reason I got the book. But it took me a couple days to work out the courage. Thankfully she didn’t disappoint. Her story was so sweet. Really enjoyed it. The others in between ehhh... I won’t bother risking it.

    I bought this because I like S. E. Smith and because I liked that the proceeds would go to the Navajo Nation's fundraising for their Covid-19 fight. I really couldn't get going with the first couple of stories. I jumped to S.E. Smith's story and my rating is for that. When I come back to this anthology I will adjust my rating.
