In a basic plot that involves several sub- or perhaps concurrently developing co-plots the story develops as follows: Kurt, the Vampire Master of Seattle, Parker, his alpha male werewolf pack leader and Garrett Larkin the powerful mage witch of the local Coven join together to perform a tryst to restore peace and stop the annihilation of the members of their aberrant type residing in the area. The spell they attempted did produce the desired effect. However, it did not work exactly as it should have and each had gained part of each other’s powers leaving each weakened in the powers called for in their positions. This was especially significant for Kurt who could be challenged in a winner-take-all struggle for his powerful position. Garett asks her mentor Feodor to help. Results are mixed and more attempts continue to be made. Simultaneously, Parker becomes enamored of Melera, who is from another planet and she is one who realizes that Mag Beloc, from still a different planet, has decided that earth will be the perfect place to set up his empire to run his nefarious enterprises. Additionally, the reader discovers that Kurt has ‘feelings’ for Parker, but also is involved with Garrett, who enjoys being the recessive in Dom situations; Parker is in an arrangement of necessity with his female wolf partner, who in turn is jealous of his relationship with Melera; Jealous Regents sense Kurt’s possible loss of powers and offer challenges; the intergalactic confrontation takes place; and eventually all of the plots and sub-/co-plots coalesce to form a fascinating whole.
At first glance an attempt to amalgamate into one entity so many seemingly widely diverse activities would seem an impossible task. Instead, the author has juggled these various complications together in a manner as magical as the activities indulged in by her characters. And she has presented them as being performed by surprisingly interestingly described characters. A fascinating read for anyone enjoying escape from reality.
Author Roxanne Bland is a great urban dark fantasy story teller that pushes the limits in the US city of Seattle Washington, which is now the tale of two cities. One city is for the humans and the other city plays out in the darkness under the moon. For me the ‘Invasion’ follows ‘The Underground’ extremely well. With vampires, werewolves, shapeshifters and space aliens, this adult adventure is fast paced, graphic, and puts “Earth in Mag Beloc’s—Melera’s alien nemesis cross hairs.”
I always quote a passage to reveal the Author’s writing style without spoiling the story. “Inside Melera’s huge cavern base, Parker lay on her bed half asleep, luxuriating in his vacation from the world. These last eight days or so with Melera had been like heaven. No phones, no clients, no pack, just the two of them.
He smiled as he listened to her play her whatchamacallit and sing along with it. At first, it sounded more like noise—screeches, howls and growls—than music. But the more he listened, the easier it was to make out themes and motifs, and at times, he could even follow its syncopated rhythms. He’d gotten to the point where he actually kind of liked the piece.
His smile faltered. Melera wasn’t playing her instrument for his benefit, he knew. It was the code she was trying to break, that would alert her battle fleet for delivery to the Vst.”
I, Theodocia McLean endorse Invasion by Roxanne Bland as this adult dark urban fantasy is an easy read after I got to know some of the characters in ‘The Underground’. Each book stands alone and will hold your attention if you love all the things that could go bump in the night on the ground and overhead. I purchased this book from Kindle and this review was written on November 7, 2017.
They are all really struggling with the same thing: which is keeping their individual pack or groups together. There is so much animosity and hostility between the group. They are growing frustrated, and it is ripping them apart. There is a significant movement against the humans. For better or worse they are trying to stay together and keep things as normal as they can be.
This book had a fascinating overall theme. This theme was power and its positive and negative effects. It shows that the choices that leaders make really affect people in their groups or people under their control. It reminds us that leadership is challenging role and not one to be taken lightly.
Overall this book is super unique and different than what is out their right now in the market. I am unsure that there is a category or genre of this individual book. The writer is witty and has a way with words that really impressed me. There is also a crazy vivid imagination which is needed in this world of over saturation of books. I believe this is the type of book you really need to enjoy organically without a ton of information or spoilers. I really hope you will check out this fun and quirky book!
