The book follows Jay Fields as our main character. Jay lives in a world where elves, vampires, werewolves and other supernatural creatures live amongst us. Society is run through sectors and rules to keep the piece and help the world live mutually with one another. Jay is someone who seems human but also powers of his own, the power of tracking such supernatural creatures. Jay has returned to his life after four years away to an ex-girlfriend vampire who is still intent on making him hers and a boss/friend who isn't too pleased on his style anymore. Jay is now working a somewhat case involving a missing elf for a friend who is a sector agent when things get out of hand.
What was interesting about this book is that it takes an interesting view and story involving vampires, elves, werewolves etc. Sometimes it feels like the literary world just conjures up the same things over again i.e. a love story of human/vampire or an overly gory story. Although this story does still have some of the human/vampire love story part, Jay may not be very human himself and there is definitely something different. It doesn't overtake the story either. I really enjoyed the majority of characters and how they all played their parts in the story, with the exceptions of David. The story was also very well written and although not overly fast-paced, it definitely read at a decent pace and worked for the plot. I would also say that I enjoyed reading more about Jay as a character, the people he ran into and him trying to work out who/what he is more than him trying to catch his missing elf for his friend.
I wouldn't say there was anything in particular that I didn't enjoy in this book. I enjoyed everything I suppose!
Overall, definitely something new and interesting in the supernatural, maybe thriller/action genre from a more unknown author. It's great to see that such authors do have just as good or better writing skill than known authors too. I really enjoyed the use of making America within the realms of our own world too.

Once Lost Lords, is a book about survival, love, and intense battles. Stephan Morse takes us into dark times, where Elves, wolves, vampires are living together. Jay Fields is a tracker; one of the few left that takes contract jobs from his friends to make ends meet. As you do, he gets mixed into a favor of which costs him more than he originally bargained.
“I closed both eyes and tried to wish the lock of hair away. That failed.” Jay says after he returns from a four-year absence to avoid certain confrontations.
The battles were epic and the fights very pleasantly explained. Stephan Morse’s art in literature is superb. He writes in such a manner that you can effortlessly visualize the scenes in your head. I believe this skill is something not many writers have, and I congratulate him for his talent.
The characters, plot and the overall story was intriguing, and if you are a person that likes to read science fiction stories, this book is definitely up your avenue. Each setting was explained with precision, and it was clear that the author wanted to intensify the feeling of its reader and capture their attention in every scene.
With all said, I did find the book a little slow in pace at times. For instance, Jay Fields gets out of bed to leave his house as his friend is waiting on him. From his bed to the door you would have had to read, at least five pages containing Jay’s thoughts, possible black flashes, then physical surroundings and maybe some dialogue with his friend. You could not help yourself sometimes from asking where is the Author going with this?
Having said this, do not turn away from the book as it has just enough juice to please any reader. The ending was very nicely put together. It leaves a fair amount of curiosity for wanting to know what happens next but yet content to where it leaves you.
