About the Author
Jordan L. Hawk grew up in the wilds of North Carolina, where her bootlegging granny raised her on stories of haints and mountain magic. She might have follow in the family business, but found herself unable to resist the lure of forbidden knowledge, and became an archaeologist instead. After growing tired of mummy curses and ghastly discoveries, she used a silver knife in the light of a full moon to summon her true love and turned to spinning tales. She weaves together couples who need to fall in love, then throws in some evil sorcerers and undead just to make sure they want it bad enough. In Jordan’s world, love might conquer all, but it just as easily could end up in the grave.

Whybourne and Griffin’s beautiful relationship continues to grow, but there is still insecurity on both sides, which leads to misunderstandings, but they come out stronger in the end (and omg, that lovemaking scene during the thunderstorm…)
If you have read Widdershins, then continue with Threshold. In spite of the outer space being factor, it was a great read, and I recommend this series to any m/m fan.
For one, Christine really grew on me in this one. I wasn't particularly fond of her in the first book; she struck me as the inevitable female supporting character cliche, although much better fleshed out than many other characters of her kind. In this book, she shines. To the point where you wish you had a Christine of your own. I mean, the lady kicks ass in every way you can imagine, and she does it with a dry sort of humor that many of us wish we possessed. By the end of the book I was in love with her. I do fall in love relatively often while reading m/m romance but NEVER with a female character.
I was glad to see some faults in Griffin. He was just so freaking perfect in the first book that I spent a lot of time being anxious for Whyborne. The introduction of the ex lover definitely shook things up without overwhelming the story line. It also served to expose some of Griffin's insecurities which in turn made him more likeable as a character. I spent a lot of time being anxious for Whyborne in this book too; the man is a trouble magnet! But the way he develops in this story is astounding. You can see him finally come out of his shell and become the man we all knew he was from the beginning. He's such a sweet and faithful guy; it was so awesome to see him kick some ass while staying true to who he is as a person.
The story line itself was just as imaginative and complex as the first one. A definite page turner. I don't want to give anything away, but if you liked the action in the first book, this one will blow you away. And it flows so smoothly, it's a pleasure to read.
The sex scenes. Holy crap. There was this one, with the storm raging outside; I don't want to ruin it for anyone so I won't say any more than that. But I swear, my Kindle got too hot to touch. The temperature in my room went up at least ten degrees.
All in all, I really, really enjoyed this. I do hope there will be another Whyborne & Griffin book coming out at some point. I got really attached to these guys. And Christine. Oh please, let's have more of Christine :)
Griffin is hired by Whyborne's father to investigate a disturbance in a coal mining town called Threshold. Although Whyborne hates travel of any kind and would prefer to stay at home in Widdershins, he accompanies Griffin and Christine to Threshold.
Whyborne loses what little self-confidence he has when confronted with Griffin's ex-lover Elliot. How can poor "why-were-you-born" hope to compete with the handsome and dashing Pinkerton? While this provides some angst and complications to the story I'm happy to report is wasn't obnoxious and frustrating. I didn't have to wait long before Whyborne and Griffin actually talked about the situation and put any fears to rest. And while Whyborne still doesn't understand how Griffin could possibly love him, Griffin does his best to show his lover that he does in fact love him more than anything.
Christine as always is a welcome addition to the story. While she and Whyborne have always been friends/colleagues, they're quickly becoming like brother and sister with the way they care for one another.
I loved seeing Whyborne so out of his element in this book. And even though he's in a completely new environment, he still acts gentlemanly and proper and is his normal awkward self. One particular scene where he finds himself in the company of a group of whores had me laughing so hard. Whyborne is the only man who would tip his hat to them, address them by name, buy them a drink and then have a normal conversation at the table. He's just so precious...
This series only gets better as it progresses.
