Emma Gray has lived a life of seclusion with her beloved aunt.  Now that aunt has been kidnapped, and Emma must trust a mysterious stranger to help her rescue her aunt.

Something about Caine Grennard stirs her in ways she has never felt before and compels her to trust him when she knows next to nothing about him.  She knows she likes the way he smells, and she certainly likes the way he looks… 

An outcast from his pack, Caine is a werewolf on the edge of his control.  He has become resigned to living a solitary life – then he meets delicious little Emma Gray and it seems he just can’t help himself where she is concerned. 

But there are secrets about Emma that even she isn’t aware of – secrets that threaten not only their budding relationship but everyone they care about.

I used to be a stickler for reading series books in order.  I’ve relaxed on that point a bit now, and have been happy to find a large number of series books work well as standalone novels, like Patrice Michelle’s third book in her SCIONS series, REVELATION

Although I haven’t read any of the other SCIONS books – YET – I had no trouble immersing myself into this world and following the story easily.  The world building seems effortless, making me feel as if I had stepped into a world I were already mostly familiar with, although Ms. Michelle certain gives the paranormal world her own spin to a degree. 

I said that REVELATION works well as a standalone, but I will say that having read it, I am itching to read the other stories in this saga:  RESURRECTION, INSURRECTION, and PERCEPTION.  I’ll be scratching that particular itch very soon.

I adored Caine Grennard.  He is just the perfect tortured hero.  He may have his issues, but when it comes to the woman he loves, he is willing to sacrifice anything for her health and happiness.  He’d even give up his chance to be with her if it meant she would be better off.  Misguided, I know, but an admirable sentiment, nonetheless. 

Emma is a delight.  She starts the story out a bit repressed and shy, but finds her footing as the story progresses and soon evolves into a strong woman with the gumption to do whatever it takes to protect those she loves.

Parallel to the romance in REVELATION is the ongoing battle between enemy paranormal groups in this world.  As this plot unwinds, we discover that Emma plays a larger part in this plot than she could ever have suspected.

REVELATION is big on both romance and suspense.  With a host of paranormal creatures that will make any fan of the genre happy, we enjoy an intriguing cast of characters that are bound to keep readers coming back for more stories in this fascinating series.
