Grim Misery, the President of the Black Harbinger Motorcycle Club, discovers a wounded warlock and four werepups aboard the club’s LSD shipment. And the news kept getting better and better. Not only is the warlock sitting on the edge of death, he’s illegally bonded to the werepups, which could trigger a war with the werewolves—and he turns out to be Misery’s estranged husband.
Years ago, Griffin turned Misery away to be with another warlock by the name of Marcheso Aldo. Misery left everything behind, even his family, but couldn’t shake the heartbreak Griffin caused. With Griffin thrust back into Misery’s life, he discovers things aren’t as they seem… and everything is about to get much, much worse.
Death Mask is a fantastic start to a new series by Lexi Ander. It mixes many different lore to give us a dynamic and interesting background for her characters; It was a fantastic mix of urban fantasy and mm romance. I loved the idea of the Red Hoods and the nod to Little Red Riding hood. That it is mixed with werewolves, elves, and angels make it that much more interesting.
I was sucked in to the story right away and couldn’t put it down – it’s a good thing it isn’t that long as otherwise my family might not have gotten supper! The length was just right for this story though. I definitely want more in this world – hopefully following Grim, Griffin and the werepups, though I would be happy to read about other members of the MC too.
I really enjoyed seeing things from Grim’s point of view. His internal voice was interesting. I also liked how Lexi handled giving us information that was necessary; she made it showing rather than telling and it didn’t feel like an info dump. There was a little repetition in information that could have been cleaned up, but I felt it was minor in the whole scheme of things.
I loved this story and look forward to the next installment!
