Bite This / Never Forsaken / Under My Heel

Michael Anderle - 2016
    (Kneel Or Die - TKG 07 Review) What you know about Vampires and Werewolves is wrong. So Very, Very Wrong! Continue to adventures of one of Amazon's best loved series... Reviewer MistyDawn: "I'm surprised. I thought when I read the first book in this series, that it couldn't get better.... I was wrong. I read almost continuously, and for the past year and a half, I haven't read a series (or even one) book that I've loved as much. With such loyal characters, friendship, and badassery... just don't wait to start reading these. So just, just wow." **Please note, as mentioned in a review, there is flagrantly foul language in these novels. The main character does not have a problem with cussing, just uninspired cussing.
