Title: Breath of the Feathered Serpent
Publisher: Fireborn Publishing
Adam’s mission is to investigate the theft of an Aztec statue, but he falls for a suspect. Is Elijah innocent or a deadly thief?
When the theft of an Aztec statue threatens to destabilize the provinces on the Texas border, Federal Marshals Adam and Madison are called in to go undercover and investigate. The last thing Adam expects is to be attracted to a young man from one of the ranches they are investigating. With time running out, Adam must face his growing love for Elijah while keeping his true identity a secret and locating the Breath of the Feathered Serpent. But he and Madison are facing a thief as deadly as he is elusive and a statue with powers of its own.
I have not read many books by Pelaam; however Breath of the Feathered Serpent has made me a fan. The story starts off in a way that will pull the reader in, yet it is done in a way I was not expecting. In fact I had to check a couple of times because I thought I had received the wrong story.
After the first chapter lays down a little history, the story ahead in time and picks up with the introduction of one of the main characters, Adam. Adam is a Federal Marshal and when the Breath of the Feathered Serpent goes missing it’s up to Adam and his partner to find it. The case leads the men to a ranch where everything is not what it seems.
It is there that our second main character is introduced to the readers. Elijah is the owner of one of the ranches Adam and his partner are investigating. Or at least he will be once he reaches twenty-five.
There is an attraction between Adam and Elijah, but with Elijah a possible suspect and Adam undercover as a drifter, forming a relationship is a problem. The two men do find time to be alone together and I like the way Adam cares for the younger man.
For being Federal Marshals, Adam and his partner have a hard time keeping their identities to themselves. Before long the Marshals have formed a group of friends that help them look for the statue. I was a little worried that Elijah would be upset about Adam’s lies, but the younger man was very understanding. There are a few twists and turns in this story, and just when you think you have everything figured out they changes again. This was one of the things I liked about Breath of the Feathered Serpent.
I also liked the way the author wraps up the story. Those who have not tried this author should really give this book a chance. It is one I will be re-reading again in the future.
