CalyDo you dream of ridiculously hot men? Okay, maybe you do. (And yes, I'm well aware I should lay off the romance books before bed.) But do you actually ever meet those men you dream about in real life? I didn't think so. That's probably a good thing though because I have... And these men from my dreams have done nothing but pull the rug of reality out from under me... which was how I fell and ended up in a world that I thought only existed in romance books.

My name is Caly (AKA Callie) and I'm just an ordinary single woman living the LA dream... paycheck to paycheck. Except whose dream is it? I'm not really sure... but it's not my dream. Especially because I have really weird dreams... like really weird. Then again, everyone has weird dreams, right?

BlakeI am an alpha wolf shifter and leader of Orion's Order, a pack of... well, not wolves. We're an unconventional pack of highly skilled specian hunters that do one thing: hunt the evil in our world. And we were hired by SILE (Species Investigative Law Enforcement) to hunt a bloodthirsty criminal who is infamously untraceable. That was until an irresistible female brought an unexpected twist to our hunt and set things in motion... a motion that has left my pack and our world forever changed.
Welcome to The Order and a secret world of magic and mystery, where a pack of unlikely friends find love and fight against an ancient evil force.

Devour this addictive series at your own risk…+ Happily Ever After+ Steamy Paranormal Shifter Romance+ Multiple POV+ Mature Content----------------------------------------------

NA Review My Thoughts

Calypso’s Heart  is the first book in the adult paranormal romance Orion’s Order series by M.C. Solaris. This book was huge! It clocks in at over 650 pages, and though I did really enjoy the book and am certainly interested in continuing on in the series, it did feel a bit long at times. I had to put this book down a couple of times to take a break from the characters and the story, read something else and then I was ready to get back into Calypso’s heart, which is a bit unusual for me. Normally I like to read books straight through. (in one sitting if I can manage it.) That being said, I did end up enjoying this story and I do love a good paranormal romance, heavy on the steam, which Calypso’s Heart really does deliver!

In Calypso’s Heart we meet our main characters Caly and Blake. The book is told in a multiple point of view narrative, which is my favorite narration style. Blake is a very coveted wolf shifter, and when he meets Caly. There is insta love because of the whole fated mates element, which is something I enjoy so it didn’t bother me in the slightest, but I did want to warn you if that is off putting to you as a reader. I loved all the of various characters we meet in Calypso’s Heart, and I like how big the world felt. There is a lot going on with all of the different creatures and because of that the plot was pretty interesting.

At times, I felt like the pacing of the story was a bit slow and at times, a little disorienting. Because of the multiple points of views and some jumping from character to character and from plot line to plot-line, I did have a hard time keeping tracking of the characters/povs. And as I mentioned earlier, the book felt a little long to me. There were a few repetitive scenes that I felt could have been cut, but overall I really enjoyed the plotline of the book.

I can’t wait to see how the characters grow and develop in the series. I think there are a lot of opportunities for some of the less mature characters to have fantastic character arcs, and I am super interested to find out what is going to happen next. Overall, this was a solid start to the Orion’s Order series. I am interested to see where the books will go from here.

    Thanks for the insightful review. As others have mentioned, the cover really looks nice. Paranormal romance isn’t normally up my alley so I’m not sure I’ll be checking this one out.
