My name is Liam, and I was an FBI agent, until I stepped into the world of Rylee Adamson. Now, I’m a Guardian, a wolf shifter whose very design is to protect those around him at any cost.

The battle against Orion is done, the demons banished. In their wake, there are so many innocents who have lost their lives, their families, and their way.

Three of them our now ours to raise—the ogre triplets. Three boys I’ve come to love as if they were my own. And they are dying.

In a race against time, I must do the impossible. Find a female ogre willing to help us save the boys. A female from a species we had believed was wiped out.

There is one reclusive tribe left—but they aren’t sharing anything but death.

If I am to save my boys, I must face them down; and this time I must look inside myself and find a strength I did not know was possible, without Rylee at my side. If I fail, I fail not only my boys.

I may fail the world.

LIAM had a pretty big storyline and with a good amount of pages, we got ample amount of information about the race to save the ogre triplets. I was skeptical that I would like being in someone else's head but Rylee's during such a big time, but I ended up enjoying Liam's side of things.

Liam has been through a lot through the Rylee Adamson series and all his emotions and fears come out in LIAM that show that he isn't completely unaffected by all he has been through. On top of trying to save the babies and battling his own demons we also get to meet new characters, one who ends up joining the family Liam and Rylee have put together.

I hate to admit it, but I was left super annoyed with the ending of LIAM and I'm not quite sure how I am going to get through the next epilogue. You would think that Pamela would have learned her lesson about going off with strangers that seem to good to be true, but it's clear she hasn't and I can already imagine the trouble that it will cause to others in both this series and the Elemental series. Sigh. We all know I will read epilogue three, but my goodness I hope it isn't as bad as I'm imagining.

I gave it 4/5 stars
