Description

Between his bullying father and dissolute brother, Percival Endicott Whyborne has quite enough problematic family members to deal with. So when his sister returns to Widdershins asking for help solving the mystery of a derelict ship, Whyborne is reluctant to get involved. Until, that is, a brutal murderer strikes, leaving Whyborne and his lover Griffin no choice but to take the case.

The investigation leads them deep into a conspiracy of blackmail, murder, and darkest sorcery. But worst of all are the secrets held within the family itself, one of which will destroy everything Whyborne believed to be true, not only about his family, but about himself.

Awesome series

To get the most from this series start at the beginning. It is beautifully written. It's funny and touching at the same time. The sex scenes are smoking hot. Give it a go. Take a chance!

Great series

The story of W & G continues to evolve. Hawk's universe takes a very interesting turn in Bloodline and while it is a bit darker than the rest, the book is a wonderful addition to the narrative. Enjoyed thoroughly

Another great Jordan Hawk story

I have enjoyed every one of the Whyborne/Griffen books. Great characters. I feel like I know them.

Bloodline

I have been reading/listening to the Layborne and Griffin series one after another. They are hard to put down. The friends and families of the main couple are well developed in the story and interesting too. The action is exciting and the plot has twists and turns. Use your credits to buy the whole set- read them sequentially.

Another adventure!

What a book! On the one hand I truly loved it, on the other, there were parts that I really disliked. Mixed feelings anyone?

Bloodline hit much closer to home compared to the rest of the series have. It all started with an unexpected visit from Whyborne’s sister. A sister he’d never been close with. She asks him for help and to meet her in a seedy part of town. The events taking place changes the Whyborne family forever in the most devastating of ways.

I’ve always been a huge fan of Whyborne’s. The introverted scholar, the shy man who’s love for knowledge and dead languages made him awkward in social situations and honest to a fault. In Bloodline that’s not the case anymore. But almost overnight he’s deceiving his loved ones, lying to them. Not only that, the morals he’s always lived by aren’t as important. In short I did not like this version of Whyborne. Sure, some of it had their reasons and explanations, but it still made me enjoy the book less, at least the first half of the book.

The last part of the book was by far my favourite. I loved every second of that. The revelations, the twists and turns, both the expected ones, and the unexpected ones. And some things truly were unexpected. It was a thrilling rollercoaster and made me salivate for more.

There weren’t as much growing happening in the relationship between Whyborne and Griffin. Well, except for that one thing… There wasn’t much focus on it. It was there for sure, but not the main focus.

I loved the showdowns in the end, it was exhilarating, intense. Heartbreaking. Julian G. Simmons narrated it brilliantly. He really brought it to life to the point where you felt like you were there, experiencing the biting winds, watching the battle with your heart pounding. Hoping that the people you’ve come to love will make it out alive.

So far this is book is my least favourite of the series, but they can’t all be winners. However it did bring some answers as well as some new twists and turns that will be fun to explore more in the books to come.

Favorite in the series, so far!

In this book, plot threads that have been mentioned only as subtext so far finally came to light, and I couldn't be happier! It's wonderful to see the growth in Griffin, Percival, and their relationship, and to learn that what I'd suspected about Percy's family history is, in fact true. (Won't say more, due to spoilers.) What really takes this book to a new level for me is how the notion of what (and who) constitutes a "monster" is finally challenged. No longer can the so-called monsters be seen as safely separate from humanity; they are, in fact, much closer to home than Percival ever imagined. Watching him grow and struggle with this fact - and the question of what to do with power once one has it - has brought so much depth both to his character, and the series as a whole. I'm really excited to see where Jordan L. Hawk will take this wonderful story next. (Also: I love Christine. So much. And the narrator voices her *so* perfectly, it's great!)

Hawk is just getting better with her writing.

This is the fifth installment of the series I have read, and the fifth time the story has just gotten better. Ms. Hawk's writing has gotten tighter, and the reader has gotten much better with intonation and cadence with the book.

The story itself is very interesting, you get to meet additional members of Whyborne's family, including some unexpected members. The struggle against a new threat from a couple of unexpected directions.

Where the last book had a lot to do with Christine and some additional items on Griffin, this focused mostly on Whyborne. I enjoyed every page of it, but I do have to say the series as a whole will do better overall if Ms. Hawk focuses on the the group as the whole. I can't talk about specifics due to spoilers, but I love his mom and I do like how Ms. Hawk has made Whyborne's father more and more three dimensional.

Overall, I definitely recommend it as a read!

Everything is awesome

This series astounds and amazes with each installment. It goes in totally unexpected directions again and again. I’m loving every moment.
I’m often reluctant to listen to stories set in the distant past because of the constructions placed on gay relationships in those time periods. I hate tragic story endings, however none are to be found here. Love prevails.

It Made Me Tear Up

I love the main characters and their journeys through both magic and love. Awesome and unexpected ending. Wish this series had a better narrator. But the fact that I'm still buying the books is a testament to the quality of the tale despite the poor narration.

An amazing story in the series.

With this story, character development and story line all came together beautifully. The narration also helped to make this one special. Thanks for the joy and tears all the way through.
