Cover Design: Designs by Dana

Treble and the Lost Boys Series

Book #1 - Ice On Fire - Amazon US | Amazon UK

Ryley Skye can't take anything seriously. Not the murder scenes he investigates, nor the fact that he's cheating on his boyfriend. Not the bloody nightmares he gets every other night, and especially not Vic's ridiculous theory that Ryley might be a mage.

Magic? Him? There's just no way.

When Vic decides he's had enough of Ryley's cheating and breaks things off, it couldn't come at a worse time. They've just been handed a case that will require them to work closely together, whether they like it or not. But Ryley plays along. He has to. He can't afford any kind of confrontation. Things happen when he gets angry or aroused. Weird things. Bad things. He has to stay bottled up and in control at all times.

Then he meets Asher Arden, and indulges in what he thinks is a little rebound fling. But when Ryley loses control and puts Asher's life at risk, he realizes two things: He loves Asher more than anything else in the world…

And Vic just might have been right all along.

(Note: This story takes place in a fictional world, the same as in the Shifting Isles Series. There are multiple gods, different names for the days of the week, etc. A glossary is included.)

4 out of 5 (very good)

Heavens Aground is the second book in the Treble and the Lost Boys series, and it is Ryley's turn. We met Ryley in book one, and although he was (and is) cheating on Vic, there is still something about him. Of course, he's also a big pain in the posterior, but as you learn more about his story, SOME of his behaviour becomes almost reasonable. The one thing I haven't liked about him was his constant cheating, but I am pleased to report that does change.

This is an intricate storyline, with hidden memories holding Ryley back. However, although hints are given throughout the book, you never quite know for sure until it is laid out for you. Along with Ryley, you have two very strong characters in Vic and Asher. Vic, of course, played a part in book one, but Asher is new to this book. He is the perfect foil for Ryley, even if he is very laid back!!!

All in all, I loved how this story was told, and I honestly can't wait for book 3 - Vic's story. I want to know what's going on with Cam, and can't remember if it went into detail in book 1, so I may just have to re-read to see ;)

With no editing or grammatical errors that disrupted my reading, this book was brilliantly written, with a strong character base and equally strong world building. There is no second book dip with this one, and I highly recommend it.
