Review: Jericho Junction (Mark of Lycos #3) by Marie Harte

Book 3 in the Mark of Lycos series

A cat, a demon and a bear. Oh my.

Jericho Dark Walker is a Bear, born to shift into both an animal’s and man’s form. He’s second in command to the mixed group of shifters living in the Great Forest. For years it had been his dream to see his clan reintroduced to the land of their ancestors. But now that he’s back he finds himself restless, unable to find joy in even the simplest back scratch or hive of honey. The female shifters offer little challenge, more than eager to bed the Great Clan’s beta, and with everyone getting along, there’s little more for him to do than break up the rare fight.

When an opportunity arrives to represent the clan and work with the athmae to oust an evil plaguing the outer edge of the Great Forest, he gratefully volunteers. The alpha’s brother has mated with an athmae—a demon—so Jericho thinks he knows what to expect. But his new partner is anything but typical. The athmae assigned to work with him is a male demon as large as Jericho, and just as deadly. No sex demon, but a hunter with the instincts of a true predator. So why is Jericho so taken with the male, when he has only ever felt desire for a female?

And why, when they rescue an annoying, sexy cat shifter from certain death, do his instincts scream at him to claim both the feline female and the demon as his own? Bears don’t mate outside their species, yet everything inside Jericho pushes him to do just that. A cat, a demon and a bear. Oh my.

This new peace that the Great Clan is experiencing is making Jericho restless. He would like nothing more than to start fights and satisfy his lust. Too bad the clan’s females no longer hold interest and everybody is all too happy. It is just his unfortunate luck that evil comes knocking at the clan’s door and he sets on a mission to stop it. He just never realized he would meet up with mates he did not ask for on the way.

This is the third book in the Mark of Lycos series and it has gotten even better. Jericho was pretty much the only character I was really liked in the first novella, Enemy Red. I was excited when I realized that he was getting his own book and I was not let down with his mates. He is reluctant when he first meets Seino, an anthmae or Kin, basically a demon. He has never met anyone to meet him strength for strength. He is confused about his feelings toward the demon and forms a bond with him that makes this alpha want to submit.

Anya is battling against the sorceress that has been wreaking havoc when Jericho and Seino teleport in the midst of it. She runs at first but feels in undeniable connection to the warriors. It is then that she sees them as her mates and that will form an unstoppable triad. Jericho cannot believe that he is part of a triad and that he is more than bear. Seino and Anya teach him that their love will break all barriers.

This was a great addition to the series and if it is the last book it rounded it all very nicely. The characters complimented each other nicely by providing strength when there was weakness. I loved how Seino pushed Jericho into accepting that his submission was cherished and needed, whereas Anya balanced out Jericho’s need for control. However, Seino did not like Jericho take control in battle let alone in the bedroom (or should I say forest) which bugged because Jericho is a great warrior and a great asset to Seino. Otherwise, awesome novella! Should be read as a series as it will enhance the story!

I was gifted a copy of this novella from the JeepDiva in exchange for an honest review. The opinions and ratings are my own.
