Fresh Release #Review – Sunchaser by Beryll & Osiris Brackhaus
Smilodon Pride, Book Two
Genre: Paranormal, Adventure
Roan has pretended to be a human for long enough. He needs to get out of town and roam the land, as any proper werecat should.
The last thing he wants is his conscience insisting he should save an abused werewolf from a traveling circus first. The very last thing he expects is the local sheriff’s daughter having the exact same idea – and beating him to the punch.
Their rescue goes spectacularly wrong, and suddenly Roan, Betsy and their crippled wolf find themselves fleeing across the US for the Mexican border, chased by the police and vengeful circus fey alike.
Sunchaser is a non-romance, road-movie-ish urban fantasy adventure novel about a werecat drifter, a wide-eyed human girl and a defective werewolf learning that sometimes, family really is the ones you didn’t pick.

Sunchaser was a pleasant surprise for me. It’s been so long since I’ve read an engaging adventure that is free of a romantic subplot! This paranormal story of three runaways will keep you on the edge of your seat, hoping Roan, Betsy, and Martin make it out alive. A lone werecat, an emotionally abused human girl, and a damaged werewolf who can’t shift into his human form may sound like an impossible group, but as the story progresses, they end up being a strong, albeit unusual, pride.
Sunchaser follow the characters on their way to breaking free of their past. Martin is running from a life of being caged and beaten into submission. Betsy is running away from a highly controlling fiance and a father who refuses to see how wrong her beau is. Although seeming to just be there to help out the two runaways, even Roan has a past to break free from. A past of loneliness, mistrust, and not caring much about anything but his werecat siblings.
As they make their way from New Mexico to Chihuahua, the three will sleep rough, be forced into a few robberies, and spend their time sleeping and hunting outside. With Martin improving every day after being abused and starved, Betsy surprising everyone with her caring, adaptable, and fighting nature, Roan is slowly discovering what caring for and protecting a pride means. They will all be tested repeatedly and their newly discovered pride is on the verge of being purged from the face of the Earth more often than not.
If you want to know if they make it, I invite you to grab a copy and start reading! As far as I’m concerned, you’d be missing out if you didn’t join these three mismatched creatures in their adventures!
Start your journey with Book One in the Smilodon Pride series:
Connor’s life used to be the dream of any cultured werecat. He spent his days in Paris’ gay quarter with comfortably little real work, playing the piano, surrounded by art, fine food and good friends. Now, a feral vampire preys on the prostitutes of ‘his’ quarter, killing the boys of the Marais one by one.
When Connor invites a newly arrived hooker to stay on his houseboat, the last thing he expects is Michel to be a member of the Brigade Criminelle – a troubled, hunky rookie cop sent undercover to explore Connor’s connection to the murders, picked mostly because he had been a boy of the Marais himself, not so long ago.
Hiding their true natures becomes a problem for both when their initial attraction becomes much more than they ever thought possible. But in order to bring down the serial killer and maybe have a chance at making their relationship work out, one of them will have to take the first, critical leap…
