The Beginning by Vicktor Alexander


 Ronny Parker has always been aware that there was more to life outside of his Harlem apartment. When he goes to work one morning at Starbucks, he finds himself coming face to face with a reality that he was not prepared for. He finds himself the eyewitness to a fight between two shifters, a wolf and a lion, one of which bites Ronny and calls him “mate.” When Ronny wakes up the next morning he finds himself thrust into a world neither his family, nor his teachers ever taught him about and he does the only thing he can do. He starts to investigate.Cole Tronk has been taught from an early age that he is never to mate a human, never reveal his true nature to a human and that he cannot be gay. But when he gets into a fight with his oldest friend outside of a Starbucks and  finds himself smelling the most intoxicating scent ever, he throws all of those rules out of the window. Before long, Cole and his mate, Ronny are on the run from the governing body of the paranormals, humans who have now discovered that paranormals, magicks and supernaturals exist, and someone from Ronny’s past who is determined to kill them both.

Along the way, Cole and Ronny meet up with a group of paranormals, magicks, and supernaturals who are also gay, and who are researching the true history of the world and creation. What they find will not only change their lives, but the entire world and the future. Will Ronny and Cole’s mating survive all of these obstacles and when a millennias old lie comes back to bite them in the ass, will Ronny and Cole be able to deal with the consequences?

This is the first book in Vicktor Alexander’s new Sons of Adam Series.  As with all of Mr. Alexander’s books the main characters Ronny and Cole are very relatable and their story and romance is believable. This book has a little bit of something for everyone there are shifters, elves, witches, vampires and those good ‘ol humans. While this book concentrates on the love between a lion shifter (Cole) and a human (Ronny) I think other books in the series may showcase some of the other species mentioned. Can’t wait for that!But for me I think the best part of this book is the premise that our version of the Bible is incomplete and misquoted. This is so interesting and allows us to examine our views on religion and our world in such a unique way.

I want to thank Mr. Alexander for helping me to both examine the human condition in a new way and learn more about myself through his writing. Love his writing style and I can’t wait for the next book in the series.
