For the past few years, Reese has hidden away in his home, refusing to venture out where he might have to face what reminds him of all that he’s lost. When Ashton, a human thief, breaks into his home one night, he doesn’t have a choice but to face the harsh truths of the world he’s turned his back on. He knows he supports the society monsters of myth and lore built upon the backs of humans through his silence, but the new leaders don’t tolerate sympathizers.
If a werewolf can’t act against the status quo without facing severe consequences, a human with Ashton’s cunning and experience circumventing supernatural predators certainly can’t risk drawing their attention. Their chance encounter leaves them both shaken and questioning whether they are living life as they were intended—or if surviving is really living at all.

The Ripples in the Status Quo works are set within a world where supernatural beings seized control from humans and relegated them to the bottom of the food chain. Used for food, entertainment, and worse, nothing protects them from the hands of those who claim them as slaves. But not everyone adheres to the status quo the world at large has accepted…
Please note that the RISQ world has little place for humanity–and the author’s idea of romance may not match yours. As such, there are no guarantees of happily ever afters, and content may be offensive to some readers.
When I think of the world being taken over by paranormals I never have pictured it quite the way it is in this story. To say this view is unique is an understatement. It really does make end of the world survivalist look tame. A scary future indeed. That a true love can be found under such bleak circumstances truly is amazing.
This is the second book in this series, and they can be read as stand-alone books. So far the characters have not carried over, yet the groups involved have. A truly unique and intriguing series. Not for a person looking for light fun reading, however I still find it to be enjoyable and a well written story.
