VS The "story" in 'Stygian's Honor' is part of an arc that's been dragging on over too many several books and this one picks up pretty much immediately where 'Lawe's Justice' left off. The key to unlocking the secrets to Amber's condition lies with the mysterious Liza Johnson, who also happens to be the mate to Wolf Breed Enforcer Stygian Black.
How Liza fits into the plot is pretty freakin' obvious right from the get-go hint: And then it was like Ms. The sad thing is, for all I was rolling my eyes throughout this one I can't even say this was my last 'Breeds'. It's Book 27 people!! These are not just random words, they are Breeds and they deserve HEA's! Leigh or whoever the power that be can you please get a move on with one of their stories? I realize Gideon's Fawn or whatever is next grumble grumble but please, for the love of all that's holy, after that maybe we could be treated to one of their stories?
I vote for DOG!
"Stygian's Honor," Lora Leigh
View all 18 comments. Jul 15, Lillie rated it it was ok Shelves: From there, it is a typical Breed book. All suspense is lost at that point. The developing relationship between Stygian and Liza was mildly interesting and held my attention for parts of the book. In the end, I believed in their romance. The rest of the book I was either meh about or irritated with. I felt the Navajo plot was overcomplicated and dragged the story down. I started to hate Jonas and Rachel a little more.
There is also a tiny side story involving Dog that left me confused. I have no idea what it meant, what it was supposed to add to the story, or how it fit the personality of the Breed we have known for many books now. After 20 spurts in 10 pages, I lost count. Wear your wet weather gear for this one.

If one of the kids has survived, then little Amber can survive as well. Stygian Black and his assistant Liza Johnson have the mission to discover Honor. Liza is a mystery to say the least and a very strong heroine. She stands strongly next to Stygian. At some point she discovers that her memories are not her own. Only the Navajo Nation knows the truth to her identity. At the same time, mating heat has started developing between Stygian and Liza. Liza refuses to acknowledge the Breed mating heat, but Stygian is a very patient wolf.
Dog is also making an interesting appearance and it seems that he needs his own book. Obviously this book is not a standalone. View all 16 comments. Dec 22, MelissaB rated it liked it Shelves: This book was just another frustrating mediocre addition to a previously good series. I am so so tired of the Breeds being on the Navaho reservation and the focus of the story staying on finding the four missing people, it's been the same for a couple of books so wrap it up already! I hate the way the author is using a little girl sick and in pain as an endless plot device.
The actual leads were ok but these recent books are all over the place with the story focus and don't seem to make sense. Do This book was just another frustrating mediocre addition to a previously good series. Don't get me started on the "big reveal" about Honor and Fawn, that is so unbelievable and dumb. The love scenes are full of overwrought wordings describing the mechanics of stuffing a big dong into a dripping honey cave with the help of the special man juice.
Then at the end there was random butt secks out of nowhere to end the story, yeah no need to really address the seemingly big revelation for the heroine, lets just have butt secks instead to send off the story. I didn't hate the story, it could just be so much better. The plot needs to focus on the leads and make more sense. Please stop with this endless storyline and for the love of God give us stories on Breeds we know and care about. View all 11 comments. Aug 12, P. Lupton rated it it was ok. I hate to rate a book in one of my favorite series so low, but this was a huge disappointment.
Out of all the Breeds books, this is the one I least enjoyed. I think the story is just dragging on way too long now. I felt like the characters are talking in circles, repeating the same things I hate to rate a book in one of my favorite series so low, but this was a huge disappointment. I felt like the characters are talking in circles, repeating the same things over and over.
The plot could have been resolved in one chapter but stretched to fill the word count—and ultimately finished unresolved. She was so obnoxious. Arguing for the sake of arguing. And yet, I will probably keep reading. The problem is I want to know how it ends now; I have 27 books invested into the series. I am just hoping she wraps it up already. It would be nice to see this story resolved and then move onto something new. This review was posted Under the Covers I have to be honest here I read the book, I sat and thought about it.
Then I walked away from writing this review for a couple of days because I wanted all my feelings to fall back and settle down and here's how I feel now. When you run a series for 27 books you have to know that what keeps readers interested is not JUST reading about yet another couple in the world they've grown to love.
There has to be more. Then on second thought I guess there was a good story, actually maybe even a better plot than in the previous book. I really haven't had the chance to care one way or another about Stygian. He's the typical overprotective breed and quite frankly, I've read that before. There was nothing that really stood out about him amongst a sea of other breeds. Well, maybe except for the fact that he's awesome at dirty talk. Then there's the heroine, who actually annoyed me to pieces for most of the book.
Then her back story comes along and yes, maybe she stops being so whiny, and she's tolerable. But again, her character is not all that memorable, even though there is a crazy twist at the end which I'm hoping will set a different tone and new adventures for the future of the series. OK ok ok it was interesting. And I may be the only one that feels this way but I am actually getting tired of the "save Jonas' daughter" plot. I think it's being dragged and I wish there was a resolution for it already.

I need something to finally happen so that we can move on to something else. What ever happened to I find the choice in couples lately to be a bit strange. We are getting books about breeds we've barely even heard of when we are still missing important stories, like Dr. At this point, I don't think Cassie can possibly be too young still, right? I love Cassie, don't get me wrong.
Stygian's Honor: The Breeds, Book 27 (Unabridged)
But I find it so unrealistic when every time her character is needed in a book for some random breed that she has this special bond with them, they always have inside jokes and she's just their BFF almost. It happened again with Stygian and somehow it didn't ring true. Seriously, am I the only catching these things? I have a feeling he might be the next book, since it would seem the logical progression of the general story.
And I like him well enough. This wasn't a bad book. It was pretty hot because, well, it's Lora Leigh. I just really need to start seeing some tying up of loose ends, fresh stories and a HEA for the characters I've already come to love without introducing a million new ones. View all 10 comments.

Most if not all of the books are written the same way its like reading the same book with different character names. I had to skip out on a few of the books as they were too repetitive and boring. It was a blessing when i read Dawn's awakening i thought it was one of the best breed books and it started the Cassie saga. After reading that book with Review of the Earlier series I started reading Lora Leighs LL breed series at Styx's storm and because i loved that book i started reading the series.
After reading that book with the whole sniper and the mystery man stalking Cassie i got intrigued. I really thought LL would have continued Cassie's story however she said she would eventually write Cassie's story but she has some maturing to do. That still did not stop her from give us some more info on the cliff hanger in that book. After dawn's awakening the other books were so boring its like she made a leap and fell in the same pattern she had before. This is because she did not continue the most important and intriguing parts of the story.
I still read her books to see what she writes about Cassie in order to build her character and her maturity for her mate. Surprisingly LL does not mention much of Cassie in her other books. Just a few pages her and there which totally have nothing to do with Cassie being mature. LL even hinted that Styx's Storm was a turning point for Cassie but as it was the first book i read in the series i had to read it again to refresh my memory.
Stygian's Honor I dont know what i expected from this book i guess i expected something about Cassie because she is the only reason i am still reading this series. But her cameo was just ordinary. Nothing about building her Character. I liked the first part of the book you know the "chasing" between Stygian and Liza. However when the chasing was over the book went flat. I think LL needs to wrap up Jonas's daughter story and move on. I like the fact that she showed us a little about who dog is.
In addition i think she should develop the story's of the characters that are already in the series and not bring in a new characters and then write a book about the new character.

There is the issue of little Amber, who was a few months old a few weeks ago and now is suddenly 2 years old? Anyway, she's been dying for I don't even know how many books, but it's reached the point where I'm appalled at myself that a child is dying and all I'm thinking is, "I don't care.
It's been going on for too long, it's a convenient plot point, an excuse for the male characters to act like manipulative assholes, an excuse for stripping the female characters of their agency. I'm tired of it! One thing that's been talked about in this book's reviews is that the heroine, Liza, is a much more stronger female character than usual for this series. Admittedly it's been awhile since I read the last one but how weak were those other women if this one is considered strong?
Liza has very little control over her life - what little she has is taken from her by Stygian and her father. As always the lady of the book starts off making her position known: She tells him NO repeatedly. She makes it clear the relationship is not to her advantage, not balanced, not one in which she'll get to keep her independence. Because I'm not feeling it. You know what's sexy? Jan 19, Anna Alexander rated it did not like it.
I've read all of the Breed books, and this may have to be my last. If you've read the past six or seven books in the series, you've already read this book. There was one good thing- I loved Stygian. He was dominate without being pushy and a great hero.
I just wish he had a worthy heroine. I agree with other reviews on this site about Liza and her spastic, all over the place emotions. There is a line between torn and annoying and Liza lived on the annoying side of the fence too often. The story te I've read all of the Breed books, and this may have to be my last. The story telling itself was very jarring with the pacing feeling more like a detailed outline than a finished producted. A lot of characters were tossed introduced from the very beginning. Many I recognized and many more I didn't, but I had the impression I was supposed to.
Point of view was all over the place, lines of dialgoue were interrupted with pages of internalization and there was instances of info dump that required many re-readings of passages to get the scene straight in my head. Because of these reasons, I was never able to get lost in the book and care about any of the characters, which made me so sad because I loved the first books in the series.
Breed Next Door and Megan's Mark made this series an auto buy for me, alas, that is no more. I hope a mircle happens to breathe new life into the series, but one thing that is for certain is I will definately be looking at Goodreads for reviews before I invest any more of me time with the Breeds. Aug 14, Willow Brook rated it it was ok Shelves: Very, very slowly I am moving toward being finished with The Breeds. Although I have given up on Lora Leigh's other series, I loved and still love --my tastes didn't change, her writing did the earlier Breeds books.
Coyote's Mate didn't quite do it for me and then all her books went off the rails with inadequate plotting, insane editing problems and generally subpar writing. All her fans said poor LL, she's had a bad year, her editor should be shot. After several badly written and beyond badly Very, very slowly I am moving toward being finished with The Breeds. After several badly written and beyond badly edited books at full price and now a few years later, I have no sympathy for LL who must have done very well for herself financially due to her loyal readership, of which I used to be one. And I will never forgive her for what she did to Jonas by turning him into such a doormat in his personal life.
But that general rant aside, Stygian's Honor was ok. I am not willing to give up on the storyline I have been reading for years and will no doubt continue to digitally plop down money for in the future. At least the crazed editing problems appear to be resolved. I was often bored with Stygian hated that name and Liza's story. OMG the melodramatics and carrying on were so tedious. LL has always had emotionally disregulated heroines, but the interesting, twisted and often exciting plotting made the over the top drama just part of the fun ride.
And she used to be able to write very tender love scenes that worked. In this book, I often found my mind wandering and most telling of all, I started rereading another book while I was still making my way through this one. If you are a long time Breeds fan, go ahead and read this. I couldn't stop myself, much less anyone else. It isn't horrible and your addiction should lessen a bit with each mediocre book she gives us.
If you are not into the Breeds, seriously do not bother. Jan 29, Elaine rated it it was ok. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I gave the book 2 stars only because I liked the premise of the plot. However I have many issues with this book. Either find the cure or let Amber pass. Yes the women eventually say yes, but it's always no until they use the mating heat on them. The breeds are just Wyatt's whores. He says take them to bed, they do. Even the breeds threaten to kill him because of his constant manipulations.
He wanted a breed to betray his mate, their biggest taboo, in order to get his way. He has no problem risking someone else's life if it furthers his agenda. So many grammatical errors and missing words. Seriously Liza was covering her breasts all through the damn book. Wear something that isn't always showing your hard nips. The sex scenes are the same, the love interests are the same and nothing is ever resolved. Aug 13, Kaniac rated it did not like it Shelves: Stygian's Honor disappointed me.
I didn't expect it to considering I have waited on pins and needles for every previous book to be released. But alas it did. I love the idea of the boogeyman of the breeds to be so consumed with saving his child. Totally get that and love it but I think maybe it has dragged on too long. I also found that in this book as opposed to others everything is repeated way too much and the heroine if you can call her that maybe needs to go through a couple of classes on Stygian's Honor disappointed me.
I also found that in this book as opposed to others everything is repeated way too much and the heroine if you can call her that maybe needs to go through a couple of classes on how not to be so argumentative. Liza annoyed me to the point I almost quit reading the story but I wanted to see Amber cured and all that good stuff.
Call me Disappointed cause that's what I was. I found I couldn't concentrate on this particular novel and as a result it took me far longer to read than I even thought possible. Lora Leigh has never let me down on a book before but I honestly don't know what went wrong with this addition to the series I love. I will of course continue reading the series but unlike the previous books I will never pick this one up again.
Apr 03, Cristina rated it it was ok. I wanted to like this but unfortunately it felt repetitive just like the others. So sad because I used to love this series. Jul 20, Jennifer beck rated it it was amazing. A classical Breed romance: P , and a complex plot to keep the story up and kicking. I loved the overall plot and the way the good guys both Breeds and Navajo are not that good who wouldn't want to kick Jonas' backside?
Here more than usual, I admit. Liza is right when she declares you can't trust the Breeds and that they have the same goal and at times the same methods of the Council The book lost a star for: I prefer them to know each other first I did warm a bit to the main couple, but I admit the focus of my interest was the ongoing battle with the Council, the Navajo, Gideon to save Amber.
Moreover the big secret was clear from the start, so you don't really get why everybody is dancing to that tune I simply can't believe that Berkley can't pay for a damn editor. It wasn't last year debacle they missed 10 pages from both the print and e-book. BTW, never replaced the editions They might have been few I noticed a bunch only , but damn if I'm not fed up to pay 8 bucks to have the same problems of a self-pub book.
After 20 plus books in this series, how does an author infuse excitement back in? By adding new twists! In Stygian's Honor, the reader is treated to Native American lore. This was enjoyable and Ms.
Stygian's Honor (Breeds, book 27) by Lora Leigh
Leigh dropped plenty of clues for the ending. Liza Johnson is an admirable female lead. She can kick butt and she doesn't allow people to push her around. Her interaction with her father, uncle and the Breeds is amusing. She fights for every little bit of independence. The requisite mating bond as well After 20 plus books in this series, how does an author infuse excitement back in?
The requisite mating bond as well as the denial of the bond is present as always. The hot smexy sex scenes still steam up the story and are arousing. With this new set of four characters, I'm expecting at least another couple of books.
Leigh will tie up a few story-lines. How will Amber be fixed? What game are the Coyotes playing? When will we finally have Cassie's story? Will this series ever conclude? The one odd thing in the storyline which threw me was the reference to illegal weapons. In this world, apparently guns are illegal in the US. Stygian's mission is to find Honor Roberts, no matter the cost. Now, with the help of Liza Johnson, assistant to the chief of the Navajo Nation, he is closer than ever to his goal. But will the discovery of Honor Roberts mean the destruction of the mating heat that has developed between Stygian and Liza?
I found the whole series a pleasant surprise. I read them in book form and am finding I'm enjoying them as audiobooks. The combination of plot, erotic scenes, great characters, and just the whole concept makes is a pleasure to read. And if you like Shades of Gray you should like this!
