"Hacking the Consequences" is the beginning of a new series for Charlie Richards, but it also intertwines into her four other series.
I enjoyed the story very much because of the reappearance of characters from previous books and how they all intertwine to make a great world of shifters, vampires, gargoyles and demons. Cho and Vincentius story just adds to the broader landscape of the world. It was interesting to watch two such different men become mates.
I will read this one over and over because I like Charlie's books and her world building is fabulous. I recommend "Hacking the Consequences" for the entertaining book it is. It can stand alone but I would recommend reading the whole series in order. Charlie thank you again for the great read.
Over fifty years before, Vincentius Goldstein agreed to join the Shifter Council with the express intention of bringing their technology into the future. After all, he’d had fun hacking into it and knew it wasn’t secure. He’s done that, and now finds the almost daily meetings and constant infighting trying his patience. Vincentius prefers the seclusion of his computer room. When he discovers someone hacking into his system, his excitement is stirred for the first time in decades. After figuring out where the hacker is located, Vincentius sends a council investigator after him. To his shock, when the investigator returns with the hacker, a small guinea fowl shifter named Cho, Vincentius recognizes the man as his mate. Even with the mate-pull, Cho fears him. After all, Vincentius had ordered Cho kidnapped and taken away from the safety of his flock mates. Can Vincentius figure out how to win the favor of his captive, or will he lose the best thing to happen to him in over three hundred years?
