Posse: The Duoviri ~ Review

Posse: The Duoviri 
by T. Hammond
Publication Date: March 17, 2016
I’ve lived through thousands of years and countless lifetimes. I’ve lead men to war, and been the cause of a few. I am a warrior, mother, widow, and a proxy shapeshifter.

You know my names and heard tales of my bravery, ferocity, passion, and strength, but you don’t know the real stories- after all, history has been written by men who paint the accomplishments of women with a tainted brush.

I have many names; one of them was Boudicca.

As the last of my line, and the strongest of the shapeshifters, I lead a posse of paranormal warriors. I am the Duoviri, the judge, jury, and executioner for our society, the Eximium.

If you turn Rogue, mine will be the last face you see.

This prequel novella tells the backstory of the Duoviri, the supernatural community's sheriff, and her Juris, deputy.

WARNING: The Duoviri is wrapped around true historic events. This novella contains reference to the rape of Boudicca's daughters, a pivotal incident that fueled her anger against the Romans. While not graphic or drawn out in my re-telling, the rape is part of this story and may be a trigger for some readers.

Reading Order:Posse: The Duoviri, prequel novella
Posse: Legends (book 1)
Posse: The Dragon Gods (book 2) Summer 2016
Posse: The Fall of Atlantis (book 3) Winter 2016

A whole lot of awesome!, March 16, 2016
Be prepared to enter a world full of many different paranormals with history galore. We travel back & forth from the present to the past learning all about these supernaturals & their tales. There is suspense, action, emotion, war, heartache, joy, friendship, loyalty, & so much more.
Going back in time was a great way to allow us to see different aspects of these characters lives as we got to know them on a deeper level. Decades change people so you can imagine how centuries would. Their choices & actions made more sense.

This is no surprise to me though. After reading Hammond's other books I knew I was a huge fan of her writing style. Unlike her other series this one is more paranormal & less romance ... so far. I'm looking forward to getting back in their world to see what is to come. There are so many directions this tale could go.

~ T. Hammond ~
lives in Spokane, WA with her goofy, neurotic, long-coat German shepherd, Dexter; he's noble and brave, until someone turns on the microwave, then she has 100lbs of quivering dog trying to hide behind her chair or bury his head under a pillow (Little known fact: a 100lb German Shepherd CAN fit under a coffee table).
T. writes two concurrent versions of the Team Red series for both the Adult and New Adult audiences. Blind Seduction and Color Blind are part of the Blind series - featuring adult-themed erotic romance combined with a humorous paranormal storyline. The Red series featuring Red Rover and Red Zone (release date Aug 23rd) is a funny paranormal romance series with a lighter PG13 type storyline. While both series contain the same character names and a lot of shared dialogue, the Red series is stripped of sexual content and language.
T feels that writing is not a calling so much as it is a compulsion. No one is more surprised than she is when characters take over the plot and dialog, and (re)direct stories in directions she had not (consciously) intended. She is fully convinced that the writer is the tool a story uses to tell its tale. Some tools, of course, are more appropriate for the job than others. Here's hoping, you feel she did her stories proud.
T. has a Bachelor's Degree in Organizational Management from Whitworth University, and a Master's Degree in Organizational Leadership from Gonzaga University and before becoming a writer she was a bookkeeper, technical/manual writer, Call Center Manager and the owner of a freshwater aquarium store, Guppy Tales.
