This title was previously published and is being rereleased by the author. It has not been revised.

Meeting your soulmate? Great. Preventing your possible murder? Even better.

Alice Clark, a Wyr and schoolteacher, has had two friends murdered in as many days, and she’s just stumbled upon the body of a third. She arrives at the scene only minutes before Gideon Riehl, a detective in the Wyr Division of Violent Crime—and, as Alice inconveniently recognizes at first sight, her mate.

But the intense connection Riehl and Alice feel is further complicated when the murders are linked to a serial killer who last struck seven years ago, killing seven people in seven days. They have just one night before the killer strikes again.

And every sign points to Alice as the next victim.


True Colors is #3.5 in the Elder Races series.

I’ve previously read True Colors when it first came out on 2011. It has been republished with a new cover, but the content is still the same.

I really like the Elder Races series and anything that is published I devour with great relish.

Ms. Harrsion has created a fun and unique world. With a verity of supernaturals. This novel is short, to the point, and gives you just a taste of what she has created. Their’s danger, romance, and passion. Both characters are likable. It’s an insta-love romance. They both know they are mates and so they hit it off right away. The murder mystery was nice, but wrapped up rather fast and without a big explosion.

I enjoyed this novel, but I wish their was more.

Rated: 3 Stars

  1. Good review Angela! Shared on all my socials!!

    • Thank you Kathy.

  2. Thanks Angela. Do you think a reissued novel should be revised?

    • I really don’t know if a reissued novel/novella should be revised. It depends on why it’s being reissued. For Ms. Harrison the publishing company she used when the novellas first came out, Samhain Publishing closed it’s doors, so to get her novellas out she had to either self publish them or find a publisher to rerelease. As for others who reissue, Yes and No. I’ve found that some needed more work, editing, or something didn’t work, but on others they where great. It comes down to the author and weither they feel they need to revise their work or not. I’m not a big fan of several different editions of a book. I can understand a publishing company closing doors and the only way the author can get their book out is to reissue with someone else or do it themselves, but those that have the same company, but multiple covers/editions, well it gets confusing. I would prefer an author take the time they need to get it right the first time around.

  3. I have book 1 and 2… one day I’ll have to try them
