 The third son of the Bear Clan, Hale thought he had his life figured out. He had a stunning bride, his iron faith in the Mother, and has spent the last five years training to be the future clan leader. But when his life comes crashing down around him, Hale knows he can’t stay home.

Leaving behind everyone he’s ever known, Hale is alone with his thoughts as he crosses the Alderwood in search of his sister. Then Gemini—the clan flirt and known gossip—follows him, demanding his protection. She’s just as determined to leave her life behind. Hale doesn’t know what made her leave her sisters or suitor, but he has no choice but to continue with a helpless girl at his side. Neither ever expected just how dangerous the Alderwood could be.

Oblivious of Hale’s departure, Parson and Raene travel to Terrana to ask political favors in exchange for their clan leader’s freedom, but lingering injuries threaten their arrival—and their lives. They’ll need the help of an unlikely ally if they hope to succeed.

 Hale and Gemini by R.S. McCoy (The Alder Tales, #3)

Hale and GeminiHis journey began with a broken heart and broken faith. He was determined to find Blossom, but would he discover what he needed to find was himself? Hale has faced his final heartbreak, but discovers his solo journey of contemplation has been interrupted by Gemini, the aggravating friend of his sister’s. There is something different about the Gemini he sees now, she is stronger, determined and so much more than she was ever given credit for. As they each run from their own demons, they find a companionship and budding trust that could will prove to be more powerful than either could have known. Crossing the Alderwood is dangerous. Highwaymen will do anything to take Gemini for their own purposes, but Hale is there to stand as her protector, even as she reveals a secret she carries and the life she is leaving behind.

Their journey will end in Terrana, but their new lives will truly be just beginning. Family reunions, uncomfortable moments, emotional revelations and the possible freedom of their patriarch from prison, so many changes, so many lives affected, but does the Mother have a plan she has not unveiled? Politics, romance, rivalries and true justice will pepper the tale of HALE AND GEMINI by R.S. McCoy as, one again, she brings the magic of the Alderwood, the Bear Clan and the strength of one family in alignment with the fates and the Mother.

Not a blistering fast read, but one to be savored as each scene brings the fantasy of R.S. McCoy to life.

I received an ARC edition from R.S. McCoy in exchange for my honest review.
