Son of Lucan
Ranking Officer of the Avian military
And devoted to Junco, no matter what

Tier was left with one specific order and he’s not about to screw it up. He might lose all his allies, his brothers, his shot at defeating the High Order, and his own Eternal Salvation - but he’s willing to risk it all to keep one small girl alive.

Tier reveals his part in the epic tale of The Seven Siblings, spilling secrets and motivations that will leave you breathless and wanting more.

My Review:

OMG, I loved this novella. This cleared up so much of my confusion about what exactly was happening in Range. This book is told entirely from Tier's POV....YES!! Finally, we get to see some of what is going on in Tier's mind, especially after book #4 where there is some doubt cast as to whether he is really a good guy or not. In this book, there is no doubt that Tier loves Junco. YES!

Also, Junco spends so much of the series confused and not knowing who to trust. She's constantly questioning everyone's motives. It was nice to move into the POV of someone who actually knows what's going on and how all the players interact with those events. I really, really wish someone would give Junco a clue...this girl deserves some straightforward answers about what exactly is happening. 

Then there's HOUSE...*sob* This was the most gorgeous story line ever! Junco is not present in this book, but the artificial intelligence of her HOUSE, which is very sentient, has taken the form of an 8 yo Junco. Tier's in charge of taking care of her and seeing him in a fathering role is just breathtaking, especially after the scene and his heartbreak at the beginning of Range (book #4). I absolutely LOVED this part of the story line and I fell in love with this guy all over again. He's an incredible character. I'm ready for him and Junco to have their HEA with lots of little babies....

The final book is out in December... I cannot wait to see how in the world J.A. Huss finishes this all out and answers all of Junco's questions.

I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.
