Detective Fallon Roxbury is now a special police consultant after his last murder investigation left him deaf in one ear. It was also during that investigation that Fallon met his lover, a shapeshifter called Sundown. Fallon and Sundown join forces again to bring down a cold case serial killer.

Beneath Dark Stars is the sequel to The Back Stairs. The well written plot reveals more of Sundown’s secrets as well as solving murders that have a religious implication. The characters are believable. The intimate scenes are sensual. Fallon is a hard working detective, who receives personal satisfaction from busting the bad guys. However, the long hours have taken its toll on Fallon’s health. Fallon has a protective nature. He is constantly concerned about keeping Sundown safe.

Sundown is a mischief maker; he enjoys playing pranks on Fallon’s police partner, Juny. He is a caregiver as well, bonding with a human male is all Sundown ever wanted. Sundown knows he can trust Fallon with his secrets, as well as reveal his true nature. Fallon and Sundown have a strong loving relationship. They also work in concert deciphering crimes; Sundown’s talents enhance Fallon’s ability to fit the puzzle pieces together to find the perpetrators. Beneath Dark Stars has intrigue, as well as a dash of humor. KC Kendricks has created an impressive story that I enjoyed immensely.
