Tibo’s Beginning

Title: Tibo’s Beginning
Authors: Stormy Glenn & Lynn Hagen
Publisher: Siren-Bookstrand
ISBN: 1-61926-145-6
Genre: {M/M} Paranormal Series
Rating: 3.5 Nymphs
Literary Nymphs Reviewer: Dragon Minx 

At an early age Tibo suffered a heart attack and was brought back to life by paramedics. It gave him a new appreciation for life and made him realize how much he cared for his hunky boss, Sal. When their lives are threatened because of their friends and they have to flee the city, Tibo’s scared but willing to go with Sal. He’s more thrilled to learn Sal cares for him but not too happy to learn he’s a phoenix, like Collin and Kyle. 

Danger is everywhere. They don’t know who to trust and then Sal turns into a creature from folklore; Tibo’s forced to give his faith and loyalty to his new lover. But can Sal keep Tibo safe from the dark forces hunting them? Can Tibo save Sal when he’s shot? Will they find a safe place to hide and make a future together? 

Tibo’s Beginning is release number three in the paranormal series Phoenix Rising. Due to the overlapping of plot and characters, the books should be read in order. 

It’s another entertaining read, with a good mixture of dark moments while trying to survive, and lighter ones in which they have fun, bantering conversation and sizzling hot sex. This one’s a bit different in that Tibo doesn’t die during the story but experiences his death previously from a bad heart. Sal’s an interesting guy, who obviously cares for Tibo, and the twist about his physical transformation is totally unexpected. 

Then there’s Glade and his cohorts. There’s lots about these guys that’s remains a mystery, despite some explanations. That’s one thing about this group I’ve found annoying, so I was glad some information’s finally been forthcoming about them. I also wish Tibo’s small size wasn’t mentioned so often. Adding new characters Mica and Percival with his aging family home, was nice touch. The details of the bayou are vividly described setting up the series for future releases.
