Ferris’ day isn’t going well and all he wants is a little time to himself.  Heading over to the vineyard to mow the yard, the last thing he expects is to find Rylan, his mate.  When Ferris takes Rylan home so they can talk, he’s even more shocked to find out that the large fae warrior standing on his front porch is his mate as well.

Ferris Braden is the sixth book in the Beyond the Marius Brothers series.  While the readers may think that this story is centered primarily on Ferris, due to the title, the story is actually evenly divided between the three men that make up this triad.  Ferris is one of the vampire warriors assigned to the East Coast coven.  He has a hard time saying no to anyone, which eventually causes him to feel like everyone is taking him for granted.  His new mate, Rylan, is a Margay shifter.  Rylan has a surprise for his new mates and I could not help chuckling when Ferris and Onah find out.  Onah is a warrior as well, but for the fae.  He’s just returned from a mission when his Queen sends him out again.  He’s surprised to find his mates showing up.  There is, of course, an instant attraction between the three, and I liked that there was no jealously or uncertainty between them.   Regardless of how fast, and much, Rylan, Ferris and Onah feel for each other, things are not always easy.  There are many changes that occur in their lives but the feelings they have for each other only grow stronger.

There are many secondary characters, some old, some new, which help move the story along.  There is no final solution to the problems introduced in this story.

Readers may want to keep in mind that this story is written in first person point of view from the point of all three men.  While this is one of many in the series, and I would recommend reading all of them, Ferris Braden can be read as a stand-alone.
