The fates have matched an unlikely pair as mates; rattlesnake shifter Sheriff Tobias Goldstein and golden eagle shifter Angel. Their destiny is to safeguard one of the four ancient scrolls scattered centuries ago to prevent earth’s destruction.

The Serpent and the Angel is the eighth book in The Shifters series. In this episode, the reader gains a little more insight into the shifter’s original enemy, along with the importance of the scrolls to him. The setting is Colorado 1866. Mining coal is the small town’s main source of income. Typical of any place in America, there are a few bigots and law breakers.

Tobias has zero tolerance for racist people, as well as anyone too lazy to work. He has a one warning rule; a second infraction would get the person killed. Tobias was devoid of human emotions until he mated with Angel. It was Angel who taught Tobias what love felt like.

Angel is the guardian of the scroll; this duty was passed down to him from his father. Because of his mission, Angel was always on the move, never staying in one place too long and never using the same name. In nature, the eagle kills snakes, but Angel accepts as true that destiny is not always clear to the human understanding. Nevertheless, Angel and Tobias have skills that are a benefit to each other.  

M.D. Grimm’s The Serpent and the Angel is an exciting and exceptionally enjoyable action packed addition to this series.
