Présentation de l'éditeur

Dangerous Shades, magical portals, sexy elves and a spunky heroine.


Read the complete First Season of the series Boreal and John Grey, books 1-5 (The Encounter, The Gate, The Dragon, The Dream and The Truth) at a special price with an Author's Note at the end.

Centuries ago, they nearly conquered humankind. But their Gate to our world closed, leaving them out. Now the elves have found a way back.

Ella Benson, agent of the Paranormal Bureau, fights the Shades when they cross into our world, keeping everyone safe. But increasingly dangerous creatures are slipping into her city, her work partner has just gone missing, and a mysterious – and, quite frankly, hot — guy saves her life. His name is Finn and, as it turns out, he’s a natural when it comes to fighting the Shades.
When the Gates between the worlds start opening and the elves make a comeback, Ella needs a new, temporary partner. Enlisting the mysterious Finn is a no-brainer, until she realizes he is guarding dangerous secrets of his own.
Together with Finn, and the fate of the world on her shoulders, what’s Ella to do but grab her weapons and figure it all out, one way or another.

Warning for profanity and adult sexual situations.

Enfin un récit où l'on retrouve mêlé de façon intelligente et crédible action, romance et surnaturel. Les amateurs de fantaisie pure, fans de Tolkien retrouvent avec bonheur le monde des Elfes, Trolls, Goblin, une langue à part entière le Norse, et des créatures mythologiques telles que les dragons, des serpents volants aux multiples têtes ou même des loups qui n'en sont pas tout à fait...
S'ajoute à cela la superposition de deux mondes qui s'affrontent dont l'un ressemble furieusement au notre, ce qui fait de ce livre une parfaite fantaisie urbaine qui permet aux plus prosaïques des lecteurs de se passionner tout autant pour l'histoire.
Et bien sur j'ai gardé le meilleur pour la fin, les deux personnages principaux ainsi que les personnages secondaires tous très attachants qui nous rendent cette histoire encore plus addictive. Ella est une femme policière qui fait parti du très secret Bureau d'Investigation du Paranormal, une part de mystère entoure son enfance et elle doit se battre chaque jour contre un monde parallèle qui ne cesse d'ouvrir des "Portes" pour tenter d'envahir son monde. Dans son combat incessant contre des créatures plus létales les unes que les autres elle rencontre l'étrange mais si beau Finn. Mais est-il un ami ou un ennemi? Le danger rode autour de lui sans répit. Ella doit tenter d'éclaircir ses sentiments, retrouver les bribes de son enfance perdue pour tenter de lutter contre la possible destruction de son monde.

HASH(0x970a6204) étoiles sur 5 You HAVE to read this book! 13 septembre 2013
Par The Brainy Bookshelf (Alisha) - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
Oh, man. I was grinning like a loon when I finally finished this book. Where to begin?

1) I liked how the characters' gender roles were reversed. Rarely do I read a Para/FantasyRom book that has an incredibly strong female lead and a not-so-strong male companion. Finn is definitely soft (he cries quite a bit, he sighs and he glares. Think "Edward" from Twilight, but with much more depth and a lot less eyeliner). For the first few pages after his introduction, I had a hard time swallowing it. But as the story grew so did my love for Finn. Towards the end of the book, I was damn near cheering out loud for him.

2) I liked how awesome Ella was. Ella is KICK ASS. (Sorry, no intelligent prose to describe her here.) Seriously. She grits her teeth, takes a punch, all the while making sure her man eats his breakfast and ties his boots correctly. They don't make women like Ella anymore in my opinion. It was so refreshing to see a woman who remained constantly strong and protective the ENTIRE book. I mean, all the way to the last page. Sure, she's feminine, but she's a very protective bear and Finn is her cub. With most strong female leads, they eventually buckle and the man steps in to save them. Ella wasn't having it. And I was totally digging was she was serving. On top of all of that? Thoma found Ella's voice perfectly. All of Ella's dialogue was thoughtfully written and witty in all the right places. Ella = Winning.

3) Have I mentioned how much I liked the characters? Ok, one more time then. On top of writing fabulous main characters, the side characters were all well done. Ella's boss definitely had more to him that met the eye, and Thoma kept me guessing about him to the very end. Then you have Sarah, Simon and Mike (I loved Mike, by the way). Each had enough presence on the pages to successfully draw me in deeper. You can't beat a book that offers a great story line AND a great cast of characters, which leads me to my next point...
4) What a fascinating story of elves, mechanical humans and mythical worlds! Ok, I know you guys are sick of me telling you how much of a geek I am, but for those who don't know, I'm a self-proclaimed Super Geek. I'm talking fantasy books, online games (MMORPG, party of one?), Comicon, the whole works. My husband and I regularly have in depth discussions on characters in the Marvel and DC universe over dinner. So nothing lights my fire like a well thought out fantasy world and Thoma goes above and beyond. From the mythos behind the chaos to the intricately woven back story of our main girl Ella, Boreal and John is obviously written by someone who loves the fantasy genre as much as I do.

Now, yes. The story did drag out a bit in the middle and Finn was so unbelievably stubborn he frustrated me during a few scenes. But the ending was well worth it. I can't WAIT to read the next chapter and I urge all my fantasy and paranormal readers to check this series out.

HASH(0x96f86da4) étoiles sur 5 An excellent read 13 juin 2013
Par Bluevitriol - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
This is a fast moving, action packed, strange creature filled romp of a story. A mix of Norse folklore and a vivid imagination, Ms Thoma has written a multi-layered, intelligent tale that never lets up from the first page to the last. I don't want to talk about the plot too much because I don't want to spoil the story. If you like urban fantasy - you'll like this. If you like paranormal romances - you'll like this.
Ella is a worthy heroine, brave and resourceful with a touch of mystery about her. She works for a paranormal investigative agency and fights off a variety of creatures who come through gates from a parallel world. There are dragons, wolves that aren't really wolves, flying snakes etc - all detailed in such a way that you can imagine them jumping off the page. The action sequences are very well written and exciting.
I'm very impressed with the world building and the cast of characters.I loved the gradual revelation of details about Finn in particular. I did suspect part of the twist but the story was no less enjoyable for it. The romance element is there, but light and sweet. Who couldn't fall for Finn!
There's more to come but the story stands as it is. You're not going to get to the end and go - what, where's the rest, but I'm very pleased there will be more of this world and look forward to reading on.

HASH(0x9702deac) étoiles sur 5 Boreal and John Grey Season 1 3 juillet 2013
Par Cynthia V - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I just finished reading the first season and thoroughly enjoyed it. From the moment I started I could not put this series down but read straight on through. The characters are so wonderfully fleshed out and three dimensional. The choices they make are consistent and true to who they are. Also, Ms. Thoma moves her characters along at a nice pace. For example, her main characters (Ella and Finn) don't suddenly go from not trusting one another to trusting each other in a few pages--she built up the the tension at a perfect pitch for me. I really dislike books where writers create characters who act one way on page 10 and then do an abrupt about-face on page 12.
Another point is that Ella and Finn are such likeable characters...you just can't help rooting for them. And Ella is no weak, indecisive heroine but a take charge, strong willed lady. Something else I appreciate. And Finn, well I don't know how anyone could read the books and not fall in love with him. The books' co-stars are also believable and with the exception of a few not wholly good or evil--but somewhere in between.
(Spoiler Alert: The love scenes are just hot and sexy enough without being pornographic.) Also, there are some four letter words but just a smattering and pretty tame by today's standards.
All in all I loved this series and cannot wait for Season 2. If you love reading about norse mythology, elves, goblins, dragons and other fantastical beings I think you will love this series. Just be warned--you will be drawn into their world and may lose sleep. Thank you Ms. Thoma for such an enjoyable time. You are now on my list of favorire writers.

First thing is, I love this series.
I downloaded to my Kindle and ended up reading the whole thing over the labor day weekend.
I can't wait until season 2 starts up because not only do these characters become real and keep you involved but they stay with you after reading.
Definitely get the box set. You will regret it if you don't after you finish the first one and don't have the next ready :) Also I like the added information by the author at the end of the set as well.
I would love to see this being put into film.
I have found another author to add to my favorites now.
Keep them coming!

HASH(0x9758db94) étoiles sur 5 Boreal and John Grey (Season 1) by Chrystalla Thoma 19 août 2013
Par Caroline - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
Chrystalla Thoma's Boreal and John Grey has become one of my new favourite urban fantasy/paranormal book series. Absolutely hooked from the cover and first pages alone, I could not bear to put this book down (and I had to being the summer hols, spending time with my kids and all)!! There is definitely something for everyone (say 15yrs+) with this magical story of the human world having Gates appear from another world, where it brings Shades, snakes, dragons, dwarves and goblins, not to mention sexy elves! The story itself is complete with action and adventure, mystery and romance.

Ella Benson is an agent for the Paranormal Bureau and we begin the story with Ella investigating a report of an attack by a Shade. She is supposed to be meeting up with her partner, Simon, but when there is no sign of him she is left to tackle the Shades alone. The reader is made aware of the trouble that the Shades have begun to cause within the first few pages, how easily they can attack and the mystery of where Simon is.

The reader is also introduced to the hero of the series, Finn (although the series centres mostly on Ella being the heroine). Whilst having fought the Shades, Simon not showing - Ella is a little confused when she thinks she sees a man fighting off the Shades. Did she bang her head during the fight? Is she hallucinating?

Without Simon, and the Shades appearing more and more, causing trouble all over the city, Ella needs a partner. Who else is there to consider but Finn! He is aware of the situation and he seems to handle himself well in fighting them off, not to mention a little protective of Ella!!! As Finn becomes injured a little later, and with no place to go, Ella takes him in until he can stand on his feet and move into his own place.

The romantic magic is written beautifully as these two characters learn more about the other (Ella more than Finn)! However, doubts and caution come into play when Ella begins to believe that Finn may not be quite who she thought he was. Finn doesn't help the situation as he remains a little grumpy on/off with one word answers but it is Ella's suspicious mind that begins to see a little more into who Finn really is!

Throughout the whole season I did not doubt that Ella was a strong heroine and felt that she could survive anything. And yet I love how Ella still reads as a feminine character with not too much machoism and she has a caring personality where her friends and colleagues are concerned, and Finn!!! There are times, however, when the reader real feels Finn's vulnerable side but even in some grave situations he remains protective to Ella. There are moments when the reader will question Finn's actions, however!

I couldn't help but view Finn's character like that of Eric from `True Blood' (especially the time when Eric cannot remember who he is - he is emotionally vulnerable and yet protective of Sookie). With his pale skin, blue eyes, beautifully set cheek bones plus the fact that he is able to look after himself there are also moments when Finn becomes injured and needs to be nursed by Ella. But even in times of being injured he will defend and protect Ella.

Boreal and John Grey (Complete Season One) consists of five books: The Encounter, The Gate, The Dragon, The Dream and The Truth. One of my favourite aspects of these books is the way in which they are written as `episodes' of a series. I find books written in this manner pack as much action/adventure and story into each book, keeping it very much alive and at the same time the reader gets to know the characters gradually over the whole series. I also find that each subsequent `episode'/book will subtley recap the reader or introduce the new reader to the events of the story, allowing the reader to keep informed with the full plot! Chrystalla Thoma's Boreal and John Grey (The Complete Season One) is no exception to this.

This series offers a great deal of realism from the characters having believable characteristics, including their flaws (i.e. vulnerabilities, confusion of events, mood swings, etc), and the focus on various myths and legends from historical era's worldwide. After reading this series, along with Chrystalla Thoma's bio, the reader can see how imaginative Chrystalla has been in taking modern life, realistic settings with Ella being an investigative agent and then opening up the story that dates back centuries with elves trying to conquer our world after Gates begin to open between their world and ours.

I would like to thank Chrystalla Thoma for inviting us to review her fantastic season of Boreal and John Grey for the purpose of an honest and fair review. Without the review request I may not have come across this 5 star work of fiction. I hope there is another series to come with these brilliant characters, their relationship and how they can save the world.
