Title: The Maw of Mayhem

Author: AK Nevermore

Genre: Dark Paranormal Fantasy, MC/Biker Shifter


Book Blurb:


Grimdarke James has got problems. As Vice Prez of the Maw of Mayhem MC, he needs to keep his shit together, but between the constant threat of his inner cat going feral, and Nikki, one of the motorcycle club’s mollys, blackmailing him, it’s a fine line some days.


When an arms deal goes bad, everything goes to hell with it. All fingers point to an old club enemy, a man Grim has reason to both fear and loathe, but the facts don’t add up, and everyone is a suspect… including Grim. Faced with the constant threat of Nikki revealing his past and his need to prove himself to the MC, the fragile peace he’s made with his cat is threatened.


Out of options and running out of time, Grim sets a bold plan into motion, and the consequences are far more dire than he could have imagined…



My Review:


Grimdarke knows he’s on thin ice but an enemy rips his world apart and the only thing left to do is unleash vengeance. The Maw of Mayhem is a gritty shifter motorcycle club novella that fed my dark side. Don’t judge me, but my weakness is reading biker novels. I love the down and dirty details of life in a motorcycle club. I love the brotherhood vibe. In The Maw of Mayhem, AK Nevermore brings all I love about MC fiction and kicks it up a notch by adding shifters to the mix. Squee! Once I started reading, I couldn’t put it down.


Let’s talk about the characters. Grimdarke is the ‘hero’ of this story but he’s a very morally grey antihero. He’s barely holding on and is a fraction of an inch from his cat turning feral. He’s the VP but not many bikers trust him. He’s loyal to the MC and that makes him a great character in my view. I loved delving into the underbelly with him.


The rest of the characters are well-written and add intrigue, drama, plus plenty of shifting to the overall story. The mollys and old ladies are fascinating to read. Skank Nikki, as I call her, is a despicable character who I wanted to spit on. Seriously. I got invested in all the characters and that is thanks to the writing.


The world-building is flawless. She creates a world never seen before, and its intricacies and layers of detail are brilliantly executed. I got sucked in right away and stayed in this world until the last page.


If you’re looking for a dark paranormal fantasy featuring shifter bikers, you’ll soon be addicted to this series, like me. I can’t wait for the next book in the series.


My Rating: 5+ stars
