Into the Mist By Maya Banks

Samhain Publishing Feb 2008

One woman’s mission to bring down a sexy elemental shifter turns into a battle of wills…and hearts.

Falcon Mercenary Group, Book 1

Hostage recovery specialist Eli Chance has a secret. He was born a shifter. A freak of nature.

While on a mission, Eli’s men and their mercenary guide are exposed to a powerful chemical agent, and suddenly his secret has become easier to hide. Now he’s not the only one with the gift. But for his men, this “gift” is becoming more and more of a curse.

Tyana Berezovsky’s brother Damiano was the guide for Eli’s team and was the worst affected by the chemical. As he grows increasingly unstable, Tyana fears she’s going to lose him to the beast he is becoming.

Tyana will do whatever it takes to help him, even if it means using her body to go after the one man she thinks holds all the blame—and possibly the cure. Eli Chance.


I will admit it. I’m a geek. I love stories that make me think and I love romance. There is something about Maya’s writing that sucks me in every time and makes not only my body heat but my mind race.

Into the Mist has it all. Suspense. Shifters. Sweaty bodies… in all the right ways. I read through this story growing more and more intrigued by the characters and the whole of the world that Maya has built. While the story stands alone I was so fascinated that when it was done I still wanted more.

I think that’s the sign of a really good book!

Eli and Tyana have a wonderful chemistry, going from flirty conversation, rough and tumble fighting to hot sex to in a believable and enjoyable manner. Tyana is no wilting flower that needs rescuing and Eli has secrets within secrets that drive you to the very end needing to know more.

I’m so pleased to see that tomorrow marks the arrival of the second book in this series, Into the Lair. I will be there, first in line, to get more of this fascinating world and sexy read.
