Calypso’s Heart (Orion’s Order #1) by M.C. Solaris
Publication date: May 15th 2020
Genres: Adult, Paranormal, Romance
If you enjoy Psy-Changeling and Black Dagger Brotherhood, this new series is right up your alley!
Sexy shifters. Hot vampires. Intriguing immortals. Strong heroine. Sizzling romance. Page-turning plot full of emotion and excitement. Modern and fresh take on fated mates.
Do you dream of ridiculously hot men? Okay, maybe you do. (And yes, I’m well aware I should lay off the romance books before bed.) But do you actually ever meet those men you dream about in real life? I didn’t think so. That’s probably a good thing though because I have… And these men from my dreams have done nothing but pull the rug of reality out from under me… which was how I fell and ended up in a world that I thought only existed in romance books.
My name is Caly (AKA Callie) and I’m just an ordinary single woman living the LA dream… paycheck to paycheck. Except whose dream is it? I’m not really sure… but it’s not my dream. Especially because I have really weird dreams… like really weird. Then again, everyone has weird dreams, right?
I am an alpha wolf shifter and leader of Orion’s Order, a pack of… well, not wolves. We’re an unconventional pack of highly skilled specian hunters that do one thing: hunt the evil in our world. And we were hired by SILE (Species Investigative Law Enforcement) to hunt a bloodthirsty criminal who is infamously untraceable. That was until an irresistible female brought an unexpected twist to our hunt and set things in motion… a motion that has left my pack and our world forever changed.
Welcome to The Order and a secret world of magic and mystery, where a pack of unlikely friends find love and fight against an ancient evil force.
Devour this addictive series at your own risk…

Yes, I was slightly disappointed that this wasn’t an RH book only because all of the guys (even the “cold hearted” Nico) have great personalities, and it would have added more drama to the story. But, in the end everything worked out, and Blake is the best person for Caly in the sense of what she needed in a relationship!
Caly follows the typical human finds out about the supernatural world and that there is more to her upcoming and life than she thought.
Let me tell y’all Caly goes through a lot through out the book and it really test her limits (along with everyone else), but we are able to see her strength as a person and the growth as the events occur.
Caly finds out the she is a dream traveler and is also able to produce a protection shield of sorts.
And Blake is just one big swoon! I’m a suck for anything that has to do with werewolves, and if I’m being honest, that was the main reason why I wanted to read this book. The werewolf compnent of this book did not disappoint because I got to see the whole werewolf from the person side to the wolf side and got to see those wolf instinct shine!
The story is a little hard to follow because it’s told from 3rd person and has a tendency to jump from one person to the next depending on what’s happening with little indications of the upcoming switch in the person speaking, but the plot of the story itself and the characters are wonderful and makes up for that!

About the Author:
M.C. Solaris’s life took an unexpected turn during the super blood moon eclipse on January 20, 2019. She woke up and began writing bios for her imaginary friends that she met that day. As soon as the pen hit the paper (or fingertips to the iPhone), she couldn’t stop. It was kind of like one of those fire hydrants, spewing copious amounts of water all over the place. The characters and their stories just flowed out of her. She is honored to be the scribe, getting to share her friends’ stories. You can read all about her gifted friends in the Orion’s Order series (Book 1 is Calypso’s Heart).
On a personal note, M.C. Solaris is actually the pseudonym of Marina Schroeder, women’s health enthusiast and lover of all things paranormal romance (PNR) and happily ever after (HEA). When she is not curled up on the sofa with her partner’s oversized hoodie, a PNR novel, peppermint tea, and one of her three cats, you will find her either at the ocean with her toes in the sand or in a forest hugging a tree. Well truthfully? There is one more place you might find her: trolling the aisles of Whole Foods for a satisfying combination of salty and sweet while hiding in her partner’s hoodie… like any proper PNR-writing introvert.
