Blurb: Brock Summers is a Colorado Parks and Wildlife Officer who loves his job and takes it very seriously. When he discovers a video of golden eagles being shot and learns of a nest in trouble, not even a blizzard can stop him from trekking up the mountain in an attempt to rescue them.
When Brock returns with the one eaglet he manages to save, Landon Weir, the local wildlife rehabilitator, patches up the bird and the injury Brock suffered during the rescue. Though they have been friends and colleagues for years, they discover a shared passion for protecting wildlife and vow to work together to protect the majestic birds from the criminals preying on them. It isn’t long before another video of eagles being killed comes to their attention.
They must face inclement weather, a dangerous mountain, and armed poachers if they want to ensure the eagles’—and their own—survival.
Review: In A.J. Marcus’s book Eagles Blood, we meet Brock Summers, a parks and wildlife officer, and Landon Weir, a wild life rehabilitator, who work together to save a baby golden eagle and other birds that become targets of poachers who are shooting birds and posting videos online.
I really enjoyed this book, and one of the first things I noticed was just how well researched it was, so much so I feel like I’ve learned things about rehabbing large predatory bids and other wild life I didn’t know before.
Our MCs come across as believable, everyday guys who love their jobs and understand the ups and downs of the job they do, but love it enough to keep doing it even when it’s heartbreaking work. I liked that Brock and Landon had worked together a few years before anything developed between them. It’s nice to find a good friends-to-lovers story.
I liked the pace of this book, and I think Marcus did a great job of balancing the elements of this story. The book never lagged or concentrated too much on either the action or the romance.
Eagle’s Blood is a very enjoyable read I would recommend to anybody who loves animals and the men who work with them.
