There was no time, no time to think about the consequences. Now a fallen Earned with no pack, no mortal friends, and unable to be loved, Kaleb scrambles to find his new place in existence—a place that was the result of a brave long shot when his Honored One, Alex, was dying from a curse.
Kaleb had felt alone as a half-breed among the Earned, and as a fallen Earned he is even less welcome. Still, he finds himself surrounded by new friends. Least of all did he expect an Angel to give him the time of day.
It is time to embrace his mother’s side—a side that makes him even more feared than he was as just a half-breed. This new knowledge makes him aware of a yet unknown threat to himself, his family, and the mortals he loves. But it also brings about a new understanding of what threat his powers pose for mortals.

My Rating: 5 Stars. What Else Can I Give It?
Dear Lord, this was a read to READ! This is very long and exhausting and oh, so exciting and quite overwhelming! For those of you who haven't picked up this series yet, you should stop and just get on with it. For one thing, this is erotic and romantic and full of action, and just keeps on going.
I had waited ages for Kaleb's story and now that I have it, I'm stumped. STUMPED! What in heck, this is not the end of the series, it's just getting bigger. And clearer too.
Look, the previous book, Marked by Shadow (Chronicles of an Earned #3) which review I did, that was a long one, and great and all, but it kind of delayed my need for a Kaleb gratification. Now that I've read this one, I got the answers I needed, I found out why the third book had to be inserted before Starfish, and have learned more than I thought I would about the Earned. Boy, the world building in this series is incredible and I am astounded as to how author Meraki Lyhne can get his facts together without getting lost. I am certainly not that focused unless I have a map in front of me, and even then I can hardly read a map. Bravo on your efforts, Meraki! I want to be you when I grow up.
Now, what's in this story? Ha! As if I know you want me to spoil things, but I can't do that. What I will do is confirm what the other reviewers have said, and more. What I can add in is how much I love Kaleb even more than I used to. He's kind of turned my focus on this series from Alex. Here, he is turning out to be much more than I even anticipated him to be. I mean, sure, I knew he was all kinds of different and all, but not this! Not the way he turned out to be!
And now I have to wait for the fifth book...I know the author is working on it...when will it drop?
About Meraki P. Lyhne and HP Caledon
Meraki P. Lyhne: Meraki P. Lyhne is a Danish author with a love for the paranormal and space opera. He has been writing space opera since 2007, but paranormal erotic romance is a newer love. Closing the door to his writing-den, he delves into elaborate stories and researches ancient religions, mythologies, and arts of the world to be inspired, so he can create new creatures of the paranormal. Meraki is transgender and was formerly known as she/her.
HP Caledon: Thinking there was only so much room for future worlds and chatty characters inside a person’s skull, HP Caledon decided to write some of it down to get some peace and quiet and be able to live in the present moment. Fat good that did—it just made room for more chatty characters! So, with coffee ad libitum and the occasional glass of red wine at the ready he has come to enjoy the run of characters and never-ending creativeness that this brought with it.
When not writing, he reads, trains Crossfit, studies all aspects of life and people, and enjoys more coffee.
HP Caledon is in his late thirties, Danish, and a blacksmith by trade.
