Devan Stowe never imagined how much her life would change when she put her mind to stopping her father’s sordid machinations. Thrust into a world she knows nothing about, she soon realizes she’ll need to be brought up to speed as fast as possible if she and the friends she’s made along the way are to survive. Determined to right all wrongs, she must dive into the secrets of the past in order to make sense of the present.

The Bend-Bite-Shift Omnibus delivers a packing punch from the moment you start reading. Comprised of 10 unique stories, you’re thrown in the middle of Devan’s world. One where the secrets of the past has dire consequences.

I like that the fact that you’re given several origination stories that fill in the voids/loose threads within the Bend-Bite-Shift trilogy, as well as the For Love Of Fae trilogy. While these two series might not seem like they’re connected, at first, they most certainly are. Both have such unique characters that you find yourself immersed within each of the series.

Olivia has created quite a complex world. Granted, it’s one full of darkness. A world Devan wants to make better no matter the consequences. She and her friends have to contend with all sorts of adversities. They do their best to make every moment count, a certainty shown throughout both series and the short stories included within this compilation.


Beyond the golden door lies the faery realm, a place of magic, intrigue and mystique. Forever severed from the human realm, those on both sides of the door are intricately connected in ways they could never have imagined… and perhaps they aren’t as divided as they believed.

Finally, all 10 Bend-Bite-Shift books in one collection. All of it fits…

This omnibus includes the following:

Mine in Dreams | Witch Way Bends | Bitten Shame | Tell A Soul | Shifty Business | By Blood and Benevolence
as well as:
One Bite Paradise | Sweet Magic Song | Transcending the Past | A Dangerous Season




When Olivia Hardin started having movie-like dreams in her teens, she had no choice but to begin putting them to paper. Before long, the writing bug had bitten her, and she knew she wanted to be a published author. Several rejections plus a little bit of life later, she was temporarily “cured” of the urge to write. That is until she met a group of talented and fabulous writers who gave her the direction and encouragement she needed to get lost in the words again.

In November 2011 Olivia sent her first novel, Witch Way Bends, out into the world; and to date, she has over fifteen novels and short stories available both in print and digital.

Olivia has attended three different universities over the years and toyed with majors in Computer Technology, English, History, and Geology. Then one day she heard the term “road scholar,”’ and she knew that was what she wanted to be. Now she “studies” anything and everything just for the joy of learning. She’s also an insatiable crafter who only completes about 1 out of 5 projects, a jogger who hates to run, and she’s sometimes accused of being artistic.

A native Texas girl, Olivia lives in the beautiful Lone Star state with her husband, Danny and their puppy, Bonnie Sue.
