There were a couple things that tripped me up in "Eye of the Eagle" but in all I enjoyed it. When you’re dealing with a kidnapping things are always tense and even more so when you know who you’re dealing with. Dealing with shapeshifters is always fun and I was very intrigued by the description. Some of the names threw me off and at times I was a little lost. It might be due to the fact that this book is the third one in the series. I think had I read the first two beforehand, I would have been able to track everything better.
That being said the story-line was solid and made sense. Bert and Phoebe are dealing with their own personal demons and aren’t sure if they are open to a relationship. Things get more complicated when Bert’s niece, Miriam, gets kidnapped and he goes to help in anyway he can. Things get dangerous and boy are you in for a surprise when you find out who Phoebe’s mother is. I love her little dog, Bisou, she’s adorable and protective as hell.
There were a lot of characters that were introduced and sometimes it made my head spin. I think if I had read the previous books it still would have been a lot. There were a lot of people to track and figuring out who was related to who was kind of frustrating. In all it was a good read but I wish the author had let it known that this was part of a series and not a standalone book.

The Haunting of Hotel Labelle and Legacy of Evil
One soars like an eagle. One strikes like a thunderbird. But for both hearts, revenge can be deadly when it's nourished.

Phoebe Wagner, an empath with psychometric abilities and an advocate for the deaf, gets more than she bargained for with Bert. One touch and she relives his IED injuries. So what if he's handsome and hot? She doesn't need to add his secrets to her own. Phoebe's are bad enough.
When his niece goes missing from Hotel LaBelle, Bert goes to Montana to help—and Phoebe insists on going with him. Can these two hard-headed people share their darkest secrets in order to work together? It may be the only way to save an endangered child—and their own hearts when Bert's past rears its ugly head.
