Review Tour & Giveaway - Fox and Birch (The Rowan Cycle #3) by Sam Burns

Length: 48,000 words approx.

Cover Design: Melanie Harlow @ Clause & Effect

The Rowan Harbor Series

Book #1 - Blackbird In The Reeds -
Book #2 - Wolf And The Holly -


Fletcher Lane wants to protect people. It was why he became a deputy. A month ago, it was why he killed a vampire who kidnapped one of his friends. Now, that death has started a cascade effect that’s tearing his life apart, leaving him possessed by magic that whispers to him in ancient Gothic.

While he’s already fighting for control of his own mind, he has to hold it together when strangers come into town looking for the dead vampire. They say they’re bounty hunters, but Fletcher knows that’s a lie. They’re the same kind of murderers who killed Fletcher’s mother. When one of them puts up a kind front, Fletcher knows that people who hunt the supernatural can’t be trusted. However nice Conner Mason seems, the worst thing Fletcher could do is fall for his act.

This is the third of nine books in The Rowan Harbor Cycle, not a standalone. It continues where the second book left off. Fletcher and Conner will return in book six to continue their story, so this book contains a HFN, not their HEA.

Fox and Birch by Sam Burns. 
Book 3 in the Rowan Harbor Cycle. 

This book is a continuation of books 1 & 2, but the MC is Deputy Fletcher "The nice cop" from the previous books. 

This story is about Fletcher's struggle with his own natural magic of being a shifter and this new foreign magic from the "evil book". He's also dealing with his mother's murderer showing up, an "untrustworthy" love interest, taking lessons from Oak on how to focus and become what his mother always told him he could be. All while trying to protect the town, especially his own father. 

Fletcher and Conner are both so sweet, apart and together. And the entire town acting as one parental unit on Fletcher's behalf is both frustrating and endearing. It goes to show he actually does have a place and real friends in this town. I am glad we got most of Fletcher's story, but all these books are HFN's as there will be 9 books in the entire series. As the author explains it is a trilogy of trilogies.


About The Author

Sam wrote her first fantasy epic with her best friend when she was ten. Like almost any epic fiction written by a ten year old, it was awful. She likes to think she’s improved since then, if only because she has better handwriting now.

If she’s not writing, she’s almost certainly either reading or lost down a wikipedia rabbit hole while pretending to research for a novel.
