PT's Review of Laurence and the Riders by Sloan Archer

After witnessing a murder, college student Laurence Clarke is forced into working for a gang of outlaw bikers hiding a centuries-old secret, and in the process becomes helplessly captivated by the one girl he’s forbidden to love. Tempted by the money and respect an affiliation with the supernatural Paxios provides, Laurence soon strays to the dark side. But will he be lost forever?

  Laurence and the riders starts out strong with the conclusion at the beginning and everything leading up to it in the chapters that follow. From the very first page we know that Laurence has been changed, but changed into what is the real question. I made the assumption that this was a vampire novel and was surprised to learn that things are not always what they seem.
   Laurence and the riders is told from Laurence's  pov. He discovers that humans are not all that roam the earth. By being in the wrong place at the wrong time he learns of Paxios. The incident that he witnesses leads him to working at the Enders club house that is lead by Boone who is also the father of Jolene, the love of Laurence's life.
   From the very first page I was drawn in, but the next few chapters were slow going. I kept picking the book up just to put it back down a few pages later. But about halfway through the story picked up and then I couldn't put it down. I'm glad I pushed my way through because I ended up really enjoying this book! What I thought was a just another vampire book turned into something much more. This book had it all, action, suspense, romance all wrapped up in a sexy paranormal story . 4 stars for Laurence and the Riders!
