Kurzbeschreibung

A Whyborne & Griffin short story.

Griffin Flaherty wants nothing more than to create a perfect Valentine’s Day for his lover, Dr. Percival Endicott Whyborne. Dinner at a fancy restaurant, an evening at the theater, and a romantic interlude at home should do the trick.

But a new client with an urgent case puts Griffin’s plans in jeopardy. A magic talisman has been stolen, and if it isn’t returned by sundown, disaster will befall not only on the thief but the innocents around him.

Can Whyborne and Griffin track down and return the amulet by nightfall, or will dinner reservations become the least of their worries?

Note: This story takes place between the events of Widdershins and Threshold, and is narrated from Griffin’s point of view.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Short but sweet 8. Mai 2014
Von Silvia
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This is not a novel-length W+G story. Instead it's some sort of ficlet, an interlude between Widdershins and Treshold. It's written from Griffin's POV which is a nice change (not that I mind 'listening' to Whyborne, quite the contrary), but it's a refreshing new take.

Griffin has the perfect Valentine's day planned for his sweetheart but it wouldn't be a W+G story if supernatural thingies weren't to throw rocks in their path... and of course they get their romantic get-together in the end, although it doesn't go exactly as planned.

It was fun to read, lovely, enjoyable - sweet and hot like spiced wine on a cold day :-)

2.0 von 5 Sternen Just my subjective opinion 16. April 2014
Von Justme
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
You can just ignore me, but I NOT LIKE this book!

If by the first book I was not sure if it was a 3 stars or a 3,5 stars read for me, here I didn't have any hesitation at all.
It was too short, thank God, and it was the only reason I managed to read it up to the end!

The Griffin's POV - no, NOT LIKE IT, why his POV sounds suddenly like a woman's POV?!
A cemetery house childish mystery...
NOT PRESENCE of any chemistry, confused sex with a sudden role change. I couldn't enjoy it!!!

This one goes directly to my everybody-likes-but-me shelf.
I'm sooo not impressed that I lost any inspiration to read the next sequels

5.0 von 5 Sternen Eidolon by Jordan Hawks 16. Februar 2014
Von Lena Grey - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
According to Wiktionary, an eidolon is an image or representation of an idea; a representation of an ideal form; an apparition of some actual or imaginary entity, or of some aspect of reality. In 'Eidolon' by Jordan Hawk, Griffin and Whyborne are able to form their own opinions by taking an urgent case that interrupts what Griffin thought would be a spectacularly romantic Valentine's evening.

As happy as Griffin is to have Whyborne in his life, he's also insecure. So many circumstances have ended badly for him that he's constantly waiting for Whyborne to suddenly see Griffin for who he really is, lose interest, and leave him; but as long as they are together he's going to make the most of it. Griffin is intent upon making it the best Valentine's Day ever for both of them. When an influential client comes to him with an urgent request, he's loathe to take the assignment. After hearing more details, he decides he can finish the job and still have time to keep his planned date with Whyborne. It turns out not to be so easy after all; when he includes Whyborne in his search, he puts them both in mortal danger.

Whyborne has no idea that Griffin is harboring such doubt and insecurities about their relationship. He thinks that everything is wonderful between them and is basking in the glow of feelings he never thought he'd have. He's ecstatic about having Griffin as his friend and lover and sees no reason why it can't go on indefinitely. He gladly agrees to assist Griffin in his case, regardless of anything that might happen to him because he'd do anything for Griffin. Although they work well together, and have seen some very scary things, nothing prepares them for the creepiness involved in this case.

Count on Jordan to take such a fabulous relationship, between two exceptionally charming and endearing characters, stick them in the middle of a horrific, repulsive situation and end up with a charmingly romantic Valentine's story. Had I not read the first book,'Widdershins', my heart would have broken for Griffin and his insecurities, but knowing that this awesome, loving union will continue to grow and blossom into something even more amazing, it warmed my heart and made me smile. I highly recommend this to all Whyborne and Griffin fans and encourage possible new readers to consider it, after reading the first book, so as to enjoy this one. Thank you, Jordan, for making Whyborne and Griffin's first Valentine's Day together a happy one after all. Originally reviewed at Rainbow Book Reviews.

5.0 von 5 Sternen With these characters, the author has woven a completely unique and binding spell 12. Februar 2014
Von Dianne T. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
With her superb paranormal/late Victorian era Whyborne & Griffin series (Widdershins, Threshold, Stormhaven), Jordan L. Hawk has crafted a compelling dynamic that has captured readers in a completely unique and binding spell. Eidolon takes up the weave of this spell and spins out a poignant, parallel thread. You see, this short story, unlike the three novels, is told from Griffin’s point of view rather than Whyborne’s.

As stated in the blurb, this story takes place between Widdershins and Threshold, at which time the two men have been living together for a mere two months. I strongly recommend reading Eidolon after reading Threshold and I’ll tell you why. This series is written with exemplary character and relationship development. During the events in Threshold, so many of Whyborne and Griffin’s inner feelings are exposed, disclosed, and mold defining moments in the relationship between the two of them. It allows us to see how they both worked through feelings of inadequacy, and of feeling truly worthy of each other’s love. I really favored having all of that insight, and the overall POV of Whyborne, before going back and being party to what was going on in Griffin’s head during early days of their relationship.

It’s Valentine’s Day and Griffin is determined, and dare I say desperate, to make it special and memorable for his new lover Whyborne. He feels driven to prove himself worthy, just how much so made me ache for him. He is actually frightened by his feelings - which would be quite surprising to those around him, given his proven capabilities and calm, confident exterior. Given the life he had led up until this moment in 1898, Griffin never dared think it possible that he would find one person - one man - to share his life with, and since he has now found that one in Whyborne, he doesn’t dare think it will last. Oh silly, doubtful man…if he only knew. Griffin has planned what he feels is a perfect romantic evening to surprise Whyborne with. (Readers of the series will recognize the card Griffin purchases, as it is referred to so fondly by Whyborne in Threshold and Stormhaven). We all know what happens to the best laid plans though, don’t we… Of course in Widdershins, the wrench that gets thrown into Griffin’s plans has a decidedly supernatural element. Seems Miss Lester, the esoteric owner of the town Funerary has had a talisman stolen, and needs it returned by sundown or…else??!??! And…it’s already past noon.

No telling what havoc could emanate from not locating the talisman in time, but Griffin dreads the potential fallout of having his perfect evening ruined even more than whatever arcane aspects he may come up against in pursuing the case. He decides it best to enlist the assistance of Whyborne, who with his talent for turning a spell, has proved to be quite useful – to say the least - when dealing with matters of the occult. What ensues are some hair- raising and “what the heck just happened” moments, combined with the signature humor the author peppers in with great impact throughout this series. Simply reading the name of the fanciest restaurant in Widdershins, Le Calmar, makes me grin. At the same time, it was heart-wrenching to experience Griffin’s distress as he realized his perfectly planned evening was falling apart as each minute ticked by. I was left wondering just who/what Miss Lester’s Grandfather was, and if we might get mention of those two again down the road. At the end of the day, Griffin and Whyborne get to realize some of those, shall we say, best laid plans after all. Mmm, do they ever. ;-) ♥

I love this series and characters with an absolute passion. I thank Jordan Hawk from the bottom of my heart for gifting us with Griffin’s POV. Eidolon is indeed a stirring and yes, at times, bittersweet window into the very soul of this special man. To quote Whyborne: “it’s perfect”.

I must mention the cover too. I mean seriously, check out that idyllic expression on Whyborne’s lovely face, just knowing it’s inspired by Griffin … sigh. ^_^

5.0 von 5 Sternen Wonderful Valentine short in the Whyborne & Griffin series. 11. Februar 2014
Von d.blue - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This is a beautiful addition to the Whyborne & Griffin series. It falls in-between Widdershins and Threshold and you will recognize something from this short and get the story behind it. I love the characters in this series. My heart goes out to Griffin so much and Whyborne does not judge him but loves him which makes these two such an awesome couple. Actually - there is a lot more than that, but I am caught up in the valentine love here. Fun, kind of spooky and very romantic.
If you have not read this series I strongly encourage you to start at the beginning with Widdershins. This is a wonderful series, well written in a historical setting with paranormal elements and delightful characters.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Griffin's POV!!! 12. Februar 2014
Von K. Pless - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I adore the Whyborne & Griffin series, and this short story was a charming addition. It's set between Widdershins and Threshold, so if you haven't read at least the first book, you won't enjoy this story as much. (I can highly recommend any book in this series, so go grab Widdershins before you read this one.)

I loved seeing their relationship through Griffin's eyes. I had the impression that Griffin was entirely confident as he wooed Whyborne in Widdershins, so the cracks in his confidence that emerged in Threshold were very intriguing. In Eidolon, Griffin showed his vulnerability to the reader as he desperately tries to hide it from Whyborne, and it only made him more endearing to me.

My favorite moment was when I got to see just why Whyborne was so attached to the card Griffin gave him as well as how much his reaction to the card meant to Griffin.

As much as I love reading Whyborne's point of view, I hope Ms. Hawk will be inspired to write more short stories in Griffin's voice. If you've enjoyed the series so far, you will not regret picking up Eidolon.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Nice Change of Perspective 11. November 2014
Von Joelle - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This novella, short as it was, served its purpose perfectly, in showing Griffin's view of Whyborne and their relationship. While the "job" Griffin takes is very clearly irrelevant except as an amusingly time-consuming plot device, the insight gleaned into Griffin's mind is as sweet as the rest of their love story, IMO one of the most satisfying in recent literature. This series is a jewel, and I don't even begrudge the money spent; it's worth every penny.
