“Love the story, but hated the way it ended. Did not have a better ending. Should have had something for the reader hanging on for "What's next!!" but it didn't.”Lori F wrote this review Monday, July 15, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“I really liked this book. Stygian is on a mission to find Honor Roberts and this leads him to Liza Johnson, assistant to the chief of the Navajo Nation. Liza is Stygian's mate, but she is resistant to him because of her friend Isabelle Martin she is the mate to Malachi Morgan. Liza saw that Isabelle pretty much does everything Malachi wants and that is not the life she wants. So she will resist the KISS.... Stygian feels the Heat of mating and he does not understand why Liza is not as affected as him. He will start working with her on the last known location of Honor, Fawn, Judd and Gideon in Window Rock Arizona and hope that she can help with the mystery since she is the assistant of Navajo Nation. But it only opens a nasty can of death that was better left unknown.
But Stygian is getting pressure from Jonas because Amber is very ill and Jonas feels that Honor may have the answer to his baby girl's health. The closer Stygian gets to the truth of Honor, the more danger his mate is in.
I can't wait until the next book, I hope it is Gideon and Claire. Or Cassie and her Mate maybe Dog?”
“eThis book was one of the best that I read in Lora Leigh's breed series. It had some humour, romance, affection and interesting plot . It was nice to notice that Lora Leigh made Stygian not just as a breed who knows how to fight and hump but also as a man capable to displaying some humour, wanting to woo his 'mate' and show some vulnerability. Liza's character was also likable as she was; dry-humoured, able to demonstrate affection...so reading about Lora's brutal description of animilistic intimate moments were less mortifying for me,..I still think she does not have to use masculine crude description for female anatomy. :-) ”lily wrote this review Monday, March 4, 2013.

“Ah, yes! This book pleased and disappointed me on so many levels, twas a damn shame!
Out of all the books in the series to date, this one left me the most upset. I was always intrigued by Stygian, out of all the breeds, because of his background genetics and the simple fact that he was an anomaly. It's very hard when one of your favorite characters finally get a book and it's sub-par and that's basically what this entire book was in one term... sub-par
First off, the book seemed to be about everybody and all the creatures in the woodwork. I came to read about Stygian. Yes, I understand that there are other story-lines active, mainly with Jonas trying to find a cure Amber but come on. The book's title was "Stygian's Honor" and because of that I expected more of him and not everybody else to overpower it.
The whole, mating for Stygian was another thing I didn't like. I called what unfolded from the start. I knew who was who and what was done before it was even beginning to be unravelled. I hate, hate, hate predictable books. When I can call something, 100+ pages before it's finally revealed, I end up feeling utterly disappointed. It was so blatantly clear what the issue with Liza and company was that I think even if you're weren't looking at the clues, you would have realized.
I want to say so many things about this book, but I can't do that without spoiling the book. There were good parts to this book, especially where Amber was concerned because she was tugging very hard on my heartstrings and I'm still imagining big bad Jonas singing, "bad cotie go bye bye, boom boom."
It's just that this wasn't the best written book in the series and the way it ended, I felt as if, it was cut off abruptly without reason. Ugh! I'm so freakin' upset that Stygian's book was chopped up like this. I hope the next installment will be better.
“What a way to leave me hanging! This book was amazing, getting into the spiritual side of the Native Americans that a lot of the Breeds got their DNA from. But we still don't know if Amber will be ok! I like Stygian and his mate and how they end up relating to each other. It was a touching, but also action packed Breed story.
I hope Lora Leigh releases the next book soon!”
“This is more of a 3 1/2 star review than 3 stars. I enjoyed this book quite a bit, primarily because of the connection with the Navajo Nation, and how certain members have gone out of their way to help those from the Breed research stations who've escaped disappear and blend in with society! Liza Johnson is in training to become one of those agents that go out of their way to help the Breeds, and she is also an assistant to the chief of the Navajo Nation as well.
Stygian is a Breed warrior assigned to try and track down the last known location of Honor Roberts and 2 others who had escaped more than a decade earlier. The last known location of Honor was in Window Rock, Arizona, and she had escaped when she was just 13. It was surely her only sanctuary from the Breed research facility that would have ended in her death, and one of those experiments should have killed her, but hadn't. And now, to save the daughter of his boss's daughter, dying from a similar virus... Finding Honor is his only hope, and Liza Johnson may be the key in his hopes of finding Liza. But will the mating heat that develops between Stygian and Liza get in the way of his goal?
What I liked about this story is that Liza is one of the only human females that finds a way to dampen the mating heat between them, and it drives Stygian crazy! It seems Liza has stuff going on inside of her head that no one knows about, and being close to Stygian is too much of a distraction for what she is trying to do, and she hates how the Breeds have come in demanding information that is sacred to her people. The family dynamics between her and her parents is amazing, as well as how opposite it is for her best friend and her parents. Secrets get unlocked and turmoil builds up. It is really a riveting read, but the one problem I have with most of this series, is that there is too much focus on the sex, when the story itself is so interesting. Of course, the mating heat is all consuming for the couple when it is finally triggered, so I really liked that Stygian was more frustrated than his mate for a change!”
“i keep reading these books because i have read the whole seies and cant stop know.But there all the same and just dont excite me anymore.
“This is probably one of the best books Lora Leigh has written in some time. Don't get me wrong the last few books have been good and I enjoyed them they just lacked a little something that the earlier books had. This is a continuation of the story line about Amber and Jonas trying to find a cure for what Brandenmore did to her. Jonas is after two breeds and two young women in that are supposed to be part of the Navajo Nation. One of these young women is Honor Roberts which was mentioned in Jacobs Charity. I am surprised that it has taken this long to write her story. I have wondered for years what happened to this person that seemed so important to the continued safety of the Breeds. I also have to wonder if the same experiments that were done on Honor were done on Charity. I loved getting to see Dog and Loki and Mutt and the rest of the Coyotes that seem to live to give Jonas grief. I also have to wonder what little scheme Dog is up to. I have a feeling he can be as bad or worse than Jonas. It was also nice to see Cassie again, although I would have liked to see what she had to say after the attack on Honor. I am curious about what was going on with Liza and the spirits that were with her. I am also curious about the spirit that seems to have attached itself to Stygian. I am pretty sure it is Fawn Corrigan's spirit and she is afraid of Gideon. I would have liked to see more about Gideon and I hope that Lora has a way to same him. He tugs at my heart strings and I would like to see him healed and happy. He so deserves it after all the Genetics Council has put him through. I hope that Lora has a plan to shut down this part of the Council's experiments and lab. I am glad that Gideon is delivering retribution on those that were involved. I am sorry that it is causing so much upset because he is killing them but they deserve so much more. No one should have to put up with so much torture and humiliation. I am hoping the next part of this story will be out soon. I hate that Amber is hurting and so sick. I hate that Jonas is so worried and desperate to find a cure any cure for Amber. I am worried he will miss something and make a mistake that will get him hurt or worse. I definitely recommend this book for any of those that may have given up on the series. While you need to read all the books to understand what is going on in this book I think it would be worth the time.”Lady Isis wrote this review Sunday, September 16, 2012.

I started reading this book and felt like I had missed a big part of the plot and was very confused for awhile. I started thinking that maybe I had missed an entire book somewhere and realized that I did indeed miss a novella about Malachi & Isabelle that was in an anthology (and I really hate buying an anthology, because I usually only care about one story and think the rest is a waste, but that's my opinion) . Once I got past the confusion I really started liking Stygian and loved that he didn't deny the mating, but instead opened himself to it. Liza, on the other hand, ran hot and cold with me. She didn't like it but gave into it then embraced it then fought it then loved it. But of course after saying all that I must admit I finished the book in one day because ....well, it's a Breeds book. I can't not read one of these incredibly sexy books in one setting.”
“Stygian’s Honor, is the 27th book in the Breed series by well known author, Lora Leigh. The story continues with the breed society trying to find answers to what is happening to Amber, the daughter of Jonas, the director of the breeds and his mate, Rachel. Amber was injected with a mysterious serum when she was a young infant and has suffered severe side effects since.
Following many leads they have found themselves at the doors of the Navago Nation searching for two missing teenage girls, Faith Corrigan and Honor Roberts. There has been no trace since their disappearance, but the breeds know that the council are after the missing girls as much as Jonas wants them found. Jonas believes they hold the answer to the cure needed for his much loved daughter. Gideon, one of the breeds that was trapped with the teenage girls is also hot on their trail and in a race against time to see who will find the girls first.
Liza is the Navago Nation representative and Stygian Black is the breed that has been given the task to find Honor Roberts. When they meet there is an instant attraction and the more time they spend together they hotter the setting becomes. I loved the character of Stygian Black. He was the usual strong and dominant male breed, but also showed just how in sync he was to his mate. As Stygian and Liza delve deeper into the missing girls disappearance while fighting the mating heat they finally find some of the answers they have been searching for.
As usual Lora Leigh doesn’t disappoint when it comes to sexiness, intrigue and an added little bit of humour. Each time I have finished one of her books I find myself yearning for the next instalment and wondering which character will be brought to life for us.
