    "Into the Mist" is an action-packed paranormal erotic suspense that kicks off Maya Banks new series about a group of soldiers who are exposed to a chemical that gives them paranormal powers. For some, it's shifting into animals, another can turn invisible, but for one man it's the answer to a prayer. Eli has always been 'different'. His ability to turn into mist frightened his parents so much, they put him in social services as a child of ten. He learned to keep his secret until he and his buddie "Into the Mist" is an action-packed paranormal erotic suspense that kicks off Maya Banks new series about a group of soldiers who are exposed to a chemical that gives them paranormal powers. For some, it's shifting into animals, another can turn invisible, but for one man it's the answer to a prayer. Eli has always been 'different'. His ability to turn into mist frightened his parents so much, they put him in social services as a child of ten. He learned to keep his secret until he and his buddies were hit with a chemical that's causing his buddies to exhibit paranormal powers. He can finally stop hiding his talents and pass it off as a result of the chemical. But his buddies can't seem to control their powers and Eli's ability to control his has made him a target...for more than one group. Tyana's brother was also affected by the chemical. But Eli and his men left him behind and Tyana can't and won't forgive that. When her brother begins suffering due to his lack of control, Tyana decides to hunt down Eli...literally. He WILL tell her what she wants to know...or else. What a pair. Two physically and psychologically wounded loners who manage to find the perfect match...their alter egos of the other sex! This was the only thing that kind of bugged me. I don't know about the rest of y'all, but I guarantee there's NO WAY I would date a man like me!! Anyway, the sexual tension is smoking from page one and the action and plot tension just keep rising. Banks' humor comes through in her sharp dialogue and I found myself laughing out loud several times throughout the story. Of course, it's necessary to suspend reality to really like this book, but after all, it's a paranormal. Banks characters come alive for me and I found myself wanting to push, smack, hug, etc each of the different characters at one time or another. Now my biggest problem will be waiting for the next book, which I'm hoping will be about the twins and a missing woman..."Into the Lair" is scheduled for a July 1, 2009 release and I'll be waiting!

    4 stars – Paranormal Romance/Erotica Into the Mist is the first in an erotic paranormal series by Maya Banks that focuses on a group of mercenaries who were exposed to a chemical agent during a hostage recovery mission that altered their DNA and turned them into shifters. For some members of the unit it’s a curse since they can’t control their shifts, but for Eli Chance, who’s harbored a life long secret ability of elemental shifting (he can turn himself into fog, smoke, or mist at will), it’s a 4 stars – Paranormal Romance/Erotica Into the Mist is the first in an erotic paranormal series by Maya Banks that focuses on a group of mercenaries who were exposed to a chemical agent during a hostage recovery mission that altered their DNA and turned them into shifters. For some members of the unit it’s a curse since they can’t control their shifts, but for Eli Chance, who’s harbored a life long secret ability of elemental shifting (he can turn himself into fog, smoke, or mist at will), it’s a blessing in disguise because now he no longer has to hide his paranormal powers and can blame the chemical that impacted his merc buddies. Tyana’s brother Damiano was leading the mission and suffered the worst from the effects of the chemical and is becoming more unstable with each passing day. Tyana is determined to save D using any means necessary, whether it’s her position with the Falcon Mercenary Group or by seducing Eli to find out how he can control his powers and the others can’t. Of course, there’s a villain who wants to capture Eli and his men and use them in his quest for power and playing God. Tyana and Eli are quite the pair. They are both cynical, hard-edged, tough loner types with scarred pasts and lots of emotional baggage, but they find a kinship with each other and share dynamic chemistry and explosive sexual attraction. Eli is a super hot hero, and his adoration of Tyana only makes him sexier. Tyana got on my nerves, but her back story explains her prickly demeanor and makes you more sympathetic towards her. There are several interesting secondary characters that benefit the story. (I loved Mad Dog!) With an exciting plot, intriguing characters, funny dialogue, witty banter, smokin’ hot sex (erotic light), lots of action and ass kicking with knives, guns, and hand-to-hand combat, and Banks's great writing, it’s a nice first book in a cool PNR erotica series. 4 stars!

    This was quite possibly the longest synopsis of a book I've ever read. I kept waiting for a narrative to happen, but all I got was the most transparent of plots told to me. Add on absurd names (thuggish guy with a heart of gold named Mad Dog? Check.), unerotic sex, only mentioning the race of the token "African-American" comic relief (I guess peach is the assumed default for the rest of them), major leaps of logic, and you have Into the Mist.

I guess we'll just take her word for it. God forbid she actually say what's on the shirt, that might actually result in character development by cluing us in to his personality and sense of humor, and she so obviously had this guy set up to be a fall guy who dies a heroic death. I keep ending up with free copies of her books and read them hoping I'll discover why she's so popular. I need to stop. Her books are just plain bad.

    I couldn't finish this one. I can't figure this author out. Some of the books by her I've really enjoyed (like the Sweet series), but several others have been hard to suffer through. With this one, I decided why bother? The heroine is TSTL. For instance when Eli just shows up in her room in Paris, wouldn't that be a sign that he put a tracker on her. Or at the least that she should ask some strong questions? For a TSTL heroine it obviously means time for monkey sex. None of her choices made sens I couldn't finish this one.

She questions every common sense choice her leader makes, but I'm supposed to believe she's a tough cunning mercenary? I guess if being strong is synonomous with being stupid then she was really strong. There was no chemistry between Eli and Tyana and no reason to care what happened to any of them, and therefore, no reason to read on. There are too many good books in the world to spend another minute on one that isn't even mediocre. Stats: Who cares, the story is crap

    I like reading Maya Banks. Eli Chance has a big secret he was born a shifter. While on a mission to Ahdarji, a recovery unit, along with their mercenary guide, are exposed to a chemical agent which leaves them all with the ability to shapeshift. Only the shifting is uncontrollable and unpredictable and the answers to the situation seem to lie with the one man who seems to have conquered his shifting Eli.

Only the shifting is uncontrollable and unpredictable and the answers to the situation seem to lie with the one man who seems to have conquered his shifting Eli. Tyana Berezovsky is determined to do whatever she has to in order to find a cure for her brother Damiano's shifting instability. The drugs they'd been using to keep him in human form aren't as effective as they used to be and Ty fears for him. As a member of the elite group of mercenaries called the Falcons she uses her knowledge to attempt to gain information from Eli by seducing him. Eli's very aware there's something different about Ty from the minute he first sees her in a seedy bar. He's blissfully unaware that her interest in him is more than purely sexual until he notices her slip a little something extra into his drink. Ty's mission to get info regarding how Eli's able to control his shifting proves to be more difficult than originally thought since he's not going along with the plan to incapacitate him. She hadn't planned on actually having sex with him but she certainly isn't complaining about the detour in her plans either. Her mission's blown when she can't find the information she needs and Eli busts her searching his place. She still manages to escape and return to her `family' but her concern over D's deteriorating condition will have her going against Jonah and Mad Dog's demands that she give up her quest. These aren't your ordinary shape shifters and I was stunned by how sexy I found Eli's ability to shift into mist. There's no denying Ty and Eli are both deadly as well as emotionally vulnerable and the combination deadly. I loved the smart mouth comments and attitude that are present throughout the entire book. Their verbal sparing keep you smiling despite the seriousness of the situation. This book was well written with no errors in grammar or spelling like all of Ms. Banks books I am looking forward to reading the rest of this series.

    4 stars average, really? Reading the author bio in the back it appears she is native born American - which means she has no excuse for miss use of or misspoken (American) idioms. She made my eye start to twitch, it was bad & happened more than once. The saddest part of the book is that it could've been good. But instead it just went the Mary Sue fanfic TSTL route.

    Well written, steamy romance. For me though, there were way too many characters and I kept losing track. I think this book was supposed to set up a series (hence the plethora of hunky mercenaries), but so far to date there's been only one other book. 3.5 stars.

    Okay, let me get this clear. This book doesn't work for me. I think for some time, romance books just don't cut out for me anymore. Maybe all the grossly exagerrated physical beauty of the characters, or the even more exagerrated greatness of the sex. Or simply there are no story to tell and i just hit the wall with this genre. But because paranormal romance used to be my favorite genre i still give it another chance, and another and another. I just don't know when to stop though everytime i wan Okay, let me get this clear.

I just don't know when to stop though everytime i want to scream or throw-up or screaming while throwing up (I don't know whether it is physically possible). So it is the mercanary world, where Maya Banks want to creat kick-ass heroine while what comes out is snivelling, pain in the ass, good for nothing Tyana. She supposed to be good and strong but she keeps getting in the way and she doesn't do her job well obviously because she botch every job that has been given to her and she doesn't have enough decency to know her limitation. While her lust at first sight is Eli Chance, a shifter. Twice the meet, twice they hit the sack. The third time, still hitting the sack as the forth, fift and so on (you get the gist). Suddenly there's love blooming from multiple orgasm and heart to heart conversation because obviously you can trust a person that you have great sex with. Right???

    I like the book and characters, as well as the spin on shapeshifters used in it. I've read both this one and the sequel before and still wish this series were a lot longer so we could explore more of this world. A couple of logic failings glared out at me from the book, however. Tyana's ability to sense Eli's presence is inconsistent (not to mention unexplained how she does it).

The device and placement comes up in the second book and the person had little trouble removing it from the same area.

The book is still quite good, despite the logic crash, but this series screams and shrieks for a whole lot more sequels. I'd really like a prequel of sorts to set this one and the whole of the series up better. As it stands, we have only what the characters reveal in dialogue and narration. And a whole bunch of unanswered questions.

    As said before: meh... I was expecting more from Ms. Banks. The story should have been more consistent. Everyone seemed to run around without any plan or thought. They should have been highly trained, but they acted as green as they come! They did things that had no sense whatever. I'd come out and say that the only and best thing were the sex scenes... and that's the reason for 3 stars, otherwise it would have been 1 and 1/2. Sorry...

    3.5-4 stars and here's why: 3.5 bc it needed more depth but what can you say when it comes to erotic PNR. That being said, it's hot, sexy and packed with action. These alpha males are worth exploring! 4 bc it got me turning the pages and can't wait for the next book. The storyline has potential due to the emotion shared by these characters, touched & tears lingering ...and that in my book, worth the 4 stars. Moving on to search for Katie...

    At the beginning I was wondering if I had skipped the first book, but no, it IS the first book. But there isn't much explanation about who, why, and how, you just jump into the story and try to understand what's happening. That's frustrating.

    Tyana has a mission: to get Eli and get the cure for her brother. But she discovers Eli doesn’t have the answers she is looking for and she may end up losing her brother after all. But she is contacted by someone else who could save her brother but she has to turn in Eli. Can she do that? This book didn’t hold my attention like I thought it would. I think it just isn’t my genre which isn’t the books fault.

    This was quite bad. I couldn't get past Tyana's opening scene. Her issues with sex and her throwing herself at Eli just didn't make sense. Plus, everyone is a freaking super hero, and there's no real explanation as to Falcon's origins or funding. I couldn't suspend reality for this one.
