Product Description

**Now an International Amazon Bestseller**

Thousands of years ago, the Skröm split off from the Light Clans and became Dark. Their greed for blood consumed them. Their once orange eyes bled to red, and they became one of the demons of legend. And when they die, they do not rest. They haunt. They take. They devour. Their souls become Shadows. Darkness. Death.

Alexia Maria Garda-Martinez was born a monster. Red hair. Red eyes. Pale skin. And nowhere to call home. But after years of foster care and state homes, she has finally found her niche. A family. A promising career. And a life that’s fulfilling.

Devon Waters ran from his hometown of Montville, New York fifteen years ago, and he found more than he bargained for. Reunited with his twin brother, a detective in the local police department, Devon doesn’t plan on running again.

When a brutal, ritualistic murder happens right in their little college town, Alexia and Devon are pulled into a world of good versus evil that will have them both questioning who they are. The Skröm and the Shadows are closing in, and Alexia and Devon must join forces to stop the darkness at all costs.

Will Alexia be able to fight her darker instincts, or will the devil inside of her draw her into its seductive web?

The Devils Pride is the first book in the Wild Beast Series by T. Birmingham. This is a sexy “shifter” murder mystery- that has action, supernatural themes and paranormal elements.
The Skröm separated from the Light Clans thousands of years ago- and became very dark. They were obsessed by their hunger for blood. This blood-lust turned them into demons, and their once magnificent orange eyes transformed to crimson. Death didn’t stop them, they just became shadows that haunt and devour, bringing darkness and death.
Alexia Maria Garda-Martinez has carried the weight of being different to everybody else, her whole life. Always the brunt of jokes or the victim of teasing, she was called ‘demon’ and made to feel like an outcast. All because she has vibrant red hair and eyes the colour of rubies. Alexia bounced around from foster home to foster home and in and out of state care for a very long time, until finally a family took her in and welcomed her as one of their own. She has found herself in a good position; she’s in her niche, has a family and a fantastic friend- with a promising career ahead of her.
Devon Waters ran away from home fifteen years ago, leaving behind horrific memories, but hoping that his absence would make life easier for his twin brother, Cam. He has discovered a lot in those fifteen years and has now returned to his home town of Montville, New York. Reunited with his brother, who is now a Detective with the local Police Department, Devon plans on sticking around.
A brutal murder has got everyone on edge, as the ritualistic way the victims were killed and displayed, has raised a lot of questions and concerns.

Alexia Maria Garda-Martinez has always felt different, has always been different. That difference being pale skin, red hair and red eyes because of this she has always been looked at differently, especially because of the eyes. Alexia spent years in the foster system never knowing who her parents were or where she came from. She was given a home with a nice loving family, she has a job and is studying something she loves and has the best friend she could ever hope to have, that is like her sister, Mindy. All she needed was someone to love.

Devon Waters and his twin brother, Cam did not have the best childhood which caused Devon to flee from his home in Montville, New York. He was found by people he now calls family who helped him find his true self. Devon decides that it’s time for him to make amends with his brother and heads back to Montville. After being discovered at a gruesome murder scene he is reunited with his brother, who is a detective in the local police department. Cam is having trouble reconciling his feelings for a brother who left him behind but Devon doesn’t plan on leaving any time soon.

Alexia, Mindy and Cam find themselves in the middle of strange occurrences, murder and mayhem. They all have secrets that will leave them questioning just who and what they are. With Devon’s help they begin to understand just what they are up against. They discover there are many things in the world that good and evil, light and dark, friend and foe. The worst they discover is the Skrom who live by drinking blood, they became dark souls, Shadows. They have no respect for life, they take what they want, they are Death.

The Devil’s Pride (Wild Beasts Series) T. Birmingham

Wow. This book was amazing for new paranormal/urban romance writer T. Birmingham. I’m a big fan of paranormal stories and this series has all the makings of being a new favorite.
Supernatural books can sometimes get complicated with so many supernatural races being thrown into a story. But T. Birmingham has written a story that not only will suck you in from page one but leave you shaking your head just when you thought you knew what was going to happen.
Alexia is different. Red hair and red eyes, her life in the foster care system has left her just wanting to belong. Now that she is older and has been accepted for her differences, her life seems to be settling down. Her best friend Mindy has always been her biggest supporter and the one person who has the ability to calm her when needed. But her life is about to be upended by a series of brutal murders in her town of Monteville, NY. What is draining these people of their blood and why is it happening? She is about to find out the truth to her unusual appearance courtesy of a tall, dark, and extremely handsome man-bear.
Devon has come back to Monteville to help figure out why the murders are happening. Reunited with his twin brother Cam, aka Mindy’s boyfriend, he is about to shake up the truth of who and what they all are. A world that revolves around Light and Dark Clans. A world where a redhead with red eyes is not unheard of. Where Light and Dark Clans don’t mix. All of that is about to change when Devon meets Alexia. Though hardly love at first sight, their chemistry is off the charts which makes this story even that much better.
This book had me guessing. Just when I thought I had things figured out, T. Birmingham would throw me off and make the story that much more intriguing. The story flowed so easily and it was hard to have to go to sleep while reading it. So yes, I blame T. Birmingham for the bags under my eyes. It’s a “just one more page/chapter” kind of book that has you reading all night. So thank you T. Birmingham for an amazing new paranormal series! I for one cannot wait to see where these characters and you will take us. Congrats on your first book!!

The Devil's Pride (Wild Beasts Series)
By: T. Birmingham
5 out of 5 stars

The story The Devil's Pride (Wild Beasts Series) by T. Birmingham is a paranormal romance book. Alexia Maria Garda-Martinez has been called a demon since she was put in foster care and state homes. Now she is carving out a life for herself. Then a ritualistic murder hits the small college town of Montville, New York. Now Alexia is thrown into a world that has her questioning who she is. Is she really the monster that everyone though? The world of the Light Clans and the Skrom, who are Dark, collide. Although she is not alone in this fight will she and her new allies be able to stop those who want darkness to prevail?

This book is awesome. By the standards of a paranormal romance story I would like to give it a 10. The story grabs you from the start and doesn’t let go. I also love how before the story starts you are given basic terms that are used in the book and also a brief history on each of the Clans. The Clans are also explained a little more in depth throughout the book as well as family lines. Finding out who you are and accepting it is what a lot of the story is about. There are also scenes that describe abuse that some of the characters have endured. The scenes help you to understand a little more about some of the characters and why they have ended up where they are. I felt the issue was done in a sensitive manner. There are more characters in this book an you can shake a stick at. That however doesn’t mean that they are unnecessary. Quite the opposite is true. Each one lays a part of the books foundation and I would have a hard time, if I even could, asked to pick ones that were not a great addition to the story.

If you love paranormal romance this is the book for you. If you’re looking at the book and wondering if it’s a good fit for you I would recommend reading it. It is a wonderful example of how the genre is written. There are sexy, romantic scenes, murder and scenes for abuse. I would recommend readers to be 18 years of age or older.

100% Spoiler Free review by MeShelly.
Enter the brilliant Mind of T. and join in the unique world she has created. Just be prepared to dig your claws in and not let loose until you've clawed through every page.
You'll meet some awesome people in this world. Starting with Alexia, a dormant. And our main female character. She is spunky, full of life, independent, quirky, and strong willed. But that's not all she is, she is more, and being hidden from the world for so long has put her in jeopardy.
Will Alexia be able to hold her own against her "midnight" a man she has been dreaming about, a man who turns out to be the very real twin brother of her best friends boyfriend.
Only is he a man at all? And why does he seem to hate her the instant he lays his gorgeous eyes on her?
Devon is his name and he has been out of his twins life for years, he has been meaning to return but not for the reasons he does.
The small town of Montville NY has been ravished with brutal murders and the cause of death is otherworldly.
Alexia is clearly attracted to Devon, but he seems to hate her for no reason other than the color of her eyes, which suggest evil. No matter on whether she is evil or not the clock is ticking on finding who or what is killing these families. Will the pair be able to work together? Will Alexia get her Midnight, or is she truly the evil one? Nothing in this story is as it seems.
Every character in is so well developed and when T. introduces us to the "clan" life it's like nothing I've ever read before. She has a way with words that dance across the pages and pull emotions out of you that you didn't even know where there.
*** note this does end on a cliffhanger & reading Rage Against the Devil is an absolute MUST.

No spoilers!

Be prepared to want to stay up all night finishing this story. T Birmingham has a beautiful way with words. This story was unlike anything I've read before and so detailed but not in an annoying way. I'm a huge fan of paranormal and T does not disappoint!

5.0 out of 5 stars Blown away..... 24 November 2016
By HAmbrose - Published on Amazon.com

Wow, where to start? This was an amazing take on the paranormal! Her take on "werewolves" and "vampires" is different and unique. The characters are well written and the story never lags. I had to keep reading to see what was happening next. I fell in love with Devon & Alexia. One thing I really enjoyed is the friendship between Alexia and Mindy! It kind of reminds me of my relationship with my best friend. I am seriously impatiently waiting for Book Two!! I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves the paranormal romance genre.
