I have deeply loved the books I have read by Milly Taiden, and this series has quickly become my favorite by this fantastic author. She writes a wonderfully compelling storyline that is so deliciously complex and stunningly heartfelt. I lost myself in its strong yet seductive grip. The characters are beautifully fierce, and I found my heart shredded at the real problems that they all face. Taiden makes you feel everything, and that realization blew me away the first time I read one of her stories. Now it attracts me like a bear to honey. I don't want to read a book if I can't feel every person, every decision, and the atmosphere that permeates throughout the treasured pages of a precious masterpiece.This is the creme de le creme of paranormal stories, and you will be missing out on pure perfection if you pass this book up!
This was an enjoyable story but it ends in a cliffhanger and I wasn't very happy about that.
Marika is s squirrel shifter that is a doctor in genetics. She is very hyper due to her inner squirrel and tends to be messy in a rather organized and controlled way.
Devin is a panther shifter that works for the Fellowship, an undercover group of shifters that investigate unusual crimes. Devin is rather damaged due to the loss of his sister and nephew. He fears loving again because loving and losing someone is just too painful. He also seems a bit on the OCD side.
The story starts with the death of a Senator that Devin comes across while taking his morning jog. He finds out that it was a shifter attack and under the purview of the Fellowship. One of the creatures that attacked the Senator was killed and the body is sent to a special lab that Marika works at doing genetic research. This brings Marika and Devin together and they recognize each other as mates and accept it with very little strife. The only real drama is a couple of minor freak outs by Devin where he questions the mating because of his fears. I did like that Marika wasn't willing to put up with any of his bull and smacked him around (in a nice way) when when he questioned them. Although Marika and Devin do cement their mating before the end of the story, they're not safe at the end and the story ends in a total cliffhanger so I can't even say they're at a HFN state.
This was an enjoyable story. I liked Marika and thought her spunk was cute...even if I questioned her "ninja skills" that were apparently learned mostly from kung fu movies. Devin was a good hero but I didn't understand his idea to reject his mate to avoid future hurt...it just didn't make sense because (from the way it sounds like mates work in this world) leaving her would have broken him anyways. I liked he interactions between them but the story was a bit short and with the investigation and all, I didn't get as much of the interaction between MCs as I would have liked. Overall, this was a decent story but I am annoyed it ended in a major cliffy and at this point, I'm unsure if I'll continue the series...
