Can two very different men find the love they need to survive?
Remi Ginn’s an easygoing werecat with a love of snarky T-shirts. He would be perfectly happy with a human mate. Is that what the goddess Bast gives him? Of course not. Instead she gifts him with Marshell, a Vetala, a snakelike nonshifter who drinks blood to survive. A man who’s just as toppy as Remi—and even more powerful than the West Falls Clowder’s Alpha and heir apparent.
While Remi is deciding whether he can handle the fates’ choice, hunters attack Marshell. Afterward, in an explosion of passion, Remi and Marshell mate and Remi declares Marshell his. Now they have to figure out how to make their relationship work as they dance around each other.
The clowder is in turmoil, and Remi’s acceptance of Marshell rocks the very foundation of the insular group. The consequences will be far-reaching. And if that isn’t problem enough, the situation with the hunters is far from resolved… as proved by the appearance of an Alpha werewolf.
This was an enjoyable read for me. Having read the other books in the series, I couldn’t wait to jump into this book and see what was going to happen between Remi and Marshell. And how the clowder was going to react to having a Vetala join their bunch.
I enjoyed both Remi and Marshell, but I have to say the thing that I loved most about Marshell is that he didn’t really change that much from the previous book in the series when he was introduced. So it wasn’t like meeting a whole new character, he was exactly as he portrayed himself to be.
The story had the drama and suspense that I expect when I read a book by Church. I wasn’t disappointed in the slightest about it all.
Of course there are some loose ends from the previous books that are tied up in this book. As well as leaving some questions that I hope will be answered in the future.
Overall, a really great addition to this series and I can’t wait to read more from the author in the future.
