Book Description: Clay Bennett is a powerful DarkRiver sentinel, but he grew up in the slums with his human mother, never knowing his changeling father. As a young boy without the bonds of Pack, he tried to stifle his animal nature. He failed…and committed the most extreme act of violence, killing a man and losing his best friend, Talin, in the bloody aftermath. Everything good in him died the day he was told that she, too, was dead.
Talin McKade barely survived a childhood drenched in bloodshed and terror. Now a new nightmare is stalking her life–the street children she works to protect are disappearing and turning up dead. Determined to keep them safe, she unlocks the darkest secret in her heart and returns to ask the help of the strongest man she knows…
Clay lost Talin once. He will not let her go again, his hunger to possess her, a clawing need born of the leopard within. As they race to save the innocent, Clay and Talin must face the violent truths of their past…or lose everything that ever mattered.
Captivation: This is another one that I just really like. I did have moments of skip-this-paragraph temptations, though.
Sizzle: The intimacy aspect between the main characters in this one is somewhat unique. There is a level of anger between them that both pushes them toward and away from each other. When there is intimacy, it is pretty good.
Romance: The relationship building continues to be fascinating with unique character personalities. There is just enough suspense, frustration, and sweetness mixed in to keep the reader involved.
Enjoyment: I really like this book. It’s one of my favorites of the series. The plot continues to thicken, the characters all over continue to fascinate, and the psy-changeling culture continues to pull you into more and more of a fantastic world.
Literacy: The mistakes continued in this book, more this time, and some distracting enough that I had to pause and read sentences over a few times.
Overall, I enjoy this book and series a lot, and this book is no exception. This is on my Read Again book shelf.
