The prologue starts thirty years ago:
Kathryn Johnson is four years old and she’s with her foster parents, Wanda and Jim Bob. She doesn’t quite understand what’s happening to her. Then Jordan Pride comes to her aid.
Then we jump ahead to the present:
There are Kurjans after Jordan. Jordan is in charge of his pride. Jordan has a beast in him that needs to be tamed. Conlan Kayrs is a vampire that he trusts. They must protect their mates at any cost.
Katie’s job is as a hunter of werewolves. Her partner is Baye. He’s also there to protect her from the werewolves. Rebecca does a great job of creating her shapeshifter world and still stay true to actual surroundings. I love her descriptions of the flora at their location.
Kalin is in charge of the Kurjans. He rules them with food and pain. In order to lead all Kurjans, he must kill a man that lives and rules in Nova Scotia. He is one sick bastard. There are also lots of other characters in this book that have been in previous books. If this is the first book you’re reading in this series, it will help you if you go back and read the previous three books.
One thing I notice is that there is a lot of testosterone and alpha males running around and some of them all want Katie. This book reminds me of a paranormal soap opera – sans “Dark Shadows”. And that’s a good thing. Soap operas hook you in and you have to keep watching. I cut my paranormal teeth on “Dark Shadows”. Every day, after school, I had to sit down and watch my vampires.
I would love to see a paranormal soap opera come back to TV. I can picture Rebecca’s characters in that show. She has me hooked and now I can’t wait for the next book to come out. I need to know what happens to Maggie and Janie. Book 5 is coming out in November of this year so that gives me, and you, plenty of time to catch up on any books that we have not read yet.
