This is the fifth book in the Night Prowler series and should be read in series order.

The Ikati shape shifters are collapsing their strongholds in an effort to remain hidden from their enemies which are comprised of governments, religious zealots, and secret organizations, most of the human race and some of their own kind. They are converging in the rainforests of Brazil.

Jacqueline “Jack” Dolan is a reporter whose recent editorial after the events in Rome has brought her to the attention of the Ikati. Her words called for their extinction, swaying public opinion, and were used by politicians to further their own agenda against the Ikati race. The Ikati are not taking this lightly, they have a plan and it just might destroy Jack who having never even met an Ikati denounced them based on the actions of one. When she does meet an Ikati it will blow her world apart and she won’t know what he is when she meets him.

Hawk Luna is an Ikati that women of both races swoon over, an illegitimate son who has never fit in with his clan but is subject to his race’s rules. He was selected to seduce Jack in an effort to get her to retract her words through blackmail. But Jack is not as expected for the woman who would write such a piece. She is complicated and there are things in her past that have damaged her. She stirs feelings in Hawk and the plan changes. Together these two will walk a dangerous path that leads to each other amidst racial politics, betrayals from within and the coming war between the species.

This series is excellent paranormal romantic suspense, superbly written. The prose is sensual, at times lyrical, the storyline riveting.

Absolutely loved this book! It's the penultimate book in the series which is kinda sad cause I don't want the series to end! In the previous books we've been to the English colony and the Rome colony as well as a couple of places in between but this book takes the story to the Brazilian colony and I loved seeing how different they were to the English and Rome colonies. They're more isolated and so seem to be even deeper into the old ways and old rituals that the other colonies no longer celebrate.

I loved the characters of Hawk and Jack and seeing them progress from enemies to friends to lovers on their journey. Jack always prided herself on her open-mindedness and not being a racist like her father but she was blind to her own bigotry until it was pointed out by Hawk and further emphasized during her time with the colony.

In particular the events at the Punishment Tree presented a poignant and beautiful scene in my opinion. I won't say what happened as it's a moment that each reader needs to experience for themselves but it is one of the scenes in the book that profoundly touched me and the scene of Jack's first heartfelt soul deep epiphany that significantly changes her opinion towards the Ikati people.

I also loved her speech near the end. She and Hawk were a perfect match and really brought each other to life and healed each other in ways no-one else has ever been able to. I also love Hawk's Gift, one he shares only with Jack that no-one else knows about and is one that has never been heard of before in Ikati history!

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

As a disclaimer, I have not read any of the other Night Prowler books and was completely unaware of the rest of the series when I picked this book up. That being said, I didn't have any trouble understanding the characters, world, plot, or larger storylines. This was a really meaty paranormal romance read that offered more than your typical "quickie" PNR.

Jack is a tough as nails reporter who is taking a stand against the "shifter invasion." While on assignment she ends up getting saved by a mysterious hottie who calls himself Hawk. Unrealistic? Jack thinks so, too, which leads her to believe that her BFF has sent this beautiful man as a birthday gift, fully paid for. The chemistry is super hot in this book -- reader be warned! They explode from the beginning, but are unfortunately faced with *a lot* of obstacles, the first of which is Hawk's less than stellar motivations. He has been chosen by his pack to seduce Jack and then reveal photos of them together along with his shifter background, thus ruining the great anti-shifter reporter's credibility.

Lucky for them, there are larger forces at play that manage to keep these two in close company long enough to overcome some "misunderstandings" from their first encounter. The story goes along those lines for a while -- each time I felt like they were closer to a HEA, some badness would creep into their relationship again (either paranormal or otherwise). The book does eventually meander towards a HEA, but you really have to work for it with these two.
