* the heroine. I love bad*ss heroines, and this one did not disappoint. (The hero, BTW, was plenty likable, but fairly two-dimensional.)
* the first half of the story. It's action packed and there's lots of suspense; big questions that keep you turning pages.
* the secondary characters. In truth, some of the secondary characters (who I suspect will get their own books) were more developed than our hero. Even though this book wasn't my fave, I'm not opposed to downloading a sample of the next in series to see if it gets better.
What I didn't like:
* The consistency of some aspects. The heroine is hired to take a group of executives on a four week camping trip to the middle of nowhere, Canada in December, and she thinks, it'll be all right; we'll be comfortable; it probably won't snow much. Um, what? Are we talking about the same Canada, because I'm pretty sure it would be more strange NOT to snow in December. And then lo and behold, there are at least three snow storms throughout the course of the book.
* It fell flat once the hero/heroine hooked up. First, the sex scene was...not hot. I can't even with "my womanly folds creamed." Second, it felt as though the book was on fast-forward at that point.
* The wrap-up wasn't satisfactory. I still have a lot of questions, such as (I'll try not to give away too much, but there will be mild spoilers here):
* The main bad guy came across like a total bad*ss and as if he were fully in charge, but then it's revealed that he's actually working under someone else's orders and we get the impression that person is a seriously scary dude....but then he's never actually part of the story. There's no substance to why the bad guy does what he does. I want to know why I should hate this guy so much, and why the guy we think is the main threat is actually acting under his orders.
* Protectors aren't explained well enough. I still don't understand who/what they really are, and the relationship btwn them and shifters.
* Our hero is worried about whether his clan will accept the heroine for a fair amount of the book, and in the end...this isn't addressed. Their HEA just happens and everybody's happy and it felt as though his constant (like chapters and chapters) worrying was pointless.
Like I mentioned, not my fave, and the sex scenes were the sort that cause non-romance readers to make fun of the genre, however, the heroine was awesome and the action in the first half of the book was worthy of page-turns. Hopefully the series improves from here.
Writing good paranormal romance, that keeps you intrigued is difficult at the best of times, especially as there seems to be somewhat of an expectation for the romance in the shifter realms to follow a tightly knit procedure, so it's with a huge smile that I have finally found an author who has the natural ability to write a brilliantly developed action packed romance, fast paced and full of adventure while still giving the characters and the feel within the book the depth details and tender romance needed to fulfill their lives while helping to balance the lives and world surrounding those who are part of this tightly knit community.
I have to highly recommend both the book and the author to anyone who enjoys reading paranormal of any description, you are going to find yourself engrossed with everyone who is connected to Bear and his team.
While I appreciated a steel exterior female lead, I would have appreciated more charisma and connection between the fated mates.
