All three main characters have serious issues they are dealing with. Owen and Gawain are brothers raised in an abusive home with Owen taking the brunt of the abuse from their crazy mother. If that wasn’t heartbreaking enough, we are brought along for the ride as Darcy escapes from an evil group called the Scythe, who had imprisoned an entire town’s worth of shifters for years. The females are being held as hostages in order to force the males to carry out missions for the group. The females are dying off at an alarming rate and if Darcy can’t get help soon, all will be lost, especially for her brothers.
I loved Darcy. She was strong and unbelievably brave, willing to do anything to save her people even if it meant putting herself back into the very danger she escaped from. She was hardworking and loyal, and extremely smart, learning how to not only be a Daonain but also all the rules that went along with it. It’s good she was assigned two sexy, growly, and knowledgeable mentors to help her along.
As much as I loved Darcy (and Gawain too) it was Owen who completely stole my heart. He was growly, grumpy and, because of his issues with his mother, a borderline misogynist. A Cahir, or god chosen warrior for his people, he was perfectly suited for keeping his people safe from harm but his attitude needed some serious work.
Gawain was a blade mage, which made him physically tough, but it was his laid-back attitude that made him an imminently more suitable choice of mentor for Darcy, although the task of was given to them both. I think Gawain was the voice of reason, a calming influence for both Owen and Darcy.
The more Owen and Gawain got to know their new charge, the more they wanted her no matter how hard Owen fought it. As for Darcy, she developed feelings for her mentors, but she knew as soon as she had control of her newfound cougar, she needed to go help her people.
These three had lots of lessons to learn, from trust, to control, to how to forgive oneself. Leap of the Lion was an action-packed emotional journey, and although a slow burn at first, it was hot as Hades too. I can’t wait to see what happens next for the characters in The Wild Hunt Legacy.
First and foremost, Sinclair's books are about the development of inter- and intra-personal relationships--they're complicated romances set in a town of engaging and entertaining characters and a rich shifter culture. Don't mess with them. The males are the muscly over-protective sort, and the women are smart and feisty with sharp claws and teeth. I enjoy paranormal romance as a genre, but Sinclair's writing rises above most of what's out there.
I'm not a huge fan of the m/f/m arrangement--it's one too many in the bed--but it's a critical part of the Wild Hunt world, and it's a testament to her writing that I have read this series multiple times and agree that in this context, the m/f/m relationships honestly work. I sincerely hope that the next book in this series is already outlined and flowing from her pen.
I was thoroughly and completely entertained by this book. This series has captured my imagination. I look forward to more. Perhaps Tynan and Donal's story? Or maybe Darcy's brothers?
This is the most recent of the series. The focus is on Darcy, a prisoner of the Scythe, a large, powerful organization trying to learn the secrets of shifters. They control the male shifters by holding the females captive. Darcy is forced into shifting for the first time under extreme pressure. Discovered eavesdropping on the Director, she shifts into her mountain lion form and escapes only to find herself trapped in a form she cannot change back from.
Rescued by the guardian of the territory, she is given shelter and put under the protection of two experienced shifters. The two brothers couldn't be more unlike. Gawain is a blade-mage, with extraordinary Goddess-give gifts of metal work. Easy going and cordial, Darcy is drawn to his gentleness and goodness. Owen, on the other hand, dislikes all women in general and Darcy in particular. He is grumpy and rude.
In spite of Darcy's growing love for both the brothers, she is determined to leave Cold Creek and find her brothers, held captive by the Scythe. Her journey makes up the bulk of this satisfying and sexy story from a master storyteller.
