Simon is the alpha of the local wolf pack. Taking care of his people is his right, and he's proud of what he has achieved. One night he goes into the forest because the children told him a wild tale of something that scared them. Something magical attacks him.
Gabriel is kidnapped by the pack to heal Simon. He realizes that Simon has fallen victim to evil magic and removes the curse. Knowing that the coven has found him, he knows he must move again.
Simon, when he wakes up, realizes Gabriel is his mate. He wants to claim him immediately, regardless of the animosity between wolves and witches.
What follows is a story of fated love, magical power, and evil witches. I wish it had been a little longer, the ending seemed hurried, it was a nice story and I liked it.
I loved how the author described the magic and how it worked in this story. I loved how the elements were used and how Gabriel faced choices with his power. I really liked the journey that Gabriel had to take and how he learned more about himself and his history.
Loved the story!
I have to say it was nice to see this author writing something a little longer than the stories I’ve read from her previously and I enjoyed every bit of it. :D Gabriel has lived his life on the run, constantly afraid of being discovered by the coven responsible for the death of his parents. His current home is practically perfect, the only downfall being the local werewolf pack, but he’s fully aware that werewolves and witches don’t get along so he goes out of his way to avoid them. That avoidance comes to an abrupt end, however, when he’s nabbed from his home and brought into the heart of the pack lands in order to try and heal the Alpha, Simon, who has suddenly collapsed and appears to be near death. Simon has no memory of what happened to him but the one thing he does know is that the witch that tended to him is his mate. It doesn’t matter if witches and werewolves aren’t supposed to mix, he wants Gabriel and will do whatever he needs to to convince him that they belong together. With the realization that the coven hunting for Gabriel is responsible for the attack on Simon, however, it will take more than just Simon’s determination to convince Gabriel to stay.
Like I said, I liked this one; I got a good feel for the characters and I felt the author did a good job portraying both the background animosity normally between the witches and wolves and the overlaying problem with the coven. Despite Simon being the Alpha and used to being in charge, it was great seeing Gabriel stand up and put his foot down, especially when Simon tried to order him around as if he were just another pack member. I honestly would have enjoyed seeing more time between Gabriel and Simon just getting to know each other but I also understand that with the threat of the coven becoming an even bigger concern and then moving into a real Problem, that it wasn’t exactly possible. Honestly, my only real complaint is that I never did get a good feel for when this book was supposed to be taking place; was it in the present or some time in the past? I kept finding various aspects of the book that could point one way or the other and it drove me a little batty by the end.
The ending of the story (in regards to the coven) was, quite frankly, a bit unexpected but worked really well for me. Everything was wrapped up fairly neatly in a good way and I wasn’t left feeling as though something was missing or that I had been gipped in some way. Not a lot of angst in this one but I didn’t really need that and this made for a good afternoon read. If you enjoy a lighter type of paranormal and enjoy mate stories you may want to give this one a look.
I am new to Riza Curtis but I am going to have to go online and look up her previous works. Rended Hearts is full of imaginary and characters. You have two really good men. Simon Head Alpha who for reasons unknown is attacked and found unconscious in the forest by his pack. Gabriel an informal medical practitioner or healer of sorts who lives in the village. In reality Gabriel is a witch always on the move, never standing out. For an unattached witch, drawing attention was never a good idea. Simon’s pack crazed about their Alpha, kidnaps Gabriel and takes him to the pack house for Gabriel to heal their Alpha. Gabriel finds that the Alpha doesn’t need healed as much as a curse lifted. And Simon discovers after Gabriel is gone and he has become conscious again that Gabriel is his mate. But true love does not run smooth. Apparently other witches have been looking for Gabriel for some time. They are not above using the wolves to get what they want from Gabriel. So, you have two good men who want to be together. And a bunch of witches who will do or hurt anyone or anything to get their way. And a lot of innocent villagers and wolves who are caught in the middle. There is a lot of detail in this book, helps you to understand the why’s and wherefores of the wolf and witch world. Definity worth a read, and a reread. Great book for the beach, train, just about any where you can take a minute and read.
