Read the full review (with spoilers) in Night Owl Reads

Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book from the author as part of the virtual book tour. I was not paid to read or review this book. All opinions are my own and was never influenced by anything or anyone.

Savage was an interesting read. It explained a lot of things about the story and the background was laid out one after the other. We are reading the story in Christian's first person point-of-view as it revolves around him and his experience when he moved from Denmark to Florida for his medical studies in the 80s. He was taken in by a wealthy family who welcomed him to their home with open arms.

Christian's future in Florida seemed to be heading in a promising direction until that incident that changed his life forever. Sulking in his thoughts and wallowing in self-pity, he wanted explanations with how he survived, if there is any rational explanation for what happened.

The writing was pretty good, you could tell it was researched well, although I think it was laid out too much. Like Christian, I wanted more of Aiyana. She is just so mysterious and I wish we could see her point-of-view as well. The sexual situations were mostly mild. A little bit of description but not much heat in it. Still would not recommend it to teens under 16. I wish there was more about the strange family of women, and I also found the ending quite sad because they chose a more "sensible" path. Maybe we would find out why in the next book, I am intrigued with how that would pan out.

I haven't read much shape-shifter stories to compare this one with, but I enjoyed reading and am looking forward to the rest of the series.

I found the storyline unique but rather shallow. It fell far short of what it could have been. I found myself wishing it would soon end long before it did. Along about the 3 /4 point it seemed the author had something else to do so just slapped a couple quick scenes together and ended it. Thank goodness.

The grammar and sentence structure would have flunked any college student out of freshman English! Over and over the narrator and the characters spoke like middle class white collar workers rather than the doctorate level professional class they were supposed to be.

I was disappointed.

This book and premise looked promising and the reviews were mainly positive. Just by this book alone, I would not read any other books by this author.

Like many have said, it was slow going in the beginning. I almost stopped at 20% into the book, but kept going since others said it would pick up. Several other times I kept looking, OK I'm at 30%, 40% etc...when does it get better? I should have taken it as a sign that if I kept checking how far I was into the book that it wasn't going well.

There is no depth to the characters. I don't think this is a spoiler but I will say this...the main character is a "city boy". Oh...and the author said that several times throughout the story. After the 3rd or 4th time...I was like...OK, I got it...he's a city boy! And this main character was mainly a talking head. I this, I that, I, I, I...over & over again. After several "I's" in a paragraph, then you get the "but X will be changed forever in the near future". I really dislike being handed a story bit vs. the story just playing out.

I didn't care what happened to the main character or most of the others too. Christian was a poorly drawn male lead. (So poor that it's hard to tell that he IS a male lead.) We also were told how he broke women's hearts and had a winning smile to win them over. Don't know why anyone would be interested in him. Don't know why Jim hung out with him, why Heather liked him etc. Jim & Heather were shallowly written people too. Why did they do what they did? What type of life were they living? Why did I even finish this book since I didn't care? Too many times the only way the story progressed was to have 2 characters talking to explain the story. Just telling the story instead of experiencing and living it.

UPDATE - The sequel to this novel is available, Broken (Daughters of the Jaguar #2) takes place 10 years later and will answer a few questions.
--------------------------------

After finishing Savage (Daughters of the Jaguar) I had to sit back and kind of soak in what I had read. This is Paranormal Romance by genre but it was actually something a bit more as it tends towards trying to impart the author's sense of morality to the reader in a very general sense. Let me be clear, if I feel an author has decided to get on their soapbox and tell me how to live/vote/make a "better" world in a book I read for entertainment, I usually follow that with a trip to the trashcan. I read this genre for entertainment not enlightenment, with that said this book did it subtly enough for me to overlook most of it and enjoy the story.

Christian is a recent arrival in the USA from Denmark; he is brilliant and shallow at the same time. His life, in addition to his academic prowess due to a photographic memory, has been a tale of women attracted to his good looks and cast aside due to his lack of ability to feel much on an emotional level due to facts that the book will provide. The book starts slowly, giving background and making you wonder if this book was accidentally placed in the wrong genre because it is pretty much story of a medical student going to live/work in Florida on the charity of others.
