All three novellas in the box set are full of adventure and suspense. I love how the author threaded the forbidden romance through the stories. The world building was executed well and I was able to view the scenes like I was there. Christy was a strong heroine that may have made a few poor choices but she owned it, making her the leader the island needs. Ronan and his secrets were a bit irritating but you come to understand why he’s made the choices he’s made over the years. Lots of twists and turns in this series that will keep you on your toes.
There were a few places that were rushed and could have used a couple more pages of detail and some scenes that shifted a bit abruptly but those issue don’t really detract from the story. I’ve enjoyed everything I’ve read by Tiffany Shand, and the Shifter Clans box set was no exception. Fast-paced, full of energy, and written with emotion, I had a hard time putting down such an engaging series.
As the story continues, Christy finds out many things that has to do with her past and the past of her ancestors. When Ronan and she come together, Christy runs from what she knows to find someone she's lost. The books ends again in a cliffhanger.
The final book emerges and the end of the curse is complete. Christy will miss those she lost in the battle but a new life begins with peace.
Since her birth, Christy Daine has been hunted and on one occasion kidnapped. It is for those reasons that she was sent to London to live amongst the humans in order to keep her safe. During this time, she has been guarded by Ronan, a shifter who was not originally part of pack Stargaza but a mongrel who swore loyalty to that pack.
Christy is now almost twenty-five years old, which is coming of age in the shifter clan Stargaza. Once she comes of age she has been promised to Beta Alec, from the Imperious pack. Christy’s alpha, who is also her dad, has arranged this marriage in the hopes of strengthening his pack. Alec wants Christy for his own nefarious reasons.
There is a curse that was brought upon all shifters by a past alpha. This curse is one that prevents the shifters from using their magic. Once they all used to have magic but now using it is outlawed. No one until Christy has been immune to the curse and she has to hide that she has full use of her magic. It was use of her magic in defense of herself that brought her back to her father prematurely. Christy has no desire to go back because that means that she will have to be mated to Alec.
Ronan and Christy have been together for years and over that time have developed feelings for each other. Christy wants to mate with Ronan but Ronan refuses. He knows that Christy is engaged to another and even though he does not agree with the choice he respects the Alpha. He also does not believe he is good enough for Christy as he is in truth a mongrel.
Christy is just tired of everyone making decisions for her. Even Ronan, who she loves, will not be truthful with her about his feelings or his past. Fed up with the choices being made for her, she decides to take her future into her own hands.
This was a fast read with plenty of action. There is a chemistry between Ronan and Christy that feels authentic. I definitely am on board with their feelings of extreme dislike for Alec. He is a horrible shifter and I want Christy to get as far away from him as possible.
Christy’s family is gone, killed by Alec after he realized that Christy was not going to marry him. She has been taken to the mongrel encampment and there she has to prove that she wants to work together with them to free Ronan and stop Alec from killing them all. In order for that to happen Christy had to learn about her past and in the process discovered part of Ronan’s past. It is also in this story where we learn more about the curse that has affected the shifters for the past few centuries.
Christy is also the last of the Daine bloodline, with her father dead she has become an alpha ascending as only she can become the true alpha. For this to happen she needs to have a true understanding of how the shifters were cursed as well as have her true mate by her side. Too bad he is still very unwilling to take that leap. Ronan does not want Christy to mate with him as an obligation. Time is running out for the shifters. Christy and Ronan have to break down the barriers that exist between them and Ronan’s full past must be told.
In this book, we learn more about the secret relationship that has been taking place between Christy and Ronan. I think these two characters are so cute. Christy is an all-in, let’s tell it to the world kind of girl where Ronan is more about keeping it secret and keeping her safe. He is just never willing to cross “that line” because he is afraid of the long-term consequences. It is not until he is pushed beyond all reason to protect Christy that he makes a declaration that will seal his doom.
The Alpha’s Curse
Everything has come to a head. Christy and Ronan has finally unlocked their power but still need to learn how to use them. Turns out that there is more to Alec and Oren’s plan than anyone had ever anticipated. Also, the reason for Oren’s hate has become apparent and it goes way back into the past, back before the Alpha was cursed.
What I wished for more of was the details. I felt that some of the scenes were not as detailed as they could have been and that some of the transitions were abrupt. There were also backstories and characters that could have been further developed. I wanted to know more and understand more but I am also a details person.
Overall, I found these short stories to be quite enjoyable. The storyline was consistent through each story and there was a real flow between them. I felt that all of the characters were authentic and that the story itself was quite unique. I loved the whole paranormal shifters meshed with a star-crossed lovers romance angle. It absolutely held my interest throughout all three books.
This review is based on a complimentary book I received from Author, Tiffany Shand. It is an honest and voluntary review. The complimentary receipt of it in no way affected my review or rating.
