If you've read the back of the book and been underwhelmed, just wipe that slate clean. I don't know who wrote that summary (fingers crossed that it wasn't the author, because, awkward!) but it doesn't do the story any justice. The bare bones setup is that Hari, a tiger shifter, has been imprisoned in a puzzle box for the last two thousand years and forced to serve as a slave for whichever master owns him at the moment. Dela buys the box not knowing what it is and finds herself bound to Hari when she opens it.
Let's pause it right there. I can already sense some of you rolling your eyes, but really, this story does not fall into familiar lines. Liu takes the clichéd setup and turns it into something tender and heartwarming.
Hari has been used and abused constantly throughout his time as a slave and he is not happy to have another master. Dela has a magical gift herself, but when she's dropped into this situation with Hari, she has a hard time swallowing it. They both have to find a way to make it work because even though Hari has a hard time believing in her, she can't stomach the thought of making the situation easier for herself by getting rid of him. She didn't want her life tied to some random stranger, but she can't turn away when she sees his suffering. Hari fears trusting her, but he can't keep himself from hoping that she really is different than all the rest.Read more ›
Dela Reese (Okies...I had a little stumble at the start because of the name is too similar to Della Reese the actress, but I quickly was able to get past that mental image because of the powerful writing) is a sculptor of metal. She uses this talent to create stunning weapons and statues. But she is not just a regular armourer, she is from a family of people with psi power. The "core family" uses their powers to combat forces of evil in the world. Dela is not so strongly gifted, so she pours her psi power into the creation of weapons. Having a deep love for swords and a collector of them myself, a character with the same passion really intrigued me.
Hari is a tiger (love the imagery). But like Dela he's more...much more. He is a shapechanger. Finally something besides werewolves...lol! An evil Magi bespelled him, and has kept him prisoner in a puzzle box. Dela is hunting antiques when she comes across the box. She releases Hari and now he is bound to her. Only her djinn from the bottle...hum box...is not a happy camper.Read more ›
