THE STORY: In the middle of the night, Tiger gets the feeling that someone needs him and takes off. But his mate is not allowing him to endanger himself alone again and insists on going along. Tiger knows that someone, somewhere needs him and he has to go.
OPINION: I love when novellas in a series have a purpose. This one definitely is a must read in the series as it has some big secrets that are revealed. But what I love most is the characters of Tiger and Carly who already make such a loving unit.
I love Tiger because he is so honest and centered. He doesn't have the instincts or interest in deception so we always know exactly what he thinks and feels based upon his viewpoint. This story turns that on its head for a while when we don't understand his actions, but (of course) everything is neatly explained in the year.
The story is centered around the big reveal so I won't go into that because it would be a spoiler, but I did love seeing how Tiger and Carly relate to one another as a settled couple and Conner is a cutie.
The story has some action and drama and I loved seeing all the Austen Shifters again. The nice thing about this story is that it has consequence for the series and the characters.
And what is truly to love about this story are the characters. Ashley has created a whole society filled with multi-dimensional characters so their cameos here all have consequence and a nice homecoming feel.
I recommend this novella for everyone who is a fan of the series.
WORTH MENTIONING: We get to spend some time with Conner Morrissey as well. I hope we get to see him more in the series.
CONNECTED BOOKS: TIGER STRIPED is book 11.5 in the Shifters Unbound series. This novella is an update on the characters of Tiger and Carly from TIGER MAGIC. I recommend reading that book first to get to know the characters.
STAR RATING: I give this novella 5 stars.
NOTE: I received an ARC of this novella from the author in order to prepare this review. I was not required to write a review or to write a positive review. All opinions contained herein are my own.
SOME BACKGROUND: Thousands of years in the past, the Fae created the shifters-a cross between beast and man-and in the ensuing time the Fae lost control and power over the battle creatures they had created for war. Approximately twenty years ago shifters were exposed to the human population. Out of fear, discrimination and specieism, the shifters were collared with Fae magic in the belief that it would control aggression; then they were forced into segregated communities known as Shiftertowns. There are several Shiftertowns located throughout America where shifters live in a relative but strained peace amongst their own kind.
Told from dual third person points of view (Tiger and Carly) TIGER STRIPED follows Tiger as he goes in search of someone or something. Awakened in the middle of the night by a psychic distress call; an unknown force he is unable to explain, Tiger does not hesitate to leave the warmth of his marital bed to hunt for the unknown. Not wanting her mate to walk into a trap, Carly does what come naturally and goes along with Tiger as he journeys towards the unknown. Along with Connor Morrisey, a young lion shifter who has stowed away in the back of his uncle’s truck, our trio crosses state lines, and risks reprisals from the Shifter Bureau, as Tiger continues to focus on his end goal. What ensues is a dramatic car chase with a darkened SUV, and a number of uniformed enforcers trying to protect what Tiger hopes to unleash.
TIGER STRIPED is a very quick read; a short story that reveals a little bit of Tiger’s past, and the ramifications of a controlled experiment that went horribly wrong. There is a little bit of everything: action, suspense, romance, betrayal and love. TIGER STRIPED is a must read for fans of Jennifer Ashley’s SHIFTERS UNBOUND.
Carly seems like an amazing woman but the way she gets Tiger and is able to love him as he is, and the strength that gives her to do his thing, is beautiful and fun to watch...
I just wish there had been more to this...at the end Ms.Ashley tells us this had been written to go in a short story that wasn’t meant to be,soo the length makes sense but with releasing this on it’s own I wish she lengthen it at least a little bit,with out giving away any thing ( I hope) the majority of this story 65-75% roughly is centered on Tiger,Carly and Connor off to rescue/save someone who has activated his kinda homing sense inside of him and he HAS TO go help...
And when he/they finally do the reveal is pretty big and at least foe me rather unexpected ...
But that’s what gets me...
The big reveal and rescue happens,they get out get home and it’s all over and while I can definitely see the one rescued playing a big part in some future story lines especially quite possibly Conner’s future story line,I just wish we could have had a little bit more ...
Good story but left me rather unsatisfied....
For me,it was more like just another step in “Shifters Unbound”series soo I know what’s going on more than anything else....
