Roane has come to the town of Tranquility to be among other shifters, but he doesn't want to cause trouble. He doesn't want to challenge Marcus, the pack leader, he just wants to be left alone. But because he's a natural alpha, his mere presence is stirring things up, especially with the local females. Scarlett, sister to the pack leader, is drawn to Roane. What will be stronger, her loyalty to her brother or her desire? Is a good leader born or made?
There are still problems with grammar, but nothing a good editor couldn't fix. The story is still very steamy, but this time the heat builds instead of just slapping you in the face. You get more character development as the sexual tension simmers. Minor characters are still a bit two dimensional or else caricatures. Again, this story could easily be spun out into a full-length novel. Time/scene transitions aren't marked consistently by the use of asterisks, which is a bit disconcerting. And you have to suspend logic a bit more than I'd like when you have naked and bloody shifters running around a non-shifter town in broad daylight with nobody noticing a thing. But it's still a fun read.
He didn't think things could get any worse until he gets a glimpse of the alpha's sister, Scarlet. Now he will do anything to touch, and make her his mate. Scarlet really tries to stay away from him, but his very touch burns her like flames.
This story had the bones to be more, but it held its own, unlike its predecessor Fury (OtherKin). This time there is a little more emotional development between the characters before the sex begins. I still wish there had been more background, but as it was, it was still better than Fury (OtherKin), and it makes more sense. Recommended for those who love erotic shapeshifter romance. Highly recommended.
That being said, I liked the concept of the shifters, of being a Shadow, of the OtherKin in general. I enjoyed Roane, who is the brother of Merrick, the hero from FURY. When Roane realized that Merrick and Nikki (the werecougar who the elders of Fury had chosen as Queen) already had chemistry, he stepped aside and left town so as not to have to fight his fellow Alpha brother for the rule.
Now, Roane has moved to Tranquility, wanting nothing but to have a home with a pack and be left alone. He doesn't want to be the Alpha of the Tranquility pack, but the fact that he's recognized Scarlet as his mate is causing problems. Namely, that Scarlet is the sister of Marcus. And Marcus is the current alpha leader who hates Roane's guts. But, as always seems to happen, hot sex ensues, followed by the inevitable HEA filled with more hot sex.
Just as I said with FURY, I did enjoy the concept of the story, and I probably would have moved that to REALLY liked if not for two things. One, although I recognize the "I-just-met-you-but-want-to-sex-you-up-now" plot device, especially in stories involving shapeshifters who seem to "recognize" their mates upon meeting, just a tad more introduction before the horizontal tango would have been nice. And secondly, Holy Smokes, Batman!, this story badly needed an editor before it went up! I know Ms. Bast has published a bunch of stories through large-name publishers, but due to the lack of editing, I'm guessing this wasn't one of them.
So overall, a great concept, just as FURY was, and I'd definitely be interested in reading a full-length novel or novella starring the OtherKin. Yet on the other hand, the horrible execution of this short tale kept me from loving it like I wanted to.
Again, there could have been a lot of story here, there was a lot of potential that could have made this book so much better.
Because it was such a short story it just moved much too fast. Personally I feel like she could have left out the two of them saying I love you to each other and it would have had more of an impact. Or maybe if the story had been more specific in how long he had been there.
In these types of books, I’m alright with the couple saying those three words almost right after getting together but, that’s when they’ve known each other for a good bit. That’s just me though.
A few typos and I stand by the statement I made in Fury, it applies here as well.
It was written a little more simple than Fury but I guess that’s to be expected with such a short story.
It was okay, these two books could probably be used as a quick kill time method, a filler for waiting somewhere, or even if you want a quick read to fall asleep to.

Miss bast is just the best. I would love to read more from her as a full length book. The short stories are great, but I think a full length story would be even better.Published 18 months ago by Unknown
