Cullen with his recessed animal genetics was a great character to add to this series and his mate Chelsea was not a simpering woman. I felt like the writing in this book brought the series back to the original books and the hot mating heat romances. Many of the last books were somewhat confusing, and went left field from the main groups at Sanctuary, Haven and Citadel. This book I felt like tied up a lot of loose ends from the last few books, which I was happy about and I felt like I new more about the connection to the reservations and other characters that have been written about from that area. Loved the romance between Cullen and Chelsea, it was a hotter mating heat than we have had lately and I loved the burn!
While I liked this book, I did see a couple of minor type-os that were a little distracting. Also, in the previous books, it didn't seem that Cullen and his twin the infamous Gideon/Graeme were as close as she made them out in this story. It was a little confusing. IF you're a Lora Leigh fan, a Breed Series fan or a paranormal fan you'll want to read this one. Best part is the teaser for the next book in the series, but we'll have to wait probably another year until we get to read it.
The breed books vary in in terms of strength of the writing, emotional appeal, and story lines. Personally some are forgettable, others come up a bit short, but when Leigh hits her stride, you are left breathless. This is what keeps you coming back. Unfortunately for me "Waking a Sleeping Tiger" is in the forgettable category. A disappointment deep to my soul because I was expecting something different and daring in this book. In "Bengal's Quest" we were teased with intriguing changes to the mating heat, a widowed Bengal breed so deeply recessed that for all purposes he was human, a supposedly dead mate, and a breed mated to one brother but in love with another. WTH?! So many interesting avenues to pursue. But instead we got Chelsea. Perhaps one of the most lack luster heroines I have come across in this series. She felt like she was created from bits and pieces of other female leads and not necessarily the good parts. Whereas I understood her insecurities I found her weakness, fear of asking the tough questions, and immediate yielding to Cullen just annoying. Her concerns were raised mostly through internal dialogue and when she did get around to confronting Cullen, he would immediately shut her up with sex. Her submission was immediate and knocked her IQ somewhere around the amoeba level. Her only act of real defiance was turning in her resignation which of course triggers Cullen's inner beast. Not an act of peril or harm. Just that he can no longer watch her and keep her safe. Oh yes , I almost forgot, she wanted to fight next to Cullen and not be protected because being in danger and acting recklessly is who she is. Frankly as the story progressed my apathy towards Chelsea just grew. She never acted as a woman closer to thirty than twenty. Rather than a confident young woman, who had some uncertainties about her relationship. She comes across as the girl that is willing to live with the guy and submit in the hopes that he will fall in love. Even worse, she is willing to take what she can get. We are repeatedly reminded of her positive attributes, her extensive training, and her courage. But is that not a given in the work she craves? Otherwise what is the point? She is a good warrior but a very insecure woman willing to short change herself with the man she loves. She wants to be respected and acknowledged as an equal with Cullen and her family but concedes to their whims. Even Cullen's interesting background took a back seat to Chelsea's issues and was never exploited to its full potential. He was rumored to be a very powerful breed once the inner animal was released but we never really saw that. Cullen's character development was more a reflex of his interactions with Chelsea,Graham, and typical alpha behavior we have come to expect. The character felt incomplete,slighted, and relying on past patterns of breed behavior. The Bengal breed is supposed to be unpredictable, dangerous, and a non conformist making him unique.
What saved this story for me was Graham's notes, Gideon's madness, some funny moments, and a brilliant epilogue that I cannot wait to see unfold.
