Christine Feehan is like a box of your favourite chocolates - sweet, a guilty pleasure and you know what you are getting before you open the box. You rely on an entertaining story where everything turns out OK in the end and you get to see some favourite characters from previous books
With this in mind, Leopard's Prey doesn't disappoint and it is a welcome return to form after Dark Storm (which for me was a poor unbelievable story - and that is saying much bearing in mind these books are fantasy).
Why the 3 star rating? Firstly other of Christine's books are better stories. However, more importantly judged against better fantasy authors, I'm afraid Christine will never reach a five star (which I reserve for truly outstanding fantasy books such as Lord of the Rings).
That said, it is worth reading and there are times when after a hard day all you want is to curl up with a box of chocolates and an entertaining undemanding read. If that is what you want, the book is a 5 star!!!
