Not like the other Breeds books............
on 11 August 2007
Whilst this book does tie in with the rest of the Breeds books, the characters are less developed and less sympathetic than in the other books. Breeds are supposed to immediately recognise their Mates, with the male being a typical Alpha, but here, Tanner seems softer than the other males. He's watched his mate having menage and straight sex with 5 other guys over the last 10 years, and never once made a move on her, yet we're supposed to believe that immediately they get together, he realises that she's the one for him. Also, she was pregnant, had had the baby aborted against her wishes, yet she does not appear traumatised by this, and in fact seems rather cold. Overall it was an ok read, and Dawn's Awakening (2008 publication) is introduced, and at first glance appears to be a better read. Tanner's Scheme for me is a read-and-sell-on book, rather than a keeper like the 3 Elloras Cave Breeds books.
