this is a bril read in the sense that its not like other shifter/breed like book
the shifters are treated less than humans which is a new approach on these.
I brought this book and could not put it down and was quickly back on amazon and downloading the rest of the series.
All these books have great lead characters that have more to them then being shifters or helpless females.
Only downside ive got is that the next book isn't out yet so im back to searching for the next good read :)
I feel there's a pretty big difference between Pride Mates and Nalini Singh's Psy/Changeling series - even though both is about finding ones mate and conflict between races, the Singh's series kinda lifted its gaze above the mating/sex stuff and also had a damn good development in overall plot throughout the books, in addition to a great character cast. The heroes in Psy/Changeling were all different and so was their mates. In this Shifter Unbound series Sean is just another Ronan who's just another Liam and so forth. Same with the heroines. And it was several places it was mentioned how sassy Kim was or Elisabeth (Bodyguard) was - I don't want to be told, I want to read!
Lastly, I just want to express my surprise in how the quality of the writing and the story is so different from the MacKenzie series...it's almost like there was two different authors...In the MacKenzie series I felt the characters connecting beyond the physical. In the Shifter Unbound series they never really fell in love, not in a way that made me really feel it, even though they announce it all over the place how much they care about their mate. The backstory of the Shifter's is also somehow half-done, almost like Ashley just put it in there so that the characters had something to talk about...
This is what I class as a light read. Its not particularly short, but neither is it especially long and its not the sort of novel that gives me pause for thought. That said, its not bad, but not great. I'll avoid the synopsis as there are multiple versions available already.
This story focuses on two characters, Liam, a fae-cat shifter and Kim a laywer working on a high profile case trying to prove the innocence of a shifter accused of murder. Both characters have their quirks, least of which is Liam's rather strong Irish brogue - slightly overdone at times (in my opinion at least). Kim is not really a very memorable character to me, having only read the novel in full yesterday I had a bit of trouble making her stand out in my mind... Liam does, though not a whole lot more, but Kim completely fizzled out after about an hour.
The characters are not particularly strong and this isn't the best written novel either, its straight forward, simple to read and tries to keep the plot running, though I felt that at times it meandered a little.
A decent read for a slow afternoon but nothing amazing. If you like paranormal and shifter romance novels go for it.
Kim, a junior partner in a law firm has been tasked with the case of a shifter, Brian, who is accused of killing his human girlfriend, but he still has his collar on, and no-one is talking, so she takes a drive down to Shiftertown, to meet with pack third-in-command and bar-manager, Liam Morrissey.
Liam's father Dylan is the local pack leader, reporting to Fergus, a mad/sadistic/Hitler-style Breed ruler, and in line with hierarchy, people go to Liam with their troubles. Liam takes Kim into his house, and tries to help her with her enquiries, but gets a call and has to hustle her out of the area, but in order to protect her, under the guise of kissing her neck, he scent-marks her in order to keep other shifters away. Unfortunately, he hadn't counted on a feral-shifter scenting him on her and breaking into her house at night, but with his brother Sean, Guardian of the Sword, the feral killer is killed and Kim is taken into Liam's protective custody, which he doesn't let on about.Read more ›
