I love to read long series that follow the lives of several characters. This series is continuously growing with this book being the 13th installment and news of more books to follow, but the characters change and although all the new characters are brought in, a number of original characters are left behind and not refered to or heard about in the recent installments. Some of the characters i understand have nothing to do with the storyline and therefore to mention them would cause confusion but I believe it would be nice to hear more about them and what they are up to at the same time.
I also think that a couple of these installments are hinting at a bigger picture about certain organisations and individuals in this series but the readers are yet to find out what the bigger picture is and how it will be resolved. I hope that after introducing all the characters Felicity is able to bring them all together for a spectacular finale.
August, a snow leopard Alpha is taking a break from his tribe and crosses paths in London with Maya, a tiger shifter, en route to be delivered as a bride to a fellow tiger tribe. These two had so much potential and things were building nicely but the story lost momentum for me when they left London. All the scenes in the club with August and Maya and her brothers Grey and Talon, were smartly done but once that dynamic shifted, it did not engage me as strongly.
I was disappointed to not really feel Maya as a character. She seemed to lack personality and we were told often that she was strong but her wilful stubbornness in insisting on continuing on her path to becoming a stranger's bride was verging into overdone. By which I mean, her brothers both warn her against her future husband for absolutely legitimate reasons. They're not trying to control her but advise that this man is dangerous and yet she doesn't listen. This happens more than once.
Now, tradition is something that is often mentioned in this series, in various shades of light of dark, good and bad. And I do understand that a woman who has never left her tribe except for this one time feels a certain amount of honour towards tribe alliances and promises but it felt really unsatisfactory. Yes, she's strong but that doesn't mean she can't be smart and think of another solution, of something that doesn't involve self-sacrifice. "I am strong, I must do this" didn't work for me. And it delivers her to a grade A villain of a man who is one of the most unpleasant characters I've encountered in this series. Then we see Maya acting intelligently and actually being strong (rather than just having it said) but gosh, it's a grim situation for that to come about.
August for his part, was quite blockheaded also in not realising she was his mate. So they do match rather well in that they are both striving to do what is good for their tribes by being completely blind to obvious things! I kind of wish Cavanaugh had stopped by to offer more advice in this regard but his scenes with August were brief.
All that said, August and Maya were actually ridiculously sweet together. I love their interactions when they first meet and their encounter in that booth...well, fetch me a fan and some cold water, please. Despite the reservations I had above, on the whole I found that they were really enjoyable to follow along with as they found their way to each other and their happy ending.
I don't think you need to have read the other books in this series to enjoy this one, it will add to your experience if you have, but it definitely works a standalone if you just want to dip into a good shifter story. I give it a 3.5 stars rather than 3 (but I can't give half stars here).
I believe Felicity Heaton has another tiger story in store for us and I am very much looking forward to it.
Both characters are pretty oblivious to anything going on around them, apart from doing what they think is best for their packs. They were both strong in their own rights and I liked that about them both. I would definitely like to meet up with both characters again in future stories!
