My Rating: 5 stars
Shifters dominate the human world, while lightbearers stay hidden away in their magically protected coterie. That is, until Olivia Bennett, princess of the lightbearers, is captured by the most powerful shifter of them all—Quentin Lyons, who believes that to kill a lightbearer is to inherit her magic.
His son, Tanner, doesn’t believe his father’s theory. In the ultimate betrayal, Tanner rescues Olivia and vows to return her to her home. Along the way, he discovers two other lightbearers who have left the safety of the coterie, not to mention an attraction to the lightbearer princess that becomes increasingly more difficult to ignore with each hour he spends in her company.
The attraction makes no sense. Lightbearers and shifters have been mortal enemies since the dawn of time. He’s supposed to feel the urge to kill her, not…well, you know.
Despite shifters who are out to kill them and lightbearers who don’t trust them, Tanner and Olivia decide to take the chance and give in to their mutual attraction, only to discover that Olivia’s destiny has been predetermined, and it doesn’t include her shifter lover. They must decide if they are willing to risk it all, or if they can walk away from true love for the sake of the lightbearer species.
Ms. Lund uses the unique elements of action, magic, love, death, shifters, and sex to make an original and great story!
The author drops you right into the thick of things. Olivia is captured by Quentin, and Tanner is caught in the middle of Quentin’s delusions of grandeur that only Olivia’s death can provide. Tanner and Olivia are thrust into a race for their lives. Olivia must get home for her safety, and Tanner is her only hope.
Tanner and Olivia’s story is a story of forbidden love and overcoming the huge obstacles in their path along the way. Every turn has you rooting for this alpha yet loving hero and his smart, gifted heroine along with their new ragtag pack.
As the story unfolds, the author keeps you coming back for more. She did an excellent job of weaving the tale of the two different species of shifters and lightbearers, their myths and beliefs of each other, their prejudices toward each other, and their attempt to overcome these preconceived notions.
Once you finish reading this book, don’t be surprised if you are impatiently waiting for book #2!
