Review by Lauren2013
Wren Tigarian is a rare hybrid white tiger/snow leopard Were-Hunter. An outcast from his clan, Wren finds refuge at Sanctuary, the bar owned and operated by the Peltier Were-Bears, but has never felt as if he belonged until he meets Maggie Goudeau. Unfortunately, just as they are getting to know each other, a devious plot against Wren threatens to destroy their new found love and they will have to trust each other if they are to survive...
One of the best in the series so far.
Wren & Maggie have an intense and sensual connection, but despite the immediate attraction of their initial meeting, their feelings slowly develop into true affection, trust and love. They bring out the best in each other and are very sweet and likeable. I particularly enjoyed the unexpected twist that enables them to be together.
Wren is shy and unassuming but has an inner core of amazing strength and courage as well as a profound sweetness and sensitivity. Maggie is intelligent and independent with the ability to see beyond surface appearances to the true person beneath. She is also quite fierce in her own way and
The rest of the plot is fast paced and exciting with numerous twists and turns. There is a lot going on - shapeshifting, time travel, a murder mystery, a death sentence, social conflict, prejudice, lust and love - but it all comes together quite seamlessly.
Additional highlights include the cameo appearances by previous Were and Dark Hunters as well as Wren's makeover scene with Aimee and the detail on Savitar's character.
Some issues that made this a 4.5 rather than a 5 star include the time travel plot device, which is somewhat contrived and a bit confusing, and the complete reversal of Nicolette Peltier's character
Overall, an excellent addition to the series and I'm on to the next one.
