Summary: Kalya has loved Rasik since they were children, and that love has followed them into adulthood. The only problem is he’s a caracal shifter, while she’s an omnimorph—a shifter capable of morphing into any animal on the planet of A’ata. Coveted and resented for centuries, her people stick to themselves and keep their abilities a secret. But when Kalya’s young cousin and Rasik’s brother run away together, she and Rasik are thrown together as they chase after them. Across the wilds of A’ata, they confront hostile shifters, perilous terrain, and a passion that could reveal all their secrets. Can shifters from two different tribes become mates? Or will nature and their families keep them apart?
Review: Easy, fun, interesting read. At first I wasn’t too thrilled with the otherworldly aspect, but I quickly forgot about that and settled in for the adventure. Interesting and likeable characters (hateable bad guys), andsome mystery. I liked the different shifters, but a little overwhelmed trying to follow all the tribe names and what they are. The time to get to the youngsters didn’t seem to match as well with the time for them to get back, but I was ready to overlook that point.
This starts with the two main characters (Rasik and Kayla) fighting their attraction, then a big adventure comes along that mixes with that attraction. It was a fun journey and kept you on your toes with an interesting end to the journey. The battle was a little short and I would have liked a little more conclusion, but it was a ending that fit the two characters.
There is a lot of sex, but it fit into the story. The wording was different to read. It wasn’t the fluffy names and language that you often get in books, wasn’t graphically described, but also wasn’t written as though the author was afraid to write a body part name. It was almost textbook-like.
It read like a standalone book, but I’d give another book about these characters a try
