I liked the book quite a bit. I had no particular issues with the writing or problems following what was going on. I thought it did a good job of moving the Breeds series forward (while giving some backstory of the Breeds and Breed politics); and that it was the beginning of an interesting new story arc. LL raised a lot of good new possibilities of ways to play out the direction of the series in the future. Diane was a good h; she was very different from most of the h's, she actually thought for herself and was pretty kicka**. She didn't take crap off of anyone, even Lawe. She proved that in the climax of the story. This story runs concurrently with the ss 'An Inconvenient Mate' from the anthology Tied With a Bow. While not necessary to read that novella first, I'm glad I did; I found it gave me prior knowledge to some things that a few readers have found confusing. (The ss took place completely in Window Rock). The book demanded your attention, and that's what I liked best about it. There was a lot of action, and a lot going on. It was different and fresher than her last few books. The mating heat made a comeback in this one, but that's part of the Breeds genetics; it's a big part of the series and one of the reasons why we read it. The alpha male claiming his mate. I loved the sneaky way Rule made Lawe jealous enough to finally claim Diane. I also liked meeting up with some old favorite couples, and LL introduced some fascinating new characters. I really hope to read more about Gideon. And Dog...he had a small part in this one. Both of these Breeds have plotlines to play out in the next arc of books of the series.

Liegh jumped the story mid-point into Lawe & Diane's relationship without at least a prolog to explain how they came to know they were mates. The prolog discribing Lawe's horrific past was beyond brutal leaving one wondering how he or his brother Rule could possibly function with any social setting let alone a romantic relationship. However, the story was enjoyable. Diane's charactor of a strong, independent, intensely loyal and protective of her sister and infant niece was spot on for the past glimpses as a supporting charactor. I was not happy with the digression of Rachel's charactor from a strong young mother who fit well with the single most difficult, manipulative, and potentialy explosively dangerous Lion Breed. Here Rachel is depicted as a whiny, self involved twit who couldn't recognize let alone control how her reactions to her infant's condition adversly affected the child emotional health. We are then to believe Rachel could suddenly pull her act together to expertly manipulate a room full of highly alpha Breed men. While the relatioship resolution was rather sudden it was still sweet. However, there was no other plot advancement or resolutions which I found frustrating and unfulfilling. By far the best two instalments were Coyote's Mate and Mercury's War. These two books clearly show Liegh can produce excellent work when she wishes. So, when she instead offers rushed and incomplete stories it is a disappointment leaving a somewhat ripped off sensation when finished. Come on Liegh, I know you can do much better. Please advance the storyline to provide some resolution!

    Not her best work

    I'm a huge Breed's fan. I have every book and rate most of them 5 stars. However, I'm really struggling with this one. It's rare that I don't read a breed book cover to cover in my first sitting, but this one I have been picking up and putting down for almost two weeks. I attribute that to the fact that the book seems to play the same conversation over and over. He wants to protect and she wants independence. Unlike other books, there is not a lot of emotional development in the relationship. What I think could have been one of the most emotional scenes is only a reference in the book. I'm referring to Lawe's rescue of Diane in Syria. I'm close to finishing this book but looking forward to a more satisfying read in the next one.

    Disappointed

    I have read all the books in this series. I've loved everyone. However, Lawe's Justice left me feeling very disappointed. The book seemed to bring in future story lines and pieces that just didn't complete or fill out. Lawe and Rule are now brothers? The book touched on Lawe having to deal with his painful past but it never happens. I was left confused and wondering where things would follow through in others. I found wolf traits that are now a part of the felines. I'm not sure if Ms. Leight was rushed to reach a deadline, but, I felt the story could have been much better. The story lines have always been well written and I don't feel this one was. It felt disjointed to me.
    So many story lines to be explored in this book,but the main one left me with the feeling that it wasn't complete. :( I feel let down. I preordered this book with great anticipation.
    I hope that Ms Leigh can focus on complete some of these open story lines. The characters have come to life in her writing and seeing Jonas, Rachel and Amber's story continue would be great. As well as Cassandra's and perhaps now the new characters who are coming up, but hope the formers are handled first.....

    Worst of the series so far

    Lawe's Justice. Breeds #26

    If you're a series addict like me, then nothing anyone says is going to dissuade you from buying this. But allow me to say in advance ...I told you so!... There were only 2 posted customer reviews when i bought this and they both give it 1 star and a very bad write up. I should have listened.

    This latest instalment in the Breeds series is quite possibly the worst one in the series to date.
    The plot line was there, it even had potential. It just never went anywhere. None of the action/adventure plot lines finished and Lawe & Diane's romance lacked the fire of many of the other titles. They just talked it to death.

    We had; Lawe and Diane discovered they were mates more than a year earlier, but Lawe just wandered off to la-la land somewhere and didn't persue it. It wasn't until Rule (his twin brother) decided if Lawe didn't want a warrior for a mate, then he'd claim her, cause his mate is all girly and he doesn't want her. ...and whats with that? We've been told for the last 25 books that Mates are the best thing in the universe, and here we have 2 characters who don't want their mates?

    We had a breed gone feral whose killing council scientists by vivisection,(autopsied alive) (which, incidentally is a word which does not fit well into a story when used more than once or twice). Because he was killed that way, I think it was 3 times?

    He's trying to find a girl whose blood saved his life when he was a younger. He wanted to die, she foiled him because she wanted him to live. Good a reason as any to want to kill someone, I spoze. I wouldn't be too surprised if when this finally plays out we will discover they are mates.

    Even though he's feral and killing all these people, he still saves Mates whenever he needs to. The "tortured bad guy" thing usually sucks me right in, but it wasn't well written in this book and really didn't grab my heart strings.

    This same girl holds the key to Jonas & Rachel's baby girl's life after the injection Brandenmore gave her in Lion's Heat. But that story line didn't end, even though it was the main action/adventure story line.

    There were several other plot lines to give it action/adventure, but nothing ever went anywhere, they didn't end, they all just fizzled out.

    When I finally got to the end, on literally the last page, after all the air went out of the story and it withered up and fell to the floor(& I breathed a sigh of relief that I'd finished it). Jonas detects a scent, and grins! And we'll have to wait until LL persues it in some future book. How much do you want to bet, it's not the next one!

    All in all, unfinished. She could have cut out most of the repetitive sex scenes and used the space to tie up all the other plot lines.

    Great world but weak book

    This is a middle of the roaf book for this series. Once again the plot takes a backseat to the sex. The ending is weak and makes the book feel incomplete. I only keep reading this series for the actual plot which only takes up about a third of the book.
