Review posted on Books on Silver Wings blog.
3.5 stars rounded to 3
The story starts off with an introduction about Mikael and his pack. He's a half shifter and the alpha of a small farm. The story
delves into how he runs the farm and people respecting him as a alpha even though he cannot shift. No one knows his exact animal
excerpt that it's some sort of a cat. He picks up an injured tiger on his lands and offers food and shelter. Things are rosy until a
newcomer arrives at the farm intent to overthrow Mikael's control of the farm and takeover.
I love the shifter dynamics and the twist on shifter life. No one knows Mikael's animal because only shifters with the same animals
can sense each other and Mikael's animal is rare. I like Mikael's personality and his straightforwardness. He inherits the farm and
runs it well. He tries his best and his heart is always in the right place.
Max, on the other hand, is more of a loner and likes seclusion. It's difficult to see how he fits into the farm and shifter dynamics. At the
end of the book, Max mends some bridges with pack members and begins to see them as family. It's not explained why Max is
attracted to Mikael when Max is in his animal form, injured. The story hints that it's because they have the same animal and Max can
sense the familiarity. There is no concept of mate bonds in this shifter universe.
I enjoyed the HEA ending. It is well deserved for the characters and I can feel the triumph and budding relationship between Mikael
and Max. Max is starting to open up to Mikael and accept the farm as his home. The ending is sweet and satisfying to read.
I really enjoyed reading the story. It has everything a shifter fan likes and still brings a little something new into the story.
