Library JournalThe Falke family is back (after Falke’s Peak and Falke’s Captive), and this time it’s long-suffering, only daughter Heidi’s turn in the spotlight. Javier Montero is too busy tracking a snow leopard to realize his jaguar form is in the crosshairs of a local hunter. Heidi, the local vet, is called in to attempt to heal the fallen big cat. A female carrier of the family’s shape-shifting abilities, Heidi quickly realizes there’s more to the black jaguar than meets the eye and is intrigued by the newcomer. Javier, though, has only one goal in mind: revenge.
Verdict: The latest in the “Puma Nights” series from the writing duo of Keaton and Layle is enjoyable and a fun way to spend an afternoon. For those unfamiliar with the series, the paranormal take and the dynamics of the pack may be a bit confusing—or in the case of the dynamics, cold—but if readers stick with it, the rest settles quickly. Those who have enjoyed the two previous installments will be delighted to see familiar characters continuing to evolve. A great read for those looking for a steamy, shape-shifting romance.—Kellie Tilton, Univ. of Alaska Fairbanks Lib.
