Wonderful!  The Celta series is one of my favorite series.  I love the magic world, fated mates, various powers, and TALKING CATS!  They are funny. I also adore Owens' deft hand at writing character driven stories that tell the tale of real love when two very different people come together.    This is a marvelous older man/younger woman story as well as opposites attract. Some people find Winterberry's actions of keeping Trif at a distance troubling. I tend to think it is realistic in the dynamics' of their society and his reasoning for it.    I adore Trif. I love her music and sprit. Winterberry is a great hero. He gets a fox fam.  They both really grow as people.   The murder mystery plot of this one is good. A must read even if you don't follow the series.

Heart Quest if full of romantic tension, murder, and mystery. Readers will particularly enjoy how Robin Owens has woven fascinating secondary characters into Ilex and Trif¿s story. Right to the end, you¿ll wonder who lives, who dies, and who has been right all along - Trif or Ilex. A truly enjoyable read, a solid winner that will have you eagerly awaiting the next book in the Celta HeartMate series. It¿s always a pleasure to return to the magical inhabitants of Druida City and find out who will be next to discover their HeartMate.

On planet Celta detective Ilex Winterberry is frustrated, but his reason differs from most of his Druida City Guardsmen as he knows who his Heartmate is while many of his peers do not. His problem is that he has seen his death. Out of love he refuses to cost his beloved Trif Clover her soul by acknowledging her, as she would die when he dies. Instead he hides his feelings from her.----------------- As a serial killer puts fear in the residents of Druida City, Ilex learns his Trif decides to find her Heartmate. Thus while he investigates the homicides he keeps an eye on Trif, who is closing in on her man and will not accept anything less than his acknowledgement that they are Heartmates. If she dies because he died, so be it as she insists that it is her choice to die too.---------- The latest Robin D. Owens' Heart fantasy is a terrific police procedural in a science fiction setting. The clever whodunit stars an honorable male protagonist and a determined intrepid female. The story line is fast-paced with a strong support cast augmenting either Trif¿¿s quest or Ilex¿s investigation. Fans will cherish this fun entry while newcomers will go on a quest to find the backlist (see HEART CHOICE, HEARTMATE and HEART DUEL).--------------- Harriet Klausner
