This was an amazing book. I loved the characters, I was so drawn into their story. Does have an erotic scene but it was truely about love and soul mates. I will look for more of this author. :)Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

This was not the most well written book. Short, but hard to feel involved in the story. After reading mostly good reviews, I expected more. Definitely a disappointment. Good thing it was free because it wasn't worth paying for.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I love shape shifter stories. The idea of changing form and exploring the world has immense appeal. So when I read the blurb for Lindira, I knew I had to read the story. I mean, a shape shifting dolphin...how cool is that?
The story’s dark beginning sets the undertone and character arc for Lindira. The world she lives in is ruled by an evil wizard that wants all shifters eradicated. After watching her lover’s horrific death, she is abused, mutilated and left to drown.
Jese and his lover Von have been on an island for decades, suffering their own curse delivered by the same wizard. They’ve been changed into human/beast creations and can only be saved by a woman that loves them both physically—at the same time.
Lindira washes up on the island and Jese helps her recover. They learn about their different curses. Despite Lindira’s wish to join her lover in death, she decides to help Jese and Von break their curse as her last act before moving on.
As I stated before, I’m drawn to shifter stories. I really wanted to love this book, but I didn’t. I couldn’t connect emotionally with Lindira. Let me make it clear, I felt the tragedy she suffered. The disconnect seemed to come more from the aloof and detached personality Lindira had. As a dolphin, she didn’t care much for humans. Was really indifferent to them. Dolphins are playful, curious creatures. Lindira’s attitude didn’t translate from both sides of her nature.
Luckily, Jese stole the story. I loved his character. His caring and gentleness represented a good soul. His devotion to his partner Von, despite their forced captivity, showed a deep love and sense of integrity. Von’s character was also more compelling than Lindira. He showed tenderness and compassion toward Jese and Lindira, refusing to hurt either one of them.
I wish more of Lindira’s human characteristics had been evident at the beginning of the story. Each of us has levels to our emotions and personality. If I’d seen more from hers I would have connected with her character better. Thankfully, the book’s conclusion showed me a likeable side to Lindira. Her erotic connection to Jese and Von helped break the curse, and her emotional reaction finally showed a bit of human nature…the dual side of her psyche.
