Shaman Aiyanna has waited a long time for her chosen mate to be ready to join her, but she has learned to have patience about the matter. When she rejected the idea of Jason initially, the Great Mother forced her over a span of six human years to stand helpless in the portal between their dimensions and watch while Jason committed himself to a human realm mate. It had both surprised and hurt Aiyanna to see him happy with the woman, but it had also been illuminating about his character. When his human mate dies, Aiyanna finds herself grieving deeply for Jason's pain and loss. Willing to do anything to relieve his suffering, but forbidden to intervene. Aiyanna is grateful when her spirit brother Kiell offers to help. The last thing she ever expected was that the tribal council would send Kiell back to retrieve Jason before the Great Mother gave Aiyanna permission to contact him. Now Jason hates her for his destiny and there is little she can do but try to find a way to release him.

Jason Cloud is left reeling after his wife's murder and prays for help in finding her killers. He doesn't know that he is being observed from an ascend realm populated by Chileaans. Jason is destined to one day become the mate to Chileaan Shaman Aiyanna. Her heart breaks over his tragic loss and suffering as she watches him from afar but is unable to intervene. His prayers are answered when Aiyanna's spirit brother comes to his aid and helps Jason track down the killers.
Aiyanna is determined to allow Jason to ascend to her at his own rate, but the tribal council has other ideas and brings Jason into their realm in order to further their Shaman's ascension. Jason must come to grips with the loss of his wife, the bond he feels with Aiyanna, and his own place in Chileaan society.
The Shaman's Mate ensnared my attention from the start. It was a wonderfully told story of loss and the strength that comes with moving forward. It is set in a paranormal world with the ascend Chileaan culture, but is also peopled with other tribes ascended from beings not of human nature. McDonald does a wonderful job writing the growth of Jason and Aiyanna's relationship.
The Shaman's Mate was a true pleasure to read and it would make a great addition to your to be read list!
