Overview

The ocean is on their side. But the fight is on land—and it’s about to get dirty.

Duals and Donovans: The Different, Book 4

Long held captive as the Agency’s secret weapon—a blind witch with visions—Meaghan has come to a line she refuses to cross. Rather than betray the infant “child of five bloods” to the Agency’s scientists, she chooses death. Except when she throws herself into the ocean, she doesn’t die. Her repressed water magic comes to life.

When the sodden, delirious witch drifts into Kyle’s arms, his otter dual instincts tell him to get her to the Donovans as fast as possible. Even though one particular surfer-dude Donovan broke his heart.

Declan Donovan continually kicks himself for pushing Kyle away, but his touchy combination of water, earth and lightning magic is too volatile, and Kyle wanted more than Deck was ready to give.

When they come together to help Meaghan control her new magic, it leads the Agency straight to the child of five bloods. They’ll have to dive head-first into total trust—in their magics, in themselves and in each other—to save the child and stop the Agency once and for all.

Warning: Contains an oceanful of sex between an ethereal blind heroine who swears like a pissed-off Marine, an overly serious otter shifter, a would-be beach bum who may be descended from a Norse god, in permutations as fluid as the sea – and themes of abuse and recovery.

Who doesn't love a good story? How about a good story with a twist you haven't seen yet? So when I tell you I found just such a story, you better believe I'm going to shout it out. If you follow me at all, you know I love my shifter stories, right? Everything I've read to date has been all about wolves, bears, big cats. Predators one and all. Well, hold on, because I'm here to tell you there's more to shifters than that. What about something that's cute and playful, say... otters? Yeah, Roberts gave us sea otters as shapeshifters. The thing that caught my interest was bringing together a blind witch, a playful sea otter shifter and a surfer running from his heritage, although admittedly it was the sea otter that grabbed me the hardest. I've peeked at the blurbs for the previous books, so I know this isn't the only time she's pulled out the unexpected for shifters. Our heroine is a blind witch who is also a powerful seer. The problem? Meaghan's been held captive most of her life and used for her visions. She is about to put her foot down after learning the Agency wants to use her visions to capture the "child of five bloods" for their own less than honorable purposes. Her solution is to escape and die, but that doesn't turn out quite the way she anticipated. Instead, she is saved by an otter and taken to safety to the Donovan's where an entirely new world is opened to her. (Cue dramatic music and evil doers.) A failed suicide attempt (to protect the innocent), a playful otter (who'd rather be a doctor) and a surfer (afraid to answer the call of his heritage) make for an interesting story. What I know of otters is very limited, mostly to how playful they are. She managed to convey otter characteristics very well. Roberts has given a different twist to my favorite aspect of the fantasy genre. The story moves quickly; there are absolutely no boring parts to wade through. Her writing is captivating and everything you could want from an author. All the expected elements of a good fantasy novel are there, plus a bit of mystery and romance to keep things interesting. Roberts' writing is impeccable and the editing spot on. I downloaded this book August 7 and finished it the same day (or rather, night). I literally had to find time in my running errands to pull into a parking lot to read more. That led to lunch out and reading some more. It was nearly midnight when I finally finished the story. The bad thing? I had to be up at 4a for work the next day. It was completely worth it though. She had me at the blurb and once I finished the book, I wanted the rest of them. Payday can't get here fast enough for me now. For her writing, editing, character development, suspense, well... everything, I'm giving her five stars.
