A wonderful entertaining read that takes us on a journey to a new world where soldiers are falcon shifters and women rule the planet because they are less volatile and of course more rational(supposedly). Even though this is a novella it was packed with a lot of story, background and history of the main characters and development of this new paranormal magic Scifi world, including a look into the culture and rituals. The story centers on the ceremony of the Princess who must now take a mate as it is time the crown is passed on to her. She must take a mate which is chosen for her when she must take a secret drink from a special Chalice. When she wakes it will be with her mate and the future king who will support and rule by her side. The princess is a bit flustered as her childhood tormentor and secret crush has returned for the ceremony after many years away. Will he be the one the chalice chooses despite the history of no purebred shifters becoming king for many many many years? An entertaining, quick read with an enchanting Romantic storyline with some hot steamy scenes that will transport you to an exotic magical land. Hope there will be more in this series.
It was time for princess Ari to that the throne and to pick a mate. She chose to drink from the sacred chalice and have magic pick for her. One sip would put her to sleep and transport her to the mating circle. When she awoke her mate would magically be by her side. BUT of all the men it could have picked from did it have to be him? Commander Rurik of the fifth and a natural born falcon shifter. As a boy he always picked on her. How could this be happening lol Yea that's the set up! Great storyline. Any shifter fan is going to fall for this one. The only problem is it was over to fast as is with any great story you just want more! I sooooo hope she does a series on this I would love it. Book gifted for an honest review and I honestly loved it.
Princess Ari about to succeed her father as ruler, there is just a small matter of a mating ceremony to get out of the way. The decision is out of her hands as the chalice will select the most suitable mate for her. Commander Rurik has a long and complicated history with Ari. They played together as children and a crush on both sides led to childish pranks and hurt feelings. Ari took it one step further and has recently been sending Rurik and his soldiers on more and more dangerous missions!!! As a pure born Falcon, he can't be her mate, pity the chalice doesn't see it that way!! This a short, fast paced read. It's not my favourite in this series as I found Ari a bit childish and just couldn't understand why she didn't realise her actions were putting Rurik and others in danger in retaliation for what she thought he wanted! However it's still a great read and I'm looking for the next book ASAP!!!
Remember in school when a little boy used to tease the heck out of you? Remember how annoyed you were but secretly kind of liked it? Well, Commander Rurik and Princess are all grown up now and despite what they say about the other, neither is willing to admit how they really feel. The time has come for Princess to rule as Queen and take a mate to rule by her side. In this world the choice is not hers but predetermined. Guess who, however with the custom of their first mating will she even know the gorgeous Falcon born shifter is the man beside her? And if so how will they react? This is a charming story of love and growth. Both have grown up since their childish pranks, but will they give themselves a chance for more? As always, I am in love the the characters and could not put the book down. Ms Pillow has a way of building worlds that a may be different with strange customs, but with characters who always draw the reader. A 5 star recommend. I was provided an ARC for an honest review.
