I liked the book quite a bit. I had no particular issues with the writing or problems following what was going on. I thought it did a good job of moving the Breeds series forward (while giving some backstory of the Breeds and Breed politics); and that it was the beginning of an interesting new story arc. LL raised a lot of good new possibilities of ways to play out the direction of the series in the future. Diane was a good h; she was very different from most of the h's, she actually thought for herself and was pretty kicka**. She didn't take crap off of anyone, even Lawe. She proved that in the climax of the story. This story runs concurrently with the ss 'An Inconvenient Mate' from the anthology Tied With a Bow. While not necessary to read that novella first, I'm glad I did; I found it gave me prior knowledge to some things that a few readers have found confusing. (The ss took place completely in Window Rock). The book demanded your attention, and that's what I liked best about it. There was a lot of action, and a lot going on. It was different and fresher than her last few books. The mating heat made a comeback in this one, but that's part of the Breeds genetics; it's a big part of the series and one of the reasons why we read it. The alpha male claiming his mate. I loved the sneaky way Rule made Lawe jealous enough to finally claim Diane. I also liked meeting up with some old favorite couples, and LL introduced some fascinating new characters. I really hope to read more about Gideon. And Dog...he had a small part in this one. Both of these Breeds have plotlines to play out in the next arc of books of the series.

Liegh jumped the story mid-point into Lawe & Diane's relationship without at least a prolog to explain how they came to know they were mates. The prolog discribing Lawe's horrific past was beyond brutal leaving one wondering how he or his brother Rule could possibly function with any social setting let alone a romantic relationship. However, the story was enjoyable. Diane's charactor of a strong, independent, intensely loyal and protective of her sister and infant niece was spot on for the past glimpses as a supporting charactor. I was not happy with the digression of Rachel's charactor from a strong young mother who fit well with the single most difficult, manipulative, and potentialy explosively dangerous Lion Breed. Here Rachel is depicted as a whiny, self involved twit who couldn't recognize let alone control how her reactions to her infant's condition adversly affected the child emotional health. We are then to believe Rachel could suddenly pull her act together to expertly manipulate a room full of highly alpha Breed men. While the relatioship resolution was rather sudden it was still sweet. However, there was no other plot advancement or resolutions which I found frustrating and unfulfilling. By far the best two instalments were Coyote's Mate and Mercury's War. These two books clearly show Liegh can produce excellent work when she wishes. So, when she instead offers rushed and incomplete stories it is a disappointment leaving a somewhat ripped off sensation when finished. Come on Liegh, I know you can do much better. Please advance the storyline to provide some resolution!

I'm a huge Breed's fan. I have every book and rate most of them 5 stars. However, I'm really struggling with this one. It's rare that I don't read a breed book cover to cover in my first sitting, but this one I have been picking up and putting down for almost two weeks. I attribute that to the fact that the book seems to play the same conversation over and over. He wants to protect and she wants independence. Unlike other books, there is not a lot of emotional development in the relationship. What I think could have been one of the most emotional scenes is only a reference in the book. I'm referring to Lawe's rescue of Diane in Syria. I'm close to finishing this book but looking forward to a more satisfying read in the next one.

Too many new characters that are unnecessary... she's losing her touch with writing, not her best

I have read all the books in this series. I've loved everyone. However, Lawe's Justice left me feeling very disappointed. The book seemed to bring in future story lines and pieces that just didn't complete or fill out. Lawe and Rule are now brothers? The book touched on Lawe having to deal with his painful past but it never happens. I was left confused and wondering where things would follow through in others. I found wolf traits that are now a part of the felines. I'm not sure if Ms. Leight was rushed to reach a deadline, but, I felt the story could have been much better. The story lines have always been well written and I don't feel this one was. It felt disjointed to me. So many story lines to be explored in this book,but the main one left me with the feeling that it wasn't complete. :( I feel let down. I preordered this book with great anticipation. I hope that Ms Leigh can focus on complete some of these open story lines. The characters have come to life in her writing and seeing Jonas, Rachel and Amber's story continue would be great. As well as Cassandra's and perhaps now the new characters who are coming up, but hope the formers are handled first.....

Lawe's Justice. Breeds #26 If you're a series addict like me, then nothing anyone says is going to dissuade you from buying this. But allow me to say in advance ...I told you so!... There were only 2 posted customer reviews when i bought this and they both give it 1 star and a very bad write up. I should have listened. This latest instalment in the Breeds series is quite possibly the worst one in the series to date. The plot line was there, it even had potential. It just never went anywhere. None of the action/adventure plot lines finished and Lawe & Diane's romance lacked the fire of many of the other titles. They just talked it to death. We had; Lawe and Diane discovered they were mates more than a year earlier, but Lawe just wandered off to la-la land somewhere and didn't persue it. It wasn't until Rule (his twin brother) decided if Lawe didn't want a warrior for a mate, then he'd claim her, cause his mate is all girly and he doesn't want her. ...and whats with that? We've been told for the last 25 books that Mates are the best thing in the universe, and here we have 2 characters who don't want their mates? We had a breed gone feral whose killing council scientists by vivisection,(autopsied alive) (which, incidentally is a word which does not fit well into a story when used more than once or twice). Because he was killed that way, I think it was 3 times? He's trying to find a girl whose blood saved his life when he was a younger. He wanted to die, she foiled him because she wanted him to live. Good a reason as any to want to kill someone, I spoze. I wouldn't be too surprised if when this finally plays out we will discover they are mates. Even though he's feral and killing all these people, he still saves Mates whenever he needs to. The "tortured bad guy" thing usually sucks me right in, but it wasn't well written in this book and really didn't grab my heart strings. This same girl holds the key to Jonas & Rachel's baby girl's life after the injection Brandenmore gave her in Lion's Heat. But that story line didn't end, even though it was the main action/adventure story line. There were several other plot lines to give it action/adventure, but nothing ever went anywhere, they didn't end, they all just fizzled out. When I finally got to the end, on literally the last page, after all the air went out of the story and it withered up and fell to the floor(& I breathed a sigh of relief that I'd finished it). Jonas detects a scent, and grins! And we'll have to wait until LL persues it in some future book. How much do you want to bet, it's not the next one! All in all, unfinished. She could have cut out most of the repetitive sex scenes and used the space to tie up all the other plot lines.

This book was absolutely horrible. I've read almost the entire series to this point, and really enjoyed all of the others. I don't expect more than light, entertaining reading out of this series, but all of the other novels at least conformed to basic story telling rules (i.e. Beginning, middle, end.) This one...not so much. There were entirely too many sub-plots being semi-developed in and round the main plot. Other than Lawe and Diane actually moving forward with a relationship, kind of, none of the plot lines were resolved. Zip. Zero. Oh, you desperately need to find these three missing breeds/altered humans? Um...OK. You might want to do something towards that end. It's vital that you find and stop this sort of crazed, semi-psychotic, mega-bad-a**ed breed who has gone on a killing spree? Great idea. Want to do something about that other than sit in front of a window twiddling your thumbs? There is a huge difference between a bridge book in a series and an epic failure. This book was the latter. It's great to read a book and have a hint of what might be coming later in the series. However, please manage to get something accomplished in the current book. Please. OK. I can hear readers of this review thinking, "Yeah, but at least the love scenes were great right??" No. Yawn. They had all the excitement of a 9th grade sex ed class video, without the giggling. "Clinical" is the adjective that first springs to mind. Like most of the rest of this mess they had the feel of a formula based book gone horribly awry. I can honestly say the only redeeming quality about this book was that I read it while on vacation on a tropical island.

Another story about the absurd problems between the main male and female characters. Very repetive, very forced, very boring. This should have been part of a 4 story book, max 100 pages, advertising the next 3 stories, ie: the missing people and forgiving the rogue. I have read all the books in this series and throughly enjoyed most, but not this one. Bunny

I love this series and this book was awesome! Highly recommend this series and you should start with the 1st book in the series so you understand all thats going on with everyone.

About a quarter of the way into this book I still was feeling like I had missed the plot of this story somewhere. Rather than continue on in the dark, I opted to chalk this book off as one that would be a complete waste of my time to read and delete it from my ebook library. Oh well, live and learn ( or not learn, if you prefer).

That sample, which ended before the book even began, was a complete waste of my time. Still don't know if I would like to buy the book.

Although a very good book, Lawe's Justice was at times frustrating. The one issue that continued to come to the fore was Diane's need to be independent and Lawe's to lock her in a gilded cage to keep her safe. Both Diane and Lawe had things happen in their pasts, that affected their present relationship. The resolution was not quick, but it was achieved. I didn't understand Rachel's decline into this seemingly fragile weepy mother at the continued changes in her daughter. When previously she was a strong fierce mother who would fight for her child. Beyond these issues that I found frustrating at times, there was plenty of action.

This book was Great!! I couldn't put it down. Lawe and Diane story was exciting to read. I am so looking forward to the next book. I am a loyal Lora Leigh fan and have read all of her books. This book is definitely a must read. You will not be disappointed.

I got tired of the acceptance of being a partner. I think they could have gitten to that point faster and added more detail with the battle.

After so much trouble Lora Leigh has had in her breed books lately, I was skeptical, but I do love my breeds and she came through with this one. I loved Lawe and Diane, two warriors mated together, I loved it. The book is hot, now I'm curious as to who Rule's mate is and when his book will be out! can't wait!

For those who have decided to try out Lora leigh's Breed's Series, I say, "Excellent decision." I now highly reccomend you go to Leigh's website & read this great series in the order she provides. Doing so eliminates any possible confusion about storylines or characters. I also suggest you read the series (any series really) one after the other. There are a great deal of characters to follow, so staying in the series & in the authors order is of immeasurable assistance in keeping track of everything. When reading please keep in mind the Breeds have an incredibly long life span so the stories may bounce 100 years or more. I don't think I could even pick my favorite book in the series as they were all very good, some excellent & a few suburb. I find myself rereading my favorite series & authors & Lora Leigh is often among those I choose. Ms. Leigh thank you for all of your hard work & your fertile imagination. Kudos!

I love Lora Leigh, I came across her in in a novella and had to find more of her breed books. I have read and owned everything in the breed book list, I find this was a good add to the series, I don't like it as much as the other beed stories, but I am looking foward to the next one....

Very good story line! I'm still wondering where the people they are searching for are? Who were the painted people? And what did Jonas get so excited or humored about in the end? Oh, and who is his brother's mate? Can't wait for the next book to come out so I can get these answers!!!

I really liked it until I got 170 pages in. Then I felt I somehow skipped fifty pages. I wasn't completely lost but it was enjoyable. The wrap up was a little quick for me and the support staff should have proof read better (sorry when two people are talking in one quote, I become confused. I have read almost all of the breed series except the short stories and I really enjoy them. This was not mt favorite.
