Germany, 1940

Half Romani, Tairin's no stranger to hiding her mixed blood from gypsy caravans. What she can't hide is her perpetual youth, courtesy of her shifter heritage. Every few years, she drops out of sight, resurfacing in a new country to join a caravan where no one knows her. She's overstayed her welcome where she is, but Germany is at war, and travel has become all but impossible for everyone targeted by the Reich.

Elliott's clairvoyance is strong, even for a Romani. Seer for all the caravans in Germany, he catches Tairin eavesdropping outside their leader's wagon one night. He should turn her in, but it would mean her execution, and he can't bring himself to do that. Instead, he interrogates her. Her magic is different, but he can't figure out quite what she is.

Any association between Romani and shifters is forbidden, and Tairin shields herself from Elliott's probing. She should leave right now, tonight. It would be easy enough. Shift to her wolf form and run, keeping out of hunters' gunsights. She's on the edge of flight when Elliott suggests a covert task to prove her loyalty. Tairin agrees immediately, kicking herself for being weak where he's concerned. Shifters and Romani have no future together. Zero. Zilch.

She should be smart about this and vanish into the night--before he discovers what she is and destroys her.

Tarnished Legacy: Now that Ann has laid the foundation in Tarnished Beginnings, Soul Dance Book 1, we get into the meat of the story. I'll just say, not surprising at all, that Ann Gimpel did not disappoint... well except that it ended. I knew that the story was part of a series, but I got so caught up in the journey. Darned cliffhangers! But, I digress. I didn't want it to end. I'm so glad that it doesn't! I truly love the dynamics of this story and it still has me captivated. Pick up this book, you won't want to put it down.

Another amazing book by this author. We have gypsies, wolf shifters, vampire's and Nazi's, yep that's what I said. Tairin's been hiding in plain site, amongst a gypsy tribe currently located in Germany, for the last 10 years. Hiding due to her mixed blood and if she's discovered she would be killed. In this tribe is Elliott the tribe's clairvoyant and seer of all the tribes. Elliott finds Tairin secretly listening to a meeting of leaders of the different tribes and they learn secrets about each other and just in time for a plan to destroy a Nazi location filled with prisoners. They discover a Nazi plan more dangerous and evil than the camps. Because of this they must all overcome centuries of prejudice and work with their enemy, the werewolves. The story is filled with action, danger, magic and of course terrific paranormal beings. The authors ability to write great stories during different historical periods and fantastical world building never ceases to amaze me; I'm always eager to read her next book. Anyone who loves to read the paranormal genre, with plenty of action, suspense and surprises will love this new series.
