As most know I adore these books.
This book was Shadow and Beauty's story. Beauty is what they call a Gift female. A term Beauty resents. She feels like she's still a prisoner. No males will look at her let alone speak to her. Until she goes running and gets caught in a storm. Shadow sees her running and apprehends her, thinking she was human. Realising his mistake as the storm gets worse they shelter together in the gym.
Spending time together at reservation they grow closer. Although it isn't all plain sailing, they both have their own issues to over come.
Their time together isn't easy. Torrent acts when he sees them together. Thinking Shadow was taking advantage.
When humans come to take Beauty back to her master, all hell breaks loose. But Beauty isn't going to lay down while the man she's falling in love with and her best friend take all the risk.
I loved how they both had issues to over come. How they developed as characters. How they slowly fell in love. Another wonderful new species story.
I would love to see these as a film or tv series. It would make compelling viewing.
