This is such a sweet book to read, especially after the readers last see Byron in Dark Desire. The first glimpse of the jaguar species, it gives more insight into the human women that are compatible with the Carpathian males.
I really love that the author is sticking with the guys waiting and courting the women. I think this also may be the first time that the readers get an actual age on the woman as well.
In all honesty, the couple wasn’t really what kept me reading and if it was just them I might have been bored. Don’t get me wrong, they were cute and sweet but they were kind of slow and while I understand it, it went just a little slow for me.
The plot and the mystery were what were going for me, though I do feel like the culprit could have been added for shock value since there wasn’t really anything leading up to it. I liked it though, it was a great plot twist when I first read this book.
I thought it was interesting to have a blind lifemate but I feel like there should have been more description about texture and the feel of things.
I loved meeting Josef and actually getting his age put him and I think the Carpathians in perspective, he’s the same age as I am right now and acts like a fifteen year old. I know Savannah was 23 when the readers saw her in Dark Magic but she basically had to grow up really fast. I absolutely loved Byron and Jacques reconciling and what’s this new line of Carpathians, the Dragonseekers? Sounds interesting.
Thank you for reading my review.
