In his position as Tracker for the SnowDancer pack, Drew Kincaid must rein in rogue Changelings who've lost control of their animal halves - even if it means killing those who've gone too far. But nothing in his life has prepared him for the battle he must now wage - to win the heart of a woman who makes his body ignite... and who threatens to enslave his wolf.

My top thoughts:

While I was admittedly maybe not in the right headspace for this book, I don’t think it lived up to many of the other books so far. It was a transition book I think, with an awful lot of waiting. That being said, I did like the couple and found their relationship really hot and sweet at the same time. And it may be a transition, but I really am excited about where it’s transitioned us to!

What I liked/didn’t like:

Indigo and Drew are both dominants, so there was a similar struggle to what we saw with Riley and Mercy — HMMM does it say something that the Kincaid boys can handle a dominant woman? I have to say, it makes them some of my favorite men of the series. I buddy read this with Anne (she’s giving it 3.5 stars) and she pointed out that Drew was especially romantic and I have to agree — it takes a certain kind of loving respect for their partner to take on these dominant woman that is very romantic. OH and hot. This book rivals Riley and Mercy’s for it’s sizzle factor (but I think that’s just a shifter/changeling thing). Indigo is initially a bit abrasive for my taste but I think it’s understandable considering her role in the pack.

I think the disappointment for me was in the overall story arch – the outset suggested we were going to have some MAJOR developments in terms of the Psy-council, ghost, and potentially the inevitable clash between the changelings and the Psy. And then we waited. And waited. And waited. Finally things happened, but it wasn’t until basically the very end and now we’ll be (hopefully) seeing some of the sparks I was hoping for in this book in the next one instead. But at least we arrived at that point!

Narrator thoughts:

I listened to this as I always do, because I adore Angela Dawe’s narration. This time that might have hurt my experience a bit, but in no fault to the narration. I just was really distracted by life and listening allowed me to drift from the story a lot more than reading would have. This is one I would consider rereading sooner than later to see if my opinion is improved at all.

3 stars Just Okay

  1. I was none too keen on this book my first time around, either. The romance got on my nerves because I struggled with Indigo and yes, things moved slowly for the series arc. My second time around, I was more mellow about things- maybe because I knew where stuff ended up going- though I still thought Indigo got too abrasive at times. Thoughtful review, Berls!
