Length: 13 hours 56 minutes
Since the moment of her defection from the PsyNet and into the SnowDancer wolf pack, Sienna Lauren has had one weakness: Hawke. Alpha and dangerous, he compels her to madness. Hawke is used to walking alone, having lost the woman who would've been his mate long ago. But Sienna fascinates the primal heart of him, even as he tells himself she is far too young to handle the wild fury of the wolf. Then Sienna changes the rules - and suddenly, there is no more distance, only the most intimate of battles between two people who were never meant to meet.
Yet as they strip away each other's secrets in a storm of raw emotion, they must also ready themselves for a far more vicious fight. A deadly enemy is out to destroy SnowDancer, striking at everything they hold dear, but it is Sienna's darkest secret that may yet savage the pack that is her home---and the alpha who is its heartbeat.
My top thoughts:
Wow! Kiss of Snow made up for all the ways Play of Passion lacked. And I was right about one thing, Play of Passion transitioned us to a really great place. This book was jam packed with plot progression, action, and romance. I’m buddy reading the series with Anne and she also gave this 5 stars; it’s that good!
What I liked/didn’t like:
I think one of my favorite elements of this book was getting to know so many SnowDancers better. We have such a cursory knowledge of them before this book. But through getting to know Hawke and Sienna better, we get to see quite a range of SnowDancers. And then getting to know Hawke and Sienna was in itself a treat. Sienna was the real surprise for me. In my head, she’s mainly grown up as a SnowDancer. But no, she lived so much in her short life and I was surprised to see her history. She’s an even better match for Hawke than I anticipated. And we got a bonus couple in Kiss of Snow: Sienna’s uncle Walker and the SnowDancer healer Lara. I enjoyed their story almost as much as Sienna and Hawke’s.
The plot progression was equally great. Everything we’ve been waiting for and anticipating starts coming to a head in this book. There’s more action than I think we’ve seen in any of the previous books (maybe combined?). I don’t want to spoil anything, so I won’t say much. We’re still waiting for some explosions and reveals (like Ghost’s identity, for example) but we’re getting so close. It’s very exciting and I fully expect the next few books to be full of action and plot progression.
I continue to listen to this series and enjoy Angela Dawe’s narration. I think she does a great job of bringing all the characters to life and there’s quite a cast!
