This is the first book of this series I have read and I found it well written and an enjoyable read. I particularly thought the way the affinity between Dale and Ari was portrayed was outstanding and beautifully symbolized. Their tactile relationship showed such emotional and physical understanding and love for each other.
The woman’s relationship ran alongside an interesting mystery combined with the enthralling added extra of Ari being a shapeshifter. Mr Cannon managed to integrate the shapeshifting so effortlessly that it seemed almost natural and no way out of the ordinary for someone to do this.
The ending left the reader wanting to know how Ari’s condition would progress and I will certainly be looking out for this sequel.
The only reason I did not give this book more stars was due to the frequent references made to events which obviously occurred in previous books, though I realise this is a good marketing ploy as I will be looking to read the earlier novels!
