"a very interesting work of fiction"

Ruse the Sandcat was entranced by the little girl as soon as he laid eyes on her. Something drew him to Eledi, but he couldn't figure out what. When he met Eledi's mother Amaya, he knew he had found his mate in her.

Amaya was in a full panic when she discovered the huge Truxet warrior with her small daughter. Eledi was so small, he could easily harm her. When Ruse told her she was his mate, the Guildless woman panicked even more. She couldn't possibly be a shifter's mate, could she? And what would happen to her daughter?

This was a very interesting work of fiction. I noticed a lot of poetry in the descriptions. The author was somewhat formal, but seemed to capture the spirit of what she was writing. The erotic passages were well thought out and beautiful. She captured tragedy, love, fear, prejudice, and acceptance very well, and I would love to know if any of her characters are based off of old legends of some kind. The author was very passionate about what she was writing and the tragic aspects of the book seemed to have a very personal flavor, she described them so well. Her inner child was very present in Eledi, who I think charmed the whole book.
