"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.
