REVIEW

"Book Two of the Alpha Colony series is much too short"

In a world of genetically manipulated humans that shape-shift into animals, Dyuana is the leader of a rebel sect of wereleopards. They live in close proximity to a pride of werelions, headed by the incredibly attractive Maddox. Dy and Maddox have a past. Maddox still wants to be in a relationship with Dy, but Dy disagrees. Since she is sterile as half leopard/half lion, she cannot give the pride leader the necessary heirs or the standing that is required for being the mate of a pride leader. Therefore, she pushes him away, even though her heart breaks.

When a threat to both wereleopards and werelions emerges, Maddox and Dy must work closely together to ensue the safety of their people. But, can Dy continue to deny her feelings for Maddox?

From the first page, this book is hot. The tension between Maddox and Dy starts early and continues throughout this short story. Dy's feelings for Maddox are easy to relate to and I found her intriguingly agreeable. Of course, Maddox represents everything male. Unfortunately, I believe Dy doesn't act consistently at the end, her traits changing to fit into the length of the story.

Although I enjoyed Maddox and Dy together, the rest of the story falls short. The threat that the shape shifters face is disjointed and presented oddly. Also, the story moves incredibly fast and ends abruptly. I believe this book was simply too long to be a short story. I think with a higher page count, the story could have been fleshed out better and held the possibility of being a really fantastic book.
