"vivid world-building and compelling characters"

Reule, the Prime of the Sange people, takes his Pack on a hunt for one of their pack members who has been captured by the Jakals, a race that gets pleasure from the torture of others. When Reule and his Pack find the Jakals in a dilapidated building, they also find a woman, who has been beaten and is in bad shape. Reule, whose people have been persecuted, doesn't know whether he can trust her but can't seem to help himself from feeling an attachment toward her. After Reule gives her the name Mystique, they become closer, but is the woman as innocent as she appears?

DRINK OF ME is a marvelous paranormal romance with vivid world-building and compelling characters. Ms. Frank lured me into her world and kept me entranced throughout the entire story. She creates a world, which is, at times harsh, but beautiful. Reule is a great hero, who is the leader of his people and, therefore, has great responsibilities. He has overcome much and is, almost, afraid to love. Mystique is fragile, but determined. I enjoyed the fact that she overcomes Reule's protectiveness with her fierce need to help. These two are a wonderful compliment to each other, and their romance makes for a sigh-worthy read.

I don't know, if this is the beginning of a series, but I sure hope it is. Ms. Frank captivated me, and I really want to return to her world and find out what happens to the other Pack members.

In a world where emotion can be a deadly weapon, one slight, battered runaway holds the key to a dark and twisted enigma..."Drink Of Me", she whispers, her silver eyes trusting, pleading. What female dares speak such words to one of the Sange? His people are scorned by every race for their fierce sensuality, their fearful rituals. And as Prime, Reule is the most telepathically gifted of them all. But nothing has prepared him for the intensity of emotion radiating from the outlander rescued by his Pack. Terrified, tormented, but beautiful beyond measure, Mystique shatters his legendary control. As she reaches for him in the steamy heat of the healing baths, he knows this blind need can have but one end... In blood, in knowledge, in ecstasy.
