Review by: Wisteria
Mattayas is the eldest son of the alpha pair, the buck destined to lead his Wul pack when his father dies. Anha is a proud young Lyx fem, a strong hunter and fighter for her nest. Their mating instincts drive this unlikely pair together, sending Mattayas into a murderous rage that leaves them with horrific choices to make. Can their instincts overcome the problems inherent in such a match?
Anha is Lyx, Mattayas is Wul. Their mating is forbidden, but something draws them together. Afraid for the lives of her babies, Anha flees her nest in search of a safer place to rear them. When Mattayas follows her, she realizes the felling she harbors for him aren’t going away. Perhaps two different beings can love each other anyway.
Let me start by saying WOW! I am a lover of paranormals anyway, but the creativity in this story just added fuel to the fire for me. It reaffirmed the why’s of my love for paranormal stories, and when an author can craft a tale such as this that truly tantalizes the senses and pulls you in, making you care about the characters, the story is all that much better. A great read about love that defies the rules. Sort of a “were” Romeo and Juliet. Touching and alive with emotions.
Thank you for the awesome tale. I can’t wait to see what your next work is. You can rest assured I will be looking for it.
