The connection is more powerful than any god could create and stronger than any war could destroy.
It has been said that the only way to truly kill a shifter is to have their mate taken from their side.
Even in death, their love will never perish…
Talon has never been more in love with his mate than in the months leading up to the arrival of their first born, the next alpha to the Shaw pride. His cub’s birth should be surrounded by celebration, but when Talon’s mother falls ill and Liberty goes into labor, the alpha must balance his emotions for the sake of his people.
The presence of something otherworldly sends Talon and his Guardians on the search for answers to a mysterious phenomenon. When the truth is revealed, Talon must accept what has been written by fate, even if he doesn’t agree.
This is a novella and should be read in order with the other pride books.
This is a quick but beautiful read. You can feel the love between Talon and Liberty, and the family dynamics and closeness of the pride. One of things I really loved about this book in the series, is the evolving change in the way the women of the pride are treated. The pride cherishes their women; so much so, that they are protected, with a sense of "let the man do it." That has worked in the past, but with new dangers and times, one previous incident is encouraging a new way of thinking, and I can't wait to see how the writer will allow this to develop.
