I would recommend you read the story included in the Primal anthology first, because it does have some background needed in this one.
Mica was a very likeable character, strong, but smart, and the same time vulnerable and sweet heroine. She's Cassie's best friend, that right there gives her brownie points because I love Cassie, and she's a human who's grown up around Breeds. She is actually Dash Sinclair's goddaughter. And she's always had a crush on Navarro, wolf breed enforcer, who used to be an alpha of his own pack.
But they've both been tested previously and it was determined they weren't mates. He's even kissed her before, and mating heat didn't happen. But she wants him, she loves him. And even though Navarro fights it, he wants her too.
It was a refreshing new twist to the mating heat and matings in this series that could all start blending in together, and I'm looking forward to see how all this is changing and how it will reflect in new books.
Also the developments with Brandemore and Ely. I see interesting things coming up in this storyline.
I enjoy how Ms. Leigh always shows us bits and pieces of the old cast. I ALWAYS enjoy reading about Jonas!! He is still my favorite bad ass! I also liked the new breeds mentioned in this book, and can't wait for Josiah and Cougar to fall. And then there's Ely. I really liked her interactions with Jackal, so I'm hoping, since Jonas is a sneaky bastard, that Jackal will be her mate, and maybe she's been denying it. CAN'T WAIT!!!
And now onto the issue everyone has been talking about. Yes, there seems to be a chunk missing to the story towards the end. In my opinion, it doesn't detract from the overall storyline, it just seems like abrupt change from one scene and then to something else. However, other than that, there are still issues with editing in this book. Wrong names mentioned places, things like that. I really do wish that would get fixed as I find myself having to read scenes twice to make sure I understand the concept.
Other than that, I think this was a good book and I'm really excited to see where this series will go from now on. And Lawe is next right? I've been waiting for him to get mated for a long time! HA! It's going to be fun!
