Sometimes loves hits at the most inopportune of times but when it does, for the Wyr, it's forever. In this case, it happens in the midst of chaos.
A “Wack’O” attempting divination is on a hunt to murder an elementary school teacher, Alice Clark. There have been murders of her kind in the past and now the murderer has struck again. There have been three deaths in a few days; all of them were her friends. Alice is devastated and finds herself under the protection of Detective Gideon Rhiel.
For the life of me, I could not remember Gideon except for when he was mentioned in Storm’s Heart. He was considered to replace Tiago in his absence. And boy, he is definitely just as hot, big, dangerous and every bit as protective. I truly enjoyed reading about him.
Alice however, I am not exactly sure how I feel about her. She definitely is strong, surviving such an ordeal, but she is not the heroine I’m used to. In comparison to Pia, Tricks, and Carling, Alice is the total opposite. She is a schoolteacher, a chameleon Wyr who tries to blend in and stays out of the lime light. There is nothing wrong or bad with that, it's actually sweet. But it's not what I expected.
My only complain about this book is that it is too short, as all novellas are. It would have been nice to hear more of our H/h coming together. Oh and another complain is that I only got a glimpse of my man, Dragos. :(
The story takes place in the span of about 24 hours but Ms. Harrison did a great job giving our couple a love at first site and a HEA in a timely manner. Overall, I enjoyed this novella to tie me over until Oracle’s Moon's release.
