Blurb: Forgiveness is the final form of love.–Reinhold Niebuhr
Years ago, Ice’s heart was broken when his mate, Dragon, abruptly left him. After that, Ice hardened his heart and vowed never to love again. He is shocked when he is on assignment and finds himself saving Dragon from an attack.
Dragon’s soul was devastated when he was forced to leave Ice. While Dragon thought at the time he was doing it in order to protect Ice and his twin, Brute, the demon now realizes what a huge mistake he made.
Can he find a way to make Ice forgive him? Or will they forever be alone?
Review: This is a book best read as part of a series and in order. The first book sets up the premise: a bizarre group of paranormals and friends who go about helping other paranormals in distress. But it’s not just wolf shifters and vampires. There are brownies, ghouls, harpies, unicorns and – in this story – an abominable snowman shifter. Huh. Well, sure. Granted, he doesn’t like to shift and we only see him shift once to help him heal, but it’s a great idea, right?
I think that the idea behind these books is a good one. Unique creatures, a lot of humor, a quick but intense romance and some danger. Unfortunately, they don’t really capitalize on their unique natures very much, so I still have no real idea what would make a abominable snowman shifter tick, nor that of a fire demon.
Ice and Dragon were lovers previously, and as soon as they see each other, they fall back into being the mates they are. There is pretty much nothing – relationship wise – for them to work on. Most of this is them fighting Dragon’s fight.
So… if you’re in the mood for a quick – sexy – adventure, with a lot of humor – this is the book for you. If you want something deeper, more romantic or more involved – keep looking.
Overall Impression: It was good
