Blurb: Agent Pan has spent most of his adult life protecting shape-shifters from the Knights—an organization bent on their annihilation—and keeping the secret war in the shadows where it belongs. But the Knights are growing bolder, and a new threat has resurfaced after being buried in the ocean for decades.
An ancient scroll, a key to a devastating weapon, is now in the hands of a recalcitrant Russian hawk shifter named Viktor. As a bird shifter, he knows his duty is to protect the scroll, but he wants nothing to do with the war. He leads a quiet life and wants to keep it that way. But when agents come knocking on his door, he finds it difficult to resist the charms of Agent Pan, especially since this isn’t their first meeting.
Two years earlier they spent a passionate weekend together, neither aware of the other’s true identity. Viktor never really got over Pan. Now with sexual tension at its peak, they must learn to trust each other and work as a team to protect not only their loved ones, but every shifter in the world.
Review: M.D. Grimm returns to The Shifters series this month with book #11. I would like to remind readers that it might help if you read the previous books because there are information and events happening here that are interconnected. New readers might have to work extra to understand the background if they only start with this one.
Feather and Scroll shows how the Knights – an organization whose sole aim is to eradicate shifters as they see shifters as abomination – are getting bolder and bolder. Even if the Agency agents – organization that fights to protect shifters – was able to invade the Knights’ headquarters. They are also getting more hell bent to obtain the magical scrolls that have been guarded by bird shifters for centuries.
Two years ago, Agent Pan and Viktor Orlov, a hawk shifter, had a passionate one-night stand without knowing that their fate will intertwined again in the future. When Viktor’s younger sister steals one of the magical scrolls and brings it to Viktor, Pan arrives on his doorstep since the Agency wants to keep the scroll for safekeeping. The romance is okay, I guess, after eleven books I must admit that they start to feel rather similar. Neither Pan nor Viktor are strong enough to stand out in my memory *sorry boys*.
BUT I liked the progress of the whole arc – we finally know more about why the scrolls are important for Arcas (the Knights’ leader) and his world-domination goal. There is also ONE significant character — that previously is only mentioned – finally appears. I am curious about what this character will do in the next book.
PS: There is a cute update in the end of this book about my favorite agent, Poe, and his master bear shifter, Nordik. Very lovey dovey 🙂
Overall Impression: It was good!
