Styx’s Storm (Breeds, #22) by Lora Leigh

Purchased

When Storme Montague’s father and brother are killed by the Breeds, her father’s research is also destroyed — except for a crucial data chip that both the Council and the Breeds would kill to possess.  Betrayed to the Council, she is rescued by Styx, a Wolf Breed who is different from most other Breeds she has ever known.  Storme has something he wants too — but it’s not a data chip.

This is the first of the Breed stories that I remember the human actively hating and fearing the Breeds.  Storme has reason enough to do so, but I think this aspect is overplayed.  We are all affected by what happens when we are young, but she doesn’t seem to exhibit any growth in emotional development unless it is a strengthening of her prejudice.

Having said that, I really liked the book.  Styx is a Scots which is definitely a first for these books.  I don’t know if Lora Leigh is just jumping on the Highlander bandwagon or simply expanding the ethnic development of her Breeds.  She also introduces a different aspect of mating heat.  I really think she may be going in the wrong direction there.
