Rating: 3.5 out of 5
This is a great series, although it is darker than some shifter books I read. Shifters are treated as second class citizens and required to wear shock collars to keep their “animal” instincts under control. The human Shifter Bureau is responsible for ensuring that all shifters stay under human control and obey the laws set out for them by humans.
Walker is the human liaison between the Bureau and Shiftertown and because of that none of the shifters trust him. So, of course, Rebecca runs afoul of the Bureau and Rebecca becomes Walker’s responsibility.
Oh yeah, and she also starts to feel the mating instinct with Walker.
This book was a good addition to the Shifters Unbound series. It is definitely an in between book, but still adds to the overall storyline. We get to revisit some of the characters from previous books as well as get hints about future relationships.
The only thing I had a problem with (and this is a personal issue, nothing against the story) is the fact that Rebecca is so much more powerful than Walker. This is only to be expected since she is a bear shifter, but I still had a problem adjusting to that aspect of the story. The author handles the issue by making Walker the more dominant personality.
As I said before, this is an in between book. I don’t recommend reading it as a stand alone, but I highly recommend the entire series. Book seven, Mate Bond, is due out on April 7th, 2015, so you won’t have long to wait.
In other words, you better get reading!
