I thought this was such a great story. I had not read a book in a long time and was just playing around with my iphone when I came across The Mating. I was so intrigued I read it in two nights. The author did a great job with the plot, the details, and the imagery. The book appealed to my senses and made me feel like I was there with the pack. It was obvious that the author researched the habits of wolves and tied it in beautifully with the rest of the story. I would recommend this book and I look forward to reading more books from this author. Some reviewers on another site mentioned that they were turned off by typos and grammatical errors. However, this being a free book I doubt the author had it professionallay edited and I think that the few errors are easily forgiveable considering that this was such a great read. Keep up the great work Nicky Charles!!!!
