hummm... I don't know what I should do... I liked it and wish I could give 5 stars (because cat shifters are a HOT theme!) but also I'm not 100% happy about how things happened in the story... so well, better give something between, and so it's a 3 stars
The theme is perfect...
It's a shifter story, with two feline shifters... I loved it! I really loved the description of a human can shift to a feline, how both characters interact as felines (ATTENTION, maybe I should say it immediately... sex scene with feline characters. Maybe it can be a problem to someone... well, both were in the feline form, and I saw it as needed to the plot, not just there to be there, so in my opinion it was a good scene).
My problem, and the only reason it's not a 5 stars is how quickly everything was told. The flashbacks or present time of the narration were both sooooooo quick! It was info and more info without much time to develop the ideas. It's a short story, and I know there is already a sequel (The Glaring) but this book have delicate information (near the end, and what happened just before the last page) that in my modest opinion should have more pages... too quick, I was lost.
