4.5 stars. A beautifully conceived, engaging fanfic bringing together 35 year old alpha werecat Jensen and runaway 19 year old werecat Jared. The teenager has been raised by humans and is unaware of his true nature. I have had this fic on my shelf for ages not realising how good it is. I admit to skimming over certain passages of introspection in order to get to the action but I am now seriously hooked (there is a whole series of Dawnbringer.)
'That other person, the ailure that Jared should have been, wouldn't dream about that space inside of him, worry about it anxiously, wondering, waiting.
The other ailure would be more like Jensen, someone Jensen would admire. Someone who wasn't turned around in the woods like an idiot cub.
Someone who knew what his place in the world was.'
