Aubrey works security for her Cast. Her uncle, head of the Cast, has been murdered. The Coalition has been called in to investigate. The head of the Bird shifters investigators is Cody, Aubrey's former lover. He tells to butt out, but she does not listen. She finds the perp but ends up in trouble. Will Cody be able to rescue her?
I liked this couple. They are strong separately and together. They butt heads a lot but learn to work together. The world building is good. It sets up the series well. The story is weak as there are more questions than answers. How did the murderer get as far as he did? Why was no alarm raised from where he came? How did he get away with it? Why? There were a few lines about his motive and opportunity, but they felt throwaway at best. I do look forward to reading more of the series.
Ember, a wolf shifter, is ready to tell Max, a bear shifter, that they are mates when she overhears him tell his friends that he does not like fat women. Devastated she leaves. On Christmas day her brother who is also her alpha locks her in a cabin with Max where they need to work things out. Once they overcome their pride and egos, they do work it out.
I liked this book. I loved Ember. I could identify with her. I liked that the story is told from her point-of-view. Max is a little too smug and needs the uncertainty that Ember brings into his life. It took a while, but they did begin communicating which led to a satisfying ending.
