This is the 6th book in the Eternal Mates series. I am completely invested in this series. I have enjoyed each of the books I have read so far and this installment was no different. In the previous books the heroes were immortal, however, for this title, the author took a different approach. This time the hero is a mortal. I like that she decided to shake things up a bit and I was curious to see how it would pan out.
Owen Nightingale, although a mortal is a feared hunter in the immortal realm. He is the last of his bloodline. He is harbouring a secret which led to him being a loner. He is not willing to disclose this secret as it could lead to his destruction. Even so, he is willing to risk it all to protect a beautiful and rare hellcat shifter.
Cait, a hellcat shifter has found herself in the crosshairs of a male hellcat shifter. His intentions towards her is nefarious. Cait is aware of the danger she faces and was glad to find her saviour in the most feared hunter this side of the immortal realm. The chemistry between these two is combustible and if not careful readers could find themselves caught up in this raging inferno of passion.
Due to the length of this book much attention was not given to character development. I was hoping for more backstory on Cait. Unlike Owen where readers are given a taste of his origins, nothing was provided on Cait. In addition, not much emphasis was given to developing the romance between them. Their hook up was more of insta-love connection .
As usual Ms. Heaton’s descriptive writing style transports readers into this fantasy world, allowing them to feel as if they are a part of the story. The story moved quickly and is riddled with non-stop action. It will keep you on the edge of your seat and have you eager to find out what will happen next.
The introduction of dragon shifters in this installment prepares readers as to what to expect from future books in this series.
This is a quick and enjoyable read and I highly recommend it to fans of the paranormal romance genre.
I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
