4.5 stars. It was great to be back with the Garoul clan. First I want to mention, while this is the 5th book in the Garoul series, this is a prequel. This book takes place in the late ’70s, way before the other four books in this series. What is nice about this, you do not have to read the other books first. If you are new to the series, you can start right here if you wish. This was a really enjoyable read and I hope it is not the end of this series.
Connie is a moderately famous wildlife photographer and illustrator. She is on the hunt of a rare bird that has been seen in Little Dip. Little Dip is private property owned by the Garoul’s who don’t like trespassers. After being told she is not welcomed on their land, Connie decides she will sneak in anyway. What could possibly go wrong?
I just love paranormal books, and the Garoul series are some of the better lesfic werewolf books around. In fact, book 2, ‘Ambereye’ is one of my all-time favorite books with one of my all-time favorite couples. When I heard this book was coming out I honestly could not be more excited. Throughout the series, we learn little pieces of the characters histories and events that happened to make them the way there are. It was great to finally read this story that tied everything together. This is the start of many characters I have grown to love, from the other books. It was also nice to see how Connie and Marie got together.
Connie and Marie are great, and even more likable than I remembered. The romance is slow going, but the chemistry is obvious. The sex scenes were nice and steamy. I do feel this book is still at the beginning of their relationship. I feel we just scratched the surface. I would actually love to read another book that picks up where this one left off so I could read about Connie and Marie’s relationship developing even more.
I am a big fan of this series and highly recommend these books to paranormal-romance fans. If you are new to this series and you read this book, make sure you go and grab ‘Ambereye’, it is fantastic! I really hope this is not the end of the Garoul’s, I would love another book.
An ARC was given to me for an honest review.
