I am not much of a shifter girl, vamps have always had my heart. But after reading this book, I just may have to rethink my choice! This book was a breath of fresh air. Mantle incorporates many different shifter species into this book. Not just your werewolves, but, coyotes, hawks, horses, even a house cat! And just for good measure, she throws in a vampire. Alex is a kick ass heroine and it has great secondary characters, and can I just say, I am totally crushing on Tristan. I loved everything about this book. Can't wait for the second installment!
