I think the story idea is a good one. To me the story was like taking a 500 page book cutting out most of it to make it fit 250 pages. The sentences were short to the point. Then the story jumps ahead. In my opinion I would have liked to see more details to fill in the story.This novel has a little bit of everything, shapeshifters, spirits, elementals, etc. The last third of the book was better then the first third.This is a book 2 in the series.A shifter and a woman with untapped powers, can they discover the magnitude of her potential before it’s too late?Aren Van der Ness has been away from Savoy Valley for a few years, but returned at the request of a friend.

Anytime she’s near him, she feels different, as if she’s losing control of something.
