Between exploring the town in lion form, exploring yellowrlck streets in skinwalkdr form, spying on secret rituals by other paranormal races and awkward but enlightening vamp soirees, the book takes one addictive turn after another.

I have to say I am not enamored of Rick, who Beast seems to like just fine. Just before they sat down she started the water to make some tea. You add it to your tbr list- you take it off again- you hmm and ha.
