Dorian, I’ve felt bad for since meeting him in the first book.With the loss of his sister and the fact of being latent. I always felt, that he needed a good story, that he needed to find his happily ever after everything he had been through. After having saved some children from a psy lab, Dorian had met Ashaya the mother of Keenan, the psy child Dorian and other members of his pack, had rescued. Throughout this book after Ashaya had escaped from the lab in search for her son to make sure he lived, she comes across Dorian. Interesting enough is that since these two met in the last book, they have been having wild erotic dreams of each other. But afraid to let herself go because of her sociopath twin sister Amara, becoming a menace and hurting people. So she struggles with Dorian, knowing that they belong together, and that her son is save and sound and clearly linked & attached to Dorian. Meanwhile, the psy council is on the hunt for Ashaya, because she is the key to some of their major plans. While reading this book, not only was there romance, and clearly some action (not talking about the sex *winks*) there is more plotting going on. It’s definitely keeping me intrigue’d so that the romance parts don’t start to get stale. I also love these books, and it’s going to sound silly, but I love these books, because I love how the layouts of these people’s houses are, caves, treehouses, glass houses covered entirely by vines and forest foliage. It’s crazy I know but I love hearing the style of all the different domains in these books, it makes the world more vibrant in my eyes. So it’s makes everything else even more vibrant because the packs are hidden well within the forest, so you have to imagine the creativity put into the housing arrangement of these changling. Anywho, I love this series and i’m gonna continue to read them until the come to their conclusion.
