Meeting your soulmate? Great. Preventing your possible murder? Even better.
Alice Clark, a Wyr and schoolteacher, has had two friends murdered in as many days, and she's just found the body of a third. She arrives at the scene only minutes before Gideon Riehl, a wolf Wyr and current detective in the Wyr Division of Violent Crime—and, as Alice oh-so-inconveniently recognizes at first sight, her mate.
But the sudden connection Riehl and Alice feel is complicated when the murders are linked to a serial killer who last struck seven years ago, killing seven people in seven days. They have just one night before the killer strikes again. And every sign points to Alice as the next victim.
Product WarningsThis book contains a hot police detective, a violent murderer on the hunt, and a heroine that can blend in anywhere...
This short story is set in the same world as her Elder Races series, available now from Berkley. While I enjoyed reading about something outside the main storyarc of the series, I don’t think it packed the same punch as her full length novels.
The villain wasn’t too hard to figure out. I think it was pretty obvious from the beginning whodunit. But the romance was entertaining enough that I wasn’t bored with the story. I like the idea of an unusual Wyr, which is what Alice is.
A quick, light read. Especially since the next release in the series is so far away…
3.5 out of 5
