Terrific second installment in this series! While the book generally focused on Sean and Andrea’s mate bonding, it also gave the reader a broader insight into the world of the Shifters. No hiding here, humans are aware of their existence and use ‘collars’ to maintain control over them, which makes for a very different plot. Not only did we see the return of previous characters, we met some new ones and were brought into the world of the Fae. The Shifters world is expanding, as is the potential for some great story lines. Sean…well what can you say about him other than…WOW! You feel his compassion and power just pouring off the pages. Loved the strength in Andrea, both mentally and physically. Great pairing. The secondary romance between Dylan and Glory was very enjoyable. I look forward to following the lives of the wonderful characters we’ve met. Going forward I hope Ronan has a story somewhere, that cuddly, oversized Ursine and when that adorable Connor comes into his own…watch out! Just hope we don’t have to wait a year for the next book.
3.5 really. This book is mainly about MTM's ongoing struggle with diabetes. Of course I especially enjoyed the personal anecdotes, but it was also interesting to hear her perspective and experience with diabetes(long and difficult). I have worked with many veterans who have diabetes as well as having a high school friend with diabetes (never revealed to me till she went on a wk-end ski trip with my family). It is a 24 hour a day diagnosis and I have a different understanding of what is involved in coping with it after reading her book. There are appendixes at the back that go into even more detail/resources etc. which I only scanned but would be helpful to someone with diabetes.
Every time I bite into some flesh at a restaurant, I think about this book, and where the cow/chicken/pig came from. I learned a ton in this brave foray into non fiction, but I most advise that it goes slowly...read something else simultaneously is my advice.
Not as good as the "Twilight" series...it took a while to get into it, but became interesting toward the end. The next book has taken up right where this one left off.

Yet another view of Japanese Culture through a filthy lens. But no one does it like Kirino.
