Product description

Product Description

Prince Kael has just lost his father to an assassin, and he’s the next target. A murderer is on the loose, the kingdom is in disarray, and Kael is determined to make the person responsible for killing his father pay. But falling for the beautiful Cara, panther-shifter and main suspect in his father’s murder, wasn’t part of the plan. He’s not at all sure she did it, and he finds himself going against everything he’s ever known just to claim her.

The ceremonial Hunt is approaching, and mates must be chosen to run together. The hatred between the tiger and panther species is all they know. If Kael and Cara follow their hearts, it could mean treason and death.

4.0 out of 5 stars Awesome cross shifter series start 28 February 2017
By cgwin - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
4 Stars - 3 Flames

Oh how I love me some shifters, but I think that this is the first time I've read about a crossover romance; Tigers and Panthers!!! Just a little helpful information before I start the review. Make sure you actually LOOK at the map at the beginning of the story. It really shows exactly where the Panthers and Tiger's live in proximity, as well as where the marketplace is in relation to their homes/forest.

Cara is a panther. A panther who, like the rest of her kind have been shunned down upon and exiled to the edge of the river to live, due to a five decade old tragedy. The food is scarce, the living conditions are harsh and she's been taking care of her family for seven years on her own. While trading a family heirloom for food, Cara is caught in the middle of the assassination of the Rei (King/Ruler of their lands). Immediately running for her life, she's faced with a decision in order to save her family.

Kael is a Tiger and the Prince to the assassinated King. He was also there when it happened, looked into the eyes of the person he thought was responsible and took off to kill in return. But when he finally caught up to the "assassin", he was struck by the beauty of Cara. While returning her to the prison, she makes accusations that he finds hard NOT to believe, causing him to doubt his own family and things he's been raised to believe.

Page after page, we learn more and more about the history of the lands and the truth behind the death of a beloved ruler, all while witnessing the love blossom between Kael and Cara. Of course there is also the need to be loved/accepted by family (Kael) and the fear of failure (Cara), but when they focus on each other, anything is possible.

I've never read this author before, and I have to say that I'm impressed and looking forward to the next installment. Please! Please, oh please be Corbin. Just sayin'....LOL

4.0 out of 5 stars New Author and series! I want more! 2 June 2017

My Thoughts - 4 out of 5 Unicorns - I really liked it!!!
***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!! Yes, I got a review copy of this book, but no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book!

The cover is beautiful and what grabbed my attention to want to read this book and the description made is a must!

This is my first time reading Harper’s work, and it is the first book in this new series! It is for adults only due to the steamy scenes and violence.

This is a cool new shifter world Sarja with a unique idea of how the shifters started. I loved Cara’s character! She is strong and has values. She has a backstory that made me cry! Kael’s parents are pretty heartless, but Kael has a beautiful heart. He wants to believe his parents aren’t evil, but he is not so close-minded that he doesn’t investigate to make his own decisions. I have that about him. Cara and him are definitely a great match. Cara’s compassion and love changes Kael for the good. Cara definitely had some issues with not seeing what was going on with other panthers in her village.

I definitely want to check out more of Harper’s work and watch for more in this series to see where it goes! This is a great start to a series!

I recommend this book to any shifter fan who wants a new and unique world mixed with treachery!
4.0 out of 5 stars Love finding new authors 25 October 2016

I voluntarily read a Advanced Readers copy of this book

This is my first Harper A. Brooks book and I have to say I really enjoyed it. I love shifters stories and the take the Brooks gave is her own little spin on the beginnings of feline shifters. Her storytelling pulled me in from the beginning with how it started right away and there was no lag time between the happenings in the foreword and the story itself.
Our story happens during a time and place that panther shifters are shunned and hated, tigers are the ruling felines with the other feline races in the middle.
Cara is a panther doing all that she can for her younger sister and aging grandmother. It's hard though because being a panther they live on the outskirts of the great city where there is little animals for hunting and no one in the city wants to trade with a panther.
Kael is the tiger prince, the next Rei or king in their world. He's known nothing really other than his training as the next Rei and the things he's learned from his father.
The Hunt is where a male picks his mate and they run through the sacred forest hoping to receive blessings from blessed mother Sajara.
Cara and Kael meet when the current Rei, Kael's father, is murdered in the town square while announcing the hunt will start soon. Kael thinks that Cara is the assassin and takes chase, Cara being a hated panther does the only thing she can do.....RUN.
Cara will doing anything for her little family including being falsely imprisoned. During the time leading up to the Hunt lots of things happen, but the most important thing I think is Kael learning that maybe his father didn't know everything about his people and Cara learning that it's ok to take care of her grandmother and sister, but she can not forget herself while doing so.
The Hunt was a sweet little shifter story with some intrigue mixed in. I would definitely read more stories set in this shifter world.
4.0 out of 5 stars Big Cats with big problems!!! 25 October 2016
By Nikki Brooks - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
First read by this author and I wasn't disappointed! Set in the city of Sajra, it has a distincly middle eastern feel I felt. Great exotic location for a new PNR populated by all the Big Cats! We learn that sometime ago a Panther Shifter killed the Rei (King) and now all Panthers are shunned and they live in pretty much destitution. Cara, a panther, has the misfortune of being in the market when the current Rei is killed and is quickly rounded up as the assassin.

Prince Kael, is enraged and assumes that the assassin was male but when confronted by Cara, he still imprisons her. When he later goes to release her, he would have been killed if not for Cara's quick actions. When he takes care of her and later lets her go, Cara is very confused over what he wants from her. She is still fending off the advances of Rafe, a long time playmate but he does not set her body alight as Kael does. But he is the next in line for the throne and she is a peasant, she really shouldn't hold out much hope that he'd return her feelings...or does he?

Great characters who grow throughout the book and adapt their opinions and long held beliefs. Great secondary characters like Danil and Corbin are also great at moving the story along. Traditions, treason and power grabbing all have their place in the downfall of one regme and the rise of a fairer, friendlier future!

Hoping for more in this world!

An absolute great start to a new shifter series. With this being my first Harper A Brooks!/ story I had no idea what to expect. You'll not only be on the edge of your seat as you turn page after page trying to solve the mystery, but you'll be intrigued from the prologue. She pulled me in with the background of Sajra~ “the blessed mother,” and I cannot wait to read more of these shifters!
Cara a panther shifter(quiet and submissive but more loyal than any of the others) went to the market to trade her mothers hunting headscarf at the market for some meat for her grandmother and little sister. It was the last remaining essence of her mother(*direct book quote) the scent of hilisha flowers and honey, but she had to have some food. The panthers have been outcasts for almost 50 years because one had been accused of assassinating the oldest Noble. As a result, very few will trade with them culminating in them being taken advantage of because they have no choice but to accept what's offered. Watching Rei Salus announce that his son prince Kael will run in this years hunt and choose his regis, her skin prickled letting her know that someone was behind her. She could smell the faint, crisp scent of mint leaves, then something too small to see in its speed blew past her face, whistling through the air toward the dias. Before she could yell out, Rei Salus fell to the ground and died. Prince Kael looked up and locked eyes with Cara. Although she's innocent before he could finish yelling "panther" she was already running away into the forest, because she knows no matter what panthers are guilty of everything. Cara wishes they could go back to the "golden era"- her grandmother says it was a time of peace between the species, love was plentiful and hierarchy did not exist. Will there ever be a time like that again?
Kael the tiger shifter(elegance, with a coat of striking black stripes) prince takes off for the panther that had just killed his father in front of him and all of Sajra. He needed to show the people of Sajra he's strong enough to be their ruler, there's no time for mourning or grief, it's just the tiger's way. Karl has to find that panther, his father should have eliminated them completely after the one killed the oldest Noble. When he became rei, he wouldn’t be as foolish and forgiving as his father.(*direct book quote). Today he would kill the Panther that killed his father and get rid of the rest when he became rei so they couldn't taint Sajra anymore. When he cornered the panther inside the hut he found out it wasn't a man after all, but a woman who swore she didn't kill the rei. “The dart came from behind me. I heard the crunching of footsteps, smelled mint, and the rei fell.”(*direct book quote). Because he had his guards stay behind he has no choice but to leave Cara behind, but tells them he'll be back. Anyone who tries to hide her would be arrested and anyone who tries to fight would be killed.
Cara was just another panther accused of a crime and taken away from the village. It wasn’t the first time, and it wouldn’t be the last.(* direct book quote). Is prince Kael actually thinking of believing Cara? No, it must be the trickery his father always told him about the panthers. They're nothing but liars and thieves, they'll say anything to steal from you. What will Kael ultimately do? Is he going to be the rei that the people of Sajra need? And what kind of rei do they need? You'll have to read THE HUNT to find out. Once I was able to start reading I couldn't put it down, it's an intriguing story, I'm excitedly waiting for more of this series. I received an ARC via Entangled Publishing through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
