Absolutely loved this series and chomping at the bit waiting for the next one! The only criticism I would have with this book is that I think Gwen should have made her mates suffer a bit for what they did to her in her previous lives. I think she was altogether much too forgiving of them far too quickly. Other than that, this was a brilliant book and have so far enjoyed everything that Nancy Corrigan has written. Can't wait for Anton's story which is coming soon.
This is a wonderful series. I have so enjoyed each and every book. Through this series we get to see some real creativity from the author. It is good to see a story about Gwen, Xander, and Vlad.
I can not imagine what it was like for Gwen. Here she was kidnapped, held captive, and suffered more then anyone should have. The two things I truly loved about Gwen was she had a strong will to survive and she had compassion. She truly cared for one of the captives named Killer. He was there for her and she was there for him.
Gwen was pure and when I say pure I mean she was a virgin. She was being put into a hunt were her virginity was the prize. Her captors did not care if she ended up hurt or killed. All they cared about was the money they could make off her. She was running for her life trying to stay keep the shifters from catching her.
Xander who was alpha of the Royal Winchester pack had suffered so much. Here he was faced with his 3rd chance with his fated mate. He had already lost her twice and this made her 3 time being reincarnated. I can not imagine living with the memories of your mates past lives. To feel you had done her wrong those times. The one thing I loved about Xander is he was determined to correct his past mistakes.
Vlad was an interesting character. He to was Gwen’s fated mate and he also had know her in her past ives. He had grieved for her each time as well and wanted to correct all the mistakes he had done. He was more exempting of the fact that him and Xander had the same fated mate and was more then willing to do this threesome. Xander not so much.
There is a lot that happens in this book. We get to see the battle between Xander and Vlad. We also get to see Gwen find out some about her past life. One thing I love reading was the growth we got to see in Gwen. Though she was strong she had so many fears and her caring attitude make her weak at least in the shifter community. She as human after all and that was a mark against her. But when she mated with Xander and Vlad it was like it strengthen her more. She was a stronger person because of them. It truly show how when you have that person that completes you it can strength you and complement you.
There are a few surprises along the way. I am happy we got to see Molly the cute little lion cub in this story. To see the reunion between Molly and Gwen was heart touching. There is some danger just around the corner but don’t worry it does have a happy ending. Truly glad I got to read this story.
The Royals have been to hell and back, there are still the purists who want to see them gone and there are the witches and single shifters that long to steal their Royal Alpha Spirit and thus achieve immortality. the twins Molly and Megan 5 year olds housing the spirits of very ancient Royals have beat unbelievable odds and are safely protected.
Winchester Royal Alpha Xander has lived centuries, has found and lost his mate twice and he is determined to not commit the same mistakes a third time. His mate has reincarnated a third time, but this time will be different. He will risk everything to find her again. For some reason his one time best friend Vlad is present again as he has always been in the past, but now he finally comes to terms with why.
Gwen thinks she has failed to protect her step sister Molly from the shifters after them and has no idea that Molly has been rescued and is safe. Now as she is being chased by shifters in a hunt, she falls into the arms one of the hunters a very powerful shifter that basically takes her breath away and not because of the body shock, but because of the powerful pull he has on her virginal lady parts. To top it all off Vlad appears, a male she always had a crush on since her teens, but who always ignored her for her older sister. The strangest thing is that both males claim to be her mates, Xander catches her fancy, but she can't trust that Vlad isn't just desiring what he can't have now that Xander has her. He has always been a man whore.
Many intrigues, lots of. mystery, action and surprises await fans of The Royal-Kagan Shifters, this series has been such a wild ride, every single story is an adventure.
This is the first of the Royal-Kagan series that I've read and I loved it! This book has everything - action, magic, shifters, romance, humor - and smoking hot MFM love scenes between fated mates. I am looking forward to the next book in the series and will be going back to read books 1-6 as well.
