    This book had the capacity to be very good but wasted a lot of opportunitiesThe heroineNinahad a very appealing personality and talents but turned into a very soft character near the middle and until the end couldn’t make heads or tails of her feelingsKanethe other main character was very obstinate and unlikeable at the beginning and wouldn’t let Nina know how he feltHe even plotted to kill her and disposed of her personal belongings when he kidnapped herNina and Kane end up alone for a big part of the book and don’t really connect with each other in a way that would redeem this bookNina falls victim to her body a lot of timesa trope I hate reading in romancesand Kane can’t cooperate with his inner beast until the very last pagesThe writing was good and I liked certain elementsbut it’s not a winner for me

    I didn’t think much of Nightwalker and well I didn’t think much of this one eitherTakala’s sister Nina Rainwater is roaming the West using her shamanic powers to free the spirits of killed animals and gets mixed up with a pride of Seniphs were lions who have a deadly problemNina is barely party to the real conflict of the book which is between the naturally inhuman rules of the pride and leader Kane’s love and loyalty for his brother There’s a bit of an old murder mystery thrown in there tooThe first problem I have with the book is the demotic style of the writing both narrative and dialogue That’s a uestionable objection; after all Native American reservations are not Harvard and the seniphs are living and posing as country people but the vulgar language of the characters’ conversations and thoughts leaks into the narrative and there is a sort of convention that novels are written in literary English I seem to recall that the centuries old upper class globe trotting vampire in Nightwalker thought in the same terms so it looks like a limitation of the author rather than an artistic deviceThen there is the common problem of supernatural romances that the concerns of the characters are not human and as a result it is difficult to empathise with themFinally the fantasy setting is just weak; there’s no coherent underlying logic rather a grab bag of legends and things that appear to have been made up to suit the plot The main story is resolved by view spoilerintroducing a new dimension never previously mentioned or suggested to hide the loose ends in hide spoiler
