Reviewer: Tonya


If it weren’t for the fact that the gods had forbidden it, Princess Aladee would pray for the sweet escape of death. Unending torment as a prisoner of the bloodthirsty Tordanuk and his evil sorceress, Shivrane, has taken a mighty toll.

Chained to the dungeon wall beside her, Bax’Taran the Brave and Yevlor the Swift, both Guardians of Zalvanus and cursed shape-shifters, have taken countless lashes meant for Aladee. Brave, noble and strong, the tantalizing pair exudes raw masculinity. Their mutual connection is intense, their lusty attraction for her undeniable.

Aladee dreams of sharing freedom and passionate lovemaking with her beloveds. But with Yevlor’s strength depleted from excessive torture, she fears he won’t survive another shift into tiger form. With the thought of losing Yevlor unbearable, Aladee uses her empathic ability, intent on creating a miracle. Will their sexual bond be strong enough to help them triumph?

Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of graphic violence and references to rape.


This short but hot read was a new genre for me. I usually stay clear of stories that are little more gory or violent than others. It’s not for the light stomach or light hearted. The scenes are very detailed. You can smell the blood, hear the smack from the whips, you can hate as the characters hate, yearn as they yearn. The author did a wonderful job of pulling the reader into the story for what seems like a mini-movie inside your head.

If there is one thing I learned from reading this book, is never judge before reading. I wasn’t sure about the genre, but it was a great read. If you’ve never read a book of this caliber than I highly suggest you pick up a genre or author you’ve never read before…no better way than to start with this one.
