Didn't even need an Epilogue (I know, I know! It's a Stormy Glenn book, I ALWAYS want an epilogue!). It ended so perfectly that I just didn't need it.
Haq and Kyrenin were so cute and amazing together. And Stormy totally sneaked a surprise twist on me there that I SO was not expecting! But I loved it.
Because it's Stormy the writing was engaging and practically flawless. I felt like I was actually in the book, watching the world around me go crazy, on the run from the military. Every orgasm that Kyrenin and Haq had, I experienced as well...well, you know, mentally, not physically. It's not like "stroke material," but it's still pretty damn hot.
Such a great read. I'd recommend this book after a really bad day, it will work wonders for you and make you smile. I was in love with everyone by the end of the book...well, all of the good people at least.(less)

Luca and Rowan definitely make the cutest, sexiest couple.
Even The Epilogue Whore was happy with the ending. A must read...again, and again, and again.(less)

I want to give this book 10 stars.
Every page I turned the book got better and that's not an exaggeration, that is truth. This book, this story and Mary's writing oozes, leaks and throbs with perfection, with genius.
I don't think anyone more than me pleaded, begged, cajoled, blackmailed, whined, and prayed for a third book in Mary's werepanther series. I had fallen so in love with Jin and Logan in Change of Heart, at the time seeing myself in Jin and my deceased fiance, Christopher, in Logan. As I have grown and change, so has Jin and Logan.
The relationships, the strength, the power, the sex, the couples, even the betrayal and violence improved one hundredfold between Trusted Bond and this book.
I didn't think it was possible for me to love Jin and Logan more than I had in Trusted Bond, but Mary proved me wrong. More than that, Mary made me fall in love with characters that I had only a passing affection for before: Domin, Yuri, Crane, Mikhail and characters that I had previously rooted for and cheered for did a complete 180 and I found myself sneering at them and wishing for boils to grow on their privates.
This book takes place a while after Trusted Bond, it doesn't pick up immediately, but takes place a few years after book two ends, and I will admit I was looking to see how much everything had changed. I was very happy to see that Logan and Jin's relationship had strengthened, that their bond had become impenetrable. I was happy to see Jin gaining control over his power. More than that I was so happy to see characters redeeming themselves or showing their true colors.
Each chapter, each page got better. I laughed, I gasped, I almost cried (which I blame on someone cutting onions somewhere), I yelled at characters, I almost threw my book across the room in fury. I even started a "shit hit" list and put characters on there that I wanted to see pay for their egregious sins. I was very happy to see justice play out.
More than that I was happy with the way I felt when the book finished. While I wouldn't turn my nose up at another book with Jin and Logan (because c'mon I think the only person that loves them more than me is Mary Calmes and even then, we'd probably have to debate that), I can honestly say that when the book was over, I sighed. In relief, in satisfaction, in happiness, in awe, in love, in completion. I knew that Jin and Logan had told their story and for them, questions had been answered, bonds were solid and they were, they are one of the most loving couples I have ever read about.
I wanted to give this book 10 stars, because 5 just doesn't seem enough to do it justice. Brilliant perfection Mary, that was this book, brilliant perfection.(less)

The Epilogue Whore was very ANGRY by this book. Because it's a series and it's the first book and it was SO good that by the end of it I wanted it to keep going and it didn't.
Because there's another book coming.
I seriously want to give this book a 4.95 because of the fact at one point I did want to slap the shit out of Mik, but then I realized that means that Mr. Kaine did an EXCELLENT job writing this character and honestly by the end I didn't know WHAT I wanted to do to Mik, but I wanted to do it soon...and fast...and probably hard.
As anyone knows I love books with a really good paranormal/supernatural edge and theme to it, well this one has that and more. Besides having the snarky MC (Mikhail) who I found myself both laughing at and wanting to throttle, this book had the evil characters that you sort of want to see be redeemed and the ones that you want to jump in the book and come after yourself. At one point I did attempt to jump into the book...it was not pretty. LOL.
But even with all of the snarky, angsty, vampirey goodness of this book, Daniel Kaine has woven a story so deeply moving and touching that you can't help but want to throw the book across the room because you have to wait to see how it all ends.
I can definitely see myself reading this book again and again, let's just hope that this book doesn't end up like my Kindle (*looks at broken pieces of Kindle*).(less)
