Captivating and original. Sara Humphreys managed to create a universe really interesting with shapeshifters yes but not the most common ones and that’s really refreshing. Here the Amoveo, kind of shapeshifter with magical abilities, are structured in ten clans: eagle, bear, fox etc with a Prince at the top of the “hierarchy”. Even better cross mating can happens and the child with have one of other clan from his parents so you don’t know which one until the first change.

So far also, nothing is said about an obligation to change, no real compulsion. These Amoveos are in a way strongly normal even with their special abilities. Also they can only have one mate and they can only have children with their soulmates. They are keeping their existence secret from humans but two groups know a lot about them. One, The Vasullus’ Family, decided to help them by serving and protecting the Amoveo and the second the Cadeo family is their enemy and wants to obliterate them from the planet thinking they are abominations.
However, things are not so simple and Sara Humphreys has managed to let allusion about that in the story before revealing it more directly in the last chapters so the readers could guess the problem but the culprit isn’t so easy to identify.

The rhythm is perfect for the plot not slow but gradually moving up. The action is really present but the violence is concentrated at the end of the story for the bigger part. All is centered about the romance between Samatha who doesn’t know that she is, in fact, the first Hybrid known and Malcom the last of the Eagle clan. That’s the first time I encounters a eagle shapeshifter and it was really good. The characters are well constructed and I loved to see how Malcom was trying to adapt himself to the reality of the special situation while letting Samatha have the time she could need to understand this new world for her. It was sweet and very thoughtful of him even if he has difficulties to respect her privacy with the mental connections.

The fans of paranormal romance should be very happy with this original story.
