I actually find this story to be quite fascinating. There is this 'mystery' surrounding the story as readers don't really get to know in what part of the world the story takes place (the blurb says India, but the story never really says so) -- only that it is in jungle.

It is written in third person, with Kaanan as the main narrator. Kaanan is a shifter-leader who takes care of his leopards, and unlike others shifter stories, he doesn't communicate with human language easily. So, the story also offers a sense of rawness ... from when Kaanan stalks the boy, finding him, taking care of him, and then falling in love with him. I love the staccato "Me Tarzan, You Jane" conversation. It stays true to the idea of Kaanan being wild and animalistic shifter -- even if he can shift into human form.

Personally, it feels refreshing and so unlike one of those "you're-my-mate-let's-have-sex" themes. Definitely one of the gems coming from the LiaW event.
