I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It's got a mystical Native American vibe that I've not experienced since Mustang Hill by Rolf. I know quite a few people will be put off by the warning tags. I wasn't. Actually, I was anticipating something harsher than what I got. It does happen on the page, but is wasn't Bloodraven level and it was short-lived.

Some parts are brutal (rape, non-con).
Some parts are evil.
Some parts are frustrating, maddening, hair pulling.
Some parts are tearful.

This book touches a few very delicate topics and yet it is foremost a story of love and its many faces. While rules stand between Ay’len and Ma’ki, their bond cannot be broken. The way they overcome every obstacle is inspiring and makes you see that risks are worth taking.
This is a well-written story that pulls on your heart strings from page one!
