This was free on Amazon. So I thought why the hell not?
I liked it, I've never read a bird shifter book before and it was cute.
Hero was gone for the heroine from the moment he meets her and some of the things he said was cute and had me laughing. I liked how he wooed her even though he thought she wasn't his mate, the heroine was the typical heroine. I don't think I have to say what I meant by that.
There were things that bothered me, like the whole kingdom had a ha ...more
Apparently this is a re-release that has been extended since its original publication. I’ve never read a shifter story with an avian hero before so was interested to see what the author would do. Well if honest I didn’t find Kabril to be very heroic unfortunately as he’s spoiled, egotistical and at times downright hotheaded. Still I do understand that he’s always been feted by those around him so can forgive some of his behaviour. After all no matter how much he wants to lick th ...more
This was such a cute and fun read; I think I smiled all the way throughout the book. The characters connection was perfect as it showed a close friendship between the King Kabril and his loyal old friend and advisor “Sachin” as well as creating the friendship between Kabril and his future mate Rayna (human).
The romance between Kabril and Rayna grew sweetly with friendship and trust; and I loved how the relationship developed into an undeniable attraction between the two. ...more
Kabril is King and he totally uses that to his advantage. When they first meet one another he is attracted to her and he wants to just take her back to his bed and ravish her but he ...more
This ebook was alright. It was enough to keep me entertained and to keep reading, but the actual plot of the story was a bit lackluster. I did like how Kabril learned to respect Rayna rather than just wanting to sleep with her 24/7 lol. Overall, I wouldn’t read this story again, but it was okay to read during breaks at work.
Heat Rating: 3/4
Narrator Performance: 2/5 - DNF
· Good storyline.
· Fun secondary characters.
· Nice scenery descriptions.
· Well developed male protagonist.
· Appreciable world building.
· Made me want to continue reading the series.
· Rayna's acceptance of the paranormal. She barely batted an eyelash IMO.
· Though resolved, I feel that the conflict in Kabril's and Rayna's relationship was somewhat glossed over.
· Kabril's entitled, imperialistic behavior. I ...more
I didn't feel very attached to any of the characters.
The sex was minimal. It was beyond young adult for certain but I wouldn't call it erotica.
The world setup wasn't too shabby. There's a world of avian shifters with magic and conflict bet ...more

I have to say that i really like how Mandy writes.
This story is short,funny,sexy and keeps your interest.
We meet the bird men royal hawks and specific we meet their king that the profecy has it he is to be mated to a human.
Kabril is not overly happy about that fact and tries to avoid it but he finds himsel in earth and overly drawn to Rayna.
Can these two find happiness?
A really sweet and funny story that will keep you reading and ...more
I don't often read bird shifter book, but this was not too bad.
Kabril is King of the Eagles in a realm apart from Earth. They didn't really go into detail about this but the realm can only be accessed by some portals in the sky...like the Bermuda Triangle.
Kabril's people are having problems having babies so he comes to Earth to find his destined mate. I really liked his friend Sachrin. He convinces Kabril that he has to woo Rayna and get her to care for him. It gets pretty steamy.
We als ...more
I loved the idea of this book. Unfortunately, it felt like it could have gone a bit smoother.
Not sure the characters, with their designations in the story, felt like they were developed enough.
It kills me that this could have gone a lot better, cause I know that I LOVED the theme and idea..
I just find this too short to have a development between the H and the h.
Overall, it wasn't a bad read.
Kabril must find a mate on earth but he's happy with his life in his realm as it is. His loyal subjects are worried that there are no children and return to the old ways of ...more
It’s a nice little book that drives more on sexuality,lust and desire then anything else. Driving the characters together because of their desire for one another. If there was a build up of normal intimacy from getting to know each other and making memories in the book,showing the development of their relationship i would feel more connected ...more
I do enjoy shifter books and this was an ok read that was easy and fast paced an easy vacation read. The H was the typical Alpha out of place and time (ok realm) trying to “woo” the girl; the h was easy going and accepted the shifter/different realm thing easily (that was kind of strange) she also had spunk when needed that was fun to read. The seconda ...more

King of Prey is book one in the King Of Prey Series; but can be read as a stand alone.
