The prologue in the first book of this series has an interesting and intriguing take on how the shifters were created.

Kael is a tiger shifter and next in line to become the "Rei", king of Salja. He has been groomed to follow in his father's footsteps. Something he has done blindly with no questions. Until now!

Cara is an orphan panther shifter who has taken on the responsibility of caring for her younger sister and grandmother. The panthers are the outcasts of the shifter community and are treated with disrespect. They live in poor conditions and struggle for life necessities.

Salus is the current king of Salja. Whilst making the announcement of Kael's participation in the forthcoming hunt which is an annual ritual where the shifters choose their mates, something unexpected happens. Instantly Kael's focus is on Cara. She is a panther, therefore guilty! He chases after her only to discover that she is not who he expected when he catches up with her. He has no choice but to take the necessary steps. He is intrigued by her compassion, something that doesn't exist in his world, specifically where panthers are concerned.

Kael starts to question what he has been led to believe for all of his life and finds that nothing is at it seems. His life has been full of deceit and betrayal. Learning the truth after all this time infuriates him and he decides to do whatever it takes to put things right. There is a rebellion against the current regime going on and Kael is the primary target.

Cara is compassionate and doesn't hesitate to save anyone, even her enemy! She is too trusting. Kael has been naive up until now but thanks to Cara, he is now wiser. Can a panther and a tiger restore the peace in Salja?

This story brings another concept to the shifter world. It's predictable in places but that doesn't take away the interest in knowing of how it all turns out. It's a great start to this new series.

I was kindly issued with an eARC via NetGalley. This is an honest review.
