4 out of 5 Stars
Clay Bennett is a powerful DarkRiver sentinel, but he grew up in the slums with his human mother, never knowing his changeling father. As a young boy without the bonds of Pack, he tried to stifle his animal nature. He failed...and committed the most extreme act of violence, killing a man and losing his best friend, Talin, in the bloody aftermath. Everything good in him died the day he was told that she, too, was dead. Talin McKade barely survived a childhood drenched in bloodshed and terror. Now a new nightmare is stalking her life--the street children she works to protect are disappearing and turning up dead. Determined to keep them safe, she unlocks the darkest secret in her heart and returns to ask the help of the strongest man she knows... Clay lost Talin once. He will not let her go again, his hunger to possess her, a clawing need born of the leopard within. As they race to save the innocent, Clay and Talin must face the violent truths of their past...or lose everything that ever mattered.
Another great PsyChangeling story by Nalini Singh. Talin, former love interest of Clay, seeks his help with finding missing street children she works with. The only thing is that Clay thinks Talin's dead. When Clay sees her, game on. Clay decides no matter what has happened, Talin will never leave him again. I loved Clay's character but Talin's I'm still on the fence for. She was very flighty but it's understandable considering her background. While Talin is working with Clay, she has to fight her feelings and keep her secrets so she can leave him again when it's over. What she doesn't know is that Clay has already decided she is his mate, and he will never seek another. This story spends more time on the history of Talin and Clay instead of the missing kids which works. I like gettting to know my characters and creating a bond for future stories. I am anxiously awaiting the next book.
