Review: This is book 4 in the Guardian City series, and whilst can be read as a standalone, I recommend people to read in order to understand the entire story. All the matings involve ménage relationships, which I’m sure will please many people. This actually also leads to my first comment too, Grace Lynn has created a fantastic and intricate universe within this single series. Overall, I have enjoyed this series, this book perhaps more so than the others.
A main part of my enjoyment was Jack, one of the MC’s, is the most adorable bunny shifter. His actions, just as the author intended, are just like an actual rabbit. Because of his bunny genes, he’s a little scared of his stronger mates. He is also the smart and dedicated doctor of Guardian City, so we see Demend and his mates from the first two books pop up for his help or are approached for help.
Blake was actually a minor character in the previous book. And after the situation he forced to live in, it’s nice to see that’s he’s been given some freedom to do as please and find his happily ever after. Blake stumbles upon his second mate Cast, while he’s on his way back to Guardian City with supplies. Cast is an interesting one. He at first comes across as not so much weak, but rather a damsel-in-distress, but by the end of it he’s got a tough attitude and he’s willing to do anything for his mates.
There’s a minor character, a little demon named Acotas, who is also insanely adorable. He reminds me a bit of the frightened rabbit caught in headlights, to take an analogy from Jack. I don’t know if this series will ever continue, but regardless, I love this character. The story line that he is involved with, the “peril” that is face by the three mates in the book, is quite well played out, although I don’t think the actual danger is fully conveyed to reader. Like the rest of this series, the directly to the point manner in which it is written, makes it a perfect type of book to read in an hour or a few (depending how fast you read!).
Read the series, it’s a good way to pass a relaxing day, or whatever. It’s easy to read, well written and the description of setting is great!
