Sinclair


Now that I had replaced Councilman James as leader of the panther shifters, I figured life would get a little easier. Boy, was I wrong. Between losing my mate and the attempts on my life, I have to find out what happened to seven missing shifter kids, and I don't know who I can trust.

 

Stone


I had made myself stay away from my mate for years out of a sense of guilt. That all ended when I discovered someone was out to get him. In order to keep Sinclair safe, I'll have to do something I never thought I'd do...ask for help.

 

Book Review

I had so much fun with Bob and Shade’s story, the first novella in this new series by Stormy Glenn, and I couldn't wait to see who would be featured next. Stone. *shiver* Talk about a rough, strong, yummy assassin. I couldn't wait to see how he would work with Sinclair, the current acting councilman of the panthers since the former was taken down for embezzling and other illegal activities. Stone is a panther shifter. Sinclair is a hyena and permanently relegated to a wheelchair after an assassin's bullet pierced his spine. I eagerly anticipated the heat coming from these two.

For whatever reason, Stone seems to believe he can't claim his mate, and Sinclair misunderstood something he said, so they're both being “super-stoopid-menz”. However, an internal plot to kill Sinclair gets Stone back to the council headquarters in order to protect his mate. There's also the question of the multiple teenage shifter children who have disappeared and the former scum-sucking councilman didn't bother to investigate. Sinclair is positive something is wrong so he sends Samson and Stryker to look into it.

“My situation isn’t too much different than yours, Shade, except I didn’t discover that Sinclair was my mate until after I pulled the trigger.”
“Oh shit!”
“Fuck me!”
“Dude!”
“That’s so sad.”
I expected the first three responses. Bob’s wasn’t one I thought I’d hear.”
(psst… in case you're wondering… I still love Bob)

It was so exciting to watch these seriously strong assassins hunt down whoever was targeting Sinclair. But the very best part was when they all became a pride (something unique to hyenas so that's all I'm saying) and now Stone, Sinclair, Shade, Bob, Samson, and Stryker, are a family. Oh, and don't forget Mustachio, Bob’s Maine Coon - he likes to go to the park on his leash - and he's absolutely part of the pride. *grins*

What a wonderful ending with a resolution to the missing teenagers and a surprise gift from Stone to Sinclair. Let's just say Mustachio might have a friend to go to the park with. Oh, I can't wait for the next installment - I adore this series and all of the men!
