A decade in captivity tore away all hope.
But Margery never lost her resolve to help the sick. The village she’d hoped to serve as banfasa, caring for the ill and injured, is long gone. Humans captured the young shifters and killed the adults. Finally rescued, she has a chance at her dreams—at least for meaningful work. With her leg crippled and her face scarred, she knows she has no hope of ever finding love.
Tynan is ready to find their mate.
After years away from his littermate as a police officer among humans, Tynan is finally home, a beta in the wolf pack, and serving his people as a law officer. Assigned as Margery’s mentor in the pack, he patiently works to earn the skittish little wolf’s trust. Her captivity has left her with problems, including a fear of uniforms. But he’s a fixer at heart—and he’s starting to want more from the gentle female than just friendship.
Donal has no intention of making a family.
Separated from his littermate for years, Donal has remained unmated, devoting his energies to healing. Believing ugly rumors about their new neighbor—a banfasa—he won't have her in his clinic or his life—no matter what his newly returned brother wants.
But a feral shifter’s attack on Tynan shows Margery in a whole different light. She’s levelheaded, compassionate, sweet—and far too appealing. What male could resist her?
But even as the brothers work to win their mate, cruel forces move to crush their entire clan.
It has been over two years since we’ve gotten a new book in The Wild Hunt Legacy Series by Cherise Sinclair and I’ve missed it immensely. Although a few of the stories can be read as standalones, I highly recommend you read them in order to get the most out of them. If you don’t want to read them all, then at least read Leap of the Lion, as Margery’s story really begins there.
Speaking of Margery, I freaking loved her. She was held captive by the Scythe for over a decade before she was able to escape with the help of the Tynan, Donal and crew. At first things didn’t go well and it took awhile before she found herself in the North Cascades Territory with Donal and Tynan. She had heart, was loyal to those who deserved it, and had an inner strength that shone through despite her past.
Donal is the territory’s lovable but grumpy as hell healer that I’ve become rather fond of as he’s grouched his way through healing some of my favorite characters. Tynan is his brother that had spent the past decade in the city at the order of a god as he waited to fulfill his destiny—finding the compound where Margery and the rest of her village women and children had been held captive all these years.
Well placed lies and some miscommunications weren’t the least of the issues facing the trio. Margery suffered from some severe PTSD from her captivity, and Tynan and Donal had a few things to work through too. Namely being separated all these years. They weren’t on the same page at all when it came to Margery. In fact, Donal had some backtracking to do, and even some groveling, but he did redeem himself well.
I loved their story and I loved catching back up with my favorite characters from past books in the series. But the best part of all was what I would call the finale. Ms. Sinclair had me on the edge of my seat with my heart in my throat and I loved every single word of it.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, if you like paranormal romance read this series. It just keeps getting better and better.
