In a world where a werecat virus has changed society, Roan McKichan, a born infected and ex-cop, works as a private detective solving crimes involving other infecteds.
Tiger strain infections start showing up all over Seattle, much to Roan's dismay, and worse yet, they may have a personal connection. Meanwhile, Roan gets hired to look into the puzzling death of Dee's former lover. Then the FBI wants him to investigate a new apocalypse cult of infecteds pushing for a violent revolution against normals. All around Roan, events are spiraling out of control. Just when his singular abilities are needed most, Roan develops new symptoms that might signify dire consequences if he doesn’t stop shifting at will. Roan finds himself at a crossroads and must make a difficult decision about his future.
This is the beautiful first meeting of soul mates. It's heartbreaking, for those like me who know how that story ends, but it's a sort of privilege to be able to see two people who were born to be together meet and recognize they're meant for each other. It's great to see how the main characters complement each other and their dialogs are lively and funny. Even if there is a sort of sadness, the undertones are not hopeless, because what the author was able to convey is the dignity of Paris even in the bad place he is at the moment. And Roan is a caring, badass, no-bullshit hero, who speaks more through his deeds than his words.
I've been hooked on Roan's story since book one and have really enjoyed reading each and every book in the series.
