This is the start of an urban fantasy series which brings everyday life and spirit shifters together.
This book brings with is Native American motifs about spirit animals who are guides. It takes some twists from there as you can if your link is strong enough transmorph into that animal though it is larger.
Blake is a strong character who is put between the rock and the hard place. For him there is his loyalty to the government which he has served and the loyalty to his people.
Chogan is the cousin of Blake though more militaristic in nature. He is an alpha male role and wants to make sure they are thr ones who rule instead of being ruled.
The Dr. Is another matter as she seems to hold the very nature of the shifters in the palm of her hand.
What could possibly go wrong with that.?
A compelling read that brings out the worst in some people and the best in others.
This is my 4th book by this author each one so different. To me this has to be one of the best books I have read by the author
