Three trials, Victor Canidae had to complete and in doing so-he'd successfully earn Nerina Simpson as his mate.
Three Trials. For him only.
But the Goddess Selene has plans of her own. Plans that are far reaching and affect not only Pack Canidae, but Clan Denali. A concern that has all of the Northern territory pulling out their claws.
The council all agree, Nerina is not the answer, in turn, bringing back insecurities and concerns, Victor thought long buried. But with this new twist in the mix, there's only three things either of them can do.
Face their fears.
Face each other.
And above all, do not fail.
This book is short and to the point, a beautiful bridge between Arctic Bound and Dire Cravings if I do say so myself. The Reaping pretty much finishes up what fans were waiting for when Arctic Bound ended, and it hints at even more trouble for our favorite wolf pack in the next book.
The sex is sparse.. to be fair it's about non existence. There's only one sex scene, but with the Trials going on, the reader won't even notice, or care about the lack of bestial love-making that Victor and Nerina are known for.
What this novella doesn't lack in, is action. From page one there's something going. This book is a bit more fast paced than Arctic Bound was, but at the same time the story isn't rushed. As stated it's the perfect bridge between book 1 and book 2.
This is a quick read, less than 25k words, so it shouldn't take more than a few hours to leave, and if you're a fan of Tigris Eden, you'll be begging for more when you get done.
I look forward to the next installment of this series.
