Things are not always what they look like.
Adan has been in a catatonic state ever since the pride rescued him from one of Glass’ labs—or at least that’s what everyone thinks, even the doctors. Jared has tried to find a solution for a year, but Adan isn’t getting better. Jared’s last resource is finding Adan’s mate, and when he finally does, things start changing.
Yanis has been asked to check if he’s Adan’s mate, and when he finds out he is, he’s scared. He wants his mate to be better, but he has no idea how to help. Adan seems to be breaking down, though, so Yanis spends time with him, until something happens.
Adan has locked himself in his own mind, scared of what he’d do if he didn’t. He already hurt two men, and the last thing he wants is a repeat of that, but his mate’s presence by his side is making staying in his mind hard. Still, Adan has every intention of doing just that, but the power he’s been trying to suppress flares out, and Yanis is hit.
When Adan finally comes out of his self-imposed isolation, he’s immediately put to work. Time is running out to find the mole, and Adan helps as well as he can, but will it be enough?
Another month, another visit to Widedell. This time, we visit with Adan and Yanis. We first met Yanis in (we probably met him before in Gillham, but he didn’t stick with me then) the previous Whitedell Pride Book, Darin. He is a good friend to Cobra Shifter Ira. We also discovered in that book the he is the fated mate of catatonic shifter — and Glass Lab survivor — Adan.
Adan and Yanis’ story is one of acceptance, love, fear, and bravery. It is one of overcoming negative self-image and learning when to lean on a friend or lover.
As with many stories in this series, the journey from first blush to mating in rather quick. However along the way we are introduced to another new type of paranormal creature, find out more about the mole and the enemy and fall in love with two new members of the Whitedell Pride. We also get to see that Delevin will be finding his HEA soon enough. I for one am looking forward to that story and finally getting to know him as a character.
