Second chances and honey sandwiches…..
This is the fourth in the Glacial Blood series and Zain has got to be one of my most favourite series characters… he is a bear-shifter with two loves….Isobel, the young woman he left behind five years earlier to protect both her and his own secret, and honey sandwiches..
The alternative universe continues to fascinate and shock…. the series deals with topics of prejudice and intolerance and this particular storyline is no exception…..the evil machinations of Nuka notch up another gear supported by a number of other sinister, power crazed and damaged individuals who are willing to kidnap, torture and even murder to achieve their aims… but whilst the darker themes and serious messages are there, this is not a heavy read.. there is plenty of humour and banter between the characters, in particular amongst the members of the Glacial Blood Pack and the friends and family who align themselves with them, providing lighter moments……
Whilst each book focuses on a different couple the underlying storyline continues as a thread throughout… power struggles, betrayal, fear and loss are all there… but at the heart there is a disparate and quirky pack of magical men and women bound by loyalty and love who are ready to fight to protect their very own special brand of family.. this is a bittersweet, second chance paranormal romance, and I loved it….
