In a world hidden within our own, magical beings live among us, capable of transforming into majestic animals… if they find their mate. Kingdoms of these enigmatic beings, called beastwalkers, have existed for centuries, each species governed by their own regal king and queen. One thing the courts crave above all else are the animi—human females who can unlock a beastwalker’s ability to shift into their animal forms.
Lola Katz is known for three things, talking too much, being obsessed with paranormal romance books, and her two-toned skin. Lola’s vitiligo makes her feel both invisible and a specimen under a microscope at the same time. The nineteen-year-old, New York City waitress has no plans further than attending community college and hanging out with her two besties, Katy and Maddie. But when she starts seeing men with exotic, animal-like features, Lola starts to believe she’s losing her grip on reality.
Then Lola meets Callon Leo, the prince of the Kingdom of Claws. Callon is handsome, enigmatic, and thinks of nothing else but his duty to his kingdom. When he uncovers the resurgence of animi abductions—a practice strictly forbidden by the council of shamans—he vows to put a stop to it by any means necessary. But Callon finds his focus shifting from his royal duties to thoughts of Lola, her captivating presence permeating his every waking moment.
At the same time, Lola cannot seem to banish thoughts of the enigmatic prince from her mind. As she unravels the truth behind Callon’s sudden interest in her, Lola discovers her own place within a supernatural conflict between the kingdoms, where love, loyalty, and her own unique power intertwine.
You’re gonna love this.
Quinn has done it again. This book does not disappoint. This is an amazing story and you fall in love with the characters. I love that not everyone is perfect but they love each other and support each other. This is such a great read and I can’t wait for the next one to come out.
I have been a longtime fan of Quinn’s writing, but to be honest I was a tad skeptical of picking up this shifter romance after many failed attempts at reading other authors’ takes on the genre. But boy was I proved wrong! Kingdom of Claws opened my eyes to a whole new fantasy world and immediately drew me in. The characters, story, lore, and romance were all fantastically written. I loved every second of reading this book, and I cannot wait to see how the rest of the series plays out.
Kingdom of Claws
This is book 1 in Kingdom of Claws by Quinn Loftis. If you have read any of Quinn’s other books and loved them then you will not be disappointed in this one. It has her unique writing style that makes you feel what the characters are going through. It’s full of laughter, suspense and shocking moments. I loved the Lion shifters and getting hints of other shifters that are coming. I couldn’t put the book down and it was over way too soon. Looking forward to reading more of this wonderful series.
