I enjoyed it
I enjoyed the story. Read it in one day as I couldn’t put it away. Liked the characters and didn’t feel like they were overdone. On to book two....
I really enjoyed this book! Mai is a kitsune- a fox shifter. Her parents are both dead, so it’s up to her to provide for and protect her little sister Kira. Mai is just scraping by with her teaching job and earning money on the side by cage fighting. But then she loses her job and the social worker thinks she no longer can provide a secure home for Kira and is threatening to take her into foster care. And to top it all off a bunch of werewolves have come into town searching for a serial killer and want her to help in their investigation. Did I mention that wolf shifters hate fox shifters? So Mai’s life has suddenly gotten very complicated...
I was hooked shortly into the story. The plot was well developed and I had to know what would happen next! The magic of the kitsune intrigued me. While they can shift into a fox, they also have a star ball which is a part of their soul, and can be used to create tangible objects including a sword and clothing. I’m very curious to learn more about how it works! I also really liked all the characters in this story. Mai is a strong and feisty heroine and she’ll do anything to protect Kira. Kira is 12 and she’s a handful. She’s much more interested in magic tricks and gamboling as a fox than in doing her schoolwork. But she’s very lovable and you can see why Mai will do anything for her. Mai’s love interest is Gunner, an alpha werewolf who doesn’t realize she’s a fox shifter. He’s strong and is hell bent on protecting Mai no matter what. I’m very interested to see how their relationship will develop in the next book.
I’ll definitely have to read the next book in this series. I can’t wait to find out what happens!
