DRINK OF ME
This is an excellent, relationship-driven story, à la Elizabeth Vaughan’s Warprize. While spinning romance, Frank also creates a fascinating world of many species and lands. Hopefully, we can visit again.
Ruele, the Prime of the shunned Sange race, is on a mission to rescue one of his pack mates who is being tortured by the despised Jakals, those who feed on emotional pain and fear. During his mission Ruele finds a woman hidden in the wreck of the house. When they get back to the Sange keep, the mystery girl cleans up into a beautiful mystery woman, with no memory and a powerful healing ability. She adapts well to the Sange, which is very different from the usual outsider response. As the overwhelming attraction between Ruele and Mysteria (as they name her) grows, will their feelings and her acceptance in the community survive Jakal attacks and Yesu hunters? And what about her returning memories? (ZEBRA, Nov., 384 pp., $7.99)
