Gideon’s latest is tough to get through. Too many shallow secondary characters make it difficult to care about or even pay attention to what’s happening. Compounding this is a lack of transition from one scene to the next and a serious dearth of visual description — way too much of the book consists of nothing but dialogue. In fact, the only strong visuals are the sex scenes, though aside from the first one, even those are too repetitive to be titillating.

This is a love story between shifter Silas MacCreedy, who is also a detective, and Monica Fraser, a female shifter and assassin. Monica is special because most females of the race actually can’t shift. As the two battle the politics within the criminal underbelly and the shifter world, sparks fly.
