RT Rating

Leigh’s next Breed novel features a heroine who is emotionally damaged and stunted. Regrettably, for much of the book, her deep-seated prejudice, fear and almost intractable hatred make it difficult to comprehend the hero’s attraction to her. Thankfully Leigh does redeem her in the end. As in all Leigh novels, the sex is scorchingly intense, making the pages sizzle.

As a teenager, Storme Montague’s perception of the Breeds her father worked on was warped by her anger at his devotion to them. When Storme witnesses her father and her brother being brutally murdered by a Coyote Breed when the Council lab is liberated, her attitude is set.

Storme’s father was trying to help the Breeds and he had entrusted her with a data chip containing vital information. However, for the last 10 years, Storme has been on the run, refusing to give the data to anyone, whether Breed or Council.
Styx Mackenzie’s assignment is to capture the woman whose blood work implies she may be his breedmate. Overcoming the deeply rooted prejudices that Storme harbors will not be easy, and time is running out. (BERKLEY SENSATION, Oct., 304 pp., $7.99)

Styx's Storm

Submitted by hcabm on October 17, 2010 - 7:01am.

It was an excellent book and well written.

However, I had a few problems with the storyline.
I am use to the good breeds not harming or threatening innocents.

Therefore, I was not to impressed with their treatment of Storme. She was a witness to her father and brother brutal murder and entrusted with a vital data chip. She was told someone they trusted would come to retrieve the chip, but no one came. Ten years she has been chased by the breeds and council.

Then Styx came and under false pertinences’ captured her.
Styx has been tested and found to be a potential mate.

With all this intrigue and danger will Storme learn to trust and let go of her fears?

After being off put by the initial breeds callous treatment of Storme, I began to enjoy the story.

I contribute this change of heart to Styx's treatment of his potential mate.
