It's finally Travis's turn at getting a mate. Travis has been present through the whole series and the brunt of the other shifters jokes. He might be accident prone and kind of a mamma's boy (major under statement) but he's also a man and is coming into his own. He knows who he wants, but he's been working for two years on how to get her. It seems the time might finally be at hand; he just needs to kill someone.
The Kodiak Point series has been an absolute delight. The characters and their eventual mates all make an appearance during Travis and Jessica's "courtship." Jess is married to a shifter who hasn't been around for three years and she's had it. So she's going to do something about it. And Travis isn't going to let her do it alone, even though she has never encouraged him in any way. These two both know the other is interested but not the depth. The background story reaches it's final conclusion and while the author threw me a curve ball I still had one bad guy pegged. The bulk of the story focuses on the mission and the mystery nemesis Naga, but Jess and Travis manage some steamy moments together. And I really liked the surprise reveal when things looked their bleakest.
An epilogue was included with little glimpses into the lives of everyone I've come to know and love. Recommend, but read the whole series since the background story isn't something you can just "pick up."
