Blurb: In the new Leopard novel by the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Cat’s Lair and Leopard’s Prey, passions explode like wildfire when a young woman’s feral instincts are ignited by a man who’s too dangerous not to desire…
A simple request for Siena Arnotto: deliver a gift to her grandfather’s friend. One look at Elijah Lospostos, hard-bodied and stripped to the waist, and Siena succumbs to a feline stirring she never felt before, and to Elijah’s reckless and pleasurable demands. But when that pulse-throbbing moment ends in the murder of an unexpected intruder, Elijah accuses the shaken and confused Siena of setting him up.
Then Siena discovers the truth of her Leopard heritage, of the secrets in her grandfather’s inner circle, and the sinister plot of revenge that has put her in jeopardy. When Siena’s grandfather is assassinated, she realizes the only man she can trust is Elijah. Now as her Leopard rises from within, Siena and Elijah share not only an animal instinct for survival—but a desire so raw and wild it may be the only thing that can save them.
Thoughts: I’ve always loved the leopard series by Christine Feehan, and this one started out no different. From the beginning, it grabbed my attention and had my expectations rising on what a great book this was going to be. However, after the first few chapters, it was quickly apparent that I had a few issues. First off, the attention-grabbing start was quick to fizzle out. Second, the plot and the vibe of the book began to sound like too many others in the series – so much so, that if I hadn’t known better I would swear I had read it before. What is really sad to me? The fact that this series might actually be starting to dwindle down for me, along with some of the other series I used to love by this author (Carpathians, for example). I really, really hope that that is not the case and that I will continue to love this series, but we will see I guess.
I’ll be curious to see what my thoughts are on the new Ghostwalker book releasing in early 2016, once I’ve had a chance to read it.
