It can’t get much worse than raining rocks from the sky, can it? But wait, yes it can! With the sky rocks came major changes to the planet and the creatures that inhabit it. And so a new civilization was born, divided by the Impact Zone; old west on the left without any technology and snooty east on the right with technology. You are stuck where you were when the rocks began to fall, since crossing the Zone is near impossible. Enter our hero who has the ability to sense those around him. He’s assigned to assist Thais in her mission to get information she needs to catch the man who killed her tribe. What she doesn’t count on is falling for him. And Hinto is shocked to find he feels the same. As they tap-dance around one another trust is born, and from that love. Two loners by definition and actions, Thais and Hinto form an unbreakable bond as they seek vengeance and justice.
This was an awesome walk on the wild side. A surplus of thought and imagination went into crafting this unique world and the romance that goes with it. While I thoroughly got into Hinto and Thais, I’ve got to admit Hinto’s carnivorous steed Beast stole the show for me a time or two. While over half the book is foreplay, watch out when Hinto and Thais finally consummate their feelings and cement their relationship. I can’t wait to read Thais’ sister’s stories.
