Welcome to my stop for Sarai’s Fortune by Abigail Owen.
I have a lot to share, so lean back and sit a spell.
I love the gorgeous covers and they hint at all the goodness inside.
Besides Sarai’s Fortune, Book II, I will also be sharing my review for Andromeda’s Fall, Book I, by Abigail Owen.
I hope you enjoy meeting Abigail’s cast of characters as much as I did and by sure to enter the giveaway at the end of the post!
I loved the first book, Andromeda’s Fall by Abigail Owen (see my review below), so I am very excited to read more in Sarai’s Fortune, Book II. Sarai’s Fortune picks up right where Andromeda’s Fall left off.
Sarai is a seer and a cougar shapeshifter. She ends up staying with Zac and his polar bear clan, because of the danger represented in the Carstair’s werewolf clan. She is petite, but a fighter. People see her as weak, shy and needing protection, but she is proficient in martial arts and her skill with knives is unsurpassed.
Zac is all man, except when he is a polar bear. LOL
The fight scenes are fantastic and the love scenes are not erotic, but adult. The cast of characters had me eating out of their hands, wanting to know what happens next. The world building made it easy for me to visualize the surroundings. Abigail Owens ability to spin a tale captivated me and I look forward to reading more of her work
I received a copy of Sarai’s Fortune in return for an honest review.
Zac Montclair’s first priority is to protect his people. With the escalating war between factions of shifters over land and resources, he has agreed to an alliance between his polar bears and the Shadowcat Nation of cougar shifters. But the treaty comes with a condition…he must accept one of their Seers into his Timik and put her under his personal protection.
Sarai Bouchard doesn’t need her supernatural gift to know that Kyle Carstairs’s obsession with controlling her ability will eventually result in her misery and demise. Her power is essential to her people’s survival, so when Kyle goes rogue, she’s sent to Zac Montclair to keep her safe. However, her visions reveal that while staying will lead to their becoming lovers, it also leads to his death. Leaving Zac will result in her own.
If Sarai can’t find a way to change the future, she will be forced to choose…save her lover or save herself.
I am loving this cover and am really curious about the Shadowcat Nation. It sounded different than the books I have read about shapeshifters and I am always on the lookout for a new slant on a familiar story.
The quick love is not a problem. They are “animals”, so they don’t waste any time. I wish Abigail would have expanded on it a little bit more. Since blogging, I have come to enjoy learning more about the characters and why they do what they do.
Andromeda is a strong, kickass female. She’s intelligent, fierce and a fighter, yet she likes the girlie girl things too. She can be a softie and is a big romantic.
I can relate to Andromeda’s fight or flight feelings. Without training, I think I would be more reactive than proactive. Not so, Andromeda.
I thought I knew a lot of what would happen, but Abigail Owen threw in some curve balls that I didn’t see coming. The wide variety of shifters made Andromeda’s Fall a novel and original story for me. I mean a polar bear? Have you read of a polar bear shifter before?
The first time they made love drew a laugh from me and I love their snarky banter.
The big fight scene is fully developed and detailed. Even though I knew the winners, I was totally engrossed.
Sarai appears in physical form at the end and I can hardly wait to read her story.
Even if fated, can a person’s choice change that?
I thoroughly enjoyed reading Andromeda’s story. Abigail Owen took a familiar storyline, added her twists and originality, making this a great story and hooking me on the series.
I received Andromeda’s Fall by Abigal Owen in return for an honest review.
Andromeda Reynolds is being hunted. After witnessing her mother’s violent death at the hands of a pack of wolf shifters, Andie has devoted her life to protecting her community of cougar shifters from a similar fate. But now, a greater threat lies within her own pack, and she must run. If she stays, Kyle Carstairs will force their mating, seeking the added political power their union would provide.
Andie would rather chew off her own foot than end up with Kyle. Though, knowing him, she won’t live long either way. Andie’s only hope of survival is to mate Jaxon Keller, the Alpha of the Keller Dare with which she is seeking asylum. But before she can get to him, Andie must first go through A.J., one of the Alpha’s Protectors. What Andie doesn’t realize is that A.J. has secrets of his own. All Andie knows is that the incredibly frustrating shifter insists on challenging her story, her skills, her trust… and her heart.
