Blurb: American med student Duncan Stirling is traveling around India with his two best friends, who have just married. Their last stop is the magical city of Jaisalmer, a fort in the Thar Desert of Rajasthan. He feels like a third wheel on their honeymoon, though the three friends had the trip planned for years, to celebrate finishing medical school and have a last adventure before they start their residencies back in the States.
Akash Nandi is an Indian man from a wealthy and well-known family. At least that’s how he appears. He hides the truth that his family is descended from Nandi, Lord Shiva’s bull, and they’ve guarded sacred places for millennia. Being gay and immortal is tough, especially when his family’s expectations make finding the right mate impossible.
As his grandmother, the family matriarch, nears death, a struggle for power puts Akash and his new crush, the charming American Duncan, in harm’s way.
Review: I really never thought about cow shifters or that they would be sacred I suppose. I think in all of my readings I have only came across one other story that had a cow shifter, or bull shifter. They are kind of quirky and definitely this author has made a unique hit with it.
Duncan and his two best friends have decided to travel India. They are going to Jaisalmer, which is a fort in the Thar Desert of Rajasthan. It would seem that Duncan has caught the eye of a bull shifter. Akash is a well-known young man who has his eyes on Duncan. However it would seem that someone else has noticed the two together.
This one was pretty good. I liked the unique telling of this story. Although I hate to say that it was not really my kind of story though. I did have fun reading it though, and would recommend it.
