Blurb: Divine Death had been on a mission since the day he understood the torture others were willing to inflict on him and his kind—to kill them all. As an Amur Leopard shifter, his ability to sneak up on anyone made him one of the best assassins in the world, but it came at cost, the loss of his soul.
Pacey Chapman was someone who liked to hide from…well, everything. Having been hurt in the past by too many people to count, including his own family. As a bunny shifter, he was considered weak—prey—both descriptions fit him far too well, especially when he was afraid of his own shadow.
The moment Divine and Pacey met, their worlds tilted. But how does a hardened assassin and a terrified bunny find a way to coexist? Fortunately, Fate has a plan that allows Pacey to discover being brave isn’t about not being afraid, while Death discovers it’s possible to have the one thing he thought impossible—a soul.
Review: Pacey and several of this siblings were kicked out when they were teenagers just because their parents couldn’t afford to feed them. Pacey was the only one that had no place to go. He has been hurt by not only his family but by many others. So he feared anything and any one. He is a cute bunny shifter that lived through a horrible time and many thought he was prey. So imagine this cute bunny shifter meeting Death.
Death has spent most of his life in a lab being tortured and experimented on. He didn’t feel anything for anyone. He killed because he was good at it. He is also a leopard shifter who is mated to a bunny shifter.
It has been some time since I read the first book for this series and the books from the one that is connected to it. So I was not as in tuned with it as I would have been had I read all the books at once. The characters are pretty cool to read about and their stories will have you in tears. Two different lives living in horrible situations came out of it with two different reactions and this author managed to hit it on the nail. What each went through was different they still manage to heal the other. This world that they live in was pretty unique and I liked hearing about it, in a way. I felt bad for Koda though, but your going to have to read to figure out that statement.
I can honestly say that Pacey will be my favorite in this story. I do admit that I think the story came off a bit rushed especially Pacey’s part. One moment he is so fearful but then he is basically jumping Death. It also felt just a bit jumbled and didn’t flow as well as it should have for me. Other wise it was a great story.
I enjoyed reading it and look forward to reading the next book.
