She risked her life to save a human child. Pain was her reward.
All her life, Emma longed for someone to love. Instead, disaster sees the brand-new bard banished from her people for long lonely years. Injured saving a child, the werebear has to steal food from humans, breaking shifter Law. The territory’s Cosantir and his lethal grizzly warrior catch her in the act. To her surprise, she’s healed and welcomed. Obviously, they don’t know her past. But oh, she can’t resist being around other shifters—especially the captivatingly powerful warrior. Maybe she can stay…just a little while.
As a grizzly warrior, Ben is ordered to house the pretty werebear until she heals. His littermate abandoned him, his home is empty, and he’s been alone for a long time. Intelligent and sweet and lushly curved, Emma is a delight…even if she is oddly reticent about her past. Although having sworn off females, he’s sorely tempted by this one. Damned if he doesn’t want to keep her, secrets or not.
Females were trouble. Years past, one split Ryder from his littermate. Now the panther shifter is returning to Ben, bringing his cub with him, a four-year-old he stole from the abusive female. To Ryder’s annoyance, his brother is sheltering a wounded bear. A female. Even worse, she’s beautiful and gentle and loving—damned if he’s going to fall for that act again. But when the dark of the moon arrives and death reigns supreme, he’ll discover that not all females are alike.
In a world filled with hellhounds and pixies, can three lonely shifters and one silent cub create a new family together?
Eventide of the Bear is book #3 in the Wild Hunt Legacy series by Cherise Sinclair.
The best one yet!!!!
We met Ben in one or both of the earlier books and I thought he was a pretty great background character and this was his book. I was right! He’s awesome! His littermate, Ryder, is just as fantastic and I loved this book! What a treat!
There is so much about this book that I love.
- The writing itself is so fantastic that it just flows effortlessly. It seems like only minutes and you’ve read like 15 or 20 chapters and can hardly believe that a couple of hours went by. You don’t even realize that you’re reading, instead you feel like you’re there! Dangling off one of the tree limbs like the pixies and throwing sticks at the wolves.
- The characters are amazing. Ben & Ryder as I mentioned above are just yummy and awesome. Emma is really great and a lot stronger then she thought she was. She’s awesome! My favourite character has been in all three books and it’s Callum the Cosantir! Ahhhh, I can’t say enough about him. People are scared of him because he has laws to uphold, but he’s just such an amazing leader and I adore the fact that he’s in every book. He’s got a fun sneaky little side to him. He’s so adorable. Matter of fact, not just Callum returns in each book. They all come back. I love it!
- The one thing about this book that was so much fun was all of the “BEAR” references. Like the fact that Ben and Emma’s backs were itchy and they rubbed them on trees. The honey on his toast. So may more that I can’t even remember them all. They were so funny. I don’t recall any in the other shifter stories, but the bear ones were so obvious and I laughed each time. I’m sure they were there in the other books, but I’m kind of partial to bears so maybe that’s why I picked up on them. Loved that!
- The story itself was pretty amazing and so true to life with regard to children being the victims of broken marriages or split homes. The thing that struck me about this story was how Cherise Sinclair showed how fathers have to struggle harder to prove themselves worthy when mothers don’t always have to. It’s a very real and sometimes very unfair thing that happens daily. Obviously not all fathers are worthy just like not all mothers are worthy but to me it just seems that the fathers always have to do more to prove themselves than mothers do. I thought it was amazing that Sinclair touched on this. Also the fact that abused children isn’t always abused by the fathers.
Cherise Sinclair did it again and I’m so in love with this series. I cannot wait for more! Loved it! Loved it! LOVED IT!!!!
