*I received this book as a WiP from the Author in exchange for editing services*
It's time for The Reaping! Victor and Nerina are excited to finally be able to do the ritual and be together in a way the packs can't argue with. However, The Reaping isn't fun and games. Victor must survive three trials to get his female. And while he's doing that, the goddess Selene has decided that Nerina will be more than simply Luna of Pack Canidae.
This book is short and to the point, a beautiful bridge between Arctic Bound and Dire Cravings if I do say so myself. The Reaping pretty much finishes up what fans were waiting for when Arctic Bound ended, and it hints at even more trouble for our favorite wolf pack in the next book.
The sex is sparse.. to be fair it's about non existence. There's only one sex scene, but with the Trials going on, the reader won't even notice, or care about the lack of bestial love-making that Victor and Nerina are known for.
What this novella doesn't lack in, is action. From page one there's something going. This book is a bit more fast paced than Arctic Bound was, but at the same time the story isn't rushed. As stated it's the perfect bridge between book 1 and book 2.
This is a quick read, less than 25k words, so it shouldn't take more than a few hours to leave, and if you're a fan of Tigris Eden, you'll be begging for more when you get done.
I look forward to the next installment of this series.
