After a decade, Abraham Tuttle, has returned to the place where it all began and ended so heartbreakingly. He is now back at the Army Ranger school as an instructor. The dreams are coming often and more intense than ever when he dreams of his destined lover, The Great Thunderbird, who tells him that they are mates. Abe can’t quite accept it because unlike Ethan, he cannot shift into an eagle form to fly with his mate. Abe wishes that it all could have been true, but he lost his chance with Ethan long ago.
Ethan Quaderer has regretted his words to his lover for ten long years. Those frustrated hard words that made Abraham disappear out of him life, but now he has a second chance because they are both back at Ft. Benning and he still has the lake cabin. He will try once again to do what it takes to have his destined mate back in his life and try to convince Abe that he must believe in them and their destiny together.
I absolutely loved the mythology and tone of this story. I found both men engaging even though there wasn’t much time to do more than sketch out their characters. The plot and conflict were strong. However, I really felt that this one suffered from the shortened page count. It needed more time to develop and to tease out the relationship and characters and take its time smoothing into the transitions.
So in the end, I liked the promise of this one, but just wanted more to take it from likeable to amazing.
My thanks to Net Galley for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an honest review.
