Book Summary:

A love against all odds . . .
A battle against ancient forces . . .
He was once a king, turned into a bear as punishment for his cruel and selfish deeds.
She was a once a princess, now living in the form of a hound.
Wary companions, they are sent, in human form, back to a time when magic went terribly astray. Together they must right the wrongs caused by this devastating power, if only they can find a way to trust each other. But even as their attraction grows, an old evil resurfaces, and they risk losing each other and destroying magic forever.
I really enjoyed reading this book. I felt the story and plot line were very solid. I could relate to the characters and was drawn into the story. And I thought it was a beautiful story. And I found their mixture of human and animal?intriguing?and their struggle between their?two sides?fascinating. I liked seeing how they helped each other become better and how they both grew throughout the novel.
?
Each chapter alternated between the bear and the hound’s?points of view. For the most part I liked this, but sometimes I would want to see an event though the other’s eyes. Also, sometimes the story would jump forward in time before I felt ready for that to happen, though I think this ties back to wanting to see an event through the other point of view or at least get the other’s take on what had happened. I do realize, however, that doing so would have made the book much longer.?
?
Overall, I really enjoyed reading this book. And I thought it a great follow-up to The Princess and the Hound.
