My Review: Note: We don't normally review urban fantasy here on Bitten but this was a special request and it kinda blurs the lines between paranormal romance and urban fantasy. What creative characters and an imaginative story line Wolfe has come up with! It is a delightful foray into the legends of Atlantis, King Arthur and the Faerie Kingdoms combined with past lives of the female lead. Jaguar shifters, a Starbourne, a master illusionist, a shaman, the fey, the Queen of Darkness, zombies, a medallion, a special doorway, a soul thief and a journey round out the story. Mira, the female lead, has always just known things and has been able to tell how people felt. She meets a jaguar shifter who, after almost giving her a heart attack, tells her she needs to go to Denver on a journey where four men will help her find the answers. She learns later all four are immortal and they had all loved one of her past life selves. And because these woman are still apart of her, all four are her soulmates. This is an urban fantasy story that flirts with being a paranormal romance. There are a couple of steamy scenes with the female lead and two of the four soulmates (individually, not a three-some). The other two soulmates are kinda left out in the cold. {grin} This could make a great full length novel by adding more to the exploration of the relationship with each soulmate and their interactions with each other. As it is, the main characters are mostly on the go trying to complete the journey all the while the main antagonist is hurling obstacles in their way. I enjoyed this story and I think urban fantasy and fantasy fans will like this as well.

This story pulled me in from the start and wouldn't let me go....

Miranda's review Nov 10, 11 Read in October, 2011 I got this book as part of the Adopt an Indie event going on right now. This is the first work of Lenore Wolf that I have read and let me tell you I will be going back to check out what else she has available. This story pulled me in from the start and wouldn’t let me go till I had finished it. The way she weaves emotion throughout the book is very well done from the pain of losing loved ones, to the true hatred of those that took them. The strength of a woman determined to keep what is rightfully hers, to a love that comes on so fast and so strong it scares both involved. I loved how Amanda would do anything to keep what is hers. Her strength, determination, and faith in herself and her spiritual teachings. It is an inspiration to us all. I loved the weaving of romance, mystery, and intense spiritual belief that comes out of the pages. A great western romance, with a twist that pierces your heart. Amanda and Hawk are a couple you want to root for, though at times you want to shake one of them and say wake up, look right in front of you.
