Review by: Braxton Cole on April 25, 2013 : Guardians of the Tri-Parenje: Shadows of Ecstasy, by Chastity Breeze, introduces highly charged world of the Panthera shape shifters.
Sloane Dasani goes for a run later than usual one night and rather than her normal, uneventful stress release routine, she runs headlong into danger. She witnesses rogue shifters committing murder and is placed into protective custody.
That’s where she meets Kade and Linc. The two sexy shifters are assigned to keep her safe. The develop an immediate, instinctual attraction and it doesn’t take long for them to realize that they are experiencing Tri-Parenje.
The Tri-Parenje is a coupling, or lifetime mating, between a human female and two male Panthera shifters. As they introduce Sloane to their world, the also awaken in her sexual desires that had previously lain dormant.
Props to Chastity for creating an interesting and complex world. We barely scratched the surface of their complicated hierarchy and rivalry with another clan, so another book in the series better be on the way.
The characters are hot and feed every alpha male fantasy. Chastity’s writing is crisp and clean. Y’all know what a stickler I am for good editing and I didn’t find a single typo. Two thumbs up on the editing.
My favorite part of the story was Chastity’s fearless use of language. She didn’t tiptoe around taboo subjects, but rather grabbed them and owned the situation. Great exploration of human sexuality.
There were a few unresolved story lines that I am left questioning, but they definitely won’t keep you from enjoying the book. This is a novella length work and the world Chastity has created is almost too big for the length. I'd love to see her expand their world into a full-length novel and give the nuance of the story more room to play.
If you’re looking for a good urban fantasy with an unrepentant approach to sex, this book is for you.
