Harper Jewel is back with a new story in the Seekers series. I had been waiting for this story and I was not disappointed. Aviana, Andor, and Bertrand are enjoying their newfound match making responsibilities. When they recognize the mate auras of Slate and Evangeline they figure out a way to bring the two together and then let nature take its course.
I immediately liked Slate and Evie’s characters and thought they were a great match. Evie is a strong woman who has faced many tragedies in her life but despite being alone she has built a successful life for herself. Slate is tired of the fake plastic women that always seem to flock to him and his money. When the two meet each other for the first time it’s apparent to them both that there is a spark that they both want to explore further. Little do they know that Avi, Andor, and Bertrand are watching and waiting for the perfect time to spring the news on the happy couple that they are not only destined mates, but also bird shifters. I felt horrible for the struggle that Evie had when she shifted and the fact that Slate stood by her and helped her through it all made me love him even more.
You don’t find a lot of bird shifters in fiction and especially not stories that are this hot! Harper Jewel has me hooked on The Seekers series. She manages to put so much depth to her characters in such a way you forget that you’re reading a 65 page book and feel as if you had a full length novel to get to know them. Whether it’s the happy couple or the crazy stalker you have a clear picture of the people you are reading about. Burning Prey may have been a short novel, but it was never rushed and it had a very clear ending with a HEA that we all crave. I believe you’d have no problem reading Burning Prey as a standalone, but would suggest reading from the beginning because Avi, Andor, and Bertrand’s story was fantastic. I was so happy to read that there will be more Seekers stories coming in the future. I can’t wait to see who Avi, Andor, and Bertrand play matchmaker with next.
