Date Read: 2014, June 2, 2020
Clay Bennett grew up in the slums with his human mother, never knowing his changeling father. He has known his best friend Talin was his mate since they met. But he couldn’t control his animal when she was in danger and ended up losing his freedom and his mate. Years later Talin shows up from the dead asking for help. Clay refuses to let her leave him again.
This book introduced a lot more to the world of the psy-changelings. We have more information on the Protocol I implant, more Psy disruption, and The Forgotten. This world just keeps growing and becoming more diverse. I really love the complexity and uniqueness of this world and I think that is one of the reasons why this series is so good.
Talin McKade had a terrible upbringing in the foster system. She was abused and traumatized and is still struggling with PTSD from it. The only person she could ever rely on as a child was Clay and he was taken away from her. I liked how strong and determined Tally was when it came to finding and protecting the missing children. She was a mama bear. Watching her deal with her PTSD and learn to accept her past was very emotional and made me just like her more.
Clay has been the strong, stoic one. We haven’t really gotten much about him up till this point. We finally get to see the reasoning behind his darkness and animalistic side. While not my favorite changeling of the series, I did enjoy him overall. My biggest issue with Clay was that he got a bit judgmental about Tally’s past.
Overall, I am still loving this series and I cannot wait to find out what is going to happen with Protocol I.
