3 stars – I liked it

Dare is an outcast among his own kind. The silver-scaled Dracheon warrior can’t control his beast. While searching for his mate in the Refuge, Kralj tasks him with escorting a rebel warrior to the settlement. He meets his mate Faylee, who is a thief and everyone thinks she is a boy.

This was another good alien romance. I liked Faylee a lot. She was an extremely skilled thief but she also is very giving and kind. She looks out for those around her, especially those who struggle to survive. Her thievery was amusing once she was in the Refuge and I like that she will keep Dare on his toes. 


Dare has been an outcast to his people all his life. He is an alpha male who is terrified of losing control of his beast and hurting someone, especially his mate. Now that he has a mate he is determined to return so he isn’t permanently exiled. But as more time goes by he realizes that having a family you can rely on is more important than claiming his heritage. 

This was another enjoyable fated mates romance in the Refuge. I really enjoyed this couple and their adventure. The side characters in this one were quite enjoyable too, especially Vicuska (her book is Dark Arsenal). I love how diverse and dangerous the Refuge is.
