Title: Ancient Sentinel

Series: Ancients Rising #7

This was a very sweet, low-angst friends to lovers story! Grace and Ren have been friends for a while now and they both have feelings for each other. When they get tasked with helping out a small community on the outskirts of King’s territory they finally have a chance to act on those feelings.
Unlike some of the previous books, this one was pretty low-angst and focused mainly on Grace and Ren, which I loved. Grace was a smart and kind woman who does her best to help others. I loved seeing her making friends with the women in this new group and trying to push a couple to admit their feelings. She was just a sweet woman who had been in love with her friend Ren for a long time.
Ren is a jaguar shifter who has known Grace was his mate since he met her. He doesn’t admit his feelings for her because of Grace’s past with men. He was a sweet man who tried to let Grace set the pace of their relationship, and was willing to keep her as just a friend for as long as necessary. Like I said, their relationship was very stress free and sweet. I loved seeing them admit their feelings and get jealous at times.
Overall, this was a wonderful addition to this series. I love how unique this post-apocalyptic world is and the characters that inhabit it.
