Of all the books in the series, this is the hardest to review without giving away key information. Maddox manages to give us even more amazing, unique shifters and other characters in this installment of the adventures in Stallion Ridge. All of the favorites are here, of course, but the focus is Mack Kelly. Not only does Mack have to step up and act as sheriff after Cal is injured, but also he gets to face some pretty spectacular issues. The biggest of these is Tahl, god of stone. Their interactions include glowing horns, vibrating crystals, clever tails, and hot coffee. And holy hotness!
This story had the most emotional impact on me. There were great moments of watching Tahl navigate a different world, of Mack learning to have faith in himself, and of the two men being overcome by their own feelings. Even with the roller coaster of emotions, Maddox still manages to give us a HEA that is satisfying and leaves us wondering what can happen next. Every book seems to get better, so I can’t wait to see what happens.
