Publication Date: October 24, 2016
Genres: Adult, Entangled: Select Otherworld, Paranormal Romance


Prince Kael has just lost his father to an assassin, and he’s the next target. A murderer is on the loose, the kingdom is in disarray, and Kael is determined to make the person responsible for killing his father pay. But falling for the beautiful Cara, panther-shifter and main suspect in his father’s murder, wasn’t part of the plan. He’s not at all sure she did it, and he finds himself going against everything he’s ever known just to claim her.The ceremonial Hunt is approaching, and mates must be chosen to run together. The hatred between the tiger and panther species is all they know. If Kael and Cara follow their hearts, it could mean treason and death.





An interesting start to a new fantasy series.I really loved the world building and the completely original setting the author has created.The story about the origin of the shifters is really fascinating.
In the world of Sajra, different kinds of shifters exist.After the lion shifters died out, the tiger shifters became the ruling monarchy.Panthers occupy the lowest rung in the shifter society, due to a mistake made by one of their ancestors.They are shunned,pushed out of the city and forced to live on the outskirts by the river.

Cara is one such panther shifter, who is trying to get some food for her family when she witnesses the assassination of the Rei(King) of Sajra, and becomes the prime suspect.Prince Kael's father has just been killed and he is the next target.He is determined to resolve the issue before he becomes the Rei.With the Ceremonial Hunt approaching,he must choose a mate before he ascends the throne.In the Ceremonial Hunt, shifters run together with their chosen mate-the one with whom they would spend the rest of their lives.He is fascinated by Cara and he begins to learn that many things he believed to be true might be lies.

Cara has already been let down once and experienced major loss due to the royal family.She wants nothing to do with the Prince who suspects her and protects her at the same time.But she can't help the attraction she feels for him.With conspiracies,death threats and secrets abound,will they be able to make it together?

Both Cara and Kael were great main characters.But I believe they could have been fleshed out more.The plot and storyline was pretty good, though predictable at some parts.My favorite part was the background,history of shifters and the world that the author has created.Though I didn't find any faults with the book, it didn't really keep me hooked all the time and wasn't unputdownable for me personally.

So guys, if you're looking a new,completely original paranormal romance with a good plot to go along with the romance, then give this on a chance! :)
