Nestled in the woods of Western Massachusetts, Haven 4 runs semi-smoothly. Alysia tells herself that she has put her days as a mercenary for the brutal Bruja Guilds behind her. But it was small, and the showdown between Sarik and her father made up for that little problem.


Things get pretty complicated in this story, their are hidden relationships pioson all four characters, especially Afwater-rhodes, who is not exactly who she claims to be. Be the first to discover new talent! I found myself intrigued by the dual protagonists of Sarik and Alysia.

She is not without flaws, but she is mentally strong and definite My thoughts This book suffers from faux action girl syndrome, flat characters, lack of closure to character arcs and relationships, and plot twists that depend on atwatfr-rhodes spoiler [omitting important details from characters’ introspection, which felt like an authorial cheat hide spoiler ].

I still don’t know how she let Christian take her captive and return her, apparently by force, to her abusive father the King of the Tigers. How did he just turn into a witch during the two years Alysia was gone he was already one and that’s when he matured into his abilities? Amelia threw in a few twists, some of which I predicted, and some of which made me reread the previous page just to wrap my head around trse revealed information.


Atwater-rohdes also seems disturbingly okay atwater-hodes underage mercenaries I would have expected SingleEarth and Sarik to have some not-so-positive things to say on that, really.

Who are the romantic interest of the main characters? Aug 15, Shyla Colt rated it liked it. I just felt so disconnected throughout this story while I was reading.

The rest of the action takes place six years later. There is also the interesting political and personal aspect of the shapeshifting Tiger clans that became a focal point because of Sarik.

A bit slow to start because of the complexity of a bunch of new characters and backstories, but the world building in the Den of Shadows explodes in this book, and when combined with lots of classic Atwater-Rhodes violence, it makes for a fun read.
