    Leopard s Heart is a fast paced fantasy adventure with a strong romance at its center In a world of Elves and Humans, Therians animal shapeshifters struggle to live among the Humans without being detected Raina a flamboyant and daring leopard daughter of an Elf and Therian couple and Baran a rule abiding uptight tiger have been joined in a peace marriage an arranged political marriage Their personalities alone make the relationship fascinating to watch They hold my interest as much as the intensely suspenseful plotline made up of mysteries and political social tensions The main couple s relationship and the plot are believable and interesting Their marriage and the continued world building are a nice fulfillment of promise of the prequel Raina and Baran s explosive relationship and the deepening mystery of the Fringe offer plenty of promise for the series to come I am eager to read the next installment of the Therian Way.

    I have liked almost all of the other stories that I ve read by Kimberly Rogers a couple had cuss words in them and I couldn t finish them , and this one is another one that I really enjoyed.In our contemporary world there are paranormal creatures, shape shifters, that the humans know nothing about Some of these shape shifters are a blend of elf and therian, half bloods they are called by the therians of the Fringe, a group that wants to rid the therians of the half bloods keeping their race pure Raina is a half blood and a tracker Baran is a pure blood and a general in the Therian military They have a Peace Marriage, a marriage where a elf and a therian marry to keep the peace between the two races She is a leopard, he is a tiger Their marriage isn t one of affection, but a partnership where they work together to bring down the fringe As the story moves along they find that they care for each other than they thought they would There s quite a bit of fighting and some gore in this story during the battles between species There isn t any bad language though and innocent kisses when there are any.

    In this Earth based present day urban fantasy, three species co exist Humans, Elves, and Therians There are also assorted nasties held back by a mysterious barrier.Humans know about the Elves, but they don t know about the Therians, who work incognito for their protection Therians are shape shifters with three forms humanoid, animal, and half beast Each Therian is born into one beast family and has only one beast form.If this intrigues you and you haven t read the prequel, Tiger s Paw, don t read any farther because there s a spoiler to the prequel below I highly recommend reading the prequel so you ll be oriented in this complex world before starting book one, Leopard s Heart.I found Tiger s Paw a bit of a hard read, partially because it s from the point of view of General Baran the tiger and he s, as the impudent leopard he s assigned to work with says, Tall, Dark, and oh so Serious The major difficulty in reading was simply absorbing the way the story world works the hierarchies and relationships among the different species of beasts, and how they work unseen among the humans.Now, if you re still here, prepare to learn something about how Tiger s Paw ends.Raina the leopard on the cover of Leopard s Heart is in an arranged marriage to Baran Raina s also half Elven, exposing her to prejudice and attacks from those who want to keep the Therian race pure.The novel is about the two of them working together to thwart a plot to expose the Therian race to the Humans A subversive element among the Therians, the Fringe, is behind this and is also stirring up hate crimes against half Elven Therians.Among the unfamiliar circumstances, though, we find two strong and likeable characters in an arranged marriage a classic romance situation that we re comfortable with We may not be able to relate to shape shifters, but we can relate to hearts And to danger and the need to stop the villains.The story is mostly told in the first person, from either Raina s or Baran s point of view I wish the chapters opened with the narrating character s name, for easier reading, but it only took a few paragraphs to find out each time.Leopard s Heart is a compelling read, clean fiction with a Christian theme the Therian Way is a code of honour based on faith in Yeshua It s violent in places, with fighting and blood than I m used to, but nothing is gratuitous Still, by the end I was a little battle weary.I won a copy of Leopard s Heart in a giveaway, and bought Tiger s Paw so I could start at the beginning I like Raina and Baran, and I m glad to have come this far with them in the series.Kimberley A Rogers is a fantasy author and Masters in Religious Education student For about the author and her books, visit her website, So You Want to Write Christian Fantasy

    Leopard s Heart is Book One in The Therian Way series, but there is a novella prequel Tiger s Paw , and I would recommend people read that first I didn t, and found the first half of Leopard s Heart a real struggle to read While there was a lot of back story in the first half, I found it confusing as I didn t see how it related to the central assassination plot, and it slowed the story down A lot The first half could have benefited from some cutting, to bring the plot to the forefront, rather than allowing the central plot to be hidden behind the endless interior monologue and world building My confusion over the plot wasn t helped by the writing The novel is written in first person from the point of view of several characters Most chapters were from the viewpoint of either Raina the part Elf leopard heroine or Baran the pureblood Therian tiger hero , but some chapters were from the viewpoint of minor characters My problem with this was there were several chapters where I didn t immediately know who the viewpoint character was, if it was Raina or Baran or someone else I don t like having to flick back to the start of a chapter to work out whose story I m reading It should be obvious I also thought there was too many characters mostly related to the problem of toomuch back story , to the point where it distracted from the central plot and the character development Also, some of the writing seemed to have errors, in that I couldn t immediately discern what it was trying to say For example, this sentence appears to either have some extra words, or some missing words I m the only one in the neighbourhood who has a threatened last week for peace marriage Was that meant to have been who has been threatened Or something else I persevered despite my frustration, and the second half of the novel was much better than the first fewer characters, focus on plot, faster pace, enjoyable, and an emotionally satisfying ending But I don t think the ending was satisfying enough or the characters interesting enough to motivate me to read further novels in the series Thanks to Jansina at Rivershore Books for providing a free ebook for review.

    Okay, confession I actually read an advance copy of this book before release, and I am only JUST NOW getting around to reviewing it But without further ado Yes Yes to everything I got to read the prequel novel over the summer, and I was both fascinated with the idea for her world, and enad by the characters.In Rodgers world there are three races humans, Elves, and Therianthropes Basically a person who can shapeshifter into a specific animal The principal character is Baran, a commander in the Therian army and a Tiger and Raina, a Tracker and a Leopard Hence the title that s her on the cover, by the way In the prequel Tiger s Paw, Baran and Raina are assigned to work together to find out who is trying to overthrow the tenuous peace between the three races, and though they don t like each other much, they agree to a peace marriage, because it turns out that Raina is half Elven I would strongly recommend reading Tiger s Paw first, because Leopard s Heart felt like a continuation of that Anyway, so now we come to Leopard s Heart In a rather short time, I became COMPLETELY OBSESSED with Baran and Raina The distinct personalities and endearing faults and flaws of both characters comes through strongly, and I just wanted to keep on reading about them Rodgers is MASTERFUL at crafting characters that leap off the page The mystery part was good too lots of thrills and intrigue And it s not over yet This was a FANTASTIC book and I HEARTILY recommend it

    This book is the first novel following the novella prequel, Tiger s Paw in the Therian Way series, and it s a great foundation for what is to come The main characters, Raina and Baran, are well written, very human if you can say that about beings that can turn into wild animals , and the dynamic between them is electric He is dour and very by the book She is relaxed about rules and enjoys annoying him They are the proverbial immovable object and irresistible force Their relationship is far from settled as they go about protecting unwitting humans from sinister forces that would upset the fragile peace, but they still have their romantic moments along with their humorous ones.Rogers gives the reader smoothly written prose, engaging characters, many unusual creatures and situations and very effective world building But that world is very relatable, and her characters are complex and engaging I particularly enjoy the way the shape shifters think like actual animals smelling emotions and so on and not like humans who happen to be able to look like animals from time to time.All in all, Leopard s Heart is a strong beginning to the Therian Way series I m eager to read .

    I love christian romances and fantasy I read a lot of books of the genre but I ve never read anything like this one It is unique Shape shifters to tigers, lions, leopards, bears I choose this book to read because the main characters are shape shifters a tiger and a leopard and I love cats It piqued my interest and I am very happy that I read this book It is very refreshing and interesting The world that Kimberly A Rogers created is fantastic very rich with elves, therians they are shape shifters and humans There is God in the book Creator and Yeshua but there is no preaching I like preaching The main characters are great, they are in an arranged marriage, the romance is developing at very slow pace Maybe next books in the series will have romance scenes with sweet kisses please, Kimberly
