A Mother's Dilemma

This story is about a mother who has a baby that is a shifter. Being born a shifter immediately results in the child being confiscated by the king and drafted into his army as a virtual slave. Keeping her child who keeps changing into a bear cub at the most inopportune moments becomes increasingly impossible and the mother is left with difficult and complicated decisions.

The author really does a very nice job of portraying the whole dilemma with realistic, well rounded characters, a good use of English and a sense of empathy for her characters. The pacing of the story is good and never drags at any point.

Sound quality is clear and the narrator does an adequate job.

This is a stand alone work, although it does reference other books in the series. No prior knowledge of the series is required.

A prelude to the world of Raven Thrall

The most excellent book Raven Thrall small weakness is some of the beginnings. This short story brings the past into the present of Raven's Thrall and gives context to one of the very important co-protagonist of the story. At the same time, it gives texture and background so one understands the setting of the these stories world as a whole. As in Raven Thrall Lynn Norris' narration is outstanding and gives even more life to a very enjoyable listen.

Great little novella!

Full disclosure: I received a free review copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving a review.

An enjoyable prequel novella to the Ceo San universe. Gives us a little bit of insight into the world, and into the life of Rose.

I enjoyed the book and the narration, a little short to spend a credit on though.

Short but great novel

The book follows Rose as the main character who learns that shockingly she has a Ceo San for a baby, and her journey after. It was a very cute book short novel.

Good book, though i felt some points were left out. I was left wanting a lot more than what was put in it. I am hoping that there will be more in this part of the series to follow what happened with the baby growing up to where the novel ended. Maybe show how she learned to control herself etc.

Also you should check out Ravenfall, which is set in the same story timeline but Rose is quite elderly at the time.

Narrator did a great job bringing the novel to life. Giving each character a good voice.

I received a free review copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving am honest review.
