Publisher's Summary

Everet has found his perfect place in the nest. As a raven, he's ideally suited to his new role in the nest's security flock. Some of the jobs it entails have been far more enjoyable than others, but when he's called to retrieve a magpie who's got himself into trouble in a local human club, it becomes a truly life changing experience.

Magpie shifters have always been looked down on by other avians. Just as attracted to shiny things in their human bodies as they are in their avian forms, everyone knows they'll do anything for money - and they're not above stealing what they can't get by more honest means.

Kane knows what being a magpie means, and he's got the bruises to show for it. When Everet rescues him from his latest scrape, Kane knows better than to believe the raven will actually take an interest in him and his welfare, but it's just possible that Everet is different to any other man Kane has ever met.

Please Note: This book is best heard in order as part of the Avian Shifters series. The previous stories are Duck! and Celebrate.

Avian redemption

I did not like Kane at first I thought he was a waste of time. I kept listening and as the story progresses i began to realize that he acted that way because of how he was brought up. I liked him better towards the end. Well written book.

Great addition to the Avian Shifters series!

3.5 Stars. I enjoyed both reading and listening to this story. I have to say that I truly disliked the magpie MC, Kane in the beginning. I hung in there with the story because it was obvious that his redemption was the basis for the arc of the story. He begins as a beat up thief, whore, and addict. Everet, a crow shifter in charge of security, brings him into the Nest for discipline and volunteers to become responsible for him, to become his master. Kane is a complete brat, but slowly, Everet’s influence changes Kane despite everyone’s belief that magpies are thieving whores.

These was little of a D/s relationship here, just the outer shell of one-I had been hoping for more. Although I liked Duck! much better, I still found this enjoyable and got to see cameos of Ori and Reynard. It’s worth your time if you’ve enjoyed the previous Avian Shifters books.

Strong Emotions

This books has so many strong emotions. For much of the book I felt bad for Everett because it was clear how strongly he cared for Caine from the beginning. The growth in Caine is beautiful to see. It is also a reminder that how being with the right person can be powerful.

Deep and satisfying

Kim Dare write thoughtful complex stories that are so far beyond mere erotica. she is my favorite author of M/M romance.
Her understanding of the deeper aspects of Dominance and submission is stunningly deep and lovingly accurate.
I am quite smitten with her characters.

A bit bitter, a lot sweet, like a matcha latte

Generally I find depictions of chemical addiction in a romance story to be problematic, but this one was fine. The elements of fantasy present in th avian shifter premise allow for a believable recovery in this particular world. The characters were believable and acceptably flawed, though I might have wished for a longer treatment, like Axel's Pup, to feel true closure. The performance was excellent.

DNF

First time reading about these avian shifters, and the idea seemed fun and the synopsis seemed interesting. But, I just couldn't stand Kane. I understand this story is about his growth as a character, but I am just not enjoying his whining, bratty character at all up to chapter 6 of a 15 chapter book. I am sure he gets better, but I am not having fun. I don't like the voice being used for him either, it grates on me so I just have to quit.
