Wonderful escape from reality
I always look forward to a new Christine Feehan book. I find this author to be imaginative, adventurous, and all around entertaining. The "Wild Rain" had an interesting story line, something only Christine could pull off, and at the very least, light entertainment for an afternoon. Do not expect all things to make sense, and quite frankly that is what I love about her books. The book introduces a new species, explains their history, and shares details of their surrounds and culture. That is a challenging undertaking by any author, thusly my earlier comments on Christine being "adventurous". Often this undertaking will leave a "practical" reader disappointed, since of course, the book's theory is exactly not that "practical", but rather "fantasy".
All in all I found the book to be a wonderful escape from reality.
Feeham has reinvented herself!
This book was an exciting adventure to read! Feehan has completely seperated her writing style from any she has done before and succeeded in doing so! I recomend this book to anyone who enjoys reading books with a prenaturnal edge. I eagerly anticipate additions to the Leopard series. If you decide to read this book you'll also want to read her novella, The Awakening, in the anthology, Fantasy. That is where the Leopard series is born . I just can't express how great this book is. You will not regret picking it up. The story of Rachelle and Rio in the rain forest is enchanting. You will, no doubt, love it too!
Absolutely thrilling from beginning to end...
All right guys, here's my opinion for what it's worth. I too am an author. So I have an extremely hard time reading other people's work. Because I have the nasty little habit of wanting to edit, critique and rip everything to shreds. I'll say this, I hate, hate, hate head hopping. For anybody not in the know that's when an author jumps from one characters head to another, so much so at times, that you lose track of who's saying what and why.
All that said however, her story was engaging. The reincarnation bits she threw in there, were exceptional. Although I'm a bit upset that she didn't delve deeper into that theme of the story. How exciting the concept of reincarnation and so much potential to highlight their 'past' lives, why they knew each other and what made them instantly have that powerful connection.
In order to like this story you have to seriously suspend disbelief, you have to love paranormal's and the fact that in Christine's world people can shapeshift with ease into a leopard. That a woman is smart enough to elude a drug lord, of all people, for weeks in the wilds of Asia. That her brother, who's a shapeshifter, wasn't capable of taking a 'pety' human down, considering that when he finally does it seems almost too easy.
This was a light, easy page turner, holding you on the edge of your seat, making your blood boil with the hot, sexy sex scenes, (some of the best I've ever read) and the hero is simply to die for. Rio is of course, a wounded, hero. Totally Alpha Male who wants nothing to do with a woman, until he meets the reincarnated lover of his past lives. The woman he's destined to love and protect. The plot was easy flowing, but what drew me most to this story was the beauty of her words and the deep, wonderful relationship shared by the hero/heroine.
