Earth is bleak and frozen for the most
part, most living underground to survive. Humans are now at
the bottom of the food chain with Lionsblood and other
groups in control these days.
A slave at one of the wretched human
farms, Talia does her best to help the younger children
survive with little food, freezing conditions and a brutal
Lionsblood leader Dykstra is looking
over the slaves to purchase a human male when a mouthy
female catches his notice. Dykstra is intrigued by Talia
but questions whether the frail woman can survive in the
caverns he and his people call home. Something in Talia
calls to him but can Talia be the lionsmate that Dykstra
thought he’d never find?
An original idea of mankind’s future
can be found in the exciting and romantic adventure
Lionsmate. This imagined world is well thought out
with a fascinating variety of characters. Lionsblood
Dykstra and the human Talia are both strong alpha’s with
very dominant personalities. Their constant mixed signals
frustrated me after awhile because there were so very many.
Loving, then resistant and so on for too long or too often
it seemed. I enjoyed the overall story, the characters and
the climatic ending is great but I wish they hadn’t fought
quite so often.
