An ancient curse turned Darius into a
Raven Warrior, assigned to watch over special charges.
Darius spends his days in raven form, only allowed to take
human form during the cycle of the full moon.
A werewolf father and a human psychic
mother had given Alena the label of half-breed as a child by
the pack. After a severe beating by the pack leader and the
accidental death of her parents, Alena grows up among
Content with owning and operating a
restaurant, Alena is appalled when her cousin Jaime locates
her and begs her to return to the pack and help figure out
who is murdering their children. The death toll rises and a
Raven Warrior is called in to help uncover the killer.
Sparks fly between Darius and Alena even though they wish
the chemistry wasn’t there. The clock is ticking however,
and Alena may be the next target no matter what Darius does
to try and save her.
Fur and Feathers brings together two diverse
groups with a werewolf clan and the Raven Warriors in one
multi-character saga. The mystery and suspense is there but
too much description sadly bogs down the excitement. Also,
Darius is hard to love, his bitterness and attitude, while
perhaps appropriate to his original time period, grates
rather than endears readers. I wanted to like this unique
paranormal but I just couldn’t connect with this story, plus
the ending is clear out of left field.
