Aeson has often found himself drawn to the human world, and even to the BDSM clubs that are there. The oracles predict that Aeson's mate will be a human, and that she will be in danger if he doesn't get to her soon then she would die, the only clue he is given is the word 'Sparrow'. For her whole life Shelby has been a little bit different, seeing visions of things to come. Now, with a bird shifter around, things are about to step up a notch...

The world of the bird shifters deepens! I feel like each installment in King of Prey adds more to that universe and more to the culture that is created. I liked the way that Master of the Hunt brought the future of the 'half breed' shifters into clearer focus through Shelby and her brother. It also illustrated how the prejudices of  the times have changed.

The chemistry between Shelby and Aeson was definitely there, and despite the fact that Shelby was actually a virgin I didn't actually find it annoying in the slightest. I'm not really sure why, probably because she wasn't the kind of woman to make a massive deal about it. The first time also seemed more real than other books make it.

I also loved the fact that there was a catch up on some of the other characters, including three very adorable four year old triplets. They made me go 'awww' just reading about them! The stories in this series are clearly tied together but each have their own story.

I enjoyed the romance, and the suspense elements in Master of the Hunt, I look forward to more in the series.
