Keanae has been living in the human world for years, ashamed of his scars and not wanting the reminder that his identical triplet brothers give him of his disfigurement. He never even settled in one place until now; until Lark. Lark has been on the run from the bird men for years, and she knows that it is probably time to move on, except that she can't bare the idea of leaving Kean behind, especially when he finally starts acting like he's interested in her...
First thing that I really liked about this was that the characters had known each other for a while. Though the events in the book took place in a short space of time, Lark and Kean had known each other for over a month before hand, and had got to know each other by having breakfast together on multiple occasions. I think that it gave meat to their relationship.
It took Kean a while to become possessive in more than thoughts with Lark, but as soon as he did the chemistry and connection between them was strong, and it felt as if they were already more established as a couple. Of course the other characters surrounding them (mostly from the previous books) had already noticed and these two were a little slow on the upkeep.
I still find the concept of bird shifters intriguing and I think that Roth does it well, not only in how the shifting works but also in how the different races of bird interact. It creates a truly three dimensional world that is completely different to anything I've read before.
I like this series, they provide short and exciting reads full of originality and chemistry.
