This is the second novella I’ve read in this series, and I really like the fact that both seem to stand alone very well, yet tie in to the larger series. Just as with the first one, Lily and Rune don’t make any appearances. It focuses on an entirely new couple, Kai and Nathan, who I understand will be featured in the fourth novel, Night Season. I’m already excited.
Kai is a telepath, but not one like any other she knows of. She can see thoughts and emotions as colors and shapes. And her gift is stronger than it’s ever been in a time where many fear, and even hate, those who are more than human. Kai is nursing a serious crush on her friend Nathan, who is a police detective and a being from another realm. She doesn’t know what he is, but she knows how much he means to her, and she doesn’t want to lose him.
I don’t want to spoil too many details, as the story is short. But I really enjoyed the tension between these two. Kai wants to much to go beyond friendship with Nathan, and it is so gratifying when we finally get in his head and realize it goes both ways. I liked the way his truths unfolded as he revealed them to Kai. And I am very curious to see where their story will go next.
The World of the Lupi novellas definitely have a more PNR vibe than the UF we get from the novels in the series. I wish a little more of the romance would bleed over, because I like it a lot.
