This book was such a change from most of the shifter books that I have read, thanks for that. I really enjoyed the way the Simon and Paul got together, it wasn't instant and they started more as friends, getting to know each other, at least from Pauls POV, even though Simon was pushing for more. The whole plot, including the hierarchy was interesting and kept the book moving along. There was a more realistic (if that is possible in a shifter book) tone that most books don't have. I thoroughly enjoyed this and really look forward to the next book to find out more.
