Rojan Ja'Dar is a rogue, a pirate that buys and sells cargo for a living. He is his own man, skirting the edge of the law and answering to no one. Arriving on a particular planet, he goes to drop off cargo and discovers a human pet being sold at an auction house. Intrigued, Rojan breaks all his rules and buys the human as his pet. It isn't until after he purchases the human that Rojan discovers he just bought his mate.
Claiming Tyion is not as easy as buying him. Not understanding the danger he is in, Tyion fights his situation as a highly prized and sought after pet in Rojan's world. Rojan has to convince Tyion that being his mate is not as bad as being a pet, even if they have to pretend to the rest of the world that Tyion is just a possession. That is hard to do when someone is after Tyion, someone not from Earth.
“Werewolves in space…” When I read this on the dedication page, I got excited and had high hopes for this novella. The story started off decent enough, but went downhill from there. A race of alien werewolves is a good idea – in theory.
While the author did a decent job of building the world, the characters Rojan and Tyion did not compliment each other and were inconsistent in their characterization. This, coupled with an underwhelming climax, and a sex scene that was too close to bestiality for my taste, made for a read that was boring at best.
