I really enjoyed this story! Shea got on my nerves a bit with how much she cowed to her Mother, but I loved seeing her come into her own through Shep's guidance. I thought the cast of supporting characters were interesting, and I especially wanted to see Sassy get her own story! The one thing I hated about this was that while it was a complete story, it did not fill the whole book. The story itself was finished at 77% and the rest was filled with excerpts and reading orders for the author's other works. Definitely interested in reading more of the series!
