My usual shifter stories are about wolves so this was interesting. I really like how the bear characteristics were used in the story to explain Robert's reluctance to shift. Vy was a mess. Although he was the kuar I don't think he really understood how to lead until Robert came into his life. I'm surprised his dad didn't take him more under his wing and show him how to be a better leader. I love fated mates and because Robert didn't recognize his mate at first this made for a very interesting story. I really enjoyed it.
