Forged Alliances is the first book in the Tribal Spirits series, and already I am sucked into this world - loving the characters and wanting to know more about..., well, pretty much everyone! In this book, we focus on Sierra and Dax. Sierra is the alpha of the Wolves of Red Rock, whereas Dax is the alpha of the Mountain Lions of Silver Springs. Or at least, half of the pack that have followed him think so. We find out that there were strange circumstances at play, which has led to Dax coming to Red Rock to seek an alliance with Sierra. What neither of them were expecting was a mating bond to kick into action, leaving them with the choice of what to do.
This is an action-packed, sarcasm-filled, story that ticked all my boxes. I loved the interaction between Sierra and Dax, especially when he goes around annoying everyone. Dax is honourable though, and Sierra knows this. The mating bond is simmering until their first kiss, and then they both freak out. BUT they still work together, knowing the pack's problems supersede their personal one. Love them. Moving on though, there are other characters that I need to know more about, lots more! And don't let's forget about those representatives from The Tribe. I want to know more about them, and what they're doing there too.
With laughter and tears, this book was just what I needed. It is witty, action-packed, and believable (as far as shifters go!). With no editing or grammatical errors that disrupted my reading flow, I have no hesitation in recommending this for all shifter fans. Loved it, and can't wait for the next one.
