Trusted Bond

Trusted Bond - Mary Calmes This one starts off with a bit of:


And some:


Which leads to a lot of:


Mary loses her shit in the middle and goes hardcore on Jin. I mean we have an absolutely cuckoo for cocoa puffs semel situation. Followed by a kind of unstable sheseran followed by a cuckoo for cocoa puffs semel-aten. The semel-aten wants himself a wosret, the cheeky bugger, and well Jin is rare so you know, gotta have some of that.

Not confusing at all right?

So!! I'm still not sure what's happening but I'm also still faking it and by doing so I'm kind of making it. The thing I'm finding most difficult is matching the names to the titles. Ivan for instance almost broke my brain. I sat staring off into space trying to match him up for far longer than I should have. I read Mary Calmes so I can switch off not so I have to sit and think. Ivan by the way was Domin's sylvan.

There are so many people to keep track of. So many. Let's have a little example shall we?

“You sent Yuri up the mountain to the hunting grounds with Ivan and some of the others; you sent me to Delphine, sent Markel to talk to Christophe with Peter, and Domin was gone, and Logan was gone, and Mikhail and Koren were at Simone’s mating ceremony…. Who exactly took care of you? Eva?”

I mean come on!!!

I can now translate this into tribe speak though.

“You sent the sheseru up the mountain to the hunting grounds with the (former) sylvan and some of the others; you sent me (beset) to Delphine, sent the (former) sheseru to talk to the semel with Peter, and the (former) semel/maahes was gone, and the semel-re was gone, and the sylvan and Koren were at the aset's mating ceremony…. Who exactly took care of you? Eva?”



That's all in my brain now. I forget where I put me keys and what I walked into a room for but that I remember. I judge myself really.

So it's complicated, but I'm okay with that. I'm looking at it as a challenge. There are plot holes. So many plot holes but I'm also okay with overlooking them cause it's Mary. Jin is Jory and Logan is Sam, what's not to love there? Lots and lots of growly alpha smexy time and they are all panthers, how wonderful. My biggest problem? The thing that makes me want to fuck the kindle against the wall? (Joking, I'd never, ever do that.)

The fact that these particular cats have fucking terrible hearing!! Being able to eavesdrop and sneak up on other shifters and have conversations under your breath in the presence of shifters?


I took a star off for that. We need to keep it realistic people!! I mean FFS!!!
