Tamed by Rebecca Zanetti
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Wow, I can’t believe that this story hasn’t been told in the background of the other books. I guess when you’re immortal, you can kind of take your time with your relationships? Either way, this story finally gets to the Caleb/Lily love story.
We know that Caleb and Lily have a past, where she chose duty over love, leaving him alone for quite a bit of time. Since the big showdown that made Caleb a prophet (much to his dismay and denial), they have been avoiding one another. Sure, she’s mated (even though her mate is dead), but the mating mark has been suffering the same fate as Cara’s, and now she’s finally ready to get back out there. Re-enter Caleb! These two are obviously destined to be together, so the rest is just icing on the cake.
The larger story revolves around the peace talks that everyone assumes is a trap. There’s a lot of buildup to this meeting, which ends in kidnapping and lots of action. Don’t worry, though, because we get a nice pivot into the upcoming Janie story (which I might re-read, just so I get the full impact). This short story is required reading if you’re looking for a complete picture of this series.
