Arcane Hearts, Hearts of Avalar #4 by Faedra Rose

"Faedra Rose is a new-to-me author, and now I'm interested in reading more from them." Angel read Arcane Hearts.

From the blurb:

Jareth Grimclaw sets out on a quest: to end the blight of The Dread Barrens spilling into his territory, The Green Sea—a beautiful lush jungle region. As the Alpha of his panther shifter pride, the task falls to him to do something before it’s too late, and the damage is irreversible.

Venturing into The Dread Barrens, Jareth has no choice but to confront the warlock, Bane Umbra. When Bane speaks to Jareth using mindspeech, Jareth feels the immediate spark of the sacred Fated mate bond. He can’t believe it—he’s Fated to the enemy!

Angel's Review:

This book may be on the shorter side but Faedra packed a lot into these chapters. I enjoyed the different point of views, and the detail that was in this story. 

I liked the fated mate aspect of them sealing a bond by kissing? That's new and I haven't read something with that quirk before. I also thought the part where Jareth gave Bane a week to decide if Jareth would be returning as a mate... Or as an enemy. And while I know this is a shorter book, in that regard it felt a bit rushed. But overall it was a really good read, and I'm happy I was able to read it. 

The only reason I didn't give this a five star is because I feel like both of these characters using the others full names almost every time they talked got a bit redundant. Overall though a good book!

Short, sweet, and to the point.
