Review for The Homecoming by Tammy Tate - 4 out of 5
SYNOPSIS - AMAZON LINK -
Sydney is half human, half wolf, and has fallen in love with Kyle, a full-fledged shifter who for the last six months has been appearing in her dreams.
The next full moon, Sydney makes her first shift from human to wolf. The transformation won’t be easy. Thanks to her human genes, it could leave her disfigured. Or, worse. Dead.
Edward knows he can't rush Sydney to the hospital if something goes terribly wrong, so he sends his only daughter to live with his late wife’s wolf clan deep in Louisiana’s alligator infested bayou. Despite holding Edward responsible for her sister’s death, Susan agrees to help.
Sydney learns Kyle is in Bayou Fontaine. But, for the sake of the pack, the council has already chosen Emily, as his mate. The relentless she-wolf will stop at nothing to claim what is rightfully hers and teams up with Kyle’s twin brother, Justin, who’s hell bent on revenge.
The clock is ticking...
MY REVIEW -
I liked that this felt different then other shifter books I've read, and I enjoyed all the characters, and the setting was interesting. The romance was adorable, and I loved that they dreamed about each other before meeting! I always love that type of thing. This book has a lot happening, there's a few times that some craziness happens, and I'm thinking oh ok that's the climax of this book, but nope, there's a few of those, so that added to the suspense of this story, which I found entertaining. Sydney has to leave her home to go live with an aunt she's never met because she needs to learn how to survive her first change as a werewolf. Her Aunt lives in a secluded compound full of other werewolves, and isn't exactly the nicest lady. When Sydney gets there, she meets Kyle, and these two have an instant connection, but some outside forces aren't too happy about them being together, so these two have quite a road ahead of them to be together. Sydney and Kyle are sweet and I loved their connection, and I loved that they continued to fight for each other even when things were looking really bleak. Love werewolves, love the Bayou, and loved how entertaining this book is; it kept me reading! The ending did feel a little rushed to me, so I would've liked to see that unfold more, but overall, this book was an enjoyable read!
