Nicky Charles started the "Law of Lycan" Series with the book - The Mating( Book#1). Bonded , though was written after book#1 , is set in a time line before that of Mating. Hence this is called book#0.5.
I always like to read of societies that describe non-human creatures and their ways. I am glad I got to read this series in the correct order, 'cause this is probably lot better than book#1.
The book describes the set up of packs , the rules , the members and their stature in each pack ,the tensions hovering over the werewolf community and the regulating bodies.
I really like the roles of both enforcers and DC ( Disaster control) and once you read about them , you know they are going to be always on opposite ways of getting things done. That makes an interesting love plot between Reno and Brandi , but also it gets a little irritating at times.
Still , the story has a good pace , a lot of good action scenes and the character development is good. The book is all about two strong personalities coming to term with their own inhibitions and how every one working for good is neither always right , nor always wrong.
The sex is a bit too much for my taste and the editing could have gotten rid of some more details , per me.
Overall a good fast read.
