When his parents fears land him in a ‘treatment’ center Lindsay’s life becomes a living hell. Finally seeing a chance to escape, the young mage takes it, later to end up in the arms of his mate.

Dane is living under a curse and wants as little to do with others as possible. Forced into the position of babysitter, Dane wants nothing more than to walk away. Fortunately for both men, Dane does not get what he wants.

Tatterdemalion is the newest story by authors Anah Crow and Dianne Fox and those who love shifter stories are sure to love this one. I am not going to tell you what type of shifter Dane is, as it would ruin the surprise. While there are many hints throughout the story, it is not until the last part of the book that the authors tell us what he is. When the truth comes out, it will be one of those OMG moments that will leave you saying “of course, the clues were there all the time”. Lindsay is a mage who, at the tender age of 19, has gone through more hell then some men twice his age. Both men are broken and chances of any kind of relationship working between them would be slim, yet, these men need each other and the authors do a wonderful job bringing all their emotions, turmoil and passion across for the reader.

The quest these two are on will also hold the reader’s attention till the end. The many secondary characters and twists to the plot will leave you wondering who really is a good guy and who isn’t. While there is nothing mentioned on the publishers site about this being a series, Tatterdemalion would make a wonderful introduction to an interesting world that I am sure many readers would like to visit again.
