Gregory is already having problems with the supernatural council, so when he is sent to Vegas to pick up a wayward shifter, he’s surprised to find out that the young cat is his mate.  Hayden has not shifted for some time and has lost some of his cat’s special qualities because of that. Unable to tell that Gregory is his mate, Hayden has trouble trusting the council’s enforcer, leaving both men open to trouble. 

Gregory’s Rebellion is the latest addition to the Shifters‘ Haven series.  This story wraps up the plotline concerning the supernatural council and left me wondering if this was the last book in the series.  I was glad to see, after a quick visit to the author’s website, that there is more to come.  This story also picks up shortly after the end of the last book and, while the stories can usually be read as stand-alones, you should at least read Nate’s Deputy before starting this one.   

Both main characters are well-written and it was easy to understand why Hayden refuses to shift.  I liked the way Gregory choses to step back, giving Hayden time to adjust to all the changes that have been thrown at him, even if it means not claiming his mate.  As fans have come to expect, once these two get together they really heat up the pages.  While the ‘bad guy’ is already known to the reader, the lengths that he goes to in order to reach his goals were surprising.  The story is filled with many returning characters that lend both Gregory and Hayden a hand and help move the story along. 

Gregory’s Rebellion is a great addition to the series, and I can’t wait to see what Ms. Lewis has planned for the rest of her Shifters‘ Haven series.
