While defending one of his pack members, Terrence meets his mate.  However, when a misunderstanding occurs during the fight, the beautiful black lion runs off, leaving Terrence wondering if he will ever find his mate again.

Giving Perrin Life is the seventh story in the Kontra’s Menagerie series.  The story takes place right after the end of Spider Sense and tells the story of Terrence and Perrin.  From the start, the author has the men starting out with a small disadvantage.  While the men have met, Perrin has run off and Terrence is not able to search for him right away.  I really liked the fact, that, regardless of the mating bond, the men are not able to come together right away.  Perrin is an interesting character and the fact that he knows very little about the shifter world makes for an interesting twist.  There is an intense attraction between Terrence and Perrin, and as Terrence teaches Perrin about sex and mating, they really heat up the pages. 

There are many secondary characters, most of whom return from previous stories.  These characters help move the story along and aid the men while they try to maneuver the obstacles thrown in their path.

While I really liked the story, I felt a little let down at the same time.  For me, it seemed as if the story came to a sudden stop just as it was really getting started.  I would really like to see more of these two and hope the author has a follow up planned for the future.   Although it is not necessary to read this series in order, I would recommend that you at least read Spider Sense before reading Giving Perrin Life.
