Sarah, Dmitry and Dastan end up in Montana ranching.  After arriving, women start being killed by a rogue shifter.  Sarah ends up facing a life-changing revelation and life-mated to Dmitry and Dastan.

The fifth book in the Spark of Magic series, Nature of the Beasts, brings Dmitry, Dastan and Sarah to the mortal world.  This also brings changes to some relationships forged in previous books among the humans and shifters.

There is a lot of emotional tension between Sarah, Dmitry and Dastan, due to feelings and the very strong chemistry between the three.  Because of Sarah’s background, a very surprising revelation causes upheaval in her life.  It also brings a lot questions as well, though the author did a good job of resolving those toward the end.

The author introduces a couple of interesting characters, one that causes a lot of havoc throughout the book, and one that may be in one of the future stories, at least I hope so.  I did have to laugh at some of the conversations that happened, especially in the salon, then later with some of the main secondary characters.

Part of the storyline could lead to an interesting story in the future. Though most can be read as stand-alone books, I recommend reading the series in order because of the rich interaction between the both the protected world and ours.
