Brody is running away from home.  While doing his pack’s books, Brody comes across information that could destroy them.  Not sure what to do, he heads to his cousin, hoping the feline coalition will give him sanctuary.  He’s surprised when he meets Kiplin and feels such a strong connection to the other man.

Kiplin’s Coming Out is the latest book in The Lost Shifters series.  This story brings two young men, both relatives of previous characters, together.  Brody is North’s cousin.  He has information his pack would kill for and hopes his cousin will help.  Kiplin is a “lost shifter”.  His only experience with family has been negative, so when he finds out he has a brother, he does not know how to act.  Both men have a lot on their plates so aren’t looking for a relationship.  Yet the chemistry between them can’t be ignored and soon the two are spending a lot of time together. 

While the chemistry between the men is intense, I found the relationship between them to be a little lacking.  I am used to the author showing the progression of the main characters’ relationship, yet in this book it seems as if we only get a few highlights, so I felt as if I did not really get the chance to know them.  

Then there is the matter concerning Brody’s family.  What Brody finds out is important to the coalition, as well as the shifter’s relationship with humans yet, it seemed as if it was a second thought in the book and only touched on a time or two.  I hope Kiplin’s Coming Out was just used as an introduction and more of this will come out in future stories.
