Product Description: Long ago, shape-shifters reigned as gods. But even gods have laws that they break at their own peril....
Each member of Dirk & Steele has a unique ability. Soria's is the gift of communication--which is why she's been chosen to learn the language of a tormented warrior resurrected after thousands of years of icy sleep.
He is Karr, and once he was a king. Strong as a lion, quick and deadly as a serpent, he saw everything he loved consumed in flames. Death was to be his salvation, but thousands of years later he has been awakened against his will. Now a breathtaking human moves him in ways he neither understands nor desires. But Soria can see beyond his rage...and only she can speak the words that will cool the destructive fury in his soul--words of love.
