Usually a fan of this author, I was surprised when this particular story turned out to be so unsatisfying. The very story was promising but everything else just had clouds of question marks surrounding it.
The story starts with Hadryk coming home from the war as a pup host. Which basically means he's agreed to be impregnated to save his lover Vodwynn. The main conflict of the story is Vodwynn's reaction to the pregnancy.
I did like the idea behind this five minute read, about a man returning home pregnant with a child – pup in this case – who is meant for other parents and fearing the reaction of his lover. But this was another race in question, a whole new concept about females impregnating men and children called pups and none of it was explained. Not the war or the very secret Hadryk is protecting for his lover. Even the very conclusion of the story seemed weak and left me with more questions and none of the answers.
As I expected more from this, I can't say I'm happy with what I got. Hopefully the next one will be more to the standard I'm used to when it comes to this author.
