He was once a king, turned into a bear as punishment for his cruel and selfish deeds.

She was a once a princess, now living in the form of a hound.

Wary companions, they are sent—in human form—back to a time when magic went terribly astray. Together they must right the wrongs caused by this devastating power—if only they can find a way to trust each other.

But even as each becomes aware of an ever-growing attraction, the stakes are rising and they must find a way to eliminate this evil force—or risk losing each other forever.

Meh…  It wasn’t great, it wasn’t bad.  It was just meh.  I think I might have liked this book more if I read it back in middle school.  I wasn’t a big fan of either main character.  I didn’t necessarily like the back-and-forth points of view.  I wasn’t that emotionally invested with anyone.  I just didn’t love the book.  I think I will be stopping with the series now.  On to better reads…
