Review: Mating Net
Susan Tam, The Road to Romance
Prince Devoron-Vitan is heading home to Tigron. His twin brother, Djohn-Kronos has wreaked havoc in his absence. Djohn-Kronos is planning to take Devoron-Vitan's fiancée, Helispeta for himself as he has already murdered their father and taken over the throne.
Mating Net is the sequel to Ms. Cherry's book, Forced Mate. It is only twenty-three pages long but she puts a lot into it. It is unusual to find such well-defined characters in a short story but Ms. Cherry is able to accomplish it. She is able to give this reader a definite feel of Helispeta as well as the twin brothers, Devoron-Vitan and Djohn-Kronos. Helispeta is truly a girl who is in a whirlwind of her own making. She is horrified when she realizes her mistake. We can't say much more about this as it would give away the entire storyline but this reader was affected by her situation and we applauded her at the end. Devoron-Vitan and Djohn-Kronos are the epitome of the good twin versus bad twin. You will definitely have an emotional reaction to both of them. This romantic triangle will have the reader rooting for a positive outcome which Ms. Cherry does come through with!
Mating Net is an action packed adventure that will take the reader into a new world. If you haven't read, Forced Mate, it will make you want to go buy it. If you have read it, it will give you a better understanding of the back-story.
