Review for Tears of Elios by Crista McHugh

Borrowed from a friend
Shape-shifters’ Rule #1: Don’t let the humans know you still exist.

Rule #2: If a human finds out about you, silence them.

Some rules were meant to be broken…

Ranealya ruthlessly plays by the rules and has outlived most of her race because of it. If she wants to survive, she’ll have to stick to them, especially with a genocidal tyrant hell-bent on destroying all the non-humans in the realm. But everything falls apart when a human saves her life.

Gregor knows he’s inviting trouble when he helps a wounded shape-shifter, but he can’t pass up the opportunity to study one before they become extinct. She disturbs the quiet order of his scholarly existence, vexes him in more ways than he can count, and encourages him to break enough of the kingdom’s laws so that not even being the king’s cousin will save his head. The problem is, he’s already lost his heart

Review:The first thing that came to mind upon finishing this book is " Holy Crap! Is that it?!" I did not want this book to end.
It was such a riveting read that I read it in a day, not to say the book is short, simply put it grabs you by the boot straps so to speak and hauls you into the story until you are helpless but to keep turning the page until you find out what happens.

It was the ending that completely threw me, while I applaud it, I still want to know what happened to a certain group. I am hoping that it will be explained in the next book.

I intend to buy the book and add it to my library so when I get the urge to read it again, as I know I will, it will readily be at my fingertips.
Each character has so much emotion and depth to it that you cannot help but sympathize with their problems.

Rating:5 stars!
