5 Star IHIBRP Book Review: “The Lion and the Tiger: A Shiva XIV Story” by Lyra Shanti

A Timeless Galactic Romance!

“The Lion and the Tiger” is the story of Hynfir and Leif’s initial meeting and their subsequent relationship. What starts out as an informal discussion between two young men about the Great Adin and Unian philosophy sparks a budding relationship that will bind two souls together until the end of time.

Shanti is a focused writer and an expert in world building and character development—as is evidenced by her Shiva XIV space opera. Here, she fully explores the magnetic attraction and ensuing passion between two of her most enigmatic characters—General Hynfir and the love of his life, Leif. This tale unwinds in a way that satisfies our curiosity about the true nature of Leif and Hynfir’s bond while leaving us craving for so much more.

Shanti’s knack for bringing out the best in her characters and the human condition shines in “The Lion and the Tiger”. The dialogue and the terms of endearment can seem a bit awkward at times, but one must keep in mind that the author is writing about another world in a faraway galaxy where this manner of speech might be completely familiar and acceptable. All in all, this is an endearing tale which demonstrates that love has no bounds and is truly everlasting.
