The Homecoming by Tammy Tate is a great opening for the Bayou Shifters series, a perfect blend of sci-fi and fantasy and a book for readers who are into unusual characters. Sydney, a rare breed, a half-human and half-wolf, has been having unusual dreams for the past six months, and those dreams have been about Kyle, a shifter. After her first transformation into a wolf, her father sends her to live with the clan of her deceased mother in Bayou. To her great surprise, she learns that the man in her dreams is in Bayou, but the council has already chosen someone else for his wife. Can Sydney stand it? The reader is introduced to great drama as one woman fights for what she believes to be hers.
Tammy Tate has created lovable and memorable characters in this gripping story. Readers will love to watch Sydney as she steels her will and makes the decision to go after the man who has walked into her dreams. Things become complicated when Kyle's twin brother pairs up with her. The plot is well-crafted to keep the reader hooked throughout the story and it is interesting to see how Tammy Tate builds up the conflict. The action is intense and the reader is eager to discover the outcome of the conflict. Readers who love prose that is tight and that features powerful and vivid descriptions will enjoy The Homecoming. It is evident that the author has a singular gift for plot and characterization, and writing about werewolves and shifters without clichés is something praiseworthy; she has succeeded in accomplishing it.
