Magic Rises - Ilona Andrews

Ok, I skimmed a bit of this before I read it, had questions about what I just saw, and read a review or three. Then I actually read it.

 

I feel...impatient...with Kate. Ok, here you are on a mission, you become aware that your mate is up to something within a day of arrival. His behavior in public isn't matching his behavior in private, or what you know of him. And...you believe this horse shit? You're really that insecure? Come on girl; that delicate little flower that he's attending with such devotion wouldn't last 5 minutes in the Pack. Heck, Andrea would probably challenge her before the ship left the Black Sea. Use your head!!

 

I can't help but wonder if Christopher wasn't a shifter who was cured of something.
