Isabella is an excellent assessor, and she can put the right human in the right job without hesitation. When one of her little file manipulations gets the attention of the overseer, she is summoned to his offices and faces a harsh sentence.
Bound to the overseer by cuffs that keep her at his beck and call, Isabella gives him the details on human interaction while changing plans for her people with minuscule nudges.
Iktabi has been in charge of Imrahl since it became a viable outpost. Waiting for his own mate has been an exercise in patience. When Isabella ends up in his office, he knows his match when he sees it, but the paperwork is a nightmare.
The world building in this series continues to be good and expanding. The heroine’s intelligence is a real pleasure but we know very little about the hero.
I have been looking forward to the romance between these two but it ends up feeling a bit cold without the details of character that would make the love story really good.
I liked learning more about the world but needed more romance.
