Honored Vow by Mary Calmes had me crying by chapter 1.

Where did I get this book? I got this book as an ARC free from NetGalley

Honored Vow (Change of Heart, #3)Title: Honored Vow
Author:  Mary Calmes
Publisher: Dreamspinner Press
Release Date: 21 Nov 2011

This is the summary off the back of the book.
Jin Rayne is still growing into his frightening new powers as a nekhene cat and his place as reah of Logan Church’s tribe when he learns that a sepat, an honor challenge, has been called. Logan, who has never wanted to do anything but lead his small-town tribe, must travel around the world to Mongolia and fight to become the most powerful leader in the werepanther world.

Logan won’t be the only one making the journey. As his mate, Jin must fight with him to honor his commitment to Logan, his culture, and his tribe. But the trial is long, involving a prolonged separation between the two men, and Logan’s humanity is at stake. In order to make it through the nightmarish sepat, Jin and Logan must accept their fates, trust each other, and honour the vows between them no matter the cost.

This is what I think of the book.
I was a little disappointed in this instalment, it just didn't live up to the bar that chapter 1 set.
I was crying heartbroken tears at the start of chapter 2 and was expecting the book to really put me through the wringer but it just never happened. The emotional intensity just plateaued. Don't get me wrong this is an emotional roller-coaster and a really good finish to this part of the tale, I am hoping that there will be more, but it just didn't get deliver.

I liked the twist and I didn't see it coming but looking back it was very subtly set up and does leave the door open to take the series in that direction. I really would like to hear more about Jin and his tribe as I like that Jin learn a lot about himself in these books they really are a voyage of Jin discovery.
