Ellery's Duty - Kim Dare I really wanted to like this because I loved Kefir in the first two books. But with almost every sentence, he is presented as an animal, and I had a very hard time picturing him as a man at all. Even the cover shows him acting like an animal. I just couldn't get the image of him acting like a "kitten" all of the time out of my head. It was extremely frustrating. He just didn't seem human to me.
