Five years ago, twenty-three-year-old panther shifter Sera Czedar left her home and her newly mated groom in a humiliating position after a mating ceremony gone wrong. She built a new life for herself in Varselles, the City of Outcasts where shifters exiled from their clans in the Seven Kingdoms can go for sanctuary.
Five years ago, panther shifter Levian Grayson was abandoned on the bonding bed by his bride, Sera. After years of tracking her, he arrives in Varselles, intent on staking his claim on her once and for all, even if it means hauling her over his shoulder just to make sure that happens.
Sera has always known her homecoming would eventually catch up with her one day. The one thing she can’t bear to do is hurt Levian, which will happen as soon as he finds out the reason she left him. Is she ready to take that path? Most of all, will Levian still want her when the truth comes out?
About the Author
Cecilia Robert  writes YA, NA and Adult. My motto: Passion rules. I enjoy writing stories about people finding love in the most unexpected of places,and also about people finding their true purpose in life coupled with adventurous journeys, whether it's urban, fantasy, sci-fi, contemporary or paranormal romance. There's always a happy ever after, no matter how long it takes for the characters to get there. 

My Review of 
Homecoming is a prequel novella of sorts for the soon to be release Cloaked Devices series Cecilia Robert. After a plague wiped out most of the human population, the shifters combined their blood with the remaining humans to save them, and moved them to their home since Earth became uninhabitable. This novella story centers around Levian and Sera love story and history. Levian has been searching for Sera since she disappeared the night of their mating ceremony. Now five years later, Levian finds out where she has hidden herself away and is intent on bring her back home to be with him. 

Sera after being on her own in a dangerous outcast city for five years has not only learn to protect herself, she has also become on the premiere fighters in the The Rings. Levian does not find the same meek girl who he married, but a beautiful woman who does not take crap from anyone. Sera hides a secret, the entire reason she left everyone she cares about behind and dashed off into the night. 

While this story just gives a glimpse into this world, and the characters I really enjoyed it. I like the amount of backstory and character development that takes place in this short novella, without feeling like information overload. I know that I will be picking up Rise the first book in the Cloaked Devices series when it released later this year. I am looking forward to more of Sera and Levian story, and it sounds like the stakes are much higher in Rise.
