Hearten is book two in the Bayou Bear Chronicles by Lila Felix. While it is a continuation of the main plot line from Burden, this book revolves around the blossoming relationship of Martha and Rev, black bear shifters from the governing black bear clan.
Echo and Hawke, from Burden, become supporting characters as staunchly independent Martha and Rev come to terms with the perceived conflict between their ingrained lifestyles and newly formed mating. While they struggle with themselves and their growing attraction for the other they must help their pack repel a growing threat from the grizzlies.
Lila continues to grow as a YA paranormal writer in this book. Her characters fill out and the story continues to engage the reader. The relationship and dialog feels more natural and sincere. Engraven is the third and final book in the series and wraps up the clan struggles while following the lives of two other bear shifters.
