Zoe’s Gift is the fourth book in the Fallon’s Mates series and while they can all be read as stand alone books the reader will benefit from reading them in order.
The planet Belizair is home to the Amato and the Vesti races who don’t always get along and don’t share the same ideals. The Amato are freer sexually than their Vesti cousins. For the Vesti a relationship has always consisted of one male and one female the Amato however feel if it feels right it doesn’t matter whether it’s same sex or multiple partners. So when the planet is infected with a virus that basically erodes any chance of conceiving children unless in a triad consisting of one Vesti, one Amato and one human with Fallon DNA, the Vesti have to battle their possessive natures and learn to share.
In Zoe’s Gift we are introduced to Iden who is Amato and Miciah who is Vesti. Iden is openly bisexual whereas Miciah has been fighting his attraction to Iden for years as it’s against the Vesti code, these pair are the closest match to the human Zoe so they team up to go and claim their mate together both males have preconceived notions of how their relationship will work out once they claim Zoe as their mate.
Zoe has problems of her own she has the gift of empathy trouble is it seems to focus of feelings of extreme grief and depression as a result to save herself  from becoming bogged down by her gift she constantly moves around. She has dreamt about both Iden and Miciah for a week so when they arrive in her life she welcomes them both and accepts their offer to become their mate.
Once back on Belizair the men find that sometimes you have to bend a little for the good of your mates and hurt feelings have to be put aside, when Zoe confesses to breaking rules that could lead to her being banished the trio find themselves determined to break with tradition and sacrifice everything if need be to stay together.
I loved the plot, totally loved the characters, enjoyed the inner turmoil that Miciah, Iden and Zoe went through Ms Strong again wrote an awesome story that kept up the pace and interest so the reader was sucked in from page one. However as much as I loved all that I was sorely disappointed in a few areas as far as editing went. There is one scene quite early in the book that is just impossible and the fact that it is just one word that causes this makes me wonder if the editor got lazy and didn’t read it and Ms Strong thinks her Editor has powers outside of a normal human and catches every mistake. This error was glaring I could forgive the occasional missing word but this error is the reason that I can’t give this book 5 Lyres and a recommended read as I would have if this error hadn’t stopped me cold. I seriously hope someone does a quick proof read before taking the book to print.
