The Book ✯✯✯✯
Forgive me, but I need to fangirl it out.
This was a brilliantly done paranormal thriller with just as much romance to boot. It contains only werewolf legend. No vampires or ghosts or other mystical beings and it was done with sex appeal, danger, protective instincts, and a massive dose of what can pass as reality.
Daniel, our megahot Alpha is a dashing gentleman. He is intelligent and caring and he uses both of these traits to keep the greater American packs as safe as possible while they fight the Hitler of werewolves in wanting to take out any half-human wolves. He's a bit of a possessive lover, and entirely too bossy. But somehow you still love him to pieces.
Parker is feisty, strong, resilient, and is in no way submissive. The perfect match for Daniel. And also his greatest challenge. But the chemistry here is strong, and I appreciated that Parker, though she ended up and needed rescuing because she's only human, was still able to hold her own and brought the tech intelligence to the group to take down the evil that designed the pestilence for the normally immortal werewolves.
This had the perfect balance of fast pace, believable romance, and a greater plot driver than just the two romantic leads. I am thoroughly looking forward to the next book in the series and have accepted the release date will be eagerly awaited with barely-contained impatience.
Thank you to NetGalley, M Greenhill, and 2 Little Monkeys for this free ARC in exchange for an honest review.
