Anna Latham didn’t know how complicated life could be until she became a werewolf. And until she was mated to Charles Cornick, the son — and enforcer — of Bran, the leader of the North American werewolves, she didn’t know how dangerous it could be either...
Anna and Charles have just been enlisted to attend a summit to present Bran’s controversial proposition: that the wolves should finally reveal themselves to humans. But the most feared Alpha in Europe is dead set against the plan — and it seems like someone else might be too. When Anna is attacked by vampires using pack magic, the kind of power only werewolves should be able to draw on, Charles and Anna must combine their talents to hunt down whoever is behind it all — or risk losing everything...
It is funny how a series can sneak up on you and before you know it, you are completely wrapped up in it and in the lives and outcome of the characters.
I never thought this would be that series for me. I picked it up on a whim wanting something different, something fun, and something involving werewolves, something I really don't read all that often.
Before I knew it I was pretty hooked on the series. There was just something so alluring about Anna and Charles' relationship that I couldn't help myself. Not to mention the greatness that is Brigg's writing.
The worlds she creates are so tangible, so believable that you can't help but become immersed in them and so lost that you really don't want to find your way out again.
Anna and Charles have to be two of my most favorite wolves. I love seeing how far they have come since the prequel. How they are growing together and also individually.
Anna is getting stronger, not just as a wolf, but as a human. More confident. And her confidence is beautiful.
Charles too is growing and changing for the better as he is adapting to having Anna in his life and all that entails. I love that he has a past and one that isn't always pretty. I love that he is different from the others in almost every way imaginable.
Maybe I just really like this series.
Either way, this was a great addition to the series and I just loved it. Just the right amount of romance, action and mystery to keep me turning the pages and left wanting more.
