We all have tragic backstories in today’s world.
I wake up chained to the wall of a dark cell aware of two things: I failed my sister, and I smell my enemy.
When I’m taken to meet Dare, the alpha of the Silver Tip pack, I’m sure I’m about to lose my throat. The last thing I expect is for the Alpha to recognize me as his fated mate. No way is he going to let me go now, and I still have to find a way to rescue my sister.
As I plot my escape to save her, I find that if I leave, Dare could be killed by power-hungry members of his pack. And now he’s more to me than my fated mate—my heart is involved. With time ticking by on my sister’s life, I have to make a choice I never thought I’d face—my sister’s life or my mate’s? That’s if I can survive the undead shifters intent on killing me first…
Megan Erickson has written my favorite shifter story to date. I love Paranormal Shifter Romance but more often than not I DNF the samples. Usually, I end up finding them cheesy. Well, there’s nothing cheesy here, my friends. What we have here is an intense, gritty romance.
What I loved:
-The plot. The author created a post-apocalyptic world in which humans no longer exist. There are three species left: weres, werewolves, and noweres (which are pretty much zombie wolves). Reese is a young wolf determined to save who is left of his family and take them back to his homeland. Except he gets caught, beaten, and left for dead. It’s after that he meets his mate, Dare. Dare is the alpha of his pack, and despite coming across as hard, he has his pack’s best interest at heart.
-Reese. He’s young, but he is smart and full of heart. He’ll do whatever he needs to do to protect those he loves even at his expense.
-Dare. What was there not to love about this powerful were? Book Boyfriend Alert!
-The supporting characters. Jude, G, Bay, Mav, Cati. These characters were well developed and were an integral part of the story. I’m hoping we’ll be getting some books in the future for them…. 😀
-The chemistry between Reese and Dare was equal parts romantic and scorching hot. I swear I could feel my iPad getting hot. LOL
-The pace. It was smooth and fast paced. I had to force myself to slow down because I didn’t want the book to end. It was unputdownable.
-Narration. Dual POV<<—my favorite!
-And the end left me emotionally happy and excited for the stories to come.
Negative wise there’s nothing to report. I loved everything about this story of family, devotion, selflessness, trust, and love. 5+ Gimme-Gimme-More-Megan-Erickson-Shifters Stars! HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
