All Robbie Fontaine ever wanted was a place to belong. After the death of his mother, he bounces around from pack to pack, forming temporary bonds to keep from turning feral. It’s enough—until he receives a summons from the wolf stronghold in Caswell, Maine.
Life as the trusted second to Michelle Hughes—the Alpha of all—and the cherished friend of a gentle old witch teaches Robbie what it means to be pack, to have a home.
But when a mission from Michelle sends Robbie into the field, he finds himself questioning where he belongs and everything he’s been told. Whispers of traitorous wolves and wild magic abound—but who are the traitors and who the betrayed?
More than anything, Robbie hungers for answers, because one of those alleged traitors is Kelly Bennett—the wolf who may be his mate.
The truth has a way of coming out. And when it does, everything will shatter.
Why did this book just break my heart into a million pieces?
I’ll admit the first few chapters of the book were a bit rough. Mostly because I had no idea what was going on. I had no way to reference when we were and so it took a bit for me to fully get into the story. But when I finally got the idea of what was going on? Wow, wow, wow.
“There was something… I don’t know. Endless. About you and me.”
How can I put into words how much I love Kelly and Robbie? Kelly has had my love and attention since the first book, I couldn’t wait to see this asexual werewolf’s story. And Robbie, well, I didn’t dislike him, but he wasn’t a favorite either. But oh how that changed in this book.
I can admit this book wasn’t as action packed as the previous two, especially at the end. But I can enjoy a character driven book so that was okay. I won’t say much about the plot because spoiler! But oh my god, the plot ripped my heart out and made me want to bawl. I need to see Robert Livingstone die a painful death.
I was a but worried about the fact that this book followed an established couple, but of course I shouldn’t have worried. The relationship between these characters is so complex and evolving, and you could feel the rawness and uncertainty that followed this couple. I am a tiny bit sad we didn’t get to see the beginning of their love story, but that passed pretty quickly.
“You filled a hole in me I didn’t even know was there. You make me complete. You make me happy. I see you, Robbie. I see you.”
Gahh, I love all of these characters. The Bennett pack is filled with such different types of people. But the love they hold for each other is so overwhelming. We see a lot of changes to the pack in this book, some former humans are now werewolves, some new couples, etc. But I quickly remember why I love this group so much, and Rico of course has a special place in my heart.
“We are literally the gayest pack that has ever existed,” Rico said to no one in particular. “I see no problem with this.”
And that ending! Carter’s story, and the conclusion, is next. I cannot wait!
