Young Adult, Paranormal, Romance

The power he needs to protect his friends and family is just outside of Alec Graves' reach. The dominant shape shifter pack in North America is circling like vultures and there are other, more savage opponents approaching in the distance. Given the danger he's in, Alec doesn't have time for a broken heart, but Adri's departure has left him barely able to function. The pressures inside his pack are building to lethal levels and for the first time in his life, he's not sure he can walk the path that honor demands of him. Walking out on Alec was the hardest thing Adri had ever done, but she didn't bargain for the long-term impacts that would be involved. She hasn't been able to get past her feelings for him yet and it's starting to impact nearly every aspect of her life. Even more concerning, she now knows what the darkness really hides. Dangers that she thought she'd left behind in Sanctuary are stalking her again, but this time Alec's pack isn't in a position to protect her.

5 out of 5 (exceptional)

By jove, he's only gone and done it. Dean Murray has managed to get me shouting out at the book... again! I was unable to put this down and actually had to go and see the synopsis for the review of the next book to ensure that Alec and Adri had some sort of future together. That's how worried he got me with the scenes with Tasha in them. So, backtracking then, this book is still following Alec and Adri as they try to comes to terms with the decisions and choices they have made. Alec's pack is still small and unhealthy but rapidly becoming more unhealthy due to some mysterious illness that is affecting both shapeshifter and human alike. Adri has moved to New York where her mum is making a name for herself which means that Adri is still pretty much left on her own. We meet new and old characters in this and learn that strength isn't always physical. What some might see as a weakness can actually be the greatest strength you can possess. It's not what it is, it's how you deal with it. This series continues to grip and deliver on the promise of a fantastic story. Once I start one of these books, I usually tend to stop eating, drinking and sleeping until I've finished it. I really can't recommend these books highly enough to every reader out there.

Dean Murray is a prolific author with more than 28 titles across multiple pen names and more than 470,000 copies of his work currently in circulation.

Dean started reading seriously in the second grade due to a competition and has spent most of the subsequent three decades lost in other people’s worlds.

Things worsened, or improved depending on your point of view, when he first started experimenting with writing while finishing up his accounting degree. These days Dean has a wonderful wife and two lovely daughters to keep him rather more grounded, but the idea of bringing others along with him as he meets interesting new people in universes nobody else has ever seen tends to drag him back to his computer on a fairly regular basis.
