Blurb: Stepping out of the closet as a gay man may be a walk in the park, compared to coming out as a werewolf.
From the moment artist Dylan Shore arrives in Chicago, his life gets twisted like a kaleidoscope. Why does a street gang he’s never met before want him dead? Why is a hot but odd mathematician stalking him? And how can half the things Alex Corwin says possibly be true, no matter how honest he seems?
Alex has a frightening dilemma. Dylan is attractive, appealing, out and proud. He’s also completely unaware that he’s a werewolf. It shouldn’t be Alex’s job to tell him, and warn him that gay wolves usually end up dead. But someone has to, before he finds out in blood and violence.
Chicago’s not Alex’s home town, but somehow he needs to protect Dylan from the local packs, protect the Packs from being outed by Dylan, and keep his cool around the first man to touch his own deeply-closeted heart.
Review: Jeeez! Kaje Harper hits us AGAIN with an amazing story full of some SERIOUS angst and feels.
I thought the previous books were full of stress and strain, but WOW this takes the cake!
I was so compelled by the idea that Dylan didn’t even know he was a werewolf and yet not only does he find himself being chased by thugs and rescued by someone to whom he feels attracted, but then he finds himself in a world where nothing makes sense and everything he thought he knew is up for questioning.
I have to admit, I was a little perturbed that the author felt we needed even MORE to fight against, as though the pack politics weren’t enough, we have the government now involved… I keep expecting these guys to find that calm place where everyone can settle down – but it doesn’t look that’s happening any time soon.
From what I’ve read, there might be a new book yet coming – I’m not sure if it’s planned or what – but from where we’re left off, I think there will be. I really, really hope everyone finally gets their happy ending.
If I have a complaint about this series, it’s that. Book after book ends with our couples together but nothing’s really resolved and it makes me anxious! I want them all settled, happy and SAFE!
As always, the writing is excellent and the characters multi-faceted and interesting, the drama is ….well, very dramatic and the romance is very, very sweet.
These aren’t books you can read as stand-alones, and I’m sure fans of the series will be psyched to read this if they haven’t already!
Overall Impression: I loved it!
