Blurb: Some live on memories…
Almost dying during a pack uprising has a way of shaking things up. I’m no longer Mr. Laid Back now that there’s an itch under my skin I can’t scratch.
On a volunteer mission that goes beyond the walls of our compound, we enter the territory of a pack long thought dead, and find ourselves on the business end of their spears.
What I’m not prepared for is what I find within their walls—The one shifter I never thought I’d see alive, the one I’d mourned twice, the one I’d always loved. He is alive, and if I have anything to do with it, he’ll stay that way. But he’s got secrets, and exposing them could lead us to an enemy worse than the bloodthirsty undead shifters wanting to kill us all…
Review: There is so much to love about this series: great dialogue, interesting and unique storylines, zombie-weres, mystery and reunited first loves. I totally fell head over heels for Bay and Nash in book one, and though that story belonged to Dare and Reese, those two gave us just enough of a hint that I knew I would love them in this book…and it did not disappoint.
This is a story about werewolves, weres, and zombie-weres. Similar to many human zombie stories where if you are bitten you are doomed, and that same chattering that causes the hair to stick up on the back of my neck is here in this story, too. I love zombie stories, but they really do scare me. But, this is not really a horror story, they are just an interesting side piece that our weres and werewolves have to be wary of when they travel outside the protected walls.
Nash and Bay were best friends and young lovers…until one day while Nash and Bay’s sister were outside the protected walls Bay’s sister was killed by the zombie weres and Nash disappeared and presumed dead. In book one, Nash was found again, but then sacrificed his life to save Dare…and was presumed dead yet again. Sounds a bit convoluted but it works because Nash has a secret and the guilt is literally killing him.
It took a little while to get the whole story out of Nash and piece together what happened so long ago, where he has been for so many years, and how they can prevent something like that from happening again.
Even though Nash starts out kind of weak and sickly, he quickly regained his alpha strength and became the man that Bay had always loved, needed and never gave up on finding. These two, no matter how much life conspired to keep them apart, were destined to be mates. Maybe not the true mates that Dare and Reese are, but still legit mates nonetheless.
Such a great series and satisfying follow up to book one. Recommending both this book and the series, and looking forward to book three. Enjoy!
Overall Impression: I really liked it!
