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...
I don’t often venture into PNR and when I do, it’s usually from established PNR writers OR fave ones. The latter is the case here. If you’re a Megan fan like me, you’re gonna love this. If you’re a shifter rom fan, you’re gonna love this. Whatever, you’re gonna love this!
Reese was in a bad place when he met Dare. Bad, as in he was in Dare’s pack’s dungeon. As soon as they met, they both realized that they’re each other’s true mate, so it goes without saying that the pull is right there. The lust is immediate and very palpable.
Meanwhile, as they’re grappling with the idea of being mated to each other, Reese has all the intentions of looking after his family and finding a place where they belong. And Dare, as a leader of his pack, has responsibilities of his own.
I can’t even fully describe how much I enjoyed seeing Reese and Dare navigated their way around each other. There was such an ease to their interaction even when it was adversarial. Individually, their strengths shone through in their thoughts and actions. Reese’s sense of humor will catch you off guard in the most endearing way. Family and freedom is clearly important to him. His care and concern for Dare is heartfelt. Dare is as alpha as alpha gets. His protective instinct is too delish for words. And his care and concern for Reese is just swoonalicious.
Now, Reese + Dare = smokin’ hawt!!!!!! As true mates, the heat between these two was combustible. Lotsa’ smexy times to be had!!! And you know what, not one felt gratuitous. And what’s more delish, past the lust is the true affection that developed between these two… le sigh…
This is very well paced that lets you see Reese and Dare get to know each other without compromising the plot. In this dystopian world they’re in, their needs boiled down to that of simple times. It’s become about survival, protecting your own, and just finding that person to stand next to you. As the story’s reaching its climax, my heart was racing for these two. And to see the love they have for each other, whether they were ready to admit or not, it was splendid to see how it all manifested in the way it unfolded. Sooo cool!
What can I say, I bought every bit of this world that Megan has created for our shifter H’s. Again, this is coming from someone who normally doesn’t read PNR. So that alone counts for something, no? And for me to be eagerly anticipating the rest of the series is an understatement.
Whatever motivated Megan to switch things around and venture into the world of PNR, I’m glad she did. Another winning read, yay!
