Blurb: Kaiyo’s bloodline has been part of the Garrow pack for generations. He has been destined to be shaman, to anchor the werewolves to the land, and lend aid with the force of his Ousía. When Kaiyo is fourteen, however, an attacking group kills all of the adults in the pack, leaving young Ahmik, only fifteen, as leader.
Their worries don’t end there.
Smelling blood in the water, enemies hunt the decimated pack from all sides. Kaiyo grows increasingly reckless in his desperation to defend his pack, to finally grow into his shaman powers, and to protect Ahmik: the boy he loves.
In the end, Kaiyo loses his pack anyway.
Packless, landless, Kaiyo drifts. For ten years, he fights to remake himself into the shaman, and the man, he was meant to become. One phone call from his old pack, though, and he is forced to return.
Something is killing children and Kaiyo is the only one strong enough to stop it.
Kaiyo never thought his journey would take him back to his old land, his old pack, and to Ahmik. Forced to face his past, and the wounded love that still aches for Ahmik, Kaiyo will be tested like never before.
Content Warning: This story contains themes of depression and associated thoughts and behaviours. However, as always, it focuses on recovery and strength.
This book takes place in the Natural Magic world but can be read as a standalone.
Review: This story is about Kaiyo and Ahmik but from Kaiyo’s POV. It’s an emotional, telling story of suffering, loss, tragedy, struggles and love. Kaiyo and Ahmik suffer unimaginable loss at the beginning. This sets in motion Kaiyo’s journey in helping others and accomplishing his goal in becoming a shaman of the pack.
I loved the journey and the details. Though I understood Ahmik’s reason for doing what he did I would have liked his POV as well to better to understand him and where he was coming from. The characters from the first book do not make an appearance in this installment which was a pity.
I loved how Kaiyo reconnected with the pack after being gone so long then called back to help with a mystery and not being able to leave for year. It made my heart happy after all the depression scenes and therapy sessions in the book.
This story was an emotional roller coaster. Good read.
