Blurb: Something is moving in the shadows of Hanover Hills.
Being the lead enforcer of a werewolf pack isn’t the easiest job in the world, but Deckard Warren doesn’t trust anyone else to do it. Most days he doesn’t trust anyone, period. He leads his unit of Ironheld Wolves–defending their territory and protecting their alpha–with vigilance and a wrath as unforgiving as he is. When a man who doesn’t know his own name is chased into wolf territory by a rival pack, Deckard discovers something he thought didn’t exist for him and that he knows he doesn’t deserve.
Colt is running, but from what? And to where? He doesn’t remember anything before the moment he crossed the border into Ironheld Wolf territory with only the clothes on his back. After he leaps straight into the arms of the gruffest, most intimidating man he thinks he’s ever met, the werewolf seems hell bent on helping Colt get his memories back if only so he can send him on his way. With no other options, Colt takes Deckard up on his offer of refuge and sets out to figure out what happened to him even as proximity to the werewolf threatens to have him losing more than the recollection of his past.
But when the shadows shift and enemies are brought to light, will Deckard and Colt find a way to stand together or watch as everything around them drowns in darkness?
Review: I really wanted to love this story of Deckard and Colt and who Colt turns out to be. But alas I was disappointed in the fact that it moved slowly for a good majority of the book as Colt and Deckard got used to each other. Colt has no idea who he is and so Deckard is gentle and understanding with him.
Colt is scared that he has no memory of who he is. The one constant in his life now is Deckard. A struggle for power in the pack comes to light and Deckard volunteers to be the alpha’s step in. When Deckard takes Colt to his alpha’s mom who is a witch, things start going fast and abrupt. The truth of who and what Colt is comes out and it’s a mind blower.
I wanted more in the way of the action scenes not a few sentences then bam it’s over. Not to mention the ending left a lot to be desired as it’s a cliffhanger. This book was not a balanced book.
It was an o.k. read for me
