The greatest adventure is what lies ahead.
Today and tomorrow are yet to be said.
The chances, the changes are all yours to make.
The mold of your life is in your hands to break.

Charles and Anna are left as heads of the pack while Bran is off on a vacation to Africa, without this mate. Yeh it something is weird, but I'll not tell you what. So Charles if left with his mate and Leah. with all their issues and snipping at each other. Talk about a rock and a hard place, ouch. I know you're thinking poor Charles, hah ! those were the easy times. There are some wolves who live on the edge, the windings, bare sane if at all, there are under the pack protection, aka his. One very old and very powerful wolf is captured, her mate who holds enormous power asks for help. This is were you should start feeling sorry for Charles and Anna because things go really bad and have many strings attached. Somebody has betrayed them, perhaps somebody close. But they are not alone, they have the pack, and my favorite big bad wolf is prominent, Asil, the Moor.
Oh my, what a twisted knot. Charles and Anna , aww what a cute mated couple , blah blah blah. Asil, dark quiet mysterious and powerful is finally explored more in this book. His history, the glimpse allowed left me thirsty for more. He is such a tease. I want an Asil book, no I need one. The rest of the pack was interesting, and played well together.
I enjoyed it all, except Bran and... Bran went AWOL and acted out of character from what we've seen of him in the past. Something revealed about his possible motives for something way off base was sort of weird, I hope it doesn't lead anywhere. The mystery of who was pretty easy to figure out, the why wasn't. I was scratching my head going "Hey Wolf ?!?!? Didn't you get that ??? Hello ?" But they didn't hear me or Captain Obvious when he spoke to them.
I am in my happy place. Dani, the woman has gone through some massive trials and made some huge transitions. In the beginning it was confusing, to see a young girl suffer so and be seen as more in the future. I admit I did not like young Dani, she was a thorn to me in the story. Oh there was some serious backlash towards Ms. Moning, speculations based on her age, before the tale was finished being told. If only they'd waited they would have seen this beautiful, wonderfully magical woman finally grab ahold of her red threads and become what she was ment to be. The truth of why this obsession was there made me jump and scream "YEH!" I'm not going to spoil it for anyone, you don't need to know more.
Another great book from Ms. Moning. She continues to be one of my top 5 authors, one I re-read from often. I can not wait for her next work.. Bravo Ms. Moning, you rock !
I feel like I've run a marathon, uphill, in the rain through thick clay mud. So much has been happening.. my brain, my hormones, my heart. Oh Dani what a power you've become. Omg that kiss, comando, the.... ARGH I hate real life time waisters like work
Ryo fans he has upped his game big time
Lor- omg that man has a history
I don't even know how to explain this story. It is a fantasy, futuristic. It is a love-ish story but not like you'd expect. It is dystopian, dark and deadly. It is a physiological horror. It is a mind game. It was a hallucinogenic trip . I don't know if I liked it, I wanted to quit it but couldn't stop myself from listening. It was crazy and yet it all fit. Brilliantly weird.
Note: I heard "Borne" so many times I almost lost my mind.
Entertaining, NA, with smexy moments and too much over thinking and not communicating drama. It was better than book two. I still have a problem with the female MC's personality flip flop. She goes from super upfront talkative educated woman to closed mouth hide her feeling drama ridden girl. Oh and the male MC wasn't much better, but he never claimed to be an out in the open type. Is it just this NA thing ? I don't get it. I just wanted to slap them both and tell them to just talk already. The stupid silence "what will he/she think" drove me nuts ! More ridiculous angst drama than a YA read. I gave it three stars because the author was skilled enough to made me finish the book even when I wanted to through it across the room.
This is the 4th time I've read a NA book and I had the same reaction. I am not a good fit with this genre.
