When the great war between the Redwoods and the Centrals occurred three decades ago, the Talon Pack risked their lives for the side of good. After tragedy struck, Gideon Brentwood became the Alpha of the Talons. But the Pack’s stability is threatened, and he’s forced to take mate—only the one fate puts in his path is the woman he shouldn’t want.

Though the daughter of the Redwood Pack’s Beta, Brie Jamenson has known peace for most of her life. When she finds the man who could be her mate, she’s shocked to discover Gideon is the Alpha wolf of the Talon Pack. As a submissive, her strength lies in her heart, not her claws. But if her new Pack disagrees or disapproves, the consequences could be fatal.

As the worlds Brie and Gideon have always known begin to shift, they must face their challenges together in order to help their Pack and seal their bond. But when the Pack is threatened from the inside, Gideon doesn’t know who he can trust and Brie’s life is could be forfeit in the crossfire. It will take the strength of an Alpha and the courage of his mate to realize where true loyalties lie.

Gideon Brentwood, the Alpha of the Talon pack never expected his fated mate to be a submissive, let alone be one from another pack. Brie Jamerson, daughter of Willow and Jasper of the Redwood Pack knew who her fated mate was since she was seventeen years old. She never acted on it because, one she is a submissive wolf and two, he is an Alpha of the Talon Pack. It was her belief that Alphas’ and  Submissives’ never mated. It was unheard of. So besides her best friend/cousin Charlotte, no one knew until years later when her family went to the Talon territory to discuss business.

Suspense, ✔. Drama, ✔. Passion, ✔. Envy, ✔. An evil plot to rule the world, ✔. All and all Carrie Ann Ryan delivers. I don’t know how she can knock out hits like she does, but please if it involves keeping us with the Redwoods and now the Talons; keep them coming.

I really enjoyed that we were able to grow with Gideon and Brie on their becoming one within their relationship. But most importantly, I enjoyed how Brie was able to develop a relationship with in her new pack whilst also growing in her abilities as an Alpha/Submissive. She definitely threw out the preconceived notions that the elders and even her cousin Finn threw in her face. The Brentwood’s are growing on me and I look forward to reading more about them, especially with what’s to come.
