Kingdom of Askara, Book 2
Man and wolf. Sworn enemies in the battle for Askara. Can hate and betrayal ever lead to love?
Caleb Harken has spent six years wrongfully imprisoned for his father’s treachery. Tortured and reviled by the very wolf pack he should have been leading as alpha, he is not surprised to learn he’s finally to meet his death at the hands of the human rebel leader, Taegan Callan.
Taegan gave up his dreams of a life-mate and a family after seeing too many humans butchered at the hands of the wolves – even if Caleb doesn’t seem to be the bloodthirsty savage he expects, and even if he starts to long for a different kind of future with the wolf.
Can Caleb become the alpha he was always meant to be and lead his pack, or will he finally realize that winning his freedom means nothing when he has already lost his heart?
First, I want to say that I’m a big fan of the author, Victoria Sue, and I’ve really enjoyed most of her other works. I also enjoyed this, but I have to say that if I’d been reading this I’d have definitely been skimming. There are so many details and the romance between Caleb and Taegan is a clear path but our MCs seem so … oblivious that at times I was pretty frustrated.
While I appreciated the world building and adored the HEA and was totally surprised by the twists and turns… this wasn’t my favorite by the author.
That being said, it was still highly entertaining and I was glad I’d listened to it.
3.5 of 5 stars
Since I was listening to this and Joel Leslie was doing his absolutely amazing job of keeping me entertained, I was able to get through this – I’m not sure I would have otherwise. Joel gives us so many wonderful voices and adds so much color to the story you can’t help but be captivated!
