Sebastian Volkov, a fox shifter raised among werewolves, ran from everything he ever loved after a brutal attack that left him fearing his own shadow. That night a single kiss saved his life and left him with fantasies of a man whose face he couldn’t remember. When Sebastian’s car breaks down in a small Washington town, he meets an Alpha werewolf who reminds him vaguely of a stranger’s kiss.
A year ago Liam Ulrich, Alpha of the Northern Cascade’s Pack, shared a magic filled kiss with a virtual stranger, the infamous Witchblood child of the most powerful werewolf in the world. Since that night, Liam has been waiting for Sebastian to find his way home. Liam knows that Sebastian doesn’t trust easily, or at all, so he’s going to have to give his prickly mate time and space.
The past Sebastian tried to escape still stalks him and slowing down gives it time to catch up.
When the werewolves’ ultimate enemy rises up to cast its shadow over them all, Sebastian realizes he will have to stop running or risk losing everything…. including his hope of a future with Liam.

This was really good!
This is a fated mates story with a “cinderfella” feel in that Sebastian doesn’t know all his potential and Liam’s mating with Sebastian is an untapped source of power as well. There are plenty of bad guys and some guys you don’t know on which side they fall. There is some hot smexy times, but lots of gory violence.
There are some parts I didn’t love: The reference to past lovers in ways that didn’t seem to be completely “settled”. The violence. Sometimes I wasn’t always clear on the world building.
But in general I loved the magic, the romance, the fated mates, the unconscious drive towards his mate and the HEA was amazing!
I can’t wait for more from the series!
Tyler Kent is a new to me narrator and he did a nice job with this. There were some flubs and he is not as smooth as some narrators, but he did a good job with the different characters.
