Marcus has just become the only human ever to be Alpha of a werewolf pack and thwarted the plans of Anubis to destroy the goddess Sirius’ creation – the werewolves.
Now, Anubis has decided to focus his efforts instead on Marcus and his new pack, to try and destroy the pack from within. In order to do this, Anubis seeks the one thing Marcus wants above all else and when he finds it, will use that to get him to walk away from his mates and the pack.
Unaware of the evil god’s plans, Marcus works together with Kellan and Ricoh, not only trying to help Nate recover from the vicious torture he has undergone at the hands of the terrorist group, The Winter Circle, but to also come to terms with leading a pack of over two thousand wolves.
Marcus soon will be faced with a dilemma, but will he give everything up for his mates and the pack or will the temptation Anubis offers him be too much for one human to refuse? Will Marcus put his wolves before himself or will he be tricked into leaving them behind forever?
This picks up right where we left off in book four – Marcus and Ricoh, Kellan and Nate are just now together and starting to work on being mated. Nate is still very traumatized and trying to get rid of his wolf. Marcus is exhausted from trying to make all his mates and his new pack happy AND his legs hurt. Ricoh is feeling insecure about being a part of this mate group and Kellan is working hard on soothing everyone.
The Winter Circle is still trying to get the upper hand and setting bombs to do it.
Though I love all the mates in this series and in this book especially, I found this book to be really disconnected for me. I wanted more time on relationship building and less time on the intricacies of the pack dynamic.
It’s not a long book and I know more is coming, but we barely got any time with these guys in the last book all together so I was really hoping they’d spend some quality time as one unit in this book.
We do get one very satisfying scene with all four participants acting as equal mates – yay! I look forward to the next book and finding out how parenthood treats these guys!
