"Pack" by Jeaniene Frost- 3.5 stars
In Pack, we meet Marlee who, while hiking alone, gets attacked by werewolves. She's rescued from her attackers by Daniel, who also happens to be a werewolf. Marlee is taken back to the town the pack lives in while they wait to see if Marlee is going to change at the full moon.
While she's stuck waiting, Daniel is guarding her to make sure she doesn't escape. There is attraction between the two, which Marlee attributes to Stockholm syndrome, but Daniel thinks is because of something else.
This short story was very different from what Ms. Frost normally writes. It was good, But seemed too short to develop the story properly. If Ms. Frost were to take it and make it into a full length novel, I think it would do very well.
"In Sheep's Clothing" by Meljean Brooks- 4 stars
Here we meet Emma, who left Pine Bluff six years ago after she was attacked and turned into a werewolf. She's returning now, having gained control over her wolf so that she can tell her former flame, Nathan, that she's a werewolf, and so she can settle back into the town.
Unfortunately, Emma is attacked by serial murderer who has been plaguing the town, and bites him. Now she and Sheriff Nathan need to find the murderer before he becomes even more dangerous as a new werewolf.
This story is great. Even though it is short, it allows for romance, suspense, and action. The characters were lacking a bit of development, but they were truly likable anyways. Great story overall.
"Grace of Small Magics" by Ilona Andrews- 5 stars
Everything that Ilona Andrews writes is amazing, and this story continues that trend. Meet Grace, who recently learned that her family is indebted to another. She is called upon due to the debt to help the other family in place of her mother.
Grace meets Nassar, who is a revenant, or someone who has taken over someone else's body. Grace does not like that her family is indebted to this other family, but is willing to do whatever she has to to keep her family safe.
This story may be short, but it is complex, riveting, and keeps you entranced to the end. I sincerely hope that Ilona Andrews does more with this world, because it is a gem.
