I have been getting more and more into shifter books. So I was excited to read this one. It was definitely interesting, and different.
Janine, also the Major, is called in to lead a special task unit called the Alpha Squad. A few months prior, shifters had come out to the world, so this unit was to help work along side any agencies, especially law enforcement, when it came to any kind of shifter affairs. The orders for this unit to be put together was direct orders from parliament. They were to be put through intense military training. But not everyone wanted them to succeed. Janine is left between a rock and a hard spot. Doing what she is told to do, or what her heart tells her. Not only does she have all that hanging over her head, she also has this crazy pull to one of the shifter recruits.
Eric doesn't want to be apart of the Alpha Squad, but he goes along with it because he wants to try and make a difference. As a bear, he wants the gap between humans and shifters to be closed with as much understanding and ease as possible. He also helped lead the New Alliance, a shifter organization, when the shifters came out to the world. Little did he know, the Major in charge of his new squad, is someone more important to him, and his bear, than just his superior. But with the stakes already stacked against the whole operation, it makes things harder for both of them.
I enjoyed how different this one was. I like stories where the supernatural is opened to the world, and this one was. Even though it was the early stages of it, it was still interesting. I loved seeing the individuals work and become a team together. Which is what the military is about. This just added to my love for shifters.
Wow if you think Lorelei Moone's books are great reads. You
are so going to love the Audible books even more. I think
I have read all her books. But man this new series is great
and the narrator for this was wonderful. Loved how she used
voice inflection to show depth was and how she gave each
character a voice. You could feel the conceding tone for
Captain Bentley the human spec ops guy, the tired sound to
Eric, or the excitement to his brother Adams voice. The steel
in Janine the tough as nails Major. And you could hear each
emotion the characters felt. Loved the Scottish accent added
for wolf shifter was amazing.
Now about the book.
Oh how I loved this new series by Lorelie Moone. I adored
her Scottish Werebear series and this one is even better.
This book is written so well that it flows nicely and seamlessly
from one page to the next. So much so I was at the end
before I knew it. I cannot wait to see what happens
with the alpha squad next.
This book is about Eric and Janine. She is the major in
charge of, well not wiping them into shape. She has orders
to make them fail. But she is determined to see them
succeeded. Even if doing so means disobeying orders and
could end her career. And Eric is the big burly bear shifter
that is assigned to her squad. Along with Eric he has his
brother, a wolf, and 2 humans. They have to learn how to
work together to make this work. And Eric is having a hard
time as he keeps hearing her thoughts. And he is hoping that
she can hear his, as for that may change everything. It is a
phenomenon that only occurs between mates. So if she can
hear him too? He would be so happy. But also as a leader in
his former job, could be a challenge to Janie.
Now before I ruin this for you I will leave off here. I hope you
enjoy this book as much as I did. If you do like this book,
please consider leaving a review. The Authors really like it
when you do; they value your opinions too.
Narrator Audrey Lusk did a fine job with keeps character voices straight not taking away form the story at all and keeping the flow of the story at a strong steady pace. Kudos to you Ms. Lusk.
In this story it starts in the awkward time as shifters have been outed and the humans are aware of their presence now. As with any other minority some countries accept and some don’t. Eric, our bear shifter hero, gets asked to go to alpha squad boot camp and is stunned when he enters and is knocked off his axis for commanding officer Major Janine Williams. There is a lot of places where the story could have taken turns for the worse but you can see that Ms. Moone has a plan on where she is going. There is a lot going on that you have to pay close attentions to as some plots are revealed quickly and right on top of each other.
Major Janine Williams is stuck between a rock and a hard place as she has orders to do one thing and finds her conscious taking her on another path. While she is hearing a male voice in her head anytime she is around Eric she begins to find her path and you will cheer along as decisions and plans are made. *I don’t want to spoil it!*
The only complaint I had about the book was that it didn’t have enough action. When I think of shifter romances I am usually waiting for the huge fight scene and I don’t know if this will be expanding in future stories or not with this book or if this was it. I wonder as a military brat myself how the “military” part of the story will continue to play out if there are future books.
This story is a wonderful intro in what could be an exciting series as Ms. Moone lays an excellent intro story.
