This book caught my attention in the prologue and kept me gripped through the entire book. I can't believe that this is a debut novel. It is written so well that you would think the author has been writting books forever. Asher is one of those leading men that you have a love hate relationship with. Those eyes!!! This book never had a dull moment. I can't wait for book 2 to come out.

This is not your usual werewolf story. This book it dark, gritty and you feel a part of it. It moves slow to start, then shifts noticably, almost 2 books in one. Then, just when things start to come together and life makes a turn in the story, the book ends and you are left with... NNNNnnnnnoooooooo!!!!!! Trust me when I say i will be reading the rest of the series.
Sadly, this is the part when all my love for the book ends. The story is wonderful, characters are fleshed out, scenes are described well and visually. Then, my Kindle version goes off the rails. Multiple typographical errors, formatting flubs, missing spaces between words, added spaces, punctuation, the list goes on. Every time I stumbled on one of these it took me out of the story and I spent a minute re-reading the section to get around the glaring error and back into the scene. I, personally, would love it if the author took the Kindle version to a proofreader and cleaned up the text. It may just be me, but, when you publish the written word to the masses, there should be a bit of care taken to ensure there are as few problems as can be. Final Answer : Great story, but errors run thru it.

I've never read a book about shape-shifters before and wasn't too sure but I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anyone! Can't wait for book two to come out, and glad I only have to wait a month!

This story is about the Lake family lead by Asher Lake who is a wolf. He is the leader or "keeper" of shape-shifters called the Union. He is not well liked by some and hated by others. He was thrust into this position by the "keeper" before him early in his life due to a curse over that position. Needless to say, he has not done a very good job, but things are about to change.

Along with his brothers, Ari and Nixon, and some other shifters you will meet along the way, he sets out so solve the curse hanging over his life.

I highly recommend this book!

The storyline included many mysteries, some of which are revealed as the story unfolds, but more are added,keeping the reader guessing as to where this story will progress to. The mixture of characters were colourful and would tranfer well to a YA TV series and I imagine the sexy Lake boys would soon gather a cult following, but my favourite would have to be Kennedy who ani-shifts into a tiger.

I got this book during one of it's free periods on the Amazon Kindle store, and I feel like I won the lottery. The character and world development were excellent and it got me hooked. I've enjoyed the whole series so far and I'm eagerly awaiting the next one. The tension between Elle and Asher is so sweet! You will not be disappointed if you buy this book!

SYNOPSIS

Love is something everyone longs for at the deepest level—but for some, love is a curse. This is most certainly true for Asher Lake, the Keeper of an unknown group of people called ani-shifts. Ani-shifts, those with the ability to shift into animal forms, compose a secretive body of individuals known simply as the Union.

A wolf in shifter form, Asher lives with a curse placed upon him and his predecessors by the elusive Raven—a dark entity whose identity remains a mystery. According to the ancient archives, the Raven’s curse is conditional and set in motion by one fatal decision: if a Keeper ever allows himself to fall in love he will die.

Choosing to live in isolation within the walls of Lake Manor, a private estate concealed by the dense woods of Brokenridge, Asher has vowed never to love or to fall in love with anyone believing it to be the only way to survive. However, after ten years of neglecting his people and the protégés left in his care, along with the impending threats of an uprising, Asher learns the only way to break the Raven’s curse on future Keepers, thereby preventing them from suffering the same fate, is to accept his.

This becomes his strongest challenge of all when he encounters Elle Ison, the woman of his dreams. Does Elle hold the key? Can she help him change his fate?
