I purchased this book because of the great premise and I had read the first one, I will not give away plots or spoilers but I will say the Authors needs to get a better proof reader, there are way too many incorrect words and word usage.
This book lacks continuity and the flow was very herky jerky -- people have compared it to BDB, but beyond them calling each other brother and sorta residing in the same house with somewhat similar names, there really is no real comparison.
This Author has more than one scene in the book where the man has changed into a Dire wolf and the next sentence, same page he's taking off his clothes or opening a door etc. I spent more time rereading paragraphs and trying to discern what the Author was attempting to say than I did just reading and enjoying the book.
I am still wondering what happened to the pregnant girl from the last book. At one point Cain says he does not trust her and then we never hear what they did to her. Lastly I feel no love for the Characters of Stray and Kate I just didn't buy into the instant chemistry and then all the unneeded angst. Seems she tried to add too many bits and pieces that have already been done and done well in other peoples books to this one and failed. But the premise is good, to bad the writing is not.
The book is fast paced, and can be confusing at times with all the new characters, but it feels like a good and necessary set up for a series to come.
"I think I'm in love with her. I know I'm her familiar. There's a different feel to the two things."
Kate Walters always knew she was different growing up and her mother tried over and over again to put a stop to it right up until her death. Katie was in the car with her parents the day they died and she should would have perished with them if someone hadn't drag her out of the car. The person who rescued her left her with more power than she had before and a handprint on her back, that only she can see, which guides her through life. One night Katie's world is turned upside down and a man named Stray is there to protect and guide her into the new world she discovers.
Stray is a Dire Wolf, a supernatural who can shift to a wolf, has special abilities and is immortal. Stray is part of a small pack in the U.S. and has kept his former clan in Greenland a secret from his brothers. Stray and his older brother Killian have been part of a prophecy their entire lives and have tried to stay apart to make sure it doesn't come true. When Stray rescues Katie he immediately recognizes that she is a witch and he is her familiar. Stray feels a pull towards Katie that is usually only for mates and he will protect the powerful witch even if it means going up against other Dires.
I wanted to love this book, heck I would have been happy with just liking it but unfortunately neither of those options happened. There is a lot going on in Dire Wants and personally it was too much. Every single character gets to have a POV and there are so many storylines and subplots that it can get confusing and sometimes boring. I wanted to like Stray and Katie but I never felt that I had the chance and every time I started to get into their story it switched to someone else and the momentum was gone.
As I mentioned I wanted to like Stray and Katie but it took forever for anything to happen between them and I got annoyed with how Stray was so hot and cold with her. Katie only learns she's a witch after Stray informs her of it but he and the other Dires hold it against her for the better half of the book. These two also pick some very weird times to act on their feelings for one another and it took even longer for Stray to admit his feelings for Katie even though he shares them with everyone else.
There is so much going on in this book that I felt like keeping a list of my own going just to keep everything straight. I understand plotlines need to be set up for future books but this was excessive and then add in all the POVs and I was too overwhelmed to enjoy the book. I am a huge fan of shifter books but this one fell flat and I almost DNFed it a couple of times.
I recommend starting this series from the beginning because there is way too much going on for someone to just jump right in and not be confused. I personally won't be continuing on with this series, even though I would like to read about the woman who snags Vice. I was very disappointed with this book overall.
