It was very difficult to get into the story. There is no prologue giving you a background or a history and readers feel very dropped into the middle of the story and a bit lost.
The main characters are very intriguing but yet you feel as if you are missing a piece of what makes them who they are by not having a true picture of their background. Eventually you get there and start seeing pieces of their past but it takes almost until the very end of the book.
The universe created for this story seems somewhat incomplete and inconsistent. Several times I had to go back and re-read some of the interactions that were the societal basis. There is also a very medieval hierarchy/caste system at play. Which leads to an entire demographic of people being treated as less than or slaves. If you are looking for a true omega verse this is not for you.
There are possible triggers in this as well such as childhood trauma. It is hinted at and then some what confirmed by the end of the book. Also somewhat troublesome and triggering is the hunting of feral werewolves. There are a lot more questions than answers on why this practice is allowed to persist; this plot line is one of the most uncertain and disturbing, as information is brought to light it seems contradictory why they would allow this instead of a natural progression to happen. And why allow humans to participate in something that clearly has to do with mental stability of a different species; how can they judge and exterminate?
Probably the most disturbing part of the book is I can’t figure out if these are wolves that shape shift or if they are werewolves or are they a combination of both, a hybrid.
After struggling for days to read this I don’t think I will pick up the next book in the series willingly due to this being so difficult to grasp the story and plot lines of this universe with under developed characters.
At the beginning I was a bit afraid, because it starts with an m/f scene and I thought it would be somehow m/m/f, but I'm glad I stayed and had hope because it was clearly m/m. That tiny scene was important for the gay for you part of the story.
Talen and Alex were both so great, I fell for them both. Alex is gay and in love with Talen, everyone knows this only Talen doesn't. Talen is straight, he and everyone thinks so. He only has brotherly and friendly feelings toward Alex... yes? Or not? He could be in love with Alex? His wolf tells him this all the time and Talen has to believe his wolf, right?
The shifter scenes and the whole shifter community was so amazing. And this book is a really great start to the series, so many unanswered questions, what will happen next?
The story has little to no romance/erotica - I mean there is no kissing, no sex. There are only innocent and sweet touches and thoughts. And I love this kind of romance too. I don't call it slow burn, it's just sweet, innocent, first young love. Can't wait to see more of them in the next book.
The gentleness of just may lead to the greatness of wrath within.
Talen and Alex story is just beginning. The council and pack'ss looks down on basically anyone not an ALPHA, what happens when one is viewed as flawed? Alex is wanting to change the rules but fear makes him a prisoner of his pack, Talen was sent to live as a grunt all because someone deemed it so, leaving Alex spinning from the cruelty. Was sending him to 'visit' Redpaw pack a low trick unseen? After another run in with the Roman.
Ugh! This book is bring on all the feels, I just hate this council over all anarchy bullcrap. It was like reading a train wreck, unable to turn away left without knowing the out fall. Did everyone have it wrong about Alex's wolf? How about Talen's nature? When pushing becomes to much why is everyone shocked.

I did almost put it down at first, the opening chapter just drops straight into what feels like the middle of a scene, and it's not a very interesting one. I'm very glad I stuck with it and adjusted to the fact it's not a traditional romance.
There are a lot of characters. And not many of them are likeable, but I do really like the main pair. I can't wait to see how their relationship progresses and if they can do anything to change the backwards thinking of the pack.
Warning/spoiler: The parents are awful. They're "I'm abusing you because I love you" types. And I really hope they realise they're terrible parents and change or get killed.
