"Marc Daniel's Shadow Pack is a fast-moving, no-frills mob thriller/murder mystery with werewolves. The story is bloody and action-packed, and the plot is compelling enough to keep you turning pages. " - San Francisco Book Review

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Would I have been annoyed if I'd paid for the book instead of picking it up for free? Yes.
Would I read it again or any book with the same characters? No.
Were there any humorous bits to lighten some of the seriousness of all the deaths? No.
I'm sure some will enjoy it and appreciate the effort the author put into the story.
Sorry. But really. GET THYSELF AN EDITOR. This actually COULD be a really good novel. It is not that, in current form.
To the writer (don't give up! You can do this!):
Cut it down. Simplify. you do NOT have to tell the reader everything you know about the Main Character - in fact, it is a better book if you do NOT. Develop some of the paperboard secondary characters with a full background (for YOURSELF) to the point where they are 'real' on the page. Consider reducing the (truly excessive) body count - less is more.
And for pete's sake: fewer point of view characters, and you do not need a hundred eleventy twelve chapters.
The other characters in the story were not as well defined and I didn't really like the ending, that said I will read more by this author.

where I could have re-read it straight away, especially after the very good twist towards the end. This twist
explained a lot of the things that were puzzling me - and Michael!
Michael is non-human and can shift into a ........ (no spoiler!). In his present human form he is a ranger in
Yellowstone Park and an expert on animals, both normal and supernatural. A Texas policeman is the only person who
knows what Michael really is. Steve asks Michael to come to Texas to identify what animal savaged another policeman
and his dogs. Michael realizes the killer was a werewolf, but he and Steve have to pretend it was a large wolf - or be thought
certifiable! Werewolves are deadly enemies to Michael, though only if they attack him with the whole pack.
When Steve is also killed by a werewolf, and then his partner, Dave, survives an attack, Michael stays around to help Dave
find the killers. The police blame the Russian gangsters who have an uneasy business arrangement with the werewolf pack.
Michael discovers who is the pack leader, but he has no proof. He also knows that the police force has been infiltrated with
werewolves, so he and Dave don't know who to trust.
There were witches in the story and a wizard, Ez, who came to Michael's aid several times. The story was complicated,
but not too much so. The plot moved from Texas to Yellowstone and back to Texas. There were times when I wondered
how Michael would manage to survive the many attacks on him and the people he was trying to protect. There was a lot of
killing both with weapons and by the werewolves. There were a few F-words but no explicit sex.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book, especially the twists towards the end. A recommended book.
very first page. I kept changing my mind who the
cop killers was, and was very surprised at the end
to discover who it actually was. Michael or should
I say mysterious Michael was the hero of the story
by far, and I cannot wait to read what is in store on
his next journey. The Author of this splendid book
should be very proud of what he has written, and
I also liked the fact that there wasn’t all this intense
sex that some writers seem to think that readers want.
Well done to Marc Daniel!!
