Finally the story came together after a sudden violent confrontation. I felt so sorry for the MC who narrated the book. I shared his parents frustration at his inability to understand emotions. He was was so robotic without any affect. The conflict between his wolf and his human was painful to see. His treatment of his only friend was abominable over the years, but he was just being himself.
After he became an adult his life was if anything harder. He and his family experienced some terrible times before things began to turn around. Coming to terms with having a male mate was extremely difficult for him and other wolves in his & surrounding packs. His mate was truly made for him. The ying to his yang. The Cheech to his Chong. I was glad to see him with someone who understood him. I cannot recommend this book highly enough, especially to The Mates series fans and those of you who've never enjoyed them.
There is death, betrayal, loss and pain but it's balanced by a healthy pack, family and finally love. Samuel knows from a very young age that he will be the pack alpha when he is old enough and he takes that knowledge far to seriously. He never gets to be a kid, so busy pushing himself to be the best ever he doesn't learn empathy, friendship or connection. Instead he focuses on pack knowledge, rules, lore and law. He knows he is lacking, he just doesn't know how to fix it. No matter how much Samuel's parents tried to help him, he just couldn't understand how to relate to anyone on a personal level.
There is a great line : "It was akin to describing the color yellow to someone who had been born without sight—all the descriptions in the world wouldn’t solve the riddle."
Korban is the presumptive Alpha of the neighboring pack. He and Samuel met first when they were 8 and eleven. Korban is friendly, playful and nice, everything Samuel isn't so of course Samuel hates him.
It's adorable getting to know Samuel as he grows up and his befuddlement at Korban's advances of friendship. So of course since he can't be confused about himself everything must be Korban's fault. “Love and hate.” He reached for my zipper. “They’re two sides of the same coin. Both emotions are powerful, visceral. If you don’t recognize one, don’t expect to feel it, then you might confuse it with the other.”
Once we get to the tragedy, betrayal and loss the story of Samuel growing into manhood has pulled you so deeply in the pain is almost visceral. I really wanted to cry, but Samuel couldn't, the hits just kept coming. Thankfully, finally Korban was able to step in before Samuel lost his mind.
We get to hear that Ethan & Miguel are still visiting with Ethan's family but unable to step on Miancarem pack lands. Zev is still a respected Alpha of the Eztagold pack and is able to help with some of Samuel's mate tied confusion.
In the end I was well satisfied with an enjoyable read, no dragging annoyances or nagging issues. I'm not sure if the author intends to continue this series but there is room for more and now that he has apparently hit his stride here I'm looking forward to it.
On the other hand, Korban had known whom Samuel was to him since he was 11years okay and had patiently hoped over the years that Samuel would realise what they were to each other, 'True Mates'. Korban was the exact opposite of Samuel, he was amiable, easy going and was beloved by many. A threat to the pack by a challenge from Dirk Keller, Korban's father which resulted in a tragedy brought these two face to face again and it finally dawned on Samuel what had been missing from his life all along, his True mate. It was a big wake up call for Samuel, because he realised that some of the Pack guides and laws that he had studied most of his life was not only inaccurate but was wrong as he was a living proof of it. On the positive side, he was more grounded having found his true mate and together they face the challenges and threats that reared it's ugly head. This book was well written, it had all the markings of a great shifter novel, Love, action, drama and great sex , let's not forget a HEA. (It was also lovely to hear that ETHAN and MIGUEL were still doing great after so many generations together ) What more can one ask for? I highly recommend this book to all lovers of great shifter romance novels.
