First, what I liked about this book was Sabrine's take on werewolf lore. After the debacle that is "Twilight" I'm a little gun-shy about writers taking liberties with established paranormal mythologies. However, Sabine does a nice job of paying homage to tradition, while putting her own spin on were legends.
Also, the characters (as with all the men in this series) are very engaging. It's nice to read about people other than the typical gorgeous white guys. Sam and Dakota's voices are strong and clear, and you as the reader get a great sense/visual of what these men would be like if they were standing right in front of you.
And as always with Sabrine's work, the subtle humor was spot on. Speaking of "Twilight," I chuckled at the jabs to that book. They were smartly done and didn't come off as meanspirited. Sam and Dakota's inner monologues were also a hoot to privy to.
However, as I said in the opening, over half of this book was Sam and Dakota knocking boots. I don't mind, but it seems it was done because the author didn't know (or couldn't decide) in what direction to take the non-bedroom action. It's really a shame since she had SOOO much to work with. This is the first appearance of Shifters in the series, and while we did get some info on the were's background and packs I wanted to know more. I'm aware that this may be addressed in future installments, so I'm not really counting this against the book. What I am counting is the lack of action, drama and suspense that could have taken place had we not had to read page after page of Sam and Dakota gettin' in on. The tension between the packs was ripe for exploration throughout the book, but all we got was a big (and well written) fight scene at the end of the book.
Another bug-a-boo I have is that the format of Sabine's book are becoming predictable. There's a vague action scene at the beginning (that may, or may not have something to do with events later in the book). Then a couple of chapters of the main characters meeting. Follow that up with tons of sex. Throw in the big fight/conflict scene. And finally wrap things up with everyone wanting to get married and have kids. I'm really hoping she mixes things up in later books. I'd like to make it through the rest of the series without having guessed what's coming next.
I do enjoy Sabrine's writing, and will continue on with this series. However, this was not her best work. Buy it so you don't get lost in the series, but don't expect too much and you won't be disappoint (like I was!).
Sam is feeling lonely, he has no relationship, no sense of being needed. His mom and dad want grandkids and he isn't getting any younger. His friend Josh, a fellow Skull Blaster, convinces his to go to Alaska and help Wayne protect the park from poachers, and to get back to nature. He loves it there, but life does not stop, so he heads towards Josh and Mark's house.
Dakota was kicked out of his house at 16. His parents disowned him, and he had to survive. When he left with someone he had only known for a very short time, he almost lost his life. Thanks to a white wolf that bit him and left him in the care of a pack, Dakota was a werewolf. When he and the alpha's son were caught having sex, he was kicked out of the pack. He finds himself being chased by poachers when he strays to far from the park.
Sam hits the small black wolf with his truck. He takes the wolf with him, afraid that he is seriously injured. He calls his friends, Josh and Mark, and tells them what happened. They tell him that the wolf is Dakota, the same wolf that saved Mark from dying in the snow. Sam becomes attached to the wolf and decides to keep him. Sam goes to the bar down the road, and ends up saving "Darren" from a beat down. Little does he know that they were both werewolves, or that Darren is Dakota. They fall for each other, and Sam wants to help Darren. Things get complicated, but they meet up at the Denny's, where Sam learns the truth. Sam doesn't care, and brings Dakota home with him. We get to meet more of the wolves, but Dakota realizes that the former pack is going to come for him, and it could get dangerous. When he is abducted, the good wolves rally to him him back. But Sam won't let them do it without him, and the trouble begins. Can they save Dakota? Will they lose any of the good wolves? What happens when Sam rushes in? Will either of them survive what happens? Who is the big white wolf? This book changes everything that we know about these guys. A whole new world opens up, and I loved every bit of it. This is a great book, especially if you love paranormal stories. If you have come this far and love these books, go ahead and grab the rest, they just get better and better!
Sam gets turned into a werewolf by Dakota in order to save him but I feel that Sam being turned just strengthens their bond and link as mates. The small parts of the story about the Drake brothers and Sawyer, Xander, Grayson, and Wyatt finding their mates is interesting. Makes the reader want to read more about it since it's never mentioned whose mated with who except for Wyatt and Preston (who are too young to mate).
I'll definitely continue reading to the next book! :)
