Note: This event has been postponed until Monday, Sept. 9.
Good morning, everyone! I have several great announcements to make today. On
September 6th, Friday, the long awaited sequel to Kendall McKenna’s Strength of the Pack releases from MLR Press and to celebrate, Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words is hosting a two – part guest blog by Kendall McKenna as well as a two- book contest/giveaway.
On Thursday, Part 1 of Kendall McKenna’s blog will be posted as well as kick off the first book giveaway. For those of you new to Kendall McKenna, she is one of my absolute must have authors. Her stories include some of the most authentic, gritty military characters in recent memory, so realistic that she has garnered the approval of soldiers who have read her books and commented on her remarkable details and knowledge of the military universe. In this series, The Tameness of the Wolf, Kendall McKenna gives us a new twist on wolfshifters. In her stories, the wolfshifters and the military work together in special units, each with their own commander. It is a new arrangement and not without its own unique issues and misunderstandings. I love the way her universe combines the boredom and terror that goes hand in hand with combat units abroad with the supernatural element of wolf shifters with their pack rules and hierarchy. It’s amazing and compelling.
The first book in the series, Strength of the Pack (The Tameness of the Wolf #1), revolves around the dynamic relationship between Lt.. Lucas Young and the True Alpha pack leader Sargent Noah Hammond, who has just transferred into his platoon. We watch as they first establish a working relationship and then a personal one, a bond steeped in myth and old legends. It’s raw, primal, disciplined and oh so real.
There is a power and strength to McKenna’s characters equal to the intensity of the military actions and battles the platoons and soldiers find themselves in. McKenna’s wolfshifters have a true primal feel to their characters, you never forget the animalistic behaviors exhibited are their true natures, not ones they assumed. The author’s Marines exude the military discipline and attitudes that Marine training and experience have ingrained in them. These are not characters easily forgotten.
That first story earned a 5 – star rating and a multitude of fans. And now finally we get a sequel. The wait is almost over. So here is the schedule for Kendall McKenna’s guest blog and book contests. All you have to do is leave a comment at the end of each days blog, its that easy. So mark your calendars and join us for a 4 day celebration of Kendall McKenna’s The Tameness of the Wolf series and new book release.
