Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars
Marcus Flint enjoys his job as the US government’s Lupine Liaison Officer. He has been working closely with Blaze, the Supreme Alpha werewolf and his mates to deal with the Winter Circle terrorist organization that is trying to keep weres and humans apart. He admires some the characteristics of his werewolf friends like their lifetime mating and the fact that they are very tactile. Being a double amputee from the last war, Marcus believes that he will never have that, as his former lover Justin rejected him after he came home from overseas.
Kellan believes he is lupus non gratis around his pack. He was forced to help the psychopath Michael with his schemes because his mate was being threatened. Most of the wolves of the Jefferson pack cannot forgive him. Only those of Orion’s Circle seem to understand the pressure he was under to protect his mate. When it is revealed that his mate is Marcus, the human, most wolves do not believe that it is possible.
Ricoh meanwhile is having problems with his mates. Hunter, the Jefferson pack alpha, continues to ignore him. Nate is still missing after fleeing when his life is spared for killing Darric. And as he begins to be around Marcus, he is developing feeling for that man too. He does not understand how this could be as he already has his mates, or so he thought. When Nate shows up with an anti-werewolf minister looking thin and tired, the group knows that something is terribly wrong. As the group plans a rescue, Hunter goes and tries to talk to Nate, making him shut down further. The group must now recalculate their plans to save Nate while somehow not alienate the human population any further than the anti-were agitators have already done.
This fourth book in the Sirius Wolves series continues the integration of humans and werewolves that started in the previous books. Orion’s Circle (Aden, Blaze, Conner, and Darric) take more of supporting roles as Marcus, Ricoh, Nate, and Kellan drive this story. We also begin to see that not all wolves are behind the ruling council. Nate is obviously been tortured to the point where he is suffering a bit of Stockholm syndrome. Marcus thinks no one can care for him because of his physical appearance. Ricoh believes that both of his mates of basically rejected him while Kellan has been rejected by his own pack for the most part. The ending of the book takes a unique twist in the furthering of the goals of Orion’s Circle. As usual, I cannot wait to read the next in the series.
The cover by E Connors is fairly standard for the series. A well built shirtless man in jeans is set in front of a starry night sky. However, I’m not sure which character he is suppose to be though.
