Review: The Second and His Bonded (Kincaid Pack #2) by Kiki Clark

Rating: 4🌈

Kiki Clark continues the saga of a blended shifter pack struggling to survive against a unknown powerful enemy continues with The Second and His Bonded.

With each new installment, the author adds a new layer to the ongoing arc mystery, deepening the suspense and danger to the growing Kincaid pack, especially as more seem to be heading towards the pack as sanctuary.

The McAlllistairs were proven to be enemies. How much is revealed here. But Kieran, a son, also pulls back the abusive nature of his father’s rule as Alpha.

The story is as much about Kieran’s dealing with his own personal history as a McAllistair, his feelings of being an outsider in a new pack, and a survivor of abuse.

That along with a Tiger shifter who’s certain Kieran’s his mate but uncertain that tigers are even capable of a mate bond that wolves have.

Lots of complications here to go with the arc storylines and dramatic events to move everything forward.

It’s fast paced, exciting, and the characters easy to connect with. I read right through and was ready for the next book in the series.

The mystery has me hooked!

Definitely a recommendation from me.

The Second and His Bonded (Kincaid Pack Book 2)

Synopsis:

As the son of an enemy, Kieran never expected to find a family with the Kincaid Pack… or a true mate’s bond.

After barely escaping his abusive family, wolf shifter Kieran McAllister struggles to find his place in the Kincaid Pack. Especially with the pushy but gorgeous second-in-command showing up every time Kieran turns around… and making him want things he shouldn’t.

The traumatized wolf who continuously refuses Bennett Young’s help has begun to haunt his dreams. But if there’s one thing he knows, it’s that tiger shifters don’t have mates. So why can’t Bennett get Kieran’s sad eyes out of his head?

Despite their differences, Kieran and Bennet find something they never expected in each other. Just as their bond begins to grow though, Kieran’s past threatens to destroy the very pack they both have been fighting to protect.

The Second and His Bonded is the second book in the Kincaid Pack series and features an overprotective tiger, a touch-starved wolf, lots of purring, an excessive amount of sunbathing, and a happily ever after.

From the arrival of Ruby-throated Hummingbirds in the Spring to the first call of the Snow Geese heading south in the Fall, I am entranced by the seasons. For more about me see my bio on my blog.
