Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
Marcus Flint has recently been named Alpha of one of the largest werewolf packs. How long will they allow a crippled human to lead them, let alone keep his three werewolf mates?
Three weeks have passed since the Claiming Ceremony gone wrong. Hunter is in prison below the Supreme Alphas’ pack house. Nate is still clinging to his mates and having problems dealing with his wolf. Kellan feels that he is odd man out in the mating and isn’t feeling well, which is unusual for a werewolf. Marcus still cannot believe that the Jefferson pack picked a disabled human to lead them. However, he must attend to the needs of his mates before he can really focus on the pack.
The pack however is growing restless as their Alpha has basically not been seen in three weeks. While he attends meetings with the pack leadership and the Supreme Alphas, he has not left the pack house. When he finally starts to delve into pack business, he sees what terrible shape the pack has been in the last few years. And with the pack growing as they are closest to Orion’s Circle, the problems are just going to increase.
When the pack doctor notices the pain the Marcus is in, he suggest that he apply to a program that a friend of his knows about. It would involve robotic prostheses that would allow Marcus to run with the pack during the full moon. When he visits Dr. Seth about the program, he learns that he must spend six months in Germany for the procedure as it is not yet approved in America. Can he afford to leave his pack and more importantly his mates for such a long time in order to be a more effective leader and lover for them?
This fifth novel in the Sirius Wolves series brings us another step closer to the upcoming war between the gods that has been foreshadowed. Anubis finally makes his presence known, which unsettles Blaze, the Supreme Alpha. Marcus is still wallowing in self doubt wondering if he is really meant to lead 2300 werewolves and growing. Ricoh is dealing with Hunter’s betrayal and his feelings of guilt about Nate. Nate is slowly recovering but still relies on Marcus and Kellan for the most part for strength. Young hybrid Chris, whose white wolf is unheard of, seems to be the key to the reason why this battle is coming. The book has a few surprises which I will let you discover for yourself. As usual, I am looking forward to the next book.
The cover art by E Connors is typical for the series. It has a shirtless well build man in front of a starry night background. Again, I wish I could figure out which character it is suppose to be.
