My Review: July 25, 2013 ~ Review Copies ~
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
First, I would like to thank the author Stacey Mantle for giving me this book for an honest review. I really enjoyed the storyline the characters were well written. The book has characters you can relate to, they have their flaws but are still likable. The main character is Alexandra Wilde, she is a shepherd. She has the ability to talk to animals and weres in their head and even control them if needed. The book differs from most were/shifter books with the fact instead of one species like wolf, her pack has different species, coyotes, hawks, horses cat and even a vampire. I look forward to reading more.
