Book Blurb

According to legend, when humankind is at its most desperate, the goddess Sirius will send three of the most powerful werewolf shifters ever created to save mankind. However, because they are so powerful, they will need a fourth to complete them, to calm them and help them reach their full potential.

Aden, a young were, has been his pack's omega ever since, at the age of fifteen, he didn't shift like everyone else. Caught, reviled, and tortured because of his empathic abilities, he knew on the night he was told to run as sport for the pack hunters that it would end in his death. What he didn't know, however, was that on the same night he'd also meet the love of his life and a pathway to answers, because Aden is far more than just a pack omega.

What begins as a hunt soon becomes a new adventure as Aden discovers that he has not only one, but three destined mates, and his role as lover is far more than trivial. The fate of all humankind rests upon it.



First Edition published by Dark Hollows Press, June 2015.


Book Review

"He hung his tired head. He was done, he couldn’t fight anymore. Months of imprisonment, starvation, and torture for the Alpha’s amusement had all led to this moment—the Ceremonial Hunt to mark the acceptance of a new alpha was to the death—his death."

Nothing, and I mean nothing, puts my hackles up faster and makes me madder than seeing someone abused, tortured, hated, because of who they are. Aden won me over right from the start, and my happiness when Blaze, Darric, and Conner saved him, probably exceeded Aden's own. Then to be thrust into the author's world building, learning how wolves have lost their way and strayed from the old traditions, and understanding who Sirius is and Aden's role in Orion's Circle, was fascinating.

“An Alpha triad can only form Orion’s circle when they have the fourth. That fourth has to be special, something unheard of in this world. It is you, Aden, you are Psi. You are our fourth.”

Poor Aden. His whole life, after fifteen when he didn't shift, has been a lesson in pain and humility. His pack claimed he was an omega, and his job was to take on their negative emotions in order to bring peace to them. Now, three of the most gorgeous men he's ever seen, and the largest wolves imaginable, are telling him he's not just an omega, he's Psi, he's their mate, and he's to help complete the circle to save mankind. My head would have been reeling, also. Being a part of the North American ruling council for all werewolves is a bit to take in when Aden has spent his whole life being told he was worthless.

I wanted to kill the alpha and members of Aden's former pack. What they did to him was more than horrific, it was barbaric, and it literally made me want to kill them all. Beyond the physical pain was the emotional and mental anguish that Aden, Blaze, Conner, and Darric suffered due to the pack’s actions. Although, these four men managed to create many of their own misconceptions and misunderstandings to the point I worried they'd complete the mate bond at all.

What an incredible beginning to a series! There's so much more going on in this world than just these four men, that I was captivated throughout. There are political machinations with the humans who know of their existence, and disturbing discoveries revolving around Aden's former pack alpha and doctor. Thank you to my good friend who dangled these books in front of me, and told me to hurry up.
