But near constant warfare, the wounding of what many to believe to be their God, and being reduced to one city when they used to have planets… Lord Stark sighed. I disliked all of the combat scenes in this book. The description of the fight — if you've read the book you know what I'm talking about, if not. The world building where it can be built anyway, since it was set kind of in our time, and our world was exquisite, and the spin she put to the overdone concept of werewolves was exquisite. I might love me some men in uniform, but I know shit all about the actual military :P Lieutenant Lucas Young knows as much about shifters, as I do about military procedure. Phewww, I definitely hit the jackpot with this series. There was hickey's and protective instincts.
While the Grafton illustrates a story of general cooperation, it wasn't long before issues began to arise, challenging Captain Musgrave's resourcefulness and leadership. I also liked the book as a whole, though there was some things that bothered me, but I decided to look away from most of it. He was such a dud, I wondered why Noah bothered submitting to him. I would've loved to see how much stronger their bond will become now that they'll finally be completely together. One that is also filled with hot military men!! The stranger seemed unworried about this, and laid the blade across his knees, one hand loosely on the hilt and the other on the blade.
But then I figured out that it's just Lucas who doesn't know shit, especially when they'd just had sex and he was about to flirt with Noah but he didn't because he was Noah's superior so he couldn't act like that. It had several slanted holes near the top, a large blue crystal embedded above the guard. Time for a cold shower. After making a stunning recovery, Raynal went on to construct a double-chambered forge and bellows which was instrumental in constructing the 'ship' used to self-rescue the Grafton's crew. It's not a flutter, fortune romance but a story of a slow-growing man-werewolf relationship. I enjoyed the combining of paranormal and contemporary military. So yeah, I'd recommend it to anyone who wants to read a different twist on werewolves and people who like military stories.
Five stars for the incredible primary research done by the author and others included in the text. Even if they become ill or injured, our commitment to them is a bond to our group, and our treatment of our weakest members reflects our true selves. I like Lucas, he is a fair leader, hot of course and definitely an alpha man. It was a harsh time of year in a harsh climate, and the crew was assaulted by gale force winds as they were forced to abandon ship. She tried her hand at vampire and cowboy fiction, winning high school poetry and short story contests along the way.
Great concept here and a rocking start to kickass military personnel both human and werewolf. It was also weird everyone was strangely cool with them being gay and openly very affectionate. The importance of this book and its companion volume, The Strength of the Wolf, cannot be overstated. She quickly rushed through the castle and out into the courtyard. Captain Musgrave nearly perished under the weight of Raynal when the rope was pulled into the waves below.
You may have the greatest bunch of individual stars in the world, but if they don't play together, the club won't be worth a dime. And why did I have to read, what felt like, 100 pages of them jacking each other off? The Guardian had a shard of the blade of the Hive's king, Oryx, which had been forged into his own sword, Bolt-Caster. A non-conventional relationship has kept her happy for the last decade. I would've loved to see how much stronger their bond will become now that they'll finally be completely together. The whole were-wolf culture was just this big open expanse that everyone just seemed content with letting the majority of the military leaders playing catch-up and guess. Lucas was quite naive to be honest and it his ignorance annoyed me more than once.
See, I know this book wasn't perfect, and I know it had certain things that bugged me sometimes. Again, sometimes it can be overdone, but not here. Now one might think that 85% of the sex in a book can't be just biting and licking--And they'd be wrong. The writing though, did save it a little. It was such a enthralling, captivating read, turning something as overused as 'werewolves' into what seemed to be a whole new world for me.
I should have read The Strength of the Pack a long time ago, as soon as it was released, I was missing out in a fantastic, terrific, wonderful story. The surviving crew were rescued by luck when a Spanish ship called Julian harbored near their encampment on the island for repairs with hopes of finding the Enderby's settlement the ruins of which Dalgarmo's group had found , which they incorrectly believed to be an active fishing village. This was my 1st Kendall McKenna and I will be reading book 2. I don't think I could read this series back to back. Hot, hot, but I had to wait for declarations of love and complete submission. I don't think I could read this ser 3.
So that fact that this book got me all hot and bothered over a freaking hand job???? Some of it was redundant and could easily have been edited out. He held a rope that was binding a rough looking man behind him. Once they join the group, they have to go to the clan tab when viewing the group page. Long scorch marks were all over the camp, all his men missing. This book was entirely too hot. But here's what I did love! It's just such a great line and really appropriate for this story as well. Because god, it was hot.
