This isn’t the life Cole dreamt of, but what choice does he have?

With his twenty-third birthday behind him, Cole Moreton now faces the shifter compatibility test which will decide his future. Testing positive means joining a pack and eventually taking the bite. Unfortunately, with enviable skills in self-defence and hand-to-hand combat, the kind of packs interested in him aren’t any he’d want to join.

Logan has been a member of the McKillan pack for most of his life. Pack is family and loyalty is everything, but when the shifter government turns out to be no better than the oppressive humans before them, he questions everything.

Right from their first meeting, Logan knows that a life with the McKillan pack isn’t right for Cole, but with his alpha taking a keen interest in Cole’s skills, Logan’s hands are tied. Mutual attraction builds between them, but acting on it is futile—helping Cole will put their lives at risk and an end to any future they could’ve had.


This was quite an extraordinary story. Not a ‘regular’ shifter story. It had a wonderful and original world-building and a strong plot.

The time has come, Cole has to do ‘the’ test. Hopefully, he will not be compatible, so he won’t have to leave his family and be forced to join a pack.
Cole has quite some martial arts and other skills and the feared McKillan pack wants him because he can be useful for their position as a pack.

Logan, a member of the McKillan pack, has to bring Cole the results of the test and what his pack wants from him. Cole is opposed to everything Logan has to say and is opposed to everything the pack stands for. Logan wants to give him time and is very patient. They talk and talk and Logan has to convince Cole of the fact this is his destiny. Cole feels an attraction towards Logan and can’t understand why Logan does what he does. 
Very unexpected Logan gives Cole an alternative and that is beyond what Cole could ever imagine.

This story had such surprising turns, I loved  that it was unpredictable and original.
The whole story had an amazing atmosphere, a combination of a shifter and human world. 
It had a good amount of angst, moments where I was afraid of the ending. Both Cole and Logan were friendly, intense, very lovable and mature.
The story was written in an enchanting, captivating manner and had a strong and steady pace. 
The buildup was incredibly done, it started small, kind and nice, with a little tension and the further in the story the more oppressive and the more dangerous it became. I was sitting on the edge of my seat and was anxious enough to bite my lip and stab my nails in my hand.
It was a story was wonderful, the whole scenery was excellent, the emotional and physical parts all with just the right tension. For me, this storyline could certainly be transformed into a movie, or maybe more a series, because it’s not the end, there will be more! I can’t wait!
