Blurb:

Blaze, the most powerful werewolf on the planet has found his omega, Aden. Together with Conner and Darric they finally become true mates, fulfilling an ancient prophecy by the goddess Sirius and forming Orion’s Circle. The battle against the terrorist group, the Winter Circle, has begun.

Blaze, however, is fighting his own battle. Aden is due to birth a child, and despite Blaze’s six hundred years of being an Alpha, nothing has prepared him for his hardest challenge yet — how to become a father. His struggles are hurting the people he loves the most and threatening their bond.

The madman who kidnapped and tortured Aden still hasn’t been caught, and when the worst happens and their circle is broken, Blaze has to fight his biggest threat yet – his own inner weakness – an enemy against which his Alpha strength will be useless. Blaze has to learn that true strength is only found in forgiveness, and sometimes the most powerful weapon is love.

My View:

I think I said in my review for book 1 that it I was taken by surprise. This book also took me by surprise but for very different reasons and like the title implies I feel a little bit broken. Really I should have looked at the title and run away quickly!

I’m honestly not sure about the way the story unfolded. The books you pick up and are looking forward to that leave you sobbing are always the hardest to get over and put how you feel into words.

Broken Circle starts up a few months on from Orion’s Circle and Aden is in labour. Darric and Connor are right there offering support but Blaze feels like an outsider unsure of what to do or how to help. This story revolves more around Blaze than the other three and focuses on how he can’t get past his feelings that he has constantly let Aden down. Blaze turns inward on himself and runs away frequently turning his thoughts off so no one realises the depth of his despair.

Work continues to bring together humans and werewolves but there is a traitor in the midst and it is looking more and more likely to be someone close to Blaze and his men.

The crazy doctor from Aden’s old pack is still running around plotting and until he is found no one will be safe. Nobody could possibly know the consequences of him catching Blaze and how that moment will change everyone’s future.

As I said at the start I’m still not sure how I feel about the ending. This is a well written book and the world building continues on from Book 1. The plot twist has totally blindsided me. Where does that leave that prophecy which spoke clearly of who was involved? I feel like I want to stamp my feet and say NO!!

I may even have to start a petition to Sirius asking her to do something crazy like return the status quo in book 3!!
