Noah has lived in isolation most of his life. He’s a demon, and demons keep to themselves. He’s not satisfied with his life, though. One night he sneaks out and meets Duncan. He likes the man, but he knows he can’t be with him because it would mean losing everything.
Duncan knows what he wants, and he wants Noah. He doesn’t care—much—about his homophobic parents’ reaction. He knows he has the support of his friends and most of the pack, and that’s enough for him. Will it be enough for Noah, though?
As Noah and Duncan get to know each other, Noah has to make a decision—his parents, or his mate? Choosing his parents means he’ll have to marry a woman and have children, even if he’s gay. Choosing Duncan means he’ll lose everything he’s ever known. Or not?
With Noah, we visit the wolves (and other species) of the Gillham pack. It is Noah’s first visit, but not ours. Actually, this story represents Noah’s first encounter with shifters in general.
Having been brought up believing one thing, he is thrown for a loop when he feels a connection with a “human” while out at a club one night. Come to find out that “human” is not only a shifter, but his fated mate.
Many of the plot elements are similar to others seen in the Whitedell and Gillham series. The new and different element is the introduction of the Demon, and with it the demon “family” and city. This introduction opens a number of potential future plot elements.
There is also a little thing that niggled, which I see possibly reappearing soon, Noah’s family is in pharmaceutical research. This fact is mentioned, but not explored in this particular installment. However, I see it is possibly significant given that the early installments in Whitedell and Gillham all involved the Glass Research company in some way.
I was a tad disappointed that we never got to see Duncan take his wolf form in this story. We never got to see the wolf and demon interact; that is something I would truly love to see, especially given what Noah was brought up to believe regarding shifters.
Another solid addition to this world, and a good escape from some of the heavier stories I have been reading.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
