It’s been months since anyone at the Committee has had any contact from the O’Connell family or their pack members, and they are not happy. Suspicious of the activities that took place in D.C. and determined to find out what the wolves are up to, the Committee recruits one of their newest residents, Doctor Matthew Dietrich, to play the part of neighbor and infiltrate the family.
Matthew has always been a keep-to-himself kind of person. Though idealistic and optimistic, he prefers to work in solitude, at night, while he researches the findings that he hopes will one day change the world. When he’s approached by the executives of the Center, he has no idea why they’d choose him. And to say he is skeptical over the concept of men that can shift into wolves would be an understatement. Until he meets his new partner, the man that will play the part of his “husband” in the Committee’s scheme, Doctor Gavin Strauss.
While it took me a little bit to get into the novel, I really enjoyed it in the end.
Mathew was a difficult character for me to like at first, and Gavin had a slightly malevolent air about him, but I found both characters redeemed themselves. There were some relationship building and sweet moments among the tension of spying on the O’Connells and threat from the vampires.
Although I felt the children acted a little beyond their ages, I was entertained by their antics. We are reunited with all the characters from the previous two novels, which I was glad for. We are also exposed, yet again, to the gruesomeness of the wolves shifting. It certainly added to the macabre tone.
I really liked that this is definitely not the last book in the series. I am looking forward to more of these characters. Fans of the series will enjoy it. If you haven’t read the first two yet, you must read this series in order. I suggest you do so, it is a good version of werewolves and vampires!
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
