War is looming, and as the alpha, it falls to Dante to protect his shifter pack from the hybrid creatures spawned to prey upon them. To that end he joins forces with the Nephilim Odin in the hopes of keeping both their people safe, though past slights and animosity between the clans continue to cause strain. Attacks on the packs and Nephilim clans increase, and the seemingly endless army of hybrids will not stop growing. Dante knows their only chance to put an end to the carnage is to find the nest where his twin August and August’s mistress are creating the hybrids.

With entire cities being destroyed, Dante must call upon the pack weave to find the people who have been captured—and the nest. Dante and Odin gather an army for an all-out attack. Though a desperate and risky move, Dante has been backed into a corner and he sees no other alternative. It’s a battle they must win at any price, because the cost of losing will be catastrophic.

My View:

It’s been four days since I read this book and I am still no clearer on what I can, should or actually want to say.

Cutting Ties started out slowly and I found it a bit hard getting back into the story, however that didn’t last too long and this was one of those books that I really, really didn’t want to finish. There is no conclusion to the story here and the ending is brutal. I really mean that – it’s not a cliffhanger per se but it is BRUTAL!

I’m fascinated by the weave and the way Dante uses it within his pack. This is just as gruesome as book one and the hybrids are certainly more organised and able to cause more devastation. There is an uneasy agreement to work with the Nephilim but it seems whatever the group decides to do the August and his mistress have already thought a few steps ahead. The future is looking pretty bleak as the attacks on humans and the packs intensify and I hope the next book in the series isn’t too far away. CM Torrens has created a fascinating world and I am eager to know where Dante’s journey will take him next.
