Author note: This is stand alone series that follows the daughter of Kai and Aurora from the Matefinder series twenty years in the future. It is not necessary to read the Matefinder series first.
What would you do if you found out your mate was dying?
Anya has inherited her mother’s gift. Born in a set of twins, she is the next Matefinder and her brother, Jaxon, is her sworn protector. But it looks like finding mates for the werewolf kind isn’t what Spirit has in plan for her. And when she starts dreaming about a human guy in trouble, her whole life changes. With the clock ticking on both of their lives, will Anya be able to do what needs to be done to survive?
With humans and werewolves on the brink of war, Anya finds herself right in the middle. When she has a terrifying vision, which her Shaman mentor says will come to pass, she stops at nothing to try and save everyone. Armed with new responsibilities, Anya is stalked by the Skin Walker who wants nothing more than to see her dead. But when her mate, Gavin, starts acting weird and closes down their mate bond, she’s afraid she will lose everything.
Facts first: This is a standalone series but if you want more of the background of some of the secondary characters then be sure to read Materfinders series which I just recently reviewed also. But is not totally necessary, reading this prior allows you to dive deep into Mt. Hood and the werewolf pack that the next generation stems from.
Anya is college-aged, prime age for the ideal young adult lead character if you ask me. While she should be preparing to go to college, she and her twin brother are unable to because their kind is on the brink of war with the human. The humans who 20 years prior were saved by the werewolves now are hunting them down to save themselves.
While I found the book to be a unique twist on the werewolf phenomena, the story seemed extra quick pace. If the action in the paranormal world is what you like then this series should be right up your alley.
I’m trying hard to write this review, not because I didn’t like the series but because I so desperately want to include back facts Matefinders. This series is essentially a spin-off. Some spin-offs flop and some exceed beyond. I think this one found the middle ground of just being a spin-off. It’s not bad, it’s not good ( it does lean more towards the good ), it just kinda floating there for me.
Poor Anya and Gavin they go got drug through it in this series. Them both being a mixed form of some paranormal familiarities. Struggling with the battle between humans and werewolves, while facing another battle between Walker and Keeper. Anya and Gavin are stuck in both. While the battle of humans and werewolves threatens Anya kind, the battle between Walker and Keeper threatens Anya mate. With the help of a Shaman name Nahuel, Anya and Gavin must contend with what they are willing to do and give up.
I enjoyed this series conclusion but it feels like the author may not be fully done with it as a few of the secondary characters lives didn’t seem to end in this book. Mainly the very last character introduces. Could Leia Stone have another book up her sleeve? Possibly but the character needs to reach out to her and demand their book be made. As Stone seems to have a strong pack of her own to support the series moving forward.
