Blog Tour and Review: An Alpha's Choice

The Bestselling Redwood Pack continues with the Talon Pack series.

A Broken Wolf. A Fractured Bond. A Fate Denied.

Brynn Brentwood has spent the whole of her life protecting the Talon Pack through terrors only she will ever know. She’s never asked for more in life other than to live to take her next breath and to ensure her family is safe. Regardless of her selfless wishes and the atrocities the former Alpha committed, she has always known that fate would provide for her as it had countless others. Fate is what has carried her through with one exception—upon meeting the one wolf who could be hers, he doesn’t feel their bond.

Finn Jamenson has been broken more than once, left beaten and half dead—and that was before he was an adult and Heir of the Redwood Pack. When called upon to work with their allies, the Talons, he finds himself intrigued with a woman who his wolf doesn’t claim as his own. Though he knows there could be something there, he refuses to tempt himself with a wolf who could never be his when his own mate could waiting for him.

The world changed in a blink of time and now the two wolves must fight as one—ignoring the burning temptation between them—when their people are threatened. With one wrong move, their homes could be destroyed and its up to Finn and Brynn to save them all…if only they could save themselves.

This is book 2 in the Talon Pack series by Carrie Ann Ryan.  The Talon Pack is in alliance with the Redwood Pack from her previous series and the timeline has jumped ahead so that all the little cubs from the previous series are now adults and finding their own mates.

This is Finn’s story.  Finn was gravely injured as a toddler when a Demon made it into their den and broke every bone in Finn’s body.  He was healed, but things have not been easy for him as he has grown. He is the Heir to the Redwood Pack.

As the Pack’s face new danger, they need to work together to show humans they are not a danger.  That means Finn has to work with the Princess of the Talon’s, Brynn Brentwood.  Brynn is an Alpha female and very powerful in her own right.  Her wolf recognizes Finn as her mate.  Finn as no idea.

This is not just another HEA story.  It is a slow relationship build.  Finn has some deep issues to overcome.  Brynn’s heart is breaking every time she sees Finn.  I found myself tearing up because of the great love of family, duty to pack, and the promise of forever love.  Carrie Ann can steep some great emotions in her words.  As a reader, I could feel the anguish everyone was feeling in this story.  I like that the theme of healing and strength resounds in the story.  Without the love of the Packs and the strength of family, these two mates would continue to struggle. 

There is a lot more mystery and suspense to come in this world of wolves coming out to humans.  I look forward to seeing the rest of the “kids’ find their HEA’s.  I’m a stickler for book order so I recommend starting with the Redwood series and reading forward.  You could read this as a stand-alone if you want.  The author does a great job bringing the reader up to speed. 

*I received and ARC of this title from the author for an honest review.

New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan never thought she’d be a writer. Not really. No, she loved math and science and even went on to graduate school in chemistry. Yes, she read as a kid and devoured teen fiction and Harry Potter, but it wasn’t until someone handed her a romance book in her late teens that she realized that there was something out there just for her. When another author suggested she use the voices in her head for good and not evil, The Redwood Pack and all her other stories were born.
Carrie Ann is a bestselling author of over twenty novels and novellas and has so much more on her mind (and on her spreadsheets *grins*) that she isn’t planning on giving up her dream anytime soon.
