Blurb: From the bestselling author of Blue Bloods, comes a series that will reinvent the myth of the werewolf in the same way that Blue Bloods did with vampires—with style and NYC flair!
Lawson and his brothers escaped from the underworld and now lead desperate, dangerous lives. They’re pursued by the Hounds of Hell from one town to the next, never calling any place home. But when the hounds finally catch up with them and capture the girl Lawson loves, the hunters become the hunted. Lawson will stop at nothing to track down the hounds, even if the chances of saving Tala are slim…
The only hope he has lies in Bliss Llewellyn. Bliss, too, has lost someone to the beasts and will do anything to get them back—even if it means joining forces with the insolent, dangerously good-looking boy with a wolf’s soul.
All I need is yet another book boyfriend. Lawson is the newest add to the ranks.
Most of the story follows Lawson and his pack. They escaped from Hell determined to stay wolves, and not be turned into Hounds. Bliss has been given the task of finding the Hounds and getting them to help the blue bloods in the final battle. She mistakes Lawson and his pack for Hounds, but quickly becomes friends with them.
While searching for Tala, the girl Lawson loves, they figure out that Lucifer has plans that will change history. Together they do the best they can to stop Romulus, Lucifer’s commanding Hound, and the person that is supposed to rewrite history.
The storyline was fast paced. It’s a very short book, and took me about 3 1/2 hours to read. Once I started, I couldn’t stop. Lawson is a strong character. He tries to make decisions that will keep his pack safe. His only flaw is being ruled by his emotions when it comes to Tala. I’ve missed Bliss in the Blue Bloods series. She’s one of my favorite characters because of all she has overcome. She’s no longer meek and afraid to speak up. She has a take charge attitude now. Without her, the wolves can’t stop Romulus. But she must determine if she can trust them not to freak out about the truth of her parentage.
I was stoked when I received this pretty. I can’t wait to see how this group of wolves help Schuyler in Gates of Paradise.
