In this story, a girl named Kayin is all set to become head of her pack and become the alpha female. In taking this role, she will be the one to bring peace to her people- to end a war between the Gifted and the Eldon. Once she is the alpha female things do not go as she thought they would. One of the things she finds out is that she is to be mated to the alpha male, Abbos. Kayin had no idea she would be forced to take a mate and is not happy about it. In addition, things start happening, such as dreams and visions and she is not sure what is real and what is not. She also meets Luke, a former member of the pack and he asks to re-enter the pack. But things with him are not as they seem. Is he really good or bad? And what about Abbos- does he really care for Kayin or does he have ulterior motives? And should Kayin do what is best for her people or follow her heart? These are all questions that come up in this wonderful story.
I really enjoyed this story. It is very entertaining, has a lot of action and has great characters. There is a love triangle happening since both Abbos and Luke have feelings for Kayin. It makes the reader wonder who Kayin will choose. My only criticism of this book is that it needs a lot of editing. There are many places where punctuation is missing or wrong and there are misspelled words. In addition, the point of view of who is speaking keeps changing without warning, so it is often confusing who is speaking. I think if these edits were made, it would make the book easier to understand. The ending leaves you hanging so I am curious to see what happens in book 2. The story is enjoyable and I recommend it.
