Well, what an absolute shocker, this book was fantastic and just what I needed! It's animalistic and really brutal at times but there is also a really loving and tender relationship between Mace and Daniel starting to develop. Moving swiftly on to Revelations.

I kept checking the pages because I didn't want it to end. But end it did. It's pretty rough and different, a combination that instantly grips me and stubbornly won't let go.
If you like a little bite and a few blows with your furry lovers this just might be the thing. Looking forward to see how this is handled Apr 03, Didi rated it liked it Recommended to Didi by: Lada.

I think this is my first dystopian book. A short one, phew! When human had to butt head with beast, I - off course - cheer for the human side.
And so I applaud Daniel for his courage, smart mouth, and strength. Not to go dissing the pack side though, with such mighty Alpha like Mace. Their dynamics were unusual too, I wouldn't think a bigger, stronger beast like him allow a little human to I think this is my first dystopian book. Their dynamics were unusual too, I wouldn't think a bigger, stronger beast like him allow a little human to top him, but top Mace Daniel did. That alone was promising despite the circumstances they were in. I had a hunch as the series went, past personalities would reveal.

I think I lost some brain cells reading this. This is a LSD induced fantasy that someone may wish on their worst enemy. Not worth the money, not worth the time, and definitely not recommended. Jan 30, Don Bradshaw rated it really liked it Shelves: shifters , romance , sci-fi. Daniel is one of the few men unaffected when what is being called The Werewolf Syndrome hit and decimated humanity. He wanders accidentally into a powerful pack's territory and is quickly captured. The pack leader, Mace, takes a liking to the small man and tries to protect him while teaching Daniel how to live in a pack.
This is a past paced book with violent relationships and rough sex. This book is a good change of pace from the typical romance story and a good read. Sep 28, Steph rated it liked it Shelves: kindle-read. This was a great surprise. I don't usually read shorts like this, but I really enjoyed this one. I still have only rated three stars because it doesn't really compare to my favourite full length novels. However I still enjoyed this super-sexy and dark story. I will definitely be reading the next in the series. Thanks to Em for the fab recommendation :D.

He's hilarious, smart-mouthed, savvy, temperamental, proud, and utterly charming. This is a first novel in a series, so I really liked the wa Probably 3. This is a first novel in a series, so I really liked the way the worldbuilding went: our discoveries about the pack types were dropped in smoothly as Daniel acclimated to his new, er, home, and finds out that a lot of his assumptions about people infected with the post-apocalyptic wolfman thing weren't totally accurate.
A favorite trope of mine with post-apoc, often used well with zombies. It didn't feel info-dumpy at all, but I still feel like I had a grip on it. I dig the way they're not shifters, but more what comic book readers like me would think of as feral mutants like Wolverine, Sabertooth, etc. I also liked that all the action happens within a small camp space, and was limited to a very closeknit pack of characters.

It set things up for a larger world by letting us dip our toes in a little, first. Nicely done. But for all my rambling about worldbuilding, this is a really light, fun read -- mostly about sex, which has been set up very cleverly as integral to pack bonding and life. I'm never sure what I'm going to get out of human-sex-with-monsters books. I love the idea, but oftentimes it's just an excuse for unsexy power plays -- as in, real life abuse of power and position for dubcon purposes, which squicks me real hard.
Not so in this case; I was super impressed with the balance Black struck between the physical dominance of the pack and Daniel's human pride and relative inner strength.
The bedroom scenes were absolutely integral to our understanding of that balance and why it works, which to me is the point of erotic romance. What can I say, I like it violent, but responsibly so. As in, "Unless there's a safeword, the safeword is no. Glad I bought the second one already! Jan 06, Straysod rated it did not like it Shelves: m-m , romance , slavery , dnf. It kills me to quit on a book, especially when I'm this far in, but I just couldn't take anymore.
I read for fun, to relax, to meet new characters.
When I realized I had spent more than an hour just furious and pissed off, I had to give up. Maybe the author somehow comes up with some miraculous redeeming save at the end of the book, but I am not willing to read one more infuriating victim-blaming sentence just to get there. I wanted to like this book, I really did. I love an MC that can't keep his mouth shut even when he knows he should. The dark world and post-apocalyptic setting had so much potential. And I don't typically have too much trouble with a little submission in a shifter story.
But damn, this book was just so damn rape-y! The entire theme seemed to be "if you say yes, then it must not have been rape. If the mind says no, I don't care what the body is doing, it's still rape. If you submit and say yes because your only other option is being beaten to death, it's still rape. This book takes victim-blaming to a whole new level. Every time the MC gets hurt, it's his fault for 'resisting'.
I can't stand that kind of bullshit attitude. Even with an interesting world, and decent writing, the victim-blaming and "it's not rape, it's a way of life" attitude has pissed me off to the point that not only will I never finish this book, I will probably never even look at another book by this author.

This had a lot of thing I normally like in a story and it's failed at making them interesting. Too much of beating how can Daniel be alive after all that? I put the tag: species-anthropomorphic. It's not a shifter werewolf story. Oct 02, V rated it it was amazing. Violent and Gory.. Why I didn't read this series sooner? Violent and Gory?? I'm so glad I gave this series a chance.

It is refreshingly stark and very focused on the power imbalance between the "beasts" and humans, as well as within the pack ranks itself. It is animalistic and pretty raw. I'm really looking forward to reading the rest of the series! I had a great time reading this book. Sure, it had quite a bit of violence and definite dubious consent. It was fast and full of action though. The thing I liked most about the book was Daniel. He was such a strong character. I loved that he didn't have a problem standing up to the wolves - even when he knew he was going to get hurt doing so.
I also loved how interesting the whole plot was. The fact that you have a virus that makes people become feral wolves or kills them makes for a good story. I get excited thinking about what is yet to come.source site

It's bad, like really bad, one of the worst I have ever read! I only finished because it was a very short read. I thoroughly enjoyed this work. Brannan Black has created an intriguing world and rich characters that I wouldn't mind seeing more of. Pulling you in right from the start and keeping you entertained all the way to the end.
It's amazingly well written with a lot of action and Alpha sex. The dialogue alone is enough to keep readers coming back for more. As an added bonus, the sexual chemistry between the characters is sizzling. You'll laugh and cry with this one and still be wanting more. I just love it.
I do hope we get more. Brannan Black keeps the reader glued to the edge of their seat with this latest installment and I was hard pressed to put it down.

Attractive: Girlfriends, including Lucy, whom he dated for six years, and Hilda, say he is 'noble' and 'affectionate'. Of the teasing, Gomez said: 'I don't take it seriously. I know who I am inside. He insisted that he's a normal guy.
I am the same as everybody, except what you see on my face, that's all. Gomez still works in the circus, performing daredevil feats on the trapeze and trampoline. No change: Gomez said he has no interest in shaving or cutting his hair - bar the odd trim at the barbershop. Cruel: But Gomez and his friends have admitted he is regularly taunted by strangers who howl at him.

Geneticist Dr. Luis Figuera, an expert in hypertrichosis, has studied people with the condition for more than 20 years. Figuera has collected blood samples from Danny's family to map the hypertrichosis gene. Proud: Gomez said he has no desire to shave his face as people would not recognise him.
He believes that as humans evolved, certain genes that were no longer required for survival were turned off. But Figuera thinks that the gene for hypertrichosis was somehow accidentally turned back on in Gomez's family - in which 20 people, both men and women are affected. Aside from the odd trim, Gomez has not changed his hair, even though he could easily shave it. Imagine if I changed my face — who would know who I am?
