Dillan’s voice is like an echo in my head. “I just wanted to stop by and make sure you were still ok with this?” I detect something in his tone− fear, anxiety, anticipation.
She tells him she is fine and asks him to come inside. She is nervous, excited.
“No, I can’t stay. I have to get back to the brew house. I just wanted to, I don’t know. See you.”
I hop down and run, I can’t hear anymore. I don’t want to feel the tension between them. The sexual tension. I run to our cabin and phase back to human. I run up the steps and slam the door shut just as I hear Dillan’s snowmobile pass by. The hum of the engine fades as he heads back to the brew house. He didn’t even stop to see me. He drove back to camp for her. He’s probably counting the minutes until I leave. Another great idea, Kalysia. Leave camp so he can screw Cassie in peace. He’ll probably make love to her in our cabin. He’ll probably feed her chocolates and lick wine from her skin, in my bed. He’ll ruin the sheets. Ruin everything.She can have him, those two deserve each other. Following their parent’s orders like sheep. They may be brainwashed morons, but I’m the fool that didn’t see they were setting me up all along. I thought Dillan was doing this for our future. I was wrong. And now I can’t stop him. If he doesn’t do it, his father will disown him. I definitely can’t condone it. Not now that I know he wants her. He’s probably always wanted her for years. Long before either one of them knew my name. She is probably his real match, his true soulmate. I don’t belong here. I never did. All I can do now is leave.

UNITED INDIE BOOK BLOG REVIEW
This book is about a young woman who knows that she is the child of an “original” shifter. When she is 18 she and her mother leave the only home Kalysia has known to attend the Lunam Ceremony. Once she arrives, she meets her father and discovers the truth. She in fact will be the female head of the new pack. She will also find out who she will be with for the rest of her life. Once the ceremony has happened, the new pack moves to their camp and start their business. Kalysia has been mated to Dillan, also an original and now male head of the new pack. The entire pack moves to their new place and life begins for all of them. Kalysia is happy for a while, but then she realizes, she doesn’t really believe in love at first sight and really wants to live outside of the pack. Will Kalysia be able to put the thoughts of going to college aside and learn to live in the pack and love Dillan? The reason for the 4 stars is at times it dragged. I had trouble getting into the book, it started off pretty slow. I also couldn’t really get into some of the characters or side plots. I understand that this is the first book in a series and everyone was being introduced, but for me it was a bit much. Reviewed by Cryssy
