The Delight

Getting to see Nick again after how the last book ended was a plus! Throw him up against a vampire princess, then let the good times roll…along with some action packed bad times. A shifter and a vampire…oh my!

While Sophia Rose has read this series all out of order *snickers* I have stayed true to the course and kept it all in line.  Those new to the Alpha Pack may find some of it confusing, but for the most part each story is it’s own with a fore telling of the next book in the series.

In the last story, an old foe has come back to haunt Nick, the Alpha Pack leader. While Nick has been in each story, we really don’t know much about his past. He was thrown out of his pack by his brother for trying to change the future, which he can see at the most inopportune times. His soul is tortured by what he has done, so he makes it a point to never interfere with what his visions tell him. Finding a home and family with the Alpha pack has only partially filled the hole in his heart. At the end of the last story, we believe his enemy is dead, but not before he tortured Nick in ways that haunt him. He’s not in a good place and has suicide on his mind.

Then Nick meets Calla, a vampire princess. She too knows loss of a mate, but is strong and patient. When these two meet, it is explosively seductive. They can’t keep their hands off each other. But an outside threat they thought they had dealt with has come back to haunt, and torture them once again. Calla senses that Nick is her mate, but hides the signs from Nick as she knows he needs time to come to terms with what is going on. Calla is no wilting flower. Her inner strength helps hold Nick up and he recognizes she could be the one that truly heals him.

I throughly enjoyed seeing Nick become the sensitive caring man I knew he was deep down. Alpha to the core, he wants what is best for everyone, but also struggles to deal with is own pain. Calla has so much beauty and strength that she holds up Nick as he struggles. She isn’t young, so she has a lot of life experience and wisdom to offer to this relationship.

We also get to see his relationship with his daughter, Selene, grow into more of a loving father/daughter experience. Hammer, the silent warrior, comes more to the front and actually has things to say. Throw in a possible M/M relationship coming for two more characters in the future, this book was a jam packed and never let you rest.

Just when you think they have evil under control, someone new raises their head up to be noticed. Never let it be said the Alpha Pack doesn’t earn their keep. I love this series and Wolf’s Fall is another great addition with love, action, and friendship leading the way.

The following two tabs change content below.
Shari is the Delighted Reader. Married to her Prince Charming and mother to two Princesses and one Prince. When she is not slaving away as Cinderella she loves to get lost in the pages of a good book. Never without a reading device and a few good paperback books, because she never knows when she might get 5 minutes to read!
  • Ah, JD Tyler, the author I always think is JD Robb lol ! Now I know she’s not, but I hear her books are good, I’ll look them up. Great review 😉

    • Shari Delighted Read

      It’s a good series to start off on. Quick reads. I can see the confusion. I haven’t read anything of JD Robb yet.

  • Melanie Simmons

    I’ve really enjoyed this series. I loved seeing Calla, who is no warrior, stand up and show that she is willing to do what it takes to fight for her people and her mate. I did miss many of the secondary characters from the compound who had almost no role in this book. We did get to see the fae prince. 🙂

    • Shari Delighted Read

      I totally get not seeing the secondary characters. I think she was branching out to keep the series going once they get through all the shifters in the group. Calla is a strong woman and I adored seeing a feminine side that didn’t back down but wasn’t afraid to be a woman either.

  • Well now this is a series that I need to read. Vampires and shifters? Two of my favorite things.

    • Shari Delighted Read

      The first books in the series are all shifters with one necromancer/wizard/shifter. This is the first where a shifter and vampire mated. Still love the series!

  • Hey now! Haha! You got me there. I really don’t plan these little out of order excursions.

    Oh, but this was such a great story. I was so glad b/c Nick was always a favorite character and after last book when his suffering was so hard to read, I just wanted him to have some happy. And the hints of what is to come are great.

    • Shari Delighted Read

      Yep, I had to tease you about going out of order and knowing things before I did about the series!

      I loved the strong characters be true to their gender but also willing to fight for what they want. I can’t wait for the next book in the series.

      • The character that has me the most curious is that mysterious bad guy that survived, but those other storylines are right up there too.
        Calla is exactly what you say strong, but true to character too.

        • Shari Delighted Read

          Jinn? He intrigues me. He’s going to cause such heartache, but I hope she has a twist not to do that to me.

          • Yes, Jinn! I couldn’t make up my mind about him so I want more. A twist would be great since he’s involved in that bit of trouble with the two guys.

  • lols @ snitching on Sophia, lmbo! I’m going to have to check this series outs. Love the review Shari!

    • What a tease she is, right? Its a good series, Sharonda. I love all the paranormals and gov’t conspiracy stuff she puts in.

      • Shari Delighted Read

        Now to find something else to tease you about 🙂

        • Be careful! I’ll get you back. Haha!

          • Shari Delighted Read

            Fighting words!

    • Shari Delighted Read

      Thanks Sharonda! I love teasing Sophia. It’s a great series!

  • HAHA love the teasing. loved your review…most of the time I read series out of order, but somehow I got lucky enough to read this series in order. I will say that this one just might be my favorite book of the series.

    • Shari Delighted Read

      It happens to me a lot getting the wrong book, but this time I nailed it and I couldn’t help teasing Sophia on this one.

      Each book becomes my favorite in the series. She keep outdoing herself!

  • LOL I was like Sophia and totally made a blunder of reading these in order. I really enjoyed Nick and seeing his struggle. Such a great hero. Glad to see you enjoyed it Shari.

    • Haha, yes! We’ll get caught up eventually. I think I just need to finish 2,3 and 4 and I’ve already got book 2. Nick is a great hero and my favorite of the ones I’ve read so far.
