A very intriguing start to this new M/M series by Michelle Frost.
It's a world reinvented where the supernatural came out of the closet and humans clawed back some semblance of order but where there are still great swaths of the country are still controlled by supernatural elements, including the center of the country which is now known as The Between.
Deckard Warren is the chief enforcer for the Ironheld Wolves, and they guard their territory, humans and supernats alike, fiercely. One night on patrol along the border of their territory a terrified young man stumbles across the line into their area. The young man is without a doubt Deck's mate. But he doesn't remember anything beyond jumping into Deck's arms and every time he does try to remember a black cloud of panic descends. Deck calls him Colt.
As Colt and Deck try to solve the mystery of his past, Deckard brings Colt more and more into his family, his pack. But there are elements raging against them. Some wolves look down on humans as inferior and right now there's a human leading the pack - Deck's brother in law, Gavin. His sister, Isobel, had been alpha but she'd been killed a year ago and Deck was still full of rage and grief over it. And now he has to contend with the fact that once his mate regains his memories he may lose Colt too.
And there is something dark and evil lurking in Colt's past. But what will it mean for Deckard and the Ironheld Wolves?
The world that Michelle is building is amazing. Her writing is clean and crisp and draws you in. I'm really looking forward to book 2. View all my reviews
