Fantastic Twist to this story line!
I really loved this book. It was so different from everything out there on the market today and, on top of that, it was completely entertaining. Harry is a lone wolf. He has no desire to become part of a pack after an incredibly horrible pack event ended in the death of his mother when he was ten. But he is still a wolf, and as such, he is drawn to people. As a result, he has formed a small group of friends in town with the towns elderly women. He plays bunco with them, goes to movie nights with them, etc. What he doesn't realize is that the elderly facades are disguising the town's coven...who are actually young and attractive women. When the town pack tries to force him into being part of the pack, the truth starts to come out.
June has been friends with Harry for eight years...in fact, they have been best friends. But she has been hiding under the 80 year old facade of Sandie who runs the local tea shop. When she realizes what is happening with the local pack and what they are trying to force Harry into, she knows that it's time for June, her real, young, attractive persona to come out and work to save him. She's a witch, although he has no idea, even though she has known that he is a werewolf throughout their entire friendship.
There is a whole new world here that I simply loved. Within the Covens and the Packs are a TON of politics. Ultimately, it is all to help maintain their anonymity, but that doesn't mean that the Covens and Packs understand or want to understand and work together, which leaves Harry and June smack dab in the middle of a HUGE mess. I really liked how all of this was handled in the book. It's complex, but was never confusing. There is also a huge cast of characters, but they were so much fun within the small town setting.
For me, though, the character that made this book is Harry. I loved his character. He's a lone wolf, but he's a natural alpha. Actually, June is a natural alpha too (as a witch? I know what you are thinking...some great twists to this world!!) I loved the scenes where June and Harry pitch their alphas against each other...so much fun. Every single time....I didn't know which one of them was going to come out on top. From beginning to end, I was completely immersed and mesmerized by the story. It's fabulous and entertaining. Just a fun, fabulous read!
