Overview

With her blue-black hair and striking green eyes, Cailin Jamenson is the epitome of beauty and the exemplar of strength. She has fought the enforced boundaries of being the lone Jamenson daughter and Redwood Pack princess, but it is the potential future with the dark wolf in her path that threatens everything she thought she desired.

Logan Anderson’s own darkness provided the reasoning for his abandonment of his former Pack, the Talons. Now, newly accepted into the Redwood Pack, this jade-eyed wolf and all she represents could be his own undoing.

In this final installment of the Redwood Pack, unimaginable tragedy strikes, and the two wolves who have fought the longest for their independence now face the uncertainty of fate and the epic battle that could end the war… and their lives.

    I went into Fighting Fate with mixed emotions. On one hand I couldn't wait to start and was so looking forward to at last reading Cailin and Logan's story but this was overshadowed by the fact that this is the final instalment in the Redwood Pack series and I didn't want the story to end.....

    Carrie didn't disappoint and she finished the series with a bang.... Fighting Fate is a fantastic read and an excellent way to say goodbye to this generation of Jamensons.

    Cailin & Logan have been dancing round each other, doing everything they could to avoid facing the obvious attraction between them... Will they finally deal with their feelings and the connection that they seem to have?!
    The war that has been raging around the Redwoods is nearing it's climax and everyone knows it - they just don't know what to expect or how things are gonna turn out!!!

    So much to deal with and so little time to prepare....

    One of the main things I loved about the book was the continued focus on the Jamensons as a family as well as pack... We are reminded again of how important they are to each other and how they would do all and anything they had to for each other!!!

    Action, drama, tension, surprises, heat & passion, pain & heartbreak, it's all packed into this final book and makes for a heart-racing (jeez, at times a nigh on heart-stopping!!) ride!

    Grab yourself a copy of Fighting Fate, take yourself off somewhere quiet - 'cos you won't want to be disturbed once you start reading - and lose yourself in the final instalment of the Redwood Pack's story!!

    ** A word of warning before you do start reading ~ you're gonna need tissues... lots & lots of tissues - and maybe take the next day off work to avoid people seeing your big red puffy eyes...or you could wear some dark glasses - just sayin'!! ;)




    **I received an advanced copy of Fighting Fate from the Publisher in exchange for an honest review**

    Being the only girl and the baby of the family with 6 older alph

    Being the only girl and the baby of the family with 6 older alpha brothers wasn’t always a pain.  They spoiled Cailin and treated her like a princess.  Then they grew up and found their place in the pack.  Cailin is still struggling with that and it seems like her brothers don’t acknowledge that she has grown up.  Now her wolf wants to mate with a male who is as dominant as her brothers.  No way is she getting out from under them just to end up under another even if he is hot as sin.  Besides there is a war going on and the pack needs her to act as Jaspers assistant right?  Logan wants Cailin just as she is.  He has been giving her time to get used to the idea but war has a way of screwing up time tables.  When tragedy strikes it brings home just how short life can be even for long lived werewolves.  
    Cailin is the last of the Jamenson’s to fall and I for one will be sad to see them go.  I am thrilled that Ms. Ryan will be giving us occasional glimpses back at these old friends and look forward to meeting the men of the Talon pack.  This like the other books in this series is full of fun, action, adventure, magic and really hot sex.  
    I was fortunate enough to have received a complimentary copy provided by author/publisher for an honest review.

    The Action Packed Series End

    So much going on in this one. So soap opera style. Does North recover his sight? Do Logan and Callin stop avoiding each other? What torture does the Cyan have in store for the Redwood Pack? What does it take to finally beat Central and Cyan - if it is possible? For all the answers to these and most of the other questions in the series. The answer is simple and very enjoyable - read this book.

    Perfect ending to a great series

    (SPOILER WARNING)
    This was probably one of the books i was waiting for. The story was amazing, and though i'm sad that Edward and Pat died, i feel that every reign should come to an end, and they died very nobly i'd say. It was nice seeing Cailin and Logan come together finally, and as much as i like Logan, i quite enjoyed seeing the Jameson boys beat him up fir hurting their sister. It was nice to see that even through all of the changes they can still find time to be the over protective idiot brothers that we've all seen slips of in the previous books. I hope we get to find out more on Cailins baby and i'm intrigued to see where Noah and Emalines relationship goes. All in all, Carrie Ann Ryan wrapped up things nicely for the end of, in my opinion, her most loved by fans, series.

    This is a great ending to the Redwood Pack series. As in all the books in the series there is torture,lots of sex but i think that has to be in here to tell the story.   Yes there is tragedy in here but also a happy ending. I cried in the beginning of book and at the end. You will laugh,cry and cuss at this story but you will love it also. I am sad to see it end but i'm sure we will here about the Redwoods in another series Carrie Ann is writing.

    Thrilling action and heart capturing emotions abound throughout

    Thrilling action and heart capturing emotions abound throughout this mesmerizing Redwood Pack story. Unimaginable tragedy strikes the pack and the two wolves who have fought the longest now face the uncertainty of fate. As the Pack princess, Cailin Jamenson has fought the enforced boundaries of being the only daughter. But now it is the future potential with Logan Anderson and his darkness that threatens everything she thought she desired.
    This fast paced and smooth flowing plot keeps readers on their toes with suspense, drama, action and romance.  The author brings the story to life with well written scenes and details that capture the imagination and the well orchestrated suspense and action draws the reader deeper into the story. The characters are strong, compelling, easily understood and grab the reader’s attention from the very beginning.  
    The possible mating between Logan and Cailin has been radiating heat from every page since the two first met, but the relationship has taken awhile to get going because of some emotional issues on both sides and the reader can’t help but get caught up in their story as they try to work through them, of course the sex scenes are red hot and scorch the reader, no problem there.  
    The battle between the Redwood Pack and the Centrals have waged for a few years and the readers have followed faithfully through all the tragedy and triumphs, tears and smiles, but the ultimate tragedy brings heartache and tears to the reader’s eyes.  But don’t despair because this story is also about hope and HEAs and the author doesn’t disappoint.
    This story is an exciting conclusion to the Redwood Pack saga, despite the sadness that I feel for the tragedy in the story.  I am also upset that series is ending, but I feel that it is the right time and I am hoping that we will still hear from them from time to time, like in the upcoming novella Loving the Omega and possible in the upcoming Talon Pack, which I am looking forward to reading.

    NUMBER OF HEARTS: 4
    REVIEW: 
    We finally get the Princess of the Redwood Pack’s story. Cailin has been a long time favorite of mine. Maybe because she is standoffish, maybe because she is tough, or maybe it is because what Fate has in store for her might just save them all. Only problem is that Cailin is stubborn, tough, and standoffish that she just might lose out on what is most important. 

    This was really good way to end the Redwood Pack series, although it looks like there might be a novella here an there still to come. If you have not read any of the Redwood Pack books you need to start from the beginning. There is to much history in each book and to much interconnected events that reading Fighting Fate first would be a huge mistake. 

    I will warn you that if you can make it through chapter 2 you may be golden. There is a few Oh My GOD moments that left me speechless. 

    Looking forward to what Carrie Ann has in store for the Talon Pack.

    Fighting Fate (Redwood Pack #7) by Carrie Ann Ryan Pack princes

    Fighting Fate (Redwood Pack #7) by Carrie Ann Ryan

    Pack princess, Cailin Jamenson, is the youngest and only daughter of Redwood family.  She has been fighting her attraction to potential mate, Logan Anderson, because she does not want to give up her independence.  The final battle with the Central Pack is on the horizon, causing Cailin and Logan to question their relationship.

    I love this book, and I’m so sad that this series has ended. It has been a wonderful journey.  Carrie Ann Ryan wrote an incredible conclusion to the Redwood Pack Series.  

    I adore Cailin.  I think it was appropriate hearing her story last since she is the youngest and only female in the family.  I can understand why she would be hesitant to be mated with having six overprotective older brothers.  She is really a smart and strong heroine.  

    Logan is the epitome strong alpha.  I love the interesting details we discover about his family.  Cailin and Logan are a fantastic couple with great chemistry.  They are easy to love and root for.  They have fun dialog and work well together.

    The plot was perfect.  The action was non-stop.  There was the perfect amount of drama and romance.  I laughed; I cried, and I cheered.  Fighting Fate had a satisfying ending, that felt complete.

    A part of me has that hollowed out feeling in my chest because I’m sad that the series has ended.  I was relieved to discover that there is going to be a spin off season of the Talon Pack. I’m a shape-shifter-aholic and Carrie Ann Ryan is a master at that topic.  If you love paranormal books and have not tried the Redwood Pack Series I highly suggest it.  If you are a fan of the series, you will not be disappointed.

    Am sorry to see the Redwood Pack series end but looking forward to the Talon stories. These books are a great series and I think you will love them all. I do hope North gets his sight back it didn' t seem fair that after Caym was taken the spell didn't go away.

    How am I supposed to write this review, it¿s like saying goodbye

    How am I supposed to write this review, it’s like saying goodbye all over again to my beloved Redwoods, the first time being when I actually read Fighting Fate. So with tissues ready I will do my best to give this review my all.

    Cailin was an ever present character throughout every novel and novella in this series. Always there fighting alongside each of her brothers with a fierce passion for her family and her pack. Never knowing where her duties lay within the pack, she has no real “gifts” like her brothers; she not only fights for a place to fit in but for her freedom from fate.

    Logan has finally found a home, not one that he wants but one that makes his sister and nephew happy and that’s all he has ever wanted until he laid eyes on the Redwood Princess. Now with a renewed passion for life he is willing to lay his own down to save his new pack.

    Sadly, I knew that there was going to be a devastating twist to this story with the end of this series coming near, I was prepared for it. It was needed in order for the Jamenson’s to fight till the death but even with knowing it was coming I was shaking with dread as I read word after word that broke my heart. 

    Each book in this series lead us closer and closer to the end and each Jamenson was instrumental in the end of the “big bad” but it’s Cailin and Logan who fulfill the prophecy and deliver the final blow and as always they did it in Jamenson fashion. With passion and love they face death and fate alongside their Pack. And I for one could not be happier with the ending. 

    Again I thought I was prepared for this book but I was nowhere near ready for it all to end but it did and through my tears, I couldn't help but finally breathe a sigh of relief that even though my beloved Redwoods were all done telling their stories, they could finally live in a peace they hadn't known for many years. And that made it all worth it.

    To my beloved Carrie Ann, this may be the end (for now) of the family that rocketed your career but you have to know that as a reader I am so happy that throughout this series I was able to see you grow as a writer and you did so with beauty and grace. Thank you for sharing your Redwoods with us and allowing me to be a part of each and every book.
