Meet the Author

Dean started reading seriously in the second grade due to a competition and has spent most of the subsequent three decades lost in other people's worlds. After reading several local libraries more or less dry of sci-fi and fantasy, he started spending more time wandering around worlds of his own creation to avoid the boredom of the 'real' world.


Things worsened, or improved depending on your point of view, when he first started experimenting with writing while finishing up his accounting degree. These days Dean has a wonderful wife and daughter to keep him rather more grounded, but the idea of bringing others along with him as he meets interesting new people in universes nobody else has ever seen tends to drag him back to his computer on a fairly regular basis.

First, I always pre-read what my kids read so I wasn't expecting to genuinely enjoy the series. I have to say that I loved this series. These characters are not Edward Cullen or Cinderella. They are raw and imperfect and so compelling. Some editing stuff was annoying but the story and the characters were well worth it. I recommend this thoroughly not just for teens but for adults as well. Hope it pans out into a movie series because as I said, the characters are really wonderful. There is some very bloody violence, murder, death but it is in context with the story and not glamorized. Please read. Was really engaging.

These books are so amazing I really love the love story between Alec and Adriana and the other love stories between the other pack members. What I really look forward to is seeibg if and when Alec's sister Rachel falls in love with a man that has the same love for her as she does for him im lookibg forward to reading the rest of the series.

I loved this book, I can't say enough wonderful things about this series as a whole.  Start from the beginning, the first book, Broken is free!  It is just one of those series that makes you want to climb in and be a part of it all.  The character development is fantastic and you learn more and more about each character as the series continues.

Just wish it was longer and developed a deeper storyline. Hard to wait for the next book to be out. Love Alec and Adri storyline. Just want more.

The story continued and the writimg was wonderful but after reading Broken which was a very nice long length I expected the same of Splinter. As such, I'm extremely disappointed at the short length. Why bother to publish the comtinuation of a story that's so obviously unfinished!

Splintered picks up shortly after the first novel. (Torn is written from Alex’s POV and Broken from Adri’s POV.) In my opinion, Splintered would not work well as a standalone. It continues the story without a lot of back history. I had to refresh my memory to reestablish who, what and where. Alex is trying to clean up the mess left by Brandon’s pack and discovers they were involved in some illegal activity. He leaves Sanctuary to straighten things out and finds himself in serious trouble. Meanwhile, the two wolves they accepted into the pack are having difficulty adjusting to their new lower rankings. Sam, shares his feelings with Adri and she is appalled by how things work within the pack. Jasmin is quick to warn her not to object or she will undermine Alex. When Agony shows up with his pack it causes havoc for Alex and puts Adri in jeopardy. The tale that unfolds was an entertaining, easy read. The ending surprised me and I felt ended abruptly. I think readers will either love it or hate it. We get to meet more pack members and see the violent side of a packs hierocracy. Adri has trouble dealing with all of this, she isn’t seeing Alex enough and her Mom is back in town and suddenly wants to be an involved parent. Sadly, Adri annoyed me a little in this novel. She doesn’t listen to Alex, even when it puts her at risk. She gets in the middle of things and just rubbed me the wrong way. Being leader of the pack is taking its toll on Alex and with the Coun’hij there it just goes from bad to worse. I loathed Agony and hated how he took pleasure from manipulation and fighting. There is very little development in the romance department with Alex and Adri. It is clear they have feelings for each other, but things are just messy. Splintered didn’t impress me the way that Torn did, but it was still an enjoyable read.-I want to thank the author for providing this ARC in exchange for my unbiased review.
