Overview

When the great war between the Redwoods and the Centrals occurred three decades ago, the Talon Pack risked their lives for the side of good. After tragedy struck, Gideon Brentwood became the Alpha of the Talons. But the Pack's stability is threatened, and he's forced to take mate-only the one fate puts in his path is the woman he shouldn't want.

Though the daughter of the Redwood Pack's Beta, Brie Jamenson has known peace for most of her life. When she finds the man who could be her mate, she's shocked to discover Gideon is the Alpha wolf of the Talon Pack. As a submissive, her strength lies in her heart, not her claws. But if her new Pack disagrees or disapproves of fate's choice, the consequences could be fatal.

As the worlds Brie and Gideon have always known begin to shift, they must face their challenges together in order to help their Pack and seal their bond. But when the Pack is threatened from the inside, Gideon doesn't know who he can trust and Brie's life could be forfeit in the crossfire. It will take the strength of an Alpha and the courage of his mate to realize where true loyalties lie.

Another great book I found by this author! I really liked this book, and even though I didn't read the other books that this follows, but that was okay because the storyline was easy to follow. I love reading about supernatural creatures and this was one of the better ones that I have read. Of course, the book isn't without its flaws. Too quickly do the characters fall in love, and in terms of its violence and the main characters "angst" and "darkness" I found to be very tame and could have been fleshed out more. However, Carrie Ann Ryan is a pretty good author, and I really enjoy reading her books. Her books I do not actually mind spending my money on! I can't wait to read the next one.

I enjoyed the story line. The only problem I had was the cliffhanger at the end. It also seemed a little rushed. But it was an entertaining read.

Loved it

However! Loved the storyline and loved the characters. Felt the author went overboard in the vulgar department! Although I'm curious to see how the pact excels, unfortunately can't handle the vulgar areas! It really needs to be toned down! Would have loved to rate this 4 stars at least!

Tattered Loyalties is Book 1 in the Carrie Ann Ryan's Talon Pack series which is a spin-off from her Redwood series. I have not yet had a chance to read any of the Redwood series but I will be remedying that shortly. There were certainly references to things that happened in the past which I "assume" were in the Redwood series but it didn't detract from the story that I hadn't read any of those earlier stories. Gideon is Alpha in the Talon Pack whereas Brie is a submissive in the Redwood Pack. Brie caught a glimpse of Gideon at a young age which turned her off towards other men so she is very innocent. My heart broke at times for Brie. Wanting so hard to fit in and prove her place in the pack despite the odds. While the story was action-packed and kept me engaged throughout, the fact that Brie was a submissive did go on a bit which results in only the 4 stars. Overall, I enjoyed this story and look forward to not only reading the rest of books in the series but also going back to pick up the Redwood series.

Talon Pack Book One. OR Redwood Pack Book Nine. While it is absolutely possible to read this without reading the Redwood Pack series first, I highly recommend starting with the Redwoods. There are characters that you can tell are important, but without that background you will not know how they are connected. The Alpha of the Talon Pack, Gideon Brentwood, knows that the mate the Goddess has presented him will not work, but when he is faced with a decree to mate with another he must choose Brie Jamenson or a mate he will never love. Brie has known who her chosen mate was since childhood, but never said anything for fear of destroying both the Talon and Redwood packs. As a submissive wolf, how can she possibly be fit for the Alpha of another pack? The two must find a way to come together or face the Talon Pack's destruction by forces thought to be dead. If you're looking for a wolf shifter world where those in power were placed there too early, this is the one for you! Audio Review: Gregory Salinas narrates this series, as well as most of Carrie Ann Ryan's other books. He has a relationship with the characters that can only come with familiarity to the author and her writing style. He is the voice of the Redwood Pack and now the Talons, as well.

Have you ever read a book that shook a part of you on a very human level that you didn’t realize a book could do that to you? Well that is exactly what Tattered Loyalties did to me and for me. Without spoiling the Meta Arc of this series before a reader gets the chance to read it for themselves I am going to try to give you the best review that I can and explain why I felt a connection to this book like never before. First I am a huge Redwood Pack Series fan and was thrilled to hear that Carrie Ann Ryan was going to allow those fans to see the future of the kids we saw born in that series and in the war throughout that series. Having said that you DO NOT need to read the Redwood Series in order to start The Talon Series, Carrie Ann Ryan does a very good job of explaining the history of the world so that readers can start with Tattered Loyalties and feel just as immersed in the world without having to read anything prior. But of course I highly recommend reading the Redwood Series just for the experience. The Talon Pack is led by An Alpha named Gideon that came to be the alpha through nontraditional means but in doing so gave his pack the only chance of survival from itself and the evil that was living within it. Now Gideon must face his past and the future that he feels is looming over his pack, with all the plans he is putting in place to protect his pack from what could possibly be coming for them he never thought that what could be the answer to his biggest problem, himself, would be a mate. Especially a mate that he thinks could never handle the evil he feels he is surrounded by. Brie is a Redwood; she has always known where her place has been within her pack and has always known that it was important and needed in its own way for the survival and moral of the pack. It’s not one of strength in the traditional manner but one of love and softness, within that love and softness comes its own strength that not all wolves appreciate or see as valuable as traditional strength. When she realizes that she is the solution to one of Gideon’s biggest problems, Brie decides she would rather sacrifice her need for “happily ever after” for duty, in the hopes that she can be exactly what the Talon Pack needs to really heal and move forward and survive whatever may be coming in the future. Things don’t go very smooth, there are members of the Talon pack who do not think a submissive wolf can be the Alpha Female and will go to any length to make sure she will not be for long. But Brie’s strength doesn’t come from her skill in fighting it comes from her sheer will to strive in life and in whatever role the Fates believe she is fit for and she will prove to the pack that she is the Alpha Female they need and deserve. The only thing that I did not like about Tattered Loyalties was I felt utterly unprepared for the emotional roller coaster I was on especially in the last chapter, I felt like I was hit by a mack truck and it’s rare that Carrie Ann leaves the reader feeling that way in the end of her books. In that sense I feel that her writing has grown a bit darker and has gotten heavier and to be a long time Carrie Ann Ryan fan that shows me some growth. It scares me a little thou because I am afraid to see what happens next. I Give Tattered Loyalties (Book One in The Talon Pack Series) by Carrie Ann Ryan 5 out of 5, solely because of the impact it made on me and as a reader that’s what we want right?
