Ally Marshall isn’t just a wolf shifter—she’s a Seer. But a girl doesn’t exactly need special powers to know that Derren Hudson despises her entire kind. Disdain practically rolls off the Beta of the Mercury Pack…disdain mixed with a healthy dose of desire. And no matter how much the ruggedly handsome male appeals to her, this is one call of the wild she’s determined to ignore.

After one betrayal too many, Derren doesn’t have much use for Seers—except for Ally. Forced into acting as her protector, he finds himself intensely and passionately drawn to the woman who incites his primal instinct to claim. And when enemies target the pack, Ally’s gift may be just what the Mercury Pack needs. Can he put his distrust aside, or will he force himself to turn his back on the one woman who makes his inner beast howl?

This is a spinoff from the Phoenix Pack series, which I’ve read and loved, so I was excited to see Darren’s story. I really like Darren as he’s loyal, protective, and totally sexy. Ally is strong, independent, and very relatable. The conflicts between them are solid and their resolutions satisfying. What I really love though, is the pack as a whole. I love their pack mates and enjoy their pack life. We get to catch up with Phoenix Pack members and the events that occur throughout the book keep you on edge and riding an extreme emotional roller coaster. I will definitely be reading every from this series and anything from this author. Spiral of Need is an exciting story with an incredibly fun cast of characters. I recommend this awesome read to any shifter fan!

Alyssa/Ally was accused of murder . Greg and Clint were enforcers and were playing good cop/ bad cop with her. Ally remained calm as she stated the facts . Ally was a wolf shifter and working hard to keep her wolf calm under the circumstances.Then Ally realized as far as Clint and greg were concerned she was guilty and they wanted a confession. Eight kids had trashed Ally’s cabin and had encircled her and they enjoyed telling her they were the ones to wreck her cabin. Also they had been put up to it by Rochelle the pack's beta. Zeke and Ally had been together but then Zeke found his true mate and it was Rochelle. Ally was a seer and had healed a lot of the pack's members at different times. But because of Rochelle’s hatred the pack was turning on Ally. Ally’s family had been assassinated when she was young but only her and her brother Cain had survived. Ally is taken by a neighboring pack- the Mercury pack and as a favor to a fellow shifter- Cain Derren Beter agrees to protect Ally til Cain can get to her. Even though the Mercury pack hates seers. Then Derren is angry because both he and his wolf want Ally through no fault of her own. But Derren also knows what it feels like to be falsely accused and have everyone turn their back on you. I loved this story . I was happy to read it although my heart went out to Ally as though she were real. There was a lot of action to keep you reading also. I love most of the characters especially Ally and all the twists and turns she went through. But I didn’t like Zeke very much at all. If he and Ally were so close he should have known that wasn’t her. He also should have known she would not have put her position into jeopardy. Great story anyway , I highly recommend. I received an ARC of this story for an honest review.

I read the first book in the original series and it was just okay. I enjoyed this one more. I really liked the characters better in this spin-off series. Derren and Ally's dominance juggling was much more agreeable than the same type of issue was in Feral Sins. I liked both of them. Derren is the dark and brooding type. He was wrongly accused as a young man and jailed. That event changed him and molded who he was. He doesn't believe he'll ever find or even recognize his mate. Responsibility is something he doesn't want but he stands up to it anyway. And he owes an old friend a favor. So he does what he has to. Ally is the kind of strong kind of women I can get behind. She's funny and strong but she cares. She allows that care to temper her need to dominate and the meanness that some strong women are portrayed as. She doesn't fight through her love. And she does love Derren. I enjoyed how she treated him before he could even stand her. It was perfect. The story was interesting. I enjoyed the world and how the story is not dependent on the love story. There was more than that and I really enjoyed the story continuing as it tied up every little piece of the story. Not as big of fan of this narrator. She was okay but she has this dramatic tone to some of her words that annoyed me. It eased as the book went on. I wouldn't mind reading more of this series but I don't want another one like Feral Sins so I probably won't.

Spiral of Need (The Mercury Pack #1) by Suzanne Wright Mercury Pack Beta Derren Hudson, must protect wolf shifter/Seer, Ally Marshall. Due to a betrayal in the past, he loathes Seers, but he also has a difficult time denying his desire for her. Suzanne Wright’s Spiral of Need is a tremendous start to The Mercury Pack Series, as well as an excellent spin-off of the Phoenix Pack. Ally is a worthy heroine. She is treated poorly by her previous pack. Now she is under the protection of The Mercury Pack that has had a bad experience with Seers, and they do not trust her. She is constantly battling prejudgment. Despite that, she is a good person that does the right thing. It is understandable why Derren does not like Seers. However, being a man of his word, he commits to helping Ally. For the first time, Derren and his wolf are attracted to the same female. I love that he faces his past, and that he is loyal. I still love Roni and Eli’s pranks. Those siblings are a riot. Plus, Ronnie’s out of the blue statements never get old. The plot was mysterious and well executed. So many things happened that kept this story interesting. I love how so many people grew in this story. I also appreciated that the Mercury Pack became more accepting of Ally as they got to know her. I loved Spiral of Need and am looking forward to the next book in the series. Complimentary copy provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

First of all, for anyone who has not read the Phoenix Pack series, I highly recommend starting there before reading this book. It's the only way to make sense of some of the characters and occurrences mentioned here. Ally Marshall has been isolated and is on the verge of being banished from her pack due to the machinations of a manipulative and devious female, so when an opportunity arises for her to temporarily move to the Mercury pack, she's glad to do so even though she knows that the move comes with its own set of issues. Derren Hudson is the beta of the Mercury Pack, quite aloof, distant and distrustful of most people but very loyal and dedicated to those dear to his heart. He's also very honorable, so that when a friend calls in a debt he has no choice but to honor his word and provide Ally with shelter within his pack, even though he despises her ability as a seer. But Ally is unexpected, his attraction to her is definitely unwanted and the fact that she may be with someone else is not enough to stop him from going after her. SPIRAL OF NEED is very similar to the books in the Phoenix Pack series and Ally's sassy and feisty attitude and mouthy comebacks remind me very much of Trayn from Feral Sins, but she's still different enough to be her own person. She's loyal, compassionate and very strong, especially to have withstood the stress from her former pack without cracking, but she's also very vulnerable and this comes from losing her family very young, not really fitting in anywhere since then and her deep longing to belong. The downside to her experiences is that she has built a wall around herself and only a determined alpha wolf like Derren can bring them down, a pleasurable and fun experience for both of them. I loved Derren and Ally together. She brought much-needed lightness to his broody and serious nature and was his champion in every way that counted. They had both been displaced from their families and packs and even though they were part of a pack now, they brought completeness to each other in a way that the pack did not. I have to say that I'm always excited to pick up a new book in this series because no-one else writes shifters like Ms. Wright does. The appeal lies in the dominant male characters who will go to great lengths to get their females; the sassy and feisty females who give the alpha males a run for their money and the sense of family and connections forged within the packs. Throw in some great dialogue, fun and sometimes hilarious moments and top it off with steamy sex and you have a winner on your hands.

This is a must read book and must read author!!! Branching off from Suzanne Wright’s Phoenix Pack series we now have the first official book in the Mercury Pack Spiral of Need. Once again Wright done not disappoint. Spiral of Need is filled with all our favorite characters and expands to include some new and more information on some others. This is an excellently written tale that includes alpha males, drama, and lots of humor for laughs; not to mention some steamy sex. I cannot get enough of Suzanne Wright’s writing, she provides an excellent story line, characters that you can see as real people (with no one being all good or all bad). She has absolutely amazing books. I can’t wait to read more!!!

YES! FINALLY! This author put out a shifter book that wasn't 5-pages or raunchy menage! I was beginning to wonder if shifter romances were becoming a myth. Suzanne Wright never fails to entertain me. This was a really good book and well worth the read. The author wrote a compelling and complex plot that kept me glued to the pages. I liked how she included previous characters from her Phoenix Pack series, yet it's not needed to read these to enjoy this book. I really liked Ally and Derren. They were both damaged, but not in the cliche overwritten way I'm getting sooo tired of reading. Their characters were well developed and compelling. This was well worth reading and I highly recommend it. I'm giving this novel five glittery stars for renewing my faith in shifter romances!

This had the usual action, romance as the other books of this author. It keeps you guessing and on your toes. I really enjoyed how the new Mercury Pack was still tied in with the Phoenix Pack and we got to see some of the old characters. Worth 4 stars.

There was just enough passionate anxiety to tug at your heart and feelers, and it went on long enough to be engaging, yet was relieved soon enough to avoid certain boredom. I like that the inevitable love triangle befitting of a shifter novel was only a figment of the male lead’s imagination and before you get upset, I swear I didn’t give it away, that is actually hinted at and then outright made clear to the reader in a ways that work well with the story. There were a few minor spelling and grammar problems, but nothing in the way of major distractions from the tale. I feel like some of the profanity could have been edited out so as not to cheapen its effect by overuse. There were a couple of inconsistencies in the details, for instance, when the pack went for a group run the female lead spoke to the male lead in his animal form because she knew he would understand her but later when the female lead was in her animal form it was made clear that she couldn’t understand human words. That lost me a little bit, but I still enjoyed the story. Frankly I found the tale better than average and only in need of a few tweaks. I enjoy well-written tales of shifters and this one is almost perfect.
