Blurb: The Winter Circle is on the rise and the most desperate hour for humankind is at hand. Working from the shadows, the dark god Anubis, jealous enemy of the goddess Sirius, is setting years’ long plans in motion, a master scheme that will strike home in the heart of Jefferson Pack.
Nate is a survivor. He survived rejection by his father and his pack when he was a child. He survived being alone, kidnapped, starved, and tortured. But the more he recovers, the more he realizes he seems to be developing abilities that surpass those of the Supreme Alphas.
More than that, though, he can’t move past the scar of knowing he was responsible for killing Darric, even though the Alpha was resurrected by Orion and Nate was forgiven; he can’t let go of his fear that there is something terrible hiding in the many holes in the memories of his childhood.
The Winter Circle strikes, and there is a traitor within the pack, one who means to see the end of all hybrids, including Nate and Kellan’s pups. But as all hell breaks loose Nate’s greatest fear is not the danger that surrounds him, it’s the danger that hides within him. When Nate’s finds out his true purpose, and terrible secrets are revealed, will love triumph over evil? Or will the secret that Nate carries just be the death of them all?
Review: I think this book was aptly named when Victoria Sue called it The Beginning, even if it is the sixth book in a series of seven. It is a beginning, of sorts, with revelations made and twists and turns and betrayals. I loved this book so much and was at the edge of my seat the entire time.
**If you haven’t read the previous five books, you absolutely must before you read this one, because everything ties in together and carries through this book.
By the end of the fifth book it is clear that Nate and Kellan are both carrying pups. How, it’s unclear, as they are not omega, but it doesn’t matter. What does matter is that they are thrilled, along with Marcus and Ricoh. Ricoh, while thrilled, most definitely does not want to be pregnant and is happy to leave it to the other two.
Marcus is doing better. He’s received new legs and while not robotic, they allow him to move with confidence and even run, and he’s happy with that. Of course, he still questions his role as Alpha, but he is settling in and all the wolves trust him.
But then Nate’s father shows up. The man who kicked Nate out of the pack when he was just fourteen years old. What does he want, and why does he want it now? While he claims he’s been searching for Nate the entire time, no one buys it. And with good reason. They’ve been betrayed so many times before, it’s hard to know who to trust.
I was once again blown away by who the traitor was. I didn’t see it coming! I should have. It clicked as the reveal happened, but I was so surprised! Victoria Sue has a way of really burying the information in a way that is logical but in no way blatant. You just have to really put all the clues together, and for that I am grateful.
I cannot say much more without giving away the incredible ending, but I will say that, for now at least, it is a happy ending, and I cannot wait to read the final book in the series. If the way the series has been progressing continues, it’s going to be one incredible story.
