A Pack of Blood and Lies: Review
Sassy protagonist. Werewolves who occasional sniff vaginas in a jealous rage while butt naked. Murder plots. Yes, this had it all.
A huge thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for a chance to review this book ahead of its release date.
Ness finds herself dragged off to her old home in Boulder Colorado after the death of her mother. Back with the all-male wolf pack which once shunned her, she now finds herself invested in bitterness against one of the pack members, a boy named Liam, who happens to be the son of a man who raped Ness’s mother. To spite him, she puts her name in to become Alpha and eventually puts herself through tasks against some of the pack’s ruthless men. Liam’s icy yet heated demeanor toward her tries to knock her off balance. Que the secrets that affect not only Ness but Liam and the entire pack.
What I liked:
WOLVES WOLVES WOLVES I love wolves. I cannot get enough of them. I love them so much I wrote my own shifter book which is why I think enjoyed this so much. There is a lack of shifter books out there in the YA world that set themselves apart. Ness was a great character in that she acted like your average teenager, but when faced with the real stuff she didn’t run. She met it head-on. I was with her every step of the way.
The writing was fun, and I enjoyed Ness’s introspection on the patriarchal society she found herself in. The writing was what kept me going after the first chapter which was a tad too fast for my taste. But as I continued, I found that I liked how fast-paced it was. It didn’t beat around the wolf. It took on the plot with teeth bared and ready.
Overall, I enjoyed this book — a lot. And I am waiting with bated breath until I get my grubby hands on the next book.
