Months after saving Jamie and Deanna from crywolf, Kiara and her brother Cole have moved into the city. While clubbing one night, Kiara is stunned to see her ex, Taryn, onstage. But before she can react, Jamie notices a distinctive tattoo in the crowd: an axe rumored to be the mark of the Huntsmen, a group of werewolf-tracking humans. The girls need to leave immediately--and since Taryn is also a werewolf, they need to take her with them.
The Huntsmen are more than a myth, and they're scouring the city for lone wolves just like Taryn. Until the General North American Assembly of Werewolves lends a plan of action, Kiara's small pack is on lockdown in a friend's apartment, where she and Taryn must face the differences that drove them apart. Furthermore, the longer the group waits, the more it seems the Huntsmen haven't been acting entirely on their own.

Now that that’s all said, one of the things that niggled at me was Taryn. Ryn in themselves was NOT the problem. EVERYONE else in relation to Ryn was. Kiara especially. For someone who is suppose to be a partner of a genderqueer person and supposedly understanding of said genderqueer person I would expect them to use pronouns and refer to their partner as more than just “she”. It was disappointing to me.
I absolutely LOVED the focus of queer family. Family they chose for themselves. It’s heartwarming and wonderful. They support each other and don’t leave each other out for themselves. And the geekiness that permeated through them. Not all of them were geeky but they all participated in being geeky even if it wasn’t their thing. It was absolutely wonderful. I could feel the love they had for each other. And the love they had for the newcomer in their family group and acceptance of their newcomer once Kiara made it clear she wasn’t leaving Ryn. I definitely know people who have their chosen family like that. And to my own extent have my own though we’re not quite that close as we all have our own illnesses and such that prevent us from seeing each other as much as we’d like.
I’d definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to read a book about werewolf shifters and hot sex. With some incidents of violence. And chosen queer family who’ll stand by each other’s side while the world falls apart and is against them.
