Recaptured by the Pack: A Bayou Wolves Prequel, Anne Marsh
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
This sounded right up my street, werewolves, adventure, a bit of danger, lots of spice and not just one but two sexy alpha males. It did have all that but somehow for me it just didn’t really work.
I felt kind of under-whelmed by the story, as if all the elements were there but didn’t reach the potential I thought the story had. The biker gang battle was really just hinted at, a little action when Luc first comes on the scene and that’s really it. Then there’s Luc and Cruz. We didn’t really get to know much about either, what Luc had been doing over the past ten years, how they could both be Alphas and yet make the decision they did without some kind of arguments, friction, physical fights. They acted completely at odds with how Alpha werewolves are usually portrayed and I needed more reasons why. I’d have liked to have met their packs too, got a feel for how they would react. As Alphas their decisions affect the whole pack after all. Still its a shortish read at just over 1900 kindle locations and I guess that’s why these issues don’t really get explored enough for me. I’m not really a fan of novellas and I hadn’t realised this was one, my error and I wouldn’t have chosen it if I’d known. If you enjoy novellas this could be a perfect 5* read for you but it’s a 3* from me.
Stars: two and a half, a lot of potential but didn’t really live up to it for me.
