Pulled me in
A 20-year-old wolf has yet to find their true mate at the yearly Pull Gatherings. The problem is, they don’t know if they can even feel The Pull. Another wolf at the gathering is feeling the pressure from its parents to mark someone this year or lose the right to become Beta of the pack. Both only have seven days to find their true mate.
This was an easy read. I could easily understand what was going on with the story for the most part and the dialogue was done well. The story moved at a good pace without being too fast or dragging at any point. I did find a couple spelling mistakes, a missing word or extra word and using the wrong phrase, but not nearly enough to ruin the story and lose a star. For example:
-Kindle (page 10): says, ‘….being lectured about…’ instead of ‘….being lectured to about….’
-Kindle (page 235): says ‘Through the power of oThe Moon Goddese,’ instead of ‘Through the power of The Moon Goddess.’
Even though I read this book in only a couple days, there was still some plot confusion in several areas that did ruin the flow and made me question what I just read and refer back to what the author said previously. Here are only a few examples:
-Wolf 1 has been to two Pull Gatherings before and is told they should leave the pack if they don’t find another at this year’s gathering. Next, we see them packing to leave and their sibling is going now as well because they hadn’t found a mate yet either. When they get on the bus to go to The Pull Gathering, they say they’ve never been. This is explained better later but is confusing to the reader initially.
-Wolf 1 has not shifted yet; their siblings have but that’s because they didn’t receive any of the mother’s pack’s traits. How would that be possible? Unless born of a different mother, which isn’t the case because they have one true mate and those who lose them never mark another, according to the author.
-Wolf 1 doesn’t acknowledge Wolf 2 in the crowd when called out in celebration, not wanting to bring attention to themselves. But, when it’s Wolf 2’s turn, they call out to them and even wave, bringing the undue attention to them they initially didn’t want.
-Mated wolves come together and mark (bite) one another while intimate and show they are each other’s for life. Wolf 1 and Wolf 2 are forbidden from marking each other until after The Challenge for political reasons. However, we later read they are in bed together before The Challenge has occurred and based on previous behavior, there is no way they left each other unmarked.
There are some liberal leanings in this book, in case you aren’t partial to that.
-The narration explains how all money made from outside sources, which would be all of it since they are not a self-sustaining society, is turned over to the Pack Council, which is then distributed to all for the betterment of the pack.
I enjoyed how the author closed out the book and added the synopsis of the next book at the end. The author made it sound like a TV show’s ‘to be continued,’ that you had to wait to watch.
I liked the book overall and am curious to see where the author takes this story.
