I love this series that is based upon a SWAT team that is made up entirely of werewolves. In this world, you aren’t turned, but born a werewolf. However, you might not ever know it. It takes a traumatic event to actually activated the werewolf gene. Each book tends to start off with a prologue going into the past to tell you how they became a werewolf.

Alex is an ex-Marine. He has also the main person that cares for the team’s new mascot, a former fighting pitbull. When he takes her into the vet, his normal vet isn’t around and has to see someone different in the office. He was hesitant at first (I know the feeling, while I know my vet hires only great vets, I still want the one that knows my animals). That is until he sets his eyes on Lacey.

Lacey is an amazing woman. She is a vet and put herself through school to get there. She’s also raised her little sister as their mother wasn’t alway mentally in the picture. She also volunteers as a local animals shelter. She’s even gone on calls with the police to perform triage on animals that might be so bad off, that even the drive to the animal hospital is too much for them. She also has some issues with men, based on some stuff with her mom. So when Alex tries to ask her out, she balks.

So, in this book, we have the slow building romance between Alex and Lacey. Alex gets a little stalkerish when she first turns him down. He shows up at the vet office to buy dog food, toys, and everything else he can think of to visit. He is very loyal and wants to prove himself to her.

They are also both working on the same case of dog fights, though they don’t know it at first. There is also a lot more to this than just dog fights. There is also a new kind of heroine on the streets. Oh and then girls start to go missing. How does all of this tie together?

This is a fun series. There is a ton of action. The romance is okay, but not my favorite part of the stories (it rarely is, for me. Romance is usually the bonus to the story with the action or humor being the main reason I pick a book). I do wish that we would learn more about these werewolves. I love how Ms. Tyler has this lore, but I want to know more about it. I feel I should know more this far into a series. It is still a fun series. I look forward to the next book.

I love Abby Craden. She does a great job with this series. I love her male and female voices. Her pace and tone are always spot on. While I don’t think of this series as a “funny” series, it does have humor. Abby Craden does a great job adding to that humor. She does make you chuckle a few times in this book. I highly recommend her.

I’m Melanie and I live in Ohio. I have two horses and a dog. I’m an animal lover, avid book reader and audiobook listener. I like to live vicariously through fictional characters. I enjoy reading and listening to mostly fictional books in the paranormal genre, including Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance and Horror. My favorite paranormal creatures are shifters, doesn’t matter the flavor.


    • It is a fun series. It is almost a romantic suspense with werewolves than PNR.

  1. I feel the same about romances as you. I like the sound of the werewolves being born that is unique.

  2. I am getting read to start the next book next week and I have the same bit of impatience going in that I hope more about their werewolf world gets revealed along with all the good stuff she puts into the action plots.

    • I hope we will learn more about these werewolves soon. Tantor has told me that they don’t have the audio rights for the next book. I don’t know who does. I hope they stay with Abby Craden.

  3. I really like this series and can’t wait to get to this one. 🙂

    • I’m excited for the next one too. Tantor doesn’t have the audio rights. I’m not sure who does.

      • It looks like my pub has gone with a different producer for the audio book for WOLF HUNT, but it’s available for pre-order at Amazon.

  4. These werewolves sound different. I love the vet angle. I will have to try this series out.

    • It is a fun series. I really enjoyed her X-Ops series too (though it isn’t available on audio)

  5. This does sound like a more original take on weres, which I really like. Hope the next book is even better!

    • I do like how they become werewolves. Makes them have interesting stories.

  6. I like the mythology of this series, but have seen mixed reviews. Glad you are enjoying them!

    • I don’t think the romance is extremely strong, but if you go into it more as a police/suspense type story with werewolves and some romance, it is fun.

  7. This sounds like my kind of book. I’ve read a couple of her books and liked them.

    • I’ve read this series and her X-Ops series. I’ve enjoyed them both. She has some contemporary series that I haven’t tried.

  8. Oh wow what a great premise for the series and this book. I too would want to know more about the origins of the werewolves.

    • I do love what I know about the werewolf lore that she’s created. It has left me eager to learn more. I hope that more will come soon.

  9. I’m behind on this series. I need to get caught up!

    • It is very easy to get behind on series. I know that I am on several
