Blood Binds the Pack by Alex Wells
The Ghost Wolves - Book Two
I really enjoyed this book and can't figure out for the life of me why it took so long to read it! I think I have to blame the weather because it seems when it's really humid, I cannot concentrate on any book for longer than 15 minutes. Sadly.
Now this is the second of the Ghost Wolves books, and I adored the first one, this one was just not quite as wonderful by a smidge but I think that's because of my problems with the heat. Again, as in the first book, the beginning half of the story starts slow, and I find myself wondering if I'd read this book on the heels of the first one (read that one over a year ago) if I wouldn't have found it so. It this that makes me think the plot line with Shige and the Mr Yellow, the Weatherman, held more import than I gave it. But anyway, come the halfway point the story picked up with a vengeance.
Our favourites are back and although I'd have liked more interaction with Hob and the Wolves, it was good to see how she'd taken complete control of her people. I also would have liked more with her and Mag, but that's not the way the story went - they each had a job to do to take care of their folks.
Mysteries were solved and my suspicions about the Bone Collector turned out to be true. Go me!
I loved the world-building and most of the characters and I was truly sad when the story ended because I wanted more action, more plotting, more raids, more fighting for the right reasons. I wonder if the author will ever revisit Tanegawa's World? I hope so, cause I'll sure be there to read about it.
