I really enjoyed this book. It begins with the origin of Jeremy and then moves into Clayton's life, which has a lot of humor and family love. I had loved Jeremy and Clayton in Armstrong's other books, and this book brought even more depth to each of them. This book won't be leaving my library!
I had small doubts about this book before I read it. Luckily it turned out really well. It goes into detail about the birth of Jeremy the Alpha werewolf; the infection of Clayton; and their life together before the arrival of Elena.
Clayton's reactions & view of the world made me chuckle many times. I loved the surprise supernatural circumstances surrounding Jeremy's birth & would like to hear more about it in future books.
This book is a nice compilation of short stories written from the perspective of the men in her world. Honestly I read most of them a long time ago as free stories on her website and got the book mostly for the last (and brand new) story Kitsunegari. This is told from Jeremy's POV and he's having a rare weekend with Jaime. I don't want to give anything away so I'll just that I really love our werewolf pack and stories revolving around them never disappoint. The story of how Clay becomes a werewolf is also a favorite. I recommend this book to any Armstrong fan or someone looking to see if they'd like her work.
