Wicked Wolf
A 1,001 Dark Nights Novella and a story of the Redwood Pack

Buy from Amazon

The war between the Redwood Pack and the Centrals is one of wolf legend. Gina Eaton lost both of her parents when a member of their Pack betrayed them. Adopted by the Alpha of the Pack as a child, Gina grew up within the royal family to become an enforcer and protector of her den. She’s always known fate can be a tricky and deceitful entity, but when she finds the one man that could be her mate, she might throw caution to the wind and follow the path set out for her, rather than forging one of her own.

Quinn Weston’s mate walked out on him five years ago, severing their bond in the most brutal fashion. She not only left him a shattered shadow of himself, but their newborn son as well. Now, as the lieutenant of the Talon Pack’s Alpha, he puts his whole being into two things: the safety of his Pack and his son.

When the two Alphas put Gina and Quinn together to find a way to ensure their treaties remain strong, fate has a plan of its own. Neither knows what will come of the Pack’s alliance, let alone one between the two of them. The past paved their paths in blood and heartache, but it will take the strength of a promise and iron will to find their future.

Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Bewitching Bella - Charity:
*Copy gifted in exchange for an honest review

Wicked Wolf is a novella that takes place 15 years after the official Redwood pack series ends. I was slightly skeptical at first to dive into this book not knowing what to expect especially since the Redwood Pack had technically officially ended. I enjoyed the beginning, Carrie Ann has a way of hooking a reader at the very beginning so that you want to keep reading to find out the answers to the questions that are spinning around in your head. By the time I got to the plot twist I felt I was immersed enough into the short story that my emotions went on a roller coaster along with the characters. It's amazing how Carrie Ann can do this in so few pages, that's one of the reason she is always on my auto buy list and is in my top 10 favorite authors of all time.

One of things I really have to point out is, as diehard long time Redwood Pack Series fan, I was very curious to see how Carrie Ann was going to bridge the Redwood Pack and the Talon Pack, I wholeheartedly believe that Carrie Ann did a beautiful job using Wicked Wolf as that bridge between the two series and the two packs.

One thing that has me very excited about the Talon Pack is that Wicked Wolf gave us a mystery and a whole new story line that has me intrigued and excited to see what's going to happen next in this world and with this new pack.

Gina is a strong wolf with a damaged past but that has not stopped her from becoming an important part of the Redwood Pack and their future. When she meets Quinn she faces feelings she did not know she could have. Unfortunately because of Quinn's own damage past he will ignore his feelings until he realizes that Gina is the only answer to fix his future. With these two strong wolves the future of two packs lay in the balance. And with an unknown danger lurking in the future the two packs need to be united now more than ever. Can Gina and Quinn put aside their damage pasts to ensure not only their packs futures but their own?

Again this short novella had me on an emotional roller coaster along with the characters that had me intrigued and enticed enough to open myself up to fall in love with a whole new pack.

I will forever be a diehard Redwood Pack fan but there is definitely room in my heart for another pack, and that pack will be the Talon Pack. Great Job Carrie Ann!!
