They are a new breed, a new race. Engineered rather than born, trained rather than raised, and their unique genetics have created more than one surprise...
Jacob left Faith six years before, unaware that the mark he left on her also left her in an agony of sexual heat that never dimmed. Now Jacob and Faith are together again, but surprises lurk around every corner and dangers as dark and deadly as their very creation surround them in more ways than one.
In the last book, Wolfe's Hope, I was disappointed in not having the claiming scene told. This time around, in that regard, Leigh didn't leave me wanting. (She even backs it up a bit later so we can relive the teaser from the Wolfe's Hope.)
Jacob emerges from his shower, entering the public portion of his cell, only to find Faith, the lone female of their Breed, awaiting him on his cot. She's his gift, given by their creator, Bainesmith, who intends him to mate the too young woman. He finds little support or guidance from his alpha, Wolfe, imprisoned to his right; nor from Faith's brother, Aiden, housed on his left.
He knows his claiming of Faith was inevitable and that she too desires him. So with that truth, and little other choice, he takes her and marks her forever.
Six years later, after the great escape from the labs, he and Faith meet again for a single mission as Wolfe reclaims Hope. Once that is over, Jacob walks away, again. When they finally reunite for a second time, it's been another six months and Faith has had enough. Definitely my kind of woman- bitchy as hell! She thinks she's just delivering a letter for Wolfe to Jacob, but the letter has a gift attached. And the package is her.
So... I love this wolf Breed. Perfect blend of animal coldness and human hardness. Jacob has that jerk quality women always seem to go for, which I usually loathe, but for him- it works. All other kudos, though, definitely go to Faith. Feisty, deadly, and.. oh yeah, she bites.
4 out of 5 stars.
