REVIEW: LOGAN’S ACADIAN WOLVES is the fourth storyline in Kym Grosso’s Immortals of New Orleans contemporary paranormal series. This is Logan Reynaud and Wynter Ryan’s story. Although this is part of a series, it can be read as a stand alone without too much difficulty. Kym references a few of the previous storyline characters but only when their presence or mention is significant to the current book and in this, we learn a little more history to the how and whys.
Logan Reynaud is a new alpha with a new pack.With the recent murder of his best friend and Alpha Marcel, Logan takes over the New Orleans Alpha position. Having to prove himself worthy, Logan will meet each challenge to his alphahood head on. But finding a battered, bleeding and seemingly human female will challenge Logan in more ways than one. There is something about Wynter Ryan that calls to Logan’s internal wolf and no one, including Wynter, knows the truth about what is happening. Logan has visions and his latest will prove personally prophetic for both.
Wynter is a scientist. Her latest ‘project’ found Wynter a virtual prisoner of a group of vampires and upon her escape she discovered that life with the New Orlean’s pack was trading one prison for another-a gilded cage is still a cage. Growing up in the New York pack, Wynter knew a thing or two about shifting wolves, but she had always been protected by the alpha.
The relationship between Logan and Wynter (in the beginning) is tenuous at best. She is a human female who challenges Logan at every turn but there is also something different about Wynter and it is the differences that will call to Logan’s wolf. The sexual tension pulls the reader into a forbidden romance when the pack Alpha demands submission from the woman who would one day be his mate-if she can survive her own set of challenges.
Logan’s Acadian Wolves follows Logan, Wynter and Dimitri (Logan’s Beta) as they try to uncover the who and why behind Wynter’s imprisonment; the mysterious messages; and the threats against the pack. This is also a story that will keep you guessing as to the true identity of the perpetrator-right until the very end.
Kym Grosso brings together a fascinating world of wolf shifters, vampires and scientific research in a story about the ultimate betrayal and revenge. The characters are colorful and real; you can feel the love for their Alpha but you can also sense that something is not quite right. Logan will meet his ultimate challenge and in the end, it is one fight he will not win.
The Immortals of New Orleans is a series that will call to all lovers of the paranormal genre.
