WOLF’S FALL ( Alpha Pack #6) by JD Tyler
ABOUT THE BOOK: Release Date December 2, 2014
A top secret team of wolf shifters, the Alpha Pack are former Navy SEALS that use their Psy powers to take on the world’s greatest predators. But while each member is loyal to the pack, it can be hard to deny the call of desire…
Still tormented by his recent captivity, Alpha Pack commander Nick Westfall isn’t sure he’s fit to lead—especially when he meets the one woman he can’t claim without reliving the torture he endured at the hands of a rogue vampire.
Vampire princess Calla Shaw has seen her own share of heartbreak, but she can tell that the wild attraction she and Nick feel for each other could turn into something significant—if only he’d let it. But Calla isn’t about to give up on her mate without a fight.
Time is running out, not only for Nick to claim his mate, but for Calla and her coven. A vampire war is on the horizon, one the Alpha Pack can’t hope to win if their leader can’t pull himself back from the abyss.
REVIEW: WOLF’S FALL is the sixth installment in JD Tyler’s contemporary, adult Alpha Pack paranormal romance series focusing on a top secret team of wolf shifters-The Alpha Pack. The series history reveals that a group of psychic Navy Seals had been biologically enhanced and experimentally forced into a lifestyle not of their choosing, waking to a new world as shifters and wolves. Finding there way back, they will come under the command of Nick Westfall and his Pack.
WOLF’S FALL is Alpha Pack Commander Nick Westfall and vampire princess Calla Shaw’s storyline. Although this is the sixth book in the series, it can be read as a stand alone without too much difficulty. Any important information is imparted where necessary. JD Tyler provides some history and pertinent background information as the story develops.
Nick is a reluctant commander. He is tired, depressed and as leader of the Alpha Pack he sees himself as a failure. Nick suffers from PTSD-held prisoner and tortured, years earlier, by a sadistic vampire-Nick is broken and damaged. He knows Calla is his mate but losing his first mate to the vampire who destroyed his life, Nick refuses to accept and claim Calla as his own. To complicate matters Nick is reluctant to allow Calla to feed from his vein as it brings back too many horrific and shameful memories.
The relationship between Calla and Nick is one of immediate attraction. Calla and Nick know that each is the other’s mate but Nick’s reluctance to accept Calla and the encroaching vampire war finds our couple teaming together to save both the coven and the Pack. Both Calla and Nick have previously loved and lost; finding new mates is as much a surprise to both. The sex scenes are intimate, seductive and energetic.
Told from third person point of view, the storyline follows a war on the horizon. Vampires and werewolves will be forced to work together to save the people that they know and love but a powerful unknown foe and a coven of rogue vampires has targeted Nick, Calla and Calla’s brother Prince Tarron for destruction. Several wolves and vampires will face their mortality in the ensuing battle. JD Tyler’s storylines consist of an ensemble cast of characters including wolves, vampires, jinn, sorcerers, shifters and more; many of the previous storyline couples play a secondary role throughout the premise and building story.
My only complaint is the number of times our hero (and other Alpha Pack storyline heroes) must face the possibility of death. For a leader and alpha Nick seems powerless against most of his enemies; he lays injured, tortured or dying on numerous occasions and his fellow warriors appear to face their mortality just as often (in this book and others). I think this team of former Navy Seals is in need of some more combat training. 😉 Also, if a man has black hair and dark eyes, why would he shift into a white wolf? Would it not make sense that the hair color in human form match the color of the shifter wolf coat? Hmmmmm !
JD Tyler’s world of shifters and vampires is full of action, suspense, romance and love. The characters are colorful, fallible, passionate and controversial. The Alpha Pack soldiers are honorable warriors who are willing to die to protect their leader and friends. Vampires are a new addition to the series-introduced in book five Cole’s Redemption-and with it comes a new direction for the storylines.
