TRISTAN’S LYCEUM WOLVES (Immortals of New Orleans #3) by Kym Grosso-a review
ABOUT THE BOOK: Release Date March 28, 2013
Charismatic and powerful Lyceum Wolves’ Alpha, Tristan Livingston, is out for revenge after a devastating attack on his pack. Not only did he survive a building collapse, he orchestrated the rebuild of his chic, state-of-the-art nightclub within a week. Determined to mete out justice, he rescues a beautiful witness who may be the key to helping him find the perpetrators.
Dr. Kalli Williams, dedicated veterinarian, is hiding a secret that endangers not only her own life but the lives of wolves across the country. After being tortured by a savage vampire, she’s reluctantly agrees to help the sexy Alpha in his quest to identify suspects; ones who’d kill her on the spot if they knew she existed. As Kalli places herself in the hands of the dominant wolf, she soon finds she wants nothing more than to submit.
Tristan, committed to ruling his pack as a lone wolf, is inexplicably drawn to the mysterious and enticing woman, who seems more than human, but not quite supernatural. As he discovers her secret, he teaches her the meaning of trust, helping her learn how to be true to her nature. After living a lifetime alone, will he succumb to the visceral need to claim her, acknowledging the soul binding connection between an Alpha and his mate? And will he prevail against the menacing enemy who threatens to destroy Lyceum Wolves?
REVIEW: Tristan’s Lyceum Wolves is the third installment in Kym Grosso’s paranormal Immortals of New Orleans series featuring vampires, wolves, witches and more. Tristan’s story is a wonderful storyline filled with romance, betrayal, heartbreak, and love. The reader was first introduced to Tristan in Kade’s Dark Embrace and his story is well worth the price of admission.
Kalli is our heroine who is much more than human, but her presence in Tristan’s life stirs his wolf into a need that cannot and will not be sated until he has claimed both the woman and his mate. His wolf demands Kalli as its mate but something about Kalli is different-she is hiding in plain site but who and what she is hiding is a mystery. When the truth is finally revealed Tristan (the man) has a difficult time knowing that the woman with whom he is falling in love, is not the woman he was led to believe- and Tristan (the wolf) is more than outraged at the secret she is hiding.
Tristan is the alpha who has earned the respect of his pack as well as other alphas. But when tragedy strikes some of the youngest members of his pack, Tristan is an alpha wolf with a need for revenge-a revenge that may come with a price as the woman he has yet to claim is painfully connected to those who have caused so much sorrow for his pack and his new mate.
Tristan’s connection with Logan (his second in command) is both loving and sensual and as his Beta is welcome in the relationship with Kalli. The Lyceum pack must accept Kalli as Tristan’s mate, and so too, must Kalli accept Logan as part of her new life with the pack alpha. Logan and Tristan have been friends for close to a century and have had each other’s back from day one-they have shared pain and sorrow, as well as the women in their lives, but Kalli is a first for them both. Kalli is Tristan’s mate, but she will become part of Tristan’s friendship with Logan on a visceral level of emotions and love. Her connection with Tristan heightens her awareness of Logan, as he becomes a part of her new life with the pack.
Tristan’s Lyceum Wolves is a well-written, fascinating and sensual look at a powerful alpha who earns the respect of his pack and yearns for the love of his mate. But make no mistake, as the alpha his commands are never to be questioned and any attacks against those he loves, will be dealt with expedience and death. Kym Grosso has written a series that will grab you attention from the very first chapter and Tristan’s Lyceum Wolves is no exception.
