Cheryl’s Review

This is the second in the Alpha’s Warlock series, which follows the budding relationship between a Warlock (Terry) and a Werewolf (Clyde). As usual, the path of their love doesn’t run smooth.

In Book #1, Cursed, Terry died and was reborn. Still reeling from the shock, Terry is fighting his own revelations – that everything he thought he knew about himself was a lie – as well as the werewolf pack who want him dead. Clyde is not entirely sure he buys Terry’s explanations and Terry has little to give because, having lost his false memories he’s struggling to find the true ones. “A convenient story”, but sadly true.

Terry heads off to find himself while Clyde remains to persuade the pack not to hunt Terry down and tear him to pieces. Fortunately (oh no, sorry, massively unfortunately) a situation arises that takes his mind off missing Terry. A shapeshifter is on the loose and out for blood. If they can’t track him down before the full moon it’s likely he’ll wipe out the whole pack. Except he doesn’t believe in playing fair, so why wait for the moon when he can make the moon come to him?

Terry digs up some information he wished he hadn’t, and picks up a young vampire who insists on being his “protector” after being saved from some witches, who had issues about a cat.

There were moments in the first book, where I felt big chunks of the story were skipped over. There just wasn’t enough space in a novella to explore them properly. This time, I feel that greater care has been taken to unroll things more gradually and logically. There’s just as much, if not more to fit into the pages, indeed there are two entirely separate story threads going on at the same time. However, the author has done a fantastic job of weaving them together and it’s all much more cohesive.

I’m also pleased to note that the preachiness I felt in book one has been toned right down. There were one or two moments when emotion teetered on the edge of preaching but, on the whole it stayed real.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. There are some who might find it a little too simple. Despite the two storylines there’s no great complexity, and possibly sometimes the writing is naïve, but the characters are engaging, the story is smooth and interesting, and whilst leaving a lot of questions unanswered and our heroes certainly not out of danger, the ending is satisfying and leaves you wanting more without tearing your hair out over a cliff-hanger. The villains are dead and the stage is set for the next bad guy, which might even be Terry himself.

This is a simple little book, unpretentious and sweet. It’s easy to read and the ideal accompaniment to coffee for anyone who likes paranormal/shifter books with a bit of weight and a couple of nice twists. I, for one, hope for quite a few more instalments in this delightful series.

Clyde Barrington is a werewolf with a curse on his head. Every night, he shifts from human to wolf and lives the life of a lonely predator, never fully accepted by his pack. When he saves a handsome stranger from a fire, everything changes.

In a world divided by the ancient feud between werewolves and warlocks, Clyde and Terry must learn to trust each other. When wolves start to disappear, their bond is tested by the fear of a pack now balanced on the edge of destruction.

Amidst a web of lies, deceits and betrayals, Clyde must decide where his loyalties lie, and choose between a forbidden love and the ties that bind him to his brothers. Is Terry an enemy to the pack, or the saviour that will lead them out of the darkness?
