Cassius, Alpha of Sutter Butte, leads the most ruthless and dangerous pack in the United States. Misfits, castoffs, and forgotten wolves, they rose to create a pack more than a century ago in utter defiance of the order of the day. Seen as pitiless and cruel, Cassius wants more for his people than a yearly bloodbath as they fight for a better spot in the pecking order. To change his pack means to change himself, and he will find rebellion on all sides, not to mention from his own defiant heart.
Sovvan Stark, Omega of Delta Crescent, lives a cherished, beloved life in the center of her pack–a delicate and hard won balance. Though she is not the only Omega, she is the most experienced with the tremors of pack upset when power shifts from Alpha to Alpha. When her Alpha approaches her about Sutter Butte’s request, Sovvan considers the matter for several months. While she might hold within her the key to helping the Sutter Butte Alpha, the undertaking could very well kill her.
My Review: Each time I read one of Heather Long books, the better I am getting to love how she brings to life two characters. Cassius was a ruthless leader. Not because he wanted to be, but; because he had to be. However, as the years pass. Cassius knew that his pack has earned and deserved more than what they have been given, that of a yearly bloodbath. So to better the life for his pack and himself, he knew that changes must be made. So he requested the assistance of Sovvan Stark, Omega of Delta Crescent.
Once Sovvan arrive at Sutter Butte turbulence among the Sutter Butte pack started to occur and the closer that the reaping gets the worse the discontent became.
Desert Wolf was a truly magnificent book from start to finish. The characters are interesting and well written. You want to know when a book is good. It’s when you laugh when the characters are amused and you cry when the characters are miserable. Well; Desert Wolf is that good. I felt every emotion the characters were feeling. And when I turned the last virtual page it left me craving more.
Reserve your copy of Desert Wolf you will be thankful that you did.
