Mack might be, to all intents and purposes, a normal looking human, but she lives with a pack of shapeshifters in Cornwall in rural England after being dumped there by her mother when she was just a young child. She desperately wants to be accepted by her surrogate family, not least because a lot of them hate her for merely being human, but for some reason her blood just won’t allow the transformation to occur.

With a terrible temper to match her fiery red hair, Mack is extraordinarily useful in a fight, and when her pack alpha is brutally and abruptly murdered, she swears vengeance. Unfortunately, his murder also draws in the Brethren – the leaders of the shapeshifter world – who will slaughter everyone in Mack’s small rural pack if they discover her true identity. Unfortunately Corrigan, the green-eyed muscle-bound Lord Alpha of the Brethren, doesn’t let much slip by him…


Mack was brought to the Cornish pack by her mother when she was very young. The pack has been put under a spell to never tell a soul about Mack’s lack of shifterness.

After the Cornish pack’s alpha is murdered, Mack wants revenge. But one problem. The Brethren are alerted and are coming. They can’t know about Mack’s real identity. But that may be the least of Mack’s problem.

I liked the story. I added the second book to my TBR list. I will continue on with it. As of right now I’ve got a stock pile of books I need to get to before I move on with this one.
