After the devastating loss of his father, Gene Harris has become alpha of his werewolf pack. He has been training for this his entire life. But nothing could have prepared him for the brewing war, or the beautiful alpha female, Talia. Gene is instantly drawn to the mesmerizing she-wolf. He wants to trust Talia, but it's hard to trust anyone--especially when they are related to your adversary. Enemies are everywhere, and Gene must fight to protect his pack.
Natalia 'Talia' Alvarez grew up away from the pack. Talia's first encounter with werewolves was when she was abducted and taken prisoner by her grandfather. This experience leaves her weary of her werewolf heritage and unable to trust her rescuers. As a new mother protecting her son is her first priority. Talia knows her only chance at freedom is to team up with Gene. Talia finds herself falling for the alpha as they begin to work together. The thought of trusting Gene terrifies her, and she can't help but wonder if he will betray her too.
Into the Unknown is the second book in the Werewolf Wars Series.
This book took off right where the first one, Out of the Shadows, ended. I was already hooked by the first book so I dove right in. This is Gene and Talia's story. Gene is a strong alpha that is trying to keep everything together as a war is brewing, while Talia is also a strong alpha in her own right, but has been horrifically abused. She is understandably angry and mistrustful. What made it not uncomfortable to read was Ms. Shaw showing the steel backbone that Talia has, letting you know she will get through it while showing the wisdom and compassion in Gene to be there when she needs him. When tragedy hits midway through the book, the spirit of the pack is only strengthened. The author also kept the characters from the first book, Lark and Devon, as vital participants so you could see them grow as well. Cannot wait to read where this war leads in June of 2014 with the new book, Finding Our Way.
