Description:

Thea Quinn has no idea what she is. All she knows is that her abilities have been a plague upon her life since she was a child. After years of suffering at the hands of a megalomaniac, Thea escaped and has been on the run ever since.

The leadership and protection of his pack are of the utmost importance to Conall MacLennan, Alpha and Chief of Clan MacLennan, the last werewolf pack in Scotland. Which is why watching his sister slowly die of a lycanthropic disease is emotional torture. When Conall is approached by a businessman who offers a cure for his sister in exchange for the use of Conall’s rare tracking ability, Conall forges an unbreakable contract with him. He has to find and retrieve the key to the cure: dangerous murderer, Thea Quinn.

Thea’s attempts to evade the ruthless werewolf are not only thwarted by the Alpha, but by outside dangers. With no choice but to rely on one another for survival, truths are revealed, intensifying a passionate connection they both fight to resist. At war with themselves and each other, Conall and Thea’s journey to Scotland forces them to face a heartrending choice between love and betrayal.

Review:

I bought this last year as I'm a big fan of Samantha Young's books.

This starts with Thea in Hungary - at least, I think it's Hungary, she travels around Europe a lot in this book - and helping to save a shopkeeper who is being held up at gunpoint. In doing so, she reveals her powers to the attacker which sends him fleeing in fright and Thea knows it will send a big signal to the man who's been chasing her for the last six years on her whereabouts. We then jump to Scotland where Conall is about to accept a mating bond with an American pack so they can become allies but they're interrupted by an older man wanting Conall to track down Thea in Europe and bring her back to him, stating that Thea's blood will cure Conall's ill sister.

Werewolves are not my favourite supe to read about. I'm more a vampire girl, myself. But as this was by Sam Young and as a fan, I thought I'd give this a go. 

I did like this, we got taken on a wild road trip across Europe meeting a variety of characters and learning about the creation of vampires, werewolves and about the fae. 

I liked that Thea was this literal kick-arse unknown supernatural for a lot of the book. She had so many amazing abilities and managed to subdue almost every enemy without help. Conall was a typical Alpha, protective, strong and didn't take no crap from anyone. He was equally as deadly as Thea.

The final showdown between Thea and her tormentor was quite...exciting, as in I'm so glad she had the chance and that she pulled it off. He really wasn't a nice guy and I cheered when Thea came out on top. I'm glad she finally got to live in peace.

I may continue this series in the future as I've seen that they don't all revolve around werewolves.
