Not even sorry. I luuuuuuurv me some werewolves . . . .
Alright alright – here’s a plot summary. (If you’ve read much werewolf stuff you’ll probably recognize it.) Ally is a lone wolf (*hyuck hyuck*). Orphaned as a child she was adopted by a “foster family” who raised her and has spent her adult years moving from pack to pack. Due to a serious case of sour grapes with the Beta female of her current pack, it’s time for Ally to move on – and due to a favor owed by Mercury Pack member Derren to Ally’s foster brother Cain, it’s up to his pack to take her in and offer her protection until Cain is released from prison. There’s only one problem – Ally is not only a shifter, but also a “Seer” – and Derren has a biiiiiiig problem with Seers. You know what that means, right?????
Exactly. And then . . .
If you’re in to alpha males (well, technically he’s a Beta – but he likes to be in charge when it comes to quality time in the sack) and seriously taking it to pound town this one will probably be right up your alley. The plot was interesting and although I figured out early on who it was who was up to no good it held my interest. Spiral of Need is also apparently a spin-off from a previous series, but there were enough snippets given regarding prior characters/scenarios that I never felt out of the mix. And as familiar as the love/hate werewolf storyline was, there were a couple of new things for me – like a gay werewolf couple. Unfortunately they were only on screen for about two pages and were only mentioned due to their love for interior decorating (way to really break the stereotype there Suzanne Wright), but at least it was acknowledged that not all werewolves would be hetero. I also learned about the most sacred gift a female were can give to her mate . . .
Wow. Didn’t expect that.
Anyway, if you’re like me and use the classification “Because He Looks Like A Werewolf” as a descriptor when speaking to your significant other, you should probably check this out. Examples of the aforementioned terminology are as follows:
Husband: What are you watching?
Me: Teen Wolf . . .
Husband: Good Christ, those boys are like 12!
Me: *too busy drooling to speak*
Husband: Oh, you’re going to watch Big Brother with me and the kids?
Me: Yeah, Austin looks like he could be a werewolf . . . .
Husband: You’ve been listening to The Killers a lot lately.
Me: Yeah, Brandon Flowers looks like a very metrosexual werewolf . . .
Husband: You’re going to watch the Royals game?!?!?!?!
Me: They’re playing the Orioles. Manny Machado looks like a baby werewolf . . .
Husband: Honey that Volkswagen commercial with the werewolf-looking-mofo is on again.
Me: BEST. HUSBAND. EVER!!!!!
