According to legend, when humankind is at its most desperate, the goddess Sirius will send three of the most powerful werewolf shifters ever created to save mankind. However, because they are so powerful, they will need a fourth to complete them, to calm them and help them reach their full potential.

Aden, a young were, has been his pack's omega ever since, at the age of fifteen, he didn't shift like everyone else. Caught, reviled, and tortured because of his empathic abilities, he knew on the night he was told to run as sport for the pack hunters that it would end in his death. What he didn't know, however, was that on the same night he'd also meet the love of his life and a pathway to answers, because Aden is far more than just a pack omega.

What begins as a hunt soon becomes a new adventure as Aden discovers that he has not only one, but three destined mates, and his role as lover is far more than trivial. The fate of all humankind rests upon it.

This is exactly the type of book I really enjoy. A well thought out plot that is story driven rather than sex scenes with a weak plot filling the gap between them. The pacing was great and the characters were all well defined including the secondary characters. I really enjoyed this book and will definitely be reading more of this series.

I thought I was burned out on romance books about vampires and werewolves. This novel hit me like a shot of adrenaline. I'm definitely looking forward to the next installment in this series.

This is a well done shifter story that will pull you in from the beginning.  I liked the way the author brings all four men together, but be prepared for some angst.  There were a couple of times I found myself close to tears.  While the story ends well, it is obvious that there is more to tell.  I cannot wait for the second story to show up.

Overall, it was a good story.  I was a bit annoyed with it at times, but that is what made the story a good read.  Looking forward to reading the whole series.

I really enjoyed this book. The plot kept me engaged from beginning to end. There was just enough resolution to make me satisfied but also a cliff hanger to have me anticipate book 2. Very good job of bring the reader into the world created. I loved the varied personalities but how they worked as cohesive unit. I really became attached to Aden. However this continual doubt in his mates all the way up to the end got a little old.
