Review: Wolf Pact by Melissa de la Cruz
I am a big fan of anything Melissa writes, and when I discovered that she was writing Wolf Pact I knew I had to read it. What I love about these books is how they all tie in together in some way, Arthur from Serpents Kiss, and Bliss from Blue Bloods.
Lawson, Tala, Malcolm, Edon, and Rafe escape from the underworld into human world and soon find themselves trying to figure out how to survive in their new bodies and a new place. Arthur comes to thier rescue ans offers the ma safe place to stay and also teaches them about things they need to know. Meanwhile Bliss, with her Aunt Jane, are looking for the wolves to get their help.
From the minute I started reading Wolf Pact I was hooked, while it took me a while to actually get into Blue Bloods I had no issues with Wolf Pact and quickly found myself halfway through the book. I found it easy to get to know the characters and loved how they all had their own traits and ways of helping them all survive, although I would not like to be the 'alarm system' for them, that has to be the worst trait. Reading on how they try to adapt to being human and the things they do to survive made them more realistic in my eyes and I quickly formed an attachment to the wolves.
When Bliss joins their small group I enjoyed how she threw a new dynamic to the group and although both sides were reluctant at first to trust each other, when they eventually did, they all worked together like they had been there all the time.
I enjoyed reading about the myths and legends about how the wolves came to be, and getting flashbacks through Bliss's eyes only helped the story more, giving more background and information that was essential to the plot to help it move forward. When Wolf Pact finally came to an end I was sad to see it end, and although it ends at a nice place, setting it up nicely for book two, there is no major cliffhanger that will forever be there until you read book two (and you will want to read it), it ended perfectly.
