After a mission goes wrong, Aric Savage is taken prisoner. Half-dead and despairing, he makes a stunning discovery: His Pack-mate Micah Chase, who was reported dead, is a fellow captive. When the Alpha team goes into full-rescue mode, accompanying them is an absolute stunner with sable hair - and a spine of solid steel....
LAPD officer and Psy Dreamwalker Rowan Chase has one priority: her brother Micah's recovery. Still, she can't help but be drawn to Aric, the ruggedly handsome wolf shifter who pleasures her as no man ever has - however fleeting their affair is destined to be. But when Aric's life is endangered, Rowan must ask herself what she's willing to sacrifice in the name of love, for the man fated to be her Bondmate.

"In a genre with werewolves aplenty, Savage Awakening leads the herd with its strong character development and intensity. The story is well told, with powerful, dominant characters. Dark and sexy, it's hard not to fall in love with the Alpha Pack." (Romantic Times)
Great second book to add to the brand new series about sizzling hot and handsome ex Navy SEALS now in a top secret Alpha pack made up of men who are were-shifters of one kind or another and there's Sorcerers and a Sealy Prince too. They are each gifted with a different supernatural power when they were turned which helps as they battle against evil paranormals.
Aric, a were-wolf shifter and member of the Alpha pack, has been captured and experimented on, along with other members of the team, but there's and instant attraction when Rowen (an off duty LAPD cop) stumbles across him whilst she secretly becomes part of the rescue team and it leaves Aric brooding and battling against his mating urges.
A hot and emotionally charged action packed plot with sub plots filled with interesting and amusing characters who all help to invigorate and bring tension and passion to this listen. This series has a similar feel to JRWard's BDB with quick and witty one liners together with the loyalty bonds formed from the 'brotherhood' fellowship.
Looking forward to Black Moon - book released in December - which is Kalen and Mackenzie's story.
Worth a credit? A paranormal/romance fan's dream listen - so that's a definite YES.
I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.
This one does not disappoint. This series interests me so much due to all the different species. It's well written and it holds my interest and it makes me look foward to the next book. If you love the paranormal I'm sure you'll love this. Just make sure you get book 1 first.
Her general plots and characters are not bad, but the immature dialogue can stand improvement. The swearing adolescent macho male werewolf attitude gets tiresome. I like the other characters, and that keeps me coming back for the rest of the series.
No, I do not think any of my friends would tolerate the immature characters.
If the angry macho males would grow up.
Audiobooks are relaxing and 'food for the soul'.
The first part yes; second half, definitely not. Although the book is definitely better than the first, it was predictable at best.
Not really! I thought that I would be able to get into the series, if I tried listening to the second book, given my dismal review of the first one. Unfortunately, it just didn't work for me.
I have always loved to read...but I often find it hard to find the time to sit down with a book. I started listening to audio books not too long ago, and I am hooked! It is hard to limit my listening to just during my comute to and from work! It has become a guilty pleasure of mine! I love just about every type of book, however I am a hopeless romantic to the core! :)
I thought Savage Awakening is just as good if not better than Primal Law in a lot of ways! I really liked how Aric isn't whom he seemed in the first book...he so much more!
As Aric struggles with blaming himself for getting his team in trouble those six months ago, he ends up finding his mate in the sister of one of his fellow pack members...a member that was abducted because of him. Knowing how arrogent Aric was in the first one, I was really surprised to see how tender and unselfish he was in here. The emotion and honesty he shows are truly honorable...and he is definitely a favorite of mine now!
While I like Kirsten Potter a lot, I still like her better with the highlander books I have listened to. In here, I often got confused between the characters, not sure who was talking to who because she doesn't really change voices much. Despite that however, the steamy scenes, which are many :) , were well done!
The characters in this series are only getting better...and I really look forward to the next book, Black Moon, that focuses on Kalen. He goes through a lot in this book, and I am really anxious to see what happens next.
A thick lawn, running water, and a tree to sit under. That's close to heaven!
I think they're about the same and I was disappointed in both. Neith one is near a good as the firsts book
Hard time getting through this book
That the story was easy to follow since I was listening and not reading it myself.
Her attempt at different voices for different characters
Yes, would have liked to but the narration speed that I listened to the book at did not make that possible.
Absolutely!! I didn't think the second book could get any better than the first and it almost exceeded it! I loved every moment. The characters are all so very interesting to me. I also love the humor, I found myself laughing out loud...not good when you're in a public place by yourself...anyway, I love Aric, I love the whole Alpha Pack is just delicious.
In this book, Aric is my favorite, but in the last book Jacks was, so I guess it's whomever the story is focused on. I actually really like Cereal (sp?)--the fey prince, he was a standout character in both the first and this book as well. I like who he seems to be, his innocence is really cute.
She has phenomenal narration skills! She really gets into the characters and literally gives them life, it's awesome.
Yes, and I almost did, but I really needed to go to sleep so I could go to work the next day ;-)
Great book, although I'm concerned about the reviews I've read for the next one..Black Moon...I'll probably buy it anyway because Kalen has also become a favorite character.
Yes, I would definitely recommend this book (and series) to a friend. All in all, this is a very very good series. I like this book because it has a strong female main character who gives as well as she gets. The exchanges between her and Aric are really fun to listen to.
The part I liked best was when she was cloaked and boarded the helicopter on a mission and how she killed the huge evil fae. I also liked the part where she turns into a beautiful sable colored wolf, as well as her banter with the members of the Alpha Team.
Potter's inflections for the the voices of the different characters is very good, even though she could make the rough and tough male voices a little more masculine.
LA Cop Joins the Secret Ops Alpha Team!!
I am so disappointed in this book. The first one was quite promising and I was looking forward to this read. The main story line which carries through both books is good, the characters are likeable, and the reader does a really nice job. Sounds like a great formula for a light read when you don't want to think too much. This book however came completely off the tracks when the author decided to use one sex scene after another to fill pages. On top of that the "love" story in this book followed the exact same formula as the first book and is completely overdone in this genre. Come up with something original already!
The bottom line is that I am not interested enough in the story line to live through the sex and love denial crap to read another one of the books in this series. I would suggest the Jane Yellowrock series if you want something with a lot less sex and a strong heroine who deals in the supernatural.
