Publisher's Summary

I knew I wanted her the first time I saw her. Only problem? She can’t be my mate.

I’m a son of a traitor and former Alpha, and I know it’s the legacy people see.

But I must be the Alpha of my Pack and protect them from the new threat to our world: Vampires.Valac and the others are still in the shadows, and we must find their lairs before we lose more than we already have.

Only every time the enemy attacks, Skye puts herself in jeopardy. I’m the dominant wolf, but she’s the one with the most to lose.

She’s the Pack princess. The daughter of legends.

And I know she’s not my mate.

But I want her. I need her. And now I must convince my wolf. Or break the most sacred rules of the moon goddess.

Again.

Amazing Read

I absolutely loved reading Chase and Skye's story. The way it just grabbed me from page 1 and never let go. Carrie Ann Ryan has done it again with this one. I loved the plot and story line and characters and cant wait to read this again and again.

I love how the narrators did with this story. Aiden Snow and Kitt Swan did such an amazing job with the narration that I could listen to the story over and over again and Carrie Ann keeps her readers engaged from start to finish.

Steamy and captivating listen!

I recently had the opportunity to listen to the audiobook of Hunted in Darkness by Carrie Ann Ryan. This is the second book in the Aspen Pack series and I was so excited to dive in. I am loving this series so much. Narrated by Aiden Snow and Kit Swann, they bring Chase and Skye’s story to life. They each carry the weight of the world. Chase is an alpha trying to be what his pack needs after everything they have been through. He is strong and determined, even as he questions himself at every turn. Skye comes from a very important family and is trying to find her place. Together they shared some crazy chemistry and I loved how they stood for each other. There was so much going on around them and against them, but they were amazing together. It took them a bit to see what we could see all along. I loved their journey!

Happy listening!

Fated mates are not as easy to find anymore

When you dive into the paranormal world of shifters you are often met with the concept of fated mates. But when the world has been broken and shifted under these packs, the mating bonds may have changed again. This story of Chase and Skye as they work together to fight this new threat to their packs and work to bridge the gaps and build up their broken worlds they are also fighting some feelings too.
I loved how Carrie Ann Ryan bridges the gap of the shifter world with the need for touch and the human world with uncertainty of love, without the surety of a fated mate pull.
Getting to watch Chase as he stands his ground and finds his footing as an Alpha after so much has happened was something special on its own.
It is really no surprise to me that these two amazing narrators (Aiden Snow and Kit Swann) have brought this story to life in such a fantatic way. Their ability to bring these characters to life with full emotion was a wonderous experience.

Case and Skye

Haunted in Darkness is the second book of the Aspen Pack series. This book is about Alpha Chase Leyne and Skye Anderson. The Aspen pack is still trying to build itself up from the last alpha who had murdered most of the pack as well as fight off the new threat that has targeted them and all other wolves. Chase is trying his best to be what his pack needs but has many insecurities as it was his father who had done the damage they are trying to build from. Patricia “Skye” Anderson is the Jameson pack princess but not ranking and feels like her wolf is broken because it doesn’t act like how it is supposed to. They are both attracted to each other but know that they are not mates and can only have fun together until they find their mates.
This book has great relationships between packs, friends, and family. It has suspense, and plenty of action. The only thing that I didn’t really like was that it felt over done being reminded constantly that they were not mates.
I did listen to the Audible for this book and the voice actors did an amazing job bringing this world to life.
It can be read as a standalone, but I would recommend reading the first book to understand more of the vampire aspect of what’s going on.

The Aspen Pack continues...

While this book can be read as a standalone, it helps newbies like me to the fantasy/paranormal world to start from book 1. I think I'm starting to get the premise, but my knowledge of shifters, alphas, and all that is still at the mediocre level. What I did get is that Chase is the alpha of the Aspen Pack. Skye is part of the Redwood Pack. Chase and Skye aren't mated, but they have chemistry. Chase labels Skye as Gamma, but Skye doesn't agree. If I understood correctly, their packs are working together to get rid of the riff raff vampires who are wreaking havoc in the realm. Regardless, Chase and Skye get their HEA, but not before they have to defend their packs. While this type of book is not my usual cup of tea, the narrators Lee Samuels and Summer Morton, kept me hooked into the story. They did an amazing job of bringing the characters and story to life.

I received a complimentary copy of the audiobook at my request and voluntarily left this review.

Loved Chase and Skye

Chase is the Alpha of the Aspen pack. Skye is the granddaughter of the former Alpha of the Redwood pack. She is a dominant but doesn’t have a place in the hierarchy of her pack. She feels something is wrong with her wolf as she can meet the eyes of wolves more dominant then she is and she shouldn’t be able to do that. Chase feels he needs to prove himself since his father almost destroyed their pack. He was locked away from them and feels he should have been there for them. He always feels that when they look at him they see Blade. These two get thrown together a bit as Skye is training with some of the Aspen pack so she is in the den a lot. They both have an attraction to each other and decide to act on it till there true mated come along. These two are so well paired for each other. Loved the story and the narrators did a fantastic job with the two of them.

Hunted in Darkness

As the vampire threat against the wolves continues. Chase and Skye work together to try to win the fight. Both Skye and Chase have their own demons to deal with but find comfort in each other while they wait to find their true mates. Little do they know what is in store for them and how it will change their lives.
Their story is a good listen. It is full of ups and downs as the vampire threat becomes stronger. The two may start out with an innocent deal to enjoy each other’s company, needing that touch but soon it becomes more. As Chase and Skye find their way the pack must also deal with the threat and figure out just who will help and who will hinder. I enjoyed the love and the camaraderie in this story. There is strength and emotion throughout the book and as I finish this book, I am already eager to return to this world for the next one. Narrators Aiden Snow and Kit Swann do a good job of brining these characters and world to life, keeping the listener engaged in the story.

Chase and Skye

“𝙒𝙚 𝙛𝙤𝙪𝙣𝙙 𝙚𝙖𝙘𝙝 𝙤𝙩𝙝𝙚𝙧 𝙬𝙝𝙚𝙣 𝙞𝙩 𝙢𝙖𝙩𝙩𝙚𝙧𝙚𝙙. 𝙒𝙚 𝙬𝙞𝙡𝙡 𝙖𝙡𝙬𝙖𝙮𝙨 𝙝𝙖𝙫𝙚 𝙚𝙖𝙘𝙝 𝙤𝙩𝙝𝙚𝙧. 𝙄’𝙡𝙡 𝙨𝙖𝙫𝙚 𝙮𝙤𝙪 𝙟𝙪𝙨𝙩 𝙖𝙨 𝙮𝙤𝙪’𝙡𝙡 𝙨𝙖𝙫𝙚 𝙢𝙚."

Hunted in Darkness by Carrie Ann Ryan is Chase and Skye's story and the second book in the Aspen Pack series.

Chase and Skye are from different packs but have always been around each other. Chase swore they were not each other's mates due to a prophecy, but everything snaps into place when their lives are in danger.

Chase and Skye have an undeniable pull to each other and their chemistry is off the charts. Chase's past is one of heartbreak and so much sorrow. Skye, although extremely strong, is so lost. The two of them together balance each other out.

The Aspen Pack books grab you from the beginning and keeps you intrigued right into the next book. Although these technically can be read as standalones, I highly recommend they be read in order to get the entire story. I can not wait for the next book in the series.

Aiden Snow and Kit Swann did a great job bringing the characters and story to life.

Wow

Carrie Ann Ryan how do you keep doing this to me? I couldn’t listen to this fast enough, the suspense that this book created was so very enjoyable.

The characters were well written and enjoyable, the way the book progressed had me doubting this so much but then the ending happened and oh it was so worth every second. I loved this so much

this book ripped my heart out, and I loved it


Because while we love the two main characters - they're not fated mates. They can have fun and scratch that itch and even love each other....but they're not fated mates. What did you do to me Carrie Ann Ryan? I was crying thinking they either ended a third or to find the ones for them...then they did and I'm sorry I misjudged you. Loved this book, the second in this series and I love seeing a glimpse of how the other generation has been and how the packs are now. Loved it
