Publisher's Summary

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.

Critic Reviews

"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 Series!

Any additional comments?

I came across the Alpha Pack Series looking for something similar to Black Dagger Brotherhood or The Midnight Breed Series (loved both). If you like either of these, Alpha Pack might be worth checking out. J.D. Tyler has been a pleasant surprise. I really enjoy her writing style and the story moves along at a rapid pace. I love the relationships between the pack members as well as their bondmates. And who doesn't love wereshifters? In Savage Awakening, Aric seems arrogant and abrasive but that's not who he really is. He blames himself for an attack on his pack and, in a sad turn of events, is captured and tortured, and feels as though his pack has turned their backs on him. Rowan is a LAPD officer searching for her missing brother (who is actually one of the pack members) when she finds Aric being held at the same facility. There is an instant attraction between the two and the sparks start to fly. As always, Kirsten Potter does a great job with narration. I typically prefer male narrators (such as Jim Frangione or Phil Gigante) but Kirsten does such a good job that I simply get lost in the story. She has become one of my favorite narrators.

Really liking this series!

Just finished this book and am on to the next, although I'll being reading instead of listening. Not out on audio yet. Read the ebook novella "Black Magic" before this one though, as it refers now and then to that book, with Kalen and Mac. This was another good story of the Alpha Pack of wereshifters. It's an interesting love story, in an ongoing story about the special ops group called Alpha Pack. They are trying to shut down a group, that is experimenting in making super soldiers, but mainly just into torture and murder of good people. This book gets us deeper into understanding what's going on, and we find out who's in charge of the bad guys. Leading us into the next book. It's not the Black Dagger Brotherhood, but if you like that series, then give this one a try. It has the same kind of feel to it, with love stories happening within an ongoing crusade. You'll love the characters.

Better than Book #1

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

good series, book #1 took too much of the story setting the stage for this series. #2 gets into the story solid.

What did you like best about this story?

strong heroine and Eric is such a hunk

What does Kirsten Potter bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

she has a great male's voice which helps this series a great deal

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Micah tells his sister they "hurt him" "really hurt him"

Any additional comments?

Makes me want to get bitten by these wolves!!

Would you listen to Savage Awakening again? Why?

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.

Who was your favorite character and why?

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.

What does Kirsten Potter bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She has phenomenal narration skills! She really gets into the characters and literally gives them life, it's awesome.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, and I almost did, but I really needed to go to sleep so I could go to work the next day ;-)

Any additional comments?

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.

GREAT BOOK!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

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.

What did you like best about this story?

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.<br/>

What does Kirsten Potter bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

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.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

LA Cop Joins the Secret Ops Alpha Team!!
