Reviewette - Pack by Jeaniene Frost

Anthology: The Mammoth Book of Paranormal Romance
Story: 14 of 24
Pages: 32
Romance Featured: Werewolves
Opening Line: “I knew I was being hunted before I heard the growl.”

Marlee is on a camping trip in Yellowstone National Park, hiking alone when she is attacked and bitten by wolves. Fully expecting to be die, Marlee is suddenly rescued by a naked man, but not before hearing what sounds like speech from one of the wolves.

Awaking in a rustic cabin, Marlee is introduced to Daniel the Pack enforcer and eventually to the local werewolf community. Her choices are limited, she has knowledge of the existence of werewolves now so she must join the pack or be killed.

Pack is a powerful story that explores Marlee’s emotional journey as she confronts the loss of her old life, family and friends and confronts her new reality – life as a werewolf and member of the Pack. All of this is complicated by her growing attraction to Daniel. While the concept of finding one’s mate is a frequently used trope in paranormal romance this is a particularly deft handling of the theme.

  1. Sounds a bit like what happened to Kitty in Carrie Vaughn's series but they sound like a much better type of pack! I believe Jeaniene Frost may be one of the next paranormal authors I pick up...

  2. Now that you point it out Lady_tink I see the similarity. And yes this is a more civilized pack.
