Chase the Darkness by J. D. Tyler ~ Review & Giveaway

Source:  Received a finished copy from the publisher in exchange or a fair and honest review.

The author of Wolf’s Fall returns with her “hot and to die for”* Alpha Pack—a top-secret band of Navy SEALs with Psy powers and shifter prowess whose dangerous missions sometimes require a more intimate call to duty…

Believed dead by his Pack mates, Micah Chase, a wolf shifter and Dreamwalker, was held captive for months, subject to tortures that left him physically scarred and emotionally unsettled.

Now under the care of the Alpha Pack’s doctors, he’s been prescribed an experimental healing drug, but he still can’t shake the nightmares. Even more damning is that Micah’s problems pose a danger to his team, and if he doesn’t get himself under control, they’ll all suffer a terrible fate.

There is a key to his salvation. Jacee is a beautiful coyote shifter, and though her kind is hated, she’s falling in love with a man whose very future is in her hands. Together they’ll face his personal demons as well as a deadly enemy—and for both of them desire has never come with such risk.

This is the third book I've read in this series and this is book seven.  That means they can be read out of order.

I'm a big paranormal shifter reader.  It's always been a favorite of mine.  So when I saw this one come up, I jumped on it.  As a matter of fact, I read it between books I had on my schedule the day it arrived!

I really enjoyed this world in Cole's Redemption (book 5) and Wolf's Fall (book 6).  I would love to find the time to go back and read the first four books.  It's a great world.  This pack of shifters (mostly wolfs) are a black ops government group designed to protect the humans from the paranormal un-friendlies out there.  AND they each have phy gifts that make things interesting.  Plus there are other paranormal creatures thrown into the mix.   Anything can happen in this world.

Micah is still recovering from the horror show he was rescued from a few months back.  The nightmares are unsettling and difficult but there are even bigger issues with his health.  He feels like a broken wolf that can't offer anyone much.  He's got scars to his once model looks and is only hanging on to a thread emotionally.  But when his wolf scents his true bondmate, he still reacts.  She's gorgeous and he can't see what she will see in him.  Her coyote doesn't see it that way.

Jacee has lost everything.  Being a waitress at the local bar and tending her garden are all she has.  She has no pack.  She has no family.  She hides what she is.  And it's lonely.  When she reacts to the big wolf, there's no turning back for her.  But there are so many issues to work through.  It's not an easy journey for these two.

I actually like the whole insta-love thing that happens when it's a shifter scenting their mate.  And both of these guys needed the other so much.  I'm not sure either would have ever found out just how much if it wasn't for the bond thing.

Oh, and there is this little matter of a shifter that's gone cray cray and is after Micah.  That made things interesting.  Dude was a total creeper.  

I really enjoyed how this story played out.  It had a great amount of issues to resolve and they didn't all get done at once.  That kept the story flowing nicely.  Throw in some of the characters I knew from the last two books and I just read and read.  

If you love shifter stories and haven't read any of this one, it's a great one to pick up.  You can read them stand alone but I think you'll enjoy them more if you read them in order.  If you've followed this series, you'll want more for sure.

  1. This one was on pre-order for me. Hoping to read it this week. So happy that you like it.

  2. I'm in need of a "sweet-ish" shifter series... do you think this might work? I haven't read any of her books but the way you talk, I'd love to try!!!!

    1. Sweet isn't really a word I would use to describe it. It is a great shifter series though.

    2. Shifter :) thanks for answering my question if they can be read out of order. Sounds like a great series

  3. shiiiiiiifters :) thanks for sharing!

  4. shifter. I have trouble getting over the whole being dead thing.

  5. That's a tough choice. My first love of paranormal reads has always been vampires but I've been leaning more towards shifters in the past few years so I'll go with shifters!

  6. Depends on my mood. I just love a great story! Thanks for the chance!

  7. Shifter, but love to read about vampires also. Love this series!

  8. Im more into shifters, not that I mind vamps but just prefer the shifters more!

  9. I love both, it just depends on what I've been reading. I have to change it up every once in awhile.
