Spiral of Need by Suzanne Wright ~ Review

Source:  Purchased audiobook

Ally Marshall isn’t just a wolf shifter — she’s a Seer.

But a girl doesn’t exactly need special powers to know that Derren Hudson despises her entire kind. Disdain practically rolls off the Beta of the Mercury Pack . . . disdain mixed with a healthy dose of desire. And no matter how much the ruggedly handsome male appeals to her, this is one call of the wild she’s determined to ignore.

After one betrayal too many, Derren doesn’t have much use for Seers — except for Ally.

Forced into acting as her protector, he finds himself intensely and passionately drawn to the woman who incites his primal instinct to claim.

And when enemies target the pack, Ally’s gift may be just what the Mercury Pack needs.

Can he put his distrust aside, or will he force himself to turn his back on the one woman who makes his inner beast howl?


I read the first book in the original series and it was just okay.  I enjoyed this one more.

I really liked the characters better in this spin-off series.  Derren and Ally's dominance juggling was much more agreeable than the same type of issue was in Feral Sins.  I liked both of them.  Derren is the dark and brooding type.  He was wrongly accused as a young man and jailed.  That event changed him and molded who he is.  He doesn't believe he'll ever find or even recognize his mate.  Responsibility is something he doesn't want but he stands up to it anyway.  And he owes an old friend a favor.  So he does what he has to.

Ally is the kind of strong kind of women I can get behind.  She's funny and strong but she cares.  She allows that care to temper her need to dominate and the meanness that some strong women are portrayed as.  She doesn't fight through her love.  And she does love Derren.  I enjoyed how she treated him before he could even stand her.  It was perfect.

The story was interesting.  I enjoyed the world and how the story is not dependent on the love story.  There was more than that and I really enjoyed the story continuing as it tied up every little piece of the story.  

Not as big of fan of this narrator.  She was okay but she has this dramatic tone to some of her words that annoyed me.  It eased as the book went on.

I wouldn't mind reading more of this series but I don't want another one like Feral Sins so I probably won't.
