When his wolf-dog goes from furry to beautiful girl in 2.7 seconds, 17-year-old Kia doesn’t believe it. Arii’s been recruited to bring Kia home, back to her realm, where werewolves are real, the supernatural exists, and tension between the two wolf packs is threatening to erupt into a full-scale war. With his father missing, Kia is the rightful heir and without an Alpha’s power behind them, their pack is defenseless in the face of an oncoming battle.

Kia has spent his entire life being a wallflower—he’s not leader material, but he’s not given a choice. Stolen away from all he knows, he’s thrust into a world where rank is dictated by the color of your eyes and where the light of the full moon transforms you into a powerful beast. All Kia wants is to go home, where his only worry is not flunking calculus.

With the help of his new-found friends, he soon realizes that the only way to return to the real world is to end the war—but not everyone wants Kia to succeed, and as he starts to enjoy his awakening confidence as a leader and he falls deeper in love with Arii, he starts to doubt if he wants to go back at all…

My Take:

Ever wonder if or when you had the nerve to go and talk to a girl, and when you do she likes you back and makes you tongue tied. For Kia having a crush on a girl is normal for any teenager, but when sad girl turns into a wolf normal doesn't even begin to cover it. Especially when she says he needs to return with her and become alpha of the pack yeah life just got a little weird for Kia, to think today he thought would be nice because he was going to talk to a girl. Boy was he wrong, never the idea of him being a wolf ever crossed his mind and to boot his father is or was an alpha. What Kia understands is that the stories his father told him when he was a boy, became reality when Arii came and turned into the thing he never thought was possible, turned out to be true and very real. Him a decedent of a wolf pack, yeah right and pigs fly through the night.

He knows he isn't that and doesn't want to go at all because that would mean he would be leaving his family so he made up his mind. Arii left and that was that or so he thought, turned out cell phones can lead to trouble and with one message Kia finds himself in the last place he ever thought he see. The tribe captured him and of course want him to become leader of the pack. If your captured and you didn't say goodbye, you wouldn't play nice right? So with time Kia begins to feel more like them and even though the he misses his family he knows the pack has become his second family and he feels the need to protect them. What he never thought was possible became his reality and he though Arii lured him in, he became attached to the pack and also to her. He cares deeply for her and repeatedly tells her how much he cares for her. For him she is his and she believes that as well, he didn't see any of this ever becoming his future but with Arii by his side he knows the pack is safe. 

Reading about these wolves was such a pleasure, I was so much enthralled with the story couldn't help but want a little more and of course I know Kia's adventure has just begun. Being a wolf comes naturally to them and when they change its like magic, simple change. I loved that even though Kia didn't want to be alpha but he got used to the idea and tried. Kia had an amazing presence and was able to gain the trust from all of the pack. I loved this because for Kia,  becoming the pack's alpha was the first step  to his journey the next step is finding a way to guide his pack into a the future he was destined to lead them in. This was a lovely story, with action, romance and also a journey to finding one's destiny.

5/5 Stars- romance can truly lead any pack to strive
