Being put in charge of a werewolf pack might be someone’s dream, but it’s Hedi’s nightmare. Hints that it’s not working out include the Creemore wolves wanting her blood. And the Council of Weres wanting her dead…The Trouble with Fate was one of the first Urban Fantasy books I dared to read and it brought me not only the experience of a new genre but also the experience of a pretty unique style for me. Leigh Evans continued to surprise me in this sequel.
Then all Hedi's wishes are granted. Robson Trowbridge, pack leader, returns – and her love isn't alone. He's found her missing twin brother, Lexi, among the fae. With this double helping of wonderful, things should’ve been all sunshine and flowers, but the fae lands have changed both men. Hedi’s brother is dying of an addiction, and her relationship with Robson may not survive the forces pushing them apart. To combat the darkness ahead, Hedi must face her dangerous were/fae heritage – and accept the consequences.
After all the trouble in The Trouble with Fate Hedi was left in a really bad position. To save the one she loved she had to throw them in a world he didn't belong to and now she had to find a way to get him back. Only that brought some changes into Towbridg's pack and she had to take control over them. That wouldn't be a big deal if she wasn't an enemy the one they despise the most. Even when she though the things can get any worse Towbridge is back but not alone. He brought someone from her past, the one she lost long ago and the one that changed a lot, still he was her brother. It wouldn't be much of a problem if there wasn't another person who Towbridge brought with them. It made her question her choices.
Besides having a really interesting concept this story has a really interesting narration. While you're reading it you feel like you're inside Hedi's head. You can read her thoughts and big parts of this book are inner monologues. That might sound unappealing but once you meet Hedi you change your mind. Only thing is it takes some time to get used to it but once you do be prepared to laugh, because Hedi is a really witty girl.
While I did struggle at the start because it takes few chapters to remember all the details and get used to Hedi's mind it didn't stop me from enjoying this story. While The Trouble with Fate brought a really interesting plot in The Thing about Wolves be prepared to experience some new twists and as always you'll want more.
Rating: 4 stars.
Until the next time,
