Title: Destiny Binds (Timber Wolves #1)
Author: Tammy Blackwell
Scout Donovan is a girl who believes in rules, logic, and her lifelong love of Charlie Hagan. Alex Cole believes in destiny, magic, and Scout. When Alex introduces Scout to the world of Shifters, men who change into wolves or coyotes during the full moon and Seers, women who can see your most private thoughts and emotions with a mere touch, the knowledge changes everything and everyone Scout thought she knew
So I actually first read this book back before I wrote reviews, but I loved it (and the second book too) so much, that now that the 3rd book is out, I knew I should reread them both before starting the 3rd book and actually write up a review for them.
So… here goes: Scout is a normal senior, living a pretty good life. She has a step brother (her mother and his father married after they were already born and their spouses both died) who is just a few months older than she, and a half sister that their parents had together.
She also has a best friend- Talley, who is pretty awesome, and Jace’s cousin (Jace is her step brother) Charlie, who she has basically had a crush on forever but she thinks he only thinks of her as a little sister.
That’s the start up… then everything changes when Alex (and his older, creepy brother, Liam) move into town. Alex and Scout start up a relationship, though Jace and Charlie are vehemently against it (and wont tell her why) until one night she discovers their deep dark secret!
They are ALL shifters! (BTW in this book werewolves and shifters cannot be made by being bitten, its only in the blood when you are born. ) Alex and Liam are werewolves and Jace and Charlie are were-coyotes (though only called shifters) and apparently they are feuding.
Then you find out more secrets about the lovely Talley. And all hell breaks loose. AND- something terrible happens… And there is a killer cliffhanger.
All the characters are so real and fleshed out and its hard to believe that this is a self published, debut novel! The writing flows perfectly! In fact, other than the killer cliffhanger, there is NOTHING wrong with this book. There is no annoying character that makes dumb choices. There is no annoying teenager drama. There is nothing annoying at all! I love this book!!!!
Rating: 5 Stars.
(come back tomorrow for a review of book 2)
