Review: Fate Succumbs (Timber Wolves #3)
Title: Fate Succombs
(Timber Wolves #3)
Author: Tammy Blackwell
Having narrowly escaped an unjust death sentence, Scout Donovan is on the run. But the more she discovers about the Alpha Pack and herself, the more she realizes she can’t run forever. Destiny is propelling her towards an unavoidable battle. Can Scout survive, or will she finally succumb to fate?
Uhhh… I think Im a little speechless at the moment. As I sit here at my computer, trying to figure out HOW to say what Im feeling, I just cant think of the words!
This was an EPIC finale to the Timber Wolves series! It had everything a novel should have! Excitement and fear, worry and action, hope and truth, and romance! The story follows Scout and she and Liam are in hiding. For a large portion of this novel, it is only Liam and Scout as they make their way across the USA and Canada, training to try and find a way to overthrow the Alpha Pack.
Talley, Charlie and Jace are also present, just in small doses. Talley and Jace have a new… relationship. But it was one I expected from the very first book! And I love the direction it took.
Charlie was such a minor character in this book it almost made me sad. After Alex died, I was sure Scout and Charlie would make up, but I guess I knew after book 2, it wouldn’t happen. Still- in a very small way I was a little bummed.
HOWEVER- I really LOVED the turn of events. I loved the way Scout really grew into a woman, a strong and sure woman. I loved learning more about Liams character and being able to see him more. I loved learning more of the history of shifters and figuring out all the answers that you were left questioning after the first two books!
I would have liked a little more… oomph in the physical romance dept. I get it, it’s a YA novel… but I don’t know. It was the opposie of insta-love. Where I hate when 2 people instantly fall in love at the beginning of the book, I also didn’t like that it took the entire book before they fully realized the depth of their emotions. Because by the time they did get it… there wasn’t much time for me to enjoy it.
Anyways, the story was great, the writing-flawless of course!
Rating: 4.5 Stars (though I will be rounding up)
