Readers first meet Tanner as he's engaging in battle (against other fellow hunters in training!). It's after training he gets news that his old alpha has been murdered. He makes a quick decision to return home and to face his mate after being away for four year.
It was such a different story from the normal shifter stuff. First off, Tanner is a human who trained to become a hunter. He left home never planning to return leaving his mate behind and trying to move on. The idea of a hunter not hunting paranormal without prejudice was a unique idea. For that, I liked it right off the bat. The story/plot was intriguing and I have to admit my only complaint is that I wish it was longer and the author had flushed out the story. Also to note the pack seemed exceptionally small with just Mason, Jacey, Carson and Tanner being mentioned.
