different, but something not quite there.

The Alpha's Weave (Pack Born Book 1) - C.M. Torrens
Independent reviewer for Divine Magazine, I was gifted my copy of this book. Dante knows Caster will come for him at some point, he just did not expect to lose his father, and go against his father's wishes in the process. I'm not really sure how I feel about this book. I finished it, and that's a good thing. There was just something....missing, I think is the word I'm looking for but I can't figure out what. So here's what I DID like about it. Its different. While other books have some sort of connection between an Alpha and their pack, this one has a two way effect. The Weave can be used to communicate, to call for help, but also for the Alpha, Dante, to soothe and help his pack and reassure them. It's told from all the major players, and some minor ones, point of view in the third person. You all know how happy I am to get inside of the bad guy's mind! It's fairly clean. Yeah, yeah, I know I usually prefer my male/male books, shifter ones especially, to be more on the hotter side, but it felt right for this book that it was very much a case of you filling in the blanks. I'm just at a total loss as to what was missing, and it stresses me so! I'm not writing this author (for it is the first I've read Torrens) nor am I writing this series off, just yet. I'd like to read the second book. I'm curious as to what will happen to Dante and Jesse and the rest of the pack and the strays that they are taking in. Whatever I find missing here, might be there. Who knows, I just hope I get the chance. Because I can't pinpoint what I'm missing.... 3 stars
