Disappointing story which started off great and fell apart completely at the midway point. Nice characterization, backstory and setting. Unfortunately, after getting the two primary characters backed into a corner during conflict the story takes a bizarre and WTF turn. Seriously, the ex-alpha and Nathan's dad reappears as a vampire werewolf. I could probably overlook that, but the unsatisfactory and shallow resolution regarding both the two primaries and the group relationship made me rate the story only 2 stars.
