When Ness is forced to leave Boulder and her pack, she never wants to return to the men who forced her from her home and refused her mother the help she needed. When an untimely death forces Ness, and her caregiver by choice Evelyn, to return, Ness is thrown back into the pack who don’t want her, the pack who hope that their new Alpha, Liam Kolane, will not let her pledge herself. But Liam isn’t Alpha yet. Determined not to let the son of the cruelest man she knew become the new Alpha, Ness challenges Liam for power, wanting to control the pack that hurt her. As the challenges get harder, with elders creating rules against her alone, Ness creates unlikely allies to help her, but no one can help her kill Liam in the final battle, and no one can help her ignore what she feels towards the man she must kill.

I’ll start off saying just how worried I was about this book. Ever since Wattpad has been a part of my life, and I learned of werewolf Alpha stories, I haven’t been able to look at any were-stories the same ever again. But I saw A Pack of Blood and Lies and I couldn’t help but ask myself if I wanted to take another chance. And I did. The first chapter had me worried, it sounded so similar to what I could read online. But then the rollercoaster took a turn.

I regret ever thinking that Olivia Wildenstein would write something like what I’ve found on Wattpad because this book has restored my faith in the werewolf plot line. I fell completely in love with Liam and Ness and Everest and Julian and Jeb and everyone else in this story. Even if I didn’t love what they did. I found myself glued to my Kindle, and before I realized it I was at 86% and it was 11:30 pm. Let me reiterate, I am in love with this book.  

I am so impressed with this book that I don’t know where to start. I did think at the beginning that it was difficult to understand that the book was based around werewolves, especially if I hadn’t read the synopsis, but apart from that, I am absolutely in love. I’ve already started rereading it, I’m not kidding, I have. Please, please read this book, it has given me faith in were-stories again and I will be waiting in anticipation for the next instalment.
