Who knew walking in the woods would lead to the adventure of his life? Not Hans. Being held captive by robbers isn't his idea of fun, but there's a silver lining in the form of a hunky wolf shifter. Hans is coming into his own and realizing the depths of his brawn, but things aren't what they seem. Can Hans sort out his feelings for the wolf and defeat the forces working to keep them from their happily ever after before time runs out?

Book Review

A mysterious world, fate as an abused hostage, and hints of something going on behind the scenes are the elements that make up this story. The truth gradually emerges and the suspense increases as Hans, kidnapped when he was fourteen, decides to break the shackles of his existence after ten years of drudgery. In a setting that feels like a video game (riddles, helpful objects, and a quest for the truth included), this story combines action/adventure and a fairy-tale-feel to good effect.

Hans has had a tough ten years in captivity, held under control by a shock collar, but when his captor decides to become physical and start abusing Hans, he decides enough is enough. His rebellion leads to a few revelations, one of which is his attraction to Pietro, one of the hostage-takers who turns out to be on Hans’s side. But there is more to discover, and once Hans is free from the collar, he takes his life into his own hands.

If you like stories with lots of secrets and revelations, if action/adventure is your thing, and if you’re looking for a suspenseful read of the fantastical kind, then you might like this short story.
