Review: Wolf Pact 1-4

Wolf Pact (Wolf Pact #1-4) by Melissa de la Cruz
Synopsis:
From the bestselling author of Blue Bloods, comes a series that will reinvent the myth of the werewolf in the same way that Blue Bloods did with vampires—with style and NYC flair!

Lawson and his brothers escaped from the underworld and now lead desperate, dangerous lives. They’re pursued by the Hounds of Hell from one town to the next, never calling any place home. But when the hounds finally catch up with them and capture the girl Lawson loves, the hunters become the hunted. Lawson will stop at nothing to track down the hounds, even if the chances of saving Tala are slim...

The only hope he has lies in Bliss Llewellyn. Bliss, too, has lost someone to the beasts and will do anything to get them back—even if it means joining forces with the insolent, dangerously good-looking boy with a wolf’s soul

My Reviews:
 Part 1: Lawson and his brothers are wolves, almost old enough to become a Hell Hound and work under the control of Lucifer and the Silver Bloods forever. But Lawson and his brothers don't want to become hounds, they want to be free to have their own loves, for they know once they become hounds they would lose themselves forever. Lawson has hope that they will succeed, except something goes wrong in their escape. While Lawson, Edon, Tala, Ahramin, Mac, and Rafe were about to escape from Hell Tala lagged behind. Trying to save her Ahramin pushed her forward and got caught herself, and din't make it to the portal

Now in the human world they live in parks, and get food from garbage's. They move around a lot, afraid of their surrounding they try and stick together. Finally Lawson and the others get some help from a wizard Arthur who helps them and takes them into his home to help them learn how to fit in with society.

After leaving Arthur's they head out on their own. Tala and Lawson becoming closer and closer. They begin to see each other in secret. Everything seems to be going fine. They have a home, clothes, food, jobs, and each other. That's when danger comes and finds them. While they've always been careful of not staying in one place they were finally caught. A familiar face finds them and burns their house to the ground. When Tala gets captured all Lawson can do is think about getting her back, no matter the cost.

Meanwhile Bliss is still on her mission with her Aunt Jane to find the hounds and bring them back into the fold, just as Gabrielle her mother had told her. Following every lead they can including the burning house Bliss finds what she thinks to be a lead, instead it might be more danger than she can handle.

Loved this novel. So exciting to read more about Bliss and extra exciting to read about the wolves and what all is going on in Hell. It was amazing all the powers that Bliss still possesses, and how Hell keeps drawing her in. Could not put this short story down!

Part 2: Wolf Pact Part 2 picks where Part 1 left off. Lawson is looking for answers on how to find and rescue Tala from the Hell Hounds. On the drive there Malcolm continues to feel sick which is a sign the they're in the right place. Lawson and his brothers are looking for the oculus which will hopefully have the answers he's looking for. However, what he finds is Bliss. Thinking she's a human tracker he sets a trap for her.

Bliss taking the bate goes to find the hounds and ask for there help. However, as soon as she is through the door they attack. She tries to flee but ends up being knocked unconscious, but not before revealing that she has the ability to know the language of the wolves.

Lawson needing answers from Bliss decides to take her with them. When they are once again attacked by the Hounds and Bliss shows useful once again, Lawson begins to realize there is more to Bliss than meets the eye.

Part 3: After the fight ends, Bliss and the hounds leave to go to the hospital where Tala is. Only, it's not Tala it's Ahramin who says she has lost her collar and is no longer the hound that had been hunting them. Wondering if they should trust her they let her come along anyway.

After Ahramin fills Lawson in on the change and what happened to Tala he's nearly broken. That doesn't stop what happens between Lawson and Bliss though. The strange pull they feel towards each other finally comes together and they don't stop it..at least not right away. Fighting their emotions they start on a mission to find Marrok, the wolf who helped them escape and who escaped later with a pack of his own.

Part 4: After finding Marrok and the other hounds they are lead to where they have been hiding. Once there the all begin to formulate a plan as to how to stop the Hell Hounds from carrying out Lucifer's orders. With that they learn they need to go back in time and stop them in the act. But what the team doesn't understand is why they all of a sudden want to stop this moment in time. Then they realize it all has to do with Lawson, who's destiny is Fenrir the great wolf who is supposed to save and free all the wolves and lead them from the gates of hell.

On the mission Lawson gets word that Tala is still alive, and Bliss gets word that her Aunt Jane is alive and safe after she led the hounds to where they needed to go.

When the big moment comes Bliss finally fesses up to who she really is, Lucifer's daughter. When Lawson finds out he tells her to leave. But when the stakes are high Bliss and Ahramin ban together to save him, but at what cost?
