Dusk (The Dire Wolves Chronicles #2) by Alyssa Rose Ivy Review


DUSK picks up right where DIRE left off and the crazy continues.  Mary Anne is still trying to come to terms with the consequences of her bargain with Hunter while Gage is having to quickly adapt to the changes that has been forced on him. The small group of Dires are forced to leave the compound that they have built for themselves and the trip to a new sanctuary does not go smoothly. Gage still has very little impulse control and finds himself in trouble again and yet again, Mary Anne has to help get him out of the mess that he's made. However this time it effects the pack even more profoundly. 

Because these stories are quick reads it's very hard to write a review without giving away spoilers, so here's my quick summary. Mary Anne is still naive and sometimes clueless. Hunter is still creepily fixated on possessing Mary Anne and we get a glimpse into why. Gage is still acting like a boy trying to be a man. I still can't decide if Marni is the lone voice of reason or if she has her own creepy nefarious scheme going on in the background. (No one else seems to be concerned about Marni, but I got a bad feeling about her.) And all of the secondary characters seen a bit on the shady side. I'm not sure who are the good guys and who are the bad guys in this series. 

If you are a New Adult/paranormal romance fan and don't mind cliffhangers this series is definitely a good read. Ivy creates well written page turners but there are no neatly tied up endings with these so you have to be okay with being left hanging at the end of the installments. 

Happy Reading!

You can read my review of DIRE here!

  About DIRE: Dire: The Dire Wolves Chronicles Gage was the first guy I ever wanted. He was my first crush and my first fantasy, but he wasn't my first in any other way because he never saw me as anything more than a friend— at least not until the night that changed everything. It was all Gage's fault. He insisted we drive through the storm and take the back roads. By the time the storm hit full force we had no chance. One night of snowbound sex changed our relationship forever. The problem was at the same time I caught another guy’s attention. This other guy happened to be the alpha of a pack of shifter wolves. I thought the wolves were the worst of my problems, but I was wrong. When things went from bad to worse I had to make a lifelong sacrifice to save Gage, but what price is too much to save the one you love?
