Publisher's Summary

As tracker for the Redwood Pack, Kaylee Jamenson knows her duty. She’s seen war and heartache, but now the battle hits closer to home when a packmate goes missing. With rogues on the rise, the Alphas of the Redwood and Talon Packs send her to find their lost wolf before all is lost.

Yet nothing is as it seems, and as the hunt grows dangerous, so does the threat to her heart when fate throws a curveball in her path.

Her mate.

Includes a bonus novella, Fated in Winter.

Conner Jamenson knows two things: One day he might turn rogue.

And he can never risk his mate.

Romy Temple knows what it means to be lonely.

She’s spent 99 years in the Talon Pack, not part of the hierarchy, and not quite old enough to be elder.

She’s the wolf no one remembers.

With a rogue on the loose and the winter season approaching, two wolves who promised they would never fall find themselves on the brink of doing what could cost them the most.

Each other.

And the next generation begins

Wow, it's been a long time since we have seen the Redwood Pack and what a way to revitalize them. I love that Kaylee was trusted, and challenged, by going to the Starlight Pack to find the missing packmate. And then to see who her mate is, was just WOW! There is so much controversy with these two being mates until a near death experience.

I love seeing the next generation of pack members getting stories. I don't know if Ms. Ryan is planning to continue along this line, but I think it would be fun to see.

Aiden Snow is my absolute favorite narrator of all time and he out does himself in any of his shifter books. His voice is the perfect blend for this genre, not to stereotype him. But gawd, that gruff and growliness is music to my ears. Kitt Swann is new to me and I know Ms Ryan is using her in other books. She handles a strong female shifter well. I'm looking forward to hearing more from her.

I'm hooked...

Mated in Darkness is the 10th book in the Talon Pack Series and once again I was hooked from the start. I absolutely loved Kaylee and Jason, and seeing their struggles to get to where they were meant to be. I was fun seeing their insta-connection. Their chemistry is smoking hot! You get all the feels in this one. I was also excited to get an inside look at the Starlight Pack.

Aiden Snow and Kit Swann made this story come to life, I could feel their emotions. I can't wait to see what Carrie Ann has in store for us next! 4 1/2 stars for me.

Really enjoyed

I really enjoyed Kaylee and Jason’s story. I have missed the wolf shifters and was excited to see the return. Kaylee is a tracker and sent to find one of the wolves that has been missing for a short time with no contact to the pack. When on her mission she wasn’t planning to find her mate. Jason is a friend of a different wolf pack and helping them find out what has been killing wolves, witches and humans in his area. There is an instant attraction that Jason doesn’t fully understand and Kaylee while on a mission isn’t ready to fully explore. Unfortunately the bad guys aren’t going to give them much choice and might end their chance at being mates before it even begins. So looking forward to more. Loved the characters and the seeing old ones from before. Great read. Narrators were really great with these characters

Kaylee and James!

MATED IN DARKNESS
Kaylee is a tracker for the Redwood pack. She is sent to find a missing packmate that may have gone rogue. What she doesn't expect to find, is James, a human scientist working with the Starlight Pack to figure out what is causing wolves to go rogue. They are instantly attracted to each other and the more time they spend together, Kaylee believes she has found her human mate. In order to save James when he is severely hurt, Kaylee must make the decision to complete the mating bond by marking him which ultimately turns him from human to wolf shifter.

Kaylee and James weren't looking for their HEA, but they found it together! For audio, great narration by Aiden Snow and Kit Swann.

FATED IN WINTER
Connor, from the Redwood pack, is struggling with the fear of going rogue and the fact his twin sister has mated. While hanging out with is brother on the cliffs, he senses a friend who has gone rogue stalking him causing him to shift to his wolf form. As they begin to fight, he loses is footing and begins to fall over the cliff. Deciding he has a better chance of surviving, he shifts back to human form. That's when he meets Romy.

Romy is a part of the Talon pack but spends most of her time alone. After losing sight of the rogue wolf she was chasing, she finds Connor hanging off the side of the cliff. Once pulled to safety, they continue to pursue the rogue wolf. As they spend more time together, their wolves realize they are mates without actually marking each other. As the bond between their wolves is too strong, they decide to make the mating bond permanent by marking each other. Romy is no longer alone and Conner's fears of going rogue have disappeared and they both get their HEA.

For the audio version, Aiden Snow and Kit Swann did an awesome job.

Captivating read!

I recently had the opportunity to listen to Mated in Darkness by Carrie Ann Ryan, which is part of the Talon Pack series. Narrated by Aiden Snow and Kit Swann, I enjoyed listening to the story and did not feel lost but am very excited to go back and start the series from the beginning!

Here we have Kaylee who is sent to investigate the disappearance of a packmate and she meets Jason, who she is very attracted too. Together they try to find out what is going on. I loved their chemistry and connection right from the start. The suspense of what was going on added to the story and I was captivated from start to finish. I am so excited to read more from this and other related books in the series.

Happy listening!

Love

This was such a fantastic story. What can Carrie Ann Ryan not write? It was fast paced and action packed. Love when next generation stories are written. This story ties the ending together nicely and let’s you know there will be more. So be ready. And Ready I am. Absolutely loved the twins. I am glad there was a HEA and what a way to find your mate! The bonus story was amazing. It was great to hear how Connor and Romy met. The narration was great. I am loving Aiden snow.

Mated in Darkness

Kaylee is in the middle of tracking one of her lost Redwood pack mates and is blindsided when she comes across Jason; a man that could be her mate. Kaylee does not have time for what this could mean. As she works with the Starlight pack to try and find her lost packmate she must work with Jason. Soon an enemy rears its head and Kaylee and Jason are in their sites. Circumstances take things out of their control and Kaylee and Jason’s choices are taken away from them.

It was nice to see the two work through everything and find their way. Both Kaylee and Jason are strong characters, and I was quickly pulled into their story. As the two work to find their common enemy they must also work to deal with their attraction. As much as I liked their story, I did find Kaylee’s constant questioning and worrying about mating to be an annoying trait. Kaylee begins to sound like a child the longer this goes on. Their adventure made for a nice listen.

Included in this audio book was Fated in Winter. Conner and Romy’s story. Both Conner and Romy have kept themselves on the outside of their packs. When they are thrown together to plan a festival. Soon the two realize that their attraction can only mean one thing. As the two work on the festival, they must figure out their mating. Conner and Romy’s story is a sweet listen. The two soon find that they are worth so much more than they ever thought. Although I enjoyed their story, I did find the constant questioning about mating annoying. While it is an interesting plot it seems to be overdone in both Mated in Darkness and Fated in Winter. Narrators Aiden Snow and Kit Swann do a good job of bringing the emotions out and the characters to life.

Mated in Darkness

⏤ 4 Maple Leaf ALC Review ⏤

"𝒀𝒐𝒖 𝒂𝒓𝒆 𝒔𝒕𝒓𝒆𝒏𝒈𝒕𝒉 𝒑𝒆𝒓𝒔𝒐𝒏𝒊𝒇𝒊𝒆𝒅, 𝑲𝒂𝒚𝒍𝒆𝒆. 𝑰𝒕'𝒔 𝒉𝒂𝒓𝒅 𝒕𝒐 𝒇𝒐𝒄𝒖𝒔 𝒘𝒉𝒆𝒏 𝒚𝒐𝒖'𝒓𝒆 𝒂𝒓𝒐𝒖𝒏𝒅, 𝒆𝒔𝒑𝒆𝒄𝒊𝒂𝒍𝒍𝒚 𝒄𝒐𝒏𝒔𝒊𝒅𝒆𝒓𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝒘𝒆 𝒎𝒆𝒕 𝒘𝒊𝒕𝒉 𝒚𝒐𝒖 𝒕𝒉𝒓𝒐𝒘𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝒎𝒆 𝒐𝒏 𝒎𝒚 𝒃𝒂𝒄𝒌."

Kaylee, a pack tracker, is tasked with heading to Texas to try and find a missing Redwood/Starlight pack member. When she arrives in Texas she realizes there are strange things happening to the wolves in the area but also her personal life is about to be flipped upside down.

Jason and Kaylee are complete opposites in every way but the pull they have to each other is magical and combustible. I loved how fiercely protective Jason was of Kaylee even though she was a dominant wolf. I can not wait to see what is next in Carrie Ann Ryan's paranormal pack world.

Aiden Snow and Kit Swann both did a great job narrating and bringing the characters and story to life. This was my first listen with Kit Swann and I am looking forward to more audiobooks by her.

Mated in Darkness is the tenth book in the Talon Pack series by Carrie Ann Ryan and is a paranormal, shifter (wolves), fated mates romance told in the dual first-person point-of-view.

A new beginning!

I loved to see the next generation in the Redwood Pack. My favorite book was Trinity bound and now, their offsprings are making their own way. It’s Kaylee’s time to find a mate while another danger is brewing. She is one of the Pack’s trackers and as such she goes to the Starlight pack looking for a missing packmate. She finds the packmate and her mate. Mixed feelings and a case to solves brings them together. I liked Jason, his strength and endless curiosity, He is a great addition to the pack. Then an awesome surprise is the novella on her twin brother. He was all kinds of brooding when Kaylee left but found his own happiness right then. The narrators make the story all the more alluring. Totally enjoyable.

Fantastic audiobook

Book 10 Talon Pack by Carrie Ann Ryan
Kaylee is a Jamenson and Redwood pack tracker, she goes in search of a member that’s gone rogue and missing.
Jason is a human scientist who is working with the Starlight pack trying to figure out what’s turning wolves into rogues.
I love that Jason is human to start off with in this book and a relationship very quickly I love how the Talon and the Redwood packs in to have completely merged now even though they still see in a separate packed their interlinked so much between me and couples that they are found like one but with different offers I do love the big family feel about it.
Carrie Ann Ryan always picks the best narrators for her books and it just approved it so much absolutely love listening to all her audiobooks even the contemporary and the shifter series highly recommend all of them.

Fated in Winter (short story and end of book)
This is a short story that’s at the end of the audiobook still with the same narrators and it’s about Connor Kayleigh’s twin and how he meets his mate. Again it’s a Talon and Redwood crossover absolutely love the way it develops Connor as a character and introduces Romy look forward to more

AWHOOOOO we are family, we are wolf, we are Pack!!


Yay! I loved this series and this book hit the ground running. Loved Kaylee's story and the way I just slipped straight back into the Pack.
Kaylee is a sent to find out where one of her packmates has gone. So she goes to the Starlight Pack and there has help from Riaz (pack Alpha) and Jason - human scientist.... Yeah she's very very wary at first (can't say I blame her with her Pack past) but her and her wolf will not be denied, Jason is her Mate but she needs to find what has happened to her packmate. Jason is a good human and a friend of the Starlight Pack so he knows about the wolves and wants to help them find out what's happening with the Rogues. Of course love isn't smooth and something bad happens, Jason keeps true to his nature though and of course loves Kaylee and wants to help her and the wolves stop all Rogues.
Loved the interaction with both Kaylee and Jason and the rest of the Starlight Pack. Seems the Talon Pack has found new friends and allies in this pack, I cannot wait to find out what happens next in the wolves Rogue problems.
Love the fact that the Packs are back! Awoooo!!!

She does it again

Seriously how can Carrie Anns books still be getting better? I have loved each and every talon pack book to come out and when I heard she was revisiting them it was better than my birthday so I had massive hopes. I wanted that spark that comes with a Carrie Ann book that suspense and drama and yes that heat that she does so well, and she brought it all and more. This is my favourite of her Talon books to date and I couldn’t recommend it more.

Brilliant narration and storyline made this one that captured me from start to finish
