Publisher's Summary

I’d never felt like I was missing anything in my life, not until my only friend left to start a journey to find out her own history. It had been clear in the ugliest way that I relied on her company too much over the years.

I needed to make my own path, create my own story.

But then one video call changed my entire life, and I was thrown into a new world where creatures that had only ever been in fiction and movies were now very much real.

And one of them was coming after me.

A werewolf - Lycan - from myth and lore.

He said I was his. He said he was coming for me.

So there was only one thing for me to do. Run.

Cian said he wouldn’t stop until he found me, until he put his mark on my neck. He said he’d go to the ends of the world to make me his mate in all ways.

He’d have one hell of a chase on his hands, because I wasn’t going to make this easy on him.

That was my plan until everything changed - and someone else was hunting us.

Lycans and vampires

As soon as Cian, a lycan, heard and then saw Evie on the phone as she was talking to her friend Dara, he knew she was his mate. He stopped at nothing to get to her in the US from Scotland. In the US, Adrian, a vampire and Cian, had a pissing contest even though they were going after the same group, the assembly, who hunted them. The group wanted to kidnap Evie to get to and control Cian. They called him a beast. I like how the vampires and lycans worked together for a common cause and am looking forward to Adrian's story. John Hartley and Stella Hunter did a very good job with the narration.

Words cannot do justice!

Dear Jenika Snow, firstly, thank you. Thank you for bringing your book to life with two fantastic narrators. When I checked kindle yesterday for The Alpha after my reminder went off I almost passed out bc I saw the audible symbol. I literally screamed out loud! I was so excited to read it bc of the first three in the series that I counted down the days to this one. John Hartley IS the perfect Cian. On the same hand when you release your next one Bite Marks he also makes the perfect Adrian. My gosh I melted to both. Stella Hunter was a fantastic Evie!!! I know that it is expensive to audible your books. Many of the authors have told me. But… this is me shamelessly begging… of course I would love your next one in the series on audible; however, and here comes the begging part, PLEASE put your first 3 to this series on audible as well. Without exaggerating I have read the first 3 books close to 10 times each. I love all of the characters and have fallen madly in love with them all. And as a suggestion for male narrators bc their voices are the ones I “see,” for Ren- Tor Thom. I hear his voice in my head for Ren bc there is a certain level of absolution and certainty that Tor Thom has when he narrates. Butter smooth his voice is. For Luca- none other than Jack Callahan. His deep gutteral growl is perfect for Luca bc he will always be partly shifted. And for Caelan- Troy Duran. I love his imposed brogue when he’s narrating and his voice is so booming and strong that Troy Duran can handle it. Stella Hunter can narrate all of the women bc she is just that good. She can go hard or tone it down when needed. Now that my soapbox is finished… I loved this book. It’s like you’re building up the angst in each book preparing the reader for Adrian’s story, which I can only assume is going to kill me. Each story has a new level of angst but not too much to be off putting. Absolutely perfect! Whether you audible the next one or the others will not matter to me. I’ll read them over and over anyway. Which reminds me… I need to put The Alpha in my kindle library too even though I listened on audible. I love your series, love your writing and cannot wait for book 5.

Recommend this with a 5 star everything. But if you want the full impact of this lycan world then start with the first one with Ren and Mikalina’s story.

P.S. I don’t typically leave reviews. I’ll just put the stars in. This series and book are just too good not to comment. Love it!

I liked it but I wanted to love it

It's definitely worth a credit but the story has been done before and this wasn't necessarily a stand out for me. That said it was entertaining-ish and pretty hot.

Cian and Evelyn

I love shifter romances, especially with a very possessive alpha. This story hit those spots for me. I read this story via an audiobook and oh boy, did I just fall in love with narrator John Hartley, that accent and the growly voice…swoon! Stella Hunter also did an amazing job on Evelyn’s character.

Cian is wondering if he will ever find his mate, when he unexpected hear a voice, he knows she is the one. He travels to find her and once he does, he has to literally fight to keep her safe.

I really enjoyed every of their story, from the danger and how intense it got, to the sexy times, there are many facets to the story.

Just wow!!

I really enjoyed this audio book. I thought Cian and Evelyn were great, just reading the book, but John Hartley and Stella Hunter took these two characters to another level. John Hartley and Stella Hunter did a wonderful job with this book. You wont' want to stop listening to this book! I would recommend recommend this audio book. Below is my e-book review.
Oh man! I have been waiting for this book and boy was it worth the wait! I loved Cain and Evelyn's story. This book had me hook through the entire thing and made adulting difficult for a bit. Not only was there a lot of steam, chemistry and connection but also suspense, intrigue and a great HEA! I can't wait to see what Ms. Jenika has in store for us next! I would recommend this book, this series, and Ms. Jenika as an awesome author.

I received a free audio copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving an honest review.

Great listen

Book 4 in the Lycans series and it was so good. Loved Evelyn and Cian. You first find out that she is Cian’s mate at the end of the Hunger, and I have been waiting for their story and let me say, I wasn’t disappointed at all. Loved their romance. No matter how far she ran, he was going to find his mate. I am not normally a fan of paranormal romance, but I love anything paranormal that Jenika writes. She has a way to create worlds that will suck you in and not let you go. Loved this and highly recommend this and the whole series.

I have never listened to these narrators before and I loved their narration. They were able to take Jenika's words and really bring them to life. I was already lost in her words but to hear them being spoken made the story more real.

Intense & Deliciously Steamy

Evelyn and Cian are intense and deliciously steamy. The chemistry is electric, the drama taut and the sparks fiery as this fun story unfolds. A bit of danger and action brings some excitement and suspense to the table and all together it combines into a well crafted, sinfully good and irresistible romance. I felt the narrators delivered an amazing performance that made it super easy to get immersed into the book and become truly invested in the characters.
