The story starts with Johnny Raven being devastated by the loss of his wife, Samantha, and unborn child. They had been attacked by an unknown creature. Johnny is determined to seek revenge for the loss of the person he loved most, and he seeks assistance from his father. Johnny belonged to the weregune clan, which was part human and part wolf. They could switch to their wolf form at any time, which enabled them to gain more strength and freedom. Because these creatures had a human form, they could live freely without being suspected by humans.
On the other hand, Kathy is a smart detective whose only companions are her father and dog. A strange creature was on a rampage, killing multiple people within days, and the police had to stop him. Kathy’s father is worried about how dangerous the job is, but she’s too determined. When Johnny discovers that a creature is destroying lives, he assumes it might be just the person he’s looking for.
Then we have an intriguing character, Quentin, a werewolf who is on the lookout for his next prey. Johnny is on the other side, finding clues to his wife’s killer and building connections among his clan that will guide him toward victory. Quentin stumbles on Colleen, a young, promising lawyer, in an awkward and unpredictable situation. Colleen is another interesting character. She was tired of her failing relationships and soon found out she was sexually attracted to her colleague, Sara. It turns out they loved each other, so they started dating.
An unlikely meeting links Johnny and Kathy, and the two form a team to stop the killings by Quentin. Apart from finding a common villain, Kathy and Johnny feel a spark, leaving readers to wonder if a future together is possible between them.
One of the things I liked about this book was the interesting villain. A cold-blooded creature with no mercy for anyone, but can you blame him? Also, the book is sprinkled with romantic moments, and the love portrayed by some of the characters will be envied.
For people who are not big fans of violence, the gory scenes in this book might be a turnoff. I liked how the book didn’t deviate from the main plot that much; the story flowed seamlessly and each part left readers in anticipation of what would come next. Ravens Way by Kerry L. Marzock will be a fantastic read for fans of werewolf stories.
