“O’Rourke certainly knows how to deliver twists that the reader never sees coming and that will leave him/her reeling for days on end. Five stars.”A Book Vacation Book Reviews.
As Potter leaves Kiera and his friends to go in search of Luke, he makes a lonely journey across the snow-capped mountains of Cumbria. Haunted by the death of Murphy, the capture of Luke and the love that he feels for Kiera, Potter reflects on his past life and the disturbing events that took place at the Wolf House.
He remembers his first encounter with the werewolves, how he had to save Murphy and Luke, and capture the serial killer who was murdering the children from the town of Little Hope.

When I was looking for some new books to dive into, I found a special offer compilation thingy of Kiera Hudson series one, on Amazon Audible. As this was a bundle deal, I didn’t actually read through the blurb of all the books. I just read something with vampires etc etc, and then decided to hit the purchase button. Because of that, I wasn’t prepared for a short instalment dedicated to Potter. I wish I had taken the time to read the blurb for this one, because then I would have skipped it all together.
In my opinion this is nothing but an extra way of making money on the series, by answering questions I’m not sure anyone actually asked. When there’s a series as interesting as this one, where there’s so many plot twists and a lot of mysteries going on, I find it a great shame to start focusing on other things than the main plot.
Towards the end Tim did manage to make it intertwine with the main plot, but not in a way that was needed. Not in a way that made me glad that I listened to it. And certainly not in a way, that made Potter seem like anything but the unapologetic arse I already saw him as. Actually, it made me like him even less – which I didn’t think was possible. But the way he give Kiera an out for her jealous behaviour in the previous book, when he remembers things he didn’t even know he had forgotten, is just beyond ridiculous. But even worse, he learned absolutely nothing from his past mistakes and he once again hides behind an egotistical and prideful mask.
