BLURB: A remote farmhouse in Cornwall seems the perfect place for Ash to settle into his recently altered status. Starting a new life there with Sam—the shifter he can’t stay away from—should be easy this far from London where they faced so much danger. So why does adjusting seem impossible?
Sam has issues of his own. He has to get used to his human form again after living the last eight years as a wolf. It’s hard when human worries weigh so heavily on his shoulders. Life is much more straightforward from a wolf’s perspective, until Ash needs his human support.Ash’s problem is simple: he’s fearful of shifting fully. How can he believe he won’t hurt Sam when his genes were altered to create a killer? Despite repeated reassurance, his anger and resentment increase. Only one thing is certain: if Ash can’t learn to trust himself soon, he’s in danger of proving himself right.
The second book in this engaging series is “Altered 2” and comes out for publication today. Thanks to the author, I was pleased to read this story in preview. “Altered 2” focuses on the relationship between two characters that we met in the first novel: Sam and Ash.
If you have read “Altered”, then you definitely will not want to wait to read this sequel! Where the first novel was action-packed, “Altered 2” focuses more on the psychological aspect of the story. It is a very good follow-up and completes the series nicely.
Sam has spent the last eight years of his life as a wolf, to escape the pain of the rejection of his family who has driven him from home at age 16 along with twin sister Keira, when she has undergone the mutation. a Despite the meeting with Jordan and Charlie with which they built an extended family, and despite the guilt he feels for leaving his sister alone to face and manage a very hard time of their lives, he is not able to return to live in his human part, not until Ash will be in danger.
After being kicked out of his house, Ash lived on the streets until he met Daniel and Matt and was welcomed into their home. Although he is a human, free of mutations, he does not hesitate to fight alongside his friends, facing any consequences with them.
I will not reveal too much and spoil your reading enjoyment. I will only say that Ash and Sam are two people who need each other to feel complete. Their relationship morphs from “Altered”, where it began in a completely subconscious way. Here, in “Altered 2”, it develops and we see how these two characters help themselves, as well as take care of each other.
I can’t wait to read the third book! The author has already said it will be about Matt, and that there will again be an action level more on par of what was seen in the first volume. I advise you not to miss this series. I need to thank very much Jay Northcote for having recommended Annabelle Jacobs to me!
The covers were both designed by Natasha Snow. They are simple but very effective.
Among the editors of the first volume we found Posy Roberts, one of the writers who is part of the project “Blanket Fort Press” in which we found the very talented authors Jay Northcote, Posy Roberts, Teegan Loy, and Annabelle Jacobs. HERE you can found some news about them.
