Review: Pack Community (Were Chronicles #5) by Crissy Smith

Book five in the Were Chronicles Series

A wolf and bobcat come together and change one community, forever.

Grayson Mason is worn out and run down from the long months on the road in search of the feline Prince. All he wants is to finish his mission and go back to his Pack. That is, until he meets the one woman who will turn his world upside down.

Beth Williams is happy in Coyote Bluff. The community of shifters support one another and she has her brother and nephew. Sure, sometimes she might get lonely, but she’s never connected with anyone enough to consider mating. That is, until a new wolf hits town. With the arrival of Gray, she has to rethink her entire life.

But there is more going on than just the attraction between the wolf and the bobcat. Gray’s search is bringing him closer to finding the Prince but at the same time leading him right into the middle of a feline conspiracy and a battle.

Gray finds himself fighting not only for the Prince’s survival, but also to protect his future mate.

Gray is helping to search for the feline prince that went missing a few months before.  When he follows the trail to a small town full of shifters of all kinds he feels like he is home.  As a member of a wolf pack he is used to being surrounded by wolves.  In this community he is the only wolf but he feels more at peace there than when he is at home.  A lot of that could have something to do with the attractive bobcat shifter he meets, Beth.  From his first look at her he wants to get to know her but he’s not sure if a mating is possible cross species.  While he’s dealing with all these new feelings he is also helping track down the feline prince and then setting up a sting to catch the men responsible for the kidnapping.

We met Gray in the previous book, Pack Rogue, and I liked him then.  I liked him more in this book.  He’s not an Alpha but he is still a strong wolf with a need to feel like he belongs.  He has been watching his friends and pack mates find their mates and move on with there lives but he is afraid that it may not happen for him.  When he meets Beth and starts to feel things for her that he’s never felt he wants to stay and see where this could go.

One of my favorite things about Gray is that he wasn’t an Alpha.  Most of the books in the series feature the Alpha’s and I felt that Gray was a nice change of pace.  He is still able to hold his own but he doesn’t want to run a pack, he just wants a family and to belong.  With Beth, he finds a woman that is looking for the same thing and it doesn’t hurt that the attraction between the two is instant.

I enjoyed all the new character’s in this book.  Between Beth’s family and the shifters that were protecting the feline prince there are a lot of places for the series to go.  It was also nice to branch out of the wolf shifters and see some felines and hawks as well.  I would be interested in seeing more from them in future books.

This is book five in the Were Chronicles series and they are best read in order.  There are many reoccurring character’s, continuing story arcs and some world building that isn’t fully explained in each book.
