Jace’s Justice (Highgate Shifters #1) by Sydney Presley
I do like to read shifter books, they are my go to genre. I saw the cover while browsing books and instantly wanted to read the series.
Jace’s Justice is book 1 in the Highgate Shifters Series, as with most first books in a series the author spent quite a bit of time world/pack building. The book did suffer a little from this.
Jace is an abandoned pup found in the road side by his Alpha, he has never felt like he belonged, he has always wondered about his real family. He knows who his mate is, he thinks fate has got it all wrong.
Louie is Jace’s mate but he won’t claim him as he is terrified his birth family will come and claim him. He hides from Jace and himself until the dreaded day a stranger arrives on pack lands.
I enjoyed parts of this book but I am left with so many questions that I hope will be answered in future books. I did like all the wolves characters we met at Highgate pack. Jace is very complex while Louie seems like an open book. There were a few parts that fell flat for me, I am hoping its because it is the first book. I do think the book would have benefitted from having a prologue as I did feel I was missing a huge chunk of the story. That been said the book was an ok read.
The Alpha and his mate, I need to read a lot more about them they have me intrigued. I am looking forward to reading more of this series.
