Matt is a single shifter living in a house full of couples. It’s not that he begrudges his friends their happiness—especially after everything they’ve been through—but he wants someone for himself. He wants a mate. Living out in the Cornish countryside there seems little chance of him finding one. Thomas’s life has recently been changed for ever. Newly altered, he finds himself in danger as his mother, a prominent politician, works to put a stop to the mistreatment of altereds and bring those responsible to justice. To keep him safe, Thomas is sent to Cornwall where Matt and his friends offer him refuge until he can return to his home in London. Despite the circumstances surrounding his arrival, Thomas and Matt bond in a way neither of them were expecting. They struggle to come to terms with what this might mean for their future once the threat is eliminated.
Oh, but I like it when things get tied up and away, with a tidy, little knot!
And with excellent fun.
I ended my review of the second book in this series, The Altered 2, like this:
Well done, Jacobs. I’m keeping my eye on your work.
And so I did! This last part did not disappoint, and wrapped the whole story up perfectly for me. Even though this third installment of the series brings in very few new facts, it is taking care of all the little things that were left suspended in the previous books, and I really enjoyed getting a deeper feel for all the people involved.
