ARC Review: Chasing Destiny (Silver Tip Pack #2) by Megan Erickson

Chasing Destiny  (Silver Tip Pack, #2)Blurb:
Some live on memories…

Almost dying during a pack uprising has a way of shaking things up. I’m no longer Mr. Laid Back now that there’s an itch under my skin I can’t scratch.

On a volunteer mission that goes beyond the walls of our compound, we enter the territory of a pack long thought dead, and find ourselves on the business end of their spears.

What I’m not prepared for is what I find within their walls—The one shifter I never thought I’d see alive, the one I’d mourned twice, the one I’d always loved. He is alive, and if I have anything to do with it, he’ll stay that way. But he’s got secrets, and exposing them could lead us to an enemy worse than the bloodthirsty undead shifters wanting to kill us all…

Todd's rating:

Okay, stick a fork in me, I'm DONE.

I thought Bay and Nash's book was all kinds of awesome. : )

While book 1 was chock-full of fight after fight with the undead Nowere shifters, other than one scene, this story was all about fighting a different sort of enemy.

For Nash, his nemesis was his past, what happened to him after he left the Silver Tip pack, how he survived, and how he had to fight his way back to becoming whole once again.

For Bay, his fighting partner was none other than Nash himself, who needed Bay's support and patience, but mostly Bay's tenacious, bull-headed faith in the fact that Nash was still a Were worth saving. An alpha worthy of being Bay's mate. Spoiler, he was.

Although this story had less actual fighting throughout the majority of the book, I still found myself immediately pulled in and invested in every single aspect of the plot.

When I wasn't watching Nash try to pull away from Bay due to 'reasons', the story kept me entertained with the antics between Vaughn and Pace, the werewolf alpha of the Whitethroat pack. Underneath all of their banter, I got the distinct impression that there was something more there, so maybe their book will be next. We'll see.

However, once the last of Nash's secrets was unearthed, exposing the actions a truly deadly and evil new enemy, that's where the action in the story really heated up.

And I LOVED it!

While the Silvertip pack were fighting the new foe, I held my breath nearly the entire time. But in Megan's stories, the good guys always (eventually) win, so our heroes do finally get their hard-won HEA, plus a little something that no one even considered.

Again, I LOVED that unexpected little something, too!

I'm not sure there was any way that the book could have ended any more to my liking, which wrapped up all of the loose ends and left me with a warmth and rightness that I couldn't even explain.

This was also an extremely steamy read, with as much give as there was take (yes, sexual euphemism, sue me), but never feeling as if the scenes were gratuitous.

In regards to reading this story as a standalone, I really wouldn't recommend it, as both the characters and their history had a *lot* of crossover. Plus, book 1 was equally great, so I'd definitely start at the beginning.

I adored this story from start to finish, so I can't give any less than a full 5 stars for this fun and compelling continuation in the Silver Tip pack saga.
