|Sage finds himself thrown out of his pack (by his father) for being gay. Lucky for him, he had purchased a little town online so he has a place to go. Of course, when he gets there he arrives to find an incredibly run down and decrepit town. He drives to the house he's determined will be his home and finds it sagging. Yes, sagging. Then he enters and sees broken furniture and trash everywhere... then he hears a sound. That is when he discovers William, a smallish man hiding in his house. William is terrified of Sage (since Sage is so much larger than he) and because in general he is very fearful. Did I mention the name of Sage's town is Mystery?
I thought it was cute that William and Sage are very attracted to each other and yet are almost afraid since they don't know the other was gay. Five of Sage's friends leave his old pack and join him in this town. While they joke about taking bulldozers to it, they all chip in and help with the repairs. Ms. Hagen sucked me in with this story, the mystery surrounding what happened to Mystery and what William's story really is. I couldn't put it down until I got to eighty percent when I forced myself to stop for dinner!
I guess I read a lot M/M (gay) novellas, as it doesn't surprise me anymore to read about the character being thrown out of his family for being gay. It usually disgusts me, but it doesn't shock me anymore. This is a good story. I really liked Sage and William growing to like and love each other, and I liked Sage's newly created family. The rogue wolves and the mystery are really interesting, as is the introduction to Santana, whose story will be released at the end of March. I apologize for not giving you more details, but this IS a mystery. We should be discovering more in book two, and I can't wait!
