Human Daniel Baker and his Alpha wolf mate, Mace, were out foraging for useful building parts when they were attacked by female soldiers from Daniel’s former home compound. Mace requests a meeting with the humans to discuss a possible treaty between the two groups. However, instead of meeting with Daniel’s former council, Mace is subjected to all kinds of mistreatment at the hands of a psychotic female Major.

Revelations is the second book in the Wolfman series. This is a stimulating, well-written, well-paced, humorous story with great character interaction, in addition to having sizzling love scenes. The wolfmen were surviving victims of a virus which, during the first stages, men lost who they were; nevertheless they’re searching for who they are. Some, like Mace, retained the civilized parts of their humanity, while others totally surrendered to the instincts of a beast. In this episode, Daniel is in full snark mode in an effort to protect his chosen mate.

Mace discovers a small piece of his former life and is introduced to Daniel’s mother, who has the take charge attitude of an Alpha. Because of his love for Daniel, Mace showed Dr. Baker the proper respect due her. Dr. Baker is also willing to listen to Mace because she accepts her son’s choice to be with Mace. The secondary characters provide the conflict by exhibiting realistic social attitudes of prejudice, jealousy, obsessed with killing anything or anyone without rationalization.

Brannan Black has created another laugh-out-loud captivating installment to this series, ending with a teaser of new excitements to come. I look forward to more of Daniel and Mace, who have fast become one of my favorite couples.
