Logan’s used to a very normal life so when someone blows up his truck, he has no idea what to think.  When Rave and later Tony show up, Logan has even more to wonder about, especially when he finds out there’s more to them than meets the eye. 

Rave is the ninth book in the Zeus’s Pack series.  It tells the story of Rave and Tony, both characters we met in previous stories.  It also introduces their third mate, Logan.  All three characters are strongly written and pull you right into their story.  I liked that the author did not have them fall into a tight relationship right away; in fact, there is quite a lot of tension between the three and not all of it is good.  When they finally do come together, they really burn up the pages. 

There is a fair amount of twists and turns within this story, as well.  First, there is the mystery surrounding Logan.  The author does a wonderful job bringing the confusion Logan feels, due to the fact that someone is trying to kill him, as well as the strange feelings and abilities he is developing, across realistically.  At times, I was just as worried about the young man as the rest of Zeus’s pack was.   

There is also the issue of jealousy and self-loathing that Tony feels at times.  Without giving anything away, the readers will have an easy time understanding why Tony has the issues he does.  I liked that it was Logan who helps the agent start to understand that he can still take what he needs. 

Lastly, there is the issue of the ‘flying men’ and what they mean to Pride Pack Valley.  The author has several series that have cross over story lines.  While it is not necessary to read the other series’, it does keep you from being slightly confused.  As I am not reading The Exiled series, I did not know the story behind the ‘flying men’, yet the author fills the unknowing readers in very well.   

Between the main characters, the returning secondary characters and the multiple twists in the story, Rave is sure to entertain and is a great addition to the Zeus’s Pack series.
