Blurb: Teague Sullivan and Jack Barnes work in the dangerous gray area between the natural and supernatural worlds, helping people who get separated from the safety of Green’s Hill find their way home. Teague’s in the game for redemption—but Jack’s in the game for Teague.
Teague is damaged, haunted, and about the loneliest man Jack has ever met, but Jack sees beyond Teague’s scars and gruffness to the kindness and bravery underneath. Teague is pretty sure Jack’s a green idealist—a scarred old dog like Teague will never be good enough for a sweet young pup like his Jacky.
When Jack is injured, the two hunters are sucked into the paranormal world they’ve been defending. Teague must reevaluate everything he’s believed about their relationship. While Teague is sorting out his life both with Jacky and as a member of Green’s Hill, Katy steps into the mix. She’s loved Teague since she was a child, and that love has only gotten stronger now that they’ve survived into adulthood. Teague Sullivan, who has lived “without” since he was born, is suddenly given all the things that make live worth living “with.” Does Teague have the courage to reach for two lovers and a place on Green’s Hill?

Review: The completionist that lives in my soul is soooo happy that the Green’s Hill werewolf stories are getting their own reboot through DSP Publications. Look at the pretty covers! And now all these shorts are grouped together in one place! Which really is the perfect way to read them; they’ve integrated totally seamlessly into a whole unit now. It’s perfection. And we can start filling in the gaps these previously missing stories left in the main Little Goddess story arc because of the quasi-out-of-order re-release schedule. So satisfying.
Teague, Jack, and Katy are wonderfully drawn characters, Teague especially. His motivations and emotional struggle are sympathetic and compelling. Jack, well, I just want to strangle him all the time, but really, that’s how everyone but Teague feels about Jack, so I’m in good company. In the first volume, Katy is the most mysterious of the trio. We mostly see her through Jack and Teague’s eyes. What I know so far about her is interesting and likeable, but I’m hoping we’ll get more of her in volume two.
We’re only in the first volume of two for the werewolves, so there’s a bit of a cliffhanger, of course. Not too bad, and volume two is only days away, so don’t be dissuaded from picking this up. It’s everything that readers of the Little Goddess series have come to love about these stories. You get more of your favorite characters, more Amy Lane Angst™, more fun urban fantasy and story building, and more of Teague (whom I love). If you haven’t read the Little Goddess series and are a fan of urban fantasy, get on this series. You will adore all the wonderful people on Green’s Hill. Just, you know, bring tissues.
