Parker Jamenson is the son of three Packs, the sole mediator between every Pack in the United States and Europe, and…he’s dying. He knows he doesn’t have much left in him and is in desperate need of a mate. But with the new and unyielding changes thanks to the Moon Goddess, he might not have as much time as he thinks.
Brandon Brentwood is the Omega of the Talon Pack and the youngest of his family. He’s not only one of the famed triplets; he’s also the most secretive. There’s a good reason for that, however, and when a shocking revelation meshes the past and present in a very unexpected way, he’ll look to not only Parker but also a disgraced human to save them all.
Avery Montag knows she’s the daughter of a traitor and doesn’t have much to give the wolves in the way of atonement. But she’ll do everything she can to pay for her father’s sins and find a way to end the war between the humans and the wolves.
When the three turn to each other in a time of unrest and for vastly different reasons, temptation burns and seduction beckons. Only, the past, present, and future are never as solid as they seem, and the path the trio thought to travel may just vanish before they’re ready.
Parker is in a unique position due to his somewhat complicated heritage and although he doesn't realise it, his role is pivotal if his pack is to survive. The Humans now know about the Werewolves and yep, you can imagine how divided and fearful many are. As this story starts, Parker comes home but his heart, the very thing that holds him together is fading fast and Parker knows without finding his Mate that he is very likely to die.
Okay, that sounds a wee bit melodramatic perhaps but the magic surrounding the packs is failing and it's getting impossible for any Wolf to sense their Mate. Brandon, as Omega, is the one most aware of the depth of the changes happening around them. Seeing Parker return brings back feelings he neither wants nor thinks he needs but it really is time to confront their past and move forward and here is where Avery steps in. Avery knows her father is responsible for terrible things and truly wants to make amends in any way she can. Unfortunately, she wasn't quite prepared enough and at this point in the book everything shifts as the author brings us a triad that's passionate and quite possibly doomed!
The bulk of Fractured Silence is really about the trust and loyalties of the Packs as they are tested in the most painful ways. Old prophecies become an intrinsic part of this book as the pace gathers for a truly harrowing battle with tragic consequences. I've barely touched the romance and that is because I'm more than a little disappointed. Avery just wasn't a heroine that I liked. She's up for anything and never seemed that bothered by all the changes in her life. I think I would have preferred a M/M (which isn't my preferred type of romance) story although freely admit the intimate scenes worked very well as all three explored just how their relationship could function happily.
This book in many ways ends a certain arc but the Packs still have enemies out there so I'm not expecting them to rest on their laurels too long. I'm curious about new characters we meet here and wonder how the next book will play out but for now, there's hope amongst the ashes as the Talon Pack remembers their dead and count their blessings.
