Pack Ebon Red


The Seven Mates of Zara Wolf #1


C. M. Stunich


Reverse Harem


I am wolf; I am human; I am neither; I am both.
I am werewolf.
And I have seven Alpha Males as my mates.
All mine to kiss and hold and touch, seven handsome men for my bed.
My boys represent the biggest packs in North America.
But I am the Alpha Female and I rule them all.
One day, the packs might force me to choose.
But my heart, it won’t allow it. Things could get…bloody if I have to fight for my boys.
For now, three glittering dark courts threaten our existence with their glamorous cruelty:
the vampires, the witches, and the fae.
Werewolves are missing from all the packs, and my boys and I, we have to find them.
Or find out who’s killing them.
Because I’m the mistress of my men, my packs, a girl known simply as White Wolf.
I’ve promised to protect the men I love, the family and friends I cherish.
And the White Wolf…always keeps her promises.


4stars rating

You know, I have to admit, I was really pleasantly surprised by this book 😀
As you might have seen from my line-up of books read, I read a lot of RH. So finding one that isn’t “same old, same old” was nice and made me wanna grab for book 2 right away!


As this is the first book in the series, there is a lot of info and worldbuilding going on. Actually, you could say that it’s most of the book.
Strangely enough, this is not a bad thing! The author writes it in such a way that it feels natural and well, just getting to know all the players on the chessboard. Very well done!

Character development:

Was good. We got introduced to all the pack members and characters that are important. We got to know a bit of backstory for some, while the others remain a mystery. Of course, since every pack is getting their own book, we will get to know each and every one of them in time. Patience isn’t really one of my virtues, but then again, more books, yay 😀
That said, Nic isn’t my favourite, he is kinda whiny at times, not wanting to fight for his right to be one of the potential mates. And while I do understand his reasoning behind it, it just didn’t do it for me.
Zara does feel a tad too good at everything at certain times so I’m looking forward to how that will evolve during the series.

Pacing & Flow:

Were good, a nice balance between everything that is being explained and keeping the forward momentum going without feeling rushed.

The book itself:

The book itself was well written with no (noticeable) errors. There is sex described in this book (if that is important to you).

Final Thoughts:

All in all, a good start to the series and I look forward to reading the second instalment sometime soon(TM)!
