The next installment of the Branded Packs series by Alexandra Ivy and Carrie Ann Ryan.


Gibson Barton knows his Pack is on the verge of something they will never be able to prepare for: a chance at freedom. Yet when he’s finally able to open his eyes to what might be his fate, it could be too late.

As a submissive wolf of her Pack, Mandy Calhoun has always only watched Gibson from afar. Because of her fears, she hasn’t let her intentions toward him—or the other in her sights—be known.

Oliver Dare is the Foreseer of the Ursine Pack, and knows with each vision, his death is that much closer. Yet he cannot see his own future—or that of the two wolves who have been thrust into his path.

There is danger lurking in the den, and as the three learn to process their emotions and navigate their temptations, they’ll have to fight for something they never knew they had—or sacrifice it all for a purpose far greater than their own destinies.


Sinclair, Alpha of the Unseen Pack, is determined to destroy the Shifter Accommodation Unit. He understands that his people will never be free until the truth is revealed and their enemies are brought out of the shadows and exposed to the public. Unfortunately, the human female who has been secretly working with him has disappeared, and his priorities must shift slightly. He’s resolved to track her down, and not just because she has the information he needs.

Mira Reese isn’t stupid. She’s painfully aware that the sexy shifter she’s been working with has been using her fascination for him to gain access to the CDC computer system. But that doesn’t stop her from helping Sinclair. Not when it allows her to be close to him. But after the CDC kidnaps her, she realizes that this isn’t a game. She’s a potential savior for the future of the shifters—and perhaps especially the loner wolf who stirs her passions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from "Buried and Shadowed" by Alexandra Ivy and Carrie Ann Ryan. Book 3 of the Branded Packs series. I read this book in August 2016. This was my review. This third book in the series is an ending to the overall series story plot. The shifters are trying to expose that humans started the Verona Virus 25 years ago the killed millions of innocent humans and that shifters actually helped with finding a cure. The authors let us know that this is not the end of the Branded Packs series. It will continue on with a new story arc. <b>BURIED</b> by Carrie Ann Ryan - <b><i>3 stars</i></b> I liked this novella. It's a menage story so the main characters are Oliver, Gibson and Mandy. The story line was good but I didn't find it progressed the overall series plot. It really had nothing to do with the shifters fighting the SAU (Shifter Accommodation Unit). Also, the actual "menage" was skimmed over really quickly. I found myself wanting this story to be longer. I would call this "menage light" because you don't really "see" any menage. Oliver is a bear shifter and likes his privacy. He's the Foreseer of his pack and his visions have been really strange lately. He's never seen loved ones in his visions before but now he's seeing the future of Gibson and Mandy, the two people he has feelings for, fighting for their lives. Gibson is a wolf shifter and he's just become the Omega of his pack and trying to deal with everyone's feelings is very overwhelming. But when he's with Mandy and Oliver, it's much easier to focus his new powers. Mandy is a submissive wolf shifter and she's not sure how to approach Oliver and Gibson. Her wolf knows that the two males are for her. But as a submissive, is Mandy strong enough for a relationship with two males? Is she even brave enough to say what she wants...out loud? <b>SHADOWED</b> by Alexandra Ivy - <b><i>5 stars</i></b> Wow! What an ending to a great story line! Sinclair and Mira are two characters that have been introduced in the previous books and they finally get their story told. The sexual chemistry between them is HOT. The story line is very fast paced and very exciting. There's even a sub-romantic plot between two other characters that I hope we'll see in future books. Loved this one! Sinclair is a wolf shifter and the Alpha of the Unseen Pack. Mira is a human woman who has been working as a spy for Sinclair in the CDC. When Sinclair can't contact Mira, he knows something has happened to her. Their "relationship" might have started out as boss and spy but Sinclair has more feelings for Mira than he thought. He has to find her and make sure she's safe. If she has the proof to bring down the SAU and shifters can be free? Well maybe they actually can have a real relationship together. Mira knows that Sinclair has been using her for information. All his flirting was just a way to get her to do what he wanted. Well, she's over that. She's not risking her life just for him but for all shifters and humans alike. The world needs to know the truth and she won't sit on the sidelines any more. Even if Sinclair is only trying to protect her, he's not her boss anymore. <b>OVERALL REVIEW</b> I really enjoyed reading this book. Fun, fast paced, humourous and sexy. Each story flowed easily. All the characters are very likable. Overall, it's a really good ending to the overall story arc and I can't wait to see what happens in future books.
