Another interesting addition to a very imaginative m/m erotic series that introduces very sensual characters who have survived personal traumas. This is a very sizzling entry that shows that there is just as much trouble with acceptance within the pack as there is with outsiders. Hopefully there will be more tales that show all of the intriguing members of the pack in a little more depth as I think that they deserve at least a novella if not longer stories!
“Dark Reign 4: Fight or Flight” by Mychael Black introduces another complex individual into the pack that is comprised of unconventional pairings. Daniel meets the enigmatic Eric Salvatore who has plenty of secrets that must be revealed although he quickly helps Daniel discover the joy to be found in the type of relationship being shared between the pack leader Marcus and his lover Jordan but not everyone is accepting of the new arrangement.
My name is Daniel Hughes. I've been living under the protection of Marcus Deleon and his pack for several years, and let me tell you, it's a lonely life. Then Marcus' vampiric lover, Jordan Silva, introduces me to his best friend, a vampire named Eric Salvatore. Keeping our hands off of one another proves impossible, but there are secrets that Eric carries which could destroy him. I'm not about to let that happen.
Meting out justice on the vampires who attacked him years ago is the easy part. Dealing with the fallout when the pack discovers the truth about Eric? That's another problem altogether. But I refuse to give up on him... even when he should never have existed.
