Cursed a thousand years ago for the crimes of their forefathers, the warrior men of Lykaios are imprisoned to stay on their island home. One day, Fate turns their gaze upon them in mercy, sending a vision of their impending freedom to Theron, one of the Lykaia and a wolf shifter. Rylan Hawthorne, multimillionaire hotelier's son, is a wastrel. Because of this, he's encouraged to take some time to think on his father's ultimatum: grow up, or lose his fortune. He takes their family yacht on a trip through the Mediterranean, and for supernatural reasons, he finds himself on the island of Lykaios. Theron and Rylan's meeting locks a bond in place that's both instantaneous as it is arresting. Theron knows the man is his mate, but the man knows nothing of the Lykaia. Now, the lives of a pack lost by time are in the hands of an inexperienced young hotelier, and the wolf shifter who dares love him.
Cursed because of the actions of your fore fathers, your future truly within the capricious hands of fate, which is the half-life that Theron and his brethren have been forced to endure. While his homeland is gorgeous and hidden from view it is still a prison, as they can’t leave the island and time has moved on, until the fate of the Lykaia changes. Theron by Frey Ortega is first in an interesting story idea. I was looking forward to seeing how the author brought these warriors into the present. I was also surprised that the author decided to start the entrance into the future with Theron, beta in the pack I liked that I was surprised by this. Usually you see Alphas being the start off it was refreshing to see a beta take the lead. I got to know Theron more, I really did enjoy his character. He was angry with his lot in life and it was completely understandable. But you could also see just how much he cared for and wanted a future for him and his pack he is a strong character I very much enjoyed. He didn’t want to raise not only his hopes but those of his brethren when a future becomes possible. In spite of his fears, he was ready to grasp at that future. Rylan his mate . He came off as a spoiled little rich kid with more money than sense at first but he grows into an amazing character as the book goes along. I like a flawed character who can be redeemed like that. I wanted to see actual growth in this character and for me, the author did a great job of that. I thought the author had a wonderful idea and the premise was a bit unique. Wonderful chemistry and great story writing makes this a must read and the start of a great series.
