I love when an author takes the time to write about the extra characters in the books the write. Does it matter if they do, not really … but it shows that they want their readers to know the character or who that character came to be. For me that is a plus.
Learning how Alex came to be is an interesting tale. Who he goes to for help provides to be even better. Will he end up helping or harming Rylee? What on earth is Rylee going to do with an individual who is stuck between wolf & man?
Ms. Mayer provides us with a short tale about how Alex came to be. She provides us with a glimpse of the man he was before becoming stuck between man & wolf. She provides us with who he is becoming. Then she wraps it into small & interesting mystery.
