Book 2 in the Mad Dog series.
Four geological scientists go missing in the Swiss Alp’s when they apparently wander into Arimaspi territory. It is up to the Mad Dogs to retrieve them because the whole situation stinks of the Organization.
However, it’s not Organization Operatives the Mad Dogs encounter but instead the Watcher who is obsessed with the Unit, especially its newest member.
I read Sixth (the first book in this series) and loved how different it was. And that drew me into the series as a whole.
In this book we get to spend more time with the Mad Dogs and get to watch as Brian starts to grow closer to each of them. I loved how each character was expanded upon in this book and so we were able to connect with them all a little bit better.
There is of course the drama and action that happens, with the twists of Markus realizing that he now has a new third form. I also loved the inclusion of the Watcher, and I have a feeling that he is going to end up playing a very important role in this series!
Routine training for the Mad Dogs turns out to be anything but routine for Brian Hay. Finally bonded to the rest of the pack, there is only one last step to make him an official Mad Dog: meet the Council representatives.
What should have been standard operating procedure between the Mad Dogs and the Council turns into a mission like none other they had been sent on before… to save Markus and Brian.
I can say that this book kept me on the edge of my seat wondering what was going to happen next! It seemed like the pages couldn’t turn quick enough on my kindle because I just had to find out what was going to happen.
After already being invested in this series, the fact that Markus and Brian are taken, it destroyed me and I was almost in tears while reading — hoping that the other Mad Dogs could get to them and save them.
This is a true series and so it must be read in order, but it is totally worth it in my opinion.
There were so many twists and turns in this book that will keep you wondering, and interested, and trying to figure out who exactly is on the side of the Mad Dogs, and who is against them.
