Story of my life.
The name's Joey Santana and my twenty-fifth birthday didn’t necessarily go as planned. In a world where supernaturals and humans live together, I was attacked, then saved by none other than the Alpha of the Los Angeles Pack. But with survival came a price. And I wasn’t sure if I was ready to pay it.
Fast forward and I’m waking up the next morning in some stranger’s house with a half-naked man coming out of a bathroom. Awkward. And it so happens to be the Alpha’s son, Reed Stone. Right off the bat, he knows I’m trouble with a capital T since there haven’t been any humans turned into supes since supernaturals were outed five years ago. But if he thinks I’m going to sit back and take whatever he’s got coming, he’s painfully mistaken. I might have been human, but I now have canines, and I bite.
We’re forced to work together to wade through the supernatural politics and threats that await me. Our personalities clash in a battle of wills for dominance as the two of us grow closer together to solve the biggest mystery of all—why the hell would my father want to kill me?
I had no idea what was happening the first time I shifted. My body and my world were contorted by forces I couldn't begin to comprehend. With no other options, I lived as a lone wolf, hiding amongst the masses of New York City.
Until the local pack sniffed me out.
Seeming to know more about my mysterious origins than I do, they forced me into a world I never knew existed. One where supernatural beings were being kidnapped and I had no choice but to get involved, or risk being next.
Sensing the wolves around me are hiding something, my survival depends on determining enemies from allies. Pack law states lone wolves must be put to death, but I'll gnash fang with any wolf who dares threaten my freedom.
Can I escape the tightening noose of their fatal law? Or will I be forced to high tail it to save my own ass?

I refuse to run forever. After breaking free from the Brooklyn Pack, I started a new life as a detective for the LAPD. Yet everyday I live in fear that the past will catch up with me.
Until... that dreaded day comes.
An uprising is brewing, and thanks to the revelation of my ancestry, it put a target on my back. Packs across the country have launched into a deadly hunt for yours truly.
A Vision Quest once predicted I would lead the Lunas, and I scoffed at the idea. But now that I see the barbaric treatment being forced on my people, I’m left with a choice that will change everything. Do I fight and claw to achieve the impossible? Or allow myself to be ... CAGED?
Forced to Scotland to face judgment for my crimes, I use that time to investigate who ordered the Luna massacre. Yet, with every piece of information I uncover, the list of possible suspects grows.
Faced with unspeakable violence, the Lunas have found their voices and are howling for a revolution. Freeing them—and myself—could be the first in a chain of events that will drag us into war.
With my companions by my side, and my fangs bared, I must make a final stand that will change the Lycan world forever…
That’s the question I have to ask myself after the death of my father. Plagued with night terrors and lack of sleep, I keep blacking out and finding myself in strange places. Reed has memories of me that I don’t have, and the question remains, am I going crazy?
Accused of murder, I make a deal with the shadiest supernatural in all of the supe district. And while this deal might keep me from behind bars, it has me chained to an open debt that one day he’ll come to collect.
After another human murder, the humans are pushing for the Registration Act even more with the support of Humans United and it’s looking bleak for supernaturals. The Senate is going to vote and it’s now just a countdown for when they’ll be coming for us.
Can we keep our freedom from the humans? Am I really going crazy? Or will our house of cards finally come crashing down?
Determined to forget the events that unraveled my pack a year ago, I dive into my work with the SIU to solve the case. But as I close in on the truth, I find myself a target for the killer’s twisted agenda. One far more sinister than I imagined.
Ghosts from my past resurface.
The drums of war sound.
With no other options, I must seek the help of old allies.
Unease crackles through the supernatural community at the battle looming before us. Sides will be chosen. Lives lost. Can I embrace the strength within and become the wolf I was destined to be? Or will I fall as yet another casualty in a brutal war?
I didn’t expect to survive death, but here I am and I’ve got questions—lots of them. Questions that lead me to a world I never knew existed in the shadows of the mundane. When I come face to face with a vampire who seems to have the answers I’m looking for, I find myself trapped in a game where I’m the pawn.
Someone is hunting me. No one is safe until I’m caught, but I refuse to be the prey. When the hunter becomes the hunted, they’ll learn I’m not as naïve as they think. That is, until the mastermind is revealed and nothing is ever the same again.
Will I be able to reclaim my old life? Or is the game just getting started …
Mackenzie Grey meets her match when she is kidnapped by the Brooklyn Pack and tossed between Sebastian and Jonah—the Alpha and the Beta. Being a lone-wolf in the city is dangerous, and now that the Pack has found her, so can every supernatural being in the Tri-State area. And not even her sarcastic, smart mouth can get her out of this.
When a string of kidnappings involves Mackenzie in supernatural politics, she questions her new acquaintances and finds unlikely allies. Can she escape Pack law and keep her freedom—or will she be condemned to an unwanted path.
This boxed set contains all four books in the Mackenzie Grey: Origins series plus a sneak peak at the first chapter of From the Grave in the brand new series Mackenzie Grey: Trials coming December 2018.
To save her life, Mackenzie had no choice but to turn Amy into a vampire. Wrought with guilt over it, Kenz searched throughout the supernatural world and found the impossible—a cure to vampirism.
Now, led by the villainous Elders, members of the vampire community are creeping from the shadows, united by their determination to claim the elusive cure. As the future Queen of the Lycans, Kenz finds herself tangled in the web of an impending uprising and left with only one choice... run.
Can Kenz return Amy’s mortality? Or will she lose her best friend to the crushing Nosferatu curse?
Forced from the sacred sisterhood of Valhalla warriors, spending my days in a haze of sex, drugs, and alcohol seemed an ideal way to dull the sting of all I lost. Until I was wrongfully accused of murder.
That left me with two options: run or fight to clear my name. Seeing as my head hadn't quite cleared from that last bottle of whiskey, running was definitely out.
Despite having what I consider to be a stellar disposition, I've acquired a laundry list of enemies. Narrowing it down won't be easy. But one thing is for sure: whoever it is knows what I am and won't stop until I'm dead or behind bars.
Out of options, I must delve into the supernatural underground I've tried so hard to avoid in search of help. Feeling more lost than ever before, I must own my truth to save myself. I'm not human. My kind no longer exist. I am...the last Valkyrie.
