REVIEW: The Pack or the Panther by Tara Lain


Cole Harker, son of an alpha werewolf, is bigger and more powerful than most wolves, tongue-tied in groups, and gay. For twenty-four years, he’s lived to please his family and pack—even letting them promise him in marriage to female werewolf Analiese to secure a pack alliance and help save them from a powerful gangster who wants their land. Then Cole meets Analiese’s half-brother, panther shifter Paris Marketo, and for the first time, Cole wants something for himself.

When Analiese runs off to marry a human, Cole finally has a chance with Paris, but the solitary cat rejects him, the pack, and everything it represents. Then Cole discovers the gangster wants Paris too and won’t rest until he has him. What started as a land dispute turns into World War Wolf! But the bigger fight is the battle between cats and dogs.

There is so much that I liked about this book! The characters are all so vivid and I especially liked Cole and Paris – our heroes. Cole is just so endearing while Paris is adorable and fun. They go well together because they balance each other so well. Their conflict felt natural and made for a very compelling read.

There are some hard parts, but the worst of it is short and it all only makes the characters stronger as people. There’s a decent amount of shifting which I always appreciate in a shifter story, and the ending is just so sweet. I can’t wait for more!

Bottom Line:

The Pack or the Panther is an awesome start to what is sure to be a great new series from the fabulous Tara Lain. Her books always grab my emotions and leave me happy, and this one is no exception.
