Release Day Review & Excerpt! Dusk by Alyssa Rose Ivy




Dusk (The Dire Wolves Chronicles #2) by Alyssa Rose Ivy
Genre: New Adult (Paranormal Romance)
Date Published: January 12, 2015
Publisher: Self

The Dire Wolves Chronicles continue...

After you have sacrificed your freedom what else is there to lose?

Mary Anne has given her word to Hunter that she’ll stay as his mate, but every second she spends with him takes her further away from Gage when he needs her the most.

Caught between love and duty, Mary Anne discovers that her troubles are just beginning, and that sometimes love comes at a great price.


Dusk is book two in the Dire Wolves Chronicles by Alyssa Rose Ivy. It's official. Of all the shifters that I've learned about so far within the Society. I'd want to be a Dire Wolf. They're pretty awesome.

So, this series has turned into a love triangle. I'm Team Hunter all the way, but this is one of those situations that I really have no clue who Mary Anne will pick when it's all said and done. It's all leading in one direction, but will she stay that course? I have no idea. I feel all out of my element because I usually know, at this point, who the guy will be whether I'm his fan or not. I dont think Mary Anne really knows either(although she thinks she does).

Within this book we met a few  more characters, learned about another kind of shifter, and the drama and tension just keeps building and building. I need more of this series!

The ARC of Dusk by Alyssa Rose Ivy was kindly provided to me by InkSlinger PR for review. The opinions are my own.



“Hunter?” she asked in a low voice as we sat in front of the fire downstairs. We’d started back with our favorite evening ritual, only now she sat right at my side. The rest the pack was giving us plenty of space. There were benefits to being Alpha.
“Yes?” I smiled at her. She was so beautiful. I zeroed in on her lips, needing to claim them with my own.
“Tell me about your dreams.”
“My dreams?” I put an arm around her and pulled her down into my side. I could feel her heartbeat and that put me at ease. “What kind of dreams?”
“What kind do you have?”
“The usual types I guess.”
“Are they ever about me?” She looked up at me with those expressive eyes of hers.
“You mean now? Are you asking if I dream about you?”
“Now. Before.”
“Before? Why would I have dreamed about you before I met you? How would that be possible?” Someone had told her something. That someone was going to be in a lot of trouble.
“How is it possible that you’re a wolf? I’m starting to believe that anything is possible.”
I ignored her use of the term wolf. It wasn’t worth an argument. She’d start calling us Dires eventually. “Do you really want to know?” The can of worms had been opened. There was no turning back.
“Yes. Why else would I ask?”
“Come here.” I gestured with my hand.
“I am here.”
“On to my lap.” If she wanted something from me, I was getting something from her.
“You want me to sit on your lap?”
“You know exactly what I’m asking you to do.”
She put a leg over mine and straddled my lap. She settled herself down, awakening my body even more than it already was. “Happy now?”
“I’m always happy when you’re with me.”
