Overview

The Talon Pack continues with a new twist to the Packs and a revelation no one was prepared for.

Mitchell Brentwood is aware that others think he’s the harsh taskmaster Beta trying to keep his Pack alive, but they only see what he wants them to know. He’d once thought he had his path laid out before him, but when his future was violently ripped away, he vowed he’d never let anyone close again—especially not a young wolf from a traitorous Pack.

Dawn Levin may be younger than the war that destroyed her people, but she knows she must still pay for their sins. She’s ready to find her way in this new world where wolves and humans blend as one, but first, she needs to fight her attraction to the dark wolf that stands in her way.

While the two struggle with their feelings and burning attraction for each other, they can’t ignore the world that shakes beneath their feet. There is a new enemy on the horizon, one with revenge and the unknown on their minds. An adversary that might be closer than they realize.

This is another wonderful book in this series. Mitchell had a great loss and was having a time of it. Then came Dawn. Now that things were quite and they were getting back to normal as it could be. Another threat has surfaced. If you haven't read anyone series of Carrie Ann's then you should they are all really good books.

Destiny Disgraced is book six in the Talon Pack Series from Carrie Ann Ryan. Just like always Carrie Ann Ryan blew me away with Mitchell and Dawn's story. The clever author finally took this much loved world to a whole different place with some very big secrets. My emotions were already gutted by the heartbreak Mitchell and Dawn, both of which were lovely characters, had gone through. Just as I was wondering if Mitchell would ever claim Dawn as his mate, a new Big Bad was introduced and became a threat to Dawn. Then Mitchell got all growly possessive and somehow it looked like my worries were for nothing. Then came the big secrets that were revealed in this already exciting series. Let me just say it was about time that cat got out of the bag, so to speak. Destiny Disgraced was beautifully written with amazing characters, steamy romance, a loaded for action plot, and new mysteries to explore in future books. Carrie Ann Ryan knows how to keep this series interesting and fresh and her readers always hungry for the next book. I can't wait to find out what comes next in this wonderful paranormal world ! I received a complimentary ARC of this book and voluntarily provided my honest review

*Disclaimer: I received an eARC of this book from InkSlinger PR in exchange for an honest review. This does not influence my rating or the content of my review in any way. It seems that I've been on a roll lately discovering paranormal series that I need to read ASAP and that's making me super happy. I've only read Carrie Ann Ryan's contemporary books, and I am happy that I decided to try out more of her work. As I said before, I love to see how each author describes the myth of the shifters, and while I don't know the full explanation included in the Redwood Pack/Talon Pack series, I liked what little I got to read about in Destiny Disgraced. The idea that there's an outside force, called the moon goddess, that blesses shifters with the mating and pack bonds was really interesting and new. I liked the fact that just because they received the blessing of the moon goddess didn't mean that they couldn't lose it, although some stuff revealed during the book makes me wonder about the motivation of this moon goddess. I am hoping she'll reveal herself during the next few books. I also liked the whole mating concept. It wasn't the usual approach I've read time and again, which was really nice, and I loved the idea that Ryan introduced in her book. I'm very curious about how triads work, so I'm really keeping my fingers crossed that I'll read about that once I get to read the earlier books. Mitchell was an interesting hero. His full story and his reasons for staying away from Dawn are revealed little by little during the story, but once you learn the full story, you can completely understand his struggle with this mating bond. It was tragic to read about, and you can tell that he has the potential of being a much stronger male, but because of his past, because of what he went through, he's truly scarred and hurt. And I found it truly amazing and it made my nerdy side really happy to see that some details from the cover of the book not only are they found in the story itself, but you also learn the why of it. Can't say more than that because of spoilers, but I had to say just that. Dawn was also a very great heroine. I found that she was a truly strong female, one that had the potential to be something more but because of her Pack's story, she was lacking the opportunities for them. I ached for her because of that, because her true potential wasn't being fully explored due to something her ancestors did. I liked her spirit. I liked that she could be a badass and defend herself and her friends when they needed protection, and at the same time allow herself moments of vulnerability. She and Mitchell are a perfect match, really, and I was truly happy that they found themselves. The interesting thing about this book, and I can only hope this is something that happens with all books, is that every now and then, you get a chapter told in some different character's POV. I found that intriguing, not just because it teases about the next book's main characters, but it also shows you just a tiny piece of the puzzle, just enough to get my interest piqued. The story is truly well paced, and I managed to read it in one sitting. I found that although I knew nothing about this world, I was able to read without feeling lost. I felt the need to know more, but not in the sense that I couldn't understand what was happening or that I was confused by the lack of knowledge. As I said in the beginning, I'm truly happy that I got to read this book and that I've

Carrie Ann Ryan’s DESTINY DISGRACED is an exalted addition to the Talon Pack series. Beta of the Talon Pack, Mitchell Brentwood and Central Pack maternal dominant, Dawn Levin, have different reason for trying to fight their attraction to one another. However, unexpected circumstances keep throwing them together. This contemporary PNR is suitable for adult audiences. Carrie Ann Ryan continues to do an admiral job with her character development. I really like Mitchell. My heart broke for what he went through. He kept a major burden to himself for a long time. It is understandable why he kept Dawn at arm’s length. Dawn is a sweet character you cannot help to adore. She is strong and nurturing. She is young and hard working. She has some great friends. They are good for each other, making each other stronger. I love the dynamics between the individuals and their wolves. The plot was exciting and skillfully executed. There are some interesting things going on with the Aspen Pack. DESTINY DISGRACED was thought-provoking and thrilling throughout. I’m looking forward to Walker’s and Aimee’s story. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

ARC - I voluntarily offered to review this book with no obligations and my opinions are honest! I felt bad for both Mitchell + Dawn. They were both 2 lost souls in their own pack. Mitchell will do anything to protect his pack, but at the same time he kept his distance. Dawn have a family, but their are not part of a pack. Wolves need a pack to be whole. The attraction is there, but their are to afraid to do anything about it. Until the kiss! Will "friends with benefits" be enough for both of them ? They could be mates. All the signs are there. They just need to complete the mating. Meanwhile, danger is lurking within the packs. Will Mitchell step up to the plate when danger comes for Dawn? Loved the storytelling of this book. I can't wait for Walker's book.

Destiny Disgraced Talon Pack Book 6 by Carrie Ann Ryan ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Destiny Disgraced is book 6 in the Talon Pack series. I enjoy that this is a fantastic addition into the series. It's a interesting book that features a new pack, failures, a double-cross, insecurities of a pack, triumphs, and challenges to the pack. Carrie Ann Ryan is a talented and gifted author, who continues to give us Awesome books to read no matter what genre. Her main characters along with the supporting characters are what makes this book so unique, she creates fabulous world for werewolves, it has a depth that you will thoroughly enjoy, this is Mitchell Brentwood and Dawn Levin story.  I absolutely enjoyed reading this book, I did have one issue which is that the story had to end. Mitchell is the Beta enforcer he's whose job it is to try keep the pack alive. He is aware that the pack think he’s a harsh taskmaster which he takes full advantage of by never smiling. Dawn Is the younger generation of Central wolf Pack who was born to pack after their parent escape from the old Central pack. She is strong maternal wolf but submissive this means her wolf’s true calling is to be a protector of children. Her wolf needs to nurture and care for the young of the Pack. Yet without any pups within their den walls, a part of her will always feel broken. Even though Dawn refers to herself as a submissive wolf, I think she has an inner dominant streak. While Mitchell and Dawn struggle with their feelings and attraction for each other, there is a evil force that they can’t ignore. their pack and their allies must face the new enemy, one with revenge and the unknown on their minds. An they are closer than they realize. I love and enjoy the way these characters interact and the support that they give one another. I like how loyal Dawn friends are and the fact they understand that she kept secrets from them that's true friendship. I hope that they each get their own story, as they are off on their own adventures. This book and all of the Talon Pack series are so incredibly great at entertaining the readers. This book is action fill with tension that makes it a great page turner. I am a great fan of Carrie Ann Ryan ability. ABSOLUTELY fantastic story and a highly entertaining read! The story pulls you in from the first chapter in till the end. The character development was on point. The heroine was flawed but yet full of strength. The romance is everything you enjoy reading.The suspense is never overdone. Each book in the series can stands on its own, however for optimal reading pleasure, you’ll want to read them all. If you are look for a fabulous read go ahead and start with this book. You will enjoy Carrie’s writing and her wonderful sense of humor. THIS IS A FABULOUS MUST READ! I certainly recommend this book to readers that is looking for a Phenomenal read. I voluntarily reviewed this book, because I love and can't resist reading Carrie Ann Ryan books! I enjoy sharing my thoughts with my fellow readers

5 NEW ADVENTURES STARS!! Here we go again with new adventures and lots of action. Mitchell and Dawn have all kinds of things happening and you can't turn pages quick enough with all the surprises. Carrie Ann Ryan keeps her fingers typing these magic words that has us readers wanting more. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

Another great installment in the Saga of the Talon Pack and the Redwood Pack (if you've been reading from the start). Loved that we finally got the back story on broody Beta Mitchell and the drama and angst between him and Dawn almost did me in! But of course Ms. Carrie doesn't leave us hanging and in the end they get their HEA... However - this is just the beginning of this second arc of the Pack wars and there is still lots more to come in this continuing part of the story. Can't wait for the next book!!

I voluntarily read and reviewed this advanced readers copy of this book. Carrie Ann Ryan has written another wonderful book. The book captured my attention from start to finish. I loved how she weaves her story lines. They are wonderfully thought out and cleverly written. I hope the next books in the series will be just as good and I cannot wait to read them.
Rainn2978 More than 1 year ago
Wow, just wow with this book!! Ok, I know I am a huge Carrie Ann Ryan fan and I love all her books (whether paranormal or contemporary) but this one just blew me away. At the end of the last book the war had ended but not without loss and heartbreak. And I do mean heartbreak. But I know I was left wondering about the mates and happiness for the rest of the Brentwood family. Mitch has always been one of my question marks. Like why is he so distant from the rest? Was his father even more horrific to him than some of the other's parents? What the answer truly is just boggles the mind! Mitch is helping what is left of the Central pack learn how to defend themselves and how to take care of a pack. Dawn is the "Alpha's" little sister. She and Mitch have chemistry but neither believe that the other is for them. Until other events start to happen and make them truly realize just what they feel for each. These events also lead Mitch to tell not only Dawn but his whole family just what had happened in his past to shape him into who he is today. It definitely wasn't what I was expecting. But it explains so much!! All that being said, they are perfect for each other! I love how even though neither want a mate, they still care about each other and want the other to just be happy! They are such strong people that they tend to put other people way before themselves, and it's a beautiful thing! There is much more to this book than just their romance. You see how Max is faring after the end of the last book. You get to see how other couples that we saw in other book's are today. And then on top of that there is a new threat to not only the Talon's but to all the other clan's as well. Along with a twist that no one, including myself, ever saw coming! I love the new story ARC that is happening and can't wait to see where this book series leads us next! It definitely left me impatiently waiting for the next book. I can't wait to see how not only the story ARC progresses but also to read the HEA of the other Brentwood family members, along with the Centrals! Great read!

Everything Changes! Carrie Ann has kept both the Redwood and Talon pack series fresh and new by adding new twists and changes to the plot and characters periodically. Destiny Disgraced is another one of those points in that series. Mitchell Brentwood has a secret, one he hasn’t shared with anyone, one that’s affecting the rest of his life. One that is directly challenged when he meets Dawn Levin and his wolf responds in a way that he feels betrays him and his past love. Not only does he fight the mating that he believes should not be happening but he fights his feelings of betrayal to his long-lost love. Dawn, on the other hand, is a young wolf, one of the youngest in a traitorous pack that is struggling to regain their full packhood. Her brother is on the cusp of being alpha and everything is about to change, and hopefully she’ll change too, having a purpose other than being a barista. When her wolf lunges for Mitch, she insists she’s not ready either, waiting to see what her future entails, loyal to her pack and brother. Forces outside their control are plotting to destroy them and the other packs and move in the shadows to tear Dawn and Mitchell apart, not to mention the fragile peace that has been created. Can both of them overcome their past, their history, and find peace and forgiveness in the new world? I loved this story, as I loved all of the series. Mitchell is a total badass, cranky wolf, only getting worse and Dawn is a strong, independent woman who is determined to stand on her own two feet. Their romance was wonderful and fraught with danger and internal conflict, not to mention sadness and disappointment. And externally, the world takes on a new twist, with a new villain and new direction, which I loved. Carrie Ann keeps the world fresh, maintains ties to the existing characters, yet provides a solid focused love story for the main characters. I loved it and can’t wait for the next one!

Holy Moly! There is a whole lot going on here in so many different ways and different areas. And wow, there are tons of emotions involved! You can't help but feel for growly Mitchell, hoping he'll find his peace & happiness. And you can't help but love Dawn from the get go. I can't tell you how many times I was in tears or fighting them, so he prepared! But your gonna love every minute of it!! Can't wait to read the next one!

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. Carrie Ann Ryan has done it again! I've enjoyed all of the Redwood Pack and Talon Pack books so far, but this one was on a whole different level. A confused beta, and a barista from a pack that isn't a pack, but could be a pack? I was hooked from page 1. Mitchell has a secret. One that no one that is alive knows about. And it is eating him up inside. Dawn is unhappy. She doesn't know who she is or who she is supposed to be. But what they both know, is that they don't want to be mated. I love that there is a HEA, but also a cliffie that leads to the next book. I love the continuing family stories and visits from previous characters. There is always a lot of action in these books, but also a deep sense of family, love and loyalty to balance that out. As Carrie Ann Ryan has said, there is a new "Big Bad" introduced in this story, but there is also a lot of internal conflict within each character. And let's not forget, a Big Surprise that she has thrown in there to keep us on our toes. I never saw it coming, but can't wait to see where she takes it! Another fabulous story in the Redwood/Talon Pack World!

Destiny Disgraced is the sixth book in the Talon Pack series. It could easily be read as a standalone, but like any series, it is always more enjoyable if you know the back stories of the other characters in the books. This is Mitchell, Beta of the Talon Pack and Dawn, sister of the soon-to-be Alpha of the Central Packs story. There is a lot happening in this book and the author throws a completely unexpected twist into the storyline that will impact the future significantly for all shifters. I can't wait to see where she goes with this in future installments of the series. I must say that I loved Mitchell and Dawn's story. Their interactions with each other were wonderful and the sex was hot and steamy. Neither of them wants a mate, for their own personal reasons, but they cannot resist the potential mate pull. I'm glad that they at least recognized rather quickly that that is what was going on between them, because that is probably the only twist in the last book in the series that I didn't like where the author was going with it. I love shifter stories when mates instantly recognize each other as such, even if they don't love each other yet. Lots of things are changing in the shifter world, but how they don't instantly recognize their potential mates wasn't one of my favorite twists in that book. Having said that, watching Mitchell and Dawn work through their attraction was fun to experience. The only complaint I would have about their story was Mitchell's reason for denying his mate. It was very reminiscent of Adam in 'Enforcer's Redemption' Redwood Pack book 3. With Adam my heart was bleeding for the struggle he was going through in accepting his mate, Bay. With Mitchell I was more annoyed than anything. SPOILER ALERT............ Once Mitchell admitted that his previous mate Heather never accepted his wolf, and had never even seen it because she was afraid of it, I wondered why the heck he was still mourning her 35 years later. Not only did she never accept it, or even want to see it in the entire year they were mated, but she was adamant that she never wanted to be turned as well. So she was fine with her mate having to watch her grow old and die. She just came across to me as very selfish. Then, to make it even worse, the human part of Mitchell was able to fall in love with Dawn, but it was his wolf that felt it was a betrayal and fought the potential mating all the way. Why the wolf felt that way I did not know since Heather never accepted him. She wanted to live in her own little selfish world where she could pretend that Mitchell was completely human. I was really hoping that when he finally told everyone about Heather that one of them would say exactly what I'd been thinking. But they all seemed to just think it was very sad and that he had a right to feel that way. Maybe if he had a loving mate that accepted his wolf and wasn't a selfish little twit I would agree, but it didn't come across that way to me. END SPOILER......... So once Mitchell's wolf finally got his head out of his a** and accepted Dawn completely, they were able to be together as mates. Totally worth the read to see that happen. They may have been fooling themselves over what kind of relationship they could have, so when everything finally came together it was a wonderful ending to another great story in the series. The author did introduce which characters would be the main love interests in the next book, and I am looking forward to it, but I a

Emotionally gripping, heart pounding action, danger and an intriguing twist that will change their world forever. This latest Talon Pack adventure has it all and them some! Mitchell Brentwood sexy, smart and viewed by all as a total hard ass beta, but he is also a man hunted by the future that was violently ripped away from him (closing himself off seamed like his only option to go on and help save his pack). Dawn Levin is young, bright, sweet, sexy and lives with the stigma of being from a traitorous pack who's sins she must always pay for it seams. The struggle to fight their attraction for so many reasons is gripping and real. Looking forward to the next Talon Pack.

Destiny Disgraced is Book 6 of the Carrie Ann Ryan's Talon Pack series. These books stand fine on their own if you happen to pick one up mid-series but it's such an awesome set I recommend going back to the beginning. After the unveiling which occurred in the other books, there is a new threat in town. Definitely didn't see it coming although I did have to ask myself, why not? LOL I LOVED Mitchell and Dawn. They had an instantaneous spark that flew off the pages. Very enjoyable! Hard to believe but each of Ms. Ryan's stories get better and better. I say that every time but she raises the bar each and every time!! I am on pins and needles until the next story. Hopefully it's finally Walker's turn.

WOW! This is the 6th book in the Talon Pack series and it just keeps getting better. We finally see why Mitchell is the broody one of the bunch and I cried for him. Dawn is young and didn't know the war that ended her pack. I loved how she helped to heal Mitchell, ok they get their HEA so we know that is a given. BUT of course Ms. Ryan is not going to let the wolves enjoy peace. Something is coming and we get just a teaser of what that could be in this book. Just the beginning, so by the end even though there is a hard fought for HEA we are sort of left hanging wanting to know what is next. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.
