With His Wolf:

  • Ben had given up entirely to his wolf under the influence of LittletonBB-

With The Pack:

  • not an out werewolf at this timeBB-

With His Previous Pack:

  • Terry had been the pack’s second in London, in Ben’s first packRe-
  • He worked for the Alpha, who was a loan shark. The whole pack worked for him, really, but Terry got paid for it. Terry’s job was to go collect from people who weren’t making their paymentsRe-
  • Shortly after Ben was Changed, he was sent to tag along to make sure matters were discreet. The Alpha felt that Terry might forget himself and hang around until the police came byRe-
  • after his real IT job, Ben got to trail Terry around three days a weekRe-
  • Terry didn’t just beat up the people because they weren’t quick with their money; he beat up people because he liked it. Ben’s real job was to stop him before there was a dead bodyRe-
  • Terry went hunting with Ben as observer; sometimes it was one of the other wolves, but mostly it was Ben—and Terry liked that part of it, too—and so did some dark part of BenRe-
  • And so it went for almost a year and a half, fourteen victims. The fifteenth lay unconscious on the floorRe-

With His Parents:

  • Back then, he’d been a good kid. He’d done exactly what he was told. The destructive anger and black despair that drove him now, that hadn’t affected him much yetRe-
  • But he was afraid, so afraid, that she knew. And if she knew . . . his world would self-destruct and take him with itRe-
  • even as he walked down the stairs to his father’s study, some part, the hidden, angry part that was growing inside and would, eventually, consume him, understood that she had to know. She was such a good mother, everyone said so. Her son was well mannered, well-groomed, and did well in school. Wasn’t he lucky to have such a good mother?Re-
  • Ben had come a long way from the good little boy of his childhood. He’d gotten in more than a little trouble that his father’s money had bought him out of. He’d never hurt anyone, but he’d done about everything else. He still wondered about the fate that made him end up a werewolf instead of dead in a dark alley of an overdose or a knife in his bellyRe-
  • It hadn’t escaped his notice that he’d taken on the role of his mother, which was bad enough. But the thing that made it nigh unbearable was that he liked it. When the woman screamed, it was his mother’s voice he heardRe-
  • The woman was like him, like Ben. A victim. And he could take the easy route, like his mother had, as he had been doing all this time, or he could stop it.Re-
  • He cut Terry’s throat, then ripped off his head. He left the body in the poor woman’s apartment.Re-
  • The wolf who ruled the rest of London had decided to take over the rival packRe-
  • The new Alpha didn’t kill Ben, but the police were looking for Terry’s accomplice. So he’d exiled Ben to the good old U. S. of A., and Ben had been given to Adam to see if there was anything worth saving inside Ben’s skin.Re-
