Jesse Hunter is finally trying to be an adult, but it still feels like an act. His place on the town council is a sham. He’s rarely called on to do anything. His boyfriend is grieving the loss of his mother, and while everyone seems to think he’s doing a great job caring for Sean, Jesse feels like he’s more of a distraction than a real help.



March is shaping up to be a bad month. First, random chance leads him to the realization that the town’s recent trouble is his fault. Then new werewolves come into town, and it turns out they’re also Jesse’s responsibility. He feels like he may be at his breaking point, and he doesn’t want to drag his friends and loved ones down with him. But how will he handle it alone?

The title is Stag and The Ash and it returns to Jesse and Sean's story. 

I felt like this story was just a really well written filler. We learn who sent the troll and how it comes from Jesse's past. Sean is struggling with the death of his mother, but mostly what he's become and how it affects him with the people around him. Jesse is trying to pull Sean out of his funk, while feeling guilty about the death and the troll, and protecting the town as well. 

During Jesse's perimeter checks, he runs into a large, white Stag. The purpose of said stag is unknown and why it's linked to Jesse is also a mystery. The Ash is the trees surrounding Jesse's childhood home, so I feel like there may be some importance there, between moreof his past and this white Stag. 

Again, this is a wonderful story with the addition of some new pack, but I feel I didn't learn much. Atleast in what the title suggests.I guess I'll have E to wait for the next book :) 
4 stars!



Author Bio

Sam wrote her first fantasy epic with her best friend when she was ten. Like almost any epic fiction written by a ten year old, it was awful. She likes to think she’s improved since then, if only because she has better handwriting now.



If she’s not writing, she’s almost certainly either reading or lost down a Wikipedia rabbit hole while pretending to research for a novel.
