    One thought on “Pack Dynamics”

    1. I picked this up when it was Book Bombed on Monster Hunter Nation. I was intrigued by nanotech enhanced werewolves. What can I say, I'm a sucker for the classics. In any case, fun book, good action, quick plotting. The characters decent, though maybe drawn a bit broadly. Similarly, there were a couple things that are either indications of a sequel, or just loose ends that slipped through editing. Or to be completely fair, maybe I just missed stuff cause I was enjoying it so much I was going too [...]

    2. Good bookDoesn't seem to follow any formula, and has lots of action. Interesting characters. I'm looking forward to her next book.

    3. Wow. I dove into Pack Dynamics with only a vague idea of what to expect from it--"nanotech werewolves and killer bunnies" were basically my only expectations--and I am pleased to say that this is probably my new favorite werewolf book.Ben Lockwood is a combat veteran with severe post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) who's been hired to investigate suspected corporate espionage on a pharmaceutical/nanotech company. It was supposed to be an easy, I-can-finish-this-from-my-desk job No such luck. Be [...]

    4. This is a very interesting book with a simple premise: corporate espionage. Ben Lockwood is a veteran of Afghanistan, who was captured while serving and tortured by the Taliban. Since returning home and working through PTSD, he works a desk job for his girlfriend’s mother’s PI Agency. The Agency is working for Jarrett Biologicals, looking into possible espionage. One evening, Lockwood is kidnapped and tortured by employees of Hans Ostheim’s pharmaceutical firm. Ostheim has been spying on J [...]

    5. Pack Dynamics is a paranormal/urban fantasy, though you could also argue some sci-fi elements as well. In short, it's about werewolves and vampires and nanotech, and a veteran with PTSD who has a very bad, no good, really awful couple of weeks. Okay, perhaps it wasn't all no good. But it starts off with him being tased, abducted, interrogated and dumped in the street, and it's mostly downhill from there. Caught up in the middle of industrial espionage and powerful people with dark secrets, he's [...]

    6. I'm DNFing this one at about 43% because too many of the plot points rely on supposedly intelligent and safety-conscious people making really stupid decisions. I also thought that the main couple's relationship basically being built entirely on him being damaged and her wanting to fix him was not really healthy.Which is unfortunate, because the pacing was good, the writing was engaging, the characters were fairly likable (most of the time), there were exciting action scenes sprinkled throughout, [...]

    7. Pack dynamicsA really really good book. Werewolves vampires and nanotechnology what more could you want.A werewolf wants to save his vampire wife from death and he tries to steal a rival's nanotechnology to save her. They just happen too believe their better than everyone else. The rival is someone trying to do the right thing and doesn't want to get involved with the paranormal. Throw in a pi with ptsd and a girlfriend whose very productive and you have a nonstop book. This is a stand alone boo [...]

    8. I like Julie Frost's first novel. The characters are unique and interesting. The story moves along nicely, although a couple of times I thought characters didn't really think things through, and ended up creating more problems for themselves. Alex and Megan ARE clones of Tony Stark and Pepper Potts, even if Megan is a werewolf and Alex doesn't have a clue. I really was expecting them to end up together at the end of the book. Ben and Janna are cute and I really want to know more about Alex's but [...]

    9. Nano-Tech und Werwölfe - dazu noch Killerbunnies. Perfekt, so mag ich das. Mehr musste ich nicht lesen und schon war das Buch bestellt. Und es enttäuscht nicht.Es startet etwas langsamer, aber ist dann nach wenigen Seiten angekommen in einer packenden Story, die mit hoher Geschwindigkeit voranschreitet.Julie Frosts erstes Buch macht Spass, was will man mehr? Es bleiben noch einige Fäden der Handlung ein wenig offen, und ich bezweifle, dass die Prämisse Werwölfe und Nanotech in dem Setting n [...]

    10. It was a fun read, but I felt there were some editing issues. A couple spots where the wrong word was used and some spots where it seemed obvious that a chunk of story was cut out and I kept going back to see if I had missed something or if things really didn't make sense there.I understand it's the author's first novel and it shows some talent, so I think I would read more books by her, but this one is still a little rough. I did enjoy it though.And in regards to the character's issue with "fix [...]

    11. A solid book by a first-time author. The nano-tech is interesting and how it ties in with the werewolf aspect is unique. I had the pleasure of meeting Julie at the SLC FanX back in March (and she signed my book!). I would like to read more of her writing and see where all this goes. A definite genre-bender!

    12. Great first bookThis was a great read. Although, there were some issues for me (people not exactly acting like their life is truly in danger, repetitive mistakes from characters, etc) I find this to be a tremendous first novel. I will definitely read new releases from this author.

    13. It was OK, but not great. The characters were kind of bland. Sure they each had their own character, but there just wasn't any character arcs. It was as if something crazy and life altering happened to you, but you didn't actually change or grow in the process.

    14. Overall an enjoyable story with solid action and likable characters. Will be interested in seeing this continued.
