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

Wow. Equal parts sexy, heartwarming, heartbreaking and eerie creepy crawly darkness. Carrie ann ryan has definitely hit it out of the ballpark with the story of Mitchell and Dawn.

Mitchell you will really feel so much for. He has gone through alot and his devotion to the love he once had is heartbreaking. He takes it to a stubborn level. But he is also kind and caring, loyal and fierce. He comes off as a baddy and he is to an extent. But he is also a teddy bear. He protects his pack with all tha

I struggled to find a book to end the year on a good note - so I'm glad I found this one. I've read one other book of this author's a while back but I didn't like it. But this one, I really liked :) Will have to read some more from this series in the new year :)

I have been anxiously waiting to read “Destiny Disgraced” and it didn’t disappoint. I loved getting to know more about Mitchell’s back story and it was heart breaking. And I loved how Dawn and he finally gave in to what their hearts had already decided for them. I did see the “twist” coming and I can’t wait to see what happens next. I am definitely looking forward to Walker and Aimee’s story next and what is coming for the shifters. I was hoping the next book would be Max’s but maybe his will be ...more

The only reason I only gave this one 3 stars was because I was sick of Mitchell bringing up Heather his first mate who never really excepted his wolf or wanted nothing to do with that part of his life. To me that was a slap in the face for who he was and something she was ashamed of, can't see why he would mourn her like he did.😏 Dawn I really liked who seemed very caring but lost without a true purpose, she did kick ass when it came to it and was a good match for Mitchell.😉

Mitchell, the Talon Pack's Beta, knows how people see him, and it's exactly what he wants them to. He loves his family, but he prefers to keep part of himself back, the part that doesn't want to get hurt again. He's lived through loss once, albeit decades ago, and doesn't want to experience it ever again. Even with Dawn, the woman he can't stop thinking about, craving, kissing...

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

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.

I really do love this world that Carrie has created both in the Talon Pack series and the Redwood Pack series and how they crossover. I couldn't wait to read Mitchell's story and I just knew that Dawn was perfect for him. Of course theirs isn't an easy path which has been true of each match made. I absolutely adored Dawn. She was so strong with so much to deal with as her past didn't make the present any easier. I love that Carrie not only gives us warriors in the men she creates, but does the s ...more

I have loved every book that I have read by Carrie Ann Ryan. This book sucked me in from the get go. There was a couple times when I got annoyed with Mitchell and his way of thinking, mostly just wanted to yell at him to stop being so stupid and see what was right I front of him! Happy that everything is gonna be able to work out for Dawn. Can’t wait to see what happens next and see how these two grow

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

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.

The constant stress that the packs have lived under since The Unveiling is finally gone. They have entered a time of peace. However, when you are like the Talon pack, a pack that has lived in stress and unease from within or outside for years, this doesn’t necessarily feel better.

This is tricky for all of them, especially Mitchell, the Beta of the Talon pack. His job is to keep the pack safe, help with the day to day operations of the alpha, but something feels off. When he runs an errand for th
I am finding myself falling back in love with the Talon Pack. A few books back I started to think that things felt stagnant and maybe that Carrie Ann Ryan was trying to refresh the series by taking it in a direction that just took away from the original feel of the series but now that feeling is back and I couldn't be any happier.

I loved the bit of creepy feel that Carrie Ann added to this story. The antagonist of this story is all sorts of f'd up. Just when you think that the packs are going t

"Destiny Disgraced" by Carrie Ann Ryan. Book 6 in the Talon Pack series.

Such a good book! This book is Mitchell and Dawn's story. And what a story it is! Even though this book is the 6th in the series, it really reads like it's a first book because a whole new story arc is started. A new bad guy is introduced, new shifter Packs are revealed, and the shifter world is expanded introducing new characters and new shifters. Ms. Ryan does an excellent job of creating an ominous feeling of foreboding,

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 ...more

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book

It’s been a year since the end of the war and the Unveiling things should be good for the Talon Pack, but something new is coming and it has all the packs on edge.
Mitchell is the Talon’s beta, he’s one yummy but grumpy wolf. He’s been keeping a secret from his family for years, nothing that could hurt them mind you, but it’s a secret from his family and it’s a doozy.
Dawn is a wolf from the Central pack, well they aren't a real pack yet.

I LOVE THIS SERIES!!! The Talon Pack is one of my favorite shifter series and just keeps getting better and better with every book!!

Mitchell & Dawn are probably my second most favorite couple of this series (first being Finn & Brynn). Mitchell is broody and closed off and with a reason I didn't see coming. I understand that he lost someone, but that someone, at least to me, didn't really love him for him. I understand that what happened to her, put a scar on Mitchell's soul and that is why he is

Anticipating the release of the final book in this series, I realized there were a few I hadn't read. I need to catch up and this is where I left off.

Change is coming to what's left of the old Central pack. Everyone feels it, Dawn's brother Cole is set to become Alpha of the new pack once the Goddess blesses them. The Talon's and Redwood's are doing all they can to help prepare him and support him. Blade, the Alpha of the Aspen's isn't as supportive and in some respects is downright hostile alth

While I may not be a newbie to Mrs. Ryan's books and writing. I am more of a newbie to her Paranormal series. I've been a fan ever since the first Montgomery Ink book. Though I have read two of Mrs. Ryan's paranormal books but those were in the Redwood pack. So this is the first one I have read in the Talon Pack. Even though this was my first book in the Talon pack I do believe that these books can be read as stand alone's. But you may want to read the others so you can understand what's going o ...more

DESTINY DISGRACED is book six in the Talon Pack series and though it can standalone, it's better to start with book one to get the full effect of all the bonds and connections between characters. This is an older man, younger woman/second chance paranormal romance (wolf shifters). Let's talk first about the intricate and elaborate world that Carrie Ann Ryan built.

As with all of the books in this series, I was drawn in to Destiny Disgraced from page one, my heart hooked on the plight of these two characters and their struggles both alone and within a relationship.

Carrie Ann Ryan has a way of pulling the heart strings with the obstacles standing in front of her characters, though we see their strengths - sometimes their weaknesses are harder to distinguish. Mitchell and Dawn both have secrets they've kept from those they love. Secrets they've kept out of

Another great installment to Carrie Ann Ryan's Talon Pack series! Ryan has several series, but her paranormal have a special place in my heart! I love the world she's built in the Talon Pack series.

Dawn is just Dawn, or at least that's what she keeps telling the world. She describes herself as the daughter of a daughter of a daughter of a disgraced pack. All she wants to do is protect and soothe her not Pack. As a maternal wolf, its hard to find your place when there's no pups to care for. So sh
