Roane leaves the Fury werewolf pack to make room for his brother, Merrick, and his new mate. A natural alpha, there's nowhere Roane can go in wolf country and not stir up trouble. He settles in a town called Tranquility and immediately raises the hackles of the local pack leader.

Luckily this was a freebie. However, if this is a "taster" to the author's work than I will be avoiding anything she writes. I'm not a huge fan of this sort of "literature" however, I thought - lets try it. What a waste of 10 mins (the length of the story)..
I've read paranormal romance before (Christine Feehan), but there was very little "paranormal" to this story and even less "romance"

The "plot" fades away, the characters are one dimensional, the romance non-existent, and if you're hoping for

I hadn't previously read anything by Anya Bast before I read FURY, so I have no idea if TRANQUILITY is part of an ongoing series or something the author is writing separately to release as just the two interrelated short stories.

That being said, I liked the concept of the shifters, of being a Shadow, of the OtherKin in general. I enjoyed Roane, who is the brother of Merrick, the hero from FURY. When Roane realized that Merrick and Nikki (the werecougar who the elders of Fury had chosen as Queen)

This book and the one before it do not give me much faith in Anya Bast. As a short story, it truly isn't one. They meet, have sex, and poof, it's love! Even the paranormal destined mates angle can't save this one. Hopefully, her full length novels come with a little more knowing of the characters...

This one was better than the first one, sort of. They are sexy short stories and as such, suffer from instant attraction and screwing. I actually thought this one was pretty well done, and I even liked the plot, such as it was. There were a few editing issues that were overlooked, but it happens.

It was quick and free.
Only 28 pages and somehow the author makes it work. You get a beginning, a middle and an end that come together nicely in this short, passionate story.
Another lying cover, saying it’s a free read but it’s really not however, it’s only $0.99.

Again, there could have been a lot of story here, there was a lot of potential that could have made this book so much better.

Because it was such a short story it just moved much too fast. Personally I feel like she could have left out the two of them saying I love you to each other and it would have had more of an impact. Or maybe if the story had been more specific in how long he had been there.

Like the first one, this one just jumped right into the middle of a storyline thought. This one worked better for a short story read than the first one in my opinion and maybe that's because I knew what to expect, but also because the story line itself made more sense to me and had closure when it came to its end.

I at least recognized the hero as a secondary character from the first story, but the setting was new because he left town after his brother's mating because he didn't wan

Another free short story from Anya Bast, Tranquility picks up the story right after the end of Fury. Roane has left his home & his pack so his brother can be alpha & now he just wants to find somewhere to call home. He has no intention of challenging Marcus for the alpha position but Marcus is scared of Roane's alpha nature & wants him away from his territory. Marcus asks his sister to keep an eye on Roane but it all backfires when they can't keep their eyes (or hands) off each other ...more

Merrick in Fury and Roane in Tranquility live up to my standards of what makes alpha-wolves the sexiest other around. Strong. Confident. And all about pleasing their women.

Great book - This one was easier to read because I was more Familiar with the Outer Kin - at least the wolves -

In this story, we watch Roane (Which was Merrick's brother from Fury) as he picks up his life. Once he left Fury in order to let Merrick and Nikki be the Alpha's, Roane wanted to start over in a new town. but being who he is, a born Alpha, it was hard to blend in with another pack.

When he reached Tranquillity Minnesota, another town strictly wolf shifters, The town's Alpha Marcus was
3.5 stars

Good sequel to Fury. In the sequel, Merrick's brother Roane, has relinquished Nikki and the Alpha role in Fury to Merrick, and has moved onto another Shapeshifter community to try to find a place for himself quietly among others of his kind. But, it is quickly discovered that he is an alpha and no one can accept that he will not challenge the current Alpha, Marcus. Marcus asks his sister, who Scarlet, who is already drawn to Roane - as he is to her - to keep an eye on him by working in

3.5 of 5 stars.

After reading the first book, I really wanted to know what would happen with Roane. I was pleased to find that I liked him more than his brother, Merrick, the hero of the first book.
The fact that the two stars are werewolves caught my attention right away since I'm a sucker for paranormal romance. Roane is a natural born alpha who has no desire to be leader of a pack. He just wants to live peacefully amongst his own kind in a were community and be left alone. However, the current

I just love Anya Bast. She writes in such a way to both intrigue her readers with interesting characters, sound plots, great action and hot romance. This is a short but sweet novella featuring a great story line.

Roane has recently moved to the town of Tranquility because in order for him to stay with his old pack he would have to fight his brother to be the alpha and take away his brother mate. He wants neither so, he moves away. Although he does not want to be an Alpha, he also does not want to

All right, to let you know, I only grabbed both 'Otherkin' books as they were free, and about were's, and weren't YA cuz I'm really tired of YA with it's carefully worded no one says 'damn' and other editing for the semi-innocent. Seriously, I think my first word may have been damn and well, a good cuss is a great stress reliever IMO. Have to admit there's a bit more smut than I anticipated, but as luck would have it, the books were a quickie read - yup, all pun intended there - and also had som ...more

We briefly met Roane in Fury and now it's his turn. This book takes place after Fury so it is when Roane has left the Fury pack to allow Merrick to claim Nikki and become Alpha King. He is on his own but admits that he doesn't want to become a 'lone' wolf. He likes having pack around him. He settles in Tranquility for unfortunately for Roane, he is such an Alpha male that the current Alpha of the Tranquility pack senses aggression even when there isn't any.

Tranquility picked up where Fury left off with the neglected brother Roane finding his place in the world without his pack, his brother or his rule. The first half had a more realistic, somber tone compared to Fury. But it was waaayyy hotter. At least for the first half. All the despairing I'm caught between a rock and a hard place (for everyone—not just Roane) kinda weighed down the enjoyment. That, and the antagonist being the love interest's brother. That's just sad. Still a cool read, just k ...more

Roane Nathy just wants left alone but the citzens of Tranquility don't seem to be buying it. Marcus leader of Wolven doesn't believe anything that Roane says especially him not wanting to be Alpha. Roane continues to tell the same story even to Marcus's sister Scarlet. Scarlet is constantly on edge especially around Roane despite his protests that he wants to be left alone. Yet Scarlet believes herself above being attracted to Roane and Marcus puts this to a test. Roane is a mechanic at Morgan's ...more

Quick story takes place after Fury as you know. I liked Roane's character from the first story so much that when Fury started and Roane concedes to his brother without fighting for Nicki and just leaves the pack knowing he had to go off on his own. Well, I just stopped reading and found Roane's story and started reading that instead. Scarlett was not a typical pushover which I liked. Roane and Scarlett know there's chemistry, shall we call it, animal magnetism between them and they try to quench ...more

I really enjoy novellas, and since I’ve read “Fury” by Anya Bast, “Tranquility” the second book in the Otherkin series seemed like a good choice. And it really was a nice short read.

Like the most novellas, “Tranquility” is fast-paced and it keeps your interest from the very beginning. Here we have the story of Roane, Merrick’s brother, who left his pack and goes to another one in order to be far away from his brother and his new mate. But he is an alpha male and it’s not easy not to challenge t

Another Kindle freebie, I just finished reading Anya Bast's previous book, Fury, and this is the one that deals with the second brother. Who I found more interesting than the brother of the first book. I enjoyed his character a lot more and found him with more depth in comparison.

The plotline of this book held promise and in general had a better build up of the players involved. I would have liked to have had some more history of this new town and it's pack. The main leading lady could have use

Nice sequel to the series. So, Merrick's brother, Roanne finds his 'mate' in another pack. Scarlet just happens to be sister to the Alpha leader of the pack. Marcus is kind of possessive or overprotective of Scarlet, but Merrick wont let her go. So, what's he gonna do to have Scarlet be with him? (And yes, she feels the same about him though, no worries there). If you guessed a fight, u got it right! Only Merrick doesnt kill him, but lets him go; this makes him Alpha now, even if he doesnt want ...more

So Roane finds an other shifter town to make a new life, the town called Tranquility.
