UK Giveaway: The Pack - Jason Starr

Next week is the UK release of The Pack, the first book in Jason Starr's new urban fantasy series and thanks to Berkley UK (part of The Penguin Group) I have 5 copies to giveaway to some lucky UK winners!

Let the hunt begin . . .

When Simon Burns is fired from his job without warning, he takes on the role of stay-at-home dad for his three-year-old son. But his reluctance pushes his already strained marriage to the limit. In the nestled playgrounds of the Upper West Side, Simon harbors a simmering rage at his boss's betrayal.

Things take a turn when he meets a tight-knit trio of dads at the playground. They are different from other men Simon has met, stronger and more confident, more at ease with the darker side of life- and soon Simon is lured into their mix. But after a guys' night out gets frighteningly out of hand, Simon feels himself sliding into a new nightmarish reality.

As he experiences disturbing changes in his body and his perceptions, he starts to suspect that when the guys welcomed him to their "pack", they were talking about much more than male bonding . . .

Check out this video of Jason Starr talking about the book for more information:

What do you think? If anyone has already read the book I'd love to know what you think of it.

  1. I have two UF series I adore - Kelley Armstrong's Otherworld and Jim Butcher's Dresden Files. Both series have evolved and expanded their worlds since the first book - and I always want to know what will happen next!

    Thanks for the giveaway! :)

  2. I have a hard time choosing any favourites as I like so many books. However Patricia Briggs' Mercy Thompson and Tanya Huff's Blood Price ones are at the top of the list :D

  3. There's a fabulous series I used to read about elves that drove racing cars, but I can't for the life of me remember the titles. Think one might have been wheels of fire? Author is Mercedes lackey I think.

    1. Yesir is Mercedes Lackey. She has written two series' in the same Universe. They are the 'SERRAted Edge' and 'Elves on the Road' series'.

  4. Ermm a couple of my favourites are Chess Putnam series by Stacia kane, Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews and Charley Davidson series by Darynda Jones :)

  5. @ Mel - I've read the first few books in Kelley Armstrong's series and really liked them so I must try and read the rest. I think the last book is being published this year so that should make it easier to catch up lol. I've heard a lot of good things about the Dresden Files so that's another series I'll have to check out, thanks for the recommendation.

    @ Ilona - I love the Mercy Thompson books but haven't tried anything by Tanya Huff so I'll have to add her series to my wish list!

    @ liveotherwise - a series about elves driving racing cars sounds so odd that it has to be good if you see what I mean! I'm definitely going to have to investigate those :o)

    @ Ilona - thanks for the info about Mercedes Lackey, does it matter which order you read the series in if they are set in the same world? I'm just dying of curiosity to read about the race driving elves!!

    @ Holz - I love the Charley Davidson books & I really enjoyed the first Kate Daniels book too (another series I need to catch up on!). I've not read any of the Chess Putnam series but it's one I've heard good things about.

    Thanks for all the recommendations everyone - keep them coming, I can never have too many books on my wish list lol

  6. I haven't read all of them yet so I am not sure if they are all best read in order (I've read books one and two only). More about the series is here:

  7. Thanks for the link Ilona, I'll check it out & decide which one to read first

  8. My favourite Urban Fantasy series? Cassandra Clare's The Mortal Instrument series. I love it so much and I practically devoured the books as soon as I got my hands on them. :)

  9. @ MiniMangaFan - I've really enjoyed the first couple of MI books, it's another one of those series that I still need to catch up on but hopefully I'll get to them soon. I really want to start her clockwork series too
