#BookReview – ‘Too Far Gone’ by KC Stewart


Tired of her horrific past continually being dredged up and broadcast all over, Sadie James leaves her hometown to start over. But her new Adirondack home has secrets and dangers that change everything for her.

Wolf shifter, Tyson Cartwright is mourning the life he once knew. His past haunts him as he reluctantly relinquishes his human side. But when, newcomer Sadie James comes face-to-face with Tyson's most vile enemy, he vows to protect her--no matter the cost. As Tyson and Sadie grow closer, he struggles to keep her safe while battling his own demons. Suddenly, he must choose between saving Sadie and ultimately destroying her. Can he fight the pull of the wild or is he too far gone to save the one woman he's destined to love?


In book one of the Adirondack Pack series, Sadie James is suffering from PTSD after a traumatizing event a year earlier and has just moved to a small mountain town in upstate New York for a fresh start. While exploring the woods around her new cabin, she stumbles upon a snarling, drooling wolf and fears that her life is finally over. Instead of attacking her, the wolf attacks another wolf, saving Sadie, and then follows her home. Sadie begins to think of the wolf, which she named Fred, as her pet, but still fears him a little since he’s a wild animal.
Tyson Cartwright was once the pack enforcer but gave up his pack after a personal tragedy. Now he runs wild in the forest in his wolf form and suspects he’s falling deep into madness, but then his human side starts to reemerge as he finds a new purpose in living with Sadie. Unfortunately, Tyson is not the only wolf who wants her. He’s determined to protect her but fears he will hurt her himself.
I really liked Sadie and Tyson. They’re both emotionally damaged from past experiences and found a kindred spirit in each other. Sadie and Tyson (as Fred) became good friends, but she didn’t find out Fred was really a shifter until the very end of the book. Because of that, there wasn’t much romance and no sex scenes in this story. Their story continues in another book, however, and I’m sure that story will show them falling in love.
I enjoyed the pack dynamics and how the wolves interacted with the humans in their town. There are great secondary characters, like Lee, Owen, and Vince, and I’d like to know more about them.
This shifter story is a little different from what I’m used to reading. It’s separated into three main parts with individual chapters. Part one is mostly in Sadie’s POV and sometimes in the villain’s. Part two is in Tyson’s POV and shows everything that’s already happened in part one, but from the hero’s perspective. Part three takes place where both the other parts end and is in both the H/h’s POV.
Though I enjoyed this story, there are some typos that led to confusion at times. There are also unanswered questions, but those will probably be taken care of in the next book. Anyway, the overall plot is solid and the characters well rounded and likable.
3.5 Stars
