    1. One bright and shiny star awarded for a kick ass heroine and one for the unusual aspects of the anti hero and his interesting mix of jaded soldier and werewolf shifter I have been thinking long and hard about why this book and I did not gel Werewolves Covert operations A human trafficking ring A misunderstood anti hero A kick ass female partner Double crossing Yes to allThat should be right up my street and yet I was left as cold as the title of the book although instead of a run it dragged I re [...]

    5. I made the pleasurable mistake of reading this really late last night and the result was that I stayed up until morning to finish it.The MC dynamics of this story was entertaining and the story was awesome and kept me going until the very end I loved that the Keller was a wolf in and out of his four legged form And I loved that Karen doesn t take any shit.This isn t a love story at least not in the conventional sense, but the undertones are there It is also not a fluffy paranormal story, it is a [...]


    6. A conspiracy, a shirtless romance cover, a werewolf, an attractive operative, urban paranormal suspense Now that that s out of the way Even if you don t normally go for those things, A Cold Run is also a damn good story Keller has a centuries old need for justice and a real disdain for authority, in this spy thriller suspense that pairs him with Karen the M 4 sharp shooting operative who might be his redemption, equal, or downfall and Tell, the contrary chain smoking, disgruntled handler When Ke [...]

    8. WOW Cold Run is not what I thought it d be I was pleasantly surprised Shifter books are one of my fav s but Cold Run isn t your typical shifter romance Nope, not even close Dangerous missions, black op type situations and a smart mouthed MC sums it up Rick Keller is forced back into a life he d rather forget No one likes being drugged and then waking up with a collar not even a werewolf As long as Keller can deliver the bad guys, he can return to the sedentary lifestyle However, one wrong step l [...]


    9. I received an ecopy of Cold Run in exchange for an honest review.Although the story starts out a bit on the rough to register side, about midway through you will catch on It is a great story once you start to understand it I think maybe there was a bit too much left out in the beginning If you can power through a few hard chapters you will not be disappointed The book gets really awesome I am glad I kept reading, and I would definitely recommend this book to others with the understanding that th [...]


    10. I truly enjoyed this book I will be reading many of her other books This one was very interesting to read and hope to one day find out there will be a movie made from it.



    11. Cold Run really surprised me in places it was a paranormal shifter novel and in others it was a mystery crime thriller novel about some pretty dark subjects human trafficking which was dealt with up close and personal and in a very real way I enjoyed what was a pretty unique shifter novel.I was expecting PNR from cover but I d probably call it paranormal horror thriller there s virtually no romantic content and it s pretty gory and disturbing in places so do be aware of that before you pick it u [...]


    12. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review This review may contain spoilers.I m a bit unsure of how to rate this book I did like the storyline It was good to see a paranormal book from the perspective of a male character and I did like Rick as a character While he didn t have as much of a smart mouth as was implied by the narration, some of what he came out with did make me smile and I thought his character had a lot of depth.By the end of the book, I really didn t like Tell ev [...]


    13. This is the second book I ve read by Ms Brune, and it certainly won t be the last Cold Run is an exciting adventure from start to finish, and Ms Brune displays her brilliant ability to tell a fast paced, action packed story with humor, direct language and wonderful descriptions The story races from one country to the next, and the pace never lets up as the characters work to break a human trafficking ring But there are any number of surprises as you work your way through this book, and the main [...]


    14.

    15. What Angela thought 5 starsWOW Cold Run is not what I thought it d be I was pleasantly surprised Shifter books are one of my fav s but Cold Run isn t your typical shifter romance Nope, not even close Dangerous missions, black op type situations and a smart mouthed MC sums it up.Rick Keller is forced back into a life he d rather forget No one likes being drugged and then waking up with a collar not even a werewolf As long as Keller can deliver the bad guys, he can return to the sedentary lifestyl [...]


    16. I received this book in exchange for a review.Rick is a werewolf that has left a top secret organization He is forced back into the organization but doesn t really know why He is abused and tortured before finally leaving on the mission The book started out very slow for me I think a lot of explanation is left out about the background of the book The book does need some formatting I also thought the ending left you just hanging It isn t really explained why he betrayed by one of his partners on [...]


    17. What a joy to read a well written, well crafted story I am not a werewolf fan, by any means, but I was immediately swept up in Rick Heller s adventure and found myself in complete sympathy with the character His plight is horrific and the people who he needs to trust are the ones most ready to do him harm, it seems The plot moved along at break neck speed, but allowed for a few quiet moments of calm where I could catch my breath and worry about what would happen next.Nicely done, Ms Brune


    18. Plot 4 starsCharacters 3 starsNarration 3 starsEditing 5 starsI felt like I was dropped in to an existing, ongoing story I didn t really sympathize with the protagonist, though I understand he s literally a lone wolf by choice In fact, I didn t really connect or even like any of the characters.This might be the first book in the series, so there s lots of room for additional details, but overall I felt left out of things.Lots of action and swearing.


    19. 1st I received this book in return for my review 2nd this book was OK and I say that because the story is there I can feel it, but wither I missed something or there is a lot of back story that just isn t there in this book I feel like there should have been a little info on what and where the main character comes from You get snip its of it same with the rest of the characters But overall action packed book and I felt it could be great with just a little


    20. Cold Run was an interesting take on shifters Between the conspiracy, the characters and the great writing it was hard to put down A very action packed thriller about an old shifter called out of his solitary retirement, his new partner and their handler trying to find out who the ringleaders are in a new human trafficking trade.A very well written original story.
