Former Navy SEAL turned alpha werewolf Jake Huang was just hired to lead a team for STAT, the Special Threat Assessment Team, a covert government agency assigned to supernatural cases around the world. He meets his new pack, his team that includes other werewolves as well as human agents, and immediately gets sent on his first assignment.

Agent Jestina Riley is the lone survivor of a supernatural attack on her STAT team. She suspects a werewolf was responsible, so she’s not thrilled when Jake is sent in to help her complete her mission. Jake, on the other hand, is immediately attracted to Jes and starts to think she’s The One, his fated mate. He’ll have to teach her the truth about werewolves before he can win her over, all while trying to find a supernatural kidnapper.

The STAT series is a spinoff of Paige Tyler’s SWAT series. Both Jake and Caleb, another member of the STAT team, are introduced in that series. But I’m a few books behind in SWAT and didn’t feel like I missed anything jumping in to Wolf Under Fire.

One thing that made this book feel different from SWAT is that not all of the team members are werewolves. Tyler gets to introduce some interesting new supernatural types to her world, like Misty the technopath. We finally find out that vampires exist in this world, though we don’t meet any yet. It also allows Tyler to show just how different her werewolves are. For example, it takes Misty three minutes to run the same distance that Jake covers in thirty seconds.

Tyler’s books always feel like action movies to me. The latest is no exception. Wolf Under Fire is action-packed, full of car chases and shoot outs and explosions. It’s like a supernatural Mission: Impossible. I thoroughly enjoyed it! I’m also excited about expanding the SWAT world, seeing new locations and new kinds of supes. I look forward to seeing where the series takes us next.
