Review: Gray Bishop by Kelly Meade

Publication Date: 10/21/2014
Series: Cornerstone Run Trilogy
Rating: 5 Stars

Official Blurb:

Some people need something to fight for…

With the attacks on their homes escalating and human half-breeds seeking sanctuary among them, the loup garou are reaching their breaking point. Two, in particular.

After failing to stop his little brother’s kidnapping years ago, Bishop McQueen angrily broods on his shame, though no one else blames him.

Jillian Reynolds is still dealing with a tragic accident that took everything she ever wanted from life. And her attraction to Bishop is only making things more difficult.

When word reaches them that Jillian's hometown is under attack, the Alpha takes Bishop, Jillian, and a group of enforcers to assist in the battle. And it is in this chaos that both Bishop and Jillian will have to face their pasts—and the true feelings they have for each other—if they are going to survive…

The war with the crazy triplets continues on in Gray Bishop. The triplets have attacked closer to home to the Cornerstone Run and its causalities will rip apart to packs. Without giving too much away, one of the McQueen brothers will have to live to his fullest potential to protect his pack and his love. When the challenge comes rolling into town, will this McQueen rise to the occasion or face final checkmate?

One of the best things about this book is that the story picks up right after Black Rook leaves off. Rook and Brynn are relishing in their happiness while Rook's brothers face the darkness still. This time around Bishop is at the helm. As a gray wolf, Bishop was never meant to be Alpha. Rook's decision to forego the Alpha position for his love of half breed Brynn leaves Bishop as the next McQueen in line. 

Jillian is the only child of another run's Alpha. She's sent on a mission by her father to aid the Cornerstone run as well as search out a new mate. Being widowed and deeply grieving for her tragic losses, Jillian knows her missionary trip has its ulterior motives by her father. When her beast does recognize a worthy male, its one she so cannot have. 

The ending is a real emotional roller coaster ride. You will go to anxiety to fear to happiness back to fear within just a few short pages. As much as I loved Black Rook, Gray Bishop has enthralled me even more with this series. Meade has definitely setup a firework riddled ending to this trilogy in the final book, White Knight, being released in Jan 2015.
