Review: Beast of Burden By A.Z. Green

Publication Date: November 28, 2014
Series: The Hidden Blood Series Book 2
Rating: 5 stars

Official Blurb:

Pack Leaders who were allies at the time of the Vikings, had rings made to remind them of who they were and what they stood for. Weremen of peace, justice and loyalty. We try to stand by that principle. 

After the attempt on Nik's life, he and Jaz leave Deer Creek to escape the dangers and judgements on both their heads. But many are determined to find them and drag them back. 

Curs are creeping out of the woodwork and making themselves known by the increase of deaths, kidnappings and rapes but it seems the Head Council are looking the other way. 

Jaz and Nik put their differences aside to begin her training in self-defence and controlling her ability to Change. Jaz allows herself to trust him again despite their rocky start, and in doing so, she soon understands the true reasons behind his past actions. 

Things aren't what they seem. 

Packs are stirring, enemies are coming out to play, humans will be caught in the crossfire, hybrid Weres must fight for their survival and sides must be picked. 

Which side are you on? 


This novel has scenes in it which readers may find offensive or traumatic. Recommended for 18+

This book again isn’t for the faint of heart, murder, rape, mutilation and gruesome fights happen amongst the weres.  I couldn’t wait to find out more about Jaz and the rest of the Deer Creek Pack. I wanted to know who was behind what happened with Jaz, the pack leader and the killing of humans. We start off with Jaz and Nik on the run, he concocted a trip to get her out of harm’s way. He knows who is behind everything, and that he is about to be overthrown.

Jaz really comes into her own, she is a quick, and a fast learner. Although, emotions are what motivate her to act, so that being said, she had yet to change into her true were form until this book. There are some traumatic events that take place, Jaz has to go through a lot of pain and lose some loved ones as well. We find out that not everything it as it seems and not everyone is on your side or your friend. EVEN family will turn their back on you at one point or another in this world. I really enjoyed this story, again it was packed (no pun intended) full of action, drama, intense scenes, as well as sweet, endearing moments. Jaz is special, and I think she is about to find out just what that means, and what she is capable of. I can’t wait to find out what happens with Jaz, and Nik next. They are leading another journey and I’m sure it’s going to be a wild ride.
