After reading each of Ellisson's V V Inn books, I would find myself wondering about a character or two. Where they came from, how they became a supernatural, and what their life was like before joining Dria and Rafe. One character in particular has always stood out from all of the rest though. Jonathan (Jon) Winchester.
It's no secret to me, or anyone else that has read this series, that Jon had many issues while in the Manitoba pack. After all, two Alpha's cannot live together without problems arising. It's just not the nature of a pack. And After yet another argument with the pack Alpha Jon just wants to pack his things, grab his girlfriend, and head out of town for good.
Heading to his bedroom to pack his things though, he finds his girlfriend having sex with a pack mate and looses his temper. Pissed off and broken hearted, Jon hops into his car and leaves for good.
Once he returns to his home state of Virginia, Jon meets Raine who he finds is like him. A Werewolf. But while he pursues her he finds that she is basically a slave and blood source for a real jerk of a Vampire, and she's not the only one. Her whole pack is in the same predicament.
Jon's Alpha instincts drive him to protect Raine and to save her. The question is, can he save himself first? And can he convince Dria to help him save Raine and her pack?
Jon is actually my favorite character in this series so I'm really glad that most, if not all, of my questions about him are now answered. I want to find out more about Rafe now C.J. :)
