Review: Claimed by the Grizzly by Lacey Thorn

Published 2016


Five years ago the bear shifters were attacked. The alpha was the first to die, but his murder was followed by carefully planned attacks focused on one thing: find and kill the female shifters.

Sidia Blackstone is running for her life. Someone has discovered the existence of the remaining female bear shifters and is determined to hunt them down. One of the elders is dead and her twin is missing. Her guardian, Nicholas, sends her to find safety among the Holloway brothers. Her best chance at survival is to find them and if her bear is willing, claim one of the last remaining grizzlies as her mate.

Koby Holloway is one furious grizzly. They’ve just discovered there are surviving female bears hidden among them. Though he swore the one who came to them belonged to him, she chose another as her mate. He doesn’t understand the pull he feels until he learns she has a twin who also survived. Now, nothing will stop him from finding her.

He’d protect her, see to all her needs, and keep her right by his side. From the moment he found her, she was claimed by the grizzly.

*NOTE: Though Claimed by the Grizzly is part of the Awakening Pride: The Holloways series it is a standalone book with an HEA and no cliffhanger. 

May be spoilers:

Please read the series in order. 

Claimed by the Grizzly is the 2nd in The Holloways series. It has 12 chapters and is about Koby and Sidia. 

Sidia is Jaeda’s sister who we met in the first. She’s one of the few female bear shifters left. 

Last story, Koby thought Jaeda was his mate, but realized it was her twin that is his mate. 

Sidia’s guardian has been killed and she’s told to run to the Holloways for some help. 

They are still trying to figure out who betrayed them and to protect the female bears. 

Loved Koby and Sidia together. Loved seeing the previous characters.

Lots of steam. 

Continuous storyline. Great world building.

Kept my attention from the start. 

Loved how well they clicked together.

No cheating, no ow/om drama, no separations.

No epilogue as it’s a continuing storyline that will continue on to the next. 

I gave it ★★★★☆. Have you read it? What did you think?
