Elena and Clay join the rest of the Pack in Russia, not long after the events of 13. And boy, are they in for a surprise.


The events of 13 drove the challenges and actions of all the members of the Women of the Otherworld forwards. Jeremy decides that now is the time for Elena’s ascension to Alpha, and looks forward to his retirement. The Pack is weathering the remainder of the storm in Russia and Elena and Clay struggle to deal with the revelation that Malcolm is still alive.

13 indicated the end of an era, not only for the Pack, but for Savannah, Paige and the rest of the group – the end of one adventure and the beginning of a new one. Elena becoming Pack Alpha is just another step in this journey. Kate and Logan’s responses to this are fantastic, as is the way in which Jeremy approaches the need of a ‘challenge’. Elena is forced to beat him at a mind game, rather than fighting in a physical battle. This is incredibly in tune with Jeremy’s approach to Pack leadership, and I am looking forward to investigating how Elena goes in her new leadership role.
