Blurb (from Goodreads):
In the finale to the award-winning Talon Pack series from NYT bestselling author Carrie Ann Ryan sets, the final Brentwood must find his mate as the war with the Aspens comes to a close.

Cheyenne Liles has watched all of her friends mate into the Talon Pack and have their lives changed forever, one by one. She’s stood back, helpless to assist in the war with a rival Pack. But just when she thinks her time with the Talons is over and believes she should move on with her human life, the Aspen Pack Alpha takes matters into his own hands, altering her fate far more than a single mate mark ever could.

Max Brentwood used to be the smiling one, the only Brentwood who was somehow able to save his soul during the last Alpha’s reign. But his life was irrevocably changed one fateful day on the battlefield, and he was never the same again. Suddenly, Max is forced to face his future and make a choice when Cheyenne comes into danger: let fate decide, or watch his world crumble around him.

The shifters of this world have fought demons, humans, and themselves. Now, it’s time to find out who they truly are as the war between the Packs ends, and the moon goddess finally takes a stand.

The last installment in the Talon Pack series is here and what a great way to end things!

I am fairly new to the world of Carrie Ann Ryan's Talon Pack series, so I know this probably didn't hit me as much as it would have had I been here from the very start, but I'm still a little bit sad that the series has ended. On the other hand, the ending was just as epic as I had hoped it would be.

Forever Broken tells the story of Max and Cheyenne, and their fight against Blade, the Alpha of the Aspen Pack, and the one that has his mind set on ruling over all shifters. The book starts with a story told from the moon goddess's POV and I think this is one of the few times I've seen her so far. I truly liked the choice to have her start off the last book of the series, as it made me be even more intrigued by the importance of this book in the mythology of the world Ryan created, but it also seems like everything has come full circle.

Cheyenne is a very strong heroine. She manages to find ways to put her training as a veterinarian to good use for the Pack, even if that means just helping a little boy with a broken leg. She's using her ability to study large amounts of text books to help defeat Blade, even while she's scared because she doesn't know what her place in the pack is, what her future holds, or even if she'll survive the final battle. So despite all of that, she's willing to help Max and the pack fight back. She may be just a human, but she's just as fierce as a wolf shifter, if not more. I really liked her journey within this series.

Max was a darling. Ever since I first read about him I kept wishing for him to finally get some kind of happiness in his life. I only met him after the battle that claimed part of his soul, as well as one of his arms, so I didn't get to experience the man he was before that. I didn't get to see the happy, flirty young man everyone remembers, but the man I met was a man with no hope, and he broke my heart. Seeing him finally move on with his life, find a purpose, a mate, warmed my heart. I liked what he did for Cheyenne, for his Pack. And the ending was just perfect for him, the one he deserved and he needed.

The book is incredibly fast paced, action packed, and there never was a moment in which I felt bored. I liked seeing a little bit of the future of the Packs. I really enjoyed discovering a little bit more of the mythology of this world, while at the same time still having some mysteries left, some unknown facts open to interpretation. Or maybe they could serve as a starting point for another spin-off? And yes, this is me being hopeful.

Although I'm sad that so far this seems to be the end of this series, and this world, I can now go back to the very beginning and binge read the entire series from the very start, and get the full picture of just how amazing this world is. I truly enjoyed this book, and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that at some point in the future there will be more stories in this series.
