Striker Gryphon has lost his position of honor among the Ram, and is now a hunted man. A traitor.
Zo, the object of his affection, was murdered by members of his former clan. To honor her memory, he journeys to the highly secretive Raven “Nest” to warn strangers of their impending demise—though it could cost him more than just his pride.
He doesn’t know that Zo is very much alive and in another part of the region assisting Nameless refugees over a mountain swarming with wild men known as “Clanless.”
As each struggle to make sense of what their lives have become, they fight and claw to reach the Allied Camp, their last hope in bringing peace to the region.
But the road back to one another is treacherous and uncertain. And freedom will come with a price.
Zo last saw Gryphon before he gave himself up to the Ram to protect their little family. Unsure what his fate is has left her to take charge of being the caretaker while also worrying about him. One thing is for sure, no matter what they live their life for the other.
Nameless ended and I wasn't sure what to do with myself. I needed more Gryphon and Zo. Finishing Clanless was the exact same. It has left a hole in me, if not bigger than it was before. Gryphon and Zo need to start openly talking to one another - that's my biggest thing. Leaving one another in the dark doesn't end up getting them anywhere good! And it leaves readers on the edge of their seats!
I went into Clanless thinking - for some reason - that this was the end of this series. That it was a two book series and that I would get closure....so when the end approached let's just say I was horribly shocked. But then realized that meant more books were to come. Which then made me such a happy reader! While the wait will be torturous, it will be worth it.
In Clanless we see Gryphon and Zo grow as characters. Into beings that are strong and capable of things they weren't aware they were capable of. Jenkins yet again transports us into this wilderness where we want to decide if we are a Wolf, or a Ram. Where we hope we're not Clanless, but now being Nameless has a sense of pride and hope accompanied with it.
The action adventure that goes on within this book is enough to make you wish you were fighting alongside Gryphon, Gabe, and Zo. The relationships that get bonded make you wish you were on the receiving end of the love that gets shared. Yet, Jenkins makes you feel as though you are. She lets you in, and secretly makes the characters love you as you love them.
