interesting take on the werewolf mythology
It was great to read a book that was different from the rest of the genre. A werewolf that doesn't actually turn into a wolf- clever, well written. I hope there's a sequel eventually. ~ Terry B, Amazon

Quality writing and a great story
An interesting take on the werewolf legend, it gives the reader plenty of opportunities to re-think the scores of paranormal romances out there, and lends a new voice to the “pack” . . . There are stories that you finish, and, well, that's it. It was good and then it was over. Then there are the stories and the characters that stay with you. Happily, I can include Leaving the Pack in this second category. It is a good thing this is so. . . there are two more stories in the trilogy. . . a good thing I want some more! ~ Kate, Amazon

Fascinated by the out of the ordinary! Well Put together!
This book was entirely new to me in terms of genre , typically do not go for fantasy books seeing as how many of them took off in pop culture . But this novel was far more different than the ones that are like it such as "Twillight" . The plot of the story kept my attention for the most part I read the novel in my leisure time but became more captivated by the creativity of the author. As a college student this really took me away from my regular readings and put in somewhat of an escape when I took time out to read this book. I would definitely recommend this piece to anyone who has not familiarized themselves with such fantasy novels. With the expansion of these types of writings it has the potential to take off and possibly be part of the mainstream culture as long as it is kept original. In my personal opinion this is "On the edge of your seat" type reading. ~ Fritz Paillant, Amazon

Different but good
I worried that this book might be too much fantasy for my tastes, but I absolutely enjoyed every page. Once I became connected to Paul's character (about midway through Chapt 1), I was hooked and couldn't put it down. I was rooting for the characters till the end and I felt very connected and invested in them.
Yes, it's about werewolves. But it's not. It's a realistic and artfully told story about people and relationships. The werewolf thing? It really just serves to up the intrigue and sexiness. And yes, it's a good bit sexy. ~ Kaitlyn E. Wante, Amazon

Excellent read, I'd highly recommend this book.
I found this book extremely enjoyable. The characters were very realistic, you really become immersed in their world.
The plot was exciting and fast paced, I was turning the pages to find out what happened next. I am really looking forward to the next chapter of this action packed trilogy. ~ Sheila, Goodreads

This is the best and most believeable werewolf novel
This is the best and most believeable werewolf novel this reader has ever read! It makes sense that some people can be more affected by the full moon than others. The characters were wonderful and the reader will enjoy getting to meet the entire pack, as well as Susan's best friend Jenny. The pack is very clever at getting one another out of trouble when something really bad happens to a pack member. This novel has some very high points as well as some very low points, but they all make it an excellent read! This reader would recommend anyone, even those not into paranormal, to read this novel, it is so well and cleverly written. ~ Belinda Wilson, Amazon

This story is a little different than most shifter books I have read. They way O'Brien writes this story and the characters makes it believable. He gives just enough detail to keep you interested and wanting more. This is the perfect start to a trilogy. I look forward to reading more. If you've not read this, you should! ~ minde1397, Amazon

Leaving the Pack will appeal to a variety of readers. As a horror romance with urban-gothic undertones, David hits it on the first strike with a gritty thriller running right along side an emotional romance. This story is more than romantic suspense, more than horror with a minor love interest, more than a contemporary paranormal. It's all those things, and then some. David uses his poetic voice to pull readers into the story quickly through instant imagery which continues throughout the story. His characters are very well developed, leaving you wondering, do werewolves really walk among us? And that's the point of a really good story . . . to make you wonder, even as you close the book, right? Leaving the Pack is a fabulous start of the Silver Nights Trilogy. I can't wait to see what he has in store for us in book two. ~ Heart of Fiction
What a great book, well written and had you captivated by the characters from the first few pages , loved the story and didn't want it to end .cant wait for the next one. ~ Karen McGregor, Amazon
This fast-paced novel is utterly compelling from the first sentence. Well written; the science grounds this book about werewolves firmly in reality. ~ Sinead Burt, Goodreads
This is the story of a huge romance that must unfold with the reality of horror diluted by the truth. David O’Brien paces the conflict perfectly and it all reads like a light-hearted, passionate romance tinged with some darkness. It seems like a wonderful beginning to this horror-romance trilogy and it has just the right amount of passion and intrigue to keep the reader avidly flipping the pages! Nicely done, David O’Brien – looking forward to the next novel! ~ Viviane Crystal, Goodreads
Amazing story great characters. It catches your attention from the very beginning. Nothing to do with others novel about werewolves. This one is much better. It is a must. ~ Angela, Goodreads
