The Trailer Park Bears are here again, with the fourth in the Gray Back Bears Series.
The Gray Backs, and all the others of the Trailer Park Bears group of multiple series, truly do live in trailer parks. Broken-down singlewides, parked in the middle of the forest, where Dragon Shifter Damon Daye has brought them in to clear trees devastated by bug infestations. The TPB’s series is actually more than one series. The first tells the story of the Saw Back Bears, this second series is all about the Gray Backs. While the Ashe crew, the stars of the Saw Bears series, is the “A Team” of lumberjacks, well, the Gray Back crew is, as Alpha Creed puts it, “The C Team”. Rowdy, constantly battling, and constantly covered in blood, the Gray Backs are a misfit band of dominant bears. Broken dominant bears. Creed the alpha, Matt the man-ho, Clinton and Jason the goofballs. And then there is Easton, a bear so broken he can’t stand to live close to the others – and can’t seem to stop fighting, even when it might mean his death. A broken clan with a brutal and savage history, they are the clan that nobody wants to mess with.
Book one was Matt’s story. Book two took us deeper into Creed’s story. Gray Back #3, Gray Back Ghost Bear, was Jason and Georgia. Now, we finally get to Easton’s story, the one I have been waiting for. Easton’s life was a horror show of infinite proportions, and it has left him fighting every second for some form of sanity. The Gray Back crew is his last chance. If Creed can’t keep him under control, he will have to be put down. And that knife’s edge is cutting closer.
Then, a ghost from his past reappears, and the thin line of his sanity, which has left him with the name ‘Beaston’ among the crew, wobbles dangerously. For there is a Raven in their midst – a Raven Beaston is certain he only dreamed. Aviana – the raven who once visited him in the darkness and terror of his childhood. Can they renew that bond and save both their souls?
Book four is the one I was waiting for, and it didn’t disappoint. A wonderful story, full of hope and forgiveness.
