Romance | Fantasy | Paranormal
I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This book was released on March 26, 2019.
I did not realize this book was part of a series when I started reading it. My only complaint about this book was that it seemed like I was missing some of the characters’ back story but it turns out that is my fault because there were two books that took place before this one.
You don’t HAVE to read the other two books, because I ended up loving this one all on its own. I imagine, though, that the other two book are awesome, too.
- The Last Wolf – The story of Silver (wolf runt) and Tiberius (shifter)
- A Wolf Apart – The story of Thea (human police) and Elijah (wolf & lawyer)
- Forever Wolf – 5/5
What is it about?
Varya is an arctic wolf and the sole survivor of her pack. She has resettled in the Great North pack and does everything she can to make sure this wolf pack does not fall to the same fate.
Then she meets a wolf with eyes the color of the sky and colors of the earth. In stories of old this portends either the end of the wolves or the beginning, depending on how you tell it. He is a threat; and yet he smells like home.
Was it good?
Yes!! I loved it. I was a little confused because it jumps right into the pack life and hints at stories that happened earlier. I should have realized at that point that there were books I was missing but, I was already too invested to stop reading.
The portrayal of the every day lives of these wolves as they fight to survive against not only the humans on their borders but other more powerful forces that threaten to tear the pack apart, is just breathtaking. I loved the way the history and hierarchy all fit together into a society that feels possible.
I don’t normally read romance and I didn’t realize that this was romance novel at first. I was just excited about the wolves.
The romance was really great. The relationship grew in a natural way and the physical expression was *ahem* interesting, but didn’t overshadow the actual story. That’s just the way I like it!
I highly recommend this book for anyone interested in werewolves, or shifters.
