After the last book was so full of pain, angst and danger, this one was a nice change up in the emotional tones and pace though it absolutely hums with foreshadowing for what is to come. It picks up nearly from the point the last one left off and these read much like a serial so the reader should definitely try to get them in order.
The story opens up with Morgan Carter, shaken from her horrid experience with the Montana wolves and what she almost did to her own mate with her fears, but now she is determined to make things right. She pushes hard for normal and for her and Grey’s shared dreams even as he cautions her that he wants the same things, but he doesn’t want her to push too fast and too hard after what she has been through.
Then the challenges to Grey’s claim on Morgan began and Morgan realizes that time to take it slow is off the table. Instead, she tells Greyson what she already has determined. She is ready for their mating and she is ready to be part of his pack with Marissa. Greyson is so happy to have his dreams come true and he proves over and over to all challengers that he is truly the Devil Wolf who can protect the last living Silver Wolf.
Unfortunately, in the midst of the happiness, there are those who would seek to destroy what they have. Alexis still wants Greyson because she sees him as the biggest, baddest, scariest alpha of them all and a challenge that she still plans on winning after she sics a dangerous threat on Morgan.
I loved the happy party atmosphere that the Dallas pack, Greyson, Morgan, Marissa and Lana are experiencing thinking that they have weathered through so much, but as before storm clouds gather and they must be ready. This felt like both a book to finally finish a story, but yet it’s also a beginning as Morgan’s existence becomes known outside the werewolf community to the dangerous others.
As before, I am so enamored with the worldbuilding that takes place in this series. It is so unique. In this case, matings, bonds, and pack brandings are the subject. Oh so fascinating stuff!
Morgan is finally coming into her own with confidence and determination. I loved seeing her matching up well as a mate for Greyson and a partner in their new little pack. Their passion was spicy as human lovers, but I loved that the author wove in moments when they were together in wolf form too (not in a sexual way).
All in all, this was a delight and I can’t wait to see what happens next. Each installment is a quick read and like I said, it’s like reading a serial. I would recommend these for Shifter romance and Urban Fantasy lovers.
My thanks to Kensington and Net Galley for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an honest review.
