In a Nutshell: I’ve waited for Wulfe’s story and it was good but not the great that I was looking for. Still, the series’ plot was well progressed and I’ll still look forward to the next installment.
The Set Up: Wulfe is the loneliest of the Feral Warriors since his mate died in a Mage attack. Though Wulfe didn’t love his wife, their bond left him unable to feel or long for another. But this changes when Wulfe meets Natalie, a human caught in the middle of the fight between the Mage and the Ferals. Natalie isn’t sure about this new supernatural world she’s thrust into but she’s willing to fight alongside Wulfe if only he could learn to love her like she does him.
Why I Read this Book: I’ve been awaiting Wulfe’s story for seven books and I finally get it here.
What I Liked: Wulfe’s character is the same in this book as in the previous books and that was huge for me. He was the mysterious Feral Warrior whose mate was the previous Radiant, the woman who uses Earth magic to keep the Feral shapeshifters healthy. Wulfe was deeply injured by his mate’s death and his inability to connect with others or enjoy life made him the classic tortured hero that I love in my romance novels. Here he’s the same and his problem isn’t immediately fixed by Natalie. Sure, when it is it’s just pure romance novel but that worked since I was ready for Wulfe to finally be able to want Natalie and get his satisfaction. He’s such a great character that I’ve rooted for him and his HEA for seven books and I was glad he got it here.
What I Also Liked: I loved the direction of the series’ plot. I’m not going to summarize the plot to date as it’d ruin the previous seven books but I will say that this book provides big resolution in the Ferals’ fight against the demons controlled by evil Mage. I like how the author set up the series for future books. This will keep my interest for the series and that’s saying something after eight books!
What I Didn’t Like: Natalie is just a decent heroine. She’s nothing remarkable but she does look past Wulfe’s physical scars to learn who he really is. Their romance isn’t super intense but it’s got a decent amount of tension as human Natalie accepts Wulfe and the supernatural world he’s a protector of.
IMO: Though I didn’t adore the romance, the storytelling was good and the character I loved got his HEA I wanted.
