Series: Silver Wolf Clan #1
Published by: Kensington
Genres: Paranormal Romance
What happens when monsters turn out to be real? One summer night while camping in the woods, Morgan Carter finds out in a big way. A tall mysterious stranger, Greyson Crawford, risks his life to try and save her sister from the vicious wolf attacking their camp. When he’s bitten and disappears into the night, Morgan can only assume the worst. Greyson shows up a year later, and he’s a different animal altogether. His eye color shifts constantly and the rumble in his throat sounds more animal than human. She hasn’t any idea where he’s been all this time, but a good guess as to what he’s become. Grey is determined not to let the darkness of his new existence affect Morgan and the little girl in her care. He hasn’t been able to stop thinking about Morgan but knows he should stay away and let her live a normal life. That’s easier said than done, though. A new danger pulls him from the shadows to keep her safe, and he’s no wolf in sheep’s clothing. Can she accept what lurks just below his surface? More importantly, can she survive him?
Lorna @ Rabid Reads turned me on to the Silver Wolf Clan series by Tera Shanley and when I saw that Silver Wolf Clan was free on Amazon I jumped at the chance to read them and snagged book two Black Wolf’s Revenge from NetGalley. Both reviews posted today so be sure and check out my thoughts on Black Wolf’s Revenge.
I have been on a bit of an Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Romance kick and Silver Wolf Clan fed my need. It introduced some new to me concepts with wolf packs and I am anxious to see how it develops. It also reminded me of Alpha & Omega and the Mercy Thompson series.
At a mere hundred and eighty-seven pages Shanley managed to create the world, introduce us to a clan, give us history and share a sweet romance with strong characters. I consumed this in a single sitting, and found the concept and characters intriguing.
While camping in the woods Morgan Carter’s life changes when a mysterious stranger, Greyson Crawford, steps in and tries to save her sister from a vicious animal attack. He was badly wounded and in the confusion, he ran off. Morgan was unable to find him. A year has passed and Greyson has struggled with the outcome of that fateful encounter. Alone and confused he lives on the outskirts of town, struggling to control the beast that walks within him. Thankfully, help arrives and soon he begins to come to terms and learns to handle the beast. Greyson reminded me of an alpha version of Sam (Mercy Thompson series) and he made me swoon.
While the romance developed fast and became complicated by secondary characters, it had a slow burn feel. Had this been a full-length novel I would have demanded more, but Shanley left we satisfied and feeling warm and fuzzy. The series itself deals with Morgan and Grey, much like the Alpha & Omega series by Patricia Briggs focuses on Anna & Charles.
Morgan is special and this aspect of the story was fascinating. It had me diving right into Black Wolf’s Revenge. This puts her and Lana directly in danger and I am anxious to see how the series develops. Unique alliances, implied danger and this couple have me eager for more.
