"Debut author Vale has created a paranormal community in the modern world, and it's a standout...a dense, gooey chocolate cake in page form. A wonderfully descriptive paranormal romance that breathes some much-needed life into the subgenre." - Kirkus
"As Vale begins her The Legends of All Wolves series, her outstanding world building makes this sensuous tale of life and love in the Pack, a werewolf society, well worth reading. Spellbound readers will watch for the next installment, A Wolf Apart." - Booklist, STARRED review
" Vale has created a world unlike any other that is full of mythical creatures and unlike any other stories I have read. I highly recommend THE LAST WOLF to anyone who loves a good paranormal romance that really stands out long after you read the last page." - Fresh Fiction
"The dark, rich world of Vale's debut novel is instantly engaging, and will hold plenty of draw for fantasy and sci-fi readers, as well as readers of paranormal romance. Her wolf shifters have history and depth, and the individual members are all well crafted and compelling in their own right...the rich characters and their powerful connections still make this book a fascinating one that offers a good deal of promise for future books in this world." - RT Book Reviews
"Cleverly conceived and thoughtful story...The unique, believable world-building, flashes of humor, and Old Norse references make this exceptional debut of a promising series a solid choice for all paranormal readers and collections. " - Library Journal

I won't say that I have totally given up on the series, because I think there is something there, the author just has to pull it out. The story is intriguing but the voice simply falls flat. So when the next one comes out I'll be in line to buy it but I will go in with a bit of trepidation and maybe more than a little hope!
There are also plenty of scenes where there is delightful prose.
"As a wolf, the world is filled with cues: the dry crack of a branch under the weight of snow, the smell of fungi, a quiet rustle of a nest that once housed a sapsucker and now a squirrel in a tree that is dead and not just for the winter.
As a human, the world is filled with commands: YIELD, DO NOT PASS, WATCH FOR CHILDREN, KEEP CANADA CLEAN, IT'S CHOCOLATE TIME AT TIM HORTONS."
I can hardly wait for book two, coming August 2018.
Silver Nilsdottir is a member of the Great North Pack, one of the first packs that came to the New World, and one of the oldest. In a hierarchy of only the fit survive though, Silver is ranked at the bottom because of a crippling birth defect. Despite her obvious loyalty and commitment to her pack. When she is finally faced with the decision of becoming a modern-day slave to the beta couple of the pack, or align herself with an injured stranger, she chooses the stranger. Regardless of the consequences and possible expulsion from the pack. Tiberius Leveraux is a conundrum to Silver, a wolf shifter who refuses to hear the call of the wild. But Tiberius has many secrets, and one not only puts Silver at risk, but her entire pack...
At the beginning of The Last Wolf, readers are transported back in time where the alpha of the Great North Pack is scrambling to survive the human's encroachment on their territory, and the shifters that have banded together with them in order to kill the werewolves. Traveling to the unknown lands of America with the last of their pack is their only hope but hundreds of years later, the Great North Pack finds themselves facing the same obstacles....The backstory of the pack was stagnant and the transition between the past and present was rough. It took me time to realize that I was now reading about two different characters. Honestly, I should have D.N.F.'d this book right away. Nonetheless, I kept hoping that if I read a little further, the point of the story would take shape, but unfortunately that never came to be.
While the author creates a unique paranormal world, the explanations for this realm were oft times bewildering. The narrative was overly descriptive, and flat with sporadic pacing. The world built around the lackluster characters was monochromatic. While Silver was a loyal, sweet character I couldn't connect with her in any way. The story itself got downright grotesque at times, and lacked any passion whatsoever. The entire pack mentality was bizarre to be honest. Bottom line, the author's writing style just did not work for me in the least and I don't see myself reading any more of her works in the future. I will say though, that if you enjoy more of a beast-like story, The Last Wolf might be for you. However, for me, it lacked the range of human emotions that all good romances are established with.
*I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

Silver Nilsdottir is the runt of the pack, she’s smaller than all the other wolves and has a bad leg, this puts her right at the bottom of the pecking order.Read more
