This is the fourth book of the series and I hope that there will be many many more to come. In the last book we witnessed the transformation of Ronan's sister Chelle. Not knowing exactly what she is or what she is capable of, she has been an enigma. Chelle also wants the answers to these questions. In fact, she is desperate to shed light to what she has become and there seems to be only one place that she can find answers at. The Ancient Library of Alexandria. However, she needs a key and that key has been broken into three pieces. Chelle has always loved chasing treasures. The more difficult they are to obtain, the better. She had entrusted one of the pieces to Siobhan, the leader of her former coven. The second piece is held by the Alpha of the Forkbeard pack and the third is held by the Sorceri. After retrieving the first piece, Chelle finds herself at the stronghold of the Forkbeard Pack. She is unable to steal the key, but she doesn't come home empty handed. She has found her mate and it is none other than the Alpha of the pack, Gunner Falk.
Gunner Falk is a werewolf. He is a viking and looks the part. With his hulking figure, long blonde hair, beard and intimidating tattoos, he is everything that an adventure seeking, danger loving daredevil like Chelle loves. And when they both realize that they are destined to be together, then all bets are off. They never expected this and both Gunner and Chelle know all the difficulties that they will have to face, but try as they might they just can't seem to deny the pull that their tether has on them.
Another hot and exciting addition to the series. Gunner is the perfect opposite to the daring and sometimes very immature Chelle. The chemistry is sizzling and intense. Fortunately there seems to be a couple more books in the future. I have been waiting anxiously for Siobhan's story. However the next book seems to be about Saeed and the mysterious red haired fae that he has been having visions of. It promises to be an exciting and hot read! Can't wait!!
Thank you Netgalley and St. Martin's Press for providing this ARC in exchange for an honest review.
We don't get a lot of answers like I was hoping, but being able to read her pov in this book has made her less scary. She's just as afraid of what she is and what she can do as everyone else, which makes her driven to find the answers, no matter the costs.
This is where she meets Gunner, the Alpha of the Forkbeard pack. She is searching for the 3 pieces to a key and Gunner's pack has one of the keys. Chelle breaks into the packs home to steal the key and gets caught by Gunner and has her heart tethered by him. A tethered heart is the Vampires way of knowing when they meet their soulmate.
This is when things really start to spice up. Gunner's pack is very old, leading back to the vikings era, and stuck in old traditions. It's taboo to be mated outside of the species and Gunner has to hide the fact that Chelle is his mate until he can figure out how to get his pack to accept their mating. In the mean time, Chelle keeps putting herself in danger trying to steal the keys.
I'm loving this series. We have Alpha Hero's, smart and powerful heroines and an exciting plot that is building with each book in the series. Each book focuses on one couple but you see all players in each book. I would recommend starting with book 1. ARC provided by Netgalley.
Those of you familiar with this series will remember Chelle from her twin brother Ronan’s book, The Warrior Vampire, where we learn she was not turned into a vampire by normal means, but by some ancient magic.
In The Untamed Vampire, we see Chelle struggling to come to term with her “differences” from the other vampires. She has powers that Mikhail, King of the Vampires, and former Last True Vampire know nothing about. She fears if these differences become known she’ll be killed or at the very least ostracized from her people.
Chelle believes she knows where she can find the answers to her questions, but to do so will require her to have three ancient keys, one of which she already has, the other two were entrusted to the care of enemies centuries ago. But Chelle is nothing if not a dedicated treasure hunter and her first stop takes her to the door of the ancient werewolf pack the Forkbeards.
Gunnar, the alpha of the Forkbeard pack, is prepared for anything when he learns a thief has broken into their stronghold. Anything, that is, except for Chelle. When he sees her, his wolf knows that she’s his mate. Simultaneously, Chelle’s tether activates and her soul is returned. While Gunnar and Chelle’s inner beings know that they’re meant to be together, tradition and pack law dictates that their union is forbidden. They’ll have to weigh the risks if they want to be together, for their mating isn’t the only thing causing trouble in the supernatural world.
I was happy that Chelle got her own story. Not only the first female vampire to take centerstage, but I absolutely loved that Kate Baxter decided to go a more traditional route with Chelle’s story and pair her with a werewolf. It’s been quite some time since I’ve read a vampire/werewolf story, and I loved that, for the most part, Kate Baxter doesn’t play with the mythos surrounding these two traditional supernatural creatures.
By letting our knowledge of vampires and werewolves suffice, the relationship building between Chelle and Gunnar could take more focus, which allowed their interactions to be full of quite the heat and tension at times. These two know that they’re supposed to be together. Chelle’s torn because her first goal is to figure out if her differences make her a threat to vampire kind, and she doesn’t want anything to sidetrack that goal. For his part, Gunnar is 100% dedicated to his pack, he’s alpha, top dog (pardon the pun), he struggles with adhering to tradition yet he can’t ignore what his wolf is telling him.
Kate Baxter masterfully sets up things for the next book in the series, The Lost Vampire, just enough to whet my appetite but never taking anything away from Chelle and Gunnar. Also, she furthers the storyline regarding the rising tensions between the Vampires, Berserkers, and the Sortiari. Sides will be chosen and battle lines will be drawn.
The Untamed Vampire, for me, is the strongest in the series thus far. Relying on more traditional mythology really leant itself well to the overall storyline and helped not to overwhelm the story threads that skew a little from what we’re used to. If I still haven’t convinced you about this book I’ll leave you with this: Ancient Viking Warrior Werewolf Pack. Done.
