Fenrir appears in all of them as a hellhound who has spent decades with wolves and thinks of himself as a wolf, despite everyone insisting that hellhounds only happen when a HUMAN is bitten by a hellhound. His unique point of view is a constant theme in the previous novels, including the names he assigns the other firefighters' mates and baby Beth. Why is it considered strange to name people what they really are, rather than noises? Rory is a griffin, therefore, "Birdcat." Why call the shark shifter "Seren" when she's clearly "Deep Bitch?"
In this book, I don't think it's a spoiler to reveal that the ripped guy on the cover is actually the hellhound we know, Fenrir. But.
Fenrir KNOWS he has always been a wolf, never a "two-legs." He has been a "wolf" for 20 years. I love the exploration into what it must be like to suddenly be in an entirely different form. Why is panting not cooling? Why are the joints backwards? Why is fur-less skin so vulnerably sensitive? What on earth is this assault on the senses, "color vision?" Why does The Bitch seem to be insulted by this honorific name? Doesn't she understand that she is more dazzling than "many squirrels," and that he is dismayed by his obvious physical reaction to her when he has not even brought her a rabbit? I love it. And can it be cuter than when baby Beth recognizes Fenrir as "Fifi?" I don't think so!
LOTS of things are revealed in this volume: Blaise's true nature and why it's so viscerally repulsive to her, Buck's relationship to the supernatural, Fenrir's relationship with his sister, with his birth family, with the evil force Unceliga, and with the Thunderbird.
Blaise's nature has finally been named, as the final book in the series is Firefighter Phoenix. Those of us who read the original Fire & Rescue books, especially Firefighter Phoenix, already knew what she was, but not the implications. I anticipate a "wow finish" for this series!
Fenton Malvern aka Fenrir, a Hellhound shifter whom we've met since the beginning of this series. He never shifted to his human side, there was something holding him back. He had his packmates still a piece of him was missing. As we found out in the previous book, WILFIRE PEGASUS during the battle between Lupa (the baddie) and the Thunder Mountain Hotshots that he knew her and vice versa.
She was also one of his packmate, turned out she was his sister. He thought she'd died, there was so many other things from his past that he couldn't remember. Now he'd found his mate, and for the first time he'd shifted into his human form. Being on two legs was so knew to him.
His mate, Darcy aka The Bitch as he called her was stronger than she thought. When Fenrir found himself in distress, she reached out to his packmates. They were all worried about him, they got to him and shared their secrets with Darcy. It was a lot of information for the latter to take in but she handled it perfectly.
With Lupa and her gang still in the wind, the Hotspots Squad made sure to do everything to keep Fen and Darcy safe. But he made a haste decision that nearly ruined everything. Once again the Hotshots found themselves in peril, and we learned a lot more about Fen's past.
Loved the twists and turns and the unexpected surprises. Darcy, Fen and the rest oc the gang found a way to defeat Uncegila. But when they reached their destination things didn't go as planned.
WILDFIRE HELLHOUND is the fifth book in Zoe Chant's FIRE & RESCUE SHIFTERS: WILDFIRE CREW series. It was fascinating, action-packed, heart-wrenching and a fantastic read. Two thumbs up! 👍🏾👍🏾👍🏾
****I received a free copy from the author, without any obligation to review.****
These timely stories that emcompass so much more than romance. They encompass acceptance and belonging.
In addition, when the issue of babies is brought up and Darcy states she is infertile, it makes no difference to Darcy and Fenrir's story. They are a part of a community and will help raise their friends' kids and love them unconditionally but neither are interested in kids of their own. And adoption is brought up, not as something lesser or a back up plan, but as a viable option to raise kids of their own.

I also really love how the author is a) really funny and b) gets Edith's autism right. I'm very impressed at the whole 'truth telling, standing firm on one's own' thing. It's a small plot point, barely noticeable, but as an autustic woman I appreciate it.
I also like how each human woman in the series is imperfect, you know like in real life, with scars and flaws and disabilities, but better than that the author doesn't make it a big deal, it's just part of the character. Again, as a disabled woman can I say how much I appreciate this and I find it very accurate. I am both defined and not by my differences; I want them recognised and accepted but I don't want to be singled out or bullied because of them. The author has gotten this aspect of the characterisations spot on.
A wonderful series, please don't keep us waiting long for book 6!
Thank you Zoe,
Fenrir’s story was brilliant and the characters have depth and feeling to them. I love the whole series but this one in particular was worth the wait.
