Fans of shapeshifter stories get a double dose of fun with the intersecting story threads of the werewolf clan and the skinwalker clan. Seeing both parties work their magic and charm is a powerful page-turning motivator as you can imagine with a story of this type. But the factor I found most compelling was the author’s highly unique take on the genre. She reverses the A and B stories, putting the relationships between the clan members and the brothers, sister, and wives around who this story revolves front and center throughout, and relegates the blood, gore, battles, and vengeance part to the background stage. While that might seem a counterintuitive choice, especially for male readers who tend to live for that stuff, I was never more engrossed in a paranormal fantasy involving shapeshifters as I was in this one. These are werewolves we’re talking about, after all; they share a psychic connection, a sense of brotherhood and family that so transcends what most of us enjoy in the real world that it’s like coming home, only better; it’s returning to a home we never had and only wish we had. And this despite the fact that danger forever lurks around the corner, and the characters live the harshest of lives. When the big conflicts come, they’re epic, and we see the value of letting the suspense build rather than rushing to the next blood and gore session programmatically, and in a way that might have offered cheap genre-expected thrills, but would have meant forgetting the read as rapidly as we put the book down when it blended with every other tale just like it.
Tore and Annike are destined to be together. They are both wolf shifters living in a commune where Tore's father is the leader. His word is the final word. In the commune, woman do not have much contact with anyone outside the commune and the men are allowed to be educated with humans and learn about human society.
Just when they think their mating is to be, their world is ripped apart by Tore's jealous brother Erik who wants Annike for his own. Tore and Annike have to flee everything they know if they want to be together.
I don't like to ruin a story so what I will say is that there is a great deal of love and loss in this book. I was very strongly moved by the characters and very much enjoyed the story. There is a Native American element to the story as well that I found fascinating. I look forward to reading the other parts.
I was provided a free copy by the author in return for a honest review.
A mix of werewolf and native American characters, this is a rather unique way to view the paranormal. The story opens with a werewolf (Tore) who has transitioned into his adult wolf and goes to ask his father (the alpha) for his blessing to mate Annike, also a werewolf. His father tells him no, he is allowing Erik, his oldest brother, to mate Annike. Tore is devastated and attacks Erik, but is stopped by the others. His father tells him he will accept his decision or leave. Tore decides to leave but goes to let Annike know. She tells him he is her mate and she will go with him. The next morning early they are leaving when Annike's friend Nea comes running and insists on going with them. Nea is to mate Felix in a few days so Annike & Tore don't understand why she would want to leave. She tells them she is pregnant and it isn't Felix's cub (and that's a whole other story). They can't dissuade her so the 3 of them set out, moving as swiftly as possible. Tore comes up with a plan to throw off his brother and the trackers and they are successful until Annike and Nea are ready to deliver. He knows he has to find a safe place for them to live. The story continues on through their lives, the trials they face, the joy of having more children until Nea can no longer hide her unhappiness. She misses Felix and wants to go back to him. And so the adventure begins again. This is an excellent story, very well developed but quite interesting. It was hard to put down. At the end Tore is listening to Hania's proverb..."Inside me, there is a fight raging between two wolves. One wolf is anger, bitterness, self-pity, jealousy and sorrow. The other wolf is love, faith, hope, peace, forgiveness, and joy. Both wolves are strong, and they battle fiercely. Inside each of us this battle is so, even in you...which wolf will win? The wise elder replied, The one you feed. The only thing I didn't care for was the ending felt a little abrupt.
