I started the series when the author provided me with a free copy of the first book. I later purchased a copy of this 3-in-1. The shifter lore in this series is different from most that I read. Shifters are rare and when in animal form, it’s like the human side almost doesn’t exist in any realm. The animal is almost completely wild and unconcerned with the human side’s needs, cares, wants, etc.

Last Alpha: Four stars
When I first got this book, it was hard for me to get into it so I put it in my try again later pile. Well, I came back to it earlier this month. The story is a different take on shifters than I'm used to seeing. Maybe that is why I had a bit of trouble getting into the story? I'm thrilled that I gave it a second attempt. It's well worth the read.
The story was written by a British author and there were a few words I had to look up such as midgies, bothy, munro, and capercallies. Also the similar, but different spellings of a few words such as guid for good and auld heed for old head. I totally enjoyed that aspect. I have to say it wasn't so much that it took me out of the story.
The main characters were:
Jenny Layne - inquisitive blogger looking to dispel shifter rumors
Billy Stewart - last shifter who is employed by Jonathan Carr
Jonathan Carr - wealthy, eccentric businessman interested in werewolves
Jim McQueen - retired cop
Minor characters were:
Dr. Lilian Lee - scientist
Dr. Winston Tsang - scientist
Aileen - housekeeper
Once I dove into the story, I thoroughly enjoyed it. The interactions between the various characters was intriguing and continued to draw me into the story. The way Jonathan would switch between creepy and eccentric when talking with Jenny. Or how Billy would be both sweet and creepy in the same conversation with Jenny.
The romance was sweet and has a slight twist.

Rogue Male: 4 Stars again
The main couple in this story is Iain and Sky, but Billy and Jenny are still part of the story. Mr. Carr, Dr. Tsang and Detective Inspector McQueen are all present as well.
I found this story more enjoyable than the first. It kept my attention and I loved that I was learning new words throughout.
Snow Wolf: 3.5 Stars
This installment is mostly centered on Jenny and finding Billy who has gone missing. Iain and Mr. Carr feature strongly in this installment as well.
While I enjoyed the final story, I admit it did drag in spots where I wanted to just slap a few folks and say “knock it off dummy.” Other than those moments the writing was sold and well-done. It was a nice well-rounded ending to the trilogy. I can say that it completed the story and left nothing hanging for me.
TL:DR: Solid 4 Stars
The shifter lore is different and combined with the uniqueness of the British writing style. I liked the overall story, but admittedly it was more tedious and thought requiring than most shifter reads. This is good and bad. It’s good because it stretched my brain, but bad when I just needed fluff to read. That is why it took me so long to read the entire thing. Definitely a worthy read.
Jenny Layne is a blogger who blogs about the paranormal. She gets invited to Craigellen Castle in Scotland to meet Mr. Carr for possible paranormal activity. She then meets a man she met in the US that may have something to do with why she was invited. There is a lab on the property that is looking into cell regeneration. Carr enjoys getting animals that are native to the land put back in their natural habitat, including wolves. Jenny keeps asking questions about werewolves but everyone is very vague about this area of study. The lead scientist is killed by what looks like a wild animal. Things get a little crazy when another scientist releases the wolves. Billy the man that Jenny met in the US who coincidentally told her he loved her and they were mated starts letting Jenny know he is a werewolf. She is starting to think he is crazy but she is already falling for him. He drives them into the woods saying he has to go save the wolves because they will be scared. She sits in the car and watches him strip all his clothes off and shift. She wonders if she is the crazy one. We learn Billy isn't the only werewolf and his and Jenny's life is in danger. This is a great mystery.
Skye has liked Ian all through college. But he is older and graduates and moves back home. They keep in contact and she decides to go for a visit. Ian is a little confused and this upsets Skye. We find out that Ian did not graduate and he feels less that adequate. He goes to work for Carr. Carr wants to know where Jenny and Billy are. Skye stumbles on Jenny when her and Ian set a trap for the wolves. Billy and Jenny both tell Skye to get Ian away from Carr. The mystery continues with more people getting turned into wolves. There is a territorial fight. There can not be two alphas in the same area. Billy wants this to be settled. Lines are drawn and people get used. Ian makes some bad choices and turns on his girlfriend and friends. Can he make this right? So many twists and turns. Just when I think I have it figured out no.
Still looking for peace is Billy, Jenny, and Ian. Billy goes for a run and asks Jenny to go. She says no and this upsets Billy. She just doesn't feel like she can shift or doesn't want to. Billy leaves and does not return in a few hours like usual. Jenny is panicked. A bad storm comes and covers the ground with snow. Ian goes looking but with all the snow he finds nothing. He can not understand why she won't shift and go find her mate. Jenny just refuses causing hurt feelings. Will they find Billy, is he hurt, did Carr have something to do with it? So many questions. This is a great ending everything is answered. Every book had me guessing including this one and this gave me all the answers. I thought I knew but no it kept me guessing. This is a great mystery book that is about friendship and love. Wow.
Received as an ARC for honest review.
