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.
Last Alpha, bk 1....
'Last Alpha' is the first book I've read by Ruby Fielding, so I wasn't sure what to expect from her. What an intriguing mystery, I was drawn into the book, the descriptive details, the accents... all of it drew me in. I found the characters to be very detailed, some had stronger personalities than others, but you got a good indepth look at their beliefs, lives & dreams. The secrets slowly reveiled throughout this book left me always wondering what was going to happen & then disastor struck & it left me thinking the worst.... could it be this person?? But the ending, WOW what an ending, was a surprise, I had no inkling it was coming. Thank you Ruby for this mystery, filled with twists & turns all the way through.
Rogue Male, bk 2....
Upon starting this book, I was quickly thrust into the Scotish highlands & into the lives of some characters I remember from 'Last Alpha'. Set in the same small town, but meeting new characters, listening (well in my head) to that Scotish brogue.... I was drawn into the book, experiencing the akwardness of that first kiss, the wondering if a certain someone likes me... What turns out to be a weekend surprise visit to a friend, turns into a whirlwind of possible love, new friendships, learning a towns secrets, changes... I'm not going to spoil anything for you, so you'll just have to read it your self. I really loved this book!
Snow Wolf, bk 3....
I couldn't wait to start reading this book, I wanted to find out if Billy, Jenny, Iain & Skye find peace. Once again, I was quickly thrust into the Scotish highlands & into the lives of some characters I remember from 'Rogue Male' & 'Last Alpha'. Set in the same small town, we get to see how Iain & Jenny are slowly getting used to being shifters now, Billy is coaxing them in their training, Skye is still in college, but travelling to Iain whenever he has a particularly bad day. I was drawn into how their lives had changed since the pack became 3 & not just 2. I especially liked how you could read the struggle with balancing your human & your wolf. One moment your wolf wants to shift & the next, you feel like if you do...something bad may happen. Such a confusing time, when just recently there was only ever one. I really don't want to give anything of this storyline away.
I really loved what was going on in this story, & can't wait to read what comes next from Ruby Fielding.
