Posted February 24, 2018 by Marsha in Series / 0 Comments

For three days out of thirty, when the moon is full and her law is iron, the Great North Pack must be wild. 

If she returns to her Pack, the stranger will die. 
But if she stays…

Silver Nilsdottir is at the bottom of her Pack’s social order, with little chance for a decent mate and a better life. Until the day a stranger stumbles into their territory, wounded and beaten, and Silver decides to risk everything on Tiberius Leveraux. But Tiberius isn’t all he seems, and in the fragile balance of the Pack and wild, he may tip the destiny of all wolves…

Title:  The Last Wolf
Series:  The Legend Of All Wolves #1
Author:  Maria Vale
Genre:  Paranormal Romance
Published:  February 6, 2018
Publisher:  Sourcebooks Casablanca
My Rating:  3.5 stars

Maria Vale adds to the vast werewolf / shifter lore with her The Legend Of All Wolves series.  Each author creates their own world with its unique rules and laws.  There is some serious world building in The Last Wolf, I believe it’s necessary to understand this unique world.  At times this story read as more of an Urban Fantasy than a Paranormal Romance, and while the two genre did blend somewhat I found myself never truly in either genre… and, for me, that was an uncomfortable feeling.

The Last Wolf is less about the romance building between Silver and Ti, and far more about the Pack and the differences between their lives and the outsider’s or the rest of the world’s.  At times this story felt too crowded with people, events and yes, even graphic descriptions.  I’m not fainthearted, I simply didn’t feel some of it was necessary to get the point across.  Yet, I’m only the reader and that was my impression of parts of this story.  It’s a good story, it will have an audience that will enjoy Silver and Ti. …and I’m going to leave it at that.

This is a 3.5 star rating for me which I’ll round up for additional postings.
