Wolf shifter Delana is strong—and desperate. After an unthinkable, brutal attack on her village left her pack without its Alpha, their very survival is at stake. Finding a new leader from among the strange new shifters living on their land is her pack's only hope.

Khet's inner beast eats at his soul with ruthless intensity. A wicked curse held his people captive until it was finally broken, saving his pack brothers from its terrible legacy. But Khet's dark soul was too dangerous to be saved. Shadows consume him—and also keep him far from being suitable mate material.

Yet when Delana comes to him, sacrificing her pride to ask for his help, he recognizes her as his mate. Powerless to resist her beguiling temptation, he'll do anything to protect her. Even if it means going back to the Dark Lands—alone.

The Review

This book is one of the most unique Urban Fantasy book I have read in a while!

It’s a story of Werewolves with a twist!!! Erritrol wolves come from another dimension where they have been cursed into their animal form, unable to shift into their humanoid form until the curse is broken. The curse is broken by Brienne- a woman from Avalorian who sacrifices her happiness to break it.

These wolves are bigger than the normal shifters, and they feel that they are beasts even though they are not. They are just sexy humans with super-powers. But they could be considered killers and humans can be little more than a food source.

The heroine of the story is Delana, a She Wolf Shifter with a beautiful spirit. Delana has to be strong because her pack is desperate. Their very survival is at stake after an unthinkable, brutal attack on her village that left her pack without its Alpha. So finding the new shifters pack that's been living on their land and making their Alpha theirs is her pack's only hope.

The hero is Khet, who feels that the beast inside of him is eating at his soul with ruthless intensity. But Khet feels his dark soul is too dangerous to be saved and the shadows will consume him, keeping him from being suitable mate material. But his mate will not give up on him.

This is a howling great book that I absolutely enjoyed! From the normal wolves to the erritrol wolves and the erritrol languages along with their history, their relationships and their new pack mates. This is a well written book that's paced just right. I have enjoyed reading Ms. Elianne Adams books no matter what the shifter is.

I really enjoyed Khet and Delana's love story. Khet is a damaged hero, but he is fierce and protective of Delana. They are fated mates so that means they fall in love quickly. But for fated mates that is the way things are supposed to happen. This romance is satisfying and it's impossible not to root for them to be together, despite the overwhelming odds against them. There's heat, suspense and a lot of heart.

This book never felt thin or superficial which made me enjoy it more and it's definitely a complete story. I really appreciate a solid and entertaining shifter romance. I voluntarily reviewed this book and if you are like me, you will enjoy the way Elianne Adams writes her stories. Her characters are very compelling, lovable and come together perfectly! She pulls the readers into the story, you can identify with the characters, the sensual descriptions, and all of their languages. I really enjoyed the idea of it being two different types of Wolf Shifters, the depth of her characters, the way she ended this book (and the other books I have read by her) has been completely satisfying, and I hope this is just the start of an awesome series. I know once you start reading any of her books, you won't able to stop reading until you finish the book! The books I have read by Elianne Adams makes her- in my book- a gifted and talented author that belongs on my one click list!!
