There were so many times when it would have been easy to put this book down. In the very first chapter, our werewolf hero Elijah is so dismissive of humanity in general, and of women in particular, that it is easy to hate him, especially since everything is told from his perspective. And further in, he tries and then deliberately fails, which just makes all his hubris even less attractive. But this is truly a redemption tale of how the love of a good woman (or, in this case, the love for a good woman) can turn a man around, and when environmental crusader Thea Villalobos enters the picture, the broken, pining Elijah becomes a force of, and for, nature, and thoroughly captivating with it. Second in this raw, almost aggressively-penned series – these wolves do not couch things in civil terms – it is even starker in its aspect than The Last Wolf, and also more intense, which one might not have thought possible. Definitely something different in the PNR genre, which is a feat increasingly difficult to achieve. – Rachel Hyland
