Release Day Review: The Last Wolf by Maria Vale

LastWolf_select.jpg


Under constant threat by a human world with no room for the wild, the Great North Pack can not afford to coddle weakness. No one knows this better than Quicksilver, a runt who has spent her life fighting just to maintain her place at the bottom of the pack. 

She is on the verge of losing even that when a giant of a man stumbles into their  territory with nothing but a gun and a hole in his stomach.

And a new chance for Silver. 

But Tiberius is not who he seems and when ancient enemies appear, it is up to the last wolf to protect her pack, her land, and the man she loves.

I really enjoyed reading The Last Wolf, and this book was a great mix of Paranormal Romance and Urban Fantasy. Neither overpowered the other and the author did great job in balancing those two genres. Lately, I don't read a lot of PNR/UF books and it is really difficult for me to find a story that will keep me interested in this genre, so I was really happy that this story exceeded my expectations. The blurb gives a great short overview of what this story is about: "Silver 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." These two characters are complete opposites of each other. Silver was born crippled and a runt, and Ti is half shifter and half pack. Ti sees himself as human and hates his pack side, while Silver doesn't know anything else. These two would under normal circumstances never come across each other, or associate with one another. 

Werewolves are my favorite paranormal creatures and I love learning about pack law and their traditions/customs. I have read a lot of paranormal romance, and especially with the werewolf/shifter type of stories the author usually doesn't focus that much on the ins and outs of a pack. I loved that they didn't try to live in the human world, they have their own home and they are happy with their lives. I loved how Silver and Ti met and how their relationship developed. The author didn't rush and she also focused on their individual growth. This is the first book in The Legend of All Wolves series and I am wondering if the next book will focus on the same couple or other pack members. I personally love Silver and Ti, and I would love to see how their story will continue.
