I have to. I’ve been fighting it all night. I’m going to lose. My battle is as futile as a woman feeling the first pangs of labor and deciding it’s an inconvenient time to give birth. Nature wins out. It always does.
This book, the first in the “Women of the Otherworld” series, takes a new angle on the werewolf underworld. Elena Michaels is a journalist and the only female werewolf in the entire world. She struggles and fights her inner demons and she wants to be normal at all cost. However the wolf in her and her love for her maker brings her back to what she has left behind and what she has tried to forget. The author describes the emotions so vividly that you feel their joy and pain, you sympathize with the characters. But the book also has a bit of humor. It was refreshing to see a woman as the lead. I was fascinated by how the author was able to maintain an entire pack of male werewolves yet Elena was powerful enough to be respected by other members of her pack. The plot had some gaps that had to be filled in as I continued reading. And there is still some of the history about her makers left to be answered later in the series. This book leaves you wanting more. I can’t wait to see what happens next.
