About The Last Wolf
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…
Review of The Last Wolf
The Last Wolf book is the best wolf book I have ever read. I can’t even use the term ‘werewolf’ because the author does not use that term except in reference to movie portrayals of werewolves.
The members are the Great North Pack are either wild or they are in their skin. Silver prefers to be wild, but wears skin when needed. At the beginning of her story, she is a nilding – an unpaired wolf obligated to serve her echelon’s alpha. A most undesirable position. Her chance to change her lot appears when a stranger shows up, wounded and begging for sanctuary.
Taking a chance on Tiberious puts the runt Silver on the path to becoming the wolf she could be. Not because of Tiberious, but in spite of him. What follows is a fascinating look into the life, customs and philosophy of the wolf pack. Through Silver’s eyes, the reader is treated to the wildness of the great northern outdoors that she loves so well. Through Silver’s eyes, the pack relationships are detailed and brought to heartbreaking and heartwarming life. And through Silver’s eyes, the stranger becomes a integral part of a pack even though he is not one of them and is not even trusted.
The climax of the book will bring all of these elements together in a very satisfying conclusion. Though this is the first book of a series, the story is complete on it’s own. I am very please to have found this book and I will look forward to the next in the series.
Through Netgalley, the publisher provided a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
