In a world of danger and uncertainty, the Alpha has enough to worry about without him…
For Alpha Evie Kitwanasdottir, things are never easy. The Great North Pack has just survived a deadly attack. Evie is determined to do whatever is necessary to keep her Pack safe, especially from the four Shifters who are their prisoners.
Constantine lost his parents and his humanity on the same devastating day. He has been a thoughtless killer ever since. When Constantine is moved to live under Evie’s watchful eye, he discovers that taking directions and having a purpose are not the same thing.
Each moment spent together brings new revelations to Constantine, who begins to understand the loneliness of being Alpha. He finds strength and direction in helping Evie, but there is no room for a small love in the Pack, so Constantine must work harder than ever to prove to Evie he is capable of a love big enough for the Great North Pack itself.
Review of Season of the Wolf
The Legend of All Wolves is still my favorite wolf/werewolf/shifter series. From the beginning of the series, I have admired the unique take on the wolves that can wear skin. Season of the Wolf focuses on two characters. Evie, the pack Alpha, and Constantine, a shifter that got caught up the battle between the pack and the shifters.
For series newbies, shifters are those that can shift at will, or not at all. They live mostly among humans and share no kinship with the wolves. Wolves are those that must shift with the full moon and often choose to be wolves at other times. The Great North Pack of this story lives on their own terms, wild and free, on their own land.
As Alpha, Evie does nothing for herself. It is always for the good of the pack. Even when it is time to take a mate, she must take the strongest wolf – for the good of the pack. This selflessness is a constant with this character and affects her every move. Constantine is drawn to Evie, but as a shifter who has almost never been a wolf, he will never be the strongest of the pack. But he wants Evie to be happy.
Because Constantine is an outsider, attempting to become a part of the pack, we get a glimpse into what it really means to be a part of a pack. Humanity’s selfishness and deceit that is a part of Constantine must be set aside. He will also need to sense the world like a wolf.
Humans think that what is seen is all there is. That what is spoken is all that is said. But wolves know that life happens in the crowded spaces between what is seen and what is spoken.
While I think that not all humans are that imperceptive, many animals certainly do seem to have a supernatural sense about the world around them. This is an important part of the wolf community that Evie understands and Constantine must learn. And as Constantine learns from Evie, Evie will, inevitably, learn from Constantine.
I would classify this book a romance, but is it certainly unique in it’s approach to this unusual pair of characters and how they become close.
Interwoven into the tale of of Evie and Constantine is the constant threat of the outside world. Especially the shifters. This struggle to maintain their wolf community holds the series together.
I would recommend reading this series in order so that you can get an understanding of the Great North Pack, pack dynamics and some of the great individual characters. Besides, it truly is a great series.
Through Netgalley, the publisher provided a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
