Author Name & Publisher: R. Cooper (Dreamspinner Press)
Publication Date & Length: May 8, 2015 – 380 pgs
On the run from his old-blood werewolf family, Tim Dirus finds himself in Wolf’s Paw, one of the last surviving refuges from the days when werewolves were hunted by humans and one of the last places Tim wants to be. Kept away from other wolves by his uncle, Tim knows almost nothing about his own kind except that alpha werewolves only want to control and dominate a scrawny wolf like him.
Tim isn’t in Wolf’s Paw an hour before he draws the attention of Sheriff Nathaniel Neri, the alphaest alpha in a town full of alphas. Powerful, intimidating, and the most beautiful wolf Tim has ever seen, Nathaniel makes Tim feel safe for reasons Tim doesn’t understand. For five years he’s lived on the run, in fear of his family and other wolves. Everything about Wolf’s Paw is contrary to what he thought he knew, and he is terrified. Fearing his mate will run, Sheriff Nathaniel must calm his little wolf and show him he’s more than a match for this big, bad alpha.
I have not read any of the previous books in this series.
This book was full of miscommunication, immaturity and all around bad dialogue.
It took a lot for me to get through this book – the writing style was hard to follow, because it was constantly suggesting something, without every really revealing the ending.
The main characters were immature and hard to watch – if this had been a movie, I would have turned it off.
I think that the only redeeming thing about these characters is that they learn – they adjust and they grow together.
Then, towards the ending, I could see where the previous stories would have been helpful to read – the relationship that got Tim in to trouble in the first place came back.
Overall, I think this story could have been great – but there was just too much dialogue about nothing.
I write strange but shiny things, like steampunk spies and detectives, and pirates, and cowboys, and dragons, and fairies, firebirds, and, well honestly, even my stories set in the here and now are a little broken and weird too. Because I am a messed up weirdo and that’s who I like to write about.
I fall in love with my characters when I’m writing them, so I have a lot of self-written fanfiction about them that uh…I really have no excuse for, but oh my god how cute are they?
