Review ~ Silver Wolf Clan by Tera Shanley with a giveaway



BLURB:

What happens when monsters turn out to be real? One summer night while camping in the woods, Morgan Carter finds out in a big way. A tall mysterious stranger, Greyson Crawford, risks his life to try and save her sister from the vicious wolf attacking their camp. When he’s bitten and disappears into the night, Morgan can only assume the worst.

Greyson shows up a year later, and he’s a different animal altogether. His eye color shifts constantly and the rumble in his throat sounds more animal than human. She hasn’t any idea where he’s been all this time, but a good guess as to what he’s become.

Grey is determined not to let the darkness of his new existence affect Morgan and the little girl in her care. He hasn’t been able to stop thinking about Morgan but knows he should stay away and let her live a normal life. That’s easier said than done, though. A new danger pulls him from the shadows to keep her safe, and he’s no wolf in sheep’s clothing.

Can she accept what lurks just below his surface? More importantly, can she survive him?

Excerpt:

Greyson’s muscles quivered under Morgan’s hand but it likely had nothing to do with the cool rain. He opened his eyes slowly and the brilliance of the golden color pooled there was almost too dazzling to look directly at. Like staring at the sun. No one would mistake those for human eyes.

If she’d had any doubt before about the brand of monster he’d become, those liquid amber eyes put them to rest. He pulled his hood back and the chin-length dark blond hair from her memory fell forward into his face. She moved a strand to the side. He’d lost weight in the past year. He hadn’t had an ounce to lose in the first place, but it looked as if he’d struggled to stay healthy. His eyebrows, just a shade darker than his hair, were furrowed but he let her drink him in. He was playing fair. For all she knew, he’d been watching her the entire year. It was her turn now.

His nose was straight and his jaw line masculine. From the brief moments she’d known him out in those woods, she’d seen how intoxicating he was. He’d been a fearless warrior bent on that murdering wolf’s destruction, no matter the cost. Here, in the dirty alley under the relentless clouds, with those glorious feral eyes and a snarl in his chest, Greyson Crawford was utterly consuming.

Softly, she said, “You’re beautiful.”

His shaky whisper tore at her. “I’m a monster.”

My Thoughts:

I liked the Silver Wolf Clan. It was a quick werewolf book.

Some aspects of the wolf were different from many of the other werewolf books that I've read. :-) This is not an easy feat so I always appreciate when an author pulls it off.

It was clear by the end that Tera Shanley is just getting warmed up with this intriguing, adrenaline spiking tale.

It was NOT a cliffhanger, so don't worry. There are some things that were mentioned such as a legend and a wolf that was no longer one of them that I don't trust. These things are just a few of the twists that will likely turn up in the next book.

I can say that one thing had me frustrated though. The main characters Morgan and Greyson seemed to always be chasing their own tail where there relationship was concerned. Both worried that the other thought this or that when in reality they were both wanting the same thing. Then when it seemed like things were in order, something else happened.

The ending was a great step toward a HEA, buuuut, it hasn't happened yet and I am so worried that it won't happen right away in the next book and something else will get in the way. I don't know if I'll be able to handle that!

I liked both characters and especially Marissa and Lana. Actually there was only one that I didn't like at all. It will be obvious which one it is if you read it for yourselves.

The only thing that would have made it better would have been for the relationship to finally be consummated. The only action that happened was kissing. If you are looking for a scorcher, this is not going to impress you. If you are looking for an entertaining, action packed, sometimes dangerous read with monsters abound and a love that spans the distance between human and wolf, then you will be blissfully happy, I am sure!

I received an ecopy of the book in exchange for my honest opinion. I liked it a lot and I will be happy to read the next book ASAP!
