Summit of the Wolf by Tera ShanleyTracy’s review of Summit of the Wolf (Silver Wolf Clan #4) by Tera Shanley

An Unbreakable Bond

Morgan Carter is a claimed werewolf. Only her mate, Greyson Crawford, has the right to protect her, and to love her. But that hasn’t stopped rival packs from challenging Greyson’s claim. Morgan is the last silver wolf—the only female with the ability to produce werewolf offspring, which means there are many who would defy pack law to make her their own.

An Unstoppable Evil

When war comes to the Silver Wolf Clan on the eve of The Summit, Morgan and Greyson have no choice but to fight for their kind. With the arrival of an ancient enemy, the two realize that the war has only just begun, and to survive the greatest threat they have ever faced, they must learn to trust each other again…

In the fourth installment of the Silver Wolf Clan series I thought that Morgan and Greyson were going to catch a break and be able to lead normal (normal for shifters) lives but that’s not what happens.

(You must read novellas 1-3 in order to follow the story.)

Greyson is still fighting off challengers who want Silver Wolf (Morgan) despite the fact she’s been claimed and happily mated. When they lose one of their friends in a fight and call “the old ones” they decide that they should attend the yearly Summit that is held for their kind to interact. They don’t want to go but they want everyone to see that Morgan won’t have anyone else but Greyson and his wolf, who they call Demon Wolf.

On top of that they get a visit from an ancient vampire who warns them against a scheme that has been put in place and will supposedly wipe out Morgan and any risk of her procreating. During the Summit Morgan’s patience is put to the test and she finds out that no matter what her life is not her own.

This novella was a good one. Every time I finish a story in this series I just want more. I want a full length novel to tell me all as I’m just an impatient person. In this story we’re getting down to what’s been the issue almost from the beginning – Morgan having babies. As she is Silver Wolf and the Silver Wolf Clan was thought extinct everyone wants her so they can have full blooded wolf children. She just wants to be left alone in peace but at the Summit Alexis shows up (the bitch who tried to murder Morgan and ended up turning her) and makes a horrendous suggestion. I can’t tell you what the suggestion is as it would ruin the story for you but it was pretty horrible and sent Greyson and Morgan into a tailspin.

Summit of the Wolf came through on the excitement, love and loyalty that’s been a thread throughout the series. The story was well done and had me on the edge waiting to see what happened next. I’m looking forward to the next part of the series.

The last of her kind

As the last of the Silver Wolves, and the only female with the ability to produce werewolf offspring, Morgan Carter is a wanted woman. Male suitors from all packs vie for her, and threaten the safety of her young niece, Lana. But there is only one man Morgan wants . . .

The last of his control

Greyson Crawford has been through hell and back for Morgan. And he’d do it again. But until she learns to trust him, and lets him claim her as his own, he can’t fully protect her. When a force more powerful than either have known threatens to tear them apart, can Greyson convince Morgan to accept him as her mate once and for all, before it’s too late?

Tracy’s review of Brand of the Pack (Silver Wolf Clan #3) by Tera Shanley

In the last book Morgan was confused about what she wanted. More to the point she was confused about the reasons behind Grey’s feelings and actions. She was doubting herself and him both and that ended up badly for each of them. We start this book with Morgan getting back together with Grey but they are still on edge. She, from her ordeal of being kidnapped, and he, not quite knowing where he stands with her.

The two quickly work out that they want to be together with no issues. It’s decided that they are to marry and Grey is going to become the alpha of his own pack of 3 – Grey, Morgan and Marissa. There’s a small kink in the plan however. First Grey is having challenges for Morgan up to 2-3 a day which is wearing him out, and then there’s someone named The Dragon who is telling Grey not to claim Morgan – sent by none other than the female who Turned Morgan in the first place. She wants Grey to herself and wants Morgan out of the picture.

This was a good third installment in the series. We didn’t have a whole lot of angst or anything heavy going on in the story. It was more of, what I would think of, as a transition story. We got to see Grey and Morgan finally get together and Grey’s Wolf was happy with the claiming and becoming an alpha. Then we got a hint at what was to come in future books with the introduction of The Dragon.

While I thought this was a good story I didn’t love that not too much was going on. While it was a sweet story, there just wasn’t a lot happening. If you haven’t read the other two books then I would recommend not reading this one first. You would be completely lost and the sweetness of the story would be lost on you as you would have no clue what was happening. I’m looking forward to reading about what happens next in Morgan and Grey’s life.

He’ll risk it all to bring her home.
Morgan Carter witnessed her sister’s murder, has been turned into a werewolf and is now raising her young niece. Then her fiance, Greyson Crawford, proves he wants to be with her for the wrong reasons, and she knows her life couldn’t be any stranger. Devastated, she retreats to her cozy house in the city with her sister’s little girl, Lana. There, they’ll have normalcy, and maybe eventually, even happiness.
But Morgan’s the only living silver wolf. Her uniqueness—the ability to produce werewolf offspring—means, without Grey’s protection, she’s unknowingly put herself and Lana in deadly danger. Other werewolves want to claim her for their pack, and she’s the easiest, most tempting prey ever.
When they strike, Grey has to find her and rescue her before it’s too late. Not so simple a task; he has only the uncontrollable beast inside him, Wolf, and an unlikely pack of allies he’s forced to rely on. Can he get to her in time? And if he does, can he convince her he’s there for the right reasons, saving them both?

I’ve been on a shifter kick lately, so when I saw this on NetGalley I requested it right away.

This is the second book in the series. I didn’t read the first book and I feel like I missed a lot by having skipped it. I would recommend reading them in order.

I liked the world and the basic premise. Fated mates can be great or terrible, but I thought the concept here was interesting. They’re meant to be mates, but they have to accept each other for the claim to stick.

The execution lacked a bit of finesse. Mostly the heroine was stubborn and made bad decisions based on assumptions and emotion, rather than fact or logic. She spent the majority of the book being angry at the hero for something he didn’t do, while putting herself and her young charge in danger. While I understood her need for independence and her desire to have a mate who cared for her for her, not just because she needed to be taken care of, I thought she took things too far. Especially since she decided she was ready to move past her fears and let the mating progress, but still held her silence for days.

I liked that the hero was in love with the heroine right from the start, and he didn’t question his desire for them to be together. Though I did wonder at his quickness to pull away from her. He felt rejected, which is never an easy thing to get past, but he didn’t pursue the relationship like I expected him to since he was a) alpha and b) in love.

I also struggled a bit with the writing itself. It was choppy and I never really engaged with the author’s voice. The choppiness of the writing may have attributed to my confusion over the way both characters acted.

Enough interested me that I may try another book – either the first one in the series or the next book. I liked the premise and I have a feeling if I go back and read book one, some of the actions in this book will make more sense.
