When a mysterious illness begins to sweep through Noctem Falls affecting the children, Eleanor Kimball is called to the city to see if she can determine what is wrong. As a pediatrician Eleanor loves children and desires many of her own, however, after several dating disasters she has not only sworn off men, but has given up her dream of a family, and the promise of a destined mate.
After discovering Grant in Noctem Falls she is faced with her own insecurities and finds it hard to believe in his love.
Grant Douglas is a man of few words and doesn’t do well surrounded by others. He is scared to death of finding a mate. He believes the harshness of his past, where he struggled to survive, didn’t cultivate a gentle heart. After a series of terrifying nightmares where his mate is at risk, Grant has decided he doesn’t want a mate at all.
When he meets Ellie, he realizes there are some things worth fighting for. Even if it means putting himself out there by becoming the Alpha he was born to be and facing the power he desperately tries to hide.
As Ellie starts to believe in Grant’s love it will take every ounce their combined strength to discover why the shifter children are suddenly falling ill before it’s too late.
Who doesn't love a lone wolf?
Although I wanted the 8th book would be about Micah, disappointment was the furthest thing from my mind as I started reading. Grant is so adorable! He is a loner and looks grumpy all the time but is a giant lovable dog. He is actually really sensitive and I fell in love with his character right away. I love Ellie and he grandma too. The storyline in the series is more about the children getting sick than it is about the ferals and the one controlling them which is ok because when you're in a city deep underground it's kind of hard to bring ferals into the equation. I was also happy that some of the other members from the Alpha Unit came to help out. I was going through Kendrick withdrawal!! This series is amazing and I can't wait for the next book!
Absolute 5 star read!
As always the magic that is an Alanea Alder book lives on. She has created such a wonderful world with characters who are as loveable as they are zany. There are so many laugh out loud moments as well as moments that bring tears to your eyes whether they be of laughter or for the characters.
This book touched me in so many ways. I can identify with many of her characters and their struggles. And as always Meryn can lighten up any heartache by reminding us of the absurdity that is involved.
