This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
The Italian Alpha, Salvatore Esposito, crossed an ocean and dared to venture into unfriendly territory to hunt for his missing sister in Willow Bend.. He'll do anything to get her back, even if it means he must resist chasing the fierce enforcer who wakens his primal beast...anything.
As an enforcer, Margo Montgomery monitors the lone wolves. She is in the middle of investigating missing wolves from multiple territories when the order comes in to escort the Salvatore to Willow Bend. There's bad blood between her and the current Alpha of Willow Bend, but they soon discover a new danger--a lone wolf gone rogue.
Now Margo must hunt the rogue--a pursuit made all the more dangerous because it becomes readily apparent the rogue they seek isn't alone and Salvatore refuses to be left behind--not when wolves are vanishing without a trace...
I was given this book to read and review. This is the first book of the Wolves of Willow Bend Series I have read. Rogue Wolf Book4 by Heather Long is a author that is talented and this is the kind of story that I really enjoy reading and this is a great read.
I like the start of the story Heather gives of all the characters before you start to read the story. This is the four book in the series but each book can be read as a standalone novel. There are three books in the series I have not read but after reading book four my curiosity to read other books in the series is one I know I am going to satisfy.
In the beginng there are wolves missing from the packs, this brings in the Alpha Salvatore from another country. There is some tension between Salvatore and Margo. Unfortunately for Margo nothing is going right for her for now she's being ask to help find Salvatore sister. The family is having some drama. Salvatore and Margo are having to ignore the attraction between the two of them and it's getting harder. While they are trailing the wolves that has his sister, they must figure out what is going on? When they are attacked and have to fight. They caught up with the wolves and Salvatore sister but they aren't prepared for what they find.
The storyline leaves you on the edge of your seat. But it makes you want to read the next book and leaves you hoping that next book in the series is available. Now if you are like me you can read the past issues while you wait or if the next book is available you will want to read two at a time to get caught up with the Author.
This Is A Great Read
One of my new favorite Alpha pairs! Mercy and Adam better watch out!
Half-Resurrection Blues by Daniel José Older is the first book in his Bone Street Rumba series. This Urban Fantasy was full of grit and soul and an absolute pleasure to listen to!
I snatched up this offer on a whim after looking at the other audiobook options. An author I have never heard of, that is narrating his own book? Intrigue won the internal debate, but I am going to admit that I was skeptical and a bit pre-judgmental that it was going to be a flop. I mean, Mr. Older DID HIS OWN NARRATION. This is something that doesn’t happen very often, and I was even skeptical of Neil Gaimen narrating his own work and he is Neil freaking Gaimen. Are you feelin’ me here? I was skept-i-cal, but that skepticism swiftly turned into awe. You, Mr. Older are an artist. The world you created was full of beautifully diverse characters, colorful language, and spoken with the tongue of a poet. Well done, my good Sir!
With an air of mystery and mayhem on every page, I was transfixed into this gritty and original world. I always felt like the author had one up on me in the story and repeated thwarted my ability to guess what was going to happen next!
Diversity is something I have brought up before in reviews and although I don’t expect every single book to have a full color wheel incorporated into the story, I do think in most urban cities, and in most stories, it is absolutely necessary and keeps falling through the cracks. I am just confused about where these towns are that have 100% white people. I mean…I am white, but even my own family is a full spectrum. How can entire cities be full of whites in many of the urban fantasy and fantasy titles? How would they ever stock enough sunscreen? Shut up. That was funny.
Narration: Narrated by Daniel José Older the narration starts off a little choppy and Oldner seems a more confident. Part way into the book, about the first major bump in the road something happens and Oldner finds his inner center. The narration begins to flow like silk with passion shining through and remains steady through the end of the book. Older makes me think of a poet on the stage of a coffee house, sharing his inner demons and passion for us all to see. I loved it!
I rate Half-Resurrection Blues 4.5 out of 5 Bullets!
