Terry Spear further develops her world of the lupus garou
with a romantic tale that unfolds inside the dynamics of pack behavior.
Silver Town is run by a pack of gray werewolves that isn't about to welcome any outsider. Fleeing from her red pack before the leader coerces her to mate his cruel brother, Lelandi Wildhaven arrives in Silver Town to find her sister. But her sister is dead, apparently a suicide. And everyone believes Lelandi's there to make a bid for her sister's widowed mate.
Pack leader Darien Silver blames himself for his mate's death, and is tortured by doubts about and memories of her. When her twin arrives in his town, he finds himself bewitched, and when someone attempts to silence her, his entire pack and his way of life are in danger. Protecting the beautiful stranger might be his only way to protect his pack... and himself.
I was disappointed after reading the very first chapter of Destiny of the Wolf
and my disappointment only increased. While the first book in this series (Heart of the Wolf
) had flaws, it also had a distinctive feeling, an emotion to compensate. Destiny of the Wolf
had flaws and the lack of emotion was one of them. I found myself skipping page after page after page, searching something interesting to read, but except few places there and here, I did not find it.
I am sad to say it was a disappointment.
The heroine perplexed me if not irritated. I couldn't understand how she went from 'I came only for vengeance and don't want anything to do with him' to 'I'll do anything to keep him' in a matter of hours. Also, her personality was a complete contradiction: she was strong, but got dominated so easily. Even if it is an archaic society the heroes live in, heroine's behavior still grated on me. She was a slave who doesn't question anything, forgets her anger in a matter of seconds if kissed and still fancies herself a strong woman.
Actually, the whole book was a mess. Too much going on. The romance nearly absent. I didn't feel love at all, maybe lust, but that is reaching also. All I could see was lack of trust, communication and sex solving everything, or rather making problems magically disappear.
The final scene was a bit illogical at times and had way too many telling, but not showing the story parts.
Overall, Destiny of the Wolf
was a waste of time, money and energy. The book simply lacked charm to draw me in.
