Synopsis from Goodreads:

There is a balm in Gilead, to heal the wounded soul…

Jazz Phillips is on the run, fleeing from a fate most females in her pack accept as their lot in life; an arranged mating, something Jazz thought wasn't in her future as the Alpha's daughter and only child. She doesn't want to be the next Alpha's Mate. She doesn't want to be anyone's mate. She likes her life just the way it is until she finds herself stranded in the mountain town of Gilead, home to a small and close knit pack of wolvers. Once there, she begins to question her life as it was and begins to wonder about what it could be, especially in the arms of the wolver the people call Doc.

Doc Goodman claims to have settled in Gilead because he saw a need for his services, but in fact, he's a runaway, too. He's rejected his wolver heritage and the warring politics that stripped him of everything he loved most. He's biding his time, waiting to die, until he meets the blue haired, foul mouthed beauty who shows him there are still things worth living for and the most important of them are worth fighting for.

My Review:

Although all of the Wolver novels are tied together in a series, and rightfully so, I love the fact that each book has a completely unique story. Each is brilliant in its own right, but this one is my favourite so far. It’s more intense than its predecessors. At the same time, it still has the romance and heartfelt feelings that come so naturally to Rhoades.

With this novel Rhoades uses her phenomenal storytelling skills to turn a backwater town into a place where you want to go live. I feel like I was there in person rather than just reading about it. She evokes emotions in the reader in a way that is rarely seen. In less than a chapter I went from sitting on the edge of my seat scared, to crying, to laughing out loud. It was brilliant.

Rhoades goes much more in depth regarding what being a Wolver means. She also shows the difference between the different types of packs and of Wolvers. Not only does this immerse you further and further into this phenomenal world, but it also brings you closer to the character. You really get to understand who these people are, where they come from, and where they’re going. Not only that, but the characters are fundamentally well developed as individuals as well. I appreciate the fact that although not everyone is a main character, no one is unimportant. The sense of acceptance and love between the characters is beyond words.

With all of the building that Rhoades has done on Wolver culture and practices, it definitely leaves me wondering what she has planned for the next instalment in the series. Since these books keep getting better and better, I can’t wait!

  12. I must say I haven't read many werewolf stories, as in them being the main characters. I do love Maggie Stiefvaters Wolves of Mercy Falls trilogy and Jeanette Batista's Leopard Moon which has all kind of shifter's but the two MC are werewolf and leopard... This book sounds great for wolf lovers (like me)...
