This novella is third in the series Silver Wolf Clan and
follows on from BLACK WOLF'S REVENGE. By now, Morgan the
recently-turned silver werewolf has learned to cope with
being a shapeshifter and this book becomes an adult romance
as she adapts to her new status in the pack.
In BRAND OF THE PACK, leader Grey is determined to
protect Morgan and doesn't rush her into anything, but pack
rituals include branding, which I found unpleasant, even
for the valued silver wolf. This isn't found in most
shifter stories and seems designed to force a pack to stay
together. Other pack leaders are determined to add the
prized, rare silver wolf to their own pack so Grey will
have his work cut out, and Morgan is furious that her own
wishes are not considered by the dominant males.
I found it amusing that Morgan has difficulty shifting,
since she's become reluctant to let loose her wolf form,
and when she does she is marking her territory with scent
and seeking out old smelly things while her hidden human
side considers this disgusting. Watch your pet dog
sometime! They are wolves under the skin. Morgan's friends
still want to eat out for their birthdays and protect small
children, but bigger issues come to the fore as several
fights are the main focus of this instalment.
If you have been following Tera Shanley's Silver Wolf Clan series you will
have seen Morgan growing in strength, and by now she is more
mature and on better terms with this terrifying change. So
it's appropriate that now she should move on to a full
romance as well. If you've enjoyed the earlier books you
will also love BRAND OF THE PACK.
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?
