An Unbreakable Bond
Morgan Carter is a claimed werewolf. Only her mate, Greyson Crawford, has the right to protect her, and to love her. But that hasn’t stopped rival packs from challenging Greyson’s claim. Morgan is the last silver wolf—the only female with the ability to produce werewolf offspring, which means there are many who would defy pack law to make her their own.

An Unstoppable Evil
When war comes to the Silver Wolf Clan on the eve of The Summit, Morgan and Greyson have no choice but to fight for their kind. With the arrival of an ancient enemy, the two realize that the war has only just begun, and to survive the greatest threat they have ever faced, they must learn to trust each other again…



Fourth and final in this series, Summit of the Wolf continues the story of Morgan, a rare silver wolf and her mate, Grey, a man with his wolf close to the surface at all times. Not only close to the surface, but he’s considered the most dangerous werewolf of all, and is known as a demon wolf. This is good because now that other packs know that a silver wolf exists, carloads of wolves are coming to fight for her. Doesn’t matter to them that she is mated already. Why? Because she is the only female wolf that is able to give birth.

These have all been novellas, but each has told a comprehensive and well written story. Of the four, the first one, Silver Wolf Clan, is still my favorite of all of them. And that is due to it being a story that I read non-stop as it was so well told. The premise is about a small family of campers being attacked by what they thought was a monster, and a man(Grey) that is able to save two of the three campers, only to wake alone after being bitten. Then he is alone with no idea that he is a werewolf. What he goes through by himself was a fascinating premise, and I have since read all of them. Each has featured Morgan, the camper that was saved by Grey, and Morgan’s little niece, Lana, daughter of Morgan’s sister that died in the attack. Recently married, even that fact doesn’t stop the wolves from coming in droves to fight Grey for her. Luckily the pack close by are friends of the couple and help when things get bad.

After a horrible fight, one with a bad outcome, they decide that they all need to go to the annual Summit of Wolves in order for all the wolves to meet Morgan and Grey in person to try to keep a lid on all the violence. Good idea or not? I am not telling, but there is lots of good world building about wolves in this part of the story.

The characters make these novellas for me. In addition to Morgan and Grey, there’s Marissa, a young wolf that has had her own time in hell. Now part of Grey’s small pack, she is one of my favorite characters. Dean and Rachel, the alpha and his wife of the other pack nearby, have been featured in all of the books and have been well realized by the author as well. The villain from the first book, Alexis, is back for this installment. And I have to say, she is pretty horrible!

I have enjoyed this whole series. The author has written a well rounded romantic series with a well thought out(and pretty perfect) ending that any shifter/werewolf adult reader will enjoy.

A copy of this novella was given to me by the publisher by way of Net Galley in exchange for a fair and honest review.

I’m Lorna and I live in Maryland. Since retiring, I spend my time mostly reading and reviewing books. My favorite reads are Paranormal Romance, Urban Fantasy, and Young Adult. I read a lot of indie books in addition to traditionally published books. Favorite paranormal creature? Vampires, but I am really liking werewolves more everyday.
