A SAHM that reads and reviews romance (all sub genres of romance), Urban Fantasy & Sci-Fi, sometimes Horror, and YA (some sub genres of it).
I've been reading since I was my oldest daughter's age….thanks to R.L. Stine & Christopher Pike…and later on thanks to Anne Rice. Those 3 authors changed my life and I have been obsessed with reading ever since.
I have been a fan of Terry Spear’s Heart of the Wolf series since the moment I picked up the first couple of books in a used book store back in 2009. There is just something about Terry’s wolf shifters that I can’t get enough of, and I was excited to find out more about who would win over Tom’s heart in Silence of the Wolf.
Tom is the youngest of triplets and his two brothers have already found their mates. Tom hasn’t found his mate though because to me he has never really looked for her or dreamt of her. I actually thought he would never hook up with anyone and be the odd man out. Poor Tom!
Thank goodness Terry Spear proved me wrong and Tom ends up meeting his mate when she’s visiting Silver Town. Elizabeth is there to do a job and find out some information on what happened to her parents from a friend. She’s trying to meet up with him, but can’t if the pack members of Silver Town won’t let her out of her sight. Tom is not very excited on keeping a watch on Elizabeth due to his brother wanting him to make sure she does her job and no one interferes. (Because believe me there are several pack members that would love to hook up with the new shifter in town.) Tom though changes his mind, when he sees Elizabeth.
Elizabeth is like no other female character in Terry’s stories though. She’s half wolf and half coyote. I thought this was unique in the story and was intrigued to find out more about Elizabeth. I also found it fascinating when a certain character told Elizabeth what coyotes were related to and which wolf came first (gray or red). I loved Elizabeth’s character at times, but other times she was really stubborn. She didn’t want any help from anyone and she got herself in some messy situations, when she could have just asked for help.
I’ve known Tom from previous books and adored him. He was determined to win over Elizabeth, but not push her. He happened to be there for her at the right times and tried to coax her to accept his family. Elizabeth has her reasons to be weary about being apart of a pack.
I enjoyed reading Silence of the Wolf and give it 4 full moons and recommend it to paranormal romance readers out there. Silence of the Wolf has everything that paranormal romance readers will enjoy, plus some suspense and drama. Although, you don’t have to read in order to enjoy this series, I recommend it personally. Terry Spear has a way on writing wolves because she puts her research into her books about real wolves. She makes it feel realistic even when shifters are not actually real. (definitely wouldn’t mind a real sexy wolf shifter) =)
Oh…and other characters made a cameo in this book that I was happy about. =) Definitely wasn’t expecting that at all.
I received a complimentary copy of the book from publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
