Publisher's Summary

Harlan Mundelein, the Knotted Wolf, the soldier at heart who used to be the guy who got things done, is fading.

It's been a long and pointless battle, and he can finally see the day coming that he'll be eternally reunited with his Eventine. He's ready and his mind is made up: he is not getting a One True Mate.

His mate is gone. So why does Leilani, a female who has mysteriously appeared to him twice in his lifetime, stir his blood in a way that makes no sense at all...especially when he knows she is not his mate?

Different, but just as good as the rest of the ser

I'm really enjoying this book. I'm about half way to three quarters of the way through the book. This book is different than the others. I like how this book starts in the present to show where everyone is currently at, then it jumps to the past to show where everyone started, then back to the present to show where everyone ends up. However, I decided I needed to write part of my review early because I don't like what Harlan did to Jaggar… Twice! Yes, I understand he wanted to get his point across the first time and the second... well, I can't say why he did it the second because it will spoil it, but he could have found a better way. Poor Jaggar!

Now that I'm done, I can tell you that I absolutely adore this book. I loved getting to know more of the OTM characters. I'm so happy for Harlan, Eventine, and the whole gang, especially Troy. YAY! Well, all except Jaggar. Poor Jaggar. I can't express how deeply I feel for him. His poor heart. I can't wait to read his book next, which I'm off to start now. Well done to the author.

LOVED!!

I loved all the prior books and after reading the reviews for this this book where others said it was too confusing or that Evie was awful, I almost didn't listen to it. I'm so glad I decided to listen. The time travel is not too confusing and explains the Leilani sightings in previous books. Evie is great. I loved how she knew Harlan was hers and then went after him and defended what was hers from that awful female. I felt bad for Jagger and Leilani and I cant wait to read their story. Also, TROY!! I already have books 8 and 9 in my library ready to start listening. Do yourself a favor and do not skip this one. It is GREAT!!

Confusing Story

I was confused with this story. The time travel, future, past or present. I didn't know for a while if it was Harlan/Evie or Harlan/Leilani.

I didn't like Evie at all. I thought she was selfish. All she wanted was Harlan and didn't seem to care what it did to Leilani. I did a lot of skipping chapters in this story. I didn't particularly like Harlan either. I can't put my finger on why but he rubbed me the wrong way.

I understand Ms. Ladew was trying something different with this story but it was not good for me. This is the first story in the series that I feel compelled to leave a bad review. I'm hoping the next story will be better.

Blah Blah Blah I am Right 👀

This book did not do it for me. I know a lot of reviewers stated that this book felt disjointed and it is too different then the other books. I however did not feel that way. What made this book not the best was the fact Eventine was selfish the entire time. I understand that this is a love story and the goal is to have the two main characters together but that does not mean one of them should sacrifice an innocent for love.

There were moments where I could not believe how Eventine treated Leilani. At first you would think that Eventine is trying to protect Leilani from everything but then you delve deeper and you see that she is only concerned about getting back to HER life and to Harlan. It took her until Chapter 38 in order for her to realize that she is not the one in charge. Her life is over and she needs to let Leilani live. I am not looking forward to reading about Eventine again but I do know that she is going to play a role in Night of the Beast.

I really hope that Eventine plays a little part in the next book and all of the books after. I do not think I can handle her high handedness and her just be abrupt with everyone. I have a feeling that she is going to feel special that she is the only wolfen female alive.

Don’t give up on this book try it twice

Yes it’s hard to follow but I went back a book and re listened from about chapter 20 to the end and then began this one again and it fit so much better. Heck it was the next day and I sure didn’t catch that the first time at the beginning.
It truly didn’t mess up the second time cuz I tell ya I was 20 chapter s in and decided that I had no clue of wtf was going on and reread bruin’s book and the began again and tracked it the whole time. It was really great made you laugh cry hope and wonder. So try it more than once you’ll like it.
Great narration and a good story.

Better than I was lead to believe

Others have complained about how hard this book was to follow, but I think it was the most well written in the series. I'm not saying there weren't some sections that were a little hard to follow, but the extent to which Lisa captures Harlan's character and the visceral feeling ADHA can produce were awesome.
I also like how this book really tied all the other books together by showing us the 'outsider's' perspective.
To make getting through the book easier just do the audio version. It's a lot easier to just get an idea of what's going on and Michael Pauley did a great job of letting us 'feel' the events as they happened.
