“Win the love of the wolf with the hardest heart.”
Faced with eternal banishment to hell, Anubis, god of the underworld, has found a loophole in one of the oldest laws which will allow him to unleash his evil on an unsuspecting human world. Orion’s only hope to stop him is to accept his challenge: send a champion to win the love of the wolf with the hardest heart. It will take someone with a pure heart to soften a closed one, so faced with the threat of losing not only the werewolves, but the destruction of the human race, the gods can only do one thing — send Adam, one of their own.
Adam quickly realizes that the werewolf whose love he must win is Jed. Wounded after the loss of his wife and son, Jed promised he would never love again or be responsible for someone else’s happiness. Adam has been given a near impossible task.
Anubis is eager to see Adam fail, and unbeknown to everyone takes matters into his own hands to make sure of it. Everything happening now is part of his master plan, and finally it has come full circle.
Even if Adam succeeds and wins Jed’s heart, will that love survive when Jed discovers the whole thing was nothing more than a bet? Or when Adam does the one thing he mustn’t and falls in love himself, will he not only break Jed’s heart but completely destroy his own?
For fans of the Sirius Wolves series you will be used to getting three books covering each group of four and having to deal with some pretty epic cliffhangers from our dear Victoria Sue. This one is different for a number of reasons not least that it’s just one book so you are not left hanging/dying at the end of it.
The title is apt as the story does indeed come Full Circle and there are a few “aha” moments along the way. Anubis has been a pretty sneaky baddie throughout the series and just as it looks as though he will finally be sent back to hell he comes out fighting once again with a challenge to Orion and Sirius. The gods are left with little option but to accept his challenge however this one hits very close to home.
Adam is sent to earth to “win the love of the wolf with the hardest heart” – not an easy task for someone who isn’t au fait with the ways of wolves or humans and who has only been given fourteen days. The consequences are dire if he should fail and there are dark powers at work to ensure that he does – for this is a game that has been in motion for many years and Adam, unbeknownst to him, is the prize.
Jed lost his wife and child and is resolute in not feeling that kind of pain again. Dedicated to his pack but adamant he will never fall in love again he is left shaken yet curious after meeting Adam. Their relationship left me nervous throughout – for Adam to succeed in his task Jed was going to get hurt again and I really didn’t want Jed to get hurt.
Lots of twists and turns along the way as you would expect from this author and in my opinion a perfect complement to one of my favourite recent series. Now to start nagging for more of our favourite wolves!
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
