Review: Mystic Wolves



What would you do if a simple errand takes a deadly twist, turning you from cautious prey to dangerous predator?

Someone is trying to send a deadly message to Mason, arranging the deaths of those he loves and it puts the entire pack and Alpha on high alert. Darcy understands the primal instincts driving her beloved Mason's commands. With the help of those he sets as protectors, she learns about herself and the things she'll need to help support her Alpha and pack. When events turn dire however, one truth offers her strength - once given, oaths are unbreakable ... even if it means risking it all.

I found this novella to be an enjoyable read.  While action packed, it is the characters themselves that make the story.  I was rather impressed with how well the characters are fleshed out.  In novellas I usually find that silly little things such as a character’s motivations are left out.   There is still quite a bit of mystery about some of the secondary characters but I feel as though I know Darcy and Mason rather well.

This story was written in the first person from Darcy’s perspective yet it is really Mason that steals the show.  He is truly a good man full of honor and love for Darcy and his pack.  I was really impressed by how he put aside his own needs to ensure that Darcy knew just how important she is to him and how much he loves and needs her.

I did find a few editing errors however they didn’t detract from the story at all.  What I did find that did was the reminders of how much in lust with each other Darcy and Mason are.  There is just so many times a person can hear that someone is a good kisser before it really starts to get old.  If it wasn’t for that redundancy I would have rated this story much higher.

I rate this story a 3.5 out of a possible 5.
