Synopsis from Goodreads:

Madaline 'Maddie' Reed spends her restless and lonely nights exploring the eerie forest that borders her relatives manor. It is here in the unnerving shadows and darkness of these woods the fight for her life begins, and one kiss will change her fate forever.

Ashtine is an orphan taken in by the Dark Blood Brotherhood and trained to be a bounty hunter; he tracks and kills rogue wolves that hunt unsuspecting mortals who dare wander into the forests. This is where he finds Maddie. With one bite, he changes the course of his destiny. With one kiss, the course of his life.

My Review:

What a charming and extremely well written novella. It is fast paced and very thorough considering the length of the story. The author never skims over any topics, nor does she try to fit in more details than the story allows. Everything in the novel has a purpose and a place. Shire lays the scene out before you in a manner that makes you believe that you are there with the characters.

The main characters are very well developed and draw you in. You cannot help but want to travel with them in their future journeys. You learn about their pasts and their personalities. They seem like such real people (er.... wolves???). At the end of the novella you find yourself wanting to know how their journey ends, needing to read the sequel. I can’t wait to get my hands on other works written by this amazing author.
