Elena Michael’s is the only female werewolf in the world. Her past has been filled with anger and violence, and for once Elena just wants to be human again.
After moving away from her pack, Elena is forced back to help hunt and kill rogue Werewolves who are challenging pack authority.
“Are you the welcoming committee? Or has Jeremy finally chained you up to the front gate where you belong?”
“I missed you too.”
This book was recommended to me by a friend some years ago, and it is Dreadfully good!! Elena is such a complex character. On the one hand, she is the mate of Clay, and she is desperately still in love with him, but he betrayed her by turning her into a werewolf. Her wolf once around her pack feels at home, but her human side is better away from the pack. She is capable of incredible anger but hates that about herself. She also Hates Clay about that too.
She is the strongest Tracker of her kind, and also the only female, a myth amongst her kind. She tracks rogue werewolves, and then mostly kills them. or warns them. Pack law is harsh.
“The truth is, if a werewolf behaved like this psychopath it wouldn’t be because he was part animal, but because he was still too human. Only humans kill for sport.”
Now Clay. oooo yummy. He’s pure crazy, killer, but he has a huge love for Elena. He’s much different from other Hero/Alpha male types that you see in Most Paranormal Romances. He’s a Killer, and he’s okay with that. He does what his pack leader/adopted father needs, whatever it takes.
“You forget, darling.
I am the local psychopath.”
Armstrong packs a powerful first book punch. Her story world is filled with loss, anger, death, blood, love, and family.
It’s also less mystical than the rest. It’s gritty enough that it’s not that unbelievable. The way she describes the transformation from humans to wolf is descriptive and ugly, not at all the sexy that you get used to in most Paranormal Romances.

If you like to read Crime novels, I recommend this to you 100% because, other than the odd change, it has all the mystery, violence and suspense of a good Crime novel.
