Publisher's Summary

One night, Callum is driven into the woods by instinct - an instinct to protect. In the form of wolf, he meets a young human child who he is instantly drawn to in a fierce way he doesn't quite understand.
Sonia Arlington has lived a lonely life. She has certain abilities that make her strange and she has a rare disease that, if untreated, could kill her. Her father makes her vow that she will never let others discover her abilities. This forces Sonia to stay distant, always guarding against exposure.
Intelligence leaks that Sonia is Callum's human mate. He is now King of the Werewolves and has war on his hands. He's forced to claim his mate and integrate Sonia into a world that is strange and frightening.
As Sonia attempts to adjust, Callum attempts to cope with the knowledge that his mate is mortal. He will have her beauty and gentleness only the length of a mortal life, making their union unbearably bitter, even as Sonia makes it unbelievably sweet.

Mixed Speeds

My first thought is that Lucien in book 1 was like a slow aching burn that lead to intense satisfaction and Callum on the other hand is more like the fast and furious. HIs style is very primal, to say the least. This relates to their relationships with their women. I really liked this book. The story was compelling, especially since I knew it was part of a bigger story, so some of the little things did not bother me as much. I have to say I enjoyed this narrator so much better than the one that read book1. NO constant whispering in this one! Hallelujah. Be warned, Callum is full on Alpha Male and exerts his 'highness' on a consistent basis with his preconceived mate and pretty much everyone else. On the other hand Sonia is utterly submissive for most of the story, to the point of frustration. K.A. Has a habit of building her female characters up to a point of being strong, instead of having them start out strong. She does this often. Still not used to it. Wish she would stray from this every now and then.

Not quite as good as #1

I don't know exactly why, but I didn't enjoy this book as much as the first one. For one thing, it was pretty predictable. In addition, the Hero and Heroine were in conflict for too much of the book, for my taste. I found myself getting impatient for a resolution. I guess I was hoping for more focus on the details of the prophecy and the plans for the upcoming war. It wasn't a bad book, just dragged a bit. I'm still ready for book #3 , however.

The narration was excellent, which is no surprise from Ms Blume. On to #3.

This is one of the best audiobooks I have listened to, was narrated so well that it brought the story and characters to life straight from the pages while you listen and read ...
