“If she know how strongly he felt, she'd have run out the door. He wasn't used to the possessive, or the savage joy she brought to his heart. It ate at his control, so he turned his attention to the music. He understood music.”
The first time I read Cry Wolf I found it unimpressive, having read a big amount of books in the same genre I was making comparisons in every page and every situation. To call myself unfair is an understatement.
The second time around I realized the Cry Wolf is actually a very a beautiful book!!!
I loved Charles!!! he is a perfect hero, tortured just enough to make him mysterious, alpha in all his glory and a man very much in love!
Anna troubled me, I found her reactions almost childish! I know she was abused, I know it’s not easy for her to trust another male wolf but come on honey it’s alright to get action between the sheets and then panicking when realizing how deep you are into this Mate At First Sight situation?!?!?!.....
But this book gave me something that the rest books of the same genre had failed to give me and that’s “food for thought”.
The immortality (or high level of mortality) issue is usually taken for granted in almost all Paranormal books and its OK when by the end of the book the MC’s have their mates and they live in a closed community, but in Cry Wolf we find out that it’s not easy being immortal. It’s not easy living in a mixed community and making ties that are bound to be broken by the passing of time, it’s not easy losing friends, and it’s not easy falling in love again and again or losing your mate. Samuel and Bran are main characters in this book and they are both tortured by their immortality, Samuel having lost wife after wife and never truly recovering and Bran losing his mate early on their relationship has made the deliberate choice of being in a loveless mating. This problem is so palpable that you can almost feel it, and you can actually taste the bitterness of those wolves.
By the end of the book you get a bittersweet feeling, Charles and Anna are together and I’m sure they are bound to face a lot of problems but they are actually Together. But my heart still aches for the other characters Samuel (is my absolute favorite in the Mercy series too), Bran and Asil are still in my thoughts and I’m hoping that in the next books they are going to find their peace.
“And that's when Anna realized that what the wolf had been asking Bran for was death.
Impulsively, Anna stepped away from Charles. She put a knee on the bench she'd been sitting on and reached over the back to close her hand on Asil's wrist, which was lying across the back of the pew.
He hissed in shock but didn't pull away. As she held him the scent of wilderness, of sickness, faded. He stared at her, the whites of his eyes showing brightly while his irises narrowed to small bands around his black pupil.
"Omega," he whispered, his breath coming harshly.”
“Bran was always a deceptive bastard, gentle and mild right up until he ripped your throat out. He had many other fine qualities as well”
