The lone wolf answers to no alpha or pack. From his first transformation, he knows his destiny: to be both judge and executioner for rogue werewolves. Welcome to the spellbinding first book in New York Times bestselling author N.J. Walters intense new werewolf series.
White wolf Devlin Moore has spent nearly the last century following his destiny: hunting rogue werewolves. His fate is to be the only one of his kind—hardened, feared, and brutally ruthless. Only now, Devlin’s not alone. There are two others. And if that wasn’t unsettling enough, Devlin is drawn to New York City for what appears to be a human…
As far as Devlin can tell, vibrant artist Zoe Galvani is no threat. But there’s something about her— from her unusual eyes that look similar to the same shocking hue as his own, to his growing need to mark her as his that suggests magical forces may be at play.
Now there’s no escaping each other, or the attraction that grows stronger by the second. But no one, especially a human woman, should have this effect on a lone wolf. And just when he’s sure that having her could be his undoing…the truth steps out of the shadows.
Taming the White Wolf kicks off a new series for Walters. It explores the lore of the lone wolf, used by packs to kill rogues. Except, there are 3 lone wolves in this story. I’m guessing future books will feature the other 2 lone wolves.
Devlin is the white wolf and finds himself in New York City hunting a rogue who has marked a human. But, unexpectedly, he feels a strong connection to this woman, even though lone wolves never mate. Zoe is a bit of a loner herself-no family, no real friends. She feels the connection too, but as a human, accepting the idea that werewolves are real and so is magic-its all a bit much. Plus, now they are trying to kill her.
The story builds the world since it is book one. Mages are trying to steal the immortality of the lone wolves. The wolves must figure out how to stop it, but also understand why, for the first time ever, there are 3 of them instead of just one. I found the story interesting and I enjoyed the characters. I do plan to continue the series because I want to see how everything pans out. I have always enjoyed NJ Walter’s wolf books, and this one met my expectations!
