Sixteen-year-old werewolf princess Ashling Boru is different from other wolves—she was able to shift to wolf form at birth. Rather than bringing pride to her family, it brings fear, and as a result, she is forced to live in seclusion in Ireland’s countryside. Ashling’s reputation is further blackened when she refuses her betrothed and defies the ancient laws. When her pack’s oldest rivals begin hunting her, she finds herself in the small town of York Harbor, Maine—far from everything she’s ever known.
In Maine, she crosses paths with the dark and rebellious Grey Donavan, and something ignites within her soul. There’s just one problem: Grey is human. Their instant connection turns into a passionate romance, and Ashling begins to believe she can create her own life outside of wolf laws. When she begins to uncover long-buried pack secrets—secrets that threaten to destroy all she holds dear—Ashling’s courage and tenacity are tested. Will she choose her deep and enduring love for Grey, or will she follow Old Mother’s path to her destiny?
The characters in this book are very relatable. I found myself connecting to each one on a different level from the last. My heart felt for Ashling throughout the book and her story. I would love to say she was my favorite character because of her strength and determination to be loved and feel loved. She was not, however.
My favorite character was in fact Grey. Grey was magical to me in that he fought every step of the way to be with Ashling no matter the danger to himself. Once I really started reading this book I didn't want to put it down. I can't wait to start reading the other books in the series.
