WOLF TALES 12
The final chapter of Douglas’ series featuring a shapeshifting race is sexy, tense and complex. The novel satisfyingly ties up loose ends for longtime readers, while those new to the series may find the large cast of characters and multiple backstories overwhelming.
The Chanku, a shapeshifting race, have lived unnoticed among humans for thousands, possibly millions of years. Their special brand of sensuality connects them all, as do marriages, pregnancies and telepathy. Now, change is in the air, starting with a new understanding of their origins and a search for those who may not know that they are Chanku. A heroic deed and an attack on their Montana retreat highlight the pack’s strengths and vulnerabilities. They learn that together they can face any threat, and together is how they must face their future, where they will nurture their families and serve humankind. (APHRODISIA, Jul., 256 pp., $14.00)
