In the big picture, she and the wolves were a natural match. (Oh more than you know Sela. More than you know!) WO-O-OF! Now that was one intensely captivating unique story! I loved the curiosity & almost immediate pull between Sela and Rio! And how can you not love the opening piece where all Sela wants is some food, while everyone seems to just want her to leave. I found the whole thing so funny and odd at first, but the second time reading the book made that part all the more hilarious! Yes, you did read that right - I finished the book then flipped right back to the beginning and read it again! I PAWSITIVELY LOVED IT!! I was completely enthralled with the story! I love all things Wolf! Like their rules & laws, the history behind each character - their human & Wolf side, as well as the history of the Pack & town. I loved the humor and playfulness of Blackie. This is my first Black Hills Wolves story as well as my first Katalina book and WOW! What an enchanting story! I think that the best way I could pay tribute to such a momentous occasion of punching my double v-card would be to follow it up with my second experience for both – that’s right! Katalina’s second book in the Black Hills Wolves #25 – Uncaged comes out August 21, 2015 and I can’t wait to read it! Her writing style is awesome, captivating the reader from the beginning and holding it throughout the story. I loved the playfulness, the romance, friendship, the way the town and its people all band together to form their own family, it is all just so FANGERRIFIC! Of course my favorite part is all things Wolf and Mate and everything that happens AFTER the Mating! After all, that is why I read Shifter books in the first place – because of the magic behind the human-animal and for the One True Mate factor! Anything else I want to add here will give too much away, but I think you will agree that those are two of the main characteristics that should be in all GRRREAT Shifter stories! Reading a multi-book series that is written by numerous authors sounded intriguing, but I wasn’t sure how it would work. Since I just discovered it, I was worried I would have a LOT of reading to do to catch up since there are a whopping 25 books in the series already!! But the best I could figure out was that each book was a stand-alone with each author maybe having past characters of theirs appear in their newer books, but each story has an ending and doesn’t carry onto the next book. Now that I have had my first taste of the Black Hills Wolves series I cannot wait to read them all!
