Ellison's story

Ellison Rowe, a Lupine Shifter, makes it his goal to protect Maria, once held captive by ferals, from male Shifters looking for mates. He likes Maria's resilience and fire, but she's been broken, and Ellison wants more than anything to heal her. When a new danger threatens Shiftertown's cubs, Maria partners with Ellison to stop a cold-blooded criminal.

I’m on a major reading binge. I can’t seem to get enough of Jennifer Ashley’s Shifters Unbound series. I was pretty excited to read Lone Wolf, because the hero is Ellison, a shifter that I really loved from previous books. And I absolutely adored Lone Wolf, although it is as good as other books in the series.

What I Liked:

  • Ellison is sooo dreamy. Again, Ashley has created a hero that I can so get behind. Ellison is responsible, kind, caring, and once he commits to someone, he commits.
  • Although it was sad, I loved seeing how wonderful Ellison was with his sister. It made me sad he had to go through that, but he was determined to help her anyway he could.
  • I liked how determined Maria was to start her life over. She wants to put her traumatic past behind her, which isn’t easy. Her determination is wonderful.
  • Ellison is so patient with Maria, which is something she needed. He was willing to wait until she was ready, and that always makes me happy.
  • Olaf, the polar bear shifter cub, was as adorable as ever. He has become a favorite character of mine throughout the story.
  • Cris Dukehart continues to be a great narrator for this series.

What I Struggled With:

  • The suspenseful/mystery bit didn’t really work for me completely. Sometimes I couldn’t believe all the aspects of it.
  • Although I did want Ellison and Maria to be together, I did feel a bit disconnected from their story.
  • While I do love Cris Dukehart’s narration, her accent for Maria wasn’t the best.

Final Thoughts:

My love for the Shifters Unbound series by Jennifer Ashley knows no bounds, however, Lone Wolf isn’t my favorite.

    You’re convincing me on this series though this isn’t the one I think I should start with. I love that a character you really liked got a story that was enjoyable even if it wasn’t perfect. I hate when a character I’ve really been wanting to read about ends up with the most meh book in the series.

    I’m sorry this one didn’t work out as well for you. I’m thinking I need to try the audio versions of this series now. Glad you are still having fun with it!
