Blurb:  The heart of a warrior, the soul of a wolf, and the desires of a man…

For centuries, Cormack has lived between worlds—a man trapped in the body of a wolf, shunned by humans and shifters alike. Only one person has ever welcomed his company: Elen, a kindred outcast who is feared by others of her ancient Celtic race for her strange healing abilities.

Cormack has always valued Elen’s kindness and understanding, but after a desperate act of friendship causes Elen to free him from his curse, he realizes he wants more. He wants all of her—completely and forever.Except before Cormack can win Elen’s heart, Pendaran, the evil leader of the Guardians, captures her, determined to manipulate her incredible power to aid him in his twisted war against the shapeshifting tribes.

Now Cormack must use all of his skills as a warrior and a wolf to save the woman he loves—before Pendaran’s vile schemes destroy them all…

Review:   There are lots of parts to this series to recommend, like the great world this is set in and the background for the stories themselves, but it is missing just enough extra to push it into the what I consider really good.  I think it is because I would like to see a bit more going on.   In this book, we got a couple of higher level drama moments, either within the romance aspect of the story or in the confrontation with the bad guys, but outside of those bigger moments there doesn’t seem to be a lot going on.  I don’t think I liked this one quite as much as I liked the first two, but it has been a little while since I read them so I’m not 100% positive on that.

I was glad to get Cormack and Elen’s story with this book.  Cormack having been stuck as a wolf for centuries to only find himself able to finally shift and Elen and her powers continuing to grow and develop make them some of the more interesting characters in this series so far.  I was a little disappointed because of the previously mentioned, not a lot going on in between the bigger moments thing.  I guess I just expected this to have a bigger emotional impact than it did.  It was still good, but not as good as I hoped.
