Book 30 of 2009: Wolf Tales VI by Kate Douglas
In Wolf Tales VI, Eve visits Florida, where she is from originally. She stumbles into an old friend, Mei Chen, who is in a bit of trouble, and decides to help her out. The experience leads Eve to believe that Mei might be Chanku, though something seems a bit "off". Missing her packmates and wanting help with Mei, she calls "home" for help. Adam, the man she left behind, as well as Oliver, jump at the chance to come see Eve again, not knowing that there is another woman in the picture. Of course, Oliver is more than ecstatic to meet Mei when they reach Florida. Adam and Oliver agree that they are picking up something different about Mei though. Is she really Chanku? If so, what is it about her that makes her stand out from the rest of the pack?
Kate Douglas does a great job at building compelling characters. Adam is one intense guy! He has some very unique powers that are very helpful, and I don’t know what the members of the Chanku pack, especially Oliver, would do without him. This particular book has some jaw-dropping moments. I really wasn't expecting where Douglas went with Mei Chen's character at all. Let's just say, this book was very full of surprises! Readers will enjoy being able to absorb themselves in the magical world of Wolf Tales VI. It would be amazing to be surrounded by people like the characters in her books every day. But, since that obviously isn't going to happen, I will count on Kate Douglas to keep my fantasies rolling. Highly recommended.
