Review: A Wolf Apart by Maria Vale

Maria Vale’s new series, The Legend of All Wolves, is some of the best werewolf fiction I’ve read in years. It’s right up there with Anne Bishop’s Others series, and I love Vale’s stories for much the same reason: they both explore what it might actually be like to be a werewolf, and the expression of werewolf psychology is fascinating.

In this latest installment of Vale’s series, the psyche at issue is Elijah Sorensson’s, and it’s under serious pressure. Werewolves shouldn’t live away from their packs at all–and they definitely shouldn’t live in New York City. But Elijah is nothing if not loyal to his pack, so he follows the rules. Mostly. . .

Right up until he meets Thea Villalobos, a human woman different from the ones who usually inhabit Elijah’s world.

What follows is a human-werewolf love story different from any others on the market today–and brilliant in its execution. I continue to be fascinated by the wolves of the Great North Pack and I can’t wait to read more!

Can a human truly make room in her heart for the Wild?
Thea Villalobos has long since given up trying to be what others expect of her. So in Elijah Sorensson she can see through the man of the world to a man who is passionate to the point of heartbreak. But something inside him is dying…

Elijah Sorensson has all kinds of outward success: bespoke suits, designer New York City apartment, women clamoring for his attention. Except Elijah despises the human life he’s forced to endure. He’s Alpha of his generation of the Great North Pack, and the wolf inside him will no longer be restrained…

She sizes me up quickly with eyes the color of ironwood and just as unyielding.
“Thea Villalobos,” she says, and it takes me a moment to get my breath back.
Thea Villalobos. Goddess of the City of Wolves.
