A top secret team of wolf shifters, the Alpha Pack are former Navy SEALS that use their Psy powers to take on the world’s greatest predators. But while each member is loyal to the pack, it can be hard to deny the call of desire…
Still tormented by his recent captivity, Alpha Pack commander Nick Westfall isn’t sure he’s fit to lead—especially when he meets the one woman he can’t claim without reliving the torture he endured at the hands of a rogue vampire.
Vampire princess Calla Shaw has seen her own share of heartbreak, but she can tell that the wild attraction she and Nick feel for each other could turn into something significant—if only he’d let it. But Calla isn’t about to give up on her mate without a fight.
Time is running out, not only for Nick to claim his mate, but for Calla and her coven. A vampire war is on the horizon, one the Alpha Pack can’t hope to win if their leader can’t pull himself back from the abyss…
WOLF'S FALL presented a protagonist with PTSD due to a torture incident with a vampire which was a pretty interesting problem to load onto a character. While I don't know to much about what PTSD is like I thought it portrayed the struggles of someone who has gone through a heavy trauma very well. He's not completely fixed by the end through magically finding 'the one' which I though was very respectful and posed an unique problem when Nick finds himself attracted to Calla, a vampire which brings on the torture flashbacks and anxiety for Nick.
His relationship with Calla; while that of instant attraction actually starts off as a nice partnership which quickly becomes a romance. It was kind of nice to have the couple not have any real animosity towards eachother especially since I've been reading a lot of those types of romances lately. There's no hate-to-love here, just them coping with their own internal issues and eventually coming together in the end once they learn to accept their loses.
As a backdrop to Nick and Calla's relationship development is the characters' race to prevent a vampire war. The worldbuilding and the intriguing politics are pretty fascinating. While WOLF'S FALL can be read as a standalone I'd reccommend reading some of the previous books to get a better grasp on who is who and what is happening especially since the events that happen in this book are a direct result of what happened in the previous COLE'S REDEMPTION.Series Titles:
