Our Review:

Reviewed by Shirley ~ 5 stars


I so love this series. The characters jump out at you, especially Meryn, she is one crazy lady but so lovable with it.

The stories are about fated love. The lovemaking is so beautifully written that you wish, if you were single, that you could meet that special someone that Alanea Alder portrays in her books.

This book is about Ellie, an elephant shifter, and a first-class paediatrician. Her life hasn't been easy because of her fuller figure which has caused a lot of people to call her nasty names and make very derogatory remarks. This has made her very insecure about herself and has made her sworn off men and she has given up her dream of ever meeting her mate and having lots of children of her own.

Ellie's friend Kari has called her for help. A mysterious illness is affecting the shifter children in Noctem Falls where Kari lives. Ellie could not let her friend down especially as it concerned children. She quickly packed up supplies and made her way to Noctem Falls. She had the shock of her life when she came face to face with her fated mate.

Grant is a timber wolf shifter and a warrior. He had been cruelly treated in his past which has made him a man of few words and someone who doesn't do well in company. But all that was going to change when Ellie came into his life. All his preconceived ideas were blown out of the water.

The change in Grant was a sight to behold and all the people around him could not help noticing and were so pleased and happy that this fine warrior had finely met his fated mate.

Their love blossomed and Grant wanted to make sure that this woman, whom he loved with an intensity so great was made to realize that she was a beautiful person inside and out and was going to do his level best to knock out all her insecurities from her mind. Grant set out to show exactly how much he loved her curves.


“He bent down and nipped at her fingers until she moved them. "All of you belongs to me. How could you think I wouldn't love every inch of you.””


Ellie had not felt so loved and cherished in all her life. At last she felt at peace with herself.

There is a lot going on in Noctem Falls. Surprises all round. With favourite characters making the story interesting and making this a real page turner. Again, as always, a really great read which I couldn't put down. This series I would recommend everyone to read. A real winner all round Ms Alder.
