For three days out of thirty, when the moon is full and her law is iron, the Great North Pack must be wild.

If she returns to her Pack, the stranger will die.
But if she stays…

Silver Nilsdottir is at the bottom of her Pack’s social order, with little chance for a decent mate and a better life. Until the day a stranger stumbles into their territory, wounded and beaten, and Silver decides to risk everything on Tiberius Leveraux. But Tiberius isn’t all he seems, and in the fragile balance of the Pack and wild, he may tip the destiny of all wolves…

THE LAST WOLF wasn't an instant hit for me and I still can't decide if I would want to read more.

The beginning of THE LAST WOLF was very slow and I just didn't really totally understand what was going on. Even after the opening, I didn't really understand what and who I was reading about until I got to know the characters better.  Silver lives in a world where because she is crippled, she isn't considered an equal, but she is still very loyal to her pack mates.

The world building could have been better. The beginning tells the history of the pack, but It was hard to jump from that into the story as it felt like I was reading about the same character for a little bit. There were some pacing issues and also some things that were explained in weird ways.

Even months later I can't decide if I enjoyed THE LAST WOLF or if I just enjoyed getting through it. There was some good points, but there were also some things that needed some work. I don't think I would read more, but I'm not ruling it out either.

I gave it 2.5/5 stars
