Sebastian Xenakis is still coming into his power as a wizard. He can shapeshift by magical means and runs as a wolf using the power he draws from the elements. But young women are dying—raped by a human and then slaughtered by a wolf. Suspicion falls on the shapeshifting Chanku, but Sebastian wonders if he might somehow be guilty of the crimes.

Then he meets Lily Cheval, the uncrowned princess of the powerful Chanku, and realizes he will do whatever it takes to clear his name and win her love. But evil walks where Sebastian goes, and there are mysteries neither Lily nor her father, the powerful wizard, Anton Cheval, cannot unravel. Is Sebastian the perfect mate for Lily, or is he instead, one she should fear?

My Review

This is the first book I have read of Kate Douglas and what a whirlwind journey it was! She is able to blend a serious storyline and a romance into one intriguing plot! And a Paranormal story as well, makes it my kind of book!

Both of the main characters in this story have that Alpha vibe about them. Lily is the daughter of two very powerful parents so has been destined to be an important figure in the Chanku clan. I liked her a lot as she is a very independent and confident person and will do anything to protect her family and the pack. So when girls are being murdered, she is willing to put herself out there to find the killer.

Sebastian has lived a sheltered life with his mother and only pursued his father, against his mothers wishes, after she died. He has lived in-between two of his fathers’ houses learning more about the magical abilities he possesses. He has a very strong Mage, but doesn’t understand the depth of magic that he has until he meets Lily.

There are forces out there that are manipulating Sebastian and together Lily and Sebastian use their abilities to find out who that is and to discover who is conducting the murders. Sebastian is able to learn a lot about the pack and how close they are and finally he may be able to find acceptance.

Dark Wolf was a fun read and I must admit I was drawn to the cover first. Seriously, look at that hot guy! The story was very fast paced and the relationships between the characters build quickly! The bedroom scenes are raunchy and not always limited to one partner and in some cases mixed couples. It is the first book of a steamy new paranormal series and I look forward to future books!

I received a copy of this book from the Publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
