Sienna Lauren is surprised how well she’s coped since leaving the PsyNet, and joining the Snow Dancer wolf pack. Her one weakness is the dangerous wolf pack Alpha, Hawke. She hates the way he pretends to ignore her by seeming to glance from beneath his lashes, thinking she doesn’t notice. He might be older and grumpier than her, but she knows there’s a soft side in the way he looks out for the young pups.
Hawke tries his best to keep his distance from Sienna, telling himself she’s too young for mating, plus she’s Psy, and he’s also got many responsibilities. When their enemies begin covert operations in his territory, all those old enough to fight must keep alert. Snow Dancer and the Dark River Leopards combine their troops and healers, to teach the Pys they aren’t helpless.

This is the tenth story in the fascinating other world tales of the Psy series. It tells Hawke and Sienna’s story, as they struggle for survival. Sienna comes into her more dangerous stage, then has to fight within herself for control. Hawke is man of integrity and an ideal hero, as he fights to save his pack and try to court Sienna. But there’s also the problem of how wild his wolf is, as it challenges him.

Sienna has fought her needs and desires while growing up and after learning to show no emotion as a child, she now knows what desire and rejection feel like. The deadly fire inside of her begins to seep out when she isn’t expecting it. Can she keep it leashed? There is no one to turn to for help, so she must calm it down by herself. The other shape-shifter characters are also brought to life, as their daily lives become inter-twined.

Ms. Singh has written another interesting tale that for me, was a page turner I’d definitely read again.

This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
