Caedmon Wolves series in order:
Posted August 23, 2014
Ambrielle Kirk’s “Wolf’s Strength” is the fifth book in her Caedmon Wolves series. If you like the Black Dagger Brotherhood books by J.R. Ward, you’ll enjoy the Caedmon Wolves series. It’s basically BDB but with werewolves instead of vampires. Each book focuses around a couple and each couple’s relationship is different, so it keeps the books feeling very fresh. Number 5 involves a very fierce fighter of a leading lady wolf, Naomi, and a smokin’ hot leading male wolf, Blake. The sex scenes are superb! I love the concept of true mates! There is also a bigger story that arcs through all of the books, which also draws you into the series. My only small complaint is that the books are a smidge short. I really would like to know more of each couple’s story! Can’t wait to keep reading this series to see where it goes next.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

The sizzle of tension runs like wildfire throughout Wolf’s Strength by Ambrielle Kirk. From the high octane romance to the raging conflict between two wolf packs and the Others. Blake DeLuca of the Caedmon Pack and Naomi Valentine of the Arnou Pack are fated mates belonging to rival packs. Both hold positions of power and influence, both are loyal to their packs and their duties, but how can they NOT be loyal to their hearts? How does one choose between one’s destined lover and one’s pack? They have been meeting secretly for years, or so they thought.
Ambrielle Kirk has created a “dog eat dog” world where true love is a gift to be treasured. She has populated her world with outstanding characters, great chemistry, and of course the deceit that power-hungry factions bring to the table. In a truly brilliant move, Ms. Kirk has taken us inside the mind of a wolf filled with rage, chaos and determination. You will feel the fury and sense the power that emanates from within. Ms Kirk writes with a sense of confidence in her world that is felt in every page.
Fast-paced, riveting, often brutal, will love survive?

The intriguing battle between the two main wolf packs continues in this riveting new Caedmon Wolves story. I was totally caught up in the story from beginning to end and found the story enjoyable and entertaining with captivating characters. The author has created a fantastic and thrilling world of shifters with her own rules and elements. While the story could be read on its own, I recommend that the series be read in order to really get the full impact of the history and the battle between the packs and the characters. If you have been following the series then be prepared for tears come to your eyes during a couple of scenes in this story.

I was gifted a copy in exchange for an honest review.
I really enjoyed this book. I haven’t read the others in the series, so I missed some of the background of the characters. With saying that, I was still able to have a good idea about what was happening in the story.
Blake and Naomi are fated mates that can’t truly be together because they are a part of rival packs. They try to meet up when they can, but with what is going on between all the packs, it’s making it hard and hard for them to be together.
Blake has been almost begging Naomi to run away with him, but as she always reminds him, they have duties to their packs. Blake is a part of the head council and Naomi’s job is to protect her pack. Will they ever be able to have their eternal bond like they are meant to? Or will they forever be sneaking off to have stolen moments with each other?
Though Blake and Naomi had a lot of obstacles in their way, you are constantly rooting for them to finally be together.
Though the story is truly about Blake and Naomi, you also get some side plots from the other characters that are still entertaining and don’t pull away from Blake and Naomi’s story.
If you are love to read paranormal books and love some steamy scenes this is the book for you! I’m definitely going to go back and read the other books in the series :)

3.5 stars for "Wolf's Strength"
This book has a lot to offer; Naomi and Blake are great characters, their origin story is really unique in the landscape of paranormal romance, they’re mates from rival packs. I also enjoyed the fact that Ms. Kirk’s writing really explores the dual nature of shifters; we get narrative from the point of view of a raging werewolf, I never read that POV before. I also like the conflict of the storyline; familiar characters pop up for a stroryline update, but its never stale or boring, (If you missed a few books you’ll be fine reading this one) but the new enemy is very BAD, with a new twist on the genre. I rooted against them for the entire book.
Fav Character: Tristen Arnouu
Fave Line: “Blakes eyes glazed and he began seeing everything in vivid red, but things were clearer nonetheless. His body shuddered as he fought the emergence of his angry wolf. There was no subduing his animal any longer. The wolf was his other half. They completed each other and the both hungered…
Shade: I wish there was more description of the characters and of the setting. There were some slight mechanical issues as well.
I’m jus sayin: This is a good addition to a great series.

Wolf's Strength (Caedmon Wolves, #5) by Ambrielle Kirk
Blake DeLuca of the Caedmon Pack and Naomi Valentine of the Arnou Pack are fated mates belonging to rival packs. They have been secretly seeing each other for years putting off their eternal bond. Hostility grows between the Caedmons, the Arnous and the Others threatening a civil war. Naomi needs to make a choice to be with her true love or the duty to her pack.
Wolf's Strength is an attention grabbing thrilling novel. I couldn’t put this 147 page book down. It has a bit of everything: great characters, conflict, forbidden love, power struggles, deception, and more.
Both Blake and Naomi are strong characters; Blake being one of six members on the Caedmon Council and Naomi being one of Arnous Elite. They are both loyal and have duties to protect their factions. They agree not to talk pack politics when they are with each other, cherishing their stolen time together. They are perfect for each other but have a lot of obstacles in their way.
There is never a dull moment in Wolf's Strength. Both the main story and sub plots will keep you entertained. It is amazing all the information and story lines that are packed (no pun intended) into this novel. This is a great book for lovers of paranormal romance.
